Makeup Artist

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, fashion events, photo shoots and department stores Myer and David Jones.

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.

He takes the time to understand what you want and goes above and beyond to create a master piece. Simply brilliant and talented! Also, he suits the make up style to your face and colouring to create the perfect look for you and any occasion. I will be using him for all my makeup from now on and you should too.”

And no matter how long we work, we always have a lot of fun! Tiago is a very happy and easy person to work with.”

“I first hired Tiago to work alongside me in a busy 5* salon doing makeup for black tie events. From the first moment I spent with Tiago I felt an incredible uplifting, positive and motivating energy from him. To this day I still tell him that he is the happiest person I know. Not only has Tiago become one of my greatest friends, but he is also quite literally my right hand man in makeup. Tiago is the most reliable person I know and always delivers an impeccable standard of makeup, and service. He often works on television commercials for me if I am unavailable and the crew are incredibly satisfied with him each and every time. Tiago is an all round wonderful person.”

“Tiago, I can’t thank you enough for what you did for me on my wedding day. You truly are magic at what you do! My bridesmaids, my mum and myself were all so happy with our makeup and with your work. It was fresh, light, luminous and stayed on all day and night! And especially for me, you managed to create the exact look that I wanted. I couldn’t believe how amazing my makeup was. I received so many compliments throughout the day. Your positive energy and calm nature, made my day even more special. I think as a Bride it´s very important to have someone to make the day less stressful and more enjoyable. I really had an amazing day and I’m very glad for having you there to share this special moment with me. I can’t recommend you highly enough. Please keep doing what you do, you are an amazing person, and an excellent professional.”
Love, Silmara McClure
