THE LIP LAB INTERVIEW – Rebecca Judd, Co-Founder Beauty EDU

Posted on 15 August 2016


How did ‘Beauty EDU’ come about? Beauty EDU was born from a desire to change the face of beauty education, forever. We are creating the next wave of beauty specialists, through inspirational, creative learning environments and strong connection to industry, we engage students in a learning experience like no other.

What was the main difference you wanted to bring to beauty education from what was already being done? We are closing the loop between education and industry, providing our students with industry-led learning and the development of hands-on practical skills, equipping them with the necessary tools, experience and knowledge to step directly into the workplace.

We want to create the next generation of beauty students who are relevant, progressive and can step out into any job in the industry, be the best and nail it!


What courses does Beauty EDU offer? We have a range of study modes to suit our student’s lifestyle for both our Diploma of Beauty Therapy (SHB50115) and Specialist Makeup (Diploma of Screen and Media CUA51015).

This includes full-time which is 4 days on campus for Beauty Therapy and 2 days on campus for the Makeup course over 12 months . Part-time study is currently offered for Beauty Therapy, with Part-time only 2 days per week over 18months, so our students can still work.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given or have discovered? I know it’s been heard a gazillion times before but ALWAYS wear sunscreen. If your skin is supple it will always look amazing no matter what makeup you choose to wear, if any.

What are your can’t live-without beauty products?
Elis Faas concealer in S204, The Face by The Skincare Company Baked Bronzer in Fiji, The Face by The Skincare Company Baked Blush in Honeybell, Becca Cosmetica cream illuminator in OPAL, Model Rock individual lashes, The Face by The Skincare Company Gel Eyeliner in Sienna (coffee colour)- it is waterproof and so smudge yet stays put. I am obsessed! Oh did I mention Kester Black nail polishes? Any shade will do but I favour the pinky nudes.


What’s your best time-saving beauty tip? Conceal, bronzer, mascara- DONE!

Any beauty disasters? Yes, I slipped once when curling my lashes and ripped them all out of from the roots in my curler- eek! I looked like a plucked chicken and it took a good 6 weeks for them to return.

Fave beauty icons? Selena Gomez has been rocking some incredible makeup of late. I also look to my fave makeup artists’ instagram pages for inspo- Jade K, Chantelle Baker, Max Made and Ania Milczarczyk

Fave beauty look? Chocolate Smokey eye with a light contour/highlight, loads of lashes and peachy cheeks and lips- heaven!

How did The Lip Lab collaboration with Beauty EDU come about?
We had seen the Lip Lab in Sydney and loved the concept, so we invited them to come down and offer the experience at our Open Day. We loved it so much that we decided to then collaborate with them at the new Beauty Garden at Eastland with a Pop Up!

What do you love about The Lip Lab? At Beauty EDU we like to work with innovative brands and businesses, and are thrilled to partner with The Lip Lab, where we will be the first in Victoria to offer this service. People love creating custom products these days, and we think making your own lipstick will be an absolute hit,” added Bec.

Beauty EDU will continue to close the loop between education and industry and offer employment opportunities for its students to work at the Pop Up.

How many Lip Lab lipsticks have you created? I have created one, which was peachy, pinky, nudey signature shade. I added instant plumper and selected a matte base. My daughter Billie created a hot pink, chocolate flavoured (of course) lip gloss which she loved. Watching her little face light up as the product was created and came to life was pretty adorable. I am looking forward to making more for Spring!
