Why I’m passionate about Fashion

As a fashion makeup artist in Byron Bay, you need to love white tones and earthy colours.

Furthermore, Fashion expresses our mood and personality. For some people, it´s a lifestyle. Fashion is fun and can make us feel confident in our different roles in life.

I work with passionate photographers who create a feeling in their pictures. I´m there to transport this feeling through hair and makeup. The photos below were shot by Fashion photographer Dave Blake.

Hair and makeup for fashion shoots are mostly clean, natural and subtle.

Are you looking for a fashion makeup artist in Byron Bay or your surroundings?

I focus on your brand’s philosophy and style. My hair and makeup looks match the vision of my clients. Therefore great communication is key.

Flawless and radiant skin is important and natural beauty will be enhanced. A good makeup artist always tries to focus on the best features. Hair is just as important as makeup.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do I find the perfect makeup artist?

Go on a journey of research. You can google makeup artists in your area. Have a look if the artist does hair as well if needed. Compare experience and have a look at the quality of their pictures. An artist with professional pictures is usually more established and has more years in the industry. Have a look at the reviews. Reach out to some artists, (call or email), and see who answers promptly. This is also a sign of professionalism.

Who is the most sought-after makeup artist?

Unfortunately not always the best makeup artist is necessarily the most sought-after hair and makeup artist. These days it is a lot about social media followers and presentation. There are a lot of self-taught makeup artists out there who can apply makeup on themselves or a beautiful model, but not on the average person or mature woman. I recommend comparing websites and looking at a makeup artist´s experience.

Who is a fashion makeup artist?

A makeup artist who is trained in runaway makeup and hair and cooperates with fashion designers, creative directors and a team of other artists and models.

How much should I pay someone for doing my makeup?

If you seek professional advice and expertise, makeup starts at around $150. The rate also depends on your location. Byron Bay makeup artists charge from $150. Find makeup artists with experience in anatomy and facial bone structure.

Are you offering styled wedding shoots?

I offer bridal makeup, hairstyles, and styled wedding shoots. I love collaborating with other wedding suppliers to create a love story and dream wedding for a beauty/wedding magazine or a venue.
