I am a diploma qualified makeup artist and hairstylist with over 5 years wedding experience. With over a hundred weddings under my belt, I  have learnt to work with my brides to offer a personalised service that suits their needs and brings out their best, without masking or overshadowing their natural beauty. I work closely with my brides to tailor a look that suits their skin type, and their personal style. As I own and operate my business you know when you book Ellen Munro, that is who you will receive on the day.

Offering hand-brushed traditional and airbrush makeup services, I can achieve anything from a natural look to heavy glamour. I work with all skin types and mix and blend products to create custom formulations suitable for all skin tones. Having worked with a number of hair types means I can create the perfect up do or down style to complete your look. Being a curly girl myself I especially enjoy working with natural curls, but am also confident working with wavy, straight, thin, and thick hair.  Check out my previous work or get in touch to see how we can work together to achieve your dream look.


Service Areas

I offer a fully mobile service and can travel to you for trials and bookings. Based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, I am perfectly situated to travel throughout the Southeast Queensland. I regularly service areas including Noosa, Montville, Maleny, Glasshouse Mountains, Caloundra, and other Sunshine Coast and Hinterland locations. I also travel to Brisbane, Toowoomba, Laidley, Mount Tamborine and the Gold Coast. I am available for destination weddings and locations further afield on request.

Products and brands

At Ellen Munro Makeup I don’t believe in using any particular brand exclusively. Instead I prefer to use only high quality professional products to achieve the best results. I have personally tried and tested all products in my kit and can assure long lasting results. The collection includes Cinema Secrets, Face Atelier, Elementwo, Too Faced, Viseart, Modelrock, Hourglass and Mac products. As well as high quality skin care products such as Bioderma and Embryolisse.  Although my kit is not currently entirely cruelty free, I do stock a wide range of cruelty free and vegan products and brushes and am able to customise a kit that utilises only these products.


When I’m not helping people feel beautiful, My husband Chris and I spend our time trying to keep two small humans alive. Our daughter, Abigail, and son, Elias. We also have two giant furbabies, Jack and Martha. They’re Great Danes who think they’re chihuahas. Be warned, I do come equipped with a phone full of photos, and I have been known to use it!

Growing up I was a drama queen, in every sense of the word. I pursued makeup as a way to enter the theatre world, having a strong interest in stage makeup and wig making. However, not long after completing my diploma I had my first bridal client, and that was that. I discovered I loved bridal work more than I could have anticipated. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday than with a  group of ladies as the excitedly prep for the they’ve spent months, or years, planning. If there happens to be a terrible 90’s playlist, than so be it!


Ellen was fantastic.. The best hair and make up experience I have ever had..and I can speak the same for the other 4 ladies.. We all looked amazing in our photo’s.. She is absolutely an artist.. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Ellen.

Ellen is very easy to deal with and works with you to make sure that she gets your look just right. Her pricing is very reasonable and she has a lovely calming presence (very important on your big day!).
