Your face is my face, your eyes are my eyes, so I promise to treat it with the upmost respect.

Hary May


Hi all, my name is Hary May. I'm a Melbourne based Freelance Hair & Makeup Artist with passion and creativity for making faces. With over 15 years experience I started an early career within the Beauty industry. I am also qualified as a Trainer & Assessor in Beauty and Makeup at Diploma level.

I would like to tell you a little bit about what makeup means to me. Makeup is an expression of beauty, a love for life, love for oneself and stature. Colour can have a connection to the heart and can not only make you look good but also feel good which in turn can affect others around you.

When I was a little girl my mother made my sister and I paint her nails every week. She showed us the nature of looking after yourself not just for vanity but because it was a tradition and a way of having time to spend as girls. That time was empowering, for we spoke of things we did not speak about around others. This tradition is still carried out to this day.

Now every time I perform a service from painting nails to painting faces I think of those times and try to share and recreate these moments with each and every individual I come across. These special moments help begin a new day whether it be for a beautiful bride, an actor/actress going on screen or even a model gracing the camera and catwalk I want it to mean something special.
