Business Name: Makeup 4 Brides

What are your name/s and what do you do? How many years have you been in business?

My name is Erica Cecchin. I have been in the beauty industry for 5 years, specialising in makeup artistry. I own a franchise called Makeup 4 Brides on the Sunshine Coast which involves traveling all over the coast to do makeup for brides on their special day. I also run Buderim Beauty By Erica where I do medical microdermabrasion to address any skin concerns, spray tanning and nails for bridal parties. I love it!


Tell us about why you decided to do what you do?

I fell in love with making ladies feel even more beautiful than they already are. Be it a glamorous face of makeup, a natural spray tan, fresh nails or getting them on a personalised microdermabrasion skin perfection system…Making others feel good makes me feel good.


What do you love most about your business?

I love being creative and enhancing natural beauty. Making someone look and feel amazing is extremely for-filling for me. Not to mention, I absolutely love weddings and being able to contribute to so many special days!


What do you want people to remember about the service you provide?

I take pride in providing a professional yet relaxed service for the ‘getting ready’ part of a wedding day. I am passionate about makeup artistry and I am always more than happy to spend time to achieve the look that the bride is after… I just want them to be able to look back at wedding photos and feel happy, proud and confident of themselves how they looked.


Tell us about yourselves. What are your hobbies? What is one fun fact about you?

One hobby that tends to catch a few of guard is that I am also a keen motorcyclist enthusiast. On my days off and away from beauty, you will find me cruising the hinterland on my motorbike. One fun fact…I am one of 8 siblings.


If you could pick one word that describes you/your business, what would it be?

This is the hardest question! ‘Professional’ would be the one word to describe my businesses. I take a lot of pride in professionalism…


Share your favourite photo of you or your work?

Describe why this is your favourite? This is a photo of me and my work all in one.

What would be your top tip for new Brides and Grooms planning their big day?

Without getting too overwhelmed, do a little research. There are a lot of wedding suppliers on the Sunshine Coast, some more professional than others. (You can see our ‘preferred suppliers list’ on our website)
