Why Yvette?

Why Me? 

I am the is the preferred makeup artist of choice for the top bridal venues in the Southern Highlands and South Coast. Bendooley Estate, Jaspers Berry, Milton Park, Terrara House, Hopewood House all recommend me as their preferred supplier.

I am the preferred makeup artist to Sydney’s socialite set when they stay in their weekenders in beautiful Bowral, Berrima, Berry, Gerringong Kiama and Milton and other areas of the Southern Highlands and South Coast NSW. 

And the preferred makeup artist for many of the top photographers such as Hilary Cam, Fusion Photography, Dan Cartwright photography, Manuel Vicente, Magnus Agren,  photography and Cloudface photography just to name a few.

Although I have now lived in the Southern Highlands of NSW for 13 years, specializing in Wedding makeup in the Southern Highlands and South Coast of NSW, I am Sydney born and bred and was professionally trained in Sydney.

I started my makeup career in fashion.

By still working as a commercial and fashion makeup artist today, I keep up with the latest makeup application techniques and hairstyles.

I always work in High definition, so understand the importance of my makeup looking perfectly flawless, yet light and dewy and luminous.

This helps me deliver the best wedding makeup and hair to my brides that lasts without being caked on. My makeup is loved as much by grooms who just see a more radiant beautiful version of their bride to be, as it is loved by photographers, who appreciate my makeup being clean, fresh and flawless so that they do not have to do any work in photoshop.

Although my makeup application is light handed, and it allows your skin to shine through, my makeup lasts all night without smearing or smudging, thanks to years of experience in having to apply makeup so it lasts under hot lights and often unforgiving conditions.

As a holistic beauty therapist and wellness expert, I work with you to look your radiant best for your wedding day from inside and out.

Don’t take my word for it, look at what the professionals have to say!     


So, why not work with the best in the business?

I qualified from the prestigious Sydney College of Makeup Art, having already worked for Revlon for two years as their makeup artist for TV shows and events. I later represented Revlon at June Dally Watkins, teaching makeup and skincare to the college’s students. I was Elite Italia  Model Management’s preferred makeup artist, as well as being one of their makeup artists on their books. I  also worked as International Model’s preferred makeup artist specializing in fashion parades.

I  also worked as International Model’s preferred makeup artist specializing in fashion parades.

I trained as a beauty therapist at the Ella Bache College of Skin & Beauty Therapy, one of Australia’s premier beauty therapy schools, and was trained as a stylist by The Image Makers.

I still also consults with wellness spas, assisting them to set up their operations to include the delivery of holistic beauty services.

I write feature articles for Professional Beauty, a leading industry magazine, and have also written training manuals for several skincare companies. I have taught skincare, makeup, haircare, wardrobe, etiquette, and deportment at June Dally Watkins, Elite Italia Model Management, International Models, and John Robert Powers, and have worked as a valued advisor and trainer on Val Stevenson’s parades and promotions.
