EMILY SIMMS MAKEUP ARTIST

I am a fully qualified makeup artist, having received my diploma in 2007 at The Frampton Institute in Queensland, Australia.  I studied under Peter Frampton, who sadly no longer runs his makeup school.  Peter is a well renowned cinemagraphic makeup artist.  In fact, he won an Oscar for Chief Makeup Artist on the movie Braveheart, with Mel Gibson.  So I saw him as the best person for me to learn from.  Since then I have decided my heart lies in fashion, bridal, editorial, and events.  I have also completed a hair styling course, so my services are available for basic hairstyling.

I believe that makeup should enhance what you were born with, and make you feel and look your best.  I pride myself on having my clients feel completely at ease and confident in my abilities.  There is nothing worse than sitting in a makeup artist's chair, with that dreaded feeling that you are not going to like the work they have done.  I know... I've been there myself!
