Meet Niki Simpson,
Sydney Based Makeup Artist
A qualified Sydney makeup artist, Niki studied a certificate 4 in makeup artistry at Cameron Jane Makeup Design, but it was in the years followng that she developed her signature natural style of hair and makeup. Niki has been lucky enough to work with hundreds of brides in her 10 years as a MUA, helping all of them to bring out their natural beauty (and confidence) on their big day.
Even though she didn’t begin her career journey as a makeup artist, Niki has always been a creative type. After finishing school she studied photography for a year before switching focus to acting and completing a Creative Arts degree majoring in drama. This allowed her to work as a professional theatre actor for a few years while travelling overseas. After returning to Australia, Niki found a job in TV where she stayed for the better part of 10 years. This experience proved invaluable in helping her to become the makeup artist and business owner she is today.
While weddings are a huge part of what she does, Niki also works on commercial campaigns for businesses small and large, which have – so far – included clients such as Sennheiser, Alexander Thomas Media, Publisher Textiles, Surface Art, Shoes of Prey, Polli, IVI Organics, Love Merino, Dashluxe, Fairfax Media, Westpac, Mamamia TV and Nimble Activewear. Her bridal editorial makeup work has been featured in Hello May, Magnolia Rouge, Complete Wedding and Real Weddings, and on blogs including Modern Wedding, Wedding Sparrow, White, Confetti Daydreams, Style Me Pretty and Vintage Bride.
