Pleased to meet you!
Style is not about perfection. It is about owning your own sense of style regardless of age, size or trouble spots. It is about the know-how to achieve style and then determining what will define your style. Many women fear going to stylist as they are often intimidated by a perfect looking model who dresses so well you instantly feel second grade and would never get naked in front of them in a million years! We hear you!
Rest easy as we are a team of real (normal) people who come in all shapes, sizes and ages. We have had babies, gained weight, lost weight, been ill, lost hair through chemo, have wrinkles, have trouble spots, been corporate high flyers, at home Mums…you name it. All of us are style specialists who are genuine, approachable, honest with our opinions and know our stuff. No snobs welcome here! We are real women who get it and want to help you.
Unlike other styling businesses, this is not just one stylist’s name on the door but rather a team where you get to choose which stylist might work best for you plus we can handle larger corporate or special experiences such as hens events if you need more than one of us.
We have one common goal to help women and men feel more confident in their own skin and be their best self.

Makeup Artist & Stylist
Sandra is all about empowering woman to look and feel their best. Whilst she specialises in make-up artistry, she also has an eye for styling. Her philosophy is simple, she aims to share her insider knowledge with women to transform their look or teach techniques that stay with them for life.
With over 15 years experience, Sandra is a Sydney based make-up artist specialising in fashion and bridal makeup and her passion is evident from the minute she picks up a brush. Whilst working in New Zealand as a makeup artist for prestigious brand Estee Lauder, Sandra went on to secure a position most would only dream of, as retail manager for MAC Cosmetics before taking the plunge in 2006 and went freelance concentrating on the fashion and bridal arena.
Today, Sandra has taken this incredible experience and broaden her skills beyond make-up and is giving back to the women of Sydney having recently been recruited as a Senior Makeup Artist on the National Laura Mercier Team.
Courtney has been working in the fashion industry for over 10 years now, with diverse roles including working behind the scenes in a modelling and photography agencies. She has been a buyer for some of Australia’s biggest brands to eventually finding her love in styling. She worked in retail whilst studying a fashion course with FBI College, and was very quickly offered a buying role with The Oroton Group.
Eventually life and love got in the way and she moved to France for 2 years, travelling the world researching fashion from every culture.
A return to Australia led her back to more buying roles, however, marriage and children were the plan. Three children later and her first foray back in to the fashion world has been working with one of Australia’s best stylists, dressing some of Australia’s top celebrities, as well as visiting internationals, working on shows such as The X Factor and So You Think You Can Dance.
Courtney has also worked with some of our country’s top CEO’s, remaking and reinvigorating their wardrobes, creating pages and pages of ‘look book’ ideas, for women only to have to roll of out of bed and choose their outfit from one already laid together in a book beside your bed.
However her real love and passion is to work with women, and men, who are uncertain of themselves, their style, their confidence or simply don’t have time to think about and put together outfits.
