Brazilian born Tiago Ronones has been working as a makeup artist since 2010. Following his training and working freelance, he was discovered by the team at the largest Brazilian TV channel, TV Globo. In between his busy schedule on set, Tiago’s talent was high-in- demand for work with photographic studios, theatre companies, fashion shows, weddings and more.
Since moving to Sydney in 2016 and providing private makeup services, Tiago’s talent has already been recognised, having been invited to work for music videos, TV commercials, product launches and department stores Myer and David Jones as well as forming partnerships with Emily-Rose Braithwaite for Niche and the team at Hair@Wentworth.
Regarded as a consummate professional by industry peers and his regular clients alike, Tiago also appreciates a good conversation and enjoying the time with those seated in front of him.
His naturally effervescent demeanour and warm, gentle manner enable him to deliver highly personalised service. Tiago listens to his client’s needs, desires and what inspires them whilst using his knowledge and technical skills to enhance ideas and create the most ideal and unique looks to suit each individual.
Tiago is deeply committed to making his clients satisfied beyond doubt and exceed all expectations. Observing eyes light-up, faces that radiate and a big smile as clients look at themselves in front of the mirror is worth more than words and he works really hard to give clients the best outcome, paying careful attention at each step in the process of doing makeup.
Tiago offers not just a simple makeup service; instead, he creates quality, elegant and defining looks, transforming his client’s dreams into reality and generating lasting memories.
From actors to film directors, singers and bands to painters, photographers and stylists, Tiago’s influences and interests include the creations and artistry of Steven Klein, David LaChapelle, Mario Testino, Cate Blanchett, Madonna, Frida Kahlo, David Bowie and Stanley Kubrick. He is often flirting with different people’s work, including Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Gisele Bundchen, Fernanda Montenegro, Rita Lee, Donatella Versace, Pedro Almodóvar, Marília Pêra and Björk amongst others, being his fountain of inspiration and reference.
