About Mary Calandro

I am an professional makeup artist with over 20 years industry experience and a wealth of experience and qualifications behind me. I pride myself on attention to detail and creativity.

I enjoy my work and I enjoy creating different looks. I really love “making up faces”. It’s not just a job, it’s about working with people in a team environment, learning from each other and creating a look that projects the desired image.

My diverse portfolio includes; television, film, stage, fashion parades/catwalks, publications, colour and black & white photography. My fashion and editorial work has also appeared in many local and interstate magazines such as Sports Illustrated, The Brides Diary, The Adelaide Wedding Pages, Womans Day, The Australian Womans Weekly, New Idea, and The Advertiser Sunday Mail.

I have also been involved in many events such as Goldwell Hair and Beauty Shows, Keune Australia Photo Shoot, David Jones Australian Designer Fashion Parades, City Musters Concert, Opening Ceremony to The World Police and Fire Games as well as providing my services to the Adelaide leg of the 2008 Andre Rieu Tour in Adelaide.

“A professional fabulous makeup artist in Adelaide. Her work is world renowned. As a former model for Versace, I have modelled in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur and I have had my makeup done by many overseas makeup artists but Mary’s is the best in the world. I highly recommend Mary not only because of her work but for the fact that she ‘s a lovely person and wonderful to deal with. I use Mary Calandro Makeup whenever I need makeup done.”
Olga, Model
