cempaka van der hulst bali best MUA make up artist

Growing up in a fashion obsessed environment has made Cempaka enjoy playing dress up with her cousins. Started out with mix and matching clothes from her mother’s closet to putting on some bold lipstick and eyeshadow to glam up the look.

From then on, Cempaka was dreaming of being a fashion model, which made her join a modelling school. But then it dawned on her that the the most enjoyable moment when becoming a fashion model is not when she’s on stage, but during the backstage prep. The madness backstage made Cempaka fall in love for makeup all over again as everyone must move quickly but still managed to have meticulously blended eyeshadow and perfectly winged liner.

Long story short, Cempaka moved to The Netherlands for a bachelor’s degree where she only came home once a year for a month. One summer holiday she took a makeup training at Make Up For Ever Academy in Jakarta.

Cempaka moved to Bali in 2017 as a professional make up artist where most of the clients are local Balinese bride as well as international ones. She also once joined Catleya’s team where she learned amazing insight into cosmetic tips and tricks in enhancing tanned skin’s natural glow.

In 2019, she formed her own glam squad starting out with four members and hoping to grow the number! Her mission is to encourage women to embrace their natural skin tone and celebrate differences!

Cempaka truly has magical hands that can help you create your desired look for your special occasions. She also ensures to keep the makeup in place all day as you dance the night away.
