"Melbourne model Teisha Lowry loves Bali. She really loves Bali. In fact, she loves it so much that it inspired her natural skin care range INDAH, meaning 'beautiful' in Balinese.
Teisha lives by the Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana, meaning harmony with the environment, humanity and the divine,
and this principle is woven into her nourishing range of balms, body bars and body butters".

Been thinking of getting a cosmetic tattoo? Why wait?

"I had almost non-existent eyebrows and had always wanted to get them tattooed. I resisted because of my low threshold to pain. At the consultation Shelley made me feel at ease about the procedure. I just love my eyebrows and the only regret I have is that I didn’t get them done sooner!"

Gentlemen.. Are you suffering from a lack of eyebrow definition, alopecia, or would like to correct asymmetrical facials features.

Cosmetic Tattoo Your Lips- Lip Line & Blend Procedure

Kiss lipstick good-bye. Cosmetic tattooing can change the size and shape of the lips as well as the colour to correct imbalances. This procedure helps prevent lipstick from bleeding into the surrounding skin, as well as restoring the natural pigment of your lip line, commonly lost through sun damage.
(Keep in mind these photos were taken immediately after the procedure, the pigment will fade 40-50% to match a more natural lip colour)


  • With demanding lifestyles – with little time to apply makeup
  • Prevention of lipstick bleeding
  • Loss of natural lip pigment line, commonly lost through sun damage, or pale lips
  • Allergy sufferers – sensitive to conventional makeup
  • Physically active - who want to look great in all their activities

Shots from my makeup portfolio

Sophies wedding

"I have been working with Shelley professionally for many years in the fashion industry. Shelley's work as a make-up artist is unique and effortless. Shelley understands make-up artistry intimately from her extensive work as a model, being a canvas for make-up as well as bringing her own personal style to her work. I have worked with many make-up artists over the years but recently chose Shelley to do the make-up for my wedding , as I believe she has a natural intuitive approach to her work, bringing out the individual beauty of each of those she works with while remaining true to their personality. I couldn't have been happier with the results from my wedding and got a huge amount of positive feedback from guests. My bridesmaids were delighted with Shelly and couldn't stop commenting on how nice she was and what a difference that had made to our day. I couldn't recommend Shelley highly enough."
- Sophie Ruolle (O'Dwyer), Essendon.

Face Painting

Check out the front page of the Sunday Herald tomorrow. I face painted kids, under 10 team supporting the socceroo's ;0)

We offer a large range of stencils, designs and sizes in any colour. They are great fun for birthday parties, events, or simply to treat yourself and your friends at a special occasion.



Look at the transformation!
Clients testimonial... "I remember for years, I felt held back from doing anything adventurous due to my drawn on eyebrows, I was afraid that if I went swimming or overheated, my eyebrows would disappear. Since having the tattoo, my whole life has changed. I feel a sense of freedom."

Working on the Orbit Shoe Campaign was so much fun! The idea was to achieve a sort neutral (like) henna tattoo from the neck running down to the knee. I went to spotlight and chose several old school drapes with different patterns on them. I molded them around the models body creating my design. After tattooing her, I finished the look off with a Tuscan spray tan.


Love the story of Indah

INDAH, meaning beautiful in Balinese, is made with love. Using the ancient traditions of Tri Hita Karana, every ingredient is hand selected, then carefully blended to create a perfectly balanced product. Organic herbs, spices, fruits and flowers, picked fresh from our farm in Ubud, will leave skin feeling soft, smooth and nourished. It’s your own small piece of Bali, where you can indulge your senses in the extraordinary.


Enhance your eyebrows.. it makes all the difference!

Spray Tanning

Spray tanning is the healthy alternative to achieving a beautiful tan! Why not look tanned and gorgeous all year round while avoiding the suns harmful UV rays and solariums? Achieve a deep golden tan within 10 minutes of application with no orange undertones, a natural shade to suit each skin tone. Tuscan Tan has no smelly odour, or sticky residue, and dries immediately.
