Secrets from a Beauty Insider was created for busy superwomen, over the age of 40 who just aren’t ready to embrace mid-life.

Amanda Ramsay, an experienced Professional Makeup Artist, is on a mission to help women over 40 feel damn fabulous about themselves using a little genuine insider beauty know-how.

Her professional career started while working for advertising agencies in Sydney and London. It was whilst on a shoot in London that she had her lightbulb moment. “The makeup artist definitely had the best job.” So in 2003, after qualifying as a makeup artist in London, she landed back in Sydney to work as a first assistant on a Jet music video and life has never been the same.

Now, in her mid-40’s (a time poor, busy working mother with 2 gorgeous rambunctious boys Amanda has found her calling.

Secrets from a  Beauty Insider is all about helping women over 40 refresh their look and remain visible and rock on through the inevitable process of ageing.
