I have known Yvette for over five years and in that time have had the privilege of working with her on many weddings. As a photographer who provides a luxury service to my clients, I rely heavily on the professionalism and skills of the make-up artist to contribute to the quality of my images. I require work to be done quickly and efficiently and to a schedule so that I have sufficient time with the bride to do my work.
Yvette is just such a makeup artist and for this reason, she is one of my preferred suppliers whom I recommend to all my clients. She brings experience, talent, professionalism, a high standard of service, and good humor to every shoot. She knows how to make the client feel relaxed and confident and the result of her work is always tasteful, elegant, subtle and beautiful – everything I need to make my brides look gorgeous in their photos.
I highly recommend Yvette for any make-up or stylist project, she is the best in the business.
Yvette and the Ethix team are as good as it gets, they are true masters of natural makeup. Every time we have worked with Ethix the makeup is elegant, natural and classic and our brides always look radiant and absolutely stunning.
Working as a photographer we love that Yvette makes our job easy – we don’t have to spend hours retouching skin, lips, eyes or hair because brides always look flawless with not a hair out of place. I love that they don’t do radical makeup transformations, our brides are recognizable just better, more beautiful versions of themselves.
The makeup is always flawless and elegant, it lasts all day and night and it always matches skin tones perfectly. (Unfortunately, this can’t be said for everyone in the industry.)
More importantly, Yvette brings more than makeup to the wedding day, her beautiful nature ensures our brides always feel pampered, gorgeous and relaxed – I’ve never had a stressed bride with Yvette on the team. She is always is punctual and runs on time and I can’t emphasize enough the importance and value of starting a wedding with the girls feeling confident, gorgeous and running on time. We love working with Yvette and the whole Ethix team they are our absolute favorite in the Southern Highlands!
It is natural, well blended, and each face is perfectly accentuated and subtly made up. They are always on time, professional and make my job a delight when I start work.
Yvette’s makeup is awesome, I never have to clean it up and it looks just as great in real life as it does in photos, she makes my job so easy!
Yvette and her girls at Ethix are continually my favourite makeup artists to deal with. I have been a wedding photographer for over 9 years full time and the makeup the girls from Ethix do is, in my humble opinion, the best around. And I have witnessed ALOT of makeup artists work.

I photoshop a lot of my work, being a perfectionist with what I give my clients. By having amazing makeup like Ethix, I find my job a whole lot easier as I don’t have to fix bad makeup in post (I.e photoshop)
Her work is the best and everyone that gets married should be booking her services. I cannot recommend highly enough!
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 I am informed that Yvette and her team will be there, I know that the 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.

I love the fact that I do not have a lot of makeup on, yet I look great on camera.
You made Bridie look beautiful.

I have been in the advertising and marketing business globally for over 30 years. In that time I’ve traveled the world and had the good fortune to work with some of the best global brands and clients you could wish for. Over the years I can honestly count on one hand the people I enjoyed working with, trusted and who respected my clients and my agency’s business. Yvette is one such person, dedicated to her craft and always going beyond the brief and expectations set.

She’s a breath of fresh air that colours the set, is a magician with make-up and a savvy stylist to boot! If that’s not enough, watch her settle that difficult talent while transforming their grumpiness into radiant beauty.

Photography shoots can often become frantic. Yvette is a breath of fresh air on the set and is always a pleasure to have around. From counseling to exquisite makeup she truly is a professional.

Your ability to find solutions to a sudden insertion of a lip piercing is astonishing, brava. I’ll have you on my next feature for sure.

You have a way with children, you manage to get the best out of them.

If Yvette cannot make you look gorgeous no one can.
Patrick – Owner and Stylist United Culture.
The digital post-production of photographs necessitates taking a very close look at the subject matter. Photographs of Yvette’s bridal and commercial work never fail to amaze me. The makeup is subtle yet the effect is absolutely sensational. She’s an artist of the highest caliber.

They say all brides are beautiful, and from meeting with brides before their big day and seeing them in all their splendor on the day just amazes me. But I can always tell when they have had their make up done by Yvette. What she can do with sometimes, little to work with is amazing. Her brides are flawless, their confidence soars and they come to me in really high spirits from spending a fun morning with her … not only because she produces the highest quality work around but she brings with her an exuberance and fun energy that sets the mood for the whole day.
