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.


Stay tuned for more happy customers. You can also view more testimonials here –

I am available to assist you with your wedding plans seven days of the week, including after hour bookings. Please note – the best time to do your trial is during the day, so we have lots of natural light to work with 🙂

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?

Mineral cosmetics – what you may not be aware of….

If you haven’t heard about all the benefits of mineral cosmetics by now then one must wonder “where have you been?!” As a consumer myself I understand how confusing it can be when making a purchase. We see new brands hit the market constantly so our choices are endless. Whatever you may or may not know about mineral cosmetics it doesn’t matter because I have put together an article to get you up to speed on everything you need to know, including the good and the bad of mineral make-up and how to safely choose your products.

Don’t believe the hype:

Beware that just because a product mentions the word “mineral” in the name, it does not necessarily mean it is a pure mineral product. And don’t be fooled into thinking they all contain natural ingredients. Some companies still use harmful chemicals and only have to mention the word mineral to fool the more unsuspecting of us into thinking it must be good.

A lot of the commercial cosmetic brands jumped straight on the mineral bandwagon once word got out on how wonderful minerals are. And when they did, what do you think the number one thing was that stood out against their more natural branded competitors? Price! They retailed their goods at a fraction of the cost of the natural cosmetics companies, and the reason for this is because they use cheap and nasty ingredients to bulk up the product, and only a tiny amount of the pure mineral ingredients responsible for giving the product any integrity and our skin any benefits. And how do they retain sales despite selling lower quality goods? The same way commercial brands have done for years – clever marketing, big budgets, fancy packaging and pretty faces plus big name celebrities. Learn to look beyond that by equipping yourself with facts about what matters the most – the ingredients. After all, you’re paying for the product to make you feel and look good, not for packaging that’s only going to make your make-up bag look good! When you use products filled with chemicals and fillers you potentially buy into long term skin and body issues – not such a good look in the end.

Become ingredient savvy:

Learn about what goes into products and what they do to your skin and body. Once you know which ingredients to avoid, making purchases will be so much easier. Below are just a handful of common ingredients which you are likely to find if you pick up a couple of products you have in your make-up purse right now.

Some typical fillers include:

  • Talc – known to block pores (comedogenic), linked to lung problems and known as being a carcinogen

  • Kaolin – also known as clay; can be drying on the skin

Some harmful ingredients to avoid:

  • Bismuth Oxychloride – a common addition to mineral powder foundations; known to cause itching, breakouts and irritation to some skin types

  • Mineral oil – a by product of petroleum, used widely in cosmetics and skincare as well as baby care products; known as a skin irritant and to block pores.

  • Dimethicone – used to give products slip, used widely in primers and many skincare products; can suffocate the pores by adding a layer over the skin, leading to skin breakouts and pore blockages.

  • Parabens – used widely in skincare, cosmetics and hair products as a preservative; known to be linked to cancer.

  • Isopropyl/alcohol – known to be ageing and drying on the skin.

A few extra things to consider when making a purchase:

  • Is the brand cruelty free? You would be amazed to learn of some of the commercial brands still test on animals. This practice is totally unnecessary and should be banned.
  • Are you paying extra for packaging and big budget marketing? It’s easy to get drawn in by pretty packaging but in the end it’s what’s in the jar that counts and in this economic climate value for money is what consumers should be investing in. 

I hope this helps clear some confusion about the differences between some of the leading brands of natural mineral companies and the commercial brands we have grown up with. Feel free to leave a comment or contact me with any queries. And be sure to take a look at the range in the Karma store; we offer a money back return on all goods plus personalised service over the phone, email, or if you live in Melbourne make a booking to see the range in the comfort of your own location  –
