Wedding Makeup + Hair

Want to look wedding-day gorgeous but don’t know who to TRUST with your makeup?

 

“Every communication I've ever had with Lillybeth has exceeded my expectations.  Her communication and professionalism is better than any business I've ever dealt with.” - Fiona McClure (2014)

“When planning my wedding I was trying to make it a beautiful yet cost-effective day.  Without a doubt the best money spent was having my makeup done by Lillybeth.” - Tracey Church (2012)

 

We've been 'Top Rated' on Weddingwise 7 years running!  This is based on the number of positive reviews we've received from Bay of Plenty brides and wedding customers - which is awesome news for you!  But it's not about makeup alone.  Although we wouldn't be highly rated if brides weren't happy with their makeup, these brides also rated us on the professionalism and communication they received.  So you'll look gorgeous AND have peace of mind that we're reliable and will reply to your emails, guide you through the process and will show up on the day - yay!

We’re a team of artists, so unlike most other makeup businesses, if something happens to your chosen artist that means she can’t fulfil your booking (emergency, sickness etc - we don’t take this lightly - but it has happened), you’re guaranteed a seamless replacement with no money hassles.   Regardless of whether you book myself personally for your makeup, or one of my team, you’ll deal with me through the whole process.

 

Feeling confused about what ‘look’ will suit you?

 

“I had no idea what I wanted as I wasn’t somebody who wore a lot of makeup so I just let Jenna do her own thing and I loved it.”  Linday Skyner (2015)

“Lillybeth had the knowledge to use my ideas and do what would look best for my skin type and face shape. She is definitely worth the amount she charges, and I would recommend her to all brides in the Bay of Plenty region and beyond.” - Melissa Hall (2016)

“Extremely happy with the level of information and service I received before, during and after my wedding day.  My artist Chrissie created exactly the look I was after, it was absolute perfection!! - Marina Breen (2015) 

 

Whatever your style or personality, your Lillybeth artist can advise on a look that totally suits your features and collaborate with you during and after your trial-run so you have supreme confidence on your special day.

With all of our team, you’ll get makeup that’s naturally glamorous with a touch of high fashion - nothing too ‘instagram’ crazy, but certainly not ‘no makeup makeup’ either.  Whether you choose to emphasise your understated beauty or be transformed into a knock-out beauty queen, at the hands of myself or one of the Lillybeth makeup artists, you’ll always look polished and camera-ready.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Award-winning Service

We've been 'Top Rated' on review website 'Weddingwise' 7 years in a row! We were the ONLY makeup service NZ wide to achieve 'Top Rated' status in 2016. These ratings from past Lillybeth brides cover not just quality of makeup, but professionalism and value for money. Many brides say they are impressed by our speedy emails and thorough communication.

Safety in Numbers

Beause we're a team, if something unexpected means your chosen artist can no longer fulfil your booking, we offer a seemless transition to a replacement makeup artist so you don't have the stress and hassle of searching, booking and paying again! And if you've already had your makeup trial-run, we offer you a re-trial free of charge.

Vegan-Friendly Option

If you have cruelty-free or vegan ethics, your makeup can reflect this when you book with Lillybeth personally. She offers a 100% cruelty free and vegan-friendly makeup option and can use all synthetic brushes so you can know no animals were harmed for your beauty. If this is you please specify when booking.

No Upsell Pressure

Some people offer makeup on the side of their main role as a sales rep or consultant for a beauty brand, or are an artist who's exclusive to one brand. But we're professional makeup artists and hairstylists, not salespeople. Because you pay a fair price for our specialist services, you won't be pressured to host a 'party' or purchase product.

  • Jessica Jean Wilson

    Personally, I love make up and I often wear it, so I had an idea of what I wanted, which Lillybeth was always very open to hear and on the day she couldn't have done a better job even though my skin was terrible due to lack of sleep for the whole wedding week and stress. I didn't have much concern though, knowing that I was in the hands of the best. I knew Lillybeth would make me look flawless and she did. I would recommend her to anyone!! - Bride Feb 2015

  • Melinda Abbot

    I booked Lillybeth via email from Australia based on just her online portfolio and the email contact that I’d had with her and she did not disappoint. The makeup lasted all day and night and was perfectly matched to all of our skin tones. I would recommend Lillybeth to any bride considering her for their wedding - Bride March 2016

  • Sargam Thammalla

    I never wear makeup so getting used to seeing myself in it was tough at first but Lillybeth listened to all my little requests and made the whole look perfect! She worked with my olive, brown Indian skin tone so well. The number of compliments I received was ridiculous! Lillybeth, you are an absolute star! - Bride April 2016

  • Carrie Callaghan

    I booked Lillybeth two years in advance from the UK. I wanted my most important suppliers locked in early to be sure not to miss out. It was a gamble booking a MUA from pics online only and I didn’t have my trial until three weeks pre wedding. Despite the previous worry Lillybeth was fast and responsive to all my questions and following my trial I was sure I'd made the right choice. - Bride Feb 2016

    I came out of my trial-run knowing I had made the perfect choice! With very little instruction on my part, Lillybeth did such an amazing job at getting it exactly how I like my makeup to be done. She did an equally amazing job on my 4 bridesmaids, Mother and 3 nieces. Cannot wait for my next occasion to have her do it again - Bride Jan 2015

Lillybeth was amazing to deal with and I loved her wedding tips from her free ebook. I have no problems in recommending Lillybeth to future brides - Bride March 2014
