004: Gabrielle Houghton
Freelance Makeup Artist Gabrielle Houghton knows what it means to hustle!
Just a few years after moving home to Hamilton and going freelance, she has helped to *create* a niche market for luxe event makeup in the Waikato.
Gabby's impeccable makeup artistry skills, her business savvy and her dedication to advancing the industry have also enabled her freelance business to grow to include her own online makeup store, Gabrielle Houghton merchandise, personal shopping services, artist-to-artist trainings, masterclasses, as well as a team of artists who work for weddings and events under the Gabrielle Houghton brand.
