Gold Coast based make-up Artist, Kylie Eustace has just been announced as a finalist for The Australian Beauty Industry Awards- Make-up Artist of the Year. Judging by the reactions from her past and present clients, this news came as no surprise as they had quickly discovered, Kylie is absolutely dedicated to her Art.
Kylie was honoured to be a finalist alongside some of the countries most talented make-up artists. Kylie has always been so inspired by previous winners Rae Morris who was last year announced in the Hall of Fame and Racheal Montgomery who was make-up Artist of the year in 2012 and 2013. Make-up Artist of the year is only possible to win twice so it is all very exciting.
Kylie lives, breathes and loves everything about make-up and being a make-up Artist. She is extremely particular and loves experimenting and pushing her limits and believes this attitude keeps her creative and creating and makes her feel alive.
Kylie has been in the make-up and hair industries for over 20 years.
Rare days off will usually find Kylie mixing colours and getting around with test stripes decorating her wrists and arms or trying to convince an innocent bystander to just hold still for a second while she try’s something new out. Kylie loves to share her passion, creations, and journey and is satisfied seeing her clients, models and work colleague’s faces light up when they see the final results of the make-up she applies. Loving how makeup has the ability to make people smile.
Kylie who also owns a busy salon, has had her work published in magazines worldwide. Her work includes Fashion and editorial photoshoots, Bridal make-up and fashion parades. Kylie also teaches, giving individual and group make-up tuition and is a regular ‘Industry expert’ guest speaker for Beauty schools on the Gold and Sunshine coasts and in Brisbane.
For the last four years Kylie has directed and been the lead artist at fashion parades with the biggest event being the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival/ IFW. Last year Kylie and her team made up 44 models.
More recently Kylie has been doing specialist make-up for complex underwater photo shoots, The Imaginarium Series and also an underwater music video.
Forget the glitz and glamour: that is what the client gets. A makeup artist must be prepared to work hard and at times, very hard. Equally as important Kylie believes if you want to become a professional makeup Artist you must be a good communicator – or else! Always listen very carefully, explain options and outcomes even more carefully, come to an agreement and then deliver. Kylie feels, with good communication, no job is ever beyond her. The ability to interpret, liaise and deliver the ideas and result best suited to whatever job she is working on has been her greatest strength.
Being an ABIA Makeup artist of the year finalist is an opportunity for Kylie to share her passion at a new and exciting level.
