Shane Troy


Hello, my name is Shane Troy,
I have been a makeup artist for twenty years, makeup has always been my absolute passion since I was a teenager, my journey as a makeup artist has taken me from Melbourne to Sydney & Perth (AUS), to Toronto (CAN) & the (U.S), I am now permanently based in Cairns / Port Douglas Far North Queensland & travel frequently
for work.

I have been blessed to have worked & trained with some of the world’s best makeup artists, I created a very successful career with cosmetic houses such as M.A.C Australia & Canada, Chanel & Dior. I’ve worked on runway shows, Television, I’ve had the privilege of working with Celebrities & have had an extensive & successful career working as a bridal makeup artist.

As a trained M.A.C artist of twelve years I learnt how to perfect every makeup style, understanding that makeup is not only about perfecting & enhancing the exterior but also bringing out someone’s inner beauty & personality, making people look & feel their best through makeup is what I understand & what I love to do, it drives me every day to be the best that I can be.

I started out when there was no social media & very proud to say I’m from the old school of makeup artists, having the ability to look at someone & instantly know what look is going to suit them best, I understand that social media such as Instagram is important, & I can certainly do a beautiful polished Instagram look if that’s what you want, but makeup to me is so much more than that, it’s not about doing the same look again & again & again. It’s about tailoring a beautiful look to every unique individual. I look at your natural beauty and celebrate your unique individual characteristics to achieve an overall look to compliment who you are on the inside, as well as on the outside.

A very important part of my career is working as a bridal makeup artist, seeing a bride happy & overjoyed on her special day, looking stunning & glowing with happiness, this makes me feel special, it’s not just a job for me, it’s my passion in life & I look forward to sharing it with you..
