Lisa Cotterill

Prosthetics, Hair & Makeup Artist



Lisa is a professionally trained make-up artist, hairdresser and SPFX artist in the entertainment industry for over 21 years. She has worked in television, commercials, corporate videos, magazine editorials, films, portfolio shoots and private special occasion work. Her focus is on SPFX make-up: wounds, death, characters, creatures and prosthetics.

Her love of SPFX and product knowledge took her career on a diversion into science, completing her bachelor of science (forensic science) and bachelor of honours (science), which has enhanced her knowledge and understanding of cosmetic chemistry and product formulation.

Lisa has freelanced for Channel Nine, SBS and ABC, numerous commercials including Arnott’s Tim Tams, and Australia Day campaigns, as well as worked with a variety of celebrities such as Cate Blanchett and Derryn Hinch.

She has spent the past few years teaching all aspects of beauty, fashion and SPFX make-up as a Senior Educator at the largest make-up school in the world, as well as working in film – including her role as Head of Special Effects Makeup for the major motion picture “Wyrmwood”.
