Best-rated Tauranga Wedding Makeup and Makeup Lessons
 
 

Lillybeth’s values:


UNBIASED INFORMATION - We are honest about products and ingredients.  We make recommendation based not on our potential income but on the needs of the customer.  The No-Pressure Promise is our promise to never ‘pressure-sell’ products at any appointment.  Product recommendations may be offered, but after a paid makeup lesson or makeover, our customers are free to spend their beauty budget wherever they like!


AUTHENTIC BEAUTY - We embrace inner beauty, personality and character because this is the true strength of a woman’s outer beauty.


INSPIRED ACTION - We promote deliberate action to improve one’s own health and appearance based on conscious and well-informed choices. < Get intentional!


PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS - We only offer techniques and routines that are effective and ‘do-able’ in real life!   We offer options for customisability to fit lifestyle and budget so skin care is given priority as a necessity, not a one-off luxury.


Two more values drive how we do business:


Global Connectedness - We are passionate members of the global online makeup artist and wedding professionals communities.  We use the people, tools and information available through the internet to the advantage of our customers. 


Local Relevance - We network with and pursue business collaborations with successful, local Tauranga business-owners to provide extra value to Lillybeth customers.  We can offer honest recommendations and contacts for specialised beauty products and treatments available locally.  Additionally, we also offer a unique product-based fundraising opportunity for schools and clubs - ask me about it!

  1. Educate women about personal beauty, beauty products and the cosmetics industry with honest, unbiased advice in a hype-free manner

What’s your makeup story?  Here’s mine:


Expecting a clichéd “from the age of four I was fascinated by my mum’s red lipstick” story?  You might hear various versions of such romantic memories from other makeup artists, and that’s great for them.


But my makeup story really started when I was nine years old.  I got my first pimple.  Acne was the cause of some pretty clever insult-names when I was 10 and 11 (watch the video to hear them).  For my intermediate school play, I was last in line for the teacher-applied makeup, in case the makeup sponges they used on me transferred my spots to the other students.  When I was 12, I was wearing foundation to school every day. 


Bad skin messed up my school photos (helped by the addition of braces) and didn’t improve through high school.  Acne was near the top of the list in my teenage prayers.  I wondered if my bad skin was given to me for a purpose - maybe to teach me something I could use later in life... I struggled with red scabs that took months to heal. See photos in the video below. 


I know the embarrassment image-challenges can create; the frustration, hurt, feelings of inferiority or victimhood.  But after years of skin and makeup mishaps, plus professional experience, I’ve discovered how makeup can be used not only to conceal flaws but to release a person to greater things than worrying about how they look. 


I’ve discovered when you feel attractive, a sense of freedom and gratitude powers your day.  You tackle tough times with more resilience, as a victor, rather than a victim.  And when you see the beauty in yourself, you start to see beauty everywhere.  Now I use professional makeup to release joy, self-appreciation and potential in others.  I aim to transfer what I’ve discovered and the Hope I’ve found to women of all ages, offering a refreshingly honest, sane approach to the crazy world of beauty.

What does the tagline “A Beautiful Education” mean?


The cosmetics industry is alluring...but potentially dangerous to your personal beauty AND your budget.” 


Most of the beauty ‘advice’ we receive from magazines and salespeople has been skewed by commercialism; too often it’s commission-driven, rather than focussed on the customer. 


In early 2008, I saw there was nowhere in Tauranga for women to get unbiased beauty advice without the expectation or requirement to purchase product.  I’m convinced a woman’s appearance is too important to risk on commercially-motivated advice, so I created my own brand of makeup lesson - one based on hype-free, non commission-focussed recommendations - and called it ‘A Beautiful Education’.


Belief in the power of makeup to transform a person both inside and out led me to become a qualified makeup artist, but the desire to put that power in the hands of everyday women is what drove me to create my own business and perhaps industry segment as a personal makeup consultant.  My work centres around helping busy women (whether beauty-smart or makeup-clueless!) become their own beauty experts.


I studied Fashion & Photographic Makeup through the School of Makeup Art Technology in Tauranga.  My qualification through the London CIBTAC authority is internationally recognised. Then - a twist!  I became in-demand by brides for their wedding makeup - bridal makeup that’s totally customised to suit the individual, with hassle-free booking and communication. 


I’ve added to my team and grown from there.  So here’s what we offer now!:  Makeup consultations and lessons / online shopping service / wedding makeup / bridal hairstylingmakeup for balls/events / business headshots / makeup for commercial projects / creative face painting.

Treat yourself to a unique brand of makeup lesson - ‘a beautiful education’ - designed to give women of all ages unbiased beauty advice...without the ‘salespitch’.


If you’re in the Bay of Plenty, NZ, contact me to discuss your ‘beautiful education’ now!
