Yes, you can! I’m based in Takapuna on the North Shore, with a lovely studio just a stones throw from Takapuna beach. Only a 15 minute drive from central Auckland.
Please enquire with the location you will need services for exact pricing, provided below are estimates to some areas of Auckland for a rough idea.
New Lynn: $30
West Harbour: $30
I use a variety of high quality make up, skincare and hair styling products that change on a regular basis so it’s hard for me to tell you exactly what I use. Some of the brands regularly featured in my kit including Chanel, M.A.C, Nars, SUQQU, Urban Decay, Stila, Khiels, Avene, La Roche Posay, Redken, Oribe and Living Proof.
Yes, please wash your hair the night before, making sure all shampoo and conditioner has been rinsed well. Please ensure your hair is dry and has no product in it. Straightening may be required the day before as well depending on your hair texture and desired style, if you are unsure please ask and I will advise you.
I always recommend a good skincare regime, this is something we’ll talk about at the trial, which is why it’s a good idea to do this a couple months in advance. In addition it’s a good idea to start seeing a facialist for regular facials, or a dermatologist if you have particularly problematic skin. I understand these things are not within everyones budget or time constraints which is why I do a lot of skin prep on all my clients – without good skin there cannot be good makeup.
It is up to you if you would like to purchase your own lipstick that you can applied on the day – we will discuss this on your trial date and I will suggest what will be best for you, other wise I supply you with a complimentary sample of the lip colour used. Powder is not something I supply a tester of, you may want to consider purchasing a compact if becoming oily/shiny is a problem for you.
A Preview and Consultation is for Brides and is the time to experiment with the look you have in mind for your event. I recommend this is done 4 – 6 weeks or more prior to the wedding. A Preview and Consultation will take 2-3 hours typically, and includes one hair style and makeup look. If unsure about what style to go for, please let me know as this will incur an additional charge. For other special occasions trials are not required but I am happy to do one if needed.
Getting eyelash extensions can be a great idea for some people. I do include complimentary individual or full strip lashes for all clients, but they do only last up until you wash your face that night. The individual lashes give the exact same look as the extensions. I am happy to point you in the right direction to lash salons I love!
Of course! Depending on the time you need to be ready by and my other bookings that day, I may need to bring a second artist with me. When you enquire with your date, location (which can be at my studio upon request), the time you need to be finished by, and the number of people wanting hair and makeup, I will advise you.
For each service I schedule 45 minutes, so for both hair and makeup for one person this will be approximately 1.5hrs.
