Ashlee Whipps is one of the local makeup artists here in Southland and she is bloody passionate about what she does. If you follow her Instagram, you know that she knows her craft inside and out!
I have worked alongside Ashlee a few times and I can't recommend her high enough!
You need make up for your next big event, she's got you.
You need make up advice, she's ya therapist.
You need tips on that contour line, hit her up.
(Disclaimer - I don't know what a 'contour line' is)

As we take part in world wide pandemic, I know for my brides it is a super stressful and crazy time. I have gone from being almost fully booked right up until my due date to having lost 90% of my work. For me now being 6 months pregnant I’m thankful I will be at home where I can focus on keeping safe, although (let’s keep it real) it is super stressful loosing your income with a baby on the way. SO, for my brides, I want your wedding to happen as much as you do so rather than cancelling I urge you to postpone. I will be having a a baby amongst all this madness but the show must go on and I, more than anything still want to be a part of that!
So unfortunate that this has happened, hopefully things start looking up and we get a new date soon 🤞🏻
Attention Central Southland Ball ladies!
So sorry your ball has been postponed!
We will transfer all your hair appointments over to the new date when we find out when it is, and we will keep you posted with the makeup appointments as this will depend on the availability of our makeup artists.
As you know these things are out of everybody’s control!
Covid 19 Update : Hi everyone, with the increase of cases I thought now would be a good time to give a little update regarding where my head is at with it all.
Unfortunately i will not be able to work on anyone who has been outside of the country within 14 days of their appointment or is unwell, with me being pregnant and having my family to worry about. I am around so many people weekly it is just too risky and I would hate to contribute to the spread of this. If you can provide medical clearance from your doctor then obviously I am happy to then carry out the job if it is safe to do so.
It is essential we all do our part as this is now far more serious than I think most of us actually realised, with more cases being confirmed throughout NZ.
Sorry if this causes any inconvenience, feel free to flick me a message if you have any concerns.
@caitlinblackley making my job super easy with her gorgeous self! We went for a soft and dewy look, accentuating her beautiful natural lashes with individuals to top it off.
Loooooved doing the Makeup for Alex, a dear friend from back in Central Southland College days. How stunning is she and her bridal crew (the lads scrubbed up pretty well to). 💕
No words are going to do justice to describe how beautiful & love-filled Pete and Alex's River Ridge wedding was!
The weather was a stunner, the light was gorgeous for portraits, Alex's wedding vision came together so wonderfully. Photographing these two was a dream, as I knew it would be and we had such an adventure for their portrait time. Congratulations friends - we loved having the honour of capturing your magical first day as husband and wife, and we loved getting to celebrate with you!
Still lusting over last seasons brides @kirstygibbens

When Tessa asked my thoughts on either a nude lip or a red lip I instantly said RED! How amazing does the pop of colour look with her bouquet 😍❤️!?

Another weekend full of beautiful souls and beautiful faces!
I have been wanting a dried floral arrangement to dress up my work space for the longest time! @bella_and_ruby_bespoke has answered my floral dreams with this insane bouquet from yesterday’s shoot and she is now sitting pretty in my beauty room 😍
