About Me


Recently qualified make up artist here, looking to make what you create beautiful, and to beef up my portfolio. Mainly experienced in film/television, so am wanting to do more photography work! Drop me an email at [email protected] and we'll get things started.

I'm quite lovely, honest. Not afraid of mucking in, and I'm definitely not a MUA who sits around, refusing to help outside of their "assigned role". Huge pet peeve of mine!

I'm based in Auckland, NZ, and I've just come back from living in London for the last two years, after training at Greasepaint Make Up School. I can't wait to meet and work with people over here!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Tanya x
