OUR FOUNDER

Country Girl turned Make Up Artist / Entrepreneur after losing her Mum at 16 years of age who named Amplified Beauty Australia prior to passing.

See the journey below!

Moving from home town Broken Hill NSW to Melbourne Victoria to follow her dreams after the devastating loss of her Mum, Shahna relocated to Adelaide SA to build make up business SSMITH ARTISTRY. This was the beginning of many personal obstacles as well as professional milestones.

Relationship breakdowns, couch surfing, rebuilding financial dependence whilst running SSMITH ARTISTRY, this did NOT stop the planning of our beloved Amplified Beauty.
