Rani Shortland is an International Hair & Makeup Artist working in all genres of the industry including Bridal looks that are individual to you on your Wedding Day.

Rani has 9 years experience as a Hair & Makeup Artist. She trained in New York City and whilst living there, was lucky enough to work on such things as New York Fashion Week, Real Housewives of New York and be Head Makeup Artist for a Fashion Marketing brand.

Originally from NZ, she moved back there where her full time freelancing work included magazines such as celebrity shoots for ‘Woman’s Day’, ‘Bride & Groom’ magazine, and ‘Remix’ fashion Magazine.
She worked on many fashion campaigns, was Head Makeup Artist for the Vodafone Music Awards, and worked in TV, on such shows as ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘Real Housewives’.

Now based in Sydney she freelances for TV networks as well as photo shoots, events and weddings.

Whether you are after the natural dewy look, a boho style or a smokey eye, Rani can work with you to create the hair and makeup that works for you.

Rani has travelled to places such as Italy, New York, Rarotonga, Fiji, NZ, and of course Sydney and Byron Bay helping women look and feel amazing for their big day.

I was so lucky to come across Rani on Facebook when I was planning our wedding. We got married in Tuscany and my Italian wedding planner put me in touch with some hair and make-up artists that weren't suitable at all - I was looking for something light and natural and the Italian styles all seemed very heavy. Rani was my saviour... not only did she do a trial for me but she came to Italy! Luckily for me, she'd planned a trip to Europe and was kind and generous enough to offer to come to Tuscany for our big day to do my hair and make-up. When Rani arrived on the morning of our wedding I knew everything was going to be okay. She is a wonderfully talented make-up artist and hair stylist and is so warm and genuine. I was so happy and felt very lucky to have her look after me on the big day. My mum and bridesmaid also loved her and felt very relaxed - it was brilliant and we were all so happy with the result. I can't recommend Rani highly enough to any future bride

Rani made me feel so relaxed on my wedding day. She was punctual, calm and so organised. She was professional and thorough and her attention to detail was impeccable. I had 5 bridesmaids, including myself and my mother, and she managed her time so well and the makeup was perfect and lasted the entire day!. Being very particular with my makeup especially when it comes to creating the natural but bold look, I had put all my trust in her, and she exceeded my expectation. Rani is not just talented at what she does, she has a beautiful, friendly and warm personality that makes any bride feel relaxed on her big day.

Had Rani do my make up for my sister's wedding, since then I have had her do my make up for other events I have been to, EVERY time my make up is immaculate And she is always lovely and funny I can't rate her more highly. My go-to makeup artist!

I hired Rani to do the makeup for my bridesmaids as well as myself for our special wedding day in Byron Bay. She was very professional, passionate, well presented and with her charming sweet personality, she fit right in with my girls. I would highly recommend Rani for all your make up needs...she truly goes above and beyond.

Excellent with contouring my cheekbones and highlighting my eyes - both areas that I love getting made up specifically when I get my make up done professionally. Have done multiple "looks" with her now and each one has given me the wow factor. Easy to relax with, Rani was the consummate professional. Happy to recommend. You'll walk away a happy customer - she's worth every penny

Rani has the ability to anyone feel like a princess! She did my hair and make up for my wedding and I now recommend her to everyone who has a special occasion whether it's a birthday, wedding or other celebration and wants to look extra lovely. Her sense of fun and warm energy put me at ease and reassured me that it really was going to be the best day of my life!

Rani has done my hair and makeup a number of times and it is ALWAYS flawless. She manages to make me feel like a supermodel every time. I was lucky enough to have Rani as my makeup artist and hairdresser for my wedding in Rarotonga and was beyond happy with the result. Rani did an absolutely amazing job, everything about it was perfect which helped me have the absolute best day of my life. Rani has an amazing eye and listens to what YOU want and always manages to produce an amazing and on-trend look.
I could not recommend Rani and her work more highly she is the absolute best at what she does and has the most amazing soul and personality to match. Look no further as you've found your new makeup artist.

Rani has done some of the best work I have seen and experienced myself in the hair & beauty industry- I was so thrilled with my wedding, Rani was so professional and put me at ease on the day. Being a hairdresser myself I am very particular about stylists I refer, book and use personally. I can’t fault anything about Rani or her work and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a very high standard of work - from a wedding to an evening out her work is stunning. Friends and family that I have referred Rani to have also said how amazing she was and could not have been happier.
