Penny Antuar – finding the balance between mummy and makeup

Earlier this week I sat down for a chat with makeup artist Penny Antuar.  I’ve known Penny for almost 10 years now, and watched her career sky-rocket, both locally here in Brisbane, and internationally as she has worked on both New York and Paris fashion weeks, AND has worked on the Australasian launch of Rihanna’s beauty line, Fenty.

Penny generously spent time chatting about how she got started as a makeup artist, what were the big turning points in her career.  We also spoke about finding that balance between being a busy working artist and having a family, which is something I know a lot of artists struggle with… mummy guilt anyone?

With over 100K followers on Instagram, Penny is known for her signature glowy skin looks, and she gave us some great tips on what products she uses to create such beautiful looks.  We chatted about her brand of chic kit accessories Kitology and Penny shared the one tip she would give her younger artist self.

So, without further ado, click to watch our interview:

Thank you Penny for taking the time to chat with us!
