Name: Michelle


What is your favourite makeup look?


I love simple and effortless makeup. A pretty eyeshadow with a nice wing (either defined or smudged depending on the look im going for) and wispy lashes with a beautiful bronzed, contoured and glowy base. This way you can decide if you want to rock a statement lip or not. Either will go so the options are endless!


What made you get into makeup artistry?


Initially i thought i wanted to style hair, so i did a course on hair syling but it was too stressful for me because i was trying too hard to get it right. I knew i wanted to be in the bridal/editorial industry so i tried out makeup by doing Mel's long course. I got my job from there and havent looked back since!! 


Do you prefer bridal, editorial, runway or special effect makeup?


I love bridal makeup - the feeling you get when you make someone feel beautiful on one of the biggest days of their life is amazing. But i definitely love editorial makeup as well because you have the opportunity to showcase makeup differently. Im blessed as my job allows me to do both.


If you had the opportunity to choose any celebrity (dead or alive) and do their makeup, who would it be? And why?


Marilyn Monroe. 100%. She was so classic and beautiful. Her makeup style was understated and effortless which is my fave! I love a good red lip and she rocked it better than anyone! 


 

Name: Jessica


What is your favourite makeup look?

 

Natural Glam! I'm very light-handed in my work, but i like a full coverage without caking on the foundation.

 

What made you get into makeup artistry?

 

I've always loved makeup since i was a kid, sneaking into my sisters room and trying on all her lipsticks! It's a job with endless opportunites and can take me overseas without worrying about a language barrier.

 

Do you prefer bridal, editorial, runway or special effect makeup?

 

I love bridal! Being able to help create something special and unique on one of the most important days of their lives excites me every single time.


If you had the opportunity to choose any celebrity (dead or alive) and do their makeup, who would it be? And why?

 

Kerry Washington. She is absolutely stunning and nails it on the red carpet without doubt every single time. Her features are a makeup artists dream - clear skin, almond shaped eyes & beautiful big lips.

 

 

 

 

Name: Samantha


What is your favourite makeup look?

 

My favourite makeup look would have to be bohemian, sultry style makeup.

 

What made you get into makeup artistry?
 
 
Creativity is my passion and makeup artistry enables me to express myself in the most creative way. I am given an empty canvas with no limitations. I cannot imagine a more creative opportunity than that.
 
 

Do you prefer bridal, editorial, runway or special effect makeup?


Although i love trying different styles of makeup, if i had to pick one it would be editorial. 
 
 
If you had the opportunity to choose any celebrity (dead or alive) and do their makeup, who would it be? And why?
 
 
Celebrity makeup artist Desi Perkins. I love her style and she is easy to relate to. 
 
 
 
 

Name: Chloe


What is your favourite makeup look?

 

My favourite look is definitely bronze and glowing. I love a shimmery bronze shadow with wispie lashes and lots of highlighter for that glowing look and a nude lip. Or something bold and bright at night.

 

What made you get into makeup artistry?
 
 
I always loved makeup and looked forward to doing my makeup on a night out. When i got married i decided to do Melanie's course and was hooked! I'd spend all night watching instagram and youtube tutorials and never ever did i think i'd be working for her! 
 
 

Do you prefer bridal, editorial, runway or special effect makeup?


I love bridal makeup, bring apart of their big day and making everyone feel beautiful. But i also like being creative with special effects too.  
 
 
If you had the opportunity to choose any celebrity (dead or alive) and do their makeup, who would it be? And why?
 
 
I would choose Gigi Hadid! She's gorgeous! I love her sun-kissed makeup style. My favourite look of hers was the 2016 VMA's.
