A B O U T

A visually stimulated person since forever, my creativity has paved a path of love and understanding of great aesthetics, which has seen me dabble in makeup and design in all facets. 

My passion for makeup ignited the day I was gifted Rae Morris’ first makeup book at 14 years old, and things escalated quickly from there. I obtained my Certificate in Make Up Artistry with Elly Lukas, and so my first artistry gig began at M.A.C Cosmetics in 2009 at 16 years old, one of their youngest employees globally.

Whilst i studied Marketing at RMIT University, I further developed my soft and blended aesthetic as a Skin and Colour Specialist in Melbourne at Mecca Cosmetica, home to some of the most renowned cosmetic brands and products internationally. Working alongside leading artists, top end training, and exposure to a wide variety of products has resulted in a makeup kit second-to-none, with a skillset reflective of extensive experience. 

No two days are the same. As a freelance makeup artist, my career spans from fashion, editorial, advertising and bridal. Creating a connection with whoever is in my chair, and the role I play in combining my client’s natural beauty with artistic creativity, is the most rewarding part of the gig.

Throughout my 8 years in the industry, I've worked to a philosophy that translates through my results - make up exists to enhance natural structure and compliment features, not to mask it. Skin that looks like skin, with a healthy, dewy glow, facial symmetry and blended contours & colour is at the premise of my work.

This means, you'll leave looking like you - but on a really good day!

Bachelor of Media & Communications in Advertising
Major: Contextual communication of Politics, Economies & Businesses

2014

RMIT's Bachelor degree in Advertising had three distinct focuses: Art Direction, Copywriting and Strategy Planning/Account Management. With a strong focus on critical and conceptual thinking, I learnt how to utilise these skills to solve marketing problems, generate attention for brands and products and build an emotional bond between a brand and consumers.

I've also received professional recognition and accreditation by the worldwide industry body, New York-based International Advertising Association (IAA), and have received my IAA's Diploma of Advertising in addition to my degree from RMIT.
