Michelle Raasch


Michelle has always had a love for fine art since a very young age. Naturally bringing elements of creativity into her everyday life.

She graduated in Fashion Design from Nottingham Trent University in 2004,  where she spent the next 8 years working in the manufacturing sector with leading name brands in South Africa.

After relocating to New Zealand in 2013 with her husband and two kids, she followed her passion and creativity for Makeup and Art and studied the Full time Diploma course at Kristen Stewart School of Makeup in 2015.

Kristen has a huge network of connections in the Industry and often sends student out for work experience. Never turning down any opportunity that came her way, Michelle has had the opportunity to work in Photographic, Fashion, TV, Theatre and is now confident in creating a diversity of looks.

Shortly after graduating Michelle was given the opportunity to come on board as a relief tutor at the school, still giving her the flexibility to freelance and be a stay at home mum of two. During this time it has allowed her to further gain experience and skills.

In July 2016 Kristen has asked Michelle if she would like to start tutoring her own Part Time Diploma Course, and now she will be running both Part Time Courses that run yearly.
