Natural Compatibles has a long and proud history of delivering timeless make-up enhancement solutions to women.  Established in Cairns, Queensland over twenty five years ago Natural Compatibles is now based in Melbourne and managed by proprietor Pamela Andrews. Natural Compatibles continues to produce an innovative and versatile range of make-up suitable for every woman, especially mature women and for all occasions.

Our make-up philosophy remains simplistic, yet stylish. It is essentially based on the principles of art, so our colours don’t change through the seasons, however we do like to sprinkle a little fashion along the way…

Looking your best is achieved by using specific colours selection and our proprietary technique called Feature Focussing™, which highlights and defines the two main communicating features of the face – eyes and lips. This will also diminish the need to cover or correct those annoying flaws, leading to ever increased confidence and self esteem.

Our innovative, yet simple, ‘no guess work’ formula for colour selection and our step-by-step application process, Feature Focussing™ continues to stand the test of time, creating symmetry and balance to the face.  Colours which enhance the face should harmonise with skin tones, uplifting a look, rather than draining them

Pamela’s vision is to continue to educate women of all ages with regards to their all important make-up needs. Education is the key to ending the struggle with makeup, along with correct colour application. Our new logo “Real Makeup for Real Women” best describes who we are. Natural Compatibles is there for the everyday woman, we understand her varied roles. We also understand that she is extremely busy, but still likes to look attractive.

To achieve the maximum benefit from our product range we suggest you make a booking for a fun and informative makeup tuition session. Our highly trained and experienced Natural Compatibles make-up technician’s are on hand for your convenience at specially selected salons in all states throughout Australia.

YOU wear the Makeup

the Makeup doesn’t wear YOU!

by Pamela Andrews


It was in 1991 in Cairns, Australia, after researching more than 7,000 Australian Women that Nouk Tayler-Vieira, an award winning make-up artist, pioneered the concept of Feature Focussing™ . Nouk was the author of “Exploding the Make-up Myth” which sold thousands of copies. Nouk created the Natural Compatibles range because of the need for colours that were based on art not fashion.

Denise Richardson bought the company shortly after it launched and her love and passion for Natural Compatibles lasted approximately 18 years, servicing the beauty industry. She was always well respected and added new and exciting products to the range during this time.

On the 1st of February 2012, Denise retired from Natural Compatibles selling the business to current owner Pamela Andrews. Back in 1994 Pamela was the first Victorian to train as a NC Make-up Technician. Pamela loves to educate women about the Natural Compatibles make-up concept, she loves witnessing the wonderful transformations of her clients. Natural Compatibles continues to deliver timeless make-up enhancement solutions to thousands of women, arming them with the knowledge and products to look and feel gorgeous every day. Under Pamela’s stewardship, Natural Compatibles will continue to support the beauty industry in Australia and will remain a proudly Australian owned and operated company.


The Natural Compatibles range has evolved into a selection of products and colours, leading the way in Feature Focus make-up application, servicing salons all over Australia.
