My cosy new salon!

Karma Beauty recently moved and is now set up in a brilliant new location on Belmore Rd, right near Coles. Only 5 minutes drive from the old spot in Balwyn, some of the perks of the new salon include no parking restrictions, undercover parking, wheelchair access and less traffic noise. I love my new location and clients have also been enjoying the change of scene and cosiness of the new set up!

Karma weddings

I am always flattered whenever someone asks me to be a part of their wedding plans (and I love going to a good wedding too!) but nothing pleases me more than knowing I have lived up to their expectation by delivering a service that they were happy with and help bring their special day together.

Some recent wedding parties –

Bride with soft neutral makeup

Bridesmaid with neutral tones for lips and eyes. Karma lip shine in 'Elegance'.

Bridesmaid with smokey eyes and soft pink/purple gloss. This makeover features some colours coming to the Karma range soon!

Bride with neutral eye tones (Karma shadows in Cocoa, Vanilla Cream, Rose Gold & Beige Sheen) and lip shine in 'Dazzle'.

Bridesmaids with smokey eyes (plum & lilac tones) teamed with soft neutral lip shades.

Bride Eileen opted for Napoleon Base, which I teamed with Karma Mineral Cosmetics blush in Dusty Rose, Cocoa Matte Shadow, Peach Matte Shadow, Beige Sheen Shimmer shadow. The result is a gorgeous natural glowing bride.

Bridesmaid Skye with a soft and glamorous makeover. I used soft pinks and purples to compliment her blue eyes, tanned skin and her lavender dress.

Bride Anna getting the finishing touches by her bridal party. Anna wanted a more natural look, so I used brown and soft peach tones on her eyes, peach blush, soft bronze on the rest of face and a very soft peach/pink lip gloss.

Asha looking stunning as a traditional Indian bride. This look was acheived using Karma Mineral Cosmetics in - Antioxidant Foundation Olive4, Peach blush, Rose Gold Shimmer Shadow, Beige Sheen Shimmer shadow, Cocoa Matte Shadow. Apricot Glow Illuminisor. Lipstick by MAC.






I was delighted to receive some wonderful feedback from some gorgeous brides recently, and with their permission, have decided to share with my readers.


Anna with her bridesmaids.

Thanks so much for doing our makeup. I found you and your assistant to be very professional on the day, working to a rather tight schedule and taking everyone’s suggestions and wishes into account. You were very patient and persistent. The make-up itself was great, and lasted all day, as you can see in the photos. I’ve never looked so glamorous, and was thrilled with the end result!” Anna M. Melbourne, Sep 2009.

I would also like to thank my lovely assistant, Rita, who helped me on this occasion as we had a large group to do in a short time. She did the makeup for the first and third bridesmaid. “Thanks Rita, I couldn’t have done it without you!”

Another gorgeous bride whom I made over for her special day back in 2008 has shared her feedback below –

” I found her ad in the Bridal Directory, called her, best price around. Very helpful and genuine. Met her for a trial, was really happy about the job. On the wedding day she did really well for my flower girl and myself. She gave us such a natural look, good color choice for our skin tone. Make up lasted the whole ceremony, picture shots and reception. I was really happy and I will definitely recommend her. Good attitude, good price, good service and good job.” Joelle, Melbourne 2008.

Another beautiful bride, Tami, found me via my True Local profile and had this to say after her wedding – “I was looking for a good make-up artist to do my make-up on my wedding day. Because it was a second wedding I was not having a bridal party, so I only needed the make-up for myself. I attended bridal shows and contacted several artists, all of whom advised me that they would not be interested in my business because the job wasn’t “big” enough. When I found Jolene she was extremely friendly, genuine and willing to help. Nothing was too much trouble and she was at my door when she said she would be there – for my trial and my big day.
Jolene takes a lot of pride in what she does and she is brilliant. On my wedding day she was at my house VERY early and with a smile on her face. This was at my request of course.
I had the most fantastic wedding day and everyone commented on how beautiful I was and how my make-up was so amazing. My skin glowed (thanks to mineral glow!) and it felt so good! I didn’t feel self-conscious or worried that I had too much make-up on either. It felt so natural, which is very important to me. I don’t like a lot of make-up.
Thank you Jolene for your great service and professional tips. I am loving the mineral make-up too. Never will I return to my old make-up kit and bad habits. I continue to get compliments on my skin to this day. Amazing how the right advice about correct application techniques and great product can make such a difference.
I would have no hesitation recommending Jolene to anybody looking for a true professional.
Thank you, again Jolene. I look forward to my next delivery of product!
Kindest regards, Tami Hassett. Malvern VIC.”

Tami is seen here with her friends, and her son in law, on her

wedding day. How stunning does she look?

Introducing my next bride, Jane, who married in summer of  2009.  Jane and her bridal party were looking for a natural finish, with light make-up that didn’t feel too heavy or cakey. I was pleased to hear from Jane who reported that the make-up was up to the expectation of all the girls in the party. Jane can be seen here getting all dolled up. And how beautiful is she as a natural bride?

Online booking

Most of you will know that you can book online anytime, via my website. For new clients, you can also jump on the website and book at any time!

It’s a simple procedure however some clients have reported some issues, and these seem to relate to booking via a phone or notepad. I recommend booking using a standard PC for ease of use. If you have any problems with the system, please let me know, along with your preferred date and time for the appointment, and I’ll schedule it in on my end. In the meantime, reported issues have been passed on to the company who make the app. I’ve recently trialled a new system, however was by far a more superior system for my business needs, so I have decided to persevere with it. I apologise for any inconvenience the booking issues have caused anyone.
