“Photographer, Geoff Francis, introduced me to Vivianne with rave reviews and I have not been disappointed. Her make-up and hair techniques are so seamless. I like a very clean look for my shoots and Vivianne takes this to a new level, defining the key points of the model, adding to cheek bones, brows and lashes, just beautiful. It is not only Vivianne’s skills but also her professionalism that impresses me. The small touches that she adds to the service. I have worked with Vivianne on 3 separate shoots so far and I am excited about working with her again soon, highly recommended.”

Dear Vivianne,

Just a quick note to thank you very much for your energy and progesional help during our band shoot. You made my life (dealing with the “rock-starts”) so much easier, and the band as well as the two models were raving about your work after the shoot. I hope you had fun during our production as well. The results definitely look stunning, thanks also to your hair & makeup. I am looking forwards to working with you soon!

Kind Regards, Stephan Bollinger



Hi Viv,

finally back from the honeymoon! It was a fantastic trip! The best experience I’ve had! :) just thought you could add the following on your blog as my feedback for your services!

Thank you Vivianne for your amazing work on my wedding day. Every hairstyle you did on me was perfect. The makeup was gorgeous and you were my savior for the bridesmaids. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. For every penny spent, you went above and beyond. I only wish I could have left your makeup on me permanently but then of course I know you would’ve advised me against blocking my pores ;)

For anyone who is looking for the PERFECT hair and makeup on their special day, whether it be for a wedding or formal, Vivianne is definitely your go to person. She’s very knowledgeable in what she does; she knows what colours and style suit you; and she’s thorough from beginning to end. Her services are reliable and professional. As a person, Vivianne is warm, easy going and friendly. She gives 110% to her clients and for these many reasons, I will be recommending Vivianne to all my friends, strangers, and any person in need of awesome hair and makeup :)

I originally met Vivianne in 2010 when I was seeking help with skin pigmentation issues to my face.  I went to a one-on-one makeup application workshop at Vivianne’s studio where she taught me how to conceal the pigmentation, surprisingly using less makeup than I had previously.

Then, 18 months later I needed a makeup artist for my wedding.  Due to logistics, I consulted a local makeup artist, but they did not understand skin tone and were unable to achieve a natural look.  Fortunately, Vivianne was able to come to my home on the Gold Coast to do my makeup and my sister’s (bridesmaid).

Vivianne asks for a picture of the look you’d like to achieve and a photo with your makeup applied in the usual way.  From this, she can create the look you want but in the way you like to wear it.  So often when getting makeup done, once the makeup artist leaves, you change it to the way you like it.  Vivianne doesn’t do this, she creates a result that still looks like you, only a flawless version.

My sister doesn’t wear makeup at all as she suffers from eczema and makeup makes her dry skin worse.  Vivianne took the time to go through this with her, ask questions, try different products and make her feel comfortable in the makeup, ensuring it suited her skin type.  Luckily, she had her makeup done first on the day, because she spent the next hour in front of the mirror admiring her new beauty!

My wedding photos were beautiful and even on the highest resolution, my skin looked flawless and no pigmentation could be seen.  The look Vivianne created was elegant and natural at the same time.  Vivianne is an exceptional makeup artist.  Whether you need help with applying your current makeup, finding new makeup techniques or if you have an event that you want to look perfect, Vivianne will make you look beautiful. 

Thank you, Vivianne

I just wanted to say thank you very much for doing such a wonderful job with my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I have never met such an experienced, professional and talented hair and makeup artist. All of my friends and family couldn’t stop commenting on what a fabulous job you had done. As a person who does not usually wear makeup, I felt very comfortable with the makeup application. Thank you again for making my day just that touch more special.

Hello Vivianne, I would like to thank you so much for doing my makeup and hair, you did a magnificent job, I was very pleased and I got many compliments during the night and my makeup lasted all through the night even until the end of my after party. Thank you very much.

Vivianne was a saviour on my wedding day! I had a team of six hair and makeup stylists and none of them had the skills to do our hair and make up the way we asked. except Vivianne.. After 2 attempts at other stylists doing my hair unsuccessfully my mum took charge and told everyone else to leave but Vivianne and one other makeup artist. Although very rushed for time she fixed everyone’s hair and makeup and avoided disaster! I had a 4 bridesmaids myself and my mum to get done and she went above and beyond to make sure we all looked and felt fabulous! I can recommend Vivianne with out any hesitation whatsoever as I am indebted to her from avoiding major disaster on my special day.

“On behalf of myself and my bridesmaids I would like to say a big thank you for doing such a fantastic job on our hair and makeup for my wedding. From the beginning I felt comfortable with you and confident in your ability to make me look and feel like a princess on my wedding day. I looked as beautiful as I dreamed I would, thanks to your expertise. I received many compliments on my classic look and did not hesitate recommending you to those who asked. Once again thank you for your professionalism and going way beyond your call of duty.” “ I would like to send my greatest thanks to the team at Simply Elegant for your fabulous make up art and hair styling for myself and my two bridesmaids. From the initial phone call all the way up to the wedding the service was absolutely wonderful. You all made us laugh and feel so comfortable from the whole time that you were there. Our hair and make up looked completely flawless and stayed that way from 9am until all hours of the night. All of the colours chosen were perfect and we all felt so comfortable and confident with ourselves. Everyone commented on how lovely we all looked and how our make up looked so elegant and natural!!! Thanks again and we will definitely be recommending you to all of our friends and family. Thanks”

Vivianne is very organised and professional. There were 5 of us bridesmaids and the bride, and she made sure she arrived on time (5am!) to make sure she had enough time to do everyone’s hair and make up. Very rare to find a great makeup artist in Brisbane who was willing to organise their time around your schedule and also stay around the whole day if needed for touchups or even change of makeup and hair for the evening. Very gentle and knows what she’s talking about. Will definitely be using her for my big day!

Amy Nguyen

Vivianne is great. My wedding was in the middle of Brisbane’s winter and I needed mine(and 4 bridesmaids) hairstyled by 8am and she did an awesome job.

I chose Simply Elegant Beauty to be my hair and make up artist on my wedding day and I was very impressed with the work! Vivianne Tran was a lovely and professional hair and make up artist who knew what she was doing and did not stress over doing hair and make up for myself plus 5 bridesmaids. I’m glad I chose Vivianne Tran from Simply Elegant Beauty!

Linda Lee


Vivianne’s make up artistry is always perfect and flattering on all the women she’s worked with in Brisbane. Her superb hair styling techniques also make it convenient for the bride to have both hair and makeup done at once. Her work is beautifully captured in photography – reflecting her dedication to making every woman looking her best. Highly recommended artist!!
