There comes a time in every gal’s life when a bit of tinted moisturiser, a smattering of bronzer, and a coat of mascara just isn’t going to cut it.

We’re talking weddings, extra spesh dinner parties and work events, engagement parties, you know those events where a wobbly line of eye-liner is captured forever in photos; in albums, on grandma’s walls, on Facebook. Gulp!

Makeup regrets were so yesterday, along with that pallet of bright blue eye shadow you’ve stored in the bathroom cabinet for a rainy day. (Pssst! Get rid of it. Now!)

Save yourself those regrets, and next time you’ve got a special shindig on the calendar, call on one of the best makeup artists on the Sunshine Coast.

Pru Edwards Makeup

This lady has got serious skillz. Having touched up faces that have appeared in magazine big-players like Vogue, Cosmopolitan Bride, and the now-defunct Grazia, Pru Edwards is no novice when it comes to makeup and enhancing a woman’s features. With a self-confessed obsession for bridal makeup, you know who to call if you’ve got a big day coming up. We’re in love with her natural style!

Sally Townsend

Sally Townsend is a makeup artist who lives and breathes weddings so much that she runs a website and magazine totally dedicated them, aka The Bride’s Tree. And while she’s a total pro, we’d totally recommend getting a trial before the big day just so you can chat with her about your wedding plans and stock up on any insider tips.

Natalie Hunter Makeup

If you wanna lounge around in your pjs at home while you get your makeup done, then Natalie Hunter could be the Sunshine Coast makeup artist for you. Toting a makeup kit packed with Mac, Dior, Nars, and so much more, you can bet that your face will be treated to what it needs. Nat’s got the trends mastered but nails the flawless, barely-there look just as well.

Erin Stuart Styles

Recently relocating back to the Sunny Coast, Erin Stuart Styles coasts across the region helping ladies get prepped and primed for big days, parties, and any other kind of must-look-amazeballs-makeup occasion. Also a talented hair stylist, this gal is your one-stop shop, and halts just shy of picking out your outfit. From boho goddess to super glam, a few brush strokes by this pro and you’ll be good to go.

Tasleema Nigh

If using cruelty-free makeup brands is up your beautifying alley, Tasleema is your gateway to a long-lasting look that won’t hurt any of your furry friends in the process. With a serious set of skills and experience spanning TV, magazines, and big-time brand photo shoots, this is one lady who would never buckle under the pressure of your big day. Which means clean, crisp, perfect makeup for you. Score!

Jenna Turner Makeup Artistry

We couldn’t leave Jenna Turner off our best makeup artists on the Sunshine Coast list now, could we? She’s one of those girls who you want in your corner, keeping you calm, cool, and ready to stroll down that aisle. And while she’s in your corner she’s going to beautify the bejeezus out of you. It’s a win-win. Love what you see? This makeup maven also holds private makeup lessons, so you can master your favourite looks everyday of the week.
