My Work: Whether I’m transforming an everyday makeup into a natural but flawless bridal maquillage or turning a model’s or musicians face into a work of art for fashion magazines , music videos or red carpet events. I am always willing to listen and adapt my style to my client’s vision. With any project, I work closely with the client to understand the brief, develop concepts and deliver the style to produce stunning results. My Love: Since early childhood I have been amazed by the power of makeup to enhance ones natural beauty. I have my mother to thank for my curiosity – she worked for Givenchy and I always remember sitting beside her as a schoolgirl watching her experiment with new, dazzling products. I like to boast that, from an early age, I was “used to the good stuff.” My Practise I trained at L.A College of Creative Arts, where my favourite memory was working alongside Israeli born photographer, Lili Forberg. Through my work at the high-end department store Brown Thomas I was lucky to not only build relationships with the major beauty houses such as Estée Lauder and Christian Dior but I also learned to engage with clientele. It was here that I first experienced the true magic of makeup in changing a woman’s perspective of herself. My Dream In 2007 I set sail for sunnier shores, leaving Dublin and landing in Sydney – a place I am now proud to call home. After a brief period in the corporate world, I returned to my real passion as a makeup artist. Taking the leap of faith to start my own business has been the best decision I ever made and every day I am inspired by the clients I meet to keep creating, collaborating and continuing on my journey.

Maria is fabulous! She recently did the makeup for my wedding fiesta and I couldn't be happier. She also did the makeup for some of the guests and they were also impressed. She's very calm and we immediately started chatting away as we'd known each other for ages, which made me feel comfortable and relaxed. We did a trial the week before and this was a great idea as on the big day I could relax knowing that Maria had it covered.

Maria McConnell - one beautiful young lady. Maria kept communication with us from beginning to end & what a wonderful job she did of our hair & makeup - so very natural which we requested. I will recommend Maria to all my friends & family & will without doubt use her services again should the need arise. To Maria THANK YOU so very much - you helped to make our day a very special day leaving my Mum (Norma), my sister (Gail) & myself feeling on top of the world. Cheers to you Maria for your very special day. Love, hugs & thanks Lyn Fitzgerald Ocean Shores NSW

Maria was a pleasure to deal with. Very professional and helpful with replying to my text messages and sending through email hints to prepare for my Wedding day. I would highly recommend Maria for any make up requirements. Very friendly and easy to talk with.

Following up from previous review, Maria was absolutely wonderful to work with. I am not a person who wears make up and she made me feel so natural. My Matron of Honour is exactly the same as me and she felt just as comfortable. Maria is so easy to get along with and listens to your needs. I HIGHLY recommend her. If I have any other events that require make up and hair I know I would only go with her. Thank you for making me feel normal and sexy on my special day
