Cindy Rostron, whose skin name is Bangardidjan or Bangin for short, is a model and ranger who's deeply connected to her community and the land, growing up on an outstation in Maningrida, at the tip of Australia’s Northern Territory.

Real Talk, Real Beauty

These ladies are opening up about their experiences growing up in Australia, navigating their careers, and how makeup plays a role in their lives. They discuss the importance of representation in the media, the power of self-love, and the resilience of Indigenous culture. It's not just about looking good — it's about feeling confident, expressing yourself, and connecting with your culture.

Representation Matters

This series isn't just about makeup tips (although you'll definitely get some of those!). It's about giving a platform to voices that aren't always heard and celebrating the diversity of Aboriginal culture. YouTube is all about providing a space for everyone to express themselves and that supports diversity, equity and inclusion, and OUR MAKEUP is a major step in this commitment.

By amplifying the stories of these remarkable creators, we hope to inspire and empower the next generation of First Nations storytellers.

Watch, Learn, and Celebrate

We invite you to watch the OUR MAKEUP video series and discover the beauty, wisdom, and creativity of these incredible women. Join us in celebrating Aboriginal identity and self-expression, and be inspired to share your own stories on YouTube.

This series was filmed on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of these lands and their continuing connections to land, sea, culture and community; and pay our respect to Elders past and present.
