Tell us about yourself..

I’m a freelance makeup artist based in Auckland. I love my job, being creative, keeping fit, and patting all the dogs.

How would you best describe your signature make up look or style?

Natural glam, warm neutral tones with fresh skin and a focus on the eyes and lashes.

Favourite makeup hack or tip

Bronzer makes the best warm brown eyeshadow.

3 things you can’t live without... 

Sunscreen, sneakers, coffee.

How do you balance freelancing and keeping active?

I can’t have a structured exercise schedule so I head to the gym whenever I have a late start or early finish, and on days off I love getting outdoors and going for hikes.

Who or what inspires you everyday?

I’m inspired by art, colour, music, nature. And anyone who takes a chance on themselves and is living life outside of the 9-5 grind.
