Hilary was an absolute dream! She was so lovely when I met her for the trial and was really happy to listen to my opinions and thoughts on what I wanted. On the day she turned up early, was so professional, warm, and super easy-going which was exactly what I needed that morning! I loved my make up because what was most important to me was that I still looked like me. Thanks Hilary, I’ll be recommending you to all my engaged friends!

Jocelyn Tjandra (Bride)
Hilary Ho is absolutely amazing. She is a tremendous make up artist and I highly recommend her! I booked Hilary immediately after my trial make up for my wedding because of her talent and her professionalism! She was able to capture exactly what i was after and ensured that I was completely happy with the final work. And she did not disappoint, on the wedding day, she did a fabulous job as expected. Love your work Hilary and thanks so much for an amazing job!
Olivia Arezzolo (Model)
As a model for the past five years, I've experienced many make up artists - good, bad, and unspeakable!
Hilary's work is not only incredible, her conduct is professional, she has a can-do attitude and is a complete perfectionist - she ensures that each look is exactly what the client is looking for.
I found her blending techniques particularly impeccable, making the base of my skin look completely flawless. Her highlighting on my cheekbones and her eye make up was also very precise, clean and polished.
I would highly recommend her to any individual seeking an exceedingly talented make up artist. Further, she is an absolute pleasure to work alongside, with her friendly personality making her one of my favourite make up artists I have encountered to date.

Where to begin with Hilary... She is absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
I first met Hilary when I booked my makeup trial with her after numerous unhappy trials. As soon as she was done, I booked her that day for my wedding!
Poor Hilary had to start super early (4:30am) on my wedding day... she turned up on time, was highly professional, and such a pleasure to deal with. Her makeup application was absolutely flawless...
I have since booked Hilary again for other occasions, I don't think I could ever replace her. She is truly talented! :) Thanks Hilary!
Yvonne Lin (Bride)
Looking for a competent, trustworthy bridal make up artist is no easy task. In my case, the task was extra hard because I needed someone who could confidently pull off a "Bollywood" look on an Asian face without making me look like I was part of the cirque du soleil Trapeze team. Luckily for me, I found Hilary Ho.
I was first drawn to Hilary's work for magazines. Her work came through the camera beautifully and I thought she would be great to do my engagement shoot makeup. During our 2 hour trial and even though emails beforehand, Hilary took the time to understand my needs, listened to suggestions, asked for feedback and was open to trying different colours and shades. We tried both a natural look for the outdoor engagement shoot and a bolder Bollywood look for my Hindu wedding. Hilary's technique was professional, her brush strokes soft and gentle, sticking to all hygienic practices. My mother said it was like watching an artist painting a picture.
I ended up booking Hilary for both my engagement shoot makeup and hair and also my wedding day. Hilary was punctual, professional, personable and calm on both occasions. It is testament to her skills that my make up survived a 46 degree heatwave and a long wet wedding day. She also created a lovely look for my mother who never wears makeup. I have no reservations in recommending Hilary. Her products are high quality, her skills amazing, prices very affordable and she's just an all round lovely person to work with. Wishing you all the best for your own big day Hilary!!!
Betty Tang (Bride)
Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for making me and the bridesmaids look spectacular on my special day! I received an outpouring amount of compliments!! The makeup felt so light yet flawless and our eye lashes felt so comfortable! You are an amazing talent and we love your work! Thanks for also being so easy to deal with and extremely sweet, even in the smallest and darkest of rooms! Lol. I wish nothing but the best for you on Saturday! Remember to enjoy the day and it looks like it's going to be a great day!
Tom Tansey (Event Co-ordinator)
What can I say? Hilary, did such an amazing job on the make up team for the K25 float for the 2012 Sydney Mardi Gras Parade. With this float, celebrating 25 years of Kylie Minogue in the music industry, being the most high-profile float in this year’s Parade, it was vital that the make up was immaculate. And Hilary certainly delivered! Getting 25 drag queens ready in under 3 hours was no easy task but Hilary and her team worked so quickly and efficiently that we were ready with time to spare. Not only was Hilary a pleasure to work with on the day, but she was also a a huge help in recruiting the team of make up artists. I would highly recommend Hilary and will certainly be using her again for future projects.l
Alison Pisani (Bride)
I found Hilary through my friend who got married earlier than me. I couldn't help notice how beautiful her make up was and knew that when it was my turn I would go straight to Hilary! Hilary was so easy to deal with, which is exactly what you want when you are planning a wedding. She offered suggestions as well as listening to what look I had in mind. She is super talented, my makeup lasted all day and she was professional and fun. I will definitely be going back to Hil again!
Nancy Zhang (Client)
Hilary is truly an amazing makeup artist ! She is not only super professional, but she is also very friendly. Hilary did an amazing job for my 21st and she made me look/feel like a celebrity. Her work is immaculate as she pays a great deal of attention to the details of her work. I would recommend Hilary for events ranging from formals, birthdays and weddings as she is incredibly talented and versatile. I trust her work with great confidence and am looking forward to the next time I am in need of her artistic prowess !
Angela Yeow (Bride)
Thanks Hil for a smooth wedding makeup experience. I got so many compliments on the day as well as after the wedding from friends who couldn't make it that saw the photos. So it looked great both in person and on camera!
Robert Gadsbey (Actor)
Hilary provided special FX make up for our short 'super villain origin of' film, KILL SWITCH. I was co-producer and actor on the film and Hilary was able to work within an extremely tight shooting schedule to provide quality scar and bruised make up for my character. She normally enhances the natural beauty of others but for our film, she perfectly captured the aftermath of a violent ordeal that sets my character on a downward spiral. The film has played at several International Film Festivals and audience members have praised the realism of the make up. We needed a quality make up artist on set and Hilary exceeded our expectations. She is also the consummate professional: timeous, affable and she put myself at ease by talking through the application process. I'd definitely work with her again!
Ryan Pike (Fashion Photographer)
I've had the pleasure of working with Hilary on a number of fashion and editorial photo shoots. What can i say! She is incredibly talented, so great to work with. She has an unwavering positive can-do attitude and has always been extremely reliable and professional!
Liz Fong (Client)
Hilary is an amazing, personable and talented makeup artist, who helped me and my mum look our best for my brother's wedding in early January 2015. She came super early in the morning, with a smile on her face, ready to work her magic.
I usually don't like wearing makeup as it makes me feel like I'm wearing a mask, but Hilary made it so light and natural feeling, and it lasted the entire day, with just a minor lip touch up needed.
It was great to bounce ideas off her, get her expert opinion on what would work for me and the style I wanted to go for. (Loved the bright orange lippy!) She even gave excellent makeup tips too!
It was such an enjoyable experience, and I would definitely ask Hilary to do my make up for my own upcoming wedding!
Renata Zareba (Model)
I absolutely love working with Hilary, she is an incredibly skilled make up artist, who always makes her magic to make me look beautiful and natural in front of the camera. Apart from being an amazing make up artist, she always works with best team of photographers and stylists, so every single time I get the chance to work with her I am confident that I will get some stunning images for my model portfolio. She is also super easy and fun to work with. Without any doubts, Hilary is one of my favourite Sydney make up artists!
Alison Tate (Bride)
Hilary is an amazingly talented make up artist! She is such a delight to deal with and made my whole wedding experience a really relaxed one (in the makeup area :) ). We did one trial and I knew from that moment that she was the one that I would be using for the wedding. She really made an effort to make sure that I was happy with the makeup, listening very carefully to what I wanted and producing several stunning results which really showed how experienced she is. Actually it was hard to choose which style I wanted because each style was so amazing! She is a true professional in every sense of the word and I would definitely recommend her for any makeup requirements.
Trust me, you will save a lot of time and heartache if you go to Hilary Ho first!
Thank you so much Hilary, you really made my wedding day special.
Jessica Park (Bride)
Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did for my makeup on my wedding day. It was just what I wanted it, natural & elegant. It was perfect!
Thank you for making me look and feel like me!! You were a very calming influence, which was great to have there!!
I would recommend you to anyone.
Thanks again and all the best for the rest of the wedding season!
Kathy Luu (Film Producer/Director)
I have worked with many make-up artists in both film and photography and Hilary is by far one of the standouts/favorites I have worked with. Not only is she easy to work/communicate with and a beautiful presence to have on set, but her eye for detail and flair for creativity to the specific job is what makes her stand out.
Hilary was the head SFX make-up artist for our Zombie mockumentary, The Real Zombie Housewives. I really loved that we were able to discuss and bounce ideas about how our zombies should look, she suggested so many great ideas. On the day she did a brilliant job of transforming 3 women into zombies, giving each of them a unique feel to their decay. A big part of the success and comedy of this film was thanks to Hilary.
Thank you for giving so much on our film - I so appreciate you! I can't wait to work together again on our next film!
Vanessa Chow (Bride)
Hilary is such an amazing and talented make-up artist! She is super lovely and friendly and took her time to create a perfect engagement shoot and subsequent wedding day look. My make-up stayed on all day and looked flawless. My bridesmaids and mum looked stunning too!
She has a great eye for detail and is professional, warm and very easy-going. I would highly recommend her to all the lovely ladies out there for any and every occasion (:
Thank you so much Hilary - you definitely made my day super special (: x
Angela Lee (Bride)
Can I somehow like your page x1000? I'll never forget the look on Jeremy's face when he saw me for the first time today. You have some serious talent going on Hilary. Xx
Mandi Xu (Bride)
I want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did with my wedding makeup. For someone like me who don't normally wear make up, I love the products that you used because it didn't feel like I was wearing make up and you gave me the "natural" look that I was after. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.
Kelly Dunn (Bride)
THANK YOU HILARY! You did an amazing job with my make up on Saturday and I could not be happier! Will try and send you more photos when we get them :) x
Hazel Tate (Bridesmaid)
I met Hilary through my sister who was the bride. Hilary is truly a talented make-up artist. She is warm, welcoming and exceeded the bride and bridal party's expectations. We started make up at 9am and the wedding ended at midnight, when I looked in the mirror at the end of the night my make up was still flawless!
Hilary is a great make-up artist and overall great person.
I highly recommend Hilary whether it be for a wedding, special event or even for a night out!
Thank you Hilary x
Michelle Manio (Bride)
Hilary’s professionalism combined with her personable nature made the preparations for my wedding a breeze. I also loved that she used MAC products – working in the magazine industry, I know that high-quality products are a must. Hilary’s experience in the business allowed me to just sit back, relax, and know that I would look amazing on my big day – and she delivered!
Natalia Soares (Bride)
We are back from our honeymoon! And I would like to thank you so much for our beautiful make up! My make up lasted the whole day and it looked stunning! The bridesmaids also looked soooo beautiful! You were a pleasure to work with! I am sending a few photos, I will send more when I receive the photographer ones!
All the best to you,
