Holly began her makeup journey by studying the Diploma of Beauty Therapy part-time at The French Beauty Academy (formally known as Gold Coast Training Academy) whilst also managing high school and a casual job in a local beauty salon. Once completing year 10, she decided to leave high school to concentrate on her studies. She Graduated from GCTA with not only her Diploma but also received the Makeup Artist of the Year for 2013 Award! This is when she realised her passion for cosmetics and making people feel and look beautiful and decided to further her study.
In 2014 she completed the Diploma of Specialised Make Up Services at the Australian Institute of Creative Design. During her studies, Holly was chosen by RAWArtists to showcase her work and was then announced RAW Gold Coast Makeup Artist of 2015. During 2016 Holly became an Assitant Trainer at The Australian Institute of Creative Design. She loved being able to share her tips and tricks with aspiring, student makeup artists! She was then given the oppurtunity to work for The Lip Lab as a Colour Consultant, custom blending lipstick and gloss at The Lip Lab Pacific Fair! During 2017 Holly took the time to grow and focus solely on her freelance business and successfully built up a large clientele. She also works closely with The Luxe Beauty Co in Casuarina, NSW providing traditional and airbrush makeup services to bridal parties from Brisbane to Byron Bay!
Starting her makeup career at a young age, Holly is now 25 years old and has successfully established her career. She has worked with many brands and companies all over Australia and has built relationships with many well known and respected creatives. Brides put their trust in Holly to make them not only look their best for their special day but also feel it! With not just an eye for detail and perfection, many have commented on the professionalism and expertise Holly shows throughout and would recommend to anyone searching for a Makeup Artist.
