We first got to know Gold Coast born and bred Jesinta Franklin in 2010 when she was crowned Miss Universe Australia. We're proud to say that one of her very first brand ambassadorships was with us! These days, Jesinta is a popular media presenter, model and entrepreneur, plus long-time friend of Nude by Nature.
We are currently celebrating our 10 year anniversary, and Jesinta has joined the festivities! We're proud of our Australian heritage and we continue to deliver 100% naturally derived and cruelty-free make-up in Australia and globally.

We caught up with Jesinta this week, and you can discover more about our chat in the below:
Nude by Nature (NBN): What are a couple of your top make-up hacks?
Jesinta: For me, any great beauty look starts with good skin. Whilst I have a very strict skincare regime I stick to, I also drink lots of water and ensure I am including lots of things in my diet that assist me in glowing from the inside out. Radiant skin always shines through, (even with make-up), so I always place a big emphasis on prepping my skin before applying any make-up. I also think, less is more, make-up should enhance your natural beauty, not cover it up.
NBN: Do you have a favourite Nude by Nature make-up product and why?
Jesinta: I love the Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover Foundation for everyday wear. It provides just enough coverage over your moisturiser, yet is lightweight and perfect for an off duty look.
NBN: In terms of beauty products, what do you think every Australian should use daily or frequently?
Jesinta: Here in Australia it is so important to apply an SPF daily, especially to your face. With such harsh sun, every little bit of extra sun protection counts.
NBN: Travel is a big part of your life. Have there been any places you’ve visited in the past 12 months that were so much better than you were expecting, and why.
Jesinta: I recently travelled to Iceland for a holiday and it blew my mind. I was expecting it to be incredible but everything was so much better than I could have ever imagined. It was like being on another planet and no videos or pictures could ever do it justice. It's a small country. We drove around it in 10 days, however the scenery and landscape changes so drastically and sometimes all in the space of five minutes. We would be driving, and it would be sunny and clear skies, then five minutes later it was snowing! Iceland was definitely one of the most interesting and memorable places I have ever travelled to.

NBN: Do you have any go-to Instagram accounts, that you always really enjoy following?
Jesinta: I try to use Instagram just for work purposes, and try not to spend too much time on it. But as we all know, it is hard to manage our time on social platforms and it's not always easy to minimise how much we use it.
