In this weeks Spring Interview Series we speak to Jacqueline from Blushae about her awesome business, goals and influences.
Tell us a little about Blushae?
Blushae is a beauty studio specialising in custom blend tanning and makeup artistry. Our purpose build studio was designed just for tanning with the latest tanning technology and clean air extraction. It’s private location with parking at the door ensures our clients feel comfortable attending their tanning appointments. At Blushae we also offer makeup artistry and our ‘Signature Blushae’ looks, which range from natural to full glam and has all occasions and events covered.
What made you launch your business?
I launched my business 10 years ago as I always had a love for beauty and creativity and wanted a flexible career that I had full control of so that I could also raise my young family. I love making my clients feel great!
What would you recommend for someone starting out?
To anyone just starting out I would recommend they write down their plans and goals and refer to it often. Allow room for your business to evolve. Also get the best training you can and never stop learning. The beauty industry is always changing and it’s important to keep up.
What are you current goals for your business?
Currently at Blushae we have some exciting plans in the works which are currently under wraps however our main goal is to expand our business to a new location with more tanning rooms and a makeup team to take care of more clients at once. We also offer tanning training and a plan to have bigger and better facilities to accommodate more students.
Where would you like to be in 12 months time?
In 12 months time I would love to be in my new location, pampering lovely ladies at bridal parties and training up the next generation of tanners.
What do you love about your job?
I really love my loyal customers as they’re the ones that make me feel like I am not working! They make each appointment fun and we always have a laugh. I then love to see the final results of a bronzed glowing tan for their wedding or a glam makeup look that makes them feel beautiful. I also love where my business has taken me. I have tanned at Mercedes Benz Fashion week, tanned Bachelorettes from the hit TV show, beauty editors and even the cast of Geordie Shore on their Australia Tour.
What is your best business tip?
https://www.beautifinda.com.au/listing/blushae-3/Network as much as possible. Attending events and meeting new people is the best way to build genuine relationships and grow your business quickly and at minimal cost.
What is your current go-to make up product?
Currently I am in love with the Charlotte Tilbury Makeup range and love the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette.
What are your go to tanning products – who do you love and why?
I am the biggest fan of Fake Bake tanning products and have used their products for 8 years. It’s really tough to choose but I love the Fake Bake Flawless tan as it’s super easy to apply, non streaky and dries so quickly. The colour is amazing.
Who are your biggest beauty influencers?
I really love Wayne Goss who is a British Makeup Artist. His honest reviews and tutorials influence many of my purchases. I also love Tamanna Roashan known as Dress Your Face for her stunning glam makeup looks.
If you weren’t in the beauty industry, what would you be doing?
If I was not in the beauty industry I would still be very interested in having my own business and would love to have a retail fashion store.
