“I cannot praise Lilah Gow Makeup Artistry enough!
Lilah is an expert. She will create make up that reflects your unique personality, face shape and skin type – she is dedicated to making you feel (and look) amazing! She worked alongside me, a nervous bride, through the trial and on the day.
Lilah’s home studio (and mobile studio set up) are very professional and extremely well appointed. On the day, Lilah was the one keeping me present and calm, reminding me to breathe and to enjoy the wonderful morning – being in her glam chair is like being in your own little zen bubble.”
BRIDE- Anneke Kate – CANBERRA
“Lilah was unbelievable! So professional and approachable, and totally took the time to understand what I wanted from her services. She is extremely talented and well trained, super professional and very easy to communicate with. She has an excellent energy about her and it was a pleasure to have her around in the morning of the wedding. She went above and beyond for myself and my bridal party and I really couldn’t recommend her highly enough! THANK YOU LILAH!”
BRIDE – Gina. K -SYDNEY
“Oh. My. God. Where do I even start…! Perhaps with the lady herself. I cannot thank Lilah enough for all that she did for myself, my bridesmaids and my mum last Saturday at our wedding. Her Ora is exactly what you want from a vendor on your wedding day. Calm, organised, reliable and good chat. We had THE BEST time getting ready with Lilah. As a person, there are no faults. And then there was the make-up… I met Lilah earlier in the year for a trial and I knew instantly I was in good hands. My brief, ‘natural. I want to look like me’. The day of my wedding I could not have felt more natural and like me. My bridesmaids the same. We were feeling our best and looking our best! And then there was my mum. More mature skin. My mum looked BEAUTIFUL. Lilah, I am so thankful to have crossed paths. I will be referring you to all my friends when their partners drop the knee. You have a gift XX
BRIDE – Rosie Jane – Mona Farm 2019
“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, don’t ever forget it.”
BRIDE – Hannah Walker – Parkesbourne 2019
“I was lucky Lilah was available to be part of our wedding in February 2020. She is everything you could want in a make-up artist: her skills are faultless, she’s passionate, she uses top-quality products, and she’s organised. She also happens to be a warm, down-to-earth, beautiful person and is super generous with her knowledge.
Meeting Lilah for the first time at my trial was like catching up with an old friend. She made me feel completely at ease. She listened to what I wanted, and took the time to tailor and explain different options.
She also helped me to better understand my skin, and recommended products to improve its appearance in the lead-up to the Big Day. I still use these products in my daily routine.
The day itself was a state of emergency in the ACT, with bushfires nearby. The temperature reached 43 degrees. But Lilah made a big impact on the relaxed vibe of the day. She made me look and feel like the best version of myself. My make-up stayed in place right through to the wee hours of the morning, with just a few touch-ups using the gorgeous little kit she put together for me. She did a wonderful job with my four bridesmaids too. Everyone looked naturally stunning. Highly recommend!”
BRIDE – Jo Johnson – Canberra – 2020
“Lilah was amazing! I chose her off a series of recommendations and now it’s my turn to sing her praises. She is highly professional and works to understand you and your skin before you even land in her chair. I am very fair skinned and was really worried about having foundation that was too dark (which happened in a trial with a different MUA) but she listened to my concerns and matched and blended everything beautifully. I had number changes left, right and centre with border closures and opens and Lilah was fantastically flexible. I opted to have the premium touch up bag and the detail and products in it were beautiful. Everything she does is well thought out and done with love. I can’t wait to have another event and use Lilah again. “

BRIDE – Kelly. H – CANBERRA
“Lilah was an absolute professional, both in terms of her skills as a makeup artist, and in her organisation and thoughtful preparation. She prepared a look that suited me, taking into account my face shape, skin type and preferences (I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup so prefer the natural look). The makeup lasted well throughout the day – even after I cried a little during the ceremony – and looked good in person and in my photos.I knew I was in safe hands with her, and I heartily recommend Lilah to anyone for wedding makeup!”
BRIDE – Caitlin McGill – CANBERRA
“Lilah is incredible! My make up trial was so much fun and she made sure I loved everything. If I wasn’t sure about something she changed it for me without hesitation. She tested all different products on me and checked in to see how they were holding up through out the day. She gave me skin tips to ensure my skin looked great on my wedding day and I follows them to a T and my face has never looked better. On the day of my wedding Lilah smashed it! The girls looked amazing and my make up was incredible! She knows how to accentuate everyone’s best features without overdoing the make up. Everything she did was perfect. My girls looked stunning! Flawless.
Lilah came prepared with everything possible she could think off, she even packed an emergency kit (huge bag!) of everything possible that someone might need on the day and boy did that come in handy!! Lilah is so talented, so funny, kind and truely cares about her clients. She made sure I looked truely perfect on the day. She looked after me all day, and even made sure I took deep breaths when she could see me stressing and reminded me to smile. Canberra is truely lucky to have such a talented make up artist. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting their make up done! You won’t be disappointed.”
BRIDE – Sarah Trapnell – CANBERRA
With out a doubt my most favourite vendor! Lilah is an Angel in human form! I cannot say thankyou enough, she is just so much more than a makeup artist. She was so professional and in a time chaos it is this that really made the difference, she was prompt in replying to emails and had so much detail and help in her answers, she was on time and had everything you could need, and i mean EVERYTHING, she made me feel so at ease with the whole process! But it was her kind, funny, genuine personality that really helped to make our day perfect. All of us left saying that we wish she was our friend and we could hang out with her! Plus of course her makeup was completely perfect, through some challenging weather and every type of face she all made us feel beautiful inside and out. Thankyou Lilah, you truly were part of my perfect day.
BRIDE – Kaliana Salon – Gundaroo 2019
“Lilah was an absolute dream on my wedding day. She took her time with each girl and ensured everyone was 100% happy with their results – which, of course, we were beyond happy! She has a knack for beautiful natural makeup that looks amazing in person and in photos. I loved the way I looked but importantly, I *felt* incredible. My face didn’t feel cakey, it felt effortless. Couldn’t recommend Lilah enough”
BRIDE – Darla Smith – CANBERRA
“I cannot thank Lilah enough for being a part of my wedding day. Lilah’s professionalism and technique are unparalleled. My makeup was absolutely stunning – elegant and glamorous and I also felt like myself. Lilah surprised the whole family by managing to get my mum (who hasn’t worn anything but lipstick in years) excited about having her make-up done. Lilah gave her a really natural look, which she loved. Lilah was a joyous and relaxing presence on the day and made us all feel at ease. She went above and beyond for me, helping me with the finishing touches to my dress, shoes etc as I was heading out the door. The day wouldn’t have been the same without her.”
BRIDE – Heather Cork – CANBERRA
“Lilah is an absolute gem! She is organised, thorough, easy going, and a very comforting presence on such a big day! I don’t often wear a lot of make up so Lilah took great care in talking me through the steps, listening to what I wanted and providing me with options to ensure I felt comfortable, confident and like myself. Lilah is not only a great makeup artist, but also a savvy businesswoman. With clear and timely communications leading up to the wedding, she made planning a breeze. I was so pleased to have Lilah as part of my wedding day and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!”
BRIDE – Jess. B – CANBERRA
“Lilah is a consummate professional and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any bride! From my initial inquiries regarding availability, completion of a questionnaire to determine what services would be required, quote provided and booking made, I felt in completely safe hands. Lilah genuinely wanted me to look the absolute best version of myself on the day and delivered an individual look profile at my trial. I was blown away by her personal studio and specialised set up on the day. Needless to say, Lilah had the tools, products and skill to make me look and feel a million dollars. More than a make up artist; a confidant and friend when you are vulnerable on your big day! I may have been worrying about a million other things, but my makeup wasn’t one of them. Dead set legend.”
BRIDE – Kym Heart – CANBERRA
“Lilah is hands down amazing at what she does! My makeup was flawless on the day and she went above and beyond making sure every detail was perfect for me. Lilah, thank you again! You truly are such a wonderful down to earth human and I’m so happy I was able to book you in at such short notice xx”
BRIDE – Jaimee Zagar – CANBERRA
“Lilah did the makeup for my wedding in October 2019 and I could not recommend her more! Right from the beginning she was super professional yet so easygoing and friendly, I knew straight away we were in good hands. She is very thorough and followed up after my preview checking how my makeup went throughout the night and asking if we needed to adjust anything. On the day she just did her thing and made us all feel so at ease, it felt like having an extra (super talented makeup artist) friend with us getting ready. She even made us little touch up bags which were super thoughtful. Lilah is truly an artist and I felt amazing through the whole day and night, as did my bridesmaids.
BRIDE – Carmen Oakman – Canberra
“From the moment I contacted Lilah to the very end of our special day, Lilah was the consummate professional. She listened to my ideas and carefully guided me through looks, tips and techniques to get ready for the wedding. I have never felt so beautiful yet so me! Her artistry is magnificent. She is so skilful and knowledgeable and Lilah uses high quality products. On the morning of our wedding, she kept me calm and the mood upbeat and happy. She just went about her business with flawless perfection. I will never forget her kindness and care that morning. I cannot endorse Lilah strongly enough! Thank you Lilah xx
BRIDE – Belinda Andrews – CANBERRA 2019
” Lilah recently did my make up for my wedding day. Lilah’s kind, caring and helpful nature alongside her talent with makeup left me feeling like a million dollars . Lilah did a beyond amazing job and I could not have picked a more talented make up artist. Thank you again.”
BRIDE – Sarah- Jane Hall – CANBERRA 2019
“Lilah did the makeup for myself and three bridesmaids for my wedding in Canberra, and did an amazing job. She is such a lovely person and was a pleasure to have with us on the day as we got ready. We were all so happy with the job she did on our makeup, it looked beautiful in all the photos and lasted through the day. Could not recommend her highly enough!”
BRIDE – Libby Dreyer – CANBERRA
“Lilah is a beautiful person who did an absolutely amazing job on my wedding makeup! She was incredibly organised for both the trial and the wedding day, and brought a calm and fun loving vibe to the room. Her skills with makeup were flawless and I can’t recommend her highly enough!”
BRIDE – Jorja Zollinger – CANBERRA
“Lilah was my makeup artist for my wedding and she was AMAZING! Lilah made me and my bridal party feel so relaxed and special for the wedding day. Lilah is so knowledgeable and with the trial took so much time and care to understand what I wanted with my skin to get the best results. She was so accommodating to my questions and concerns and it resulted in the best day ever! You don’t need to look any further than Lilah! Thank You so much Lilah x”
BRIDE – Rachel McVicar – CANBERRA
“Lilah is incredibly talented, professional and most importantly fun – by the end of the day, she will feel like a real part of the family. Her attention to detail and knowledge of skincare really ensured that everyone was looking their best. Look no further – Lilah is the best.”
BRIDE – Charissa Wright – CANBERRA
“Lilah has a beautiful, natural style of make-up that subtly enhances your features but makes you feel like yourself. She was so wonderful to have around on the day, and did such a great job with me and the (very diverse) bridesmaids! Can’t recommend enough.”
BRIDE- Mara Matic – CANBERRA
“I was so incredibly happy with Lilah’s amazing work. She made me and my beautiful bridesmaids look and feel a million bucks! Very talented artist and good company. Highly recommended!!!
BRIDE – Bernie Witton – SYDNEY
“If you’re going to put your trust in someone to make your face look good on your wedding day, I highly recommend Lilah. FYI brides to be – avoid using a facial pore mask the week of your wedding. I did this, and due to sheer bad luck, my face was red for days – even the day of the wedding. I thought my skin was going to peel and fall off. Lilah is such a knowledgable makeup artist and was able to quickly improvise on a makeup solution to save my face. You could not tell my face was red once the magic had been done! Overall, an amazing and professional makeup artist you can count on!”
BRIDE – Jess. C – Canberra – 2020
“I was fortunate enough to have Lilah as my makeup artist for my wedding day. She brought so much more to my wedding day than talent with cosmetics. I felt beautiful in personalised makeup that complemented my favourite features and lasted all night, and my bride tribe’s makeup colours were adjusted to suit them individually. But most of all, my favourite feature of Lilah’s was her calming presence. From giving me scheduling hints for the day and a wonderful trial session full of chat and laughter, to her lovely warm personality keeping me focused and in the moment on the day, even when I got overwhelmed and had a mini-meltdown right after she finished my makeup.
I cannot recommend Lilah highly enough, and I am so happy that she agreed to be a part of my wedding team”
BRIDE – Emma. C – Canberra
“Lilah is an incredibly organised, versatile, caring and super talented artist! Highly recommend!!!”
BRIDE – Maybel Prats – Sydney
“Lilah accepted my last minute booking for my wedding in Goulburn this December (1h out of town for her with a 6am start!). She was professional and organised. She was lovely to speak with. She was very thorough in her initial consultation for my trial. On the day, Lilah showed up right on time and did absolutely perfect (and I mean perfect) makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. My makeup is stunning in our wedding photographs. I highly recommend Lilah. Thank you for making me look so beautiful.”
BRIDE – Satya Koutsoukos – GOLBOURN
“I chose Lilah as our wedding makeup artist and very happy I did. Lilah is knowledgeable, professional, works hygienically, friendly, easy to communicate with and most importantly super talented. Myself and my x5 bridesmaids absolutely loved Lilah’s work on the big day, perfection. Highly recommend.”
BRIDE – Esther Palmer – CANBERRA
“Lilah was an absolute delight to work with. She listened to everything I wanted and gave me options as to what would suit my face shape and colours. She is very talented, efficient and uses high quality products – my bridesmaids, mother and I could not have been happier.”
BRIDE – Alison G – CANBERRA
“OMG, we had the best day ever! I can’t thankyou enough for making me look the best I could on the day. You are a miracle worker. Every one commented on how beautiful I looked, even people at the Hyatt, after. Kate and Mum looked fabulous as well. You helped to make our day so special.”
BRIDE- Wendy Murkin- CANBERRA
Lilah is beyond talented – her high level of skill, accompanied by her unique artistic vision will ensure that you get the best results from your makeup artist. I highly recommend her
PHOTOGRAPHER – TINA NIKOLOVSKI – CANBERRA
“Cannot recommend Lilah enough, as she really delivered on my wedding day. I had a party of nine and everyone looked devine. The little touch-up makeup bags Lilah made for everyone was a very elegant touch.”
BRIDE – Kylie Carrall – SYDNEY
“I have worked with Lilah in both professional(Editorial shoots) and personal(Graduation make up) capacities. Lilah is both professional and repectful in the way she works. Her vast experience is obvious with her suggesting different makeup styles I never would have thought of. Lilah strikes the perfect balance of making suggestions but also following what I wanted as well. She works efficiently and hygienically and is an absolute delight to chat to. I can’t wait for future jobs together!”
MODEL – MIRIAM WALSH – CANBERRA
“Have worked with Lilah on a number of fashion editorials and she has met every task with commitment, passion and prowess. She’s a sweetheart on set and gets the job done. Will certainly work with her again and again x”
PHOTOGRAPHER – JAKE WEISZ – SYDNEY
“Lilah, thanks so much for been my artist for my wedding, not only are you amazing at your job, you are a beautiful person inside & out, your warm & welcoming personality really makes you such a pleasure & stress free to be around, my family was still talking about how lovely & helpful you were the next day. Thank you so much for the extra detail & help you went over & above. I can’t thank you enough”.
BRIDE – Emma Jordan – CANBERRA
Lilah is a wealth of knowledge.Her classes gave me the confidence to do my own make up on my wedding day.I learnt what colours and style of makeup was best for me and some helpful tips I would never have thought of that helped on the day.Highly recommend
BRIDAL MAKEUP CLASS – AMY CLEMENT – CANBERRA
“I could not have asked for a better makeup artist than Lilah. She was incredibly professional, highy skilled, organised, and lovely. I had my makeup trial and she did exactly what I asked for, and better. On my wedding day she did makeup for me, my three bridesmaids, and my mum. All were flawless, I cannot say enough how beautiful and perfect all the makeup was. She provided us all with touch up kits for the evening, which we barely used because her application was so good that we didn’t need it! On the day, Lilah’s presence was amazing – she was so calm, lovely and friendly. She definitely was an integral part of how well the day went in the lead up to the wedding. I really cannot thank Lilah enough for being such an important part of my day.”.
BRIDE – Georgia P – CANBERRA
“Lilah was an absolute pleasure to work with. Lilah made me feel comfortable and took the time to understand the look I was after. I don’t wear much makeup normally but I honestly felt so beautiful! My makeup was everything I could have hoped for and more! Would 100% recommend Lilah to any brides out there!
BRIDE – Maddison B. 2020
“I’m so grateful to Lilah for my entire wedding makeup experience. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I felt in her capable and organised hands. I only had a few days in Canberra for my wedding trials, and she still somehow accommodated me. On my wedding day itself, she gave me and my bridesmaids absolutely amazing looks that I still can’t stop marvelling at. Her little touch up bag that she supplied me was so thoughtful and perfect as well. Even though my scheduled touch up was delayed she was so professional about it, and didn’t let me feel bad about it at all, not wanting to pull me down on my wedding day. She’s absolutely the best, and I cannot thank her enough for being a part of my wedding. “
BRIDE – Susmita. C – CANBERRA
“I am so lucky to have had Lilah as our makeup artist for my wedding day, I honestly cannot recommend Lilah highly enough! She was such a calm and kind presence on what was of course such a stressful day. I have never looked or felt more beautiful in my life and I can thank Lilah for that. I had many concerns finding a suitable artist for my skin tone and nobody has ever matched my skin so well, my skin looked flawless all day! In addition to that, Lilah made my mother feel so happy after worrying about how she will look/feel as she never wears makeup. My bridesmaids looked stunning and the makeup complimented everything about them and their dresses. Lilah is clearly very skilled at accentuating and complimenting an individuals features, she really is an artist! The way she matches colours and listened to the styling I was after was fantastic. The products used were great too as all of us have sensitive skin. I would recommend Lilah to anyone and everyone and when I need makeup done in the future I will be back without a doubt!”
BRIDE – Samara. T – CANBERRA
“I was so amazed by Lilah’s work and how accommodating she was to what I needed! Super friendly and easy going and knew exactly what I wanted for my look, can highly recommend her!
BRIDE – Harmonie. B – CANBRERA
“Lilah not only did a wonderful job with both mine and my mum’s makeup, but she is also the most lovely person you’ll ever meet, and a true professional. I highly recommend her for your wedding day.”
BRIDE – Camille. C – CANBERRA
I visited Lilah for a one on one Makeup Fundamental Private class as well as custom eyebrow shaping and tinting. Lilah was fabulous! My eyebrows were expertly tinted to match my skin tone and shaped to frame my face. The class taught me to apply my makeup confidently and it was completely tailored to suit my features, colouring and lifestyle. I learnt how to identify my skin tone and how to select makeup that would enhance my features. I cannot believe I haven’t done this sooner. Highly recommend!
MAKEUP FUNDAMENTALS – KARLI WORLD – CANBRERA
“Lilah! thank you for all that you did for me today. So excited to see where this takes me. Love that you taught me just what I was after, how to do the everyday basics well, so appreciative hun!”
JAYS – WATSON, CANBERRA
“Today the lovely Lilah had me for my Makeup Fundamentals Private Class – having as big a passion that I have for makeup this class really helped me!
We worked through a number of things but finished with a simple yet stunning look.
I learnt how to enhance my facial features and the colouring of my skin.
Lilah helped me with my makeup and skincare application and showed me start to finish how to do a basic day to day look using my own products and tools.
Today I walked out of her beauty room feeling more confident than ever! I have worked with Lilah for a few occasions and I can easily say that every time I leave I’ve learnt something new!
So thank you Lilah, I really appreciate all the time and effort you put in to make one individual feel so special within themselves.
I’m looking forward to doing future classes with you. xo” –
