ODT Online Advertorial
I am a freelance Dunedin-based makeup artist, fully mobile
and more than happy to come to you. I studied makeup artistry
with Ali McD Modelling School and Agency, completing the
advanced makeup artist course in 2009. I am extremely
proficient in wedding and bridal makeup, special occasion
(balls, formals, 21st birthdays), natural/daytime and fashion
looks, including makeup for black-and-white photography.
Makeup is my passion! I love the industry: the challenge, the
variety and the chance it gives me to meet new people. I take
pride in my work and find real enjoyment in helping my
clients achieve the look they want. For anything and
everything makeup, be it wedding/bridal, film, fashion or
photography, contact me for friendly professional service and
Having been associated with Ali McD, I have been fortunate to
take part in the Emerging Designer Awards (March 2009), film
and television work (2009), The Zonta Extraordinary Fashion
Show (2009, 2010), Style Christchurch Fashion Show (2009) and
The ID Fashion Show (2010, 2011). I have also recently worked
on a short film and a full-length feature shot in Dunedin!
Besides the busy wedding and ball/formal seasons, I volunteer
for the Look Good Feel Better workshops for women undergoing
treatment for cancer, offering my services along with other
makeup artists and cosmetologists for this very worthy cause.
Over the years I have also enjoyed working with Talent Scouts
NZ (an Auckland-based talent scout agency), doing progressive
hair and makeup styles on casting portfolio shoots for
aspiring models and actors.
Above all else I simply love my job! I'm passionate about
working with makeup and I get genuine enjoyment in seeing the
delight on a client's face as a result of my work, and real
satisfaction when expectations have been met or exceeded.
If you have a makeup challenge for me then I would love to
hear from you!
