Velbella Airbrush Makeup was founded in 2013 by Brisbane Makeup Artist, Lauren Veling. After working with many products, Lauren found she wasn’t 100% happy with the results, so she took matters into her own hands and launched the Airbrush Makeup Range online by Velbella Cosmetics.
In 2021, Lauren put away her Makeup Brushes for good, and Emma Moffat became the new managing director.
Emma had been using Velbella Airbrush Makeup professionally, on her clients at Glow Studio, for many years and shared the same passion for Airbrush Makeup as Lauren did. It was a colour-match made in heaven!
September, 2022 Amelia Rees officially came on board as Partner at Velbella and we've been loving every moment.
EMMA & AMELIA
We have been friends longer than Emma has been in the beauty industry. We have been through lifes ups and downs together and, through all of our experiences we have learnt the importance of kindness, connection and loving yourself.
Learning to love who you are has been a journey for both of us. Life can be tricky but when you have the right network of connections, it makes all the difference.
What we bring to the table is our dynamic. You'll hear Emma use Amelia's nickname 'Meals' or 'MealsHouse' (a term her twins use). Our banter is apparently very entertaining and we receive many compliments around the energy and tone we bring to the room.
You'll see over 16 years of friendship in action as we walk in the door on the morning of your wedding and set the tone for the day.
Our favorite compliment - you made getting ready for my wedding fun and memorable.
