Gordana Willesee, make-up artist for Hollywood’s A-list when they are in Australia, has launched her first Sydney studio specialising in cosmetic tattooing and eyebrow microblading, Dr Freckle & Mr Hide.
Gordana’s glamourous persona and wicked sense of humour, which got her down to the final short-list for THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF SYDNEY, has made her the “go-to” makeup artist and groomer for some of the biggest names in Hollywood when they’re in town.
Clients include Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, Anna Faris, Famke Janssen as well as Australian leading ladies Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Teresa Palmer, Rachael Taylor & Rachel Griffiths. Male clients include Tom Hiddleston, Vince Vaughan, Orlando Bloom, Mel Gibson, Russell Crowe, Ashton Kutcher and Hugh Grant.
Gordana has now expanded her empire and brings her incomparable mastery to the cosmetic tattoo industry, with her bespoke Sydney studio, Dr Freckle & Mr Hide, specialising in the hugely popular practice of eyebrow microblading.
Having studied cosmetic tattooing in both the US and Australia, Gordana has honed her skills regularly attending masterclasses and training overseas with the very best specialists in the Industry.
In a short period of time, Gordana has garnered a high-profile list of clients who rave about the transformation and beautifully natural looking eyebrows she creates and in 2017 is set to become one of the leading specialists in her field in Australia.
Shelly Horton from Channel Nine said “I decided to go to Gordana from Dr Freckle & Mr Hide. I trust her implicitly as I’ve known her since she was the top makeup artist at Channel Nine. Heavily inked herself, I knew she’d be up to date on the latest techniques. After only the first treatment I was already thrilled with the results.”
PJ Madam from Channel 7 said “I was initially so nervous about getting my eyes tattooed, but there is a reason why Gordana is the BEST in the business. Firstly, she’s a perfectionist so you always get an amazingly natural look with complete confidence. And secondly, her work ethic is second to none. A convert for life. Thank you, Gordana!”
Gordana comments “I’ve always been deeply passionate about evolving in my industry. Having accomplished so much with basic make up, I decided to master permanent makeup. I am very aware of the diligence needed to looking natural! My favourite phrase is when people say “you can’t tell it’s tattooed”. My clients all agree, it’s the ‘no down-time brow lift’!
Gordana also specialises in cosmetic tattooing for women who suffer from various medical conditions including alopecia and cancer. For cancer survivors who have undergone chemotherapy and lost eyebrows, Gordana can completely rebuild the appearance of their brows. For breast cancer sufferers who have undergone a mastectomy and no longer have areola, Gordana through special advanced techniques in cosmetic tattooing, can “create” a three-dimensional new natural looking nipple and areola. These simple procedures can help restore both the appearance and crucially, the self-esteem of both women and men who have undergone cancer treatment and surgery.
Gordana’s studio, Dr Freckle and Mr Hide is based at The Lip Lab, 308 Oxford Street, Paddington, as well as consulting from Dr. Annop Rastogi’s rooms, 4-10 Bay St, Double Bay & Camden Skin Clinic and Spa, 68 John St, Camden.
