I’m Tara, coffee addict, a mom to 4 kids and an avid makeup lover! I’ve always loved cosmetics and skincare and although I’ve spent most of my adult life working in Financial Services, I’ve always practiced makeup artistry and studied under various industry professionals.
Looking back 3 years ago I had 3 kids all via IVF, twin daughters age 3 and another daughter aged 10 months. A few weeks before Luca turned 1 I found out I was pregnant. To say we were surprised was a huge understatement. It took sometime for us to digest the fact that we would have 4 children under 4 but 7 months later Finn was born and I would never change it for the world. What his birth did mean was that it was near impossible for me to return to my fulltime job in the Financial Services. Fast forward to 18 months ago and I decided it was time, time to make a career out of my passion and time to do something for me. So I started Black Lash Makeup Design!
My makeup philosophy is simple:
I love to do natural makeup looks and work with Brides and their families to help manage the stress of their very special day. I also want to make social events a less stressful time for moms. Being a mom myself I know that we are usually last on the priority list when it comes to getting ready to go out. My goal is to make a special occasion even more special by placing the focus back on you and alleviate some of that 'mad rush to get ready' stress by providing makeup for mums in Perth.
We all know the stress of trying to get yourself ready, kids playing in the bathroom, pulling the makeup you’ve had for 10 years out of the cupboard and drawing on the floor with it!
Or maybe you’ve tried to go to a counter and been intimidated by the gorgeous 20 year old with a black smokey eye trying to sell you products that you simply won't use!
I offer a mobile service or you can take some time out and visit my studio in Landsdale.
My services are affordable and give you access to quality products that you might otherwise not spend money on. More importantly, I understand that most of us just want to look like the best version of ourselves.
I listen to you to deliver the makeup look you want. I pride myself on being able to make people feel comfortable and at ease and I can relate to the struggles you may face with your skin.
You probably won’t leave my studio with a half moon cut crease and festival glitter but if that’s what you want, that’s ok too!
