Meet Hayley

In 2005, at 19 years of age, I completed my studies, with distinction, in the beauty industry. Studying Nail Technology & Small Business Cert III and Beauty Services specialising in Makeup.

As a qualified beautician, nail technician and makeup artist, I soon realised my true passion was makeup. I went on to work as a bridal makeup artist and also gained experience doing makeup on set in the editorial fashion world.

In 2020, I completed the Natasha Bowling Masterclass and soon after, gave birth to my first baby, Mason. After time away from the workforce, I enrolled to refresh my makeup skills at the Melissa Sassine Academy, focusing again on bridal makeup where I graduated in May 2021 and have since been back in the industry full time. 

I am currently salon-based in Caringbah and not offering mobile services at this time, except for bridal parties. I am due to have my second baby in May 2024 and I will take some time off to enjoy with my family.

I've had my make-up done a few times over the years and I would have to say this is one of my favourites. The quality of the products Hayley uses shows as my make-up looked flawless without looking thick and It also lasted all night. I wouldn't hesitate to book Hayley again.

I am a recurring customer of Hayley's, I cannot recommend her enough. She has done my makeup up multiple times, notable occasions were as a bridesmaid in a wedding, for my own hens party and as a wedding guest. I have incredibly oily skin, and Hayley is a miracle worker as my makeup never slips or slides. Attached photos were taken 6 hours after she completed the makeup, and it had not moved or required a touch up. It lasted like this from 8am until well after midnight. Her products are great, she has a very hygienic process and she is easy to chat with. I wish she would follow me around with her magic wands!

Hayley has done my makeup on several occasions. Most recently she did a fully custom look for my graduation ceremony. Hayley walked me through every decision she made product-wise, and she ensured that I got the perfect makeup look to suit my style and personal skin condition. My makeup stayed on all day and photographed so well! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hayley for any special event makeup you need.
