Emma McGill

Stars of The Highlands 2022

Owner I Emma McGill Makeup Artist

Emma is a lover of all things makeup and hair and turned this passion into a career, running her own business – Emma McGill Makeup Artist. She fell into her job after discovering her love for it in high school and she has been in the industry ever since. Every day is different and when she isn’t working, she spends her time with her family.


Emma is setting aside her brushes and stepping onto the Stars stage to dance for a cancer free future. While she does not have any professional dance experience and is a bit nervous, she adores dance and is excited to give it a go and have some fun.  She may be used to contouring a face, but let’s watch her conquer this challenge and set the stage a light!


Woo! Go Emma!


Dance Partner

Kate and Emma's fundraising dinner at the Shaggy Cow

Things are heating up!

Ok... So I've a funny snippet from rehearsals today, involving a chair and near fall but not tech savvy so could only share to my Facebook stories. 
Good giggle if nothing else. 
Yes chairs will feature in our dance! 
And a few kicks (low for me ;) ) and a whole lot of cheeky fun. 

Totally blown away by everyone's support, kind words and donations including some amazing prizes for the silent auction. 

Still a way away from my $5k target so please donate and share with your friends and family. 

#danceforcancer #starsofthehighlands #cancercouncilnsw are the tags to search on Facebook for lots of fun posts from all the stars.

So blessed to be partnered with the gorgeous Siobhan. Owner of Industry Dance Co Tahmoor and Goulburn. Super pumped as we've been given burlesque! Woohoo!!! Any song suggestions?

It's time to begin!

So excited, nervous and extremely grateful to be a star this year!!!
Excited for Tuesday's official launch and cannot wait to meet all the other amazing stars for this year. 
Nervous as I haven't danced since I was still in school.... 15yrs ago and have since had two children too, but hey!
I am just so excited to spread the word have a lot of fun and help raise funds to stop the suffering of cancer patients and the long felt pain of their families if they pass away from this cruel disease. 
Hoping to make my family proud!
