Behind the brushes
I'm Abbie, the naturally made up makeup artist!
I don't pull out the full Kardashian often, mostly you will find me like this - glowing skin, brows, mascara and a 'touch of gloss' happy smile.
In there beside me are my little people Zachery and Charlie, (altho not quite so tiny as this these days - need to update the family snaps).
If not having adventures with these guys my happy place is working with brush in hand.
I have a wealth of experience as a professional makeup artist – but weddings are my thing!
From a colourful background in theatrics, to the high energy of London fashion-week I have worked with some of the world's leading artistry brands. But it's that feeling you get when you know you have truly helped someone feel wonderful about themselves. When they look in the mirror and they smile because they like what they see. ELEGANT . NATURAL . BEAUTY - gets me every time!
I love bridal makeup. Weddings are the best!
During 2016 I was honoured (and very excited) to be awarded the title of Wedding Industry Awards (NZ) - Outstanding Makeup Artist.
Mine is a mobile service to the Waikato and Bay of Plenty. Meaning I will arrive at your accommodations on the day, bringing everything needed with me. Allowing you to relax and enjoy getting ready with your bridal party and loved ones.
Bridal hair stylists: I know some good ones and it really does make your morning run so much smoother when we work alongside each other regularly, so do mention if you need a recommendation when placing your enquiry for availability.
“I kept saying on the morning of my wedding that I had the dream team getting myself and my girls ready to walk down the isle.
Thank you so much Abbie, you were just all around amazing!
I really could not have asked for better xx.”
