I have a Diploma of Specialist Makeup Services from the Academy of Makeup, Australia’s most wonderful makeup school. This means there’s very little I am not trained to do to your face, makeup-wise. I can make you look like Audrey Hepburn, I can make you look like you’ve been hit by a car, or like a leopard or The Joker. I can make you look like you’re getting married, which could be very useful if you are in fact getting married.
If you’re in the TV-biz, you can call me and I’ll work on your show. It’s true – ask Network Ten’s The 7pm Project, they’ll vouch for me. If you’re in the fashion-biz, I will grudgingly hang around models and make them look even more stunningly gorgeous. I’ve come to terms with the self-esteem plummeting part of the biz, many times over, so what the hell.
Anyone want my take on the airbrush vs regular brushes makeup application? Here it is: I’m enjoying the view from atop the fence. I find there’s a place in the world for both. Airbrush certainly gives a flawless finish that’s also somehow magically light and doesn’t budge, and who wouldn’t love that? However, there’s something organic about using brushes and, look I don’t mean to toot my own horn (yes I do), but I’m pretty darn good at sorting my clients out with a flawless base using brushes as well. Put it this way, I won’t be backwards in coming forwards when it comes to giving my professional opinion, based on what I believe will work for you.
