I can’t stop raving about Sophie and the girls! From the day of my trial where Sophie worked to create exactly what I had in mind, through to the wedding day where myself and my 5 bridesmaids all looked amazing! I was so stoked with how we all looked. My hair and makeup lasted all day and night, even after quite a few big hours on the dance floor. Thanks so much xx

From my first contact with Sophie she was friendly and very helpful. I had my trial and Sophie did an amazing job and we only made 1 change for the wedding day.

For my wedding day, Sophie and her team were early, bubbly and did a wondedul job on my myself, my 3 bridesmaids, mum and our family friend. Everyone had different skin types and Sophie and the team had so much knowledge to make sure everyone was happy and looked stunning. We all got a little touch up bag which was needed on such a hot day and after eating and drinking.

I will definitely be using lipstick and co for future events.

I had Sita and the girls do the hair and make up for my wedding - I couldn’t recommend them more highly!
They did an amazing job on myself, 5 bridesmaids and mum! They also did my best friends mum and her sister at short notice on the day of the wedding! Super accomodating! Everyone looked amazing - so nice and natural! Just what I wanted.

Sita was an absolute dream to work with! 

Sita and her team made the morning feel very relaxed but also special. It was a great way to start such a great day! My sister never wears makeup, but the team made her feel completely comfortable and relaxed on the day. Having the team come to us on the wedding day helped to make for a stress free morning as well.

I had some idea of what I wanted to look like on my wedding day - but Sita exceeded those expectations completely! She provided great advice about what would suit me and my dress etc.

I would 100% recommend Lipstick and Co to any potential brides (and I would also recommend having a hair and makeup trial beforehand!)

Thanks again Sita! xx

Thanks again ladies.

Cannot speak highly enough of Sophie and her team! They have been professional and friendly from the very first contact. During my trial Sophie helped me choose the best look for what I was wanting and she did an amazing job with both the hair and makeup. On the wedding day Sophie and her team were right on time and got through me, my four bridesmaids and the two mothers with loads of time to spare! Everyone looked beautiful and even after the full day out in the sunshine and hours of dancing our makeup was still flawless!! Thank you so much ladies!!

I am writing this review about the lovely Sita from Lipstick & Co who did my hair and make up for our wedding.

Sita was professional, helpful, precise and listened to my requests when I showed her the desired pictures that I wanted her to re create.
Sita did a wonderful job of my make up and hair…both for my special day and also for my trial.

Sita used awesome, good quality products…loved MAC! She also answered all my questions when asking what products she used on me which I found to be very helpful.

Sita gave me and my mother a touch up bag that held make up essentials so that we could re apply our lipstick throughout the day.

I would definitely recommend her.

Thanks again for an awesome job!

Sam.

I cannot speak highly enough of Sophie and Abbey who did mine and my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup on my wedding day. I felt like a princess, and my bridesmaids looked beautiful. I had my hair completely different to my trial, but nothing was too much trouble for Sophie. I know my mum and mother in law felt their absolute best, and really felt pampered. Sophie is so professional but also friendly and fun. My makeup and hair lasted the entire night - which was amazing considering the wind up at Mudbrick on the hill, and the amount I sweated on the dance floor! The whole experience was the perfect beginning to the best day of our lives.

Thank you so much Caren and Libby for doing hair and make-up for my bridesmaids and I and make-up for my mum for my wedding in Wellington on 14 January. You made us feel super comfortable and relaxed and went out of your way to make sure we were all happy with how we looked, which we most definitely were! It was the best start to my wedding day. We also really enjoyed reminiscing about 90’s music icons with you both while we were being made up! Thanks also to Caren for reminding me to eat smile

Sophie and her team were incredible. They came all the way down to Rotorua and did both makeup and hair for my 5 bridesmaids, Mum, Mother-in-law and myself. Sophie’s kind, down-to-earth personality made us all feel so comfortable and my bridal party looked stunning! Thank you so much for helping our day to be so special grin

Caren was a fabulous hair and makeup artist, and I strongly recommend her for anyone in the Wellington area! Her perfect balance between friendly relaxing humor and professionalism made me feel at ease, and that I was in good hands. Caren took on board my very vague directions, and happily worked with me and my sister to create the perfect look for my wedding day.

Sophie and her team were absolutely awesome! They did my makeup, four bridesmaid and my mother and the results were gorgeous. I just loved my look and my husband was just blown away. Sophie was reliable, good at communicating and had such a warm personality that made you feel comfortable the entire time! I was not stressed on the day at all, everything went smoothly, which is key for your big day! I would definitely recommend Lipstick & Co for anyone’s up & coming wedding!

I used Lipstick & Co for my wedding at Mudbrick last month. I couldn’t have asked for a better day - Sophie made me and my bridesmaid look beautiful from top to toe!! She did an amazing job and it was everything I envisioned.

From the trials to the actual day Sophie took the time to understand what look I was after for my wedding. We used her for hair, makeup, nails, the lot. It’s so nice to have a one-stop-shop for all beauty services, whether it be mobile or in-salon treatments, and she and her team are equally talented at everything they do which is a real rarity.

I really appreciated the time she took on the actual day to ensure everything was perfect. We got given a little pouch of touch-up lipstick and a few other goodies to keep us looking fresh throughout the day which was a fabulous touch. I was very impressed the hair and makeup lasted all day - from midday to midnight both stayed looking perfect.

Sophie is an absolute pleasure to deal with, so friendly and bubbly, an incredibly talented woman, and I am truly grateful for everything she did for me on my special day.

I’m so glad I found Lipstick & Co, and I will definitely see you ladies again soon for some more pampering!!

Sophie and her team were a fab choice for hair and makeup for our entire bridal party. Sophie spent plenty of time with me before the wedding working out what would work for my skin to achieve the look I was after, the end result was beautiful and lasted all night. Highly recommended, & thanks again ladies!

After finding Lipstick and Co on WeddingWise and falling in love with the looks on their website I was over the moon when Sophie said they were available to do my hair and makeup.

The trial was so much fun and Sophie was such a neat blend of professionalism and easy-going. She was genuine and lovely to talk to, like a friend you’d always known.

I loved the makeup from the trial but knew it would be too much for husband to be (as I wear none normally) After emailing through what changes we could make, Sophie said it would be no problem at all.
And it really wasn’t. On the wedding day, she had memorized everything I had listed to change and fully captured what I was after. 

The hair and makeup lasted really well even in the wind and rain taking photos.

If you’re looking for someone to do an amazing job with your hair and make up and to make you feel beautiful - definitely go with Lipstick and Co smile

Sophie and the team were amazing - my bridal party, mum and mother-in-law all had such a good time with them while we were getting ready. They really helped to keep us all relaxed, and it was such a fun morning! They were punctual, professional, and they made us all look gorgeous. I only wish I could have Sophie do my hair and make-up every day!

Sophie and her team are such amazing people and went way beyond my expectations, From the moment I met Sophie she made me feel so comfortable and calm. He and Yasmin are both such warm, friendly people and I knew they would do an awesome job, They came to our house before the wedding to do our nails and spray tan for my 2 bridesmaids and myself and they even stayed to help us make the flowers for our centrepieces!! I honestly could not be happier that I chose Sophie and Yasmin to do our hair and make up and would highly recommend them if you want to look beautiful for your special occasion. Thanks!!

What a fantastic team! Very professional but relaxed. Great communication over what I knew was a very busy time for Sophie and very accommodating to our requests. They were able to get a lot of people (b, bm x3 and 4 others) ready in a short amount of time after an early start to travel from Auckland to Waihi! The addition of mani and pedi’s made us feel very spoiled.
The hair and make up on the day looked just like the trial. Very natural looking, lasted well and great comments gained from our guests (comfortable too).
I highly recommend Sophie and her team. Thank you so much for contributing to making our wedding such a magical experience.

If you are looking for a make-up artist please stop looking! Sophie is hands down THE BEST.  I was completely apprehensive about getting my make-up done for my wedding.  Who wouldn’t be?? I tried numerous agencies and once I went to Sophie it was a no brainer.  She has a talent and can literally transform the best aspects of your face without piling it on.  She turned up with two assistants to my hairdressers which was hard to navigate around I’m sure. 

They got our make-up done professionally, and every single one of us felt like a super star.  I looked at myself for my wedding day and I had never felt more beautiful.  I gave Sophie access to a Pinterest board for all of our looks and she just got on with it.  It was actually the first time that day I was able to relax.  THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

I had 3 girls from Lipstick & co. including Sophie come to my mom’s place the morning of my wedding. Although it was pretty early (7am) they were very prompt, arrived right on time and got to work very efficiently. They managed to do hair and makeup for 4 bridesmaids, my mom and myself by 10:30 which was our pre-discussed schedule. Sophie also managed to get me one of her team member (Jenni) to be at the groom’s place the morning of to take care of her hair and makeup although I could only give her a very short notice!

Sophie is extremely skilled and talented and definitely “gets” you even if you don’t use fancy hair/makeup terms. As for the actual hair and makeup, they were very long lasting- lasted all day- and just overall amazing, I loved my hair and makeup during my trial and on the actual day!

I’d like to say thank you Sophie and her team once again, I was so glad I could have them on board my wedding team smile

Sophie is one incredibly talented women!  Her and Yasmin made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day I felt like a hair model off Pintrest or something!

Seriously though I couldn’t have asked for my hair to look any better, I showed her a picture and she ran with it and did something even better than what I could have dreamed of.

They both did an excellent job of not only of my hair but my bridesmaids, mum and sister in laws hair too.

Sophie and Yasmin fitted right in at our home where we were getting ready, they made it fun and it felt like we were just getting our hair done by our friends.

Thanks so much again ladies, brides to be, if you want stunning hair these are your ladies.

Sophie was so professional and lovely from makeup trial to hair and makeup on the wedding day. I only had a rough idea on what style i wanted when we had the trial, but Sophie helped me get a clearer idea, and find the style which I was comfortable with.

I received so many compliments regarding my look on my wedding day thanks to Sophie. I’m so glad I had her as my makeup artist!

I would recommend her to all upcoming brides without a hesitation.

Thanks so much Sophie! xx

Sophie and her team were AMAZING! She went above and beyond on my special day to make me look and feel amazing. She made everything so easy and relaxing organising trials to everything running smoothly on the big day. She is so talented and has many skills. She was able to fit in a spray tan and came to me at my hotel as well as fitting my mum in last minute. She listened to all my ideas, asked for photos, shared pinterest boards and also gave options and suggestions which was really helpful. She made me feel comfortable and at ease about decisions etc each time I caught up with her. We had such a fun morning the day of the wedding with so many laughs and stories - Sophie and her team made it seem like we had all known her for years and she was an integral part of the day. She stayed right until we left to go the the ceremony, she did any last minute touch-ups or pinning etc, made sure we had our ‘kit’ with supplies like lippy for touching-up and was there to put her dressmaking skills to good use when a hook and eye came loose on my dress and we found a small tear in the lace. Nothing was too hard or out of the question for Sophie. Although she was my make-up and hair artist she was so much more!

Jenni from Lipstick & Co did my hair for my wedding and also the trial the week before.
I am very fussy, and after she had done my trial I took some photos and decided I really didn’t like it.
No problem for Jenni! Over the next week she did some different looks on a wig and emailed them through to me with different ideas.
On the day Jenni arrived perfectly on time and well prepared. She ran through with me and ascertained what I really wanted, and gave me a small mirror so I could see the progress.
The result was absolutely beautiful and I was very happy with it. Jenni also did my mum’s hair and did a lovely job of that.
Jenni was also very friendly and professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Sophie was wonderful. She is engaging, warm, interesting, and makes you feel beautiful and totally relaxed.  The trial session with her was great and she helped me work out what I wanted (when I was pretty uncertain to start with).  On the day, Sophie and Maddie were amazing - they did the hair and makeup for me, my five bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom, and made it a really enjoyable experience. They laughed and chatted with us, and made everyone feel relaxed. Everyone looked beautiful (but the bride most of all!!) and Sophie and Maddie were masters of the different styles they used on each of us - dramatic for the bride, beachy and natural for the bridesmaids, and natural and elegant for the mothers. My mother rarely wears makeup and usually isn’t very comfortable in it, but she was delighted with how lovely she looked and it gave her so much confidence throughout the day and night.

Thank you Sophie and Maddie - your work and charm and talent was greatly appreciated.

I first met Sophie and the gang in a bridal fair. From the onset, the team was very accommodating and very easy to deal with. I immediately knew that i found my make-up artist.

This was just reinforced by how easy it was to deal with Sophie even before the wedding. She was very quick to respond to inquiries and happy to answer any questions that i have asked.

During my big day, Sophie and Maddie arrived on time and exuded an air of charm and professionalism. Me, my mom and my lovely bridesmaids felt at ease with their work. We were in good hands.

But nothing could prove this more than the result of their work. Everybody looked stunning! I felt very confident with my look and this gave me an extra boost through my special night.

In simple words, BEST MAKEUP ARTIST EVER!

Abbie and Jenni were absolutely amazing on my wedding day. I was very stressed but Abbie’s lovely bubbly personality put me at complete ease. my eyes are quite sensitive but she made me perfectly comfortable while applying eyeliner. My bridesmaids were so impressed by Jenni’s work, and both hair and makeup were outstanding . It stayed in place all day, and we got touch up kits for lipstick . We all had such a fun time, it was the best I could have imagined my wedding day prep to be!!

Sophie & her team were amazing!! I had my make-up done along with my 3 bridesmaids, mother, 2 flower girls, 2 sisters, & a sister-in-laws and they all looked fantastic smile everyone only had compliments for how we looked. I don’t usually wear make-up so really wanted to look as natural as possible which Sophie definitely pulled off for me. I had a trial done but decided I wanted my hair & make-up to be completely different form the trial which was no problem for Sophie at all. She did exactly what I asked for on the day smile We really were blown away with the service, attention to details, and how relaxed they were which in turn made everyone else feel more at ease!! I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I would definitely recommend Sophie & her team to anyone wanting wedding hair and & make-up, or for any other event!! smile Thank you!!

Ok, let me start this review by being totally honest…
Sophie - the owner of Lipstick & Co is my sister!
That being said - without any bias and trying to be as objective as possible - I literally could not have asked for anything more perfect on my wedding day.

Sophie organised anything and everything we didn’t want to ( or forgot to. )
She fitted in seamlessly with our all of plans and just seemed to “get” our vision for the big day.

The hair and makeup was gorgeous, which is hard for me to say because I have always been a fan of the natural look. But even I have to admit that my wife Caren was the epitome of beauty on our wedding day thanks in no small part to Sophie’s talented masterwork. She was also responsible for the hair and makeup of all 4 of the bridesmaids who all looked fantastic.

Sophie organised all the photography and even made us a wonderful photo album. It’s great for looking back on all our fond moments and sharing them with those who couldn’t make it.

Somehow Sophie managed all of the huge jobs that needed doing leading up to / during the wedding and still managed to be her cheerful awesome self and help me celebrate and enjoy my wedding day. She really is amazing!

Thanks so much Sophie and Lipstick & Co

- Eli

Jenni Liang did my hair and makeup for my sister’s wedding and I could not have been happier with the result! She is so incredibly sweet and talented. As I am not someone who wears a lot of makeup, she kept my makeup very natural and did a gorgeous plait in my hair. I felt and looked beautiful, and love looking at the pictures from the day. I got countless compliments on the hair and makeup grin.
I’d highly recommend her to anyone, Thanks Jenni and Lipstick & Co for the great job !

Sophie and Jenni did mine and my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding on Valentines Day.

They were both amazing. Arrived on time and quickly got into making us gorgeous. We felt very comfortable all getting done up and my sister, who had never had her makeup done professionally said she felt really beautiful.

Thanks for everything girls. smile

Sophie was amazing!

She rescued me after a less than ideal first trial.  She was professional while still being friendly and approachable.  As a typical excited bride, I had lots of different inspiration and Sophie listened to all my ideas and then skillfully helped me pick out the plan of attack,

Sophie even went the extra mile and did my flowers which were absolutely perfect and exactly what I asked for.

She was punctual and worked quickly.  We had a great time chatting away while I got ready which meant that I was not nervous at all.

I felt beautiful and my hair and make-up stayed in place on one of the most humid days of the summer.  I got so many compliments on the gorgeous colours of the flowers and the convenience of having her bring the flowers and gorgeously crafted bouquet to me on the day was ideal.

I would recommend Sophie and her team anytime!

Lipstick and Co. ladies came to do hair/makeup for not only myself as the bride, but also for my mum (mother of the bride) and my 7 bridesmaids. Let’s just say, perfection is too miniature of a term to use for these ladies.

We had an early wedding ceremony at 10am, and all our hair/makeup was done by 8am and not only did our hair stay intact the whole day (6 of the 7 girls had long thick hair), but our makeup was flawless!!! The whole morning was fun, relaxing and so efficient, that noone was stressed out throughout the whole process of getting ready.

The professionalism, sociability, positive attitude and connecting to their clients was fantastic!!! And man did they deliver!

Sophie (the founder of Lipstick and Co.) from the get-go was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you so much Sophie for making all of us girls feel not only special but beautiful on the day!!!

I so recommend if you are looking for someone to make u feel beautiful and relaxed on an important occassion, Lipstick and Co. is the BEST choice!!!! I can guarantee they won’t disappoint!

Look no further Sophie is your girl! From a bride who had some rain on her wedding day my makeup was flawless even out in 2 hours of professional photography… If thats not enough Sophie is an extremely talented makeup artist she did makeup for 4 bridesmaids and myself and my flower girl and it was gorgeous not to mention that she started her work day at 4am (wedding before mine) that day and with no breaks and pulled off all the girls and myself within 4 hours! She is so lovely and I will use her again for any event I can have an excuse to get my makeup done. This girl ticks all the boxes and you will not be disappointed.

I recently had the pleasure of having Sophie as my hair and make-up artist for myself and my two best woman for my wedding day.

Sophie was fantastic to work with - professional and punctual; yet relaxed and warm.

As someone who doesn’t wear very much make-up (and whose fiancé doesn’t like make-up) I was a bit concerned about how we were going to balance enough make-up for the photos - yet still look natural.

Sophie did an amazing job of making me look a prettier version of me and my husband was still able to recognise me!

Sophie even went out of her way to fit in my very inquisitive niece at no extra charge - which was a very special treat for her.
I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone looking for hair and make-up for any special occasion - thank you!

Had the chance to have makeup and hair done by Sophie in a post wedding photo shoot. Sophie was excellent! First of all, she was very punctual and was all set up and ready to go when I turned up. She was very professional - she asked to looked at my dress, asked if I had anything in mind and when I didn’t, gave me good advice on what makeup and hair to have and dived straight into action without hesitation. It felt like she had a very detailed plan in mind and executed it accordingly. She works really fast - which I think is what you need from a makeup artist on your wedding day because that translates into more time enjoying yourself, mingling with guests, taking photos etc. Also, she did a loose bun for me, yet, not a wisp of hair came undone during my very windy photo shoot. Overall, I would high recommend Sophie for all B2Bs.

I met Sophie a few weeks ago when she did my hair and make-up for a family wedding.  As Maid of Honour I was a little nervous about the make-up as I don’t normally wear much and I shy away from photos whenever possible. 

Sophie made me feel relaxed and beautiful.  My make-up was simple yet elegant and I love what she did with my eyes.  I received so many compliments on the day and again when the photos were published.

She also did a fantastic job of taming my hair, not an easy feat!

Sophie was on time, professional and fun.  I highly recommend her for hair and make-up and would use her again in a heartbeat.

Sophie was absolutely incredible!!  She is extremely professional, full of great ideas and actually really listens.  I am not one of those girls who is up with the play with hair and make-up so was a little unsure about the look I wanted.  My hair from my trial changed a lot and Sophie, being uber experienced, was able to make the changes I wanted and took the changes in her stride.  I truly felt she wanted to make me look as amazing as possible and feel she absolutely delivered! 

My bridesmaid and I are going back to her for make-up lessons!

Book Sophie for your wedding or event, she is amazing!

Sophie is a lovely person to work with. She was punctual on the trial day as well as the wedding day.  On the trial day, snapshots were taken and emailed to me. We had some emailing about what I like and what could be done differently.

My makeup and hair was done on time on the wedding day so the schedule for the whole day was pretty much stress free. The makeup was flawless and long lasting, just with lipstick touch up during the evening. Everyone commented how well the makeup was! I must admit the photographs look amazing - I would definitely have Sophie for my next big event makeup.

Thank you Sophie!

I am an Asian bride. It always very hard to find the right make up artist for me in NZ, until I met Sophie.
Sophie is absolutely the most wonderful make up artist! She is not only made me feel so special on my wedding day, but also during the trial.
She works on study my face, then combine the best suitable make up for me.
And she is extremely creative, if you ever got a chance to see her painting, you will know the skill she can apply to your lovely face.
Also very importantly she has a such lovely personality. I absolutely enjoy the whole process of my wedding make up! Highly recommend!

I was very lucky to have Sophie and her assistant doing makeup for myself my mother and two bridesmaids last week. 

The bridesmaids had neutral colours and a relaxed style, they both loved it.  My mother was very impressed with her style as well.

I wanted a romantic natural look and that’s exactly what I got.  I had already worked out my style from the makeup trial (which I highly recommend) so it made the process very relaxing.  My makeup was amazing it lasted well over 12 hours with the lipstick the only touch up (which she provided), it was lovely and if I could I would have her do my makeup always.  My hair was beautiful, Sophie stayed longer to add in my flowers as we’ll.

I can’t recommend Sophie enough her attitude and personality made the experience lovely, and her experience and skills made me a very happy bride.

Sophie Tucker is amazing!

She comes with my highest recommendations. Sophie did my hair and makeup for one of my best friends weddings.

She was super efficient, calm and organised on the day, and I felt so comfortable with her as we had talked many times about what would happen on the day. I was so happy with how I looked. She did an outstanding job of my other friends as well. They had so many compliments for her and all day I felt incredible.

She truly understood what I meant when I said “natural look,” I find many artists these days don’t quite grasp that. Seeing as it was my best friends wedding I had many questions for Sophie and she went over and above to accommodate my requests. Such a lovely lady!

Highly recommend her!!!!

I had a fantastic experience with Sophie and found her to be very professional.
She had a very warm, bubbly personality and helped create a fun yet calm environment on the morning of the wedding.

I particularly liked that throughout the day Sophie would spontaneously come to us and give us each a quick touch up. This was particularly helpful before the photos and before we presented at the hall in the evening.

I found Sophie to be very thorough and would highly recommend her to any bridal party, function, or crew as she would be a highly valuable asset.
