There are some essential things to consider when finding a make-up artist for your special day. Not only should they be a professional make-up artist, but they should also have experience in bridal make-up.


A skilled Wedding Make-up Artist specialises in creating day-to-night looks, knows the different techniques and products that work with different lighting situations, and applies make-up that stays put and looks good both in person and in photos.


You want to be sure you're working with someone who listens to your wishes, creates a lasting look that works perfectly with your unique features and style, and provides a warm, stress-free atmosphere as you get ready! So it pays to do your research, view online portfolios and read testimonials to help you choose the right make-up expert.


At ABIA, we love helping couples with their wedding planning, by connecting you with trustworthy and quality wedding vendors. ABIA-accredited vendors come with recommendations and reviews by real and verified wedding customers, and those providing excellence in their fields are recognised at a state and national level.


At the 21st Victorian ABIA Wedding Awards, we invited over 6,000 newly married couples to review and rate their wedding vendors. Here we present this year’s top wedding make-up artists in Melbourne and Geelong as rated by you, the beautiful brides of Victoria!
