NEWCOMER Vanessa Tocker will add some extra glamour to Gladstone.

The certified Napoleon Perdis make-up consultant started at Terry White Chemist in Stockland Gladstone two weeks ago after moving to the area from the Central Coast in New South Wales with husband Brodie.

She said the pair, who wed in Thailand during March, decided to move to the area after Mr Tocker found work here.

The region has made a positive first impression on her.

"I just think it's pretty. It's got a lot of nice creeks," she said.

Mrs Tocker said she enjoyed taking her two toy moodles Bella and Ruby for walks to explore the area near her New Auckland home.

"I can walk to work, which is great," she said.

Taking up her position at Terry White Chemist was an obvious career move for the beauty therapist of 11 years.

Mrs Tocker owned her own make-up business for four years, during which time she used Napoleon Perdis products.

"Everything in my kit was Napoleon," she said. "It just has staying power and a big range of foundations.

"It's got a good name behind it."

On her passion for her job, she said: "I like making people feel good about themselves and happy".

"I love working with people. I've always been a perfectionist."

Mrs Tocker said she enjoyed helping people step outside of their comfort zone when it came to their make-up.

She said teaching people who had used the same eye shadow or lip colour for decades what other products suited them was rewarding.
