About Yvette


Thank you for visiting my website! I look forward to meeting you!

I am an eco-ethical vegan cruelty-free freelance professional makeup artist, holistic beauty therapist, stylist/image consultant and nutritionist living in the gorgeous Southern Highlands.

I believe that natural cruelty-free products are the ultimate luxury, I do not use products that compromise your health because to me that is not a beautiful thing.

I am passionate about saving this planet, being compassionate to animals, and leaving as small a footprint as possible, so my products are all vegan, and if not vegan, they are cruelty-free and I know exactly where the ingredients have been sourced.

All my makeup products are hand-picked and tried out on my overly sensitive face before adding them to my kit. I have a range of foundations suited for all skin types, and all levels of coverage.

Every product is cruelty-free, vegan, mineral and organic wherever possible. I am proud to wear the badge of eco-ethical wedding supplier!

Although I have now lived in the Southern Highlands of NSW for 20 years,  I am Sydney born and bred and was professionally trained in Sydney.

I started my makeup career in fashion as a makeup artist with Elite Model Management.

I am a trained stylist & image consultant – so I know which colours to choose for your eye makeup, lips, and cheeks to enhance your features so your ‘natural’ makeup doesn’t make you look flat – but glamorous, yet completely naturally beautiful. I was lucky enough to finish my makeup training with a woman who was renowned for her ability to make eyes look bigger, lips fuller and cheeks more defined without the use of huge amounts of makeup.

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

Although my makeup application is light-handed, and it allows your skin to shine through, my makeup lasts – thanks to years of experience in having to apply makeup so it lasts under hot lights and often unforgiving conditions.

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 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 and image consultant by The Image Makers.

Image maker/Stylist

As a beauty therapist, makeup artist, image consultant & stylist, I have worked with many of the prestigious image-makers, including Robert Pante (stylist to the American Presidents and their wives) and The Image Makers.

Training the trainers

I was the National Training Manager for Pelactiv Skincare and once I left Sydney I trained makeup artists to my high standards to become part of my team.  I spent many years before Pelactiv and after training beauty therapists in holistic beauty and wellness treatments. I also consulted with wellness spas, assisting them to set up their operations to include a fluid delivery of holistic beauty services.

An industry voice

I used to 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. I now write beauty and wellness blogs at The Ethical Beauty Expert
