How has being a mum inspired your business?

My Son is my reason for being. He gives me purpose and even loves to ‘talk shop’ with me, sharing ideas and giving feedback. As a 7 year old, he's a very attuned consumer and often asks me how Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics is going, giving his elevator pitch to anyone that is listening!

Explain your mum in three words

Resilient, emotive, creative.

What is your favourite memory of your mum?

I have a vivid memory of my Mum teaching me how to plait hair. I was 6 or 7 years old and sitting on the front doorstep of our family home plaiting the tail of my ‘My Little Pony’, over and over again. My Mum is a very giving person and a natural educator!

What is your idea of the perfect Mother’s Day?

Having a sleep-in until 8.30am would be nice! Then having someone else do my makeup, then being taken out for breakfast with freshly brewed coffee and a walk on the beach after!

My top 3 favourite products for Mother’s Day:

These 3 products will create a no-fuss-natural make-up look, perfect for the busy Mum!
