ABOUT MASTER MAKEUP BY DEAN NIXON
Master Makeup By Dean Nixon is the brainchild of celebrity make-up artist Dean Nixon.
With over 15 years in the fashion and cosmetic industries, Dean has worked all around the globe and has been the makeup director for the shows of world-leading hair brands Redken, Matrix, Kerastase and L’Oreal Professionnel. Dean has also directed many local and international fashion shows for Gucci, Sass and Bide, Willow, and for the large Australian store groups David Jones and Myer.
Working with a celebrity clientele (Elizabeth Hurley, Delta Goodrem, Kristy Hinze, Miranda Kerr, Megan Gale, Carolyn Murphy) and a mix of local celebrities such as Lauren Phillips, Jesinta Campbell, Jo Stanley, Jessica Mc Namee and Magda Szbanski, Dean saw a need for a simple “hands on” makeup master class – a class wherein women could learn how to do their own makeup - perfectly and professionally, every time.
After establishing Master Makeup in 2008 - a makeup master class business directed to the “every day woman” - Dean started to see a pattern in his classes where it was often not what was in a woman’s cosmetic purse that was the problem, nor her skill, but what was missing – the tools of the trade. Often, Dean found that women lacked good quality brushes.
Dean had always dreamed of creating his own makeup range of products and so it was only a matter of time before he set his mind to making this dream a reality - armed with the belief that a good quality product did not have to be expensive, nor complicated, Dean set out to realise his dream.
Two years on and Dean’s dream has become a reality, with the launch of his first product range under his brand - Master Makeup By Dean Nixon. Dean started with looking carefully at the all important “tools” and so created a simple range of six quality brushes and a brush wallet. Dean feels these few tools are all a woman needs to apply all her makeup perfectly and professionally - every time.
Dean’s dream doesn’t end here. He is currently working on developing a full range of “basics” or as Dean calls them “the one-stop-shop for a woman to visit for all her basic cosmetic products”. Coupled with his master class business, Dean plans to work to simplify the way a woman approaches her makeup application, while staying true to his commitment to create high-end quality products at an affordable price.
