Hi I’m Charmaine a mobile makeup artist and hairstylist based on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. I first entered the beauty industry 18 years ago as a cosmetic consultant for Avon then later worked as a Beauty Blogger creating content for popular makeup brands such as Rimmel, Napoleon Perdis, Revlon, Covergirl, Nyx and Clarins.
From a young age I knew how beautiful and confident makeup can make you feel but it wasn’t until I trained with Alex Fevola’s Runway Room Academy to become a makeup artist that I realised I could help others feel the same way too. After completing my course I went on to work with the Runway Room events team on jobs for Fox Fm, Triple M, and the Melbourne Bridal Expo.
I started freelancing soon after and have enjoyed being creative on editorial photoshoots with Australian Style Institute alongside many amazing Melbourne models and photographers. As part of the Artist HD makeup team I worked at Melbourne Fashion Week and on clients from ‘Married at First Sight’ and ‘The Real Housewives of Melbourne’.
Enhancing my clients natural beauty has always been a priority for me. I want every client to feel comfortable and walk away with a smile on their face. I’ve been lucky to work at a few local hair salons such as ‘Chicago’ in Sorrento and ‘Blow Kulture’ in Mornington and am known in the area for my natural makeup style and easy to get along with personality.
My current passion lies in the wedding industry in which I love being part of my Bride’s special day. Every client that sits in my chair no matter his or her age, skin colour or style deserves to look and feel beautiful. I just love that I am able to connect with people and help them feel their best for their special events. If you have something special coming up please get in touch, I’d love to meet you!
