Please introduce yourself
My name is Rina Hepworth, I have been living on the beautiful Gold Coast since 1996 and been a Professional Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist since 2002.
Can you tell us about your services and what you offer?
We offer Professional Makeup and Hair Styling for every type of event. Weddings, Photo Shoots, School Formals, Special Events, Calendars and more. Airbrush and Conventional Makeup application are available. One of my Hair Stylists is also a fabulous Hair Dresser.
A mobile service is available and we travel all over the Gold Coast and are able to travel to Byron Bay & Brisbane for a minimum of number of services.
*A travel fee applies for some areas
How early do you accept bookings?
10-12 month in advance at the most.
What is important for couples to be aware of?
Unfortunately not every artist out there has been through a Professional Course or uses Professional products. Sometimes clients will go for the lower price over the experience of another artist. With 11yrs experience in this industry I have heard so many stories of disappointment and wishing they had have spent a few extra dollars.
Why should couples book with you?
We offer a Professional yet relaxed, stress free experience. All of my girls have been hand picked by myself. They have a minimum of 10yrs experience, along with a passion for Makeup and Hair. Not to mention are very friendly and talented. I’m extremely picky with who I will send out to represent my name/business. We never over book clients and each artist is booked for only one wedding per day.
What special advice do you suggest?
Word of mouth is and has always been the best way to find the services you require for your event in my opinion. Vendors in the industry usually have a number of people they highly recommend. I personally only recommend others that I’ve known and worked with for many years.
Advice for Makeup and Hair leading up to your big day. Makeup looks better and lasts longer if your skin is hydrated. Otherwise your skin will take the moisture from the products and end up looking dry.
I recommend having a good skincare regime as well as drinking plenty of water and cutting down on soft drinks (if you drink them) and junk food.
If you plan to start using skincare or are thinking of changing your products, do so at least 6 months prior to your wedding. This gives your skin time to adjust to the products.
If you are unsure about skincare or need some advice, please feel free to contact me and we can arrange a consultation.
