Hello, my name is Jasmine I am a freelance makeup artist living in the Newcastle area of NSW, Australia. I first became a makeup artist around a year ago, after I completed a diploma in beauty therapy in 2016. Although I loved all aspects of the beauty industry I found I wasn’t able to be creative. Whilst completing my beauty therapy course I completed a makeup module and fell in love with makeup. Over time I learnt how creative makeup can really be, this is where my passion for makeup and becoming a makeup artist started.
I first started experimenting with makeup on myself and trying different brands as I looked for a diploma course for makeup. I found a course that was perfect, I got to learn all different aspects of makeup not just in one area, I’ve learnt a lot about bridal, theatre, production, photography and even SFX. I have found that my knowledge has grown in many of the areas of makeup from hygiene, lighting effects, and creating a look perfect for the individual.
Over the past year I have found myself working on many photo shoots firstly it was to build a portfolio to show you what I am able to do and to network. I found I was becoming creative and enjoying every aspect of it. Looking through the images over the course of the year I have seen a significant improvement of my skills and abilities and I am very proud of how I have grown.
I decided to create my own business to be able to get up and work every day as a makeup artist. Working as a makeup artist, is a dream that is now my reality. Dreams can come true if you put your mind to it. It isn’t always easy to juggle life and all the responsibilities I have in life but I must say I am enjoying every minute of it. The ability to make others feel special or to create something completely out of the ordinary is sure a lot of fun.
I love working on photo shoots and on set but I must say the ability to make another human feel amazing for a special event is sure something I take pride in. Hearing from a bride after her big day that I made her feel amazing and forget all the illnesses she has been suffering in the lead up made me feel humble and proud that I gave this beautiful soul her dream. She didn’t look sick so didn’t feel sick and her guests where able to forget she was sick for the day.
I have managed to work with some amazing people of the course of the year, Photographers whose talents are out of this world and up and coming ones. The beauty within from models is amazing and working with these has been a real treat. The background of a person is not one you can tell by looking at them, you must open your eyes and look beyond the cover. My creative juices run wild when I meet souls of beauty and to bring out this beauty is a pleasure.
I started this blog so my clients can get to know me. The one who is putting on the makeup, the one behind the brushes, so you can watch my journey, to inspire others and to give you advice and tips along the way.
Let’s start this journey and get to know each other along the way and learn some great makeup tips too.
Dreams come true!
