Tasleema started her makeup artist career in 1997 in Sydney, Australia after completing a certificate in Makeup Artistry at one of Sydney's top makeup colleges. After completing her training she travelled to Canada to live working alongside some of the industry's best makeup artists to learn and develop her now signature looks.
One of Tasleema's greatest makeup artist mentors works alongside renowned makeup artist, Dick Page, on New York Fashion Week runway collection shows for Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs. Other makeup artists Tasleema has assisted while in Canada include those working with the likes of supermodels Daria Werbowy, Jessica Stam, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss and Sharlom Harlow. Working alongside these industry peers has given Tasleema the skills and industry experience that only comes from watching and learning from the best.
Tasleema returned to Australia in 2007 after living and working in Toronto Canada for six years in the fashion, advertising and wedding industries. Always up for a new challenge and a change of scenery, in 2011 Tasleema relocated from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. Tasleema is now busy helping local and interstate brides look beautiful on their wedding day. There is something very special about helping a bride get ready on one of the most important days in their lives - it's an absolute pleasure and honour to be involved in a couple's wedding day!
Tasleema's work has been seen in many fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazines and in advertising campaigns for major international brands in Australia, USA and Canada. Selected to work backstage as makeup artist to models at numerous fashion shows including the famous David Jones and Myer annual fashion parades and Canada's Loreal Paris Fashion Week. Tasleema has also worked for Estee Lauder Companies for many years as a National Makeup Artist helping women of all ages, ethnicities and skin conditions look beautiful, further adding to her versatility and experience as a professional makeup artist.
A few of Tasleema's favourite things include simple living, yoga, healthy eating, cooking, fitness, her two little Jack Russell Terriers, and of course makeup and lashes!
