"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."
I believe in the creativity that inspires me, the ability that empowers me and the passion that drives me to succeed. My name is Olivia, a make-up artist who strives to produce creative and unique work. I love being inspired by the simple things in life and working with adventurous people. I used to specialise in bridal make-up artistry in Adelaide, but now work in many fields, as a make-up artist, hairstylist and photographer.
Make-up artistry is not only my business, it is my passion and I am devoted to providing clients with a friendly and professional service, in any location of your choice. I will create a look to best suit your facial colours and features with a variety of quality products. I am a trained beauty advisor in both skincare and cosmetic products. I have worked in retail cosmetics and have very good time management skills, working quickly and accurately in time-pressured conditions, such as applying make-up for Theatre, Photoshoots and Fashion Shows. I travel throughout Australia and Internationally.
I now work predominately in fashion and have worked for many photographers in this field. I love working on creative projects and developing new ideas and techniques. If you are in the fashion industry and would like to collaborate, please contact me. I have worked with Nuovogue, Steven Jones, Kym Harper, Ernest Mcleod, Allen Shubin and many other wonderful photographers. I also love to experiment with body-art designs and try out new products and techniques. I have worked with renowned Body-Artist Joanne Gair, who has worked for Demi Moore, Britney Spears, The Olson Twins, Madonna, Heidi Klum, Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford and many more.
I am also a photographer and design many of my own photoshoots, sets, props and costumes. I supply modelling packages to up and coming models for their portfolio and composition cards. With make-up, hair, photography and graphic design included, these packages are a great price and very popular, thanks to all my wonderful models.
I also work in Film, TV and Theatre. I have worked on several independent films and worked with Today Tonight on Channel 7 and worked with The Festival Theatre in South Australia. I was also the principal make-up artist for politician Isobel Redmond for her campaign in Adelaide and recently did the make-up for fashion designer Liz Davenport.
I will be moving to Melbourne soon and will be studying my Diploma in Special Effects. My goal in life is to work in Film and create amazing and unique special effects, it will be a very exciting new challenge and I will uploading many of my new creations in the future on deviantart, so keep an eye out!
