Living and breathing make up, she is particular and loves experimenting and pushing her limits and believes this attitude fuels her creativity.
Rare days off will usually find Kylie Eustace mixing colours and getting around with test stripes decorating her wrists and arms or trying to convince an innocent bystander to just hold still for a second while she try's something new out.
She loves to share her passion, creations, and journey and is satisfied seeing her clients, models and work colleague's faces light up when they see the final results of the make up she applies.
The chase doesn't stop there, as Kylie Eustace also owns a busy salon, which has had her work published in magazines worldwide. Her portfolio boasts fashion and editorial photoshoots, bridal make up and fashion parades.
She also teaches, giving individual and group make up tuition and is a regular 'Industry Expert' guest speaker for beauty schools on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts and in Brisbane.
Recently Kylie Eustace worked with a collaborative team and and did the specialist make up for a complex underwater photo shoots, The Imaginarium Series, along with an underwater music video.
Forget the glitz and glamour: that is what the client gets. A make up artist must be prepared to work hard and at times, even harder. Equally as important, she believes if you want to become a professional make up artist you must be a good communicator - or else! Always listen very carefully, explain options and outcomes even more carefully, come to an agreement and then deliver.
Being an ABIA Make Up Artist of the Year finalist is an opportunity for Kylie Eustace to share her passion at a new and exciting level.
