HELLO, IT'S ME...

Growing up I was taught to cherish and care for the skin you were in. 'Cleanse, tone and moisturise' have been part of my daily ritual from an early teen to today and it's not until now, at 32 years young, that I have a true appreciation for skin care and loving the skin you're in (thanks Mum!).

In my early twenties I really discovered my love for makeup. I remember going to buy my first foundation and walking out of the store with the whole kit and caboodle! I should have been worried that I'd just spent my whole fortnights pay on makeup but I had no regrets and saw it as a great investment. From that moment on there was no turning back!

With a background in traditional, digital and social media marketing, I have dabbled in different jobs and industries but it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I decided to turn my love and passion for makeup into a career. I began studying makeup artistry and got a job in the industry to enhance my skills and knowledge.

Today I am proud of my beautiful, well rounded makeup collection and I feel privileged that I get to share that with others either via my knowledge or by my makeup artistry skills and making people feel beautiful for their special occasion.

You never stop learning and it's never too late to try something new so keep your mind strong and your brow game stronger and join me on my beautiful adventure.

Testimonials

I am humbled and heartened by the lovely feedback I get from my clients.

“Marisa did my hair and make up for the Starlight Foundation Star ball which was so awesome. One stop shop. The make up was light and flawless. It felt really lovely on my skin. I danced and partied until 3am and my make up stayed exactly the same! I would recommend Marisa to all my friends. Thank you so much for making me look and feel beautiful.”

“I couldn’t have been happier with the finished result!! Marisa did a perfect job on both myself and my bridesmaid! Thank you Marisa!!!”
— Lauren, May 2016
“Marisa did my make up for my sisters engagement party! She did such a fantastic job. She matched my foundation colour to my skin perfectly, she had so many shades to choose from which was really important to me because I’m so pastey! I wanted to wear some false lashes and she had a great selection to choose from and they lasted all night long!! I can even wear them again another night if I like! I will definitely be calling her back for another event soon! I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks for doing such a great job last weekend.”

“Marisa did my makeup for a wedding and whilst I had an insanely tight time frame she was able to create a fabulous look that matched my outfit perfectly. I got great compliments all night! I can’t wait for the next function, I need to go to get my makeup done again!”

“The make up Marisa did for my 30th Birthday was amazing. It matched my dress perfectly and looked awesome. I would never hesitate using Marisa again for any event or function where I would need my make up done again, nor would I hesitate to recommend her to anyone who was looking for a highly talented make up artist for any occasion.”
