Tam is a freelance makeup artist based in Melbourne, Australia.

Tamara Puni

Her love for colours and making things beautiful developed in her early childhood whilst residing in her homeland, Samoa. A country that is known as ‘The Pearl of the Pacific’ for its pristine, picture-perfect environment and natural surroundings.

Being surrounded and exposed to such exquisite natural beauty all her life contributed to Tamara’s artistic eye for elegance, simplicity and uniqueness. It developed her love affair and natural talent for makeup artistry. However, it took a career change to realised her ‘first love’ can be a career aspiration – the birth of Quintessential Makeup!

“Quintessential means representing the most perfect… typical example of a quality or class. I believe Makeup is ART! You are my Canvas! And it’s simply Enhancing, Expressing and Empowering the WOMAN that you are.” My ultimate goal for Quintessential Makeup’s clients is creating a balance of your inner confidence and outer beauty in a fun and professional environment with an exceptional personalised experience.
