MY STYLE

I would say my makeup style is focused on creating a fresh and natural but flawless long lasting finish. I want you to be over the moon with your makeup, and like faces, no two brides or weddings are the same, so I’ll work with you during your makeup trial to create a look that will make you feel like an enhanced version of your natural self that will last you all day and night. Nothing makes me happier than the moment when someone looks in the mirror after having their makeup done and their faces light up with happiness with the final result.

We all know the bride is the focus of the day but I also specialise in makeup for Mums. As we age our concerns and makeup needs change. I often have mothers of the bride who are worried about redness, lines, hooded eyes and discolouration, just to name a few. I take great pride in creating a makeup look that combats any areas of concern and leaves them feeling fresh and beautiful.

I’m a self proclaimed product junkie so I make sure I’m always up to date with the trends and products from brands such as Chanel, Tom Ford, Laura Mercier, MAC, Make Up For Ever, IT Cosmetics, Too Faced, Hourglass and more. Every product in my kit has been tried, tested and hand selected by me so I have complete confidence in their finish and staying power. If you’re interested in seeing just how obsessed with makeup I am you can also check out my beauty blog and accompanying Instagram.

MY STORY & EXPERIENCE

After falling in love with all things makeup I decided I wanted to further my skills to help people feel more beautiful and confident through makeup.

I was lucky enough to be trained by the talented Susan Markovic (MAKEUP MODE) and learnt to specialise in the craft of bridal makeup by Tobi Henney, creative director and founder of THE BRIDAL MAKEUP CO. Through my time assisting Tobi I learnt not only how to create stunning bridal looks but how also to ensure a relaxed pre-wedding environment for brides to enjoy while they get pampered in the lead up to the main event.

I also have a professional background in television production, including live TV, so I am no stranger to deadlines, schedules and sometimes tense environments (not that there will be any tension in the makeup chair!). Over the years I’ve learnt how to get the job done happily even if tensions are running high.

I will provide you with a seamless, stress free makeup experience right from your first contact through to your big day or event!
