MIA CONNOR

“Make your passion your profession and you will never work a day in your life”

Mia Connor has always had a love affair with art and her creative flare was apparent at quite a young age.  Always with a pencil in her hand, drawing at every opportunity, Mia wanted to be an artist when she grew up.

Leaving her dream for some time, believing it to be an impossibly hard career path, she later stumbled into a different art form – the world of makeup – and totally by accident.

“The first makeup course I did was merely to learn how to do my own makeup.  I never thought in a million years I would be doing makeup for a living!” Mia says.

In 2003 Mia booked her first makeup course with Napoleon in Sydney and then in 2005 she decided to chase her dreams and moved interstate to the Gold Coast to study under Peter Frampton where she completed her diploma with him.  “I worked at MAC briefly and freelanced until I got busy enough to move on to my next venture – The Makeup Bar. I wanted to have a professional base to work from, instead of my home, or someone else’s, so in 2007 I opened my own studio, The Makeup Bar!”

In the past two years Mia has added “Educator” to her resume and travels interstate at least every fortnight to a new venue around Australia to run her Masterclasses – “Beautiful Brides” and “Smoke Bomb Eyes”.  “Over the last couple of years I have trained hundreds of artists and have even had a couple of international artists travel to Australia to do my classes. I find educating extremely rewarding and see it as doing my bit to give back to the industry to make it stronger and generally creating better artists, which benefits everyone.  There’s no better feeling when your artists have that light bulb moment when what you are teaching them sinks in and they master it.”

On 23 August 2015, Mia took out the title of Makeup Artist of the Year for The Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA) which as been her biggest achievement to date.
