GENEVIEVE SILCOCK

OWNER, MAKEUP ARTIST & BROW TECH

With a background in business, marketing & events, gaining my makeup artistry qualification from The Makeup School in Ponsonby, Auckland back in 2014 was at the time more of a personal achievement rather than a career driven one. I was still living in my home city, Auckland and working in the corporate industry, doing makeup for school balls and weddings on the weekends was a creative outlet that I loved, but at the time couldn't see how I'd ever be able to walk away from corporate life. 

All that changed when my husband and I decided to move to Queenstown in 2015, within 6 months of living here I'd gone from doing makeup on the weekends to doing makeup for weddings everyday of the week, and so EVE Makeup Artistry was born.

When I first arrived in Queenstown there were two things I noticed about beauty, there was no where to buy makeup and most of the salons & spas were very tourist focused. I've spent the last 3 years focusing on growing my business & team as makeup artists, so opening this salon and now being offer a wider range of treatments, services and products to Queenstown locals is a real dream come true for me.  During this time I have also gained my Lash & Brow Technician qualification from Nouveau Lashes.

When I'm not doing makeup, I'm learning about new products & makeup techniques, along with keeping up to date with the latest fashion and beauty trends. When I'm away from my desk you'd find me out 4WDing, camping and hiking with my husband Ben and our dog Yuki during the summer months. During the winter you'll find me on the mountain snowboarding or ski-touring.

SHJATYLA DOS-SANTOS

BEAUTY THERAPIST

Beauty therapy and makeup has always been a passion of mine since high school. I absolutely love making my clients feel amazing about themselves every time they leave the salon. Doing nails, makeup and waxing are the treatments I enjoy the most, and I'm always work hard to keep up to date with beauty trends and treatments. I loving meeting new people and this is why I'm so passionate about my job and this industry. 

I'm a born and bred Southland girl, growing up in a little city called Invercargill. I gained my diploma in beauty therapy at Southern Institute of technology. I moved to Queenstown in 2017 and spent my first 12 months here working at an NZ award winning salon in Arrowtown.

When I'm outside of work you will find me learning about new makeup products & techniques, exploring the beautiful outdoors Queenstown has to offer, and catching up with my friends and family!

FERNANDA FERREIRA

NAIL TECHNICIAN

I grew up in the beauty industry with my Mother owning her own salon in Brazil, at 13 years old I discovered my love for nails and spent my spare time doing all of my friends nails. In 2010 I got my first qualification for as a Nail Technician and Makeup Artist in Brazil and have worked in the beauty industry ever since. 

I moved to New Zealand with my husband in 2015 with our son, who was 1 year old at the time. We chose this country and specifically Queenstown because of its tranquility, beauty, and safety for our son to grow up happy and healthy. I have continued to work in the beauty industry since living in New Zealand and love getting to be creative in my job, I get so much satisfaction in knowing my clients leave the salon happy.

I place a lot of importance on continuing to keep up to date with the innovations in the beauty industry, and am always training to be able to provide my clients with new nail styles and designs.  In my time off, I enjoy spending time with my family, gathering with friends for a barbecue and listening to music. I love camping, fishing and traveling around this fascinating country I now call home.

NICOLE STANDRING

MAKEUP ARTIST, MANICURIST & SPRAY TANNER

After wanting to further my passion in Make up Artistry I left my home town Dunedin in 2016 and moved up to Wellington to pursue studies in Makeup Artistry at Weltec, from there I moved to my first job in the industry at Estée Lauder and gained a wealth of knowledge on makeup, skincare and health. After my time was up in the North island I moved back down south to Cromwell with my partner and have been working at a beauty therapy clinic, while there I gained the skill of nail art as a manicurist while continuing to do makeup.

Among many reasons the two most important aspects of why I love the industry I am in is 1. You are forever learning new tricks of the trade! It's an ever growing industry with new specialties and techniques and that gives me such drive and motivation to better my skills everyday. And 2. Is the fulfilling feeling of satisfying a client and making them feel the best they can with any service you perform, I'm very much a people person and this alone is enough of a reason to love my job. 

In my spare time I love socialising with friends, enjoy going for walks admiring our awesome scenery and I don't mind having a wine either! I always appreciate living in such a beautiful part of New Zealand and try not to take it for granted and enjoy our great backyard.

JESSICA LAWLER

NAIL TECHNICIAN & SPRAY TANNER

I never intended on doing nails for a job but now I cant imagine life without it. Nails have always been one of my favourite ways of expressing myself and my personality...even wearing baggy track pants and a hoodie you can look down and see your perfectly manicured nails and feel a whole lot better about yourself. I love working with other like minded girls at EVE because to be in this industry you need to have a lot of passion and some mad skills so you are never surrounded by people that aren’t enjoying themselves and always doing an amazing job at the same time!

I have spent 95% of my life as an Aucklander but have spent time living in Christchurch and Queenstown. When I moved back to Auckland from living in Christchurch, my sister's nail salon was doing well enough that she needed someone to help. I have been lucky enough to have been trained one on one and in group classes by an award winning nail artist and founder of Monaco Nail Academy. I have many friends in the industry & we are constantly keeping each other up to date on the forever changing trends and information. As much as I absolutely love doing nails, I also have a massive passion for real estate so when Im not creating beautiful nails I am usually viewing gorgeous homes as either a sales rep or a property manager. If not, you’ll find me at home enjoying a home cooked meal with my partner Cody and our zoo (two crazy dogs and a dog sized cat)

TAYLOR FRIESEN

RECEPTIONIST

I absolutely love the beauty industry and have been wanting to work in a beauty salon for sometime now. I’ve been working in and out of hair salons as a salon coordinator for the past four years, the highlight for me during that time was working at Suki’s for 2 years which is Vancouver’s number 1 hair salon. In 2017 I decided to go travelling & moved to Australia, I went home briefly in 2018 & meet my Kiwi partner who was travelling around Canada at the time, which lead me to follow him back to New Zealand & moved to Queenstown in November 2018.

I absolutely love how much Queenstown reminds me of home! I enjoy working with the EVE girls so much, it awesome being apart of an amazing team helping to serve Queenstown locals. The friendly faces I get to see everyday really makes coming to work each day a real pleasure.

In my spare time you will find me either baking, socialising with my friends, or enjoying a wine. My partner and are also avid campers, and love to take any chance we can get to get out of Queenstown and see more of this beautiful country. 

 

APRIL ROBINSON

I trained in Dunedin & have been a Beauty Therapist since 2015 and a Nail Tech since 2017. I had my own business as a Beauty Therapist from home during the first 2.5yrs I lived in Queenstown, before having my son. I lived in Kingston & have two children, a wonderful husband and “Wasabi” our cat. I love all things beauty related and have a strong passion for striving for perfection and going the extra mile for my clients while being friendly and approachable.

On my days off, I love to get into my craft room and also spend time with my kids, catch up with friends and also do yoga once a week, for some much needed me time. I love working at Eve Beauty, the team of girls here and our Boss “G” are so supportive and encouraging, I couldn’t have asked for better. 

 

PAIGE SHIPSTONE

BEAUTY THERAPIST

The beautiful Queenstown is where I have made my home since 2016, however I am originally from England. I first left home to travel where I visited Asia and Australia, and now New Zealand which is the most stunning country and my favourite place to call home. 

After travelling from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South of New Zealand, I made the best decision to choose Queenstown as my home for its beautiful changeable seasons. Here is where I continued my beauty career working at various halls, spas and salons in my time.

My qualifications within beauty are tinting, waxing, manicures, pedicures etc. Also the LVL lash lift, facials including dermaplaning and special occasion makeup. One of my many favourite things about beauty is having a good old chat to my clients which always makes my day! I love all things beauty and fashion with a special interest in lashes and makeup!

On my days off in Queenstown I love to explore the many walking tracks it has to offer, kayaking in the summer, powder days in the winter and much more. I have the best groups of friends here so I love doing things with them too!
