As a child
From a young age I would always ask my mum if I could do her makeup. I’d try and rope all of her friends into letting me do their hair and I would play for hours creating masterpieces (mainly messy scrunchy buns). I always dreamt of becoming a hairdresser and travelling the world, so as soon as I could, I started working Saturdays at a local hair salon. I learnt all things hair; from washing to blow waving and became the best coffee maker in the salon!
I began an apprenticeship when I was 16 but did not complete it as life’s responsibilities took over and I changed course to start working in the building industry with better pay so I could save for a house and put myself through Beauty School. Once out of Beauty School, I applied for numerous counter jobs at ‘high end’ cosmetic companies, but was repeatedly knocked back. Instead of letting it get me down, I invested myself further in completing more intensive makeup and hair courses and further education within Marketing and social media management.
Now & beyond
Today, I am a freelance makeup artist with a large client base. I have a strong presence in the competitive fitness industry, with a professional team specialising in makeup, hair, and tanning to get all my clients looking their absolute best on stage. I have been glamming Perth Brides since 2010 and continue to build and grow my bridal resume booked up until 2022.
I felt like a Supermodel! — SLOANETracey Kaye is a true professional in every sense of the word. I was really nervous about having my make up done, past experiences with other make up artists were not great. I had a photo shoot booked. This was completely outside my comfort zone. My nerves quickly turned to excitement after Tracey made me feel so incredibly comfortable throughout. I knew immediately I could trust her & left the entire look in her hands, both make up & hair. I cannot tell you how much fun I had, I remember walking away feeling so confident & happy. I felt like a Supermodel! It is very rare to meet someone so passionate & genuinely enthusiastic about what they do, with so much attention to detail. She did an amazing job! I can't recommend Tracey's work highly enough, Thank you Tracey Kaye for making me feel so special, such a memorable experience!
