'' Charlie is a fantastic teacher for all aspects of makeup. My 16 year old daughter has learned to wear makeup that looks really nice for her age. She understands subtle daily makeup as well as a bit more for special occasions. Charlie has also taken her beyond the usual and helped her create amazing fantasy makeups. She literally turns heads when she and Charlie have created a “look”. All of this has helped her develop a really positive self-image. I love the atmosphere at the Facepaint studio. The students are fully absorbed in their makeup projects and working away in a calm and supportive energy. Charlie effectively includes students of all abilities into her classes, and the results speak for themselves as the girls confidently walk out of class and proudly show off their makeup creations.''


Testimonial - ‘Charlie Timmons is an inspiring makeup creator. Often wish she was still based in the UK as her artistry on both female and male artistes was flawless’ Diane Young Daytime Entertainment.

“ Charlie has always been driven, passionate and focused on the bigger picture even as far back as a make-up assistant just beginning her career. I am not in the least bit surprised that Facpaint Studio is now taking place. I know her students are very fortunate to have Charlie as their tutor. Charlie is not only talented, experienced and calm but patient, compassionate, gentle and highly professional. All of these qualities are required to balance out a budding succesful make-up artist.”

I received a lovely compliment today from a recent wedding in Kapiti from the Mother of the Bride " I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did for us all - for my daughters wedding. You achieved a lovely natural look - so much better than the caked on look that many people seem to do. The photos also show us looking lovely and natural, and I know that my skin at that time was a bit of a challenge. '' Jenny Campbell mother of the bride. Kapiti Autumn wedding 2016.

'' Promise to send photos as soon as I have some to hand. A beautiful job done. I was so pleased with how we all looked. Thank you so much ". Liz Chandler-Facepaint Studio's Autumn bride 2016.

Charlie was fantastic. A total total professional who made all of us look beautiful. Charlie came to the house where we were getting ready and was such a peaceful presence on a crazy day!

I really enjoyed learning new skills and using make-up I had never tried before.
