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. A professional makeup artist will not only ensure your makeup lasts into the evening but is also aware of lighting and weather to ensure you photograph beautifully.  We come to you. 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.

How far in advance do I need to book?


We are excited to say that 2019 is shaping up to be a very big and busy year for us. We get booked up, up to 18months in advance. To check availability, please send an enquiry form and we will get back to you regarding availability for your wedding date.

We have a large bridal party, including my MC and new inlaws, how many people can your team cater for?

We want to make sure everyone, including your in-laws and special guests feel included, so we can cater for bridal parties of up to 18 in 1-2 locations on your wedding day.

Should I have a hair and makeup trial?


We look forward to getting to know you and being a part of your special day. We truly believe that believe that achieving your dream hair and makeup is a combination of factors… skill, (product knowledge, tools, intuition and  experience but from your end we communication and collaboration. To ensure you know exactly what to expect and to build confidence.  Provide advice and expertise to refine your look. Investing in confidence is priceless for the day.

How long should I expect my makeup to last?


With most of our makeup artists having a television and film background, we know the importance of having your makeup last from the early hours and into the evening. We will always use products and application techniques with durability and longevity in mind. Your skin type, the weather and how well you look after your makeup, will determine exactly how well your makeup lasts. We recommend having a touch up kit with you on the day consisting of a powder, lipstick and gloss at minimum. We have touch up kits available for order from $85.

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.

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 ❤️

The team at Airlie&Co were all a pleasure to deal with. From the arrangements and planning to the service on the day, everything went so smoothly and was perfect. The hair and makeup artist listened to what everyone wanted and did the most amazing job. I felt so truly beautiful on the day thanks to their team. I could not recommend them highly enough!

Tara was so wonderful to work with! She absolutely nailed my hair and makeup vision and made me feel like an angel on my big day. She is super organised, warm, fun and friendly and I loved having her as part of my bride tribe on my big day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tara and her Airlie&Co team to any future bride - they are incredible.

21 Mar 2020

Tara was super professional and listened exactly to what we wanted. Mine and my bridesmaids hair turned out exactly like the photos we showed Tara - the hairstyles were beautiful and we were all extremely happy. I would highly recommend Airlie & Co for wedding hairstyles! Thank you so much!!

Absolutely loved my hair and makeup for my wedding! Tara was an absolute pleasure to have there on the day and she did everything perfectly. My hair and makeup looked perfect and stayed that way all day and night. Highly recommend.

The girls from Airlie&Co did an amazing job on my bride tribe! The girls looked absolutely stunning! I absolutely loved my hair and makeup! Our makeup wore well and lasted long into the night! The combination of both services made everything so easy. The girls we had Sherri and Bree were both so beautiful, professional and easy going, nothing was too hard. Highly recommend Airlie&Co to any future bride looking for hair and makeup artists! xx

Tara exceeded all of my expectations and made me feel my absolute best self on my wedding day. She did myself and 4 of my bridal party & everybody looked stunning. This woman is a magician & I cant recommend her enough. From my inquiry to booking, then the rehearsal and the wedding day.. I cant fault her. Shes punctual, professional, talented and such a darling! Thanks again for going above and beyond and making me and my girls look fab!

18 Jan 2020

The Airlie & Co team exceeded all of my (very high) expectations for hair and make up for my wedding day. Right from the initial contact, the girls were phenomenal in every aspect. They are professional, informative and particularly lovely to deal with. Tara was very patient and helpful at my trial consultation, and on the day, her and Shelley listened to all of my bridesmaids and their very different personal tastes to make them all feel and look beautiful. They also were amazing with the hair for my step-daughter as a flower girl, and my Mum (who had never had her make up done before professionally) loved the make up she received. And as for my hair... it was a masterpiece and I cannot stop staring at it in my wedding pictures! Could not recommend more highly.

11 Jan 2020

Tara made me feel at ease, special and beautiful - everything a girl wants to feel on her wedding day. She is very personable and clearly a natural at what she does which made me feel confident about the way my hair and make-up was going to turn out - which was beyond my expectations. I was after the natural look, where she listened to all of my needs and made sure I was comfortable with everything she did along the way. I can’t fault a thing - I was extremely happy with my hair and make up and would highly recommend Tara.

23 Nov 2019

I wanted to personally thank you Tara and Camilla on the most beautiful makeup they did on the girls and I. They made the process so easy, and all the girls remarked how well the morning flowed, It was just so lovely talking/chatting with you both.
