Bridal Makeup

YOUR WEDDING DAY is one of the most important days of your life and you will want to make sure you look breathtakingly flawless and camera-ready. Whatever your wedding style, I’m here to help you achieve the perfect look and make you feel relaxed and pampered, enjoying your bridal preparations before you head off to realise your dreams with your life partner.
Another important consideration is your Wedding Party. Let me help take care of them too making your Bridesmaids, Mother-of-Bride, Mother-in-Law & Grandmothers look their very best for your big day.

A MAKEUP TRIAL is the best way to figure out what you like and avoid any stress on the big day – as all brides have differing tastes and styles, with some knowing exactly the look they are going for and others who may not be so sure.
My focus is always on you – the bride, interpreting your vision whilst adding an artistry that will have you looking your absolute best yet still looking like yourself. If you have a member of your Wedding Party who feels they too need a makeup trial, I am very happy to include them in the process.

Let’s Catch-up

If you having a wedding coming up soon, why not give me a call 0407 600 590 or by email. We can even catch up for a coffee to see if we are the right fit for each other. It would be great to meet you and share in the excitement of your wedding arrangements.

Hear from my Brides….

“Vanessa is a lovely person and a wonderful makeup artist who did my makeup, including my bridal party which included older family members. She catered for different complexions, styles and tastes of everyone perfectly, which was a godsend on an already stressful day! We all looked amazing and received so many compliments about our makeup. Thankyou Vanessa for making my special day so perfect.”

Serena, Darlington
“Vanessa had a tough job with my bridal party. From myself who never wears make up to a bridesmaid with a cold sore. Vanessa did an amazing job of making myself feel comfortable and being able to cover up my bridesmaid’s blemish. She excelled in her roll as make artist and we all looked stunning for the big day”

Bronte, Helena Valley
“I just want to thank you again for the beautiful work you’ve done for me and the ladies as well as the flower girls. The flower girls really enjoyed getting their makeup done for the first time, thanks to you for making them feel comfortable through the process!

You did such a great job doing our makeup and made us all feel and look so beautiful on the day!

Would definitely recommend you to friends and family”

“Makeup is selfconfidence applied directly to the face.”

Hear from my School Graduates…

“I was concerned about looking too made up and wanted a more natural but glamorous look for my Year 12 School Ball. Vanessa was great. She took the time to look at images I had saved as inspiration and nailed the look that I wanted. I loved the overall look Vanessa gave me and I felt really confident.
I’ll definitely be recommending Vanessa to my friends”

Lilly, Darlington
“I would like to thank you for accomplishing my daughter Sienna’s look for her Year 12 school ball. We had the most wonderful experience with you preparing for the event. She looked stunning and felt really special. Sienna had some ideas in regards to the look she was after and I really appreciate the way you discussed and clarified with her and also explained what you were doing as you were applying her make up. She had a great night and we will be booking you in for every future occasion where make up is required.”

Deanna (Mother) for Sienna, Darlington
“My experience with Vanessa for my school ball makeup was excellent. She arrived on time, was very organised, worked in a timely manner and I was lucky enough to be able to do a trial with her! She really involved herself with the whole process, she made sure the dress matched the makeup, making suggestions on how my idea could be improved. I would 100% recommend Vanessa for ball and formal occasions makeup.”

Breanna, Ellenbrook

Makeup Lessons

Why Makeup Classes ?
Are you at the beginning of your makeup journey or you’ve not changed your makeup routine in decades and curious on how to improve your look? Well, by joining a professional makeup class I will help you understand how to enhance your features, giving you a flattering and stylish look that doesn’t lean heavily on makeup trends that are “here today and gone tomorrow” or cost you a small fortune in upgrading your makeup products.

It may seem indulgent or intimidating having a makeup lesson but let me tell you it really isn’t – it’s a lot of fun and the smartest thing you can probably do for yourself to save time, money and face!
Here’s why;

Making your makeup $$’s go further

Cosmetic counter staff are qualified to apply makeup but are trained first and foremost to sell products with sales targets in mind, not necessarily in the customer’s best interest. Same goes for the so called “makeup influencers” on social media who heavily promote makeup trends and products which are driven by sponsorship deals, commissions and free endorsement products for their video clicks and likes. This doesn’t necessarily lead to the most cost-effective way to create the perfect makeup kit for you.
By comparison, as a professional makeup artist who is brand-agnostic I will work with you to maximise the makeup investments you’ve already made or recommend suitable products specifically to your skin tone, skin type, age and budget. Also, by having me come to your home provides a far more enjoyable and conducive atmosphere to learn, tips, tricks and techniques at your own pace, allowing you to confidently learn by “doing” rather than just watching or having it done to you.

A makeup lesson ‘unique’ as your own face

Learning how to flatter our own uniqueness takes some skill and a little know-how, so having a tailored made makeup lesson with me who knows to ask questions, listens to your answers and offers useful and enlightening advice along with makeup techniques to benefit your style and tastes, will give you great certainty your time, effort and dollars are well spent.

Makeup for Tweens
Some young people become curious about makeup from 8 years old but most don’t start wearing makeup until the ages of 10 to 15 years. My advice (being a parent of two girls) is to teach them makeup is fun and a great form of expression, but it shouldn’t become a mask they hide behind – we want them to embrace their youth and beauty.

Teaching them early on in having a simple skincare routine will help them during the challenging phase of puberty and create good habits into adulthood.

When it comes to them wearing makeup, fresh & natural is the way to go. I recommend for tweens (10-12yrs) a clear or tinted lip gloss and lightly applied mascara (which also comes as a clear gel). As they move into the next age group these makeup tips still apply but perhaps a tinted moisturizer or BB cream is needed to help even out skin tone and slight imperfections. There is no need for them to shy away from a splash of colour on the eyes and cheeks, but the trick is learning the correct placement and blending. So, I guess what I’m saying is, this is where I come in. I offer makeup tutorials either one-on-one or in a group session, giving young people the confidence and knowledge in technique application of basic skincare and makeup that will set them on a steady course to success in looking age appropriate whilst still feeling fabulous.

Community Service
Becoming a Guest Makeup Speaker and Demonstrator for VisAbility (a not-for-profit business offering a range of disability services) with their Look Good, Feel Confident Workshop, allows me to work with those in the community needing life skills training & development in personal care and enhancement on how to apply makeup using adapted tools and techniques. This concept initially started as an online workshop at the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic but overtime, with lessening of restrictions, it’s now run in-house at VisAbility’s headquarters.

Feedback from those participating in these classes has been extremely positive, with many enjoying the benefits of learning life skills that will help them gain confidence and well-being.
