Hi!  I'm Asher

Before becoming a Makeup Artist, I worked in hospitality for many years. I would often take a lot of time getting ready for work, playing with makeup and glamming myself up for the day. I always say that I choose a makeup look first and an outfit second. Once I realised I could merge my passion for Makeup and people into one, I decided to study Fashion Makeup Artistry in Wellington, NZ. From there Asher Artistry was born. Straight away I was offered a job at MAC Cosmetics in Wellington where I worked for a year before transferring over to MAC in Melbourne, Australia. I was promoted rather quickly to Assistant Manager and loved helping to lead a team. I am now fortunate enough to work my dream job as a full time freelance Makeup Artist. I am based in Nelson but will travel anywhere as I am completely mobile. I am privileged to say that in the 6 years I have been in the industry I have worked for countless fashion labels and designers, musicians and public figures such as Julia Stone and Simone Anderson, hundreds of brides and bridal parties and even the local Mayor! I absolutely love what I do and it is shocking to me that after all this time I still hear so many people say that they feel intimidated by Makeup Artists, that they think they have to be “Pretty” or “Young” to get their makeup done. It breaks my heart, SO my mission is to make every single person that sits in my makeup chair laugh! To feel beautiful in their own skin, feel respected and at ease, and then walk out feeling like a million bucks! It is my job to bring out your best features, and have fun while doing it. This is my promise to you.

Annika, New Zealand

"I have just completed the Asher Artistry everyday make up course - Wow it is fantastic. I have always been reasonably happy with applying make up but still not overly sure what I was doing was right so to be shown properly and easily was so good. Love listening to Asher talk and explain how easy it was to do also to show the products used and what she loves was epic.
Really would recommend this course."

Raech, New Zealand

"I thought I knew how to do my everyday makeup until I took Asher's course. Now i'm looking fierce and feeling good when I go out with a fresh face of makeup.
Would 100% recommend Asher's course. It's easy to follow, and if I need a refresher I can always go back to individual videos for a recap."

"I cannot recommend Asher enough! Her professional approach makes you feel instantly relaxed and her beautiful nature makes you feel like you’ve known her for years. Asher did my hens do makeup and wedding makeup and smashed it! She is one talented lady & will always be my first choice for makeup! Thanks so much for making me feel so beautiful on such big days in my life "
