Alissa is a talented makeup artist who I have had the pleasure of knowing for some time. Alissa helped me construct the perfect day-to-day look from high school age, did an amazing job of my year 12 formal makeup and recently showed me how to do simple yet effective contouring to help with my confidence in this skill area. Alissa is highly professional, extremely polite, very informative and always works out the best look for the individual based on their facial shape.

I really enjoyed your professional makeup tutorial. Your lovely makeup studio was very impressive and the fully-equipped setup was perfect for learning all the useful techniques you showed me. I learnt so much and felt really inspired to try new looks and equipment. The customised, take-home face charts and thorough information booklet have allowed me to revisit and practise what I’ve learnt and I now feel much more confident applying my own makeup. On a number of occasions, when I’ve done my own makeup, people have asked me if I’ve had it done by a professional! It’s great to be able to go out, confident that I’m looking my best!

The five Bridesmaids ranged in age from 12 to 21, with hair colouring blonde, brown, dark auburn, red and black and skin colourings as diverse! Their dressed were also each a different colour. Alissa showed great skill as she applied the appropriate make-up colours for each girl and brought out the best in their complexions, while still keeping the Bridesmaids’ overall look similar. Her peaceful, unflustered countenance was much appreciated admist the last minute rush.

Alissa’s make-up abilities are excellent and I have no hesitation in reccommending her to my salon clients. She is honest, reliable and punctual.

Alissa’s make-up was very natural and attractive. I was struck by her punctuality, reliability and resourcefulness. She was willing to work within the difficult constraints of the shoot and was always cheerful and responsive.

Alissa is extremely competent, reliable, able to work quickly and without fuss. I would recommend her for any make-up position in which reliability and competence were prized.
