Professional makeup artistry

I am a professional makeup artist from Melbourne. I have always had a fascination and love of makeup which I inherited from my grandmother who encouraged me to experiment and play with all kinds of makeup and beauty products from a young age.

Having worked in the corporate arena for many years, I finally took the plunge and jumped into the world of professional makeup artistry in 2016. I have a very creative side and it is amazing to express it in a way that brings smiles to the faces of others.

I really enjoy enhancing people’s natural beauty along with making them look glamorous for their special occasions. I love seeing their reaction when they look in the mirror at the finished product....that is such a special moment!

Having worked in the corporate world for many years, I have been used to wearing a full face of makeup every day as professional grooming is generally expected in large, corporate offices. People had often complimented me on my makeup and being asked for beauty and makeup advice by ladies I have worked with over the years, made me realise that I was missing out on working in an area that I had longed to since I was a child.

In 2016 I made the decision to study Master Makeup Artistry with QC Makeup Academy and haven't looked back! Within a couple of months of commencing my study and looking for models, I soon had people offering to pay for my services. I then decided there was no time like the present to launch my business and have been operating on a freelance basis since late 2016.

The majority of my work to date has been makeup for evening events, functions and weddings. I am also interested in editorial and photographic work and look forward to doing work in this area in the near future.


I offer professional makeup artistry such as day looks, special occasion, evening and bridal. I can also offer one-on-one makeup lessons or makeup workshops for small groups as requested.

I am a mobile makeup artist so provide makeup artistry in the comfort of my clients homes or other venues such as hotels, reception centres, yachts, studios, etc. I travel all over metropolitan Melbourne but am based in Sunbury, Victoria.

For brides, I normally suggest booking a consultation and trial at least 1-2 months prior to your big day to ensure that we get your dream look just right!
