Brisbane Makeup Lessons   

A hands-on lesson where you’ll learn the art of makeup  

There are some days when popping on some lipgloss and mascara, and throwing your hair up in a messy bun are enough. There are others where you want to look like a supermodel and turn heads. But one things for sure, makeup is always going to boost your mood no matter how much or little you’re wearing. 


As a makeup artist with over 20 years’ experience, I’m a big believer that every woman deserves to look and feel their best every day. 


When I started out in business, I was surprised how many women didn’t know much about makeup and how they were often too embarrassed to ask. They hadn’t grown up around makeup, so they didn’t know if they were applying makeup correctly (if they even wore it!). 


It became my mission to empower women on the art of makeup; to help them learn the ‘why’ of makeup.


My Brisbane based makeup lessons are designed to give you personal attention, answering your makeup questions, showing you all the techniques, and helping you learn how to apply makeup, and the colours to use for your skin type. 


If you’re looking for a girly day out, you can book a group makeup workshop. Private 1:1 makeup lessons are available if you’d prefer to have individual attention and a safe environment to ask your makeup questions. 


So, if you want to learn the art of makeup from a professional makeup artist, book in to visit me in my studio.

Megan Dent - Makeup Artist (s).jpg

Hi, I’m Megan, Freelance Makeup Artist and Beauty Therapist

For over 20+ years, I’ve worked as a makeup artist, helping women look and feel beautiful every day. When I started my salon, clients always asked what makeup I wore, what brushes I used and how I applied it. I quickly learnt that so many women, of differing ages, were looking for guidance when it came to makeup. 


So I made it my mission to let women know they’re not alone. I’ve now worked with hundreds of women, sharing my makeup tips and tricks and helping them find their unique style. I believe that no matter what stage of life you’re at, you deserve to look and feel your best. 


I’m hugely passionate about educating women about all things makeup, and that’s why I’ve created these makeup lessons. It doesn’t matter what level of skill you have, or where you live, you can now access the insider tips from a professional makeup artist. 


"Looking natural and keeping it simple"

"Thank you so much for the group makeup workshop for my daughters and myself. We loved how warm and welcoming you were and that you focused the lesson on looking natural and keeping it simple which was exactly what we needed. I feel that we're all better equipped to navigate the cosmetic counters to get value for money, and that my girls know that less is more. I really enjoyed being able to do it with the girls, and you navigated our 3 age groups, skin types, styles and face shapes seamlessly. I think we all got more value from doing it together!" - Marie
