I'm a multi-award winning, experienced professional Makeup Artist, Ageless Beauty and Over 40's makeup expert, trusted Beauty Judge, Speaker, 2020 Makeup VLogger of the Year, 2020 Australian Makeup Artist of the Year Finalist, 2018/2019 Queensland Makeup Artist of the Year and Finalist Makeup Educator of the Year 2019/2020, 2019 Gold Coast Woman of the Year Finalist. I'm on a mission to help women over 40 feel damn fabulous about themselves using a little genuine insider beauty know-how and a big pile of beauty tips and makeup tricks.


My beauty blog Beauty Insider was created for busy superwomen like you, who just aren't ready to embrace mid-life. Heck no. I'm a 51-year-old loving mother of two little scoundrels Will and Charlie. Life is wild, woolly and super full. Yes, occasionally I forget to pack a school lunch, or send the boys out the door without brushing their teeth, in the wrong uniform. I'm not perfect, I'm just trying to keep it all together, a lot like you.

I ditched the magic pants and only ever wear sensible (but sparkly) shoes - just love a sequin, floaty frock, neon suit and a comfortable sneaker. I walk the Burleigh Headland most days, practice yoga, meditate, wear ear plugs and an eye mask to bed (it's not "hot" ha ha) and enjoy a glass of rose in an attempt to keep things real and maintain some form of sanity amongst the chaos. I test, trial, play with a LOT of makeup, skincare and beauty products. Surrounded by makeup and beauty products is totally my happy place. 

In 2003 I worked as a first makeup assistant on a Jet music video in Sydney and have never looked back. Over the last 21 years, I've collaborated with some of Sydney's best creatives and high profile celebrities like Noni Hazlehurst, Sophie Monk, Delta Goodrem, Collette Dinnigan, Jackie O, Miranda Kerr, Julia Gillard and now it's your turn. Working with you, watching you light up is what makes my heart sing.

My mission is to help you to refresh your look, rekindle your love for makeup, find yourself again, perhaps inspire a new interest in makeup... with simple, practical yet effective tips, tricks, and insider secrets to nailing your look fast.


You'll always get professional, genuine, and honest advice with some helpful step-by-step makeup "how-to" videos, age-relevant makeup advice, insights, and guidance, plus you'll find a carefully collated collection of must-have makeup products that flatter mature skin in my online shop.


You can trust that at Amanda Ramsay Makeup everything is tried and tested by me. You're shopping with a Makeup Artist. I am a working professional makeup artists - and where it's not my area of expertise, I consult leading aestheticians and skin specialists. I will never be talk about or advocate for something I don't believe in. I don't use photoshop or FaceTune or any of those fancy editing apps. What you see is what you get. I can not help but be any other way!
