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 :)”


– Brydie – 


“I loved my makeup and I got soooooo many compliments! It felt great and I felt great and everything was great!
Love the lippie as well. Couldn’t fault it. Thanks so much. I will definitely recommend you and would come back to you in a heart beat!”
