Where we began

How it all began

Kia Orana and welcome to KONIMAQ.  My name is Konini and I am a professional qualified Makeup Artist specialising in mobile beauty makeup services.  I'm from the beautiful tropical Cook Islands where I was born, married, had kids all before migrating to New Zealand.
After becoming qualified in 2015, I continued makeup artistry as a part-time freelancing outside my 9 - 5 job.   As my passion for flawless skin and makeup grew, during September 2017, I made the courageous decision to quit my 9 - 5 to pursue my passion in the beauty industry.  I'm currently based in Auckland, New Zealand, however, have had the opportunity to take my business internationally to the Cook Islands and Australia. To date, I have serviced hundreds of clients for various occasions such as weddings, photo shoots, school balls, birthdays, ensuring that each client looks and feels more gorgeous than ever.

The Journey

Throughout this time, I noticed a common theme with the majority of my clients.  Number 1: they wanted to look like Kim K, and Number 2: a skin regime was non-existent, and the importance of it was at the bottom of their priority list.  Basically, the link between flawless makeup and amazing skin was missing.  I would spend as long as 30 minutes to have a clients skin ready and prepped before starting any makeup application to achieve that flawless result.  This is when I made it my mission to share my proactive approach to beautiful makeup.

Whats New!
This year (2018) I am proud to announce that I have launched my very own makeup and skincare products inspired by my Pacific roots.  My products feel luxurious on the touch and look and smell delicious enough to eat. KONIMAQ products will quicken your makeup regime and rejuvenate your skin to achieve a radiant flawless tropical glow.
I know that you will love what KONIMAQ has to offer, and I can't wait to serve all your beauty makeup needs.
