Tiffany joined us in 2013 in the role of General Manager as part of a restructuring to further strengthen and develop our customer service and business expansion.
She has an extensive background in management and learning & development as an airline trainer with more than 12 years experience with Qantas and Air New Zealand. She has been involved with us at events such as the New Zealand Beauty Expo and charity functions virtually since our establishment.
Her wide-ranging experience is a valuable addition to the skill set of the rest of the Wendy Hill Team, and enables her to add a new energy and vitality to the business.
Tiffany has a very "hands-on" role in the day-to-day running of Wendy Hill Cosmetics involving all aspects of the business from sales and marketing, to special events, industry training and strategic planning.
Wendy is one of New Zealand's most highly respected makeup artists and is well known for her training skills and - prior to the creation of Wendy Hill Cosmetics - for her work as a makeup designer with NBR New Zealand Opera and stage productions, and with commercial and private clients.
She has had extensive overseas training in London and New York, and has a comprehensive background in beauty and fashion, photographic, retail and theatre makeup. She is also an experienced makeup tutor, and has lectured extensively for drama and makeup schools, beauty schools and theatre productions New Zealand wide. She is also a recognised tutor in business skills for the beauty industry.
In her wide range of makeup work, Wendy identified the need for a makeup range designed specifically for the unique requirements of the New Zealand market.
"The natural light in New Zealand and the Pacific is quite different to the Northern Hemisphere, and our light is well favoured by the film and photographic industry," she says. "Wendy Hill Makeup is coloured to complement the golden light effects of the Southern Hemisphere. It is a quality, healthy product that will perform and last well in heat and humidity and under hot studio lighting, and will alway photograph beautifully. Because of its high quality it is kind to all skin types, and of course it is not tested on animals."
Wendy's unique service to the industry means she created a team that works with stockists to set their makeup budgets and advise them on the products specific to their client's needs.
Amitee is a very experienced makeup artist, and is one of Auckland's most sought-after makeup artists.
She has worked as a makeup artist, alongside many leading beauty professionals including award-winning hair stylist Mana Dave, fashion designers Liz Mitchell and Annah Stretton, and as a beauty consultant with Wendy Hill Cosmetics. She has lectured as a makeup tutor in beauty schools, Polytechs and makeup workshops throughout New Zealand.
She has done makeup and provided makeup advice for many leading entertainment and business personalities including Miss World New Zealand, Kahurangi Taylor, haute couture designer Liz Mitchell, Candy Lane, Michael Barrymore, international opera stars and leading politicians. She is also sought after as a makeup artist for weddings, fashion shoots, television and still advertising shots, and for stage and television productions.
Hayley trained at the NZ Institute of Electrolysis and Beauty Therapy, and is a successful beauty industry entrepreneur.
She owned her own clinic in Taupo for seven years, and now operates a very successful mobile beauty business in Taupo - Beauty on Location - serving the top end of the local market including the region's luxury spas which attract many well know international celebrities. Such clients frequent the world's top spa resorts, and usually request Beauty on Location's more luxuriuous treatments.
Beauty on Location is a very successful business model, based on Hayley's determination to provide her international clientele with a service that will at least match, and even better, their international spa experiences, and to provide the same level of service and treatments to her local clients.
She covers the central North Island/Bay off Plenty area for Wendy Hill Cosmetics.
Billie attended the 12-week Wendy Hill Professional Makeup Diploma course back in 2003 and from that time, her passion for makeup exploded.
Billie’s talent as a naturally-gifted makeup artist was evident back then, and she has worked in makeup ever since - for a good part of that time based in Europe - expanding and perfecting her skills. Her makeup experience includes London Fashion Week, fashion shoots for magazines, TV and feature films, and she has worked in association with may leading international personalities including Geri Halliwell.
Billie specialises in wedding makeup, and says that’s one of her favourite types of makeup to do. She loves the opportunity to naturally enhance her model’s beauty and confidence.
Billie says being the Wendy Hill online makeup artist enables her to help women all around the world to feel confident with their makeup application, and at the same time enables her to recommend the most amazing Wendy Hill’s products, found right here in New Zealand. She also has her own YouTube channel which means she can help women everywhere to pick up a makeup brush and feel comfortable and confident in their own makeup application.
“I’m so excited to be given this opportunity from Wendy Hill. Her products are second to none. It’s such an honour for me because Wendy Hill was my idol when I was just 16 and now I’m lucky enough to be representing her brand as her online makeup artist! A brand that does not test on animals – which is a huge deal for an animal lover like myself.”
