Inspirational Woman: Sigourney Cantelo

Beauty editor, expert blogger and vlogger, Sigourney Cantelo was a magazine beauty editor for many years, most recently as Beauty & Health Director at Vogue Australia.  Now with her own beauty blog, Beauticate, she’s also a contributor at The Grace Tales as well as mum to 2 year old Max. Here she shares her health and beauty secrets. As well as your amazing blog/vlog Beauticate, you also contribute to other publications like Popsugar and The Grace Tales. How do you juggle all this with a small child? Creativity, chaos and the occasional tantrum (mine, not Max’s)!! No really… I find I have to just fit in work wherever I can. If that means waking up at 5 to sneak an hour or two in before Max wakes up then that’s what I have to do – or late night working on the laptop in bed! I do a lot of business calls in the car on my way to daycare drop offs and pick-ups. What’s your daily beauty routine and how do you manage to keep looking beauty industry fab, while being a busy mum?! My beauty routine has had …

Making eyes the feature of a beauty look is my all-time favourite makeup artistry work!

From the rich warm browns and reds of the earth, to greens of the trees and plants, blues, greens and greys of the sky and water and a multitude of colours of flowers and insects, there is so much natural colour to choose from. Recently the hugely talented husband and wife team, Marcus and Melinda Walters,  shot this amazing bronzed goddess/earth-inspired shoot in a secret Sydney location, using our nature-inspired colour palette. What was the idea behind the look/shoot? We wanted to create a bronzed goddess, almost tribal look and chose a model accordingly who had a natural, earthy look with beautiful olive skin. I wanted her to radiate natural beauty and the Ere Perez collection accentuated that perfectly.

I personally like working with ethical vegan products as it sits well …
