Hi my name is Maria

and I'm the founder and brains behind Mia Loves Pretty.

Beauty to me is about looking and feeling good and confident in your own skin.

xxIt is about feeling pretty & confident in your own stride and if you need a bit of help bringing that to the surface/ in that department makeup or hair wise (or both!) or a want a bit of pampering, I'm here to help.

xx that loves to create fresh, chic and alluring looks that stays true to your personality.

xx experiences, passion in helping, my style,  based in Sydney but fully mobile and can travel anywhere

I am a qualified makeup artist with over ten years experience. I got my start gaining a bridal & fashion makeup qualification with Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy and along the way, I also picked up hair styling and love creating undone, effortless yet polished hairstyles.

xxGenerally, my makeup style is to create a look that has natural, fresh and luminous skin and amp up of your best features.

xxI've enjoyed working backstage at the Bridal Bazaar with Bobbi Brown and Wedded Wonderland, and also on occasion work on editorials with photographers creating beautiful visionary concepts for magazines.


I offer all my ladies (and men) a bespoke service, either for editorial, bridal or any other event where you need to look and feel extra polished.
