get to know Austri


How long have you been doing hair & makeup?
For many years, I started my career in makeup and hair in 1999, but took a break for a few years, moved countries, got a degree in Biomedical Science and decided to get back to working in the beauty industry because it is what I love doing. I wanted to stay up to date with trends so I retrained at the prestigious London College of Fashion, where now I am lucky enough to teach the next generation of makeup artists.

What are your career highlights?
Oh this is a tricky question to answer, I have so many highlights that I’m grateful to have been part of; the first one that came to mind was working for Cartier.
My first time working at a show for Dolce Gabanna and seeing my work in the catwalk. My first red carpet event – Hair and Makeup for Lady Kitty Spencer. Working for two consecutive years (2019 & 2020) on the opening shows at the BRIT’s Awards

Why do you love working on weddings?
I feel so privileged every time I get chosen by a bride to work with them, because I know that it is one of the most important days in their life. I know how crucial it is to find the right person for your big day as I was once a bride myself. I love everything from the trials, to the big reveal!

I am passionate about working with the bride to bring out and enhance their own beauty and confidence, that will help them feel like their best self on such a special day. My bridal makeup style is elegant and natural, but flawless; I love to create looks that are timeless. Hair styles are often created organically according to what they like but making sure it suits their facial features.
I have a friendly and serene nature, which is always appreciated on the wedding day.

What are your must-have products in your kit?
I love using products that offer a natural, beautiful finish and longevity. As a big skincare fan and with my background in biomedical science I like to offer my clients the very best products and ingredients. I love using Chanel, Sisley, and Weleda “skin food”, in my kit you will find brands like Tom Ford, Armani Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury, Rodial, Bobbi Brown, Nars, ABH and MAC. If i have to choose a must have product it will probably be waterproof mascara.

Fancy name dropping some celebrities or big publications you’ve worked on?
I have been very fortunate to work with many wonderful clients including; high profile and celebrity clientele, including royalty.
World champion Dina Asher-Smith, Mabel, Johanna Konta, Lianne La Havas, Lady Kitty Spencer, London Hughes, Jourdan Dunn, Thylane Blondeau, Cindy Bruna, Alice Pagani and Tina Kunakey to name a few. Some of my work has been featured in Harper’s BAZAAR, GQ, VOGUE italia.
