I began my makeup career with formal makeup training at the Academy of Makeup and hair styling training at Showface Studio. After gaining valuable experience in the beauty industry including as a makeup artist at Mecca Cosmetica and working with international makeup artists from NARS and Stila (my favourite brands), I spent some time in a well-known bridal boutique as a bridal consultant, where I met a lot of interesting people and fell in love with the bridal industry.
Combining my skills and techniques in makeup, hair and bridal services, I quickly built up my own client base and branched out from my mentor's bridal beauty business. Since then, I have freelanced and worked alongside with a few other makeup artists. In 2012, I founded the award-winning team Faces makeup and Hair, which is now one of the strongest and most sought after makeup and hair styling teams in Sydney's bridal industry.
I hold tightly on to my philosophy that brides should walk down the aisle looking just like themselves. Makeup should add confidence and elegance without masking natural features. Brides come to me for my unique natural makeup application, particularly for creating a thin, comfortable and flawless base. My clients describe my style as "fresh" and "clean". I am particularly proud of being able to enhance one's features without a heavy made-up look.
My less relevant achivements include a doctorate degree in biological sciences from the University of Sydney. In pastime, I practise law in a fun and reputable national law firm to keep myself entertained.
