"This striped jumpsuit and I travelled the North Island this past wedding season!" - Micki

A note from Micki...

"With 6+ years experience in the fashion, theatre & film industry, I feel I have gained the skills and knowledge of makeup application for all occasions, and for both women and men of all ages, skin types, tones and face shapes. Having the time to connect with each of my clients during makeovers and lessons is definitely my favourite part of the job, as I love to make you feel and look as special and beautiful as you already are.

In 2015 I spent the year as a volunteer for the New Zealand Cancer Society's 'Look Good Feel Better' charity event in which makeup artists like myself volunteer to coach and makeover incredible women fighting the effects of cancer. This completely inspired me, and proved to me just how powerful an impact makeup can have on how we feel, so I launched Makeup Etc.  
I use a variety of makeup brands as part of my kit in order to achieve the most perfect results to suit each individual and occasion. I am passionate about skincare & makeup products, so am always eager to offer product insights or recommendations. 

If asked what my specialty makeup skills are I would have to say that I am confident in my ability to work with more mature women & brides in particular, as I have worked with many women of all ages, including a few lovely ladies in their 80's who have been thrilled with the final outcome. I also thoroughly enjoy Special FX and Halloween makeup, with a year of working on horror/thriller films under my belt. 

My aim when doing a client's makeup is to achieve the look they desire without compromising their natural features. Like myself, my grandma was also a makeup artist back in the 1960s and she told me the best advice to date; that makeup should enhance not change or hide, and I completely agree. I look forward to hearing from you about how we can create a beautiful look for your occasion together. "

Makeup Coaching with Micki

Groups & individual welcome!



Groups (4+ people) - $100 per person

Individual (1on1 session) - $120

Perfect group activity for friend catch ups, hen parties (get yourself glammed up for a fun girls day), work do’s, birthday parties and more! Wine drinking encouraged, laughs and a good time with friends guaranteed!

In a makeup routine rut? Are your usual products not looking as good on you now as they once did? Perhaps you buy makeup products often but always end up putting them in a drawer because you’re not sure how you should be using them? Micki can help.

Did you know, over 50% of women from the age of 16-60 years admit to β€˜purely guessing’ when it comes to how to apply their own makeup? Even though 64% of those women wear makeup every single day.

Makeup is a great tool for us to enjoy which can make us feel more confident, professional and enhanced in just a few minutes. Feeling in control and knowledgable about how to use the makeup we have tucked away in that drawer helps women feel empowered and beautiful which can benefit our lives in so many ways.

Instead of spending another couple hundred dollars on makeup products that you both don’t need, or know how to use, gather a group of friends and have Micki join you for a fun, lighthearted and enlightening makeup coaching session. You will learn techniques, tips and product knowledge from a working professional makeup artist who works daily with women of all ages.

β€œI love makeup, and I love teaching it. Every woman or group I have had the pleasure of coaching has finished the session beaming with confidence and both looking and feeling their most beautiful, and to me, that is the biggest reward. Being talked into buying endless unnecessary products is a waste of money, but investing in your personal makeup skills and bettering your knowledge of how to effectively apply even the basic products, never will be.”
