Be My Guest...

My name is Sarah and I am a freelance makeup artist servicing all areas of South East Queensland. I am available for weddings, formals, events, halloween and any occasion where you feel like treating yourself to a little pampering.

I pride myself on being professional and approachable. I am very friendly and aim to make your experience fun and memorable.

I love making people feel special and am truly passionate about what I do.

I have been OBSESSED with makeup and hairstyling for as long as I can remember although I never thought to make it my career. While beauty has always been a hobby, I thought my career would be as a psychologist. So I went to university and studied a Bachelor of Psychology and have been working for many years with an organisation supporting people living with dementia. I really liked my job and it was very rewarding however I knew it was not my passion. For months I struggled to find my passion not realising it had been there the whole time.

I had spent the last 7 years unknowly building my makeup kit, finding my style, educating myself on all things hair and makeup not knowing that it would all lead to preparing me for my future career in makeup.

It wasn't until my wedding day that I realised I could make a career out of my passion. When I returned from my honeymoon, I booked into a makeup course and soon started my own freelance makeup business. I have had consistent bookings ever since and I have never been happier. I love the look on my client's faces when they see themselves for the first time after sitting in my chair. I love making people feel special and beautiful. And I love that I have finally realised my passion.
