Christina gets featured

Stepping up her game and heading the Makeup Department and dabbling in the Wardrobe and Art Department for the feature film Inversus, Christina worked tirelessly to get the job done - and done well. While we can't spill all the secrets of the script, we can say - it's a bit of a rollercoaster ride - there are twists, and there are turns - stay tuned! 

Last shoot of the year!

When a house gets removed across the street, leaving an abandoned lot - some people see an eyesore, Siobhan sees a photoshoot opportunity. Dusting off some cobwebs, and flicking away some broken glass, a little bit of magic was made. Big props to Diva for having the blind faith to climb through some pretty grotty spaces to get the shot. Next time you see an ugly spot, tilt your head, squint one eye - and maybe, just maybe, you'll also see the magic. 

Find Me A Maori Bride

We lent Christina and her vast makeup skills to an awesome new Kiwi TV show - Find Me a Maori Bride. The premise - two half maori men, estranged from their culture need to re-find their heritage in order to claim an inheritance. So our wahine worked tirelessly, 11 hour days, for 4 weeks to make up the wonderful cast including Cohen Holloway, Matariki Whatarau, Siobhan Marshall, Amanda Billing and lots of goodies, come to life on screen. Between Christina hitting the road for the final days of shooting, staying at a Marae and FINALLY trying her first hangi, she kicked it with a great crew and a fun experience - it's not often you enjoy getting up at 5am for work. But that's the beauty of what we do.

Love really is, all around us

We have been busy little bees with both makeup and photography for weddings at the moment! Getting married is so in right now. And it was such a pleasure to be a part of Bern & Murph's special day. As well as being our good friends with the couple, we got to work behind the scenes to help bring it together for them. So to this couple, and all the other weddings we have coming up - congratulations! xxxx

Christina steps it up

This months been all about Christina's time to shine. After dusting off her camera, she's been kicking arse and taking names in the photography scene. 

She's a one woman machine, makeup artist/photography extraordinaire. 

But what better way to see it for yourself than to come on in and taste it for yourself!

Call the studio to book a shoot with Christina this month only,  and it will only cost you $25! ZING!

Weddings are lush

Having come to our studio for a makeover and photoshoot, we were quickly requested as the photographer and makeup artist for Mary's upcoming wedding. A beautiful outdoor ceremony set in a sprawling Kumeu vineyard, there were tears, laughter, dancing and romancing. All the things that make up a wonderful day. Congrats Mary & Kris.

Rugby. Not just for the men.

Kingsland is reaching fever pitch with the Rugby World Cup taking over. It may be a sport for the men, but for the ladies, there needs to be something in it for you too. 

They may come for the men in shorts, but they'll stay for the makeovers and photobooth style photo shoot. 

Through the weeks that are the Rugby World Cup- come on in to see us, we're boasting a little diddy of a makeover special. Daniel Carter will be in Kingsland, one must always look their best for times like these. 

NZFW

For the second year running, the Ruby Jack gals were shootin’ and lootin’ at New Zealand Fashion Week. 

With five labels to shoot, we were running around like headless chickens, headless chickens who did manage to squeeze in a manicure though.

A special shout out to Egoist who held their first show in dominating fashion. Geddit? They, along with MISTER, stole the hearts of fashion week. 

The bubbles flowing, the fashion colourful, the camera snapping- another successful Fashion Week done!
