Hi, my name is Sue Kim and I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of helping people find their confidence through my joy of makeup artistry.

Starting in hair and beauty school in Korea over 20 years ago, I continued my studies in Special FX make-up, working with a team in many film, television and theatre entertainment industries throughout Korea.

Continuing to hone my craft; I continued working on both beauty and SFX make-up with many leading companies such as LG, Samsung, Coca Cola and Addidas Korea - bridging my talents into professional bridal makeup since the late 1990s.  

Since moving to Cairns, I've enjoyed being able to help many clients achieve their stunning looks for both weddings and events. Furthermore, I've had the privilege of working with many talented individuals within the film, television and sectors in Australia. ​
