{WHERE} @hannahmutze

What are you currently listening to/ reading / watching at the moment? 

Listening to Brene Brown’s podcast Unlocking Us, along with a constant stream of disco and 90’s hip-hop playlists blasting from the Sonos. Reading Where the Crawdad’s Sing – a gf passed it on after she finished it, and Bed Threads series The Makers too! I love seeing inside creative people’s homes! Watching the Newsroom, my bf and I just started watching and I was hooked after the first episode! Along with daily yoga and pilates live streams from Bad Yogi Retreats and Hustl.


What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Moving to Sydney 6 years ago. They’ve been such formative years, both personally
and professionally.

What is your most cherished eyebrow product?

24Hr Brow Setter. It’s the most used product in my makeup bag! It’s a clear setting gel that keeps my feathery style in place for hours and is perfect on its own for no/low makeup days or layered on top of other products as the finishing step.

What is the most amazing place that your job has taken you?

I loved Hong Kong it’s such a delicious treat for all the senses! Also, a helicopter!
Benefit hosted an event deep in the Blue Mountains and helicoptered our guests in.
Flying over the valleys and mountains was truly beautiful.

What are you doing when you’re not working?

Most likely any one or a combination of: pilates, swimming in the ocean, learning to surf, cooking/preserving, eating, pottering in the garden and taking photos of any new leaves/buds, or trawling local op shops for fun vintage finds!

How has your eyebrow style changed over the past 10 years, if at all?

Oh goodness, they’ve come a long way in that time. I went through a phase about 10 years ago of liking them really defined, shapely and tinting them super dark! They needed so much attention I don’t know how I kept up with them. I’m now all about full, effortless and low maintenance fluffy brows. I just tint and tidy them every 4-6 weeks.

What is your signature brow style?

Full, fluffy and textured! It’s a really youthful style that suits almost everyone.

What is your favourite thing about working at Benefit?

There’s so many things I love about this brand! But the spirit and DNA is truly special - you can feel it in everything we do and in the people, too.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Still doing brows, that will never get old! And living close to the ocean surrounded by family, friends and a big, thriving veggie garden. My gfs and I have spent years dreaming up business ideas– fingers crossed in 10 years’ time we’ve brought one to life!
