I work as a freelance makeup artist in Melbourne, and own my own business "Tristen Alexandra Makeup Artist". I decided to build my career as a makeup artist after falling in love with so many amazing photo shoots in fashion magazines. I would buy countless magazines every month, barely interested in what was written on the pages, but spending hours looking over the editorial shoots and advertisem...ents thinking about how much I wanted to be involved in creating such stunning images.
I have always had a love for art, and after spending years drawing and painting, decided to change canvases (so to speak) and get into makeup, as it was something I was already passionate about. I studied a Diploma of Makeup, being trained in multiple areas including fashion, photographic, film, bridal and occasion makeup as well as special effects and airbrushing.
My biggest passion as a makeup artist is in beauty, fashion and editorial work as I love creating different makeup looks, from natural beauty to creative and dramatic. I continue to be involved in photo shoots, whether that is as the makeup artist, or in assisting some of the best makeup artists in Melbourne to continually learn, develop and try out new things.
I also love being involved in weddings and I specialise in bridal makeup. I believe it’s so important to look and feel like yourself on your wedding day, so I aim to work with you to create a look that enhances your natural beauty and makes you look and feel amazing on your wedding day.
I have joined MM to work and collaborate with talented photographers, models and other MUA/hair stylists. Feel free to contact me to discuss any opportunities you may have:
