Kennedy you absolute beauty 💕

With the devastating acts that took place on Friday this is a reminder that it is still okay to proceed with everyday life. To not be scared by one mans disgusting hate crime and for this to be a lesson to all our tamariki that WE ARE THE CHANGE. Educate our children to give love to our brothers and sisters because THEY ARE US. I hope everyone has a safe and happy week and please remember to be kind to one another. 💕.

I bet you wish you could be fussed over this much every day @emma_norman__ 😍

It wasn’t that long ago I had this beauty in my seat getting glammed for her engagement shoot and today we did it all over again so she can marry her love after 8 years of being together! I am already on the edge of my seat waiting to see the photos 😍 #MrandMrsGavin

Makeup all done on Katelin for her engagement shoot.

Next step.. THE WEDDING 😍

On Tuesday night Matt and I headed up the road to Mavora to meet with Aaron & Katelin for their engagement session. I hadn't been to Mavora for years and it is an absolute treasure trove for photos!!!

We so enjoyed our time hanging out with these lovebirds. Photographing Aaron & Katelin was a dream - they were totally laidback & laughed their way through the whole shoot. Here's a wee preview of what we created...

Taking a look back at the beautiful job Cam from We The Collective did for our styled shoot with Southland Wedding Collective. I highly recommend getting Cam onboard if you have a wedding coming up. I still get goosebumps over this and it wasn’t even a real wedding 😱!

As a Makeup Artist I get to meet some pretty dope people and one of those people is Brogan, the face behind @kiwicaptures . On Monday night I had Brogan slide into my DM’s asking if I could glam her model for a shoot the next day. Obviously I said YAAAAS. Brogan had a vision and put her vision together literally in 24hours! Make sure you go and check her work out because she is one talented lady!

Can we also appreciate the gown. It came all the way from the Ukraine and I am OBSESSED 😍✨

I was feeling inspired after having a major stalk of @makeupwithjah page and decided to give a full glam look a go. I take my hat off to her because she made it look soooo much easier than what ever I was doing 😂 #dontaskforthislookeverthanks

I had Riley back in my chair for her shoot with @awhinafineart last night. Riley is what you hope to look like after you’ve edited the hell out of your picture - she blows my mind 🤯😍


BEYOND excited to have helped these girls reach an 11/10, so I’m just going to leave this here for everyone to lust over and for preparation in showing you how Insane the bride of this group looks!


If you’re planning your big day or even an event, booking ahead of time is essential. I hate to disappoint anyone when I have to tell them that I’m not available. My 2019 Calender is looking nice and full already.

I am taking bookings for 2020 and to give you a rough idea I have marked out my two busiest months for weddings with a ❤️ if that morning has already been booked.

Tag any brides to be that you think might like to book with me for their big day ✨💍💋

Highly recommend this product to all those up and coming brides to get your hair, skin and nails prepped for your big day!!

✨MY @qt.foryou JOURNEY✨

Here is a raw beginning to end story of my journey with Qt (it has a happy ending 😉). The pictures speak for themselves really!! As you may have heard me say before how “shook” I was when I looked at the before and afters, even just after 2 weeks I was literally like is this real life because that sh*t is insane! The first thing I noticed was how much brighter my skin was then it slowly started to clear, even my fine lines and pigmentation started minimising. I wish soooo badly that I took before and after pics of my hair because this was another HUGE difference I’ve had whilst using Belle, my hair hasn’t grown this much since I was pregnant. Not to mention the growth of my nails, the fullness in my lashes, I have even noticed my cellulite is vanishing!! This truly is magic and I would now be lost without it. With using Belle I have still kept up a strict skincare regime as I do still get breakouts, I have never in my teenage/adult life had completely clear skin. My diet isn’t the best and that normally shows through my skin also, so by taking an internal cosmetic it truly has done me wonders!

Now you can see why I’m always promoting this product - it’s the bees knees team!! You can use CODE: ASHLEE for 25%
Thank me later 😘
