Why Choose Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle. I'm a professional bridal hair and makeup artist...
Making you feel incredible on your wedding day is what I do best.
My absolute joy is to create exquisite bridal styles. In my 15 years experience, I have developed a style of fresh, luminous, natural makeup that still looks and feels like you – emphasising your best features that will make you feel amazing. Your makeup will be long lasting, and photograph to perfection whether it be a flawless natural look or a bold smokey eye. I believe that makeup doesn’t have to be too heavy for it to look incredible. What’s most important to me is that you are comfortable and confident wearing as little or as much as you please!
I am a self confessed perfectionist that loves dark chocolate and red wine. I have strong family values and am also a mum to not only 2 gorgeous daughters, but to the cutest Siberian Husky. Her name is Luna and she loves to say hello to my brides when they visit for their trial! I am based in Wollongong, and frequent The Southern Highlands and South Coast regions. I offer my home studio for trials and special occasion guests, or I am fully mobile and can come to you. On your wedding day, I’ll visit you at your location so you can relax and enjoy the morning.
Why choose me to be your makeup artist?
There are lots of professional artists to choose from.
Price, experience as well as products are the 3 main things that separate artists in the industry. So here is a little about me, and what you can expect from an industry professional.
The year 2017 will mark my 15th year in the makeup & beauty industry. This means that I have the experience to properly customise each client, whether you are a bride or in the bridal party, to match skincare & makeup products that will actually suit your skin type & condition.
I do not believe in a "one brand fits all" and therefore stock a variety of luxury brands to create a flawless finish for each face I make over. I use the best brands available because I personally like to use luxe items on my own skin, and believe that your wedding day should be the one day you can spoil yourself, and feel pampered. The way you look and feel in your photographs should be number one priority so don't skimp on quality when it comes to your overall look and style!
On the wedding day, I will not have you rushing around to finish getting ready at the last minute. I will make a timeline that will meet your specific wedding's needs, so we are not rushing a single aspect of your hair and makeup. This guarantees your look will be exactly how you want it.
What's my style?
My makeup and hair styles are soft, natural, beautiful and long lasting, backed up with a professional, all rounded service. Nothing is too much trouble and I will work with you until you are 100% satisfied with your chosen look.
Your chosen wedding hair and makeup will look timeless and and most importantly, you will love how you look when you look back at your photos!
I have a great understanding of what needs to be done for makeup for wedding photography, as my husband is a top Bowral wedding photographer! We make a sensational duo that work together during the morning preparations to make sure your bridal portrait photos are perfection.
Be an amazing version of yourself!
My brides feel confident in their look, and are treated to additional service of an instant skin brightening & hydrating treatment, décolleté highlight, and luminous moisturiser on the back, arms and shoulders- Because a great makeup artist will not just paint the face.
If the only option you need is a reliable, highly skilled artist for your wedding day, with the added bonus of using beautiful high end products to feel completely pampered then please get in touch with me to discuss how I can be a part of your wedding preparations.
Being based in Wollongong allows me to service the Illawarra, Southern Highlands, Kangaroo Valley, Berry and South Coast regions with ease. I am happy to travel anywhere for my brides so if you feel my style is right for you, no matter where you are, please get in touch.
