When it comes to looking our best for a special event, where would we be without freelance makeup artists? Lending their artistry and expertise to highlighting only our best features, they not only make us look the part — but feel it, too. With party season coming up, and hopefully the ability to actually enjoy it if alert levels drop before Christmas, we suggest you make a booking with one of the supremely talented beauty experts below. They’re bound to be busy.
The 2021 Denizen Everyday Heroes survey saw over 12,000 votes cast in support of local businesses during these challenging times, with the aim of shining a light on the people and places that make every day a little bit better. Here are Auckland’s favourite mobile makeup maestros, as voted by you.
MOST VOTED: Beauty By Alexandra
With her penchant for natural, glowy glam, it’s no wonder Beauty By Alexandra is your most voted freelance makeup artist. Supremely talented across both makeup and hairstyling, she also offers her services for weddings, fashion shoots — and lessons, so you can pick up a lipstick, brush or sponge with nearly as much confidence as she does. We’d still opt for Alexandra’s artistry over our own, though, any day.
HONOURABLE MENTION: Phoebe Watt
Whether it’s a bold and bright look you’re after, or something nice and neutral, makeup artist Phoebe Watt will apply with aplomb. Working her magic for special events, photoshoots and weddings, this beauty buff is a dab hand with any brief.
HONOURABLE MENTION: Grayson Coutts
Highly experienced hair and makeup artist Grayson Coutts has a renowned reputation for his prowess in the local beauty industry. Having worked with local and international celebrities, on countless photoshoots and for many a private client, Coutts’ eye and attention to detail make him a glamourous go-to indeed.
The rest of the best…
