Gena has always had a passion for makeup and indulgent colours. She spent many years dabbling with makeup, before working for M.A.C cosmetics on their Dunedin counter as a Retail Makeup Artist, during 2004. Not only did this serve to fuel her passion, but it enabled her to further develop her skills, working alongside some of New Zealand's most prominent Makeup artists.
Since moving to Wanaka early 2005, Gena has specialised in makeup application for editorial shoots, runway and brides. Her philosophy is that your wedding day should be relaxed and enjoyable, and she is there to make you look and feel as beautiful and radiant as possible. She only uses M.A.C cosmetics as she knows that the colour payoff and durability of the product, far exceeds many others on the market.
The HUGEST of thank you to you Gena for making us all feel divine on the day with plenty of laughs in the lead up! I am also compelled to express my immense gratitude for ensuring I relaxed and actually enjoyed the hours before the ceremony....your experience, honesty and professionalism ensured I literally had THE best day of my life! Can't thank you enough xoxox,
I just wanted to send you message and say a massive thank you for the beautiful make-up you did on our wedding day. More than one person has asked if I touched up my photos on my phone, they thought my make-up looked flawless! I felt so beautiful on the day and that is all down to yourself. It was lovely to have you there, you really made me feel at ease and able to enjoy the morning without feeling too nervous about what was to come. x
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your work on my wedding day back in February. You were such a dream to work with, right from the booking and then communicating up to the wedding day. Your amazing make-up skills made us all feel like superstars- my nana included! The morning getting ready was so relaxed, fun and stress free, thank you for being a part of it. Thanks again,
