Occupation: Freelance Makeup Artist

About Me: After years of dedicating my life to science, and working towards graduating as a medical doctor, I have finally given in to the artist within me. I initially trained in make up when I first began medical school, under MAC WA Manager Carol Mackie. It was my one artistic outlet and I fell in love. Most recently I trained privately under Margaret Kimura in Hollywood, graduating from a Masters of Makeup Artistry. This was a dream come true. Margaret taught me her signature technical artistic skills, successful business strategies and the professional mindset needed for a lasting career as a master makeup artist.

Hire me because
I have a young fresh energy. I thrive on challenges. I dream big. I never see an assignment unfinished. I give my heart and soul to my work. I am professional, sharp, dedicated. I am in love with everything makeup and style.
You should know
I was trained in Hollywood in Film and Television, Fashion and Runway, Retail, Bridal and Special Events, under acclaimed makeup artist Margaret Kimura. In Australia I studied under Carol Mackie from Artists at Play for MAC Cosmetics. I have over 10 years experience in retail, managerial roles, treasury, education, teamwork and leadership. I have experience in setting up my own freelance makeup artist business, responsible for all elements including marketing, accounting, financing, media, styling and employment. I have made contributions to Emvee Magazine (Indonesia’s leading women’s fashion magazine) for their beauty and fashion “Shopaholics” editorials. I am a Perth girl, and have recently relocated to Sydney. Should the job require I would move interstate or overseas in a heart beat.
My promise to you
I will work harder and give more to this job than you ever ask of me. I will stay up to date with the latest trends and designs, drawing inspiration from film, theatre, art and music.
