Best Wedding Makeup Artist Canberra

“I can confidently say that Lilah is one of the BEST makeup artists you will ever find, and I can’t recommend her enough. My wedding makeup was incredible – I don’t think I’ve ever felt more beautiful. My bridesmaids were so happy too, they both have sensitive skin which was not a problem at all for Lilah. Lilah is a true artist – so professional, she really listens and cares, and her number one priority is to make you feel like the very best version of yourself. I loved the little touch up bag she gave me for later on, but honestly, the makeup was so good I did not even need it. Which was pretty amazing considering how much I cried on the day! Lilah also makes you feel so comfortable and she just felt like another friend helping me get ready. You’re amazing Lilah! “
