Hey you! Thank you for visiting my little creative space and gallery.
My name is Leilani Ula Faletoese. A New Zealand born full blooded Samoan.
I'm a mother to three beautiful little humans, a passionate self-taught makeup artist and recently certified eyelash technician. I love what I do, but mostly love the beautiful people that I get to meet.
I'm based right here in the heart of the pacific, but makeup has also allowed me travel to the most beautiful of places.
I've been a freelance makeup artist for almost 6 years and with all the time and experience I've been blessed with, it's allowed me to learn the importance of understanding how to enhance the beauty that is already existent with all my clients.
There is a saying "makeup is great, but the right makeup is powerful", and there is so much truth in that.
My style is mostly geared to a more natural preference. I get beautiful faces to work on all the time but the challenge is applying makeup and allowing that natural beauty to still come through while merely enhancing it.
However I do love to create bold and fun looks. So if you're looking for the artist that will simply enhance your beauty but can also get creative, I'm your lady.
Have a look around and if you'd like to chat, get in touch!
"Every bride wants to feel beautiful on their wedding day, and Leilani helped me to feel like an absolute Queen on mine. Even without any pre-wedding trial she glided through her artisitry, executing a desired natural glam look for myself and four bridesmaids to perfection. Not only was the application flawless but it held for the entire day! I cannot speak highly enough of Leilani, with her mad skills, calming nature and beautiful soul. She is an asset to any bride on their wedding day. Thank you so much!"

"I have one of those faces that doesn't suit many popular makeup looks. Leilani understands this and tailors my desired 'look' to what compliments my features. I was very comfortable and at ease when she glammed me up for my Wedding Shoot. A few things worth mentioning: 1) I loved the way she highlighted my brown skin with the RIGHT tones instead of making me look grey, 2) Her lashes complimented my hooded eyes and made them slightly wider-- not droopy, 3) SHE'S CLEAN! Her products, brushes and fingers all feel and smell clean making the experience even better! 4) She Listens to her clients! I appreciate that she didn't try to convince me that a certain lip colour looked good when I was on the fence about it. I asked to try different shades and she accommodated me immediately. Thank you Leilani for making everything so stress-free for me during my shoot. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

“I highly recommend Leilani! I felt so beautiful on my wedding day, huge thanks to Lani. Having her do our make up was one of the first (and best) decisions I made while wedding planning. She is so amazing! I never ended up doing a trial with her, my schedule & flexibility just did not allow me to, but she had such wonderful raving reviews that I trusted it would be ok. And all her reviews were so right! She made me look and feel so gorgeous/beautiful, as well as all of my bridesmaids. Even before I met her, through all my email exchanges with her, she was so professional and so nice! If you’re thinking of booking Lani, act quick before she gets booked out!”
