Hi, I'm Veronica, a Makeup Artist, Beauty Therapist and Nail Technician and mum of four, based in Pukekohe. I originally trained as a Beauty Therapist and Nail Technician in 2006, through the Joyce Blok Campus of Elite International School of Beauty and Spa Therapies. I received my CIDESCO diploma as the top student in practical and I have been working in the industry ever since. I have a passion for makeup and had been meaning to train in makeup for years, and following the birth of my daughter I finally had the chance to up-skill. I completed a certificate in Fashion Makeup in 2012 through SRA, receiving my certificate with Merit. I'm inspired by so many things when it comes to makeup, but most of all it's about the client I am working on, and what they like or would like to try. There is something very rewarding about being about to achieve the perfect makeup that someone has been dreaming about for their special occasion and I love getting to try new things or doing something different. Over the years I have been working in the Beauty Industry, I have done many makeups for Balls and Weddings, including many for family and friends. I pride myself on meeting the requirements of my clients, and helping them look their best for their special occasion, whatever it may be. I feel that the prep work is just as important as the makeup for an event, and using my beauty therapy skills have incorporated many treatments with the makeup to be as comprehensive as possible. This includes spray tanning, of which I have done 1000's of while working for a wholesaler specialising in tanning products, as well as nail treatments such as the OPI Gel Color application and Gelish Xpress Dip.
Now that I have two children off to primary school and two in at daycare I have added facepainting to the services that I offer. I have a full kit of professional face painting products and a willingness to give anything a go, if you give me a theme I will come up with a selection of designs to match.
So if you are looking for a makeup artist please email me or contact me via the Facebook page and we can discuss what you are after. I am always happy to answer any questions and will go out of my way to make sure my clients have the best possible experience having their makeup done.
I also work in with photographers. A very big thank you goes to the AMAZING Jay Stacey from Cheeky Moments Photography for the portrait of me. Jay does amazing Maternity, Newborn, Family and Women's portraiture, I totally recommend her :-)
