Elsa Morgan continues to seamlessly mesh her internationally trained makeup expertise with her local, editorial and advertising clients.
Born in Sydney, Elsa’s extensive makeup career was launched in Los Angeles where she carved a name for herself within the industry. From there, Paris beckoned, soon becoming a second home for the fluent French-speaking artist. Backstage collaborations with the likes of Pat McGrath, Lucia Pieroni, Karim Rahman, Ashley Ward and Charlotte Tilbury saw Elsa rise amidst the ranks of ex-pat creatives, and catch the eye of global brands including Revlon and L’Oreal – the latter with whom she enjoyed a successful relationship as their Australian Makeup Director.
Upon returning to Australia, Elsa has since created some of the countries most refreshing covers and editorial shoots with Vogue, Elle and Harpers Bazaar, as well as catwalk makeup direction for Sydney Fashion Week and Melbourne Fashion Festival.
Elsa’s absolute professionalism and intimate understanding of each complexion as it evolves into her canvas, has seen her entrusted with celebrities including Victoria’s Secret superstars: Barbara Palvin, Fernanda Motta, Jessica Gomes, Bridget Malcom, Shanina Shaik, Ming Xi and Ashley Hart, as well as Top Model Montana Cox, and Australia’s Danni Minogue, Gracie Otto, Alli Simpson, Megan Gale, Tina Arena and Elyse Taylor to name a few.
Currently based in beachside Sydney with her family, Elsa regularly travels to Paris for couture and ready-to-wear bookings and due to her outstanding ethic and international refinement of skill and artistry is also in high-demand to speak on all things makeup trends and technique.
