Rose Letho - World Renowned Make-up Artist and Beautiful Human

We talk to Rose Letho, world renowned make-up artist about her career, life and how she maintains balance in her busy life.

What was your path that led you to your current career?
Since I was a toddler I have always loved makeup especially because my favourite Aunty was a beautician. I think ending up in the beauty industry definitely stemmed from low self esteem and body shame as a child though. But I’m grateful to have been able to learn and grow into loving myself as I am and enhancing natural features with the tangibility and playfulness that makeup has to offer.

What do you love most about your work?
The tangibility of it all and less is more

Where do you draw inspiration from?

Could you describe your favourite "happy place" or a sanctuary that brings you peace and rejuvenation?

What rituals or self-care practices do you embrace (if any)?
Beauty comes from the inside (your gut). Take care of your body to help improve your skin and well being

How do you maintain balance in your life?
I stick to my routine and only make exceptions if I want to not because someone else wants me to. I don’t drink alcohol very often and exercise most days to show up for myself which keeps me motivated and feeling a sense of balance
