"Hello Beautiful People,

I’m Maria Akamotakis and I’d love to tell you a little bit about my life! I’ve been a Paramedic with Ambulance Tasmania since 2009. Life was going swimmingly until I injured my back and had to take a few months off. It didn’t take long for the thoughts of “I’m not qualified for anything else” to set in...

I was 13 when my brother got married and I met Tanya. She was the first person to ever do my makeup, and probably one of few people I’d trust to do it today. My love for makeup started on that day!

Off to Melbourne I went to the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy in 2014 where my trainer Adrian and I bonded over full coverage foundation and warm crease colours. I came straight home to launch • The Makeup Ambulance • a play on words - a combination of my two loves.

These days I specialise in making Brides feel their absolute best about their entire makeup experience. It’s not just about making them look good, it’s about a bond - having fun with them and sharing a very important morning!

15 months ago I aligned myself with Arbonne International - a vegan health and wellness company, recently voted 2017’s Number 1 Global Brand “Healthy from the Inside Out”. Just like Sharkra I understand beauty starts from within and gut health paired with skin health is a huge passion of mine.

I am thrilled to share May with you as Sharkra Ambassador and look forward to keeping you posted about some exciting treatments I’ll be blogging about!

Much love to you."
