I love doing wedding makeup, there is something so special about being part of someone's big day! Britney was one of the most relaxed brides and I had the best morning helping her and her beautiful bridesmaids get ready for her big day!

Tools of the trade! I swear I try to keep things tidy when I am on the job but it always ends up looking like this πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

DID YOU KNOW. My best mate is also an amazing makeup artist? And her beautiful face makes for the best canvas. Makeup for @ashleew_mua by me, and makeup for me by Ash 😘

I desperately need to up my game in the social media department! Having primarily worked in film and TV I'm so bad at remembering to take photos of my work and constantly forget to upload images. Flash back to my beautiful friends @ericaberica5 wedding last year, with hair and makeup done for both my bestie @roseytravels and I by me πŸ’žπŸ’ž

Had the pleasure last weekend of making up the faces of both Brydon and Julia for the young farmers ball ❀️

Last year my gorgeous friend @ericaberica5 got married, not only did I get to watch her marry the love of her life, but I also got to do hers and her bridesmaids makeup and some hair! It's always so special making someone look and feel like a bride, but even more special when it's your mate ❀️ @ Devonport, New Zealand

Last weekend I celebrated one of my gorgeous friends getting married, at her hens do! I went for a smokey under eye and bronzed tones on my lid, peach blush and lots of bronzer! Love this look ❀️

I have always been a fan of coloured eyeliners, and with the first makeups of the year kicking off last weekend I thought I'd do something fun! Blue eyeliner and super natural glowly skin and pink lip la for the win. Ps. Why does the car always have the best selfie lighting?!

Both @be.shepherd and @ilandaforde came to see me to get their makeup done for Brooks 21st. They both opted for dewy skin, nude lips and stand out eyes ❀️

Plum toned look I created on myself a while back! Let me know if there are any looks you'd like to see me do X

With bookings now open for the 2018 ball and wedding season please get in touch to make sure you get an appointment. Happy New Year ❀️❀️

Lat Saturday I attended the Christmas races and as I was just out of hospital had to try pretty hard makeup wise to make myself presentable! I used a lot of bronzer and highlighter to create this glowly look. I used some rose gold pigments on my eyelids and blended out with brown and red tones, to compliment my amazing crown which the beautiful @mary_oh_ lent me along with my beautiful dress! Now that I'm starting to feel better I am taking bookings for 2018, so get in quick ❀️ Ps. I apologise for Mikeys face in this picture πŸ˜‚πŸ’ž

Earlier this year I had the privilege of beautifying an old friend @hannahlaity and the stunning @daisydagg. Wasn't hard to make these two look even amazing! @ Wanaka, New Zealand

Hair, makeup and the best reunion for my girl @roseytravels over the weekend. We used red, Ruby and burgundy tones to make roses Icey blue eyes really pop. Brontoured check bones and a plum blush to complete this look ❀️ @ Millbrook Resort, Queenstown

Lovely @be.shepherd came to see me a few weeks back for makeup for her 21st. We used pinks and peachy tones to compliment her green eyes and beautiful dress 😍😩

Monday throw back to when I was baby makeup artist and trying my hand at body art ✌🏿️🐬🌊

Make up for myself yesterday, bronzey brown smokey eye, nude lips and plenty of highlighter πŸ’ž

A wee look from a while ago! Pretty much my go too; brown tones on my eyes, nude lips, defined brows and heaps of bronzer and highlight. With the Invercargill races just around the corner I am fully booked with a bright and early 7.00am start. If you are desperate to get in, let me know and I can pop your name on the cancellation list ✌🏿️✌🏿

Makeup for the lovely @brydie.harrington, for a 21st she had last weekend. She wanted something pinky, so we used some light pinks, deep reds and dark purples to create this pink smokey eye πŸ’ž

Had the privilege of doing the lovely @megjaynestokes makeup last weekend, when she celebrated her 21st birthday! We went for a subtle eye and glowey skin with a slight contour of her check bones, and lots of bronzey toned blush 😍

Makeup for the beautiful @kadisonali this weekend. We went with a simple brown smokey eye, dark and sty tired brows, brontouring rather than contouring and a whole lot of high light. Topped of with an ash brown lip and some false lashes! Such a gorgeous Spring look 😍😍

[10/20/17]   It's the final hour to win a free makeup with me and a dress hire with The Shack Rentals! Make sure you've tagged your friends and they've liked both pages to go in the draw! X

I loved these plum tones and dark lips, which is a bit of a change from my usual nude lip 😍

These beauties showed up this morning and I am a happy Chappy ❀️❀️

Loved this glowy pink look today! πŸ’žπŸ’ž

Today you will find me collecting for @nzbcf, feeling like a barbie doll in pink. Today I used my new @crownbrushnewzealand goodies to create this look, they are AMAZING! πŸ’žπŸ’ž
