Professional Makeup & Hair Services
Professional Makeup Artist: DID YOU KNOW that makeup for sessions is very different than every day makeup application??? Through editing we lose 30% of the makeup applied. (think stage performers, they must cake makeup on so the people in the back can see it, this is virtually the same effect).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Due to this, makeup is bolder than everyday. The makeup artist will enhance features you already posses and also diminish temporary things like pimples. The work of the Makeup Artists also include things like evening your skin tone or taking our redness, which helps with my editing of your images. Most women do not realize all that goes into their services and think that if they know how to apply makeup on themselves every day that it will be the same. In truth, these women have had schooling and know exactly what you the client and I need applied so that you look your absolute best for your shoot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another key factor to consider is: It also allows for pampering and settling those nerves while we chat during that time. You are given coffee or tea, get settled into the environment, nerves lessen, I get to know more about you & truly connect before starting your photoshoot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don't get the add-on service of the makeup & hair, you arrive and we get ready for into the shoot, which means no time to settle or ease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I strongly recommend the services of makeup & hair to all my clients.
The cost for Leanne, her talent, high quality makeup and luxury real mink lashes is $140, payable to artist day of your session.
Hi, I’m Leanne Smith. I learned of my passion for makeup and fashion when I started modelling at a young age of 11. I was taught etiquette and how to walk like a lady and grew confidence. Throughout my teen years I advanced in modelling and became more aware of my health and fitness as my body matured. I went back to school and became a personal trainer which was such a rewarding career on so many levels. My passion for self care and looking my best and living my best grew leaps and bounds. My current position is working for an Australian Clean Skincare brand as a Regional Territory Manager. I started Dollhouse Beauty because I wanted to give back to women in as many ways as possible. With my background in beauty, health & wellness and coaching I knew I had the gift of what I have learned over the years to share and I enjoy meeting so many beautiful women along the way. I am a professional makeup artist with 30+ years of experience and an ability to bring out the inner beauty in every women my brushes are so fortunate to grace. I look forward to making you Shine!
Words from Leanne about the work we do:
Shannon Smith is a women with so much passion. Her soul and heart is the kindest I’ve ever known. Every single client who walks into the studio is greeted with so much positivity and love. She respects who they are and understands the insecurities that come with a boudoir session and the vulnerability. The journey for most of these women are incredibly deep and Shannon and myself give them the absolute respect and confidence they deserve. Shannon has created a Women’s empowerment group and with her large following she inspires, motivates, instills self worth, dignity and most importantly SELF LOVE I am blessed to be apart of this work, the clients journey, the laughter that fills the room and the tears that are shared in a comfortable safe place for these women to express themselves regardless of SIZE, SHAPE, COLOUR and PERSONAL STRUGGLES. I truly hope these women know that as much as they feel we give to them, they give so much back to us I truly admire each and everyone of these beautiful unique women and they touch my heart in a way that is indescribable ... they make me a better person and teach me so much about my own insecurities and self worth. So thank you to all who my makeup brushes have graced their skin and all the gorgeous photos that reflect who they are as strong confident women in a world that isn’t so kind at times. This is a journey about LOVING YOURSELF regardless of what anyone else thinks .... it’s empowering and these women come out of this experience with so much more than they walked in with.
Xoxoxo Don’t ever underestimate the strength of a women ... we are warriors and a tribe that is a force to be reckoned with
