Film & TV - Hair & Make-Up Artist

Amanda Ross-McDonald

After studying theatre, I fell into the film industry at the age of 20. I instantly fell in love and couldn’t learn enough. After apprenticing in several designations on a local drama, I settled into hair and makeup.

Over the years I have grown in my experience as a makeup artist! I love working through a script and working with the director and the actor to find the right look for a character. I thrive on running a team and keeping my make-up ship running harmoniously as well as in a very organised manner. I enjoy being pushed creatively. And I love a challenge. I am a strong leader who loves clear and open communication.

Below you will find a selection of my most recent projects and many more from over the years.
