JOSLEEN HAWAS: FREELANCE MAKEUP ARTIST

I am a Brisbane-based freelance makeup artist with over 13 years of experience working independently in the industry. I have extensive experience in all areas of makeup artistry, ranging from beauty and editorial shoots, stage makeup, special effects and film/television through to bridal, formal and special occasion makeup.

With my experience, technical skill and creativity, I can create the right look for any project or occasion, whether it be avant-garde fashion, period makeup or simple and understated makeup for a formal or wedding.

I have a very positive and personable approach to all my work and I like to start by having a chat to every new client to find out what their personal style is, and to discuss the look that they are going for and the level of coverage that they are comfortable with. I love working with my clients to help bring out their best features and making them feel comfortable in their own skin.

I work with two different types of makeup – traditional and airbrush – and will discuss the benefits of either option with you before we get started. All my pricing also includes the application of natural lashes to help complete your look.

Currently, I am based at Vanity Lashes in Newstead several days a week as their in-house freelance makeup artist. You can book me via their website or I am also available for mobile or on-site bookings, however this may incur a travel fee depending on your location.

Also available for group makeup bookings for weddings and formals, and I team up with local hair stylist Hair By Tiffany to provide a comprehensive hair and makeup service for your big day. You can find more information about my pricing and group bookings here.

For more information about my freelance makeup services or to have a chat about how I can help you achieve the look you are after, please get in touch with me on 0417 720 754.
