Leonie was an absolute star on my wedding day! She not only gave me the wedding makeup of my dreams, but also worked her magic on my mum and five bridesmaids. We were all blown away by her incredible talent and attention to detail. From the moment Leonie arrived, she brought the perfect vibe. Her infectious energy made getting ready an absolute blast, and we couldn't have asked for a more fun and relaxed morning. As for the makeup itself, we were all in awe of the stunning looks Leonie created for us! Each of us felt amazing with our glam, and the makeup lasted flawlessly from morning till night. I can't recommend Leonie enough to anyone looking for a makeup artist who delivers impeccable results and also adds a touch of magic to the entire experience. Thank you, Leonie, for making us feel absolutely radiant on such a special day!

Thank you Tessa for entrusting me on your special day. You were all a dream to work with and am so happy your were all pleased.

I found Leonie through Easy Weddings and I couldn’t have been happier with my makeup on my wedding day. I met with Leonie 3 months prior for a trial. As someone who knows nothing about makeup, Leonie worked with me to find out what I liked/didn’t like, and helped me to work out a routine to help my makeup last the entire day. Leonie did the makeup for me and my bridal party, as well as my mum. She worked with everyone to find a makeup look that suited them, while also working within my vision which was minimal glam. Everyone was really happy with their makeup, even my friend who has never had a makeup artist be able to properly match her skin before! I would highly recommend Leonie for your next event, you won't be left disappointed.

Leonie was amazing from the moment I booked with her right through to when she finished touching up myself and my bridesmaids. She was great at communicating and very responsive from the get go. I loved my makeup on the day and so did my bridesmaids! We all had a beautiful natural glow and glam look which Leonie nailed! What I also loved about Leonie is she helped my feel relaxed on my did day. Naturally I had a bit of jitters but that went away as Leonie is lovely and chatty which really helped take my mind of things!

What if I don't want professional hair and make up?

I never wear make up except for special occasions. I don't like the look of fake eyelashes and caked on make up. I am wanting a fairly simple hair style and natural looking makeup for my wedding. I have 2 sisters with some good quality hair straighteners/curlers/etc and intend to get some good quality make up, do trial runs and keep things fairly simple but also nicely done. We have always done each other hair & makeup at previous weddings we have been to. But is this wise? What are the downsides of DIYing our hair and makeup?

Leonie Makeup

Hi Eliza,

It's completely understandable that you have a preference for a more natural and simple look for your wedding, and opting to do your own hair and makeup with the help of your sisters and quality products is a personal choice that can add a special touch to your day. There are certainly advantages to DIYing your hair and makeup, such as the comfort of working with familiar tools and the joy of sharing the experience with your sisters.

However, it's essential to be aware of some potential downsides to consider. Professional makeup artists have expertise in choosing products that will withstand the duration of the event and look great both in person and in photos. They understand how makeup behaves under different lighting conditions and how to enhance your features in a way that may not be immediately intuitive.

While there's no right or wrong choice, hiring a professional makeup artist offers certain benefits. They have a keen eye for color selection, can customize the look to complement your features, and are experienced in creating styles that will last throughout the day. Additionally, being pampered by a professional can add a special and relaxing touch to your wedding day experience.

If you decide to go the professional route, it's recommended to do thorough research. Look at portfolios, read reviews, and choose someone whose style resonates with your vision. This will help ensure that your makeup artist understands your preferences and can deliver the look you desire. Ultimately, it's your special day, and the choice between DIY and professional assistance should align with what makes you feel most comfortable and beautiful.

I hope this helps. Feel free to get in touch for a no obligation chat. Happy to assist ??

Do you charge more for New Year's Eve weddings?

Would we be looking at surcharges or a different price list for hair and makeup if our wedding was on nye?

Leonie Makeup

Normally a New Years Eve booking may incur a surcharge. This is at the discretion of each supplier. Personally  it is dependant on group size and if there is long distance travel required. 

Should I get eyelash extensions before the wedding?

I haven't had them before so looking for advice on a trial, or how early to get them before the wedding. Thank you!

Leonie Makeup

Personally I prefer my brides not too as I am very particular about placement lenght and fullness of the lashes. As a makeup artist I choose lashes that suit the eye shape to enhance and correct eye indiviuals eye shape,  with lash extensions it can limit you from these options. I am not however opposed to them, it is a personal choice of the  bride to do so. If  you are going to get lash extension then be sure to have an expert who understands eye shapes and places your  lashes to suit your individual eye shape.
