About Emma’s makeup philosophy…
Makeup celebrates and enhances your natural beauty.

Emma specialises in enhancing your ‘natural look’ - fresh, glowing skin; natural, full eyebrows; enhanced eyes with subtle undertones to make their colour pop; and lips that are full and luscious. Whether it’s your wedding makeup or a special occasion, Emma’s makeup will bring out your natural beauty.
But her skills don’t stop there...
If you are looking for something different, Emma can expertly produce a bold lip or a stunning smokey eye. She is also skilled in character makeup and Special Effects having been regularly asked to design and create looks for special occasions, editorial or advertising. Emma has created Zombies, Drag Queens, Queens of Hearts and even Voldemort from Harry Potter. Nothing is off limits when it comes to character work.
Emma is committed to keeping her skills up to date and developing her capabilities by attending masterclasses and expos in addition to constantly reading and researching so she can provide superior service to her clients.
From a young age, Emma has been interested in design and art. She was so committed that she traveled extensively to study in Sydney. After graduating in 2004, Emma has been doing makeup ever since!
In 2007, Emma added a Diploma of Beauty Therapy to her qualifications, taking her knowledge and understanding of the skin to the next level.
While working nationally for a paramedical skin care company, Emma discovered her passion for teaching makeup to others and went on to become an educator in the makeup industry.
Emma managed and taught at a private makeup college in Newcastle for 6 years. It was during this time that Emma’s need to continually improve and learn was fueled further. She started to do more courses and research to keep herself as up to date as possible with current trends and technology.
After conversing with numerous clients, Emma discovered that there was a true gap in the market - where people who wear makeup regularly don’t necessarily appreciate how to best apply it to suit their features. And so, Emma began providing private makeup lessons.
Emma’s business, Newcastle Makeup, specialises in custom private lessons, and makeup applications that celebrate your natural features. Every face is different and every person has different makeup needs. Emma takes the time to ensure she understands her clients and what they desire. At the end of your lesson you’ll walk away feeling confident, educated and able to highlight the best version of yourself.
