Position: Makeup Artist
Specialty; Glowy, fresh, & natural glam
Hometown: Nelson, New Zealand
Beauty background: As a 13 year old girl in my high school in New Zealand, I had a vision of becoming a Makeup Artist in Hollywood. So I worked for 2-3 jobs during school to save up for Makeup school. When i was 17, I dropped out of high school and moved to Australia by myself to attend Makeup School. At 19, I moved once again by myself - this time to Los Angeles to pursue my dream. I assisted anyone I could and gradually started to work on weddings on the weekends. It’s now been 13 years that I’ve been living here in LA and I still love doing Makeup so much. I start to miss it after just a few days off haha. I love working with a mix of entertainment industry clients and weddings, I also sometimes teach makeup classes.
Favorite thing about my job: I love the connection with people, meeting different people from all walks of life and hearing their stories. I also really love the art of makeup and how looking our best really transforms how we feel on the inside!
Career highlights: Being flown all over the world to do what I love, including Italy and Jamaica, Working with some really iconic athletes, actors and music stars. Seeing my work up on Billboards across LA and in Times Square NYC after having those things on my goals list for years.
Current favorite bridal trends: I love fresh glowy healthy skin, brushed up brows and individual lashes!
Top 3 products/tools you can’t live without: My favorite seamless Individual Lashes, Weleda Skin Food, damp Beauty Blenders for flawless foundation application.
Guilty pleasures: Traveling to new places, checking out cool restaurants, personal development and a good book!
'Phoebe! Thank you so so much for everything today! Honestly, you made it such a dream and so much fun, and the hair and makeup looks were absolutely PERFECT!'
'I loved my makeup and it stayed on and flawless all night!!! Thank you so much again for making me look so perfect today!!!! This is the best makeup I've ever had. You are an absolute wizard.'
Phoebe did a great job listening to what each of us wanted and made sure we all looked our best throughout the day. She was very friendly and kind, which made it really fun to spend many hours with her prior to my wedding.
I was able to do a trial make-up run a few months before my wedding which allowed me to be familiar with Phoebe and her work. This also allowed me to make any adjustments for my final wedding day makeup. I also had Phoebe do the makeup for 4 of my family members/wedding party. Many people had not had their makeup done professionally before and all had a very positive and enjoyable experience.
