If you’re looking for amazing hair and makeup for your wedding, I would thoroughly recommend Lillybeth and her team. As soon as I saw the magic she and hair stylist Laura created during my trial, I knew I was onto a very good thing. I recommend going into it with only the vaguest of ideas for what you want (like I did, hehe). This gives them the freedom to get really creative, to work with your features and skin tone, and give you something you would never have thought to ask for yourself, but you will LOVE. The morning of my wedding was so much fun, having our hair and makeup done by Lillybeth and Laura was a laugh a minute, so much fun and a great relaxing start to the day. Oh and our makeup lasted all day - ours was a brunch wedding (ceremony 9.30am) - we looked great all day until we left the venue mid afternoon; mine still looked fantastic even after catching a plane to Auckland for our honeymoon. It lasted well into the evening, we went out for dinner that night and it still looked fresh and lovely. Once again, seriously consider Lillybeth and team for your wedding. They’re not the cheapest out there I’m sure, BUT you get what you pay for, and then some. Xoxo

Lilybeth and her assistant Lisa were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Her emails were always professional, friendly and prompt. On the day my makeup (and that of my bridemsmaids) looked fantastic. We had a trial the day before and she listened to what I wanted (a veey natural look) and I walked down the aisle looking like myself. She also did an incredible job of covering up the patchy sunburn on my back that would have been visible in my dress. I would definitely recommend Lilybeth and her team.

For my daughters wedding I was treated to a make up session with Lillybeth. It was a fantastic experience not least because it ws only the second time Id ever had it done. She made me feel relaxed and whilst the make up was more elaborate than I ever would do myself it looked amazing. My new son in law even said I looked glamorous!!
As it was a treat I dont know how much it cost

Lillybeth did an amazing job of my makeup as well as my 3 bridesmaids and mum. She was very good at communicating and was very professional the whole way through. All of our makeup looked great in person and in the photos.
We were all happy with coverage and how well it lasted. Only thing was that the foundation Lillybeth used didn’t seem to stick on my face and didn’t last very well but she was very happy to just use my own foundation to ensure my makeup lasted the whole day. The foundation Lillybeth uses lasted well on all the other girls though so must have just been my skin!
Would highly recommend Lillybeth!

Lillybeth is amazing! I arraged things from the netherlands and I chose to let lillybeth do my make-up without an actual make-up trail. She made me feel at ease and i completly trusted her. I only showed her some photo’s from make-up she did in the past to show her what style I liked. The result was incredible!

Lillybeth was amazing and made wedding planning so much easier ! We met earlier in the year for a trial and made me feel at ease and comfortable - as not a frequent makeup wearer. She was great at recommending some excellent products to help me prep my skin for the big day which I still use daily she was professional , on time and organised which I wasn’t at ALL on our wedding day ! I would highly recommend her to all brides, and wish her all the best in future endeavours
Your a star Lillybeth ⭐️

Lillybeth was a wonderful make up artist. She did the make up for my two bridesmaids, my mother, my sister in law and myself. All of our make up was flawless and lastest throughout the heat of the day. Lillybeth was great at keeping the make up how we had discussed and not adding in my bridesmaids suggestions, without upsetting them. Thank you.

Lillybeth did an exceptional job with my wedding make up, as well as my 3 bridesmaids and my mum. Everyone’s make up was matched to them perfectly, while keeping on theme. It looked amazing on camera, but it was also stunning in person and lasted the whole day and night. Lillybeth was always quick to respond to any questions I had, and was very accommodating both with the trial timing and the wedding day itself. She was by far one of the easiest vendors to work with. It was lovely to have her as part of my special day

I booked Lillybeth for my wedding and chose Lisa one of her makeup artists. I was very nervous as I wasn’t really sure on how I wanted my makeup to look for my wedding! but I’m so glad I chose Lisa she was professional and lovely and was happy to change anything I wasn’t really sure about and suggested other ideas. I ended up Changing the look we discussed in the trial before the wedding without having another practice and I also didn’t really have a look for my bridesmaids either and she did a fabulous job she
made me and my bridesmaids look phenomenal! And our false lashes stayed on and looked really good to! Everyone kept saying how beautiful I looked and I looked stunning in all my wedding photos as well!
I’m so glad I booked lillybeth for my wedding I had nothing to worry about! I would recommend her and her team to anyone.

Lillybeth did my make up and amazed me with the results, she did an amazing job and really listened to what I had envisioned. My bridesmaids all looked super gorgeous as well…I couldn’t recommend Lillybeth more highly if you want to look beautiful your wedding day.

From the make-up trial to the actual day you made everything stress free and wonderful!
It was awesome to know that the make-up of myself and my bridal party was in great hands.
Make-up stayed on super well, considering we had photos pre-ceremony in wind/rain on Leisure Island!

Lillybeth is an amazing makeup artist! She did my makeup, my bridesmaids and my mums on my wedding day and we looked stunning. I received so many compliments. I can honestly say that my wedding makeup was the best makeup I have ever had. My face was flawless and I felt beautiful on my special day.

I absolutely loved my bridal make-up! Lilybeth did a fabulous job and was so lovely. I felt so beautiful on such a special day. I can highly recommend Lilybeth.

Lillybeth was professional from start to finish. She was prompt with communication and this was a relief when it came to coordinating all the different vendors. I felt I could rely on her to turn up on the day and do a great job. She was considerate at adapting to my requests and accentuated my best features. She also did a beautiful job in my bridesmaids. On top of all that, she was a relaxing and fun addition to the getting ready process. I trust her judgement and skills and have even booked in to have a follow up make up lesson with her. Thanks lillybeth

Having my make-up done was a lovely experience. Lillybeth listened to what I wanted, had great ideas and was just lovely to work with. She did my sister too and she was also very pleased. Overall very professional, extremely competent and just a lovely lady.

Lillybeth was a great makeup artist for my wedding. She easily got through 5 makeup’s and worked in around my hairdresser. She was calm, relaxed and prepared. She cruised along through the morning just like all of us. I was very happy with my makeup, it lasted until the next morning without wearing off or smudging (I didn’t have makeup remover packed in my hotel bag). I always have trouble with lipstick staying but Lillybeth’s was great! I didn’t have to reapply as the stain it left on my lips was just perfect. I’ve had makeup done by Lillybeth before 2 years prior and it was just as good this time around, if not better. I would highly recommend Lillybeth and if I get the chance I will be using her again!
Wedding Date: May 6, 2017
I booked my wedding makeup with Lillybeth a year out from my Wedding, due to her being in such hot demand she couldn’t do it herself but we had one of her team Daphne do our makeup. Daphne is so talented and amazing at what she does, she made all of my bridesmaids and I feel so beautiful. My mum, who doesn’t wear ANY makeup, called Daphne a magician. I was so happy that my mum felt comfortable, relaxed and beautiful on my wedding day too.

I contacted Lillybeth regarding booking my bridal and bridesmaids makeup, and received a response within a day! She let me know that she herself wouldn’t be available, but gave me the profiles of her other artists for me to look at and pick from. I chose Lisa and booked her in.
About a month out from our big day I had my trial. Lisa welcomed us into her home and made us feel comfortable. We trialed a look, which on looking at in the mirror I liked. I went away that afternoon and looked at pictures, and decided that in actual fact it was not what i was after, and I immediately sent through my concerns to Lillybeth. She and Lisa both assured me that they completely understood, and noted the changes I wanted and made me feel very listened to.
The day came around so fast, and I was a little bit nervous as wanted everything to be perfect. Lisa did my Mum’s and my 4 bridesmaid’s make up first and left me until last. We discussed the concerns I had with my trial and she went to work and it was SPOT ON!! I LOVED everything about my make up and I felt INCREDIBLE!
I have recommended Lillybeth and her team to many of my friends who are getting married in the coming year and will continue to do so. Very very impressed with the Lillybeth Ladies - thank you for making my day so perfect xx
