Alistair’s interest in special effects make-up started in 2005 during a high school excursion all about film gore make-up. Since then, Alistair became a self-taught make-up artist working in the Perth LGBTQIA+ community working as an entertainer and a make-up artist for multiple charity events, such as the renowned Club West. This led Alistair to studying his Diploma of Specialist Make-Up Services in 2012 and received Student of the Year through his hard work and dedication to the make-up industry.
Alistair has been working as a professional make-up artist for 8 years now, all over Western Australia. He has worked on multiple short films, stage productions and feature films, including working alongside professional make-up brands such as Kryolan. Alistair was recently a key make-up artist and prosthetics artist for the film, The Decadent and Depraved; a feature film shot in Rural Western Australia in late 2016, bringing home the award for Best Prosthetics Make-Up from the Oniros Awards in Italy.
After Alistair received his Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, he has spent the last 7 years teaching at multiple colleges in Perth and Busselton, developing, facilitating and delivering make-up courses and workshops.
Alistair’s main passion is special effects and prosthetics. His passion has lead him to continue learning in this field, participating in multiple SFX workshops and maintaining high profile relationships with award winning artists.
Alistair joined the TrainSmart Australia team in 2019, and teaches speciality units such as Special Effects, Prosthetics and our Advanced Prosthetics Workshop. Alistair is also TrainSmart Australia’s National Digital Marketing Manager.
