Meet Niki Simpson,
Sydney Based Makeup Artist
A qualified makeup artist based in Sydney, Australia, Niki studied 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 9 years as a MUA, helping all of them to bring out their natural beauty (and confidence) for their big day.
Even though she didn’t begin her career as a makeup artist, Niki has always been a creative type. Right after 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, before she came back to Australia and 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 which have – so far – included clients such as Sennheiser, Alexander Thomas Media, 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 Wedding Sparrow, White and Vintage Bride.
