While you might not actively think about it, behind every talented movie star, television actor, pop star and model lies an equally talented make-up artist. From the special effects make-up you see in movies like Avatar to the high fashion looks sported by models in catwalk shows – and everything in between – make-up is a glamourous business that takes hard work and commitment. But you don’t have to go all the way to Hollywood to find some the best make-up artists in the business. In fact, you can find them right here in Perth – at the 2017 Perth Hair and Make Up Artist Awards Expo
. Created and organised by make-up artist and hairdresser Shelley Meyer, the Perth Hair and Make Up Artist Awards Expo is the premier showcase of make-up artistry in the state. On Sunday July 30
, the best of the best of the Perth hair and make-up industry will come together at the Perth Town Hall
to exhibit their incredible talent – and we’re going to be there
, too! So what’s it all about? Here’s four great reasons you should join us at this year’s Perth Hair and Makeup Artist Awards Expo:
