from Power of Makeup Podcast | Published 4/21/2021

This week, Lan meets global make-up artist, brand founder, and industry expert, Ruby Hammer MBE. One of the leading voices in the beauty industry, Ruby discusses how she’s learned to pick her battles, trust her instincts, and use her inner armour to face diversity in what she still deems a man’s world, in order to achieve success and recognition over the last 25 years KEY TAKEAWAYS We take our inspiration and our strength from the generations that guide us. This is why it is so important to provide a positive role model for the generations that follow us. Representation is crucial. The more we see a part of society, the more normalised it becomes, and helps to breed understanding and compassion for those whose voices struggle to be heard. Success only comes through effort and dedication. We can't hope to hit the heights if we don't even try. Be brave and take your place in the world. Becoming a brand takes bravery and self-belief. You need to be convinced of yourself and of the creation you are putting into the world.
