Everyone has the right to be beautiful.

Ashleigh R.Tippett - 20 Years old from New Zealand. Previously a Revlon & L'Oreal Counter Manager, now a freelance Makeup Artist with a Beauty Channel on Youtube under the alias 'PunkPetal3'.

I grew up with a fascination about beauty - I always knew I wanted to be a part of the entertainment/beauty industry - but did not know what I wanted to do. I proceeded to believe acting was what I wanted to pursue, until I started helping out with makeup for a few small school photo shoots and drama performances etc. Then one day I discovered makeup tutorials on YouTube. This changed my life entirely - Makeup gave me confidence. I looked good, felt even better and somewhere along the line, found that this was my passion!
I enjoyed applying makeup to my friends, family and myself, when I suddenly got a job working at a Makeup counter at my local Pharmacy. Over the course of a year, I worked my way to becoming the manager of the Revlon and L'Oreal counter. This only boosted my confidence, and I was now able to work on complete strangers, and have an endless supply of makeup to use!
During this time - I created my YouTube Channel 'PunkPetal3', as a hobby. I had always seen Beauty Gurus online, and loved the idea of it - so I created it to teach my friends and family to do their makeup, and be apart of the online beauty community.
Since then, I have gone on to study for my Makeup Artistry Certification with QC Makeup Academy, so that I can further my skills, and continue to broaden my horizons. I absolutely love what I do, and look forward to what the future brings!
