FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would you describe your makeup style?
I love creating makeup looks that are modern and fresh. Skin should look and feel like skin. No matter how much needs to be covered, I can create a flawless base that does not require layers upon layers of makeup. Along with creating natural-looking, flawless skin, I love adding glow in all the right places, creating full, fluttery lashes and making each person that sits in my chair feel fantastic.
Will my makeup last all day and night?
On your wedding day, you will be having such a wonderful time, that you will want to keep makeup touch-ups to an absolute minimum. This is why I use tried and tested techniques and products that will ensure makeup will look just as great when it is first applied as it does at the end of the night.
Where are you based?
I am based just minutes from Melbourne's Yarra Valley, and can travel all over Victoria.
Do you offer trials?
Absolutely! I conduct trials from my home studio, or I can also come to at an additional cost for travel. Trials are mostly conducted on weekdays, though some weekend dates become available during the off-peak season.

Will you travel to me on my wedding day?
On your wedding day I will come to you, wherever you are getting ready, so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy being pampered with your very best friends by your side. More information, including a wedding schedule will be emailed to you when you book.
Do you offer hairstyling?
I don’t currently offer hairstyling services for weddings. However, I can recommend amazing hairstylists that I work with regularly who love effortless beauty as much as I do.
