Welcome to Makeup Utopia, a place for lovers of the art of makeup. Makeup Utopia is dedicated to the pursuit of the perfect makeup, and you can expect to find inspiration, tips and tricks to help you make the most of your makeup.
I’m Sara-May and I am the driving force behind Makeup Utopia. From the very first time I was asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” my response remained the same – a Makeup Artist.
I feel incredibly lucky to be able to say that I achieved that goal, becoming a well-known and highly sought after Makeup Artist for weddings in the beautiful Blue Mountains of Western Sydney, and servicing the East coast of Australia.
As a Makeup Artist, I constantly found myself being asked for product recommendations and advice on makeup application. Through my desire to share my knowledge, Makeup Utopia was born.
In August of 2014, I relocated from the Blue Mountains of Australia to Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Packing up my whole life to move quite literally to the other side of the world really alerted me to the problems associated with having a large “collection” of makeup. I no longer class myself as a collector of makeup, nor do I justify keeping makeup products I don’t love or use by classing it as my “beauty closet”. I’ve kept only the products I love, and I aspire to continue to downsize my personal makeup kit, and as I am no longer working as a makeup artist, I no longer maintain a large professional kit.
Choosing to live minimally in all aspects of my life has become incredibly important to me, and moving forward, you can expect to see Makeup Utopia evolve and change in line with this. Where will we end up? Not even I know that, but I can tell you, there’ll be more of a focus on creating looks and exploring makeup techniques, and less of a focus on products.
