MEGAN POTTER

 

CREATIVE DIRECTOR • MAKEUP CURATOR

Megan is a triple threat beauty therapist, makeup artist and personal stylist, and began the business bearing her name in 2013 as a personal stylist. Megan established the business to help women to look and feel good, whatever their budget. Restoring confidence and self-love in her clients was and still is Megan’s absolute passion! Megan styled clients in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide, and appeared on Gold Coast radio talking all things fashion, styling how-to, outfit creating and trend forecasting.

Due to many requests from her clients and encouragement from her cousin Mandy Hawtin, Megan decided to develop her own brand of high quality mineral makeup. As the Creative Director, Megan has grown this small styling business into a successful organic cosmetics company.

More recently Megan has made appearances on Ticker News and was an expert guest speaker for the 2021 Mamamia You-Beauty podcast on mineral cosmetics.

Today, Megan is enjoying colour matching mineral foundation shades to her customers and guarantees that she will match your perfect shade. Megan also curates the MEGAN POTTER organic makeup collection.

In 2020 after returning to her home state after eight years in sunny Queensland Megan won the SA Woman of the Year Award in the Rise Up category for a year of outstanding growth.

AMANDA HAWTIN

MANAGING DIRECTOR • COSMETIC DEVELOPER 

Mandy began her professional life working for the University of Adelaide as a Student Advisor, and later as an Executive Officer. She completed her Masters in Business Administration over 10 years part time, and had three sons during this time.

 Once returning to the workforce Mandy found it difficult to balance the inflexibilty of business hours and parenting, so she began to explore part time and flexible working opportunities.

Mandy decided to be a stay at home mum and student for 9 years while her three boys were pre-school aged. During this time she moved from Adelaide to Brisbane, then to Gladstone in Central Queensland, back to Brisbane in 2018.

One morning in April 2018 Mandy had the inspiration to join forces with her cousin Megan Potter, and expand Megan’s personal styling business by offering high quality mineral makeup.

In late 2020 Mandy and her family returned to South Australia after 12 years in Queensland, and is loving being close to family, including cousin Megan Potter.

As a qualified beauty therapist Megan knew about ingredient options and qualities, and the importance of colour. Mandy wanted Vegan products due to her seafood allergy. Mascaras and lipsticks sometimes contain fish scales (Guanine) and shark liver (Squalene), and she had experienced allergic reactions to these ingredients in the past. 

As a teenager Mandy started to make her own skin care to avoid these allergens, and shortly after joining forces with her cousin Mandy started to make and sell facial oils to the very first MEGAN POTTER customers. The products were so popular it wasn't long before the oil products were made by a manufacturer under licence.

This passion to offer pure products has grown into a drive to create skin care and hair care that is not only safe for the most sensitive skins, but also ecologically sustainable.  As the Company has grown Mandy has started to bring the production of skin care back in-house... but this time on a larger scale than what she made in her kitchen.

Both women are extremely proud of MEGAN POTTER, and believe it to be the purest skin care, hair care and makeup available. They are so confident in their products that Megan and Mandy offer a 100% love it or your money back guarantee.
