I know it can be tricky knowing where to look, so I have compiled a list of my favourite makeup artists in Wellington & Wairarapa.

Wellington/Hutt based:

Emily Rose Makeup Artist

I started off my journey as a young teen, experimenting with makeup late at night, only to wash it off right before bed. That shortly grew into a passion for doing others makeups, beginning with my gorgeous mum and sisters. I then studied, gaining a Diploma in Fashion, Theatre and Media Makeup and also a Diploma in Beauty Therapy.

And here we are. This is my job. I meet the most beautiful women and I get to make them feel ‘that’. Through my love for makeup and creativity, I am able to help them see what I see. Whether it’s an ever so special first school ball, a business photo shoot or your amazing wedding day – my aim is to make you feel the most gorgeous version of you!
