“Shelley’s professional attitude, creativity and enthusiasm as a makeup artist makes her an indispensable asset to my team! “
- Macushla Burke, Fashion Photographer.
“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!” - Lisa, Doncaster
I was so surprised it didn’t hurt at all!
“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.
“I’m frequently in front of a camera for acting roles and modeling shots.
Shelley is flawless in her spray tanning
and I know I will consistently look my best with her service.”
– James Pidgeon – Model/Actor.
“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.”
– Katherine, Box Hill.
“I love my new lips and eyebrows! My face is perfectly framed now and I feel that I don’t need as much makeup. Thank you for increasing my self-confidence and saving me hours of makeup application time a week.”
– Nicole, Hampton.
“Each time I have had my hair and make up session with Shelley it has been extremely professional. I have had lots of positive feedback from many people and have also seen the fantastic results in my television interviews.
The make up application is perfect.
The hair styles have always been appropriate for each different job description.”
– Naomi, U Nome Security.
“I was so surprised how natural my eyebrow tattoo looked that I decided to have my lips done on my second visit. I get compliments from my family and friends constantly about how much it has improved and transformed my face without being obvious.”
– Caroline Balinska, Melbourne.
“I have had many bad experiences with getting hideous orange spray tans and just about gave up until Shelley had tanned me. I love the Tuscan tan products she uses and am thrilled every time with her smooth application. I am so addicted to spray tanning, I get them now every 2 weeks.”
– Tiffany, Elwood.
“Making my sparse eyebrows look acceptable every morning was a time consuming chore and then by midday most of it had rubbed off. In the evening before a night out was even more difficult, bad light and eyesight only led to more frustration. The other problem was finding an eyebrow pencil that was the right shade and then by the time you needed a new one they had discontinued the colour! After having my eyebrows tattooed I now can start my day with confidence and a saving of time and frustration, it has been fantastic, freeing myself from all that stuff.
After the procedure my eyebrows looked too dark but Shelly assured me that 40% of the colour was the ink lying on the skin. I followed the post care rigidly, and after about 4 days the ink started to flake off and my eyebrows appeared. I was delighted with the result and 6 months later am still delighted. I have been complimented may times as to the shape and colour by makeup friends of mine, which is the real mark of the successful outcome. Shelly was patient, proficient, careful and approachable with any concerns that I had in the pre and post procedure period.”
– Anje Bos, South Yarra.
“I am in my mid 60’s, and it is very hard for me to apply my makeup every morning due to my lack of eyesight. Having
cosmetic tattooing has helped me feel more comfortable with how I look on a day –to- day basis
and I don’t have to worry about if I’ve got my makeup on straight.”
– Mary, Doncaster.
“For anyone wanting cosmetic tattooing done, I highly recommend Shelley from CTM. She was very professional, through and was also thoughtful within her technique, making sure I was happy with the makeup simulation and comfortable during the procedure”
– Katie Green, Kew.
“I have been getting spray tans from Shelley Bledsoe now for the past 8 months. I previously had tried other salons, but wasn’t happy with the results. Shelley’s spray tans are much more even and give that really natural look as though you have just been kissed by the sun or gone to the Gold Coast for the weekend. I see her every 7 to 10 days and I am hooked! I will never go out into the sun again. I highly recommend her talent, and don’t know how I could survive being white ever again.”
– Manuela Raschella, Toorak
