I am freshly in love…

Posted on: Friday, May 17, 2013


photo taken by the fabulous Lisa Diederich

…with our life over here in Australia and with my job.
With the change of seasons and the crisp cool days. With Sydney and the colours.
I love being a makeup artist, I am in love with teaching people about skin care, I am passionate about nutrition and I rediscovered my love for writing.
I am in love with weddings and everyone I get to work with.

Lately I had the chance to collaborate with the wonderful White Magazine and I am writing a series of guest posts for them as Beauty Expert. Read the first part of my Get The Glow Series here and try my favourite smoothie recipes.
I will share my insider tips on how to achieve a healthy radiant skin step by step.
Thanks White Team, for inviting me as a guest!

happy change of seasons

Posted on: Friday, May 17, 2013

Inspired by all the beautiful coloured leaves here in Sydney I have recently teamed up with Gentlemen Take Pictures for a male fashion editorial. See some more on my website here, if you like.
It’s time for soups and hot water bottles now, and I no longer go swimming at the beach.
The seasons have changed, and I love Sydney for it’s blue skies and sunny afternoons.
We also finally ordered a couch and settling up for general coziness.
I am somehow looking forward to my first Winter over here.
Happy change of seasons, where ever you are.

Grooming and Gentlemen

Posted on: Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I have lately collaborated with Gentlemen Take Pictures for a couple of shoots, with some great results.
It was a great change to be able to some professional male grooming and male hairstyling work in between
all the gorgeous brides and bridesmaids in the peek of the wedding season over the last months.
These studio shoots were great fun and those aspiring male supermodels were a dream to work with.
Check out more of my male editorial work on my website here.

Sydney Sunrise Street Style

Posted on: Tuesday, April 9, 2013


The other day I got up way before sunrise, for an early morning photoshoot by the beach. It was lovely being able to see the sun peeking up above the water and while I was doing the makeup on location in the dark, (with some work lights obvsly) it turned out to be a great shoot. More on the edgy street style side as opposed to my romantic, dreamy wedding shoots.
The model was a great talent Shana who is signed with The Agency Models in Sydney. The photos are by the aspiring fashion photographer Jack Grayson.
There is something magical about working in Sydney, while I am as super busy and working the early and the long hours it feels like the sun recharges me in the meantime.

A laid back garden wedding

Posted on: Tuesday, April 9, 2013


It was such a pleasure being part of this super cool couples wedding.
Vicky & Warren and their cheeky pup Pancho the dachshound had a super laid back wedding
in the park round the corner from their house. They were just the kind of people you want to hang out with!
Plenty of DIY, fun games and a artsy vibe made this wedding really stand out.
The gorgeous photos were taken by the uber-talented Jo Bartholomew
The bride was after a super natural no-makeup makeup look, as she usually doesn’t wear makeup, she just wanted
her skin to look even and nice in the photographs and a simple loose side bun for the hair.
And so we did! In these photos you don’t even notice any makeup at all, exactly what she was after.
Can you spot me in the first photo?
Congratulations to this gorgeous couple. And check out even more photos of this wedding at Jo’s blog you will see all the super fun shots over there!

Farewell London

Posted on: Thursday, November 29, 2012

One of the last makeup jobs I have done before leaving London for our new home Sydney, was this Editorial just published in Papercut Magazine.

It is wedding season! And besides doing make up for beautiful brides,
which I love, I have recently done several beauty and fashion editorials.
My make up portfolio is growing and growing and I can’t tell you how much I love my job. The shoot above was with a fabulous team, see more images here.
As much as I love life in London lately I am also very exciting about our move to Sydney.
For me that means making new contacts and start networking again,
but it is exciting. Becoming a Sydney based make up artist, will bring new adventures and challenges.

Happy Easter Everyone!
Though I have mainly been brainstorming new ideas and concepts as well as feeding myself delicious cakes and coffees, I have also been doing a lot of make-up designs and great collaborations lately. And it seems like outdoor location has started too, which is extra exciting.
The sneaky preview below was a project with the great photographer Claire Huish and the fantastic Stylist Rosie Williams. Next to the tall beautiful model I look so very short.

I have been busy lately.
So I really feel I have to catch up with you guys.
