Hi! My name is Inèz. I’m a professionally trained makeup artist and hair stylist, originally in The Netherlands and now in Australia (also followed training in both countries).
Known as a perfectionist and wanting my work to be impeccable, I believe good communication is key to a happy client. Together with the client (you!) I will determine what look they’re after and what suits them, ensuring they are 100% satisfied with the end result. Over 40 Google reviews and over 60 Facebook reviews show how much my client’s love for the finished looks. I’m known for the natural looks I often do, whether that be for actors in productions or private clients wanting to look fresh, beautiful, glowy and/or glamorous, but ‘like themselves’.
In my first year as a makeup artist I was able to participate in the Benelux Beauty Awards and received third prize in my first ever competition. In 2014, while travelling through Australia, I also won the Brisbane RAWards Makeup Artist of the Year.
My experience includes brides, bridesmaids, film, TV, commercials, music videos, lookbooks, formal and special occasion, photoshoots, male to female transformation, workshops, masterclasses, 1-on-1 advice, editorial and runway.
Another passion I have is working cruelty-free and sustainable. I care about animals and about the environment. In my kit you can find good quality, for a large part professional, makeup brands and of which 99.9% cruelty-free, with brands such as RCMA, Face Atelier, Viseart, Furless, Kryolan, Bodyography, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Shanghai Suzy, Dose of Colors, Makeup Geek, Maqpro, Makeup Weapons, Furless Cosmetics, DeLorenzo and White Sands. Completely vegan makeup is also available. I also try to create less waste, for example by using less disposable and more reusable tools, non-plastic q-tips and towels instead of tissues where possible.
Outside of paid work, I use my skills by volunteering for Look Good Feel Better (helping Australians face cancer with confidence) and My Wedding Wish (gifting weddings to the terminally ill).
At my little home studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne, I stock Australian brands Shanghai Suzy lipsticks, NEEK Skin Organics lipsticks and ECO Minerals makeup, all are cruelty-free, vegan, non-toxic and Australian-made.
In the event that I’m already booked on your event date, you will have access to my handpicked team of talented and like-minded artists.
