“My experience with Nigel Stanislaus has yielded very positive results. I first met him in Singapore for an event centered around Asia’s Next Top Model. In this experience he produced standalone results. Our next experience took place in New York City involving fashion runway shows.

I can certainly say that Nigel is a credit to the profession of beauty, specifically makeup. I could recommend him very comfortable for any future opportunities.”

“As someone who knows very little about makeup and has had the same routine and ‘look’ for too long to remember, purely through convenience and lack of confidence to try anything new and avoid looking like a fool, I LOVED Rescu.Me Academy’s Be Your Own Makeup Artist modules.
I watched the course over a series of days, almost like a tv series, and as the lessons are bite sized it enabled me to go back to specific topics that I was particularly interested in (and wanted to try myself) and watch them again, pause and trial on myself. It was really really great, and full of so much practical and useful information. I discovered the print outs mid way through the modules which was an added bonus! I now feel that I’m far more knowledgable and have the confidence to experiment with my day to day, and particularly evening makeup.”

“There is so much about Be Your Own Makeup Artist that I absolutely loved! It is jam packed with information and watching Nigel is like being retrained in makeup from the start by the best in the industry. He is easy to follow and gives invaluable practical basic information along with tutorials on more technical makeup procedures like contouring and strobing and lash application. I love Nigel’s recommendations in the Build Your Own Makeup Kit module and how he chooses different makeup for day and night looks and considers different shades to suit various skin tones. The 5 Minute Face lesson is one I will watch over and over to master. The best thing about the course though, is that if you forget any of the information you can always go back to any episode to watch it again!

“I have got a stash of the most incredible beautiful makeup , top tier memberships at the well know beauty hotspots, but to be honest could never get my head around the most efficient way to use all the product, up until now. From the first module, where Bahar introduced me to the course and to Nigel, and the excitement of Nigel sharing his information in a masterclass format I felt engaged and intrigued. It definitely made for some binge worthy viewing, over the course of a couple of weeks. 
The videos are long enough so I could get the information I required, and short enough for me to focus on and view at any time.
Great advice to start from the beginning and work through in order, I’m currently doing over modules and using products at the same time, “steps to concealing” I have Mediterranean skin and Nigel’s Masterclass was very insightful.
Next stop lesson 6, visual tricks I need to know, I can’t wait.

“I’m lucky enough to be privileged to get my hands on a variety of make up. Many I am unsure how to use. What I loved most about this course is its my own library that I can refer to when I have the time to practice. Previously I would YouTube and was bombarded with so much and could never find the same tutorial a few weeks later to master the skill. Plus leaning the techniques from one of the best I felt like it was a lesson just for me. I love it and can’t wait to take my learning for the Christmas functions to attend!

As the Founder and editor of and Bahar Etminan has built a formidable online publishing brand that has become a daily destination for over 30,000+ women* and 28,000 social media followers *Instagram and Youtube.

Bahar knows first-hand how to evolve, adapt and transform to make the most of opportunity. 

  • Born in France to Persian parents, Etminan moved to Australia from Iran, aged 7 and went on to represent Australia in Public Speaking just 4 years after learning English. Additionally, Etminan has lived and studied in the US and France, attending the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris for post Graduate language and cultural studies.  This ability to learn quickly and juggle whatever life sent her way proved to be a fortuitous grounding for her future role in digital publishing.
  • With a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce and MBA under her belt, Etminan’s early career roles included general manager of timepieces for luxury importer BMI (overseeing the likes of global brands including Gucci, Hugo Boss, Fendi and Movado) aged 24, followed by becoming the youngest ever general manager at Bobbi Brown and Origins in Australia.
  • In 2005, Etminan launched Australia’s first distributor owned premium beauty e-tailer,  Since this time, Rescu has evolved into a pure publishing network, putting expertise front and centre by pooling some of Australia’s best talents in lifestyle, fashion, finance, property, beauty, health and wellbeing – providing expert tips, commentary and advice. The launch of RESCU TV on Youtube enriched the content with in depth and personal interviews and how to’s  with luminaries, celebrities and thought leaders.
  • Etminan is incredibly conscious of there not being an ‘i’ in Rescu – this site isn’t an extension of her personality but instead, a response to her years of working in the luxury industry with a strong appreciation of what an independent, intelligent and interested woman is looking for her. 

“I first started RESCU in 2005 to connect women with what really works. Over the past 20 years as a career woman, a wife and ex-wife, a friend and a mother, I’ve met masterminds and mentors who’ve helped spark my highest highs – and lit my way back when I’ve lost businesses, money, relationships and, to be honest, face. I believe fabulous belongs to everyone and reinvention is a beautiful thing – we all just need a little help to make it happen.”
