Editorial Makeup and Hair styling

Editorial makeup often seen in fashion magazines or on runways can vary from almost invisible to bold makeup. It tells the story of the designer, photographer or brand.

As a makeup artist, flawless skin and harmony between hair and makeup are essential.

I am highly trained in editorial makeup and hairstyling and can create any hair look an art director needs. My photos have minimal retouching to show natural beauty. Photos below by Dave Blake

What is Beauty?

Of course, beauty can be many things for a person, but did you know beauty can be defined?

Scientifically proven symmetry defines beauty. It´s called the `Golden Ratio´. The human eye unconsciously attracts this ratio in a face or object.

Byron Bay Makeup Signature Style

Byron Bay´s signature makeup look is glowy and sunkissed. As Byron stands for its relaxed lifestyle, most women wear natural makeup unless it´s festival time.

Great skincare is key for a radiant look. Mixing a highlighter in your foundation can give your skin a luminous glow. Perfect for your bridal moment.

Byron Bay is also a wedding destination and many brides come with their bridal parties each season to have the dream wedding. Everyone tries to catch a beautiful sunset photo in a white dress.

Please find all the makeup secrets for Byron´s signature makeup look in my blog post.

Gold Coast Makeup Style

The Gold Coast fashion and makeup look couldn´t be more different to Byron Bay´s relaxed and natural style.

The Gold Coast look is bold, with long lashes and very likely dark smokey eyes. Foundation likes to be seen and is worn with confidence.

Glamour and amazing lashes can be an inspiration to create a bolder editorial or wedding look.

Expert Makeup Artists and your Wedding day

I work with a professional team of makeup artists and qualified hairdresser in case you have a larger booking. If you need a professional setting for a photo shoot or your bridal party, I can host your group in a partner salon in the heart of Byron Bay.

My products are professional and cruelty-free. I also use individual, expertly applied Modelrock lashes.

It is important to find your match. It´s highly recommended to call your expert makeup artist before booking. You can ask all your questions and get an idea of the person you are talking to.

I aim to make clients feel confident and the best version of themselves. A natural makeup look, with flawless skin, is mostly the go for a professional beauty look.

Exact Look

An editorial beauty look requires special training and experience of an artist. Hair and makeup must be precise for a cover or a commercial shoot. Hair needs to be neat even if the look is meant to be messy. It takes great experience to achieve a perfectly undone hairstyle.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much should I pay someone for doing my makeup?

It depends on the location you are booking your artist. A beauty makeup artist in Byron Bay charges around $150-$200 for a makeup application. Hair and makeup is around $300-$400.

How much should you spend on a makeup artist?

In Byron Bay, prices start at around $300 for a professional hair and makeup service. If you are a bride and you want to enhance your beauty for your wedding celebration, I wouldn´t save money on your appearance.

A makeup artist isn’t very expensive considering the total costs of a wedding. Remember you´ll always look back to the photos of your big day.

How do I find the perfect makeup artist?

Find makeup artists in Byron Bay on Google, and look out on the artist´s website for experience and style. It should match your ideas. It is important to check if the makeup artist does both hair and makeup as some makeup artists do just makeup. I highly recommend calling and asking questions.

Great communication is key. You can also find out if your chosen artist uses your favourite brands or works with cruelty-free products for example.

Your hair stylist and makeup artist should understand your needs. You can ask other wedding suppliers about a beauty makeup artist as a bride. Last but not least read Google reviews.

Who is a celebrity makeup artist?

As the name says, a celebrity makeup artist is a makeup artist who has been working with celebrities in Film, TV, Music or Fashion.

What is the most attractive amount of makeup?

That is very subjective. It can be a matter of trend, location and personal preference. A professional makeup artist wants to achieve a great look without seeing too much of the actual makeup.

I like it when people say ´You look beautiful´ instead of `Your makeup looks great´.

Most brides for example want to look like themselves on their special day.

For editorial beauty makeup, very little makeup will be used. The majority classifies flawless skin as attractive.

How do I get a professional makeup look?

Hire a professional freelance makeup artist or choose a salon with experienced makeup artists. Look at the artist´s experience and take on some recommendations.

Prepare yourself before the consultation with some inspirational pictures.
