MULTI AWARD WINNING
NATIONAL AND QUEENSLAND
BRIDAL MAKEUP ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Australia's most creative and professional vendors within the wedding industry congregate annually at The Star Gold Coast to celebrate the ABIA National Designer of Dreams Awards.
Hosted by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy, the Designer of Dreams Awards honour V.O.W.S. (Vendors of Wedding Services) who have consistently delivered excellence every year for the past four consecutive years.
In 2017, I first attended the ABIA National Designer of Dreams Awards after working with hundreds of gorgeous brides to be humbled in being awarded the prestigious title of ABIA 2017 National Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year, and in doing so, being recognised as Australia's No.1 Bridal Makeup Artist.
I then returned in 2018 where I was again awarded the ABIA National Designer of Dreams Award National Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year!
Along with the two National Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year awards, back in 2016, I was also awarded the state title of ABIA 2016 QLD Bridal Makeup Artist of the Year with an impressive Bridal rating of 99.74%.
These awards are obviously career highlights that have come off the back of many years perfecting my craft and helping transform brides dreams into a reality for their big day, which for me is so rewarding in itself.
I am truly proud of these titles, as unlike numerous other awards, these awards are influenced by bridal/client feedback which is ultimately what is is most important to me.
With wedding bookings spanning up to 2 years in advance, please contact me as early as possible if you would like to book your wedding makeup with AWARD WINNING MAKEUP ARTIST Lara Quinn.
