“When I’m an important part of someone’s day, it’s my duty to ensure that they feel number one. From first contact to the end of the service where I am packing up my kit, I pride myself on a client experience that’s one to remember.'“
- Bridget Sophie
FOR THE LOVE OF MAKEUP
Awarded as a finalist for Victorian Bridal Makeup Artist Of Year 2019 at the ABIA Awards was incredible. Being awarded on the same night as Victorian Hairstylist Of The Year 2019 was more than a blessing. And then, to be a Finalist for Australian Makeup Artist Of the Year in Bridal and Formal at the AMIA Awards (only 6 nominated) was out of this world.
These awards meant the world to me because they weren’t just about skill and application - they were about overall client experience and services as a business overall. And that’s what I pride myself on.
When you book with me you’re booking a professional who comes on time, works efficiently, makes sure your happiness is number one priority and is someone you can depend on - for anything. Need milk for coffee and you’re stressing out because none of your bridesmaids can go? Hun, it’s fine, I’ll go pick up some quickly.
So often we look after others. We have partners, children, washing, bills, washing, bills…. washing, family and friends. And to be a part of someone’s day whether it’s their school formal, birthday, wedding, girls night out, job interview or blind date - I’m here to say ‘Nope, this is all about you today.’
WHEN IT ALL BEGAN
From the age of 2 I was picking up brushes and painting. I was always fascinated with colours and shapes before I really knew what they were.
Throughout my schooling life I furthered my studies in fine art, photography and design, while also studying Theatrical Makeup.
With my continuing passion for design I completed my Bachelor Of Communication in Advertising. From there worked as a Senior Art Director for over a decade on brands such as Renault, Target, Bank of Melbourne, Honda and Puma.
I loved my job, but my underlying passion for makeup had been burning strong - so I went back to study makeup while working full time. Yes, it was hectic. No, I had no time for anything. But to be back on the brushes left me feeling energised and full of life again.
So I left a career I had built. And started again. Building Bridget Sophie Studio from scratch.
WHAT I DO TODAY
Today I do what I love. And that’s providing my clients with incredible client service with luxurious hair and makeup experiences.
With a lifetime of experience in art, I have developed an eye for design, colour and balance. All while perfecting your skin tone and enhancing your best assets - whether thats your eyes, lips or skin (or all of the above).
I do this by ensuring my kit is filled with industry leading products including Giorgio Armani, Marc Jacobs, Laura Mercier, MAC Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Lancôme, Kryolan, Chanel, Anastasia Beverly Hills and YSL, just to name a few.
And when it comes to stunning hair I have you covered. From voluminous blow waves to beautiful updos - we can work together to give the life and dimension you want for your event.
I regularly attend events around the globe to keep up to date with the latest trends, fashions and techniques so you always look on point.
And I’m proud to be an exclusive member of MAC Cosmetics, Makeup Forever, Kryolan Official International and Modelrock Lashes, so I’m also up to date on the latest products.
