Nahid Kholghi – Makeup Artist
After enjoying many years of competitive dancing as a teenager I recognised my passion for makeup and art.
Fascinated by changing the look of performers, I studied at the famous German makeup academy “die maske”, where I also did advanced training to become a lecturer for makeup and special effects.
This was the ideal foundation for the following 12 years working in the media industry and teaching my students.
My main priority for my job is finding the right balance between enhancing natural beauty and applying effective makeup techniques. A great deal of empathy helps me to boost customer´s self-confidence in their appearance.
After working in Germany, the USA, and Africa, I am happy to offer my service in the Byron Bay area, Brisbane and Sydney, Australia.
I see myself as a very enthusiastic and passionate person with a good sense of human nature. This makes it easy to find out my client´s expectations.
