After working in retail in the United Kingdom he decided to start posting his looks online before turning to TikTok.

‘I enjoyed being in makeup but it didn’t feel like it was end game.’ 

Since moving home to Australia he turned to TikTok as a way to make social media his full time income and said it is ‘the ultimate job’.

‘It makes it feel like what I’m doing is making a difference. I feel like I’ve found a bit of a purpose,’ Brandon said.

‘You’ve never met someone before, and then you realise that you can have an impact on people’s lives without even knowing it.’ 

Perth-based rapper Jaycee had been working on his music his entire life trying to break out into the music world, but it wasn’t until he started posting to TikTok that he finally got the attention he wanted.

‘I was busking on the streets and then TikTok came along and changed the game,’ the 22-year-old told Daily Mail Australia.

Jaycee had built himself a studio and started producing his own music and even pushed out 26 singles and music videos but still only had a few listeners.

Then he started taking his remixes to TikTok and woke up one day with 100,000 followers – some of which he included in a music video.

He now has a deal with a record label and is planning to release even more music with the help of his followers. 

‘I knew the whole time that TIkTok was like the future,’ Jaycee said.

‘My life is my work – it’s not a job for me, TikTok is my job, my music is my job.’

‘I enjoy making content, it’s not hard for me to do.’  

These young Aussies will now fill TV screens across the country in what is TikTok’s largest ever ad campaign.
