I am endlessly fascinated by how the artful application of makeup can transform both the outer and inner self.
My interest in this creative process of transformation with makeup started at a very young age. My mother was a drama lecturer , so I spent a lot of time around the theatre and backstage. I also did ballet for years, which really sparked my love for performance and art through a living canvas.
Through the years, I've always had a keen interest in specifically the power of makeup.
Inevitably, I did amateur makeup applications on friends and discovered I have a talent for it. A friend eventually suggested I develop this talent and passion by getting professional training in this art form that I love so much.
I turned it into my career, and 20 years later, I still love what I do.
I have since helped brides achieve their ultimate radiant look, did fun creative shoots with models for their portfolios, lectured makeup artistry students, worked for two of the most well-known makeup brands in SA and abroad (MAC and PMU) and also taught women the tricks of the trade to look their absolute best.
I am highly skilled and I only use makeup from professional product ranges.
High quality professional products are specifically designed for photographic work. Coupled with professional techniques and expertise, it enables me to create the perfect look for every occasion.
I have done many beautiful bridal looks over the years and I thoroughly enjoy being a part of someone’s special day.
I strongly believe that a bride should not only look flawless on camera, but also feel confident, radiant and like her most beautiful self in person on the day. Whether it’s a natural look, or a more glamorous one, I pride myself on creating the perfect look to suit your individual needs.
I do makeup applications for the bride and bridal party myself (up to 8 persons total).
Matric dance, birthday parties, anniversaries…whatever your special event, I will create the perfect look to suit the occasion.
Fashion, photographic and editorial makeup still remains my favourite type of makeup artistry to do.
I love the creativity that goes into producing the perfect image to tell a story.
I love creating perfectly groomed eyebrows and believe myself to be an expert at it.
I offer tweezing and tinting to achieve the best eyebrow shape to suit your individual features.
