cruelty-free hair & makeup artist

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

Hi! My name is Inèz. I’m a professionally trained makeup artist and hair stylist, originally from The Netherlands and now based in Melbourne, Australia (also followed training in both countries).

Known as a perfectionist and wanting my work to be impeccable, I believe good communication is key to a happy client. Together with the client (you!) I will determine what look they’re after and what suits them, ensuring they are 100% satisfied with the end result. Over 40 Google reviews and over 60 Facebook reviews show how much my client’s love for the finished looks. I’m known for the natural looks I often do, whether that be for actors in productions or private clients wanting to look fresh, beautiful, glowy and/or glamorous, but ‘like themselves’.

In my first year as a makeup artist I was able to participate in the Benelux Beauty Awards and received third prize in my first ever competition. In 2014, while travelling through Australia, I also won the Brisbane RAWards Makeup Artist of the Year.

My experience includes brides, bridesmaids, film, TV, commercials, music videos, lookbooks, formal and special occasion, photoshoots, male to female transformation, workshops, masterclasses, 1-on-1 advice, editorial and runway.

Another passion I have is working cruelty-free and sustainable. I care about animals and about the environment. In my kit you can find good quality, for a large part professional, makeup brands and of which 99.9% cruelty-free, with brands such as RCMA, Face Atelier, Viseart, Furless, Kryolan, Bodyography, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Shanghai Suzy, Dose of Colors, Makeup Geek, Maqpro, Makeup Weapons, Furless Cosmetics, DeLorenzo and White Sands. Completely vegan makeup is also available. I also try to create less waste, for example by using less disposable and more reusable tools, non-plastic q-tips and towels instead of tissues where possible.

Outside of paid work, I use my skills by volunteering for Look Good Feel Better (helping Australians face cancer with confidence) and My Wedding Wish (gifting weddings to the terminally ill).

At my little home studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne, I stock Australian brands Shanghai Suzy lipsticks, NEEK Skin Organics lipsticks and ECO Minerals makeup, all are cruelty-free, vegan, non-toxic and Australian-made.

In the event that I’m already booked on your event date, you will have access to my handpicked team of talented and like-minded artists.



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.”


– Emma H. –

“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!”
