001: Phoenix Renata
Updated: Jul 30
It's impossible to deny the indelible mark that Phoenix Renata has made on the New Zealand Makeup industry. At just 21 years of age, entrepreneur Phoenix created her own cosmetics range with a vision to fill a gap in the market for approachable makeup services and advice.
The next decade saw her open 12 boutique Phoenix Cosmetics stores across New Zealand and Australia, and bring the first EVER makeup focused show to New Zealand Fashion Week in 2010. In a market that was dominated by the international industry giants, Phoenix brought creative makeup artistry jobs and runway experience to the next generation of kiwi makeup artists.
