The Makeup Studio

Internationally renowned makeup artist Michelle Devereux has opened a dedicated makeup school and retail outlet in New Zealand.

Located in central Hamilton, ‘The Makeup Studio’ is New Zealand's first dedicated makeup school, catering for professional, semi-professional or budding makeup artists as well as offering one-on-one private tutorials and a retail outlet.

The Makeup Studio’s classes cater for groups ranging from 5 to 20 people, or can be personalised to one-on-one sessions. Michelle teaches everything from beginner to advanced techniques, covering all the areas of expertise from skin analysis, to day and night makeup, applications for teenagers and mature women, and how to use the right products for you.

Michelle's extensive experience in the makeup industry makes her one of the country's most accomplished artists. Over 21 years, she has worked with all the world’s most glamorous fashion titles, including Vogue, Elle and Harpers Bazaar and has tended to celebrities such as Naomi Watts, Cindy Crawford, Cate Blanchett and Elle McPherson.

“Returning to New Zealand after being based overseas for so many years, I couldn’t help but see how much the country has grown in stature when it comes to the fashion industry” says Michelle.  “Not only are our designers receiving accolades on the world stage, but our makeup and hair industry is very strong now and this is the perfect time to lend my expertise to the next wave of creative artists”.
