Getting double booked by the other artist was actually the best thing that happened because you were an absolute blessing. So calm and professional, made everything so easy.
Debra is Ah- Mazing!
Her studio is divine! Everything was simply stunning, and what a creative, talented artist Debra is.
She not only made a space where my wife and I could be on our wedding day with our tribe, she pandered to our requests of being unable to see each other once we started to get ready!
We all felt incredibly pampered and the make up was next level! We all looked stunning!
Now I need to find more reasons to get my make up done!
Thank you for being a calming grounder on the day of this crazy wedding! OMG You really were angel! I’m only just now looking at the photos our official photographer took (would you believe!) and got to “re-live” this candid moment with you. “No, sit down Jessica!” Thank you thank you thank you… I hope that you have been well! And thank you for being an inspiration too Ty… Xoxoxoxo
Working with Debra Kelly was one incredible experience. Her talent lies in her ‘creative’ artistry and this is what sets her apart from other make-up artists. The manner in which she consults with a client is respectful and she endeavours, at all times, to engage with the personality of an individual.
In our session, her eye for detail was amazing. She made suggestions for a colour palate, clothing, photographic poses and encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone which was done gently and encouragingly.
She knew what would look appealingly stunning and as our time together went on, I trusted her ideas even more. She did not let me down. My session with her made me feel beautiful, confident, courageous and creative.
I absolutely love the end results and would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone who wants to look and feel fabulous.
My mum used to tell me ‘If a makeup artist cant do justice to your face, better leave it plain and simple because im sure you will look better without any makeup on’.
It was always a challenge looking for an MUA/hairstylist who can greatly enhance my features and do a natural glow type of make-up without overdoing and putting layers of foundation and other related stuff. Until I met Debra Kelly, I never did expect I would find someone endowed with the right skills to do some wonders with my face, especially with my eyes! Debra is an extraordinarily talented MUA/hairstylist who is so passionate with every stroke or application she does.
She is very particular with cleanliness and sanitising her tools, devotes alot of time assessing the skin tone and matching ti with the right shades and significantly listens to het clients desire. Debra is indeed a ‘Fairy Godmother’ who turned my dream into a reality.
A piece of advice, never miss a trial makeup/hairstyle with Debra before your big day as you will definately get more than your money’s worth.
The flower backdrop that you created is absolutely stunning, It is a piece of art! You are such an amazing artist! My sister just loves it and she is so excited for Krista to be surprised on her wedding day. She says Thank you sooo much.
I contracted Debra to do my hair, make up, set design and styling for a professional video shoot to upgrade my business to a more professional corporate look. Debra went above and beyond taking care of everything. All I had to do was turn up. Debra made the whole process fun alleviating any stress about being on camera. Thankyou. xx
The absolute best makeup artist I’ve ever had. Complimented everything perfect for my facial features, made me look phenomenal for 3 different looks, classic, beauty and avante-garde. I recommend her for any shoot, party, wedding, etc. Great energy too. Looooove yewwwww!
As a Professional Photographer for over 16 years, I have worked with many Makeup Artists both here in Australia, and overseas. I have had the great pleasure of working with Debra and was genuinely surprised by the experience.
I have never worked with a more Professional Makeup Artist in all these years. Her dedication to perfection is flawless and her abilities endless. Her personality makes all feel valued and at total ease with her as she listens to all involved to create your exact desired outcome.
Debra is not just a Makeup Artist, she is a top stylist in all she does from the Makeup, Hair and event staging a set for the Photographer. It was a pleasure working with Debra and now that i have found her, i will never let her go.
I did have the pleasure one time to be under your brushes, and I really loved the look on my face, and also enjoyed the process and the explanations you provide during the “experiment”! I did learn a few things about how to take care of my skin and how to apply make up. Thank you so much.
