Dalby beau­ti­cian heads to Cannes

Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

NI­COLE Bruce has owned her Dalby beauty sa­lon for 20 years this Au­gust, and what bet­ter way to cel­e­brate her suc­cess than spend­ing two weeks in France ap­ply­ing make-up for the rich and fa­mous.

Af­ter mak­ing some in­flu­en­tial con­tacts in the in­dus­try, Mrs Bruce was in­vited to be part of make-up artist Liz Bomben’s team in France. While there, Mrs Bruce said she worked on board a pres­i­den­tial su­pery­acht in Cannes, ap­ply­ing make-up as part of the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val.

“I also did a fash­ion show at a pri­vate villa, as well as the Monaco Grand Prix Am­ber Lounge,” Mrs Bruce said.

“We saw Ni­cole Kid­man, Ben Stiller, Emma Thomp­son, Pamela An­der­son and Donatella Ver­sace,” she said.

As a mother of four who has been deaf since she was two, Mrs Bruce wanted to show her chil­dren they could reach any goal.

“I want to show my kids what you can achieve in life by work­ing hard,” she said.
