about bonita

Bon_1040_BW260px.jpgBonita is based on Sydney's upper North shore, but services all of the City and Metropolitan areas and is completely mobile to you. She is keen and able to come to meet up for a Make-up Trial or just a casual chat over coffee to discuss your make-up requirements; whether that be for your Photo shoot, 21st Birthday party or your Wedding...

Bonita’s precise make-up abilities and years of experience with different customers of all ethnicities, their face and eye shapes, allows her to confidently create any look (by using corrective techniques) that her clients desire to have; that might be the Aussie “natural beauty” look... enhancing the natural bone structure and facial features with a gorgeous, polished finish... or something "more glam" making it sexy, smokey and dark for an evening occasion.

Being of Chinese background herself, Bonita is particularly popular with Asian Bridal clients who want assurance that their artist knows how to make-up Asian features, and to also have an understanding of the cultural traditions involved with the wedding day process. She has also pleased many Western/Caucasian Brides during her career and runs a successful wedding business named Your Big Day. Please see the Weddings page for more information.

Bonita also runs Beauty Workshops or Personal Make-up Classes for women who want a Lesson in Make-up artistry. These lessons are highly enjoyable, educational and will teach you how to competently achieve that certain special “look” that you’ve always dreamed of having. Make-up pampering parties with your good friends is a popular trend, lots of fun and great for a Girls' night out.

Please Email or Call Bonita for a quote or friendly chat.

"Thank you for your interest in Bonita hair & make-up. My dream of becoming a freelance make-up artist and hairstylist has been a gradual development over the last 13 years, however my interest in cosmetics, hair, and creating beautiful things has always been a passion of mine since I was a young child.

I absolutely Love Make-up! I use NARS, Stila, Calvin Klein, Lancome, Cargo, Shu Uemura, Ben Nye, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Shiseido, MAC… but I am also interested and fascinated by new people and personalities and it is sincerely a pleasure to be able to combine my two favourite things and develop a successful career in the Beauty industry.

I enjoy every aspect of this job, especially the moment I have transformed the image of someone and they cannot believe how Fabulous they look! It is a delightful and rewarding feeling to help make someone feel confident and looking their best so that their inner beauty shines…

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do, and feel free to contact me with any questions.

I look forward to meeting you sometime... and I wish you have a wonderful day!!"
