Questions and Answers

Why should I hire a professional makeup artist to do my wedding makeup?


We believe in the magic of feeling your most beautiful, best self! On your wedding day, having your dream look created for you by your artist will help you feel confident, relaxed, special and excited. Your professional makeup artist will know how to prepare different skin types, match skin tones and balance facial features to create individualised, beautiful and natural makeup.

Relax, feel pampered and enjoy the company of your loved ones on this significant day. We believe that half the fun is getting ready! Your wedding day isn’t the day be running around to cosmetics counters, or putting the pressure on yourself to magically get it right. Your cousin or friend might do a good job of their own makeup, but you don’t want them panicking when they realise how stressful the pressure of doing someone else face can be. Like all the best things in life, we believe love is the main ingredient. And we LOVE what we do… enhancing a beautiful you.

Review this supplier

Tara and the team were such a key part of our wedding day preparation, and it was a pleasure getting ready for the ceremony with them! I’m not a big user of make-up, and only had a rough idea of the hairstyle I wanted, but Tara was able to give me both hair and make-up that was absolutely perfect for what I’d tried to explain. My 5 bridesmaids all had different length hair and roughly chose on the day what styles to have – which the team played with and made each girl look fabulous! Everyone’s make-up was perfect, and we all felt like celebrities for the day. Thank you so much Tara and team for your professionalism, friendliness, laughter and relaxed but efficient approach to what you do – you’re all amazing! Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a hair and make-up supplier.

ABSOLUTE STARS! I'm so in love with Airlie & Co. All four of my Bridesmaids looked incredible - and you could tell they felt amazing. My mum normally hates her hair, but couldn't stop looking in the mirror once Airlie & Co had mastered it and for myself. I couldn't have felt more me and so darn fabulous! They made me feel like an absolute queen!

I could not be happier to have Tara on my wedding day! My mother-in-law wasn't used to having her make-up done professionally so was a little bit tense and uneasy during the process. On top of that, my little nieces suddenly needed help putting the flowers on their hair. Tara handled everything like a pro and was so sweet and patient the whole time. She certainly made the situation easier for me. Our make-up held up well without needing any touch-ups (apart from the lipstick), and my hair stayed beautifully wavy and in place throughout the evening even after hours of dancing. Tara was personal yet professional, and she tried to understand what each of us wanted and successfully achieved it. I am so grateful to her for making everyone feel so special and beautiful on our wedding day.

Carlie was amazing! I didn’t really know what I wanted until she finished - and she absolutely nailed it. I was so happy with my hair and it held up so well the whole day - even after hours of dancing! My hair still looked amazing the next day! Tara was so lovely to work with. She did the perfect makeup looks for my Mum, bridesmaids, and myself. Our makeup lasted so well throughout the day and was perfectly customised to each of us. My bridesmaids all had a consistent look, but it was tailored to flatter their individual features and they all looked stunning. My Mum, who was very nervous about having her makeup done, felt confident and beautiful and received so many compliments. I absolutely loved my makeup too. Tara really took on board my comments and also provided really helpful guidance, and the end result was perfect.

I was made to feel like absolute Royalty. I was very impressed with the professionalism, care and attention to details the hair stylist and make up artist provided. I’d highly recommend Airlie&Co

26 Mar 2021

Tara was absolutely fantastic and listened to what we all wanted. We left with our hair looking absolutely luscious. My makeup artist (different vendor) had cancelled on me that morning due to a nasty case of gastro (an absolute nightmare for the bride!), so Tara from Airlie&Co was so helpful and even helped one of the bridesmaids do her makeup which was extremely kind and she was very very grateful! You did everything to ensure we all had an excellent day and did everything in your power to make sure we felt like vogue models... we did! Thank you :)

"Tara and Diana were a dream and I have recommended Airlie & Co to all my girlfriends. They were so calming in the morning and I was so thankful to have them there. I could not recommend them enough! You will never regret calling in the professionals on a special day.”

5 Mar 2021

The team at Airlie&Co were incredible. They attention, care and level of service they provided to my large group across multiple locations was amazing. My family and friends went out of their way to comment on how fabulous the hair and makeup services they had done were and I can’t recommend Tara and team enough!

21 Feb 2021

Airlie & Co were very attentive to my requests as a bride as well as the styles I wanted for my bridal party. I was so happy with my hair style, it was exactly what I was after and following my trial I was told exactly what I needed to get the look I was after. I would highly recommend.

31 Jan 2021

I booked Airlie & Co to look after hair for myself, my bridesmaids, both mums, and my grandma on my wedding day (big job!), and we were lucky enough to be in the expert hands of Tara! We all absolutely loved our hair - It was a really drizzly day but our hair stayed perfectly bouncy, frizz free, and in place all night long! Tara was also a really lovely, calming presence to have with us on the wedding morning… it makes such a difference (and does wonders for your nerves) when you’re working with gorgeous, friendly and understanding vendors who are also amazing at what they do!

24 Dec 2020

Tara and her team were professional and highly invested in my wedding day from the moment of first contact. We had some disruptions caused by COVID and despite this Tara adapted to the situation and provided the best service I could have asked for! I couldn’t recommend her team more!

16 Dec 2020

Tara was outstanding on the day and the lead-up to our wedding. The makeup stayed on all day and I felt amazing. Our bridesmaid and family members also looked terrific. I would have no hesitation in recommending Airlie & Co and will definitely use them again and again..

12 Dec 2020

Nothing but the best quality hair and makeup!! The stylists were so much fun to work with. I am so glad that I found Airlie&Co. All my bridesmaids looked and felt gorgeous and I have received so many compliments for my hair and makeup on the day. My special thank you goes to Paula for her extra help and care on the day xx take me back to that day ❤️

31 Oct 2020

After trialing with many other make up artists it was a breath of fresh air to meet with Airlie & Co for my wedding make up. The team are so helpful and patient with all of the questions I had leading up to the day. On the day my artist was an absolute superstar, we looked gorgeous and I look forward to booking with Airlie & Co for another event in the future.

4 Oct 2020

I had an amazing experience with my makeup and hair artist. She did an absolutely phenomenal job on my hair I still get compliments now 7+ months later on how great it looked. My makeup was flawless she really listened to what I wanted and gave advice on everything. She stayed back later than she was meant to as my photographers were super rude and was stressing me out and she was offering her help anywhere she could. The owner was a pleasure to speak with also. I will 100% be recommending them to people in the future and I would definitely use them again!!
