Twisting Vintage & Ecolena Winter 2021

I love being booked for hair and makeup work in the Southern Highlands – its a added bonus when I don’t have to travel further than Bowral for work.

This shoot was even closer to home! It was in Fitzroy Falls at BodyCott’s Studio and Dairy – only 10 minutes from home.

It was a photoshoot for Twisting Vintage and Ecolena Bowral with favourite crazy girl model Tayla Monkhouse and a beautiful new face Katelyn Smith.

Although this post should be about the shoot – I am going to be totally selfish and just post up some of the beautiful face shots of the girls.

The amazing photographer on this shoot was Catherine Worsley Photography – I love working with her – her photography is so stunning!

These photos are unedited – which is why I have posted them up as makeup shots – most makeup shots are so edited you cannot actually see if you like my work or not!

I hope you love these photos as much as I do! x


Whimsical eco-ethical bridal shoot in the Southern Highlands

As a passionate eco-ethical makeup artist I love it when I get to work with others who have similar ethics.

Amazing Dinah from Pearl Button Bridal who often uses vintage laces for her stunning wedding dresses – and never uses anything not ethically made was the bridal designer for this shoot.

Alison Kennon Botanical design who forages for most of her florals and only uses flowers in season and those grown locally – so small green footprint was our florist.

We shot the photos in one of the renovated repurposed railway carriages on Redleaf farm which is a working farm – but they are open to small weddings – yay! They are very much paddock to plate in their approach – keeping the miles short.

Catherine Worsley Photography who works in film not digitally – which means more thought has to go into each and every shot – more love than random shooting.

Two beautiful models – one pale as the fallen snow and one with a chocolatey beauty.


Arlington Milne Winter 2020 fashion shoot in the Southern Highlands

One of my favourite jobs is doing makeup for fashion shoots – truly – isn’t this every makeup artist’s dream?

I love it even more when I adore the fashion and it is shot in the Southern Highlands of NSW!

Arlington Milne’s clothing is gorgeous – it is designed here in Australia by a very talented woman.

The photos were taken on the coldest autumn day just outside of Burrawang on a beautiful farm which we would have loved a lot more if it weren’t so cold – Megan our model was a champion – she stayed stoic throughout the shoot and looked stunning all day.
