About Me

I studied make-up, hair and special effects and have been freelancing for 12 years, of which the last 6 have included costume for mainly TV commercials and period re-enactments for documentaries as well as make-up and hair for photographic work.

I am experienced in costume, make-up, hair, wigs and make-up special effects. I am happy working in make-up or wardrobe as separate departments or within one role as costume/make-up combo.

I am consistently adapting my ideas and personal style to each individual brief and budget. I am hardworking, detail conscious and driven to produce the best work I possibly can, whether I am working on my own or within a team environment.




“I have had the absolute pleasure of working alongside Miranda for the last five years. In that time we have developed and produced two full docu-drama TV series for TVNZ. These were very involved shows and our make-up and wardrobe had to be spot on. I had worked with Miranda Raman on TVCs before and I knew that her passion and attention to detail would be very beneficial for both my own vision and the series as a whole. I was right. She has her own strong vision and works exceptionally well with a team. The series would not have been the success it was without her. Miranda has a great team that works with her and her vibrancy and enthusiasm on set is brilliant. I can’t speak highly enough of her and her ability to help those who she works with reach their ambitious vision.”

“I have worked with Miranda Raman over the past 6 years and have been consistently impressed by her professionalism and commitment to each make-up or stylist job she undertakes. In the world of film and TV, projects require an ability to balance the client’s expectations, the director’s vision, and the production team’s budget under tight deadlines. As a production manager I have every confidence that Miranda will deliver on all of these aspects and ensure everyone is happy with the outcome. Future employers should feel that they are in good hands when working with Miranda on any project, big or small.”
Claire Campbell, Production Manager

“Miranda Raman is an extremely talented, creative, passionate and professional make-up artist. I’ve worked with her on numerous photo shoots for a wide variety of clients and she has always delivered outstanding quality and service.”
