When looking for your wedding makeup artist, there’s one place we all go first: Instagram.
Instagram provides great reference checks, visual examples and proof that the artist we’re eyeing up has some serious skills with makeup. But because the platform is saturated with makeup artists from all over the world, we thought we’d tighten things up a little and show you the best of the best from Australia – making your wedding makeup artist hunt for your big day a bit easier.
