Even when I'm travelling I still like to feel put together and a bit more alive looking, than if I went without makeup.

Travel has been the love of my life since I first left Australia by myself at 18 to spend a month travelling around Europe. The mixed emotions of fear and complete excitement as I walked to my gate to fly off to an unknown country, all by myself, I will never forget. Even today after travelling to various countries around the world I still get that same fear and excitement I got at 18, flying off into the unknown.
