Beauty guidance that transcends the skin’s surface

Makeup and ‘natural beauty’ are not mutually exclusive. In fact, I truly believe that makeup can support an expression of your best, most confident self. Which is why I focus on makeup as a tool to amplify inner radiance. Because when you feel confident, you glow. When you feel beautiful, it shows - and that is the true definition of natural beauty.

My approach

I look at makeup in a very unique way, reading a face the same way any picture or photo is. It’s an innate human trait to read a face to establish certain judgements. The more even-toned and symmetrical a face is, the healthier, more rested, or more trustworthy we appear. However, I am not here to erase you. Your skin, your features, your freckles, lines, and marks are the map of you. Who you are, how you got here. That’s beauty right there.

When I look at you, I will not be looking for what doesn’t match today’s beauty criteria. I will be looking for what is your own pure beauty. I ask you what you like most and least about yourself so we can enhance what you want to bring to the forefront and recess what makes you feel self-conscious.

You do not need to know all the techniques for every face on earth. You need and want to know the techniques that are the right ones and that will work for your face. That’s what I am here for.

We’ll slightly trick the eye in making your eyes look even, your eyebrows at the same height, the hump on your nose more discreet (should that matter to you) ... but we will do this by showcasing what YOU want to put forward.
Not by erasing you.

Support your values

I value transparency and sustainability. As a good to know, all skincare products are clean, from New Zealand or Australian-made skincare brands, with 99% coming from women-owned companies. I also do not stock products, which means that when you come in for your skin rendez-vous, the contract between you and me is the following:
You will get an outstanding, luxe, cocooning experience and at the end, I will ask you if you’d like to come again, talk about the service option I know is the best fit for you and that’s it. I will never put you on the spot to buy products.

Advocating for a better beauty industry

I know that lifestyles, personal priorities and skin all change. But for most of us, what remains true is values. We’re seeking better choices - for our families, for ourselves, and for our planet. Which is why I advocate for clean, conscious beauty products that support the needs of your skin in a healthy, non-toxic way, no matter your age or stage.
