I was super happy with Yvette. We clicked really well. She made me feel so comfortable and I was so happy with everything. I felt like I could be honest with her about what I wanted and she was more than happy to accommodate.

Pru Robinson

Just wanted to send an email to thank you so very much for everything. The wedding was sensational and the make-up and hair was the ‘icing on the cake’ It was exactly what I wanted, I felt gorgeous but still looked like me! Thank you! Matt thought I looked wonderful, (just elegant, not sturdy) a more polished version of me. Thanks so much for your kindness, quick replies to emails, lovely nature and fun; it was a joy to hang out and I really hope to see you again.

Kind regards Katie Crookes – Moon

Yvette was brilliant, she sent us heaps of information of beauty tips. We did a trial and she was really cool.

Hi Yvette,

Thank you and your team for the wonderful job you all did on Saturday for my daughter Holly’s wedding. They all looked so beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed having my makeup done for the first time. Thank you also for all the lovely things you said about my dress. You boosted my confidence tremendously. Would you please let Ameina know that I was really pleased with my hair as well. It still looked good the next day and everything brushed out so easily, my hair feels soft and natural.

Regards Denise Johnson

Yvette was wonderful to have on the morning of the wedding – she was on schedule the whole morning and never ran out of things to talk about with any of the six girls whose makeup she did. And the most important part – they all looked beautiful and loved their makeup – which lasted amazingly well all day and into the night!

Sarah D

Thank you for all your hard work in doing our makeup on our special day. We all felt so beautiful and the makeup looks great in all the photos. You did an amazing job at making four very different girls look beautiful without hiding what makes them unique. It was really a lovely experience to have you around that morning, it was such a fun and relaxed way to get ready.

Kind regards Holly Wilson

I am a nervous make-up person, never wearing any, nor knowing any of the industry’s lingo. I was super worried that I would wind up with a porcelain-doll make-up job that didn’t look like me at all! If this is you, then give Yvette van Schie a trail! Yvette did a beautiful ‘natural’ job with my make up. The best comment I got on the day was, “You look like YOU, only more beautiful-er!”.

Bronwyn

Hi Yvette

Just want to send my sincere thanks to you and Jess for Saturday. Our hair and makeup looked beautiful and it complemented our dresses and flowers perfectly!

At midnight I still felt as beautiful as I did walking down the aisle. It held so nicely and I didn’t want to take it off!
Doug and I had an amazing day and we can’t thank you enough.
Warm Wishes

Yvette is a very talented and experienced makeup artist and hairdresser! She is great at bringing out natural beauty without leaving you feeling like your makeup is caked on. The makeup and hair lasted my whole wedding day and looked great in person and in photos!
Jennifer Appleton

Just a quick note to say thank you and Emma again for making us look beautiful for the big day! Your relaxed manner certainly helped calm this nervous bride! We all felt incredibly comfortable, had a lot of fun and were so happy with our hair and make-up! Thank you again for everything!

Shauna Jamieson

Thank you for the awesome hair and makeup you did for my wedding! You ended up being the topic of conversation during the night about how amazing you were, not only in doing our hair and makeup, but your warm personality and style tips on the side. You helped make the day a true success.

Katy Lin

Hi Yvette,

Matt and I are back from our honeymoon and I wanted to express our sincere thanks to you for being our wonderful make-up artist. We are truly blessed to have had you on our wedding day, to keep us ladies calm, colour us beautiful and do so in such a kind fashion.

The girls and Mums were so thrilled with your work, myself of course included!

Thank you for all the emails, assistance along the way.

We are very big fans of you and your work.

With love Kate & Matt Gould

Dear Yvette,

I can’t thank you enough for Saturday and everything leading up to it.  Rob loved my hair & make-up – couldn’t believe the difference between the big day and the trial and said you really seemed to get me the second time around!  Melinda & Bec both looked gorgeous and we all got many compliments.  The way you dealt with the day and kept everything moving was fantastic and it just felt seamless.  I told Rob about your magic spray to calm my nerves and he said he’ll have to ask you where to get some in case he needs it in the future!  🙂

I’m so glad I followed Rosi’s advice and contacted you! 

– thanks again. Michelle

Our make up was so incredible on the day, we can’t thank you enough. And not just for the make up, for keeping us all calm and on track and running the show. We all felt so comfortable and relaxed having you two helping us.

I couldn’t have pictured our make up looking as perfect as it did, you did an incredible job.

Thank you again, Carly Dewey

Hi Yvette,

I just wanted to say thank you for doing my hair and makeup. Both were amazing but in particular, my hair was so beautiful. Better than I imagined! I love how you adjusted on the day and created my hair to match my dress beautifully.

Mum and my sister looked beautiful too, you did a great job.

Thanks again, Kate

Just wanted to send a quick thank you for doing my wedding make up. From our first meeting I knew I had found the right person. You were so lovely & fun and I knew you understood exactly what I was after. On the day you and Emma were wonderful, all the girls commented on how nice you were & how much they loved their make up. Everything turned out exactly how we wanted, I couldn’t have been happier.

Thanks again, Jenny

Hi Yvette,

THANK YOU so so much for doing the make up for my wedding of Friday! Our make up was absolutely perfect, really beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I love, love, loved it! (And yes you were right…it lasted beautiful requiring no touch ups!)

We had an absolutely amazing day but it all started in the morning, you helped us to feel relaxed, calm and made us laugh! You were so incredibly lovely and a joy to have around. Thank you so much for being part of our day. Thank You!

Kindest Regards

As a wedding photographer, it’s always reassuring to know that your bride has chosen to engage the best hair and makeup team for their day.

When Yvette and her team are there, I know that preparations will be on time, and the bride and her maidens will look absolutely wonderful.

Yvette is not only fantastically professional with a great appreciation of natural looking makeup and elegant stylish hair – she understands the importance of making sure everyone is on time.

She has great respect for the  photographer’s role of capturing beautiful pre-ceremony photos for all to treasure.

I love that she brings wisdom and intelligence to the experience and that there is an air of maturity in the room. It’s not just about making sure that brides are physically ready for the ceremony – it’s also about making sure they are emotionally ready to have their pre-ceremony photos, relaxed and happy.

Hello Yvette,

I am writing to thank you and Clare very much for doing our hair and make up for our wedding at Sylvan Glen.

I was so happy with my hair it was exactly the way I wanted to wear it on the day. Clare had the style spot on and it absolutely held in place all day. Clare had the expertise and knowledge of where to place my lace clip and veil without the hair style being affected. It was certainly a hair style that felt like me  – classic.

I also credit yourself Yvette on the makeup look you did on me – I didn’t feel “made up” at all. It was a better version of me with my makeup. I loved the look you gave me and it was so perfect that it looked very natural in the photos. My husband Jordan said that I looked so beautiful and the hair and makeup was exactly what I would chose.

The two bridesmaids looked beautiful, my sister Katherine was so happy with her hair and makeup.

I was so calm and collected on the wedding day and enjoyed the morning spent with you getting beautiful for the day.

Even though I had a trial and was happy with it, I credit you both even more on the wedding day with the final look you pulled off on me. It was exactly what I had imagined myself to look like on the day.

Once again thank you very much for everything you have done for me. Your fast responses to my emails prior to the wedding date to my little questions you would always answer helped me prepare for the wedding day.

I would have not hesitation in referring you to any one that is interested in bridal hair and beauty in the Southern Highlands.

Many thanks,

Courtnee Fitzgerald

Hi Yvette,

Thank you so much for the incredible job you did in transforming our wedding party into raving beauties! The makeup was exactly what we were after. I hope we have the opportunity of working with you again. Keep well knowing that we are constantly singing your praises!

Susan

Hi Yvette

Yvette, a big thank you for the makeup work you did for my wedding day. I had been very disappointed with a trial I had with another supplier, so to have you come and do such beautiful, natural makeup on the day without ever meeting me was amazing. Not only did you re-arrange another job you had on to fit me in, you also raced back to do a final touch up before I ‘went on’. I don’t think you need it as your reputation proceeds you, but I would absolutely recommend you to anyone wanting simple, natural makeup.

You made me look like me, just a better version of myself.

Clare

Yvette,

I just would like the chance to say thank you so much for everything, and that you have two amazing girls in Claire and Emma. They did such a wonderful job and I couldn’t be happier with the work and effort they put in with all. My hair was fantastic not one bit of hair was out of place all night.

Amanda Campbell

Hi Yvette,

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for the hair and make-up your staff did for us. My hair was exactly what I wanted and my make-up was really nice and natural, no complaints at all. All the girls hair actually looked really good and Ameina was great in making sure my mum’s hair was done so that she didn’t look too old, she loved it!!!

Also a thanks for their patience too. My mother-in-law is disabled and is very slow to get going in the mornings. As below we arranged for her to get to the wedding venue by 9:30 to have her hair done but she was about 20minutes late. Even then it was kind of amazing that she was ready by then!!! The girls stayed on to do her hair and also when she arrived she wanted her make-up done (she has some memory loss and must have forgotten that she’d decided not to get it done) so out came the make-up boxes that had been packed away and they made her look great!

Thanks

Rebecca

Hi Yvette,

Would like to start by saying you have two of the most beautiful girls I have met 🙂 was such a pleasure having Claire and Emma apart of my wedding day, there professionalism really showed off your business (and don’t worry I have already spread the word about Ethix) I was so very happy with all the girls and my own hair and make up I couldn’t have asked for any more from them. Claire was so good when it came to helping me with my bridesmaids hair style as I had an idea of how I wanted it but wasn’t sure how to express it so she could understand, and Emma done a fantastic job on all our faces 🙂 especially made my mum feel beautiful as although i think she is beautiful she is quite self conscious about her face.

You should be so proud of your team – they are one in a million 🙂

Kind regards

Leah McFadden

Hi Yvette,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for doing an amazing job on my make up, I loved it!  My mum also loved hers and has been getting lots of comments on how fantastic her make up was. Thanks again!

Rachael Jermyn

WOW!!  Thank you so much for all your help in the lead up to my wedding day.  Thank you so much for all your help and advice to make me feel and look so beautiful.  The picture speaks for itself really.  I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day.

Words can’t describe the way both you and Clare made me feel on my special day.  From the bottom of my heart thank you again …

Suzi Dosen

Dear Yvette, Michelle & Ameina

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for helping to make our day so special. We were all happy with our hair and make up, couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Kind regards

Shelley Choi

Hi Yvette,

Just wanted to say a big thank-you for Friday! Jayne and I looked even more beautiful than normal! We all had a fabulous day and everyone thought I looked stunning!

Thanks again.

Julie

Hi Yvette,

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job you both did on Saturday for Melissa’s wedding.

We all had a very relaxing time and the girls looked absolutely beautiful.

You were both so easy to work with that it made the day lots of fun for all.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know who needs your services.

Regards and thanks again

Sue Bradburn

I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for yesterday. You were both amazing. I love love loved it!.I know we were total chaos and I’m sorry for that. In the end the entire day was perfection.

I was so happy with my make up and hair and I got so many compliments on it. Jess looked amazing (but she always does). But for me, it was even more important that my mum felt special, and wow did you guys make her feel like a million dollars. Mum is really difficult because she doesn’t normally wear make up and is so fussy with her hair, but she looked amazing. And she felt amazing. She was so so so happy with the way she looked and her skin glowed. She got so many compliments on the way she looked and my dad was blown away too, which (after knowing each other for 45 years) was lovely. Mum totally rocked the dancefloor, which in part was due to feeling fab about the way she looked – the other part was the champers ; 0.

You were both unreal. Thanks again! I will definitely be recommending you both whenever I get the chance!

Alex

You realise that you are the most beautiful women on earth after having your make up and hair done by Yvette and her team, when the following three things occur:

1) Your family and friends wolf whistle at you whilst walking down the aisle

2) Your husband to be is lost for words and watches you walk towards him with his mouth ajar

3) That every single person after the event keeps on telling you just how amazingly stunning you looked

It doesn’t get much better than that…

Corinne Akhurst

We have just returned from our honeymoon and I wanted to immediately email to thank you for the wonderful work you did. I was thrilled with both my hair and makeup, and as you saw at the end, both perfectly complimented my dress. I felt quite the movie star throughout the day, and many guests commented on my ‘divaesque’ quality! You guys perfectly nailed my desire to look a bit 50s, but not too ‘period’. Your relaxed chatter throughout the day was also great at keeping things fairly relaxed and easy going.

Both my Mum and Sam’s mum Jenny were both also thrilled with how they looked on the day, so a big big thank you to you all for your hard work and unbelievable expertise.

All the very best, Anna

Wow! Its been over a month since our wedding. I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful work you did, such an amazing job!! I truly loved my hair and make-up, everything was just perfect! So many guests commented on how lovely it all looked. Thank you both!!

I hope all is going well with you.

Very best wishes, Holly

I would like to take this chance to thank you very much for your work for my wedding. I do believe that I was lucky to have the best in the business looking after me.          Your work is amazing and you are definitely a master of your craft.

I also wanted the thank Claire for my hair. The words master of her craft come to mind again. My hair was amazing, I could not have asked for anything better and almost every person at the wedding commented on my hair, so thank you very much Claire you are amazing.

Thank you also to Amenia and Michelle for my bridesmaid’s make up and hair. She looked amazing.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you all. You are not only brilliant at what you do, but also really great people to deal with and I have sang your praises to all I have spoken to and will definitely recommend you to others. You helped make my day the beautiful, perfect day it turned out to be.

Thanks again,

Susan Skinner

Please thank Emma and Claire for us, we were all really happy with our hair and makeup, which lasted all through the night despite the strong winds.                 Starting our preparations with Claire and Emma set the tone for a fun and relaxing day. We’re all really glad they were available to help us out on Saturday.

Many thanks to you also, Yu-Lan

Thank you so much to you and your amazing team for making us all look gorgeous! We had alot of fun getting ready and were so relaxed knowing we were in such capable hands. I loved my makeup, I’ve seen a few pics and I look like “ME”…….just enhanced!

You and your team are so professional and friendly I would recommend you to anyone!

Thank you for making our wedding day perfect.

Rachael

Thank you so much (for our makeup), we all felt so good, the makeup was AMAZING! We had so many compliments and had such a good time getting ready as well.

Thanks again! Aislinn

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in the lead-up to my wedding, and to say how wonderful Emma & Clare were.  They did a fantastic job and everyone loved them – they even stayed and helped my dad with his buttonhole!

Best regards, Natalie

I know it is late as we just returned from our honeymoon last night but I just wanted to thank you and Emma  for doing such an amazing job on my wedding day. We were all so happy with our makeup and the girls looked just stunning. I have added a few photos for you if you want to use them on your website or portfolio. I will be recommending you to everyone I know getting married in the highlands. Thanks again.

Beck

I wanted to thank you again for doing the makeup for my wedding day.  You brought out the natural beauty in my bridesmaid, and made us both look and  feel more beautiful than we had ever imagined.   Thank you for doing my mums makeup, she felt so very pampered and beautiful.  From the moment I met you I felt comfortable and knew that I had picked the right person to do our makeup.  You made the whole experience fun and relaxed. You truly are amazing and I feel very lucky to have to met you and look forward to catching up again soon for a facial.

Thank you and best wishes always, Kirstie

Just a quick note to say thanks to you and your team for your tremendous work over the weekend! I truly felt like a princess and Brian was speehless when he saw me! You can tell Claire he loved the curls around my face. My cousin’s husband also told me I looked like a Greek goddess – have to be happy with that and all down to your beautiful make up and hair.

If you have any future brides that would like to talk to a previous bride, I’d be more than happy to give Ethix a glowing testimonial. I’ll also send you some pics when we get them.

All the best, Jenny Klem

We’re just getting back to reality after an amazing wedding and honeymoon.  I would like to say a big thank you to you and Margot for doing our make-up on the day.  You were lovely to deal with and fantastic at calming everyone down so we had a really smooth and fun day getting ready.  I had lots of lovely comments about how natural my make-up looked.  All the bridesmaids looked stunning and felt special.

Thank you again and all the best! Kirsty

Yvette was so friendly and professional. She was able to turn me, a girl who rarely wears makeup or takes care of her skin, into a princess on my big day. She listened to what I wanted throughout the whole process and helped me in not only preparing my skin so it looked its best on the day, but creating a look that was unique and in keeping with the wedding theme. She captured the look I was aiming for. She made the whole bridal party feel comfortable and was calming and efficient on the day.

I highly recommend her for any wedding or special event, as her natural look, distinctive style and choice of products puts her a cut above the rest.

Danielle Louis

Thank you so much for the beautiful job that you did on our makeup for the wedding. Thank you also for working so well with Sensoria and having us all ready on time, this helped to make the day stress free.

After a perfect start to the day we had lots of fun at the wedding, I was having so much fun at the reception dancing that I didn’t have time to touch up my makeup and it still looked good by the end of the night J I also loved how you did my mum’s makeup as she is not used to wearing makeup, the natural soft makeup really suited her and it was good because unlike other times when she had her makeup done she didn’t wipe half of it off and she was comfortable with it.

Thanks again!! Michelle

The girls (bridesmaids) thought you were wonderful and did an amazing job on all of them. From the mums right down to the flower girls – they were all so pleased with the way they looked. More importantly Matt loved your work! 😉 He was so happy because he had been worrying the whole time that I wouldn’t look like myself and he kept telling me how glad he was when he saw what I looked like. And that I was the most beautiful he had ever seen me. So thank you. You are MAGIC.

Fara Tanos

Thank you so much for the beautiful work you did at our wedding.  My mum, girls and myself were so happy with the beautiful MU you did and Stuart (my husband) was blown away with how gorgeous we all looked … he couldnt stop telling me how beautiful I was.

Thanks again for all your hard work (and also your assistant who was excellent too!).  You were a wonderful person to have around the day of our wedding, keeping everyone feeling calm but most of all making us all look our very best.  I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend your services to anyone, you are incredibly talented at what you do!

Megan Rose O’Brien

I just want to thank you so much for your AMAZING efforts and talents that went towards our wonderful wedding day. You made me feel like a real fairytale princess! Everyone commented on how beautiful and natural the make up looked, not just on me, but also on my mum, mother in law and sister in law. I still looked and felt as beautiful at 12:00am as I did when I walked down the isle. You are such a talented lady and I will be telling everyone I come accross that if they are ever looking for a make up artist that you are the one for the job!

Rachel Larmer

I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for the wonderful job you did on my makeup.  I know it wasn’t easy with me tearing up at the slightest move towards my eyes, but you did such a great job 🙂  Everyone complemented me on the day for my beautiful natural make up (don’t think they were just saying that either),  and everyone who has seen photos since is so impressed.  You made me look far better than I was hoping to look.  I still look like me, which is fantastic.  Normally I don’t like looking at photos of myself, but I am happy with every photo (part of that is due to me feeling like I look great).

So, thank you once again for a perfect job,

Anthea MacKenzie-Bauer

Yvette was wonderful. I was thrilled with my make-up, my bridesmaids’ and the mums (we had three!). I didn’t have to worry about a thing as Yvette organised everyone and made us feel so calm and at ease; it was more like having a special friend share the morning.  I have never felt so glamorous and am pleased Yvette was apart of my special day!

Amy Pappin

As an ‘older bride’ I wasn’t going to worry about getting my make-up done on my wedding day, I thought I knew my face well enough to know what suited me best.  I saw Yvette doing a bride’s make-up when I was having my hair done at Sensoria and I liked the way she worked and her style, so decided to have a trial run. I am so glad I did, she really did make a difference, which made me feel fantastic, was commented on and certainly showed in the photos we had taken on the day. I think she should do a ‘before and after’ spread on her website! Maybe we will! (Yvette)

Robyn Evans

Thank you so very much for making my wedding day wonderful – the makeup you did was fantastic! We really enjoyed spending the day getting ready with you – you just made the preparations so easy and fun! John loved the look! Thank you again for making us all look gorgeous and for making me feel like a princess!

Carolyn

A very big thank you for all your hard work to make myself and my girls look very beautiful. You truly did a wonderful job! You also made the morning loads of fun!

Sharon

This is Kirste Wilmot (formerly Kirste Perry), just writing to say thankyou so much for making me look so beautiful on my wedding day. So many people commented on how professional it looked, even my husband who is hard to please. The girls all looked so wonderful also. You were a pleasure to meet and I will definitely recommend you to others.

Thanks for everything, Kirste

I am just back from honeymoon and wanted to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the fabulous job that you did on my makeup for my wedding day. I was extremely happy with the natural look that you created for me and I received many compliments from our guests. In fact, I am still receiving compliments from friends and relatives who were not able to attend the wedding who have just seen the photos!

The skin care advice you gave me really helped to ensure my skin was in excellent condition on the day. It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you on the day as your down to earth personality really helped to calm my nerves. I would certainly recommend your services to any future bride.

Kind Regards, Kylie

Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you to you and Bella for making my wedding day special.  Your calm manner helped us all keep our cool I am sure.

The funny thing is that my partner said exactly the same thing as another one of your bride’s partners said in your testimonials on your web site. He was so happy that I didn’t have the make up caked on and he said that I still looked natural (this seemed to be a big worry to him as he said it with a sense of relief).

I can’t tell you how many people told me on the wedding day that I looked stunning – now usually I would lap these kind of comments up but by the 100th telling I was like gee Yvette must of really worked some magic.

Emma Jones

Just got back from our honeymoon in Vanuatu & wanted to say a HUGE thank you for doing my wedding make-up. It was perfect, just right for the day, I felt like a million dollars !!

I also wanted to say thank you so much for doing my mum-in-laws make-up, the cover up job you did on her bruising was fantastic, she looked beautiful & was so happy & you made her feel so comfortable.

Thank you for helping to make the day perfect, I really appreciate all that you did !!

Warm Regards, Steph Wood
