Outside the wedding industry there aren't really any awards to win for makeup application in NZ, so I'll let my past customers speak for me.
I've made up teenagers off to school balls, executives going on stage at industry events, models, wedding guests, MC's, bodybuilders in bikinis, business owners and employees for new 'headshots', daughters, mums, grandmothers...why not you?
With experience working with women of most ages, colours and skin types, I'll enhance your best features using quality, photo-ready makeup to bring out the best your mother gave ya! You’ll be free to focus on enjoying your 'red carpet moment' without making touch-ups.
I had an amazing night - all of my friends commented on our flawless makeup! I danced the night away and didn’t end up going to bed till 5:30! Woke up the next morning and looked as though I had just had my makeup applied!!
I loved every part of it. I felt so confident, like a different person. Thank you so so so much. I am definitely having you again next year and maybe even my wedding. 😉 Sarah Dodson (Te Puke High School ball, July 2012)
Even though I don't really like dressing up, the ball night was really fun. I really liked the makeup you done for me - made me feel confident. It looked so professionally done and I didn't feel over-done or under-done, it was great. I got so many compliments. Shanei O’Brien, Ohauiti (Tauranga Girls’ College Ball, May 2012)
Thanks Lillybeth. The makeup was beautiful and accompanied with my dress was a winning combination. I felt beautiful and you were very easy to work with (despite the distractions). I will be sure to keep you in mind if another occasion comes up. Thanks again. Carissa Hawes, Tauranga (Wedding Guest, March 2010)
Hey Lillybeth! The ball was so wicked I had the most amazing night! Thank you sooo much, the makeup was incredible =) So many people commented, and I got hundreds of compliments on the little crystals, too! Unfortunately I missed out on "Belle of the Ball" by ONE VOTE! Brittany Sternberg, Tauranga (Otumoetai College Ball, June 2009)
This year I had high expectations for my senior ball and so I wanted everything, including my makeup, to be perfect! I had had my makeup done a number of times and had never been really impressed so I was very cynical towards makeup artists.
However, my opinion was radically changed, thanks to Lillybeth, as my makeup turned out like a dream. I loved everything from the look down to the products she used. I received so many compliments about my makeup and it stayed on the whole night!
After the ball I ordered some foundation off Lillybeth and have been using it ever since. It has good coverage and is incredibly light at the same time - the perfect combination. Overall, an A+++ experience, I can't wait for Lillybeth to do my makeup again! Annie Hollister-Jones, Tauranga (Bethlehem College Ball, October 2009)
I absolutely loved the mask. The ball was great and the make up was the talk of the ball... Jessie Wilkinson-Webb, Auckland. (Masquerade Ball, Tauranga, June 2009)
Thanks once again for making me look so fab! My make up stayed all night, and I’m so pleased to say I looked amazing in all my photos! All thanks to you. You were totally lovely, and I’ve never felt so pretty! So thanks a million for helping make my night 🙂 Sarah Webb, Tauranga (‘Outrageous Fortune’-themed Party, June 2010)
The makeup was amazing and I will definitely recommend you to all my girlfriends. My boyfriend said I looked absolutely beautiful so I have you to thank for that. Rebecca, 15, Tauranga (Private Party, June 2010)
I have an unusually complicated complexion. I have an abundance of unused foundations because salespeople in pharmacies and department stores just cannot pick the right shade for me! So I’d written myself off as a lost cause and effectively given up on makeup. As a woman in business I need a professional look, and this includes makeup.
I had never met or even seen Lillybeth before as I live in Cambridge. She took one look at me and immediately knew which foundation would suit me, as well as colours and textures of all the other products (eyeshadow, blusher, bronzer, concealer, lipstick etc). That had never, ever happened before. I was so impressed.
Lillybeth lives more than an hour from me, but I will now travel to her to get my makeup done whenever a professional touch is required for a special occasion, because she’s worth it – and so am I.
Lillybeth knows the tricks to make a woman look (and feel) great! Lillybeth is a perfectionist. She has a trained eye that most of us don’t have - she really knew how to make the most of my features, while ensuring that I still looked natural. Because I did a lesson with her, I now know how to achieve this look as well. For a devout “makeup-phobe”, this is pretty good progress.

Thank you so much for a lovely Stage-Magic makeover experience on Saturday morning, we had so much fun. It was great that you had Brooke there to do our hair she was awesome too! Tag teaming it worked perfectly, especially when we were pushing it for a tight deadline.
The makeup worked a treat. My supporters said when I walked out on stage I looked like a doll, my mother thought I looked like a model and everyone loved the makeup – they said I stood out from the rest.
The makeup lasted very well! Even when we had to go back on stage in the evening. It was fantastic. Having the complete package: hair, makeup, accessories and a nice tan, surely gave me the confidence I so needed to get on that stage. I felt so pretty and glamorous - it was great!!!

I absolutely loved my makeup, thank you! It lasted until Sunday which was the best bit! Grace Burman, Tauranga (Bethlehem College Ball, September 2010)
Just wanted to thank you so much for the makeup today. It was gorgeous - you made me feel like a model! Jo Stirling, Tauranga (Business Head shots for Stirling Accounting Ltd, November 2010)
