I had an obsession with makeup from an early age. I would spend countless hours in front of the mirror practising different looks at every opportunity. There was more than one occasion during my teenage years where I was wearing far too much makeup to go just to the local supermarket. I LOVED experimenting with colour, texture and different techniques.
I love keeping up with the latest trends and the latest products in the market. Over my career I have been lucky to work alongside some amazing designers in Sydney Fashion week. This keeps my creativity current and expansive. Over the years I have been featured In Cosmopolitan Bride, Cosmopolitan Hair & Beauty, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar & the Sunday Telegraph.
I pay meticulous attention to detail and I am extremely passionate about getting the right eyebrow shape for each individual. I was fortunate to be taught by Bobbi Brown’s top brow stylist which provided me a wealth of training and experience. Then, working as Mac’s first Eyebrow Specialist soon earnt me a vast and loyal following. It provided me the opportunity to train the staff and help set up the brow styling counter at MAC in Melbourne.
I pride myself on the experience I create for my brides. From designing a look at the trial, to the correspondence and then to the big day. I want to be someone that you want as part of the process, I feel grateful to be there with you.
Areas of expertise
What I love about makeup artistry is that it can be anything you want it to be. Creatively it can be a fashion accessory, a mask or the main feature. For most of us, we use it to enhance our natural appearance on a day to day basis. It gives us confidence and the motivation to face any situation. Whether it be for a night out or for your wedding, I am available for special occasion makeup that will make you look and feel your absolute natural best.
My true passion and speciality is in Bridal Makeup. The preparation, planning and excitement all comes together and it has to be perfect. I love hearing all about the dress, flowers, styling, venue and I find that it helps me create a special look for each bride. I recommend we do a trial makeup session a few months before the wedding. Bring along some visual inspirations we can chat through. I will also assess your skin and talk about a skincare routine in the lead up to the big day. Flawless foundation happens with flawless skin first! I can make recommendations for hair styling, fake tanning, manicures etc.
Kat & Dean
One of the many things I loved about this wedding was the fact that Kat wanted a very individual look and it was so much fun creating a makeup that involved a dramatic lip. We included a few longer lashes on the outer corner of her eyes which gave them an almond shape and then we defined with a black gel liner.Read More
