I am an experienced makeup artist based in Palmerston North, New Zealand.
I offer makeup services for all occasions. I look forward to ball + bridal season every year. Being chosen to make you up on such a special day is always such an honour - seeing women light up when they see themselves gives me so much joy!
I choose to carry products in my kit that are tried and tested and that will work beautifully on differing skin tones and types. I make conscious choices when it comes to purchasing products with no nasties that are cruelty free where possible. I am constantly replacing and updating the kit with high end + professional makeup products. Brands I love include NARS, Becca, MAC, Benefit, Jeffree Star, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ColourPop, Morphe + more. I also carry a selection of high quality, natural mink look lashes available for application on the day.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
As soon as possible to avoid missing out. I take bookings up to one year in advance.
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?
Please allow up to an hour for your appointment, most will take around 45 minutes.
HOW LONG BEFORE MY WEDDING DO YOU RECOMMEND HAVING A TRIAL?
I usually recommend around a month out, however it's a great idea to have it done on the day of another event! Why not kill two birds and have your trial the same day as your Hens or Engagement Photoshoot, if you're having one!
WILL MY MAKEUP LAST ALL DAY AND HOW CAN I RETOUCH MY LIPSTICK?
With any makeup application service Jess provides a free sample of the lipstick used so that you are able to reapply if needed throughout the day or evening.
WHAT BRAND OF MAKEUP DO YOU USE?
My kit consist of 90% high end products such as MAC, Nars, Anastasia Beverly Hills, YSL, Jeffree Star, Kat Von D, Dose of Colours, Napoleon, Tarte, and many more. I also love some of the cheaper drugstore brands - when quality isn't compromised for price it's a win, win for all!
DO YOU RECOMMEND A SPRAY TAN?
It is not essential that you get a spray tan for your event, but it can look gorgeous when done by a professional. If you haven’t had a spray tan before, I would recommend a trial before your event to ensure you are happy with the end result. I am very particular with spray tans (being extremely pale myself) and have tried them all, you can rest assured The Glow Getter uses the best products available on the market!
DO YOU RECOMMEND EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
WHAT SHOULD I BRING/WEAR TO MY MAKEUP TRIAL?
Photos of makeup looks you like
Photos of the hairstyle you’ll be having
Photos similar to your bouquet colourings
Photos or fabric samples of yours and your bridesmaid(s) dresses
Wear a plain white top (if you are wearing white on your wedding day)
Bring a camera so you can see what your makeup looks like in photos
