“The most enjoyable aspect of my job is seeing woman of all ages feel confident and beautiful”

I love being a makeup artist, simply for that reason.

Hi! My Name is Emily Wilson and I'm a Hervey Bay based qualified make up artist specializing in all types of make up, make up lessons and eyebrow re-shaping. With over 10 years' experience in the beauty industry I understand what it takes to bring out the best in all of my clients.

After completing my diploma in beauty therapy I went overseas and worked on 5 star cruise ships where I further studied in this industry. When I came back home I wanted to get more in touch with my creative side and decided to go back and study make up further - now I'm in my dream job.

The more I work on people and see their reaction to their transformation the more I love my job. So whether you are looking for someone to help you create your perfect wedding day, or you want to learn how to bring out the best in you, please contact me. I would love to have the opportunity to make you the best version of yourself.

Emily you seriously did the most fantastic job. Everyone kept commenting on who did my make up. It stayed on all night and I didn't have to re-touch a thing. I think you'll have quite a few of my friends booked in with you soon!

Ashley Wrigley

Hey Emily. I can't remember whether I said thank you for doing the makeup for me, mum and the girls for our wedding. I'm so sorry if I didn't!!! You did such an amazing job and everyone commented on how wonderful it was and how fabulous you were.

Jacque Richmond

Emily did the make-up for myself and my bridal party on my wedding day. I don't normally wear a lot of makeup but Emily was happy to apply what I was comfortable with and she was very knowledgeable about what sort of makeup looks good in your photos. Emily was actually recommended to me by my photographer, which says a lot when you're in the business of wedding photography. On the day, Emily came to us and did our makeup where we were getting ready, which meant we could just relax in our robes. I was extremely happy with the beautiful, professional makeup Emily applied, she is a wonderful makeup artist who uses quality products.

Bernadette Signitzer

My Mum, sister and daughter were equally happy with their makeup. Em, you made us all feel so gorgeous and special. You were the perfect balance of professional and friendly, helping maintain a relaxed environment but making sure we were all ready on time. Thanks again for making me feel extra beautiful on such a special day.

I have used Emily Wilson from Make ‘EM’ Up, for professional family photos and also for special occasions. I love that Emily is so versatile; she understands the importance of the right look to suit the occasion. I was particularly happy with how well Emily enhanced my features but still keeping a very natural look to suit the family photo setting.
