How I Became A Makeup Artist

Clients often ask me where I carried out my makeup training. 

I have always been interested in how makeup can transform a face and watched makeup tutorials online. My favourites being Lisa Eldridge, Pixiwoo and Tanya Burr.  

My initial training was with the 'Alicia Sandeman Academy'.  This was an excellent course to grasp the fundamentals of makeup.  Subjects covered were basic makeup techniques, bridal makeup and Asian makeup.

Subsequently I attended the 'Kristina Gasperas Makeup Academy' in Richmond where I trained in 'red carpet looks' and specifically, bridal makeup. Working one-to-one with Kristina was fantastic and I developed an understanding in advanced techniques of makeup application.   I was also trained to take high quality photographs using correct lighting techniques.  This has been a beneficial service for my clients as I am able to provide them with beautiful photographs of their makeup experience, whether it's of their wedding day or a special occasion.  

I'd highly recommend this course to any makeup artist!
