I have had the pleasure of calling Carly my friend since we were kids. When Lynne & I toyed with the idea of creating a mega Mother’s Day competition, Carly was one of the first people I knew we would want to have involved. Naturally, her talent and flair for makeup & hair were important, but I personally know she is a great mum, business owner and a downright good ethical person. 

Carly works on the ethos that less is more and more with less. She chooses cruelty-free and vegan products as she believes no animal should suffer for the sake of beauty. If you want to keep up with her latest work, follow her on Instagram 

Carly offers Makeup Artistry and Hair Styling for weddings, formals, group bookings and commercial work. She is Based in Redcliffe and available for travel to all suburbs, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and hinterlands, Northern NSW, Interstate and International travel.

Take 5 with Carly Stone

Redcliffe born or Redcliffe-lured?

Redcliffe born. I have moved away but I always move back; Redcliffe is beautiful, I love the ocean and it’s a great lifestyle.

What does your business/job involve?

I’ll be doing makeup and hairstyling for a special occasion one day, personal branding headshots the next and shooting for a magazine or lifestyle shoot the day after that. My job varies day to day and so does the location, it’s part of the appeal. I’m also designing my workshops for teaching everyday women how to create beautiful makeup to help them radiate and feel confident starting later in the year, I’m really excited to do that.

Suburb you live in and why you love it?

I live in Kippa-Ring, we look out to the Bribie Island and have beautiful neighbours and a big backyard.

How do you unwind?

I like to read Harper’s Bazaar with a coffee sitting on my front deck and enjoy the view or head to a local cafe to catch up on some admin work (Strangely I find that relaxing and I’m more effective when I’m out of the house) or create mood boards for upcoming shoots.

Best coffee haunt in town / best watering hole in town?

Wow, that’s a tough question, there are so many great places in Redcliffe. I’ll often head to Preece’s if I’m meeting friends for coffee or Butcher Baker Coffeemaker at Woody Point. I enjoy a quiet vodka, lime and soda at home but if I’m heading out, Preece’s is great for a drink too or the Belvedere Hotel to catch the sunsetting over the water.

It sounds cliche, but I really can’t thank Carly enough for the incredible job she did on my bridesmaids’ and my makeup on our wedding day. She was extraordinarily organised and efficient, while being a fantasticly calming, relaxing presence during preparations on the day of the wedding. All of my bridesmaids commented on how much they loved their make up, and how down to earth and friendly Carly was, and how fun it was to have her there helping us get ready. Thank you Carly!:) – Jahnie
