Hi my name is Maria, and I'm the Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist behind Mia Loves Pretty.

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. Over the years, I've also enjoyed working backstage at the Bridal Bazaar with Bobbi Brown and Wedded Wonderland, and have worked on editorials with photographers creating beautiful visionary concepts for magazines.

Beauty to me is about looking and feeling great and most of all, feeling confident in your own skin. I put my full personality and heart into creating looks for my clients.

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

xxxI love to create fresh, chic and alluring looks that enhances your best features and stays true to your personality.

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


I offer all my clients a bespoke service, either for editorial, bridal or any other event where they need to look and feel extra polished.
