“my priority is that every single client leaves with a smile on their face”

Being professionally trained  in makeup & hair styling you are ensured to be in good hands when using Inèz’ services. Originally from The Netherlands she managed to receive 3rd prize in the Benelux Beauty Awards within the first year of her makeup artistry career. While travelling through Australia she won the Brisbane RAWards Makeup Artist of the Year.

Inèz is a perfectionistic makeup artist who is passionate about good communication. She will find out her client’s needs, making sure her clients are 100% satisfied with the end result. Clients have praised her in particular on her skills for natural looking makeup, whether that be for commercials where the actors had to look like ‘normal’ people, or private clients that wanted to ‘look like themselves’.

The experiences that Inèz has include (but are not limited to) brides, bridesmaids, film, tv, commercials, lookbooks, formal, special occasion, photoshoots, male to female transformation, workshops, masterclasses, 1-on-1 advise, editorial and runway.

Inèz uses quality makeup brands and is currently transitioning her kit to be completely cruelty-free & vegan-friendly with brands such as RCMA, Viseart, Furless, Kryolan, Bodyography, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Shanghai Suzy, Dose of Colors and MaqPro. She is also stockist of Shanghai Suzy Melbourne-made lipsticks and ECO Minerals makeup from Byron Bay. Both brands are cruelty-free, vegan and Australian-made high-quality products.

clients say

“Inez comes highly recommended. Easy to work with, great eye for detail, friendly and helpful. I don’t know much about the technical side of make-up but if you want to look spectacular you can stop looking and ask Inez to work with you.”






– Sarah –

“Inez is an absolute professional and a joy to work with. She combines skill and creativity into her craft along with enthusiasm and drive. Inez worked for me on a small scale photoshoot, her recommendations and understanding of colour and style were paramount to the shoot’s success. I cannot recommend Inez enough, I look forward to working with her again soon.”


– Emma N. –

“A gorgeous girl who actually listens to what her client wants- so rare these days!- and an incredible result. Very talented, strongly recommend to others.”

“What a wonderful experience with Inèz. She did my hair and make-up for a wedding, not only did I feel stunning but also got so many compliments from everyone at the wedding on how good I looked (face and hair). Highly recommend Inez. Thank you for making me feel so great!!!”


– Ursula – 

“I highly recommend Inez. I needed my hair and makeup done at short notice and Inez rearranged her day to fit me in. She exceeded my expectations and i was extremely happy with the end result. I will be using her services again. Thanks Inez!!”


– Melanie – 

“I love having my makeup done by Inez !! She’s an amazing artist and out of the two times I’ve visited her I have loved the end result!! You’re amazing Inez !! 


– Sara – 

“Inez is awesome 🙂 so kind and friendly as well as a clear communicator and really good at finding out what style/tone her clients want (even if you can’t quite describe it normally – she knows exactly what questions to ask). Her professionalism and sincere care make it feel like a trusted friend is helping you look your best. Her natural style and vegan and sustainable make up were also a great benefit to choosing Inez. Thanks so so much for looking after us and making us feel beautiful 💕”


– Cindy – 


“Inez was absolutely charming and very easy to work with. The Fitzroy studio has a very cool vibe; and with that she absolutely understood that I was looking for a look that was understated but elegant. I was delighted with the end result – including my eyelashes which were a first time for me! Love my new lippie as well. Can’t recommend highly enough”


– Liz – 


“Inez did an amazing job on my make up for the Miss Universe State Final! Would highly recommend :)”
