My name is Asta Jurksaite and I am a freelance makeup artist specializing in Bridal and Occasion makeup.
Firstly, let me start by saying that my biggest aim is to work with you to ensure you look your very best, whether it’s classical bridal look for your big day or high fashion/latest trend makeup look for a special occasion.
And now… a little bit about myself… I have always loved everything to do with makeup, beauty and skincare, so after working in retail for more than 10 years, I have finally decided to follow my heart and pursue a career in the beauty industry. After graduating from VanityX makeup academy in 2015, I have started my freelance journey as a professional makeup artist and have never looked back.
Since I’ve left makeup college, I did many upskilling courses with international makeup artists, simply because I wanted to be as versatile as possible and not just to have one style when doing makeups. All these makeup courses have given me immense knowledge of different makeup applying techniques which I can adapt depending on the face I’m working on.
I have also attended several bridal master classes with award winning Irish makeup artist Danielle Mahon and had a pleasure to assist Danielle in many weddings (which was unreal experience and work practice at the same time).
The most exciting thing that has happened to me since I’ve got into beauty industry was meeting the super famous fashion guru Gok Wan! I was so lucky to be picked as a makeup artist to work backstage with Gok Wan, Danielle Mahon and her team at his Fashion Shows in Dublin.
I’ve also had a pleasure to be a part of a team to work backstage with worlds most respected and sought after Australian Hairstylist Kevin Murphy at his hair show in Dublin.
Freelancing and participating in various projects/photoshoots have also given me the opportunity to meet so many talented photographers, hair stylists and fellow makeup artists. I have to say, I love working within a team and I never shy away from various collaborations with different professionals, so if you’re looking for a makeup artist for your team – I would gladly be a part of it.
I have not been in this industry for years and years, but I feel like I already have a great deal of experience, knowledge and professionalism to make YOU feel amazing on that special occasion.
If you like my work and want to make an appointment or just have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
