:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Shona Child

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

When we are about to celebrate Australia Day, it is only fitting that a beauty like Shona Child blesses us with her inspiring presence in our latest model profile. Hailing from the Gold Coast in Queensland, Shona has a vivacious and endearing personality and has lit up the modelling scene over the past few years, specialising in glamour, fashion, fitness and promotional modelling. She has been published internationally and has the added quality of developing a savvy business skill, through her Eyelash Styling work. I have noticed in recent times how hungry for success Shona is and the passion she displays for her craft.

Shona spent several years studying make-up and hair styling and became interested in eyelash styling. So much so, that she began her own business and it is thriving due to her determination and passion. You can check out her page here

As for her modelling prowess, one look at her photos shows the beauty she exudes and it is a real treat to feature Shona in her finest form.
