About The Speaker

Chereine Waddell

"There is a distinct aura to her artistry. Her technical execution is flawless, her creativity just magical” - Val Garland Rapidly developing a reputation for genuine artistic originality delivered with inimitable personal quirk, Chereine Waddell was voted Make-Up Artist of the Year at the 2016 Australian Hair Fashion Awards, being placed number one on the judge’s scorecard of none other than global industry icon Val Garland. With a strong background in fashion, fine arts and SFX it was Chereine’s innate understanding and appreciation for colour, design and technique that initially drove her into a career in makeup. Now, with a very holistic approach to her craft, Chereine oscillates fluidly between commercial and creative editorial work, working alongside esteemed Hair, Fashion and Beauty photographers. A strong advocate for knowledge & sharing, teaching has always played an important part in Chereine’s values & vocational path. An 8-year tenure across various private and public makeup colleges, Chereine has mentored many aspiring artists on their journey to success. She continues to take on the role of Make Up Educator charged with the cultivation of the next gen when not on set. Her role as beauty editor since 2017 for Australian hair fashion and beauty magazine Laud, embraces her creative curiosities & love for industry in her ability to orchestrate unique editorials, interviews & product shoots. Chereine’s passion for creating community and conversions between the fine art and fashion world is what sets her portfolio apart. She thrives on cross pollinating multidisciplinary skills to create unique imagery that tells a story and evokes emotion. Challenging artistic boundaries with efficiency, skill and balance, Chereine inspires and excites the senses by enhancing beauty in its many forms, the boundaries of imagination the only ceiling to her creative thought processes. While her signature looks are bold and sometimes daring, her ability to simultaneously create stunningly fresh and flawless faces positions her at the forefront of beauty shoot appointments and eagerly engaged by photographers who insist on complexion perfection. Spirited and youthful, yet consummately professional Chereine works tirelessly on set whilst invoking a real sense of calm amongst the broader creative team. In 2020 this talented MUA is set to launch her first book entitled Beyond the Face, a visual memoir inspired by her childhood. Chereine is based in Sydney, where she shares her life with her photographer husband Jarred Stedman and their pug Popsicle.
