In 2017, I was named as ‘one to watch’ by WGSN – the global trend forecasting agency – in their New Makeup Artists: Ones To Watch report. I wasn’t exactly “new to the game” at the time, but it was nice to finally getting noticed for the work I was doing using only natural, organic and sustainable beauty practices.
So imagine my delight, three years on, that I am actually a fully-fledged freelance writer and have just had my first “Ones To Watch” sustainable beauty report published, with a second commission in the bag.
When I started Untainted Magazine in 2017, I was just looking for a place to publish my thoughts, ideas and high concept beauty editorials in the eco-beauty space, without having to metaphorically lower my voice to meet the demands of beauty advertisers. I had no intention of becoming a freelance writer, but it turns out I really enjoy research and writing and have turned a hobby into a new revenue stream.
It’s encouraging to know that my varied and diverse skills – which, for a long time I believed were limiting me – are able to blend together so seamlessly.
If you’re in need of an in-depth report on the topics of sustainable beauty or sustainability in the creative and media sectors, I might just be able to help.
