WEDDING MAKEUP OUR PHILOSOPHY

Having done makeup for brides over the last sixteen years,  we know that the most important thing is that we have a clear understanding of what you would like to look like on your special day.
We enhance your natural features so that when your Groom is saying “I do” he is thinking “how did I manage to marry her?”

Our promise to you is that we are professional, punctual and reliable.  We ensure that you, our bride, are totally at ease on your wedding day.  Our calm and easy going natures come in handy when calming those last minute nerves.  We fit in well with your girls and ensure that the “getting ready” part of the wedding morning will be some of your most memorable.

We do both Hair & Makeup together, so that for your trial preview you make one appointment, go to one place, can see the whole look as one and deal with one person.

On the day you pay one travel fee.

We are recommended as preferred suppliers of Hair and Makeup services, by the following venues:  Camp Orchards, Netherwood, The Cairn of Old Kilgobbin, Thorner Country Cottages, The Venue Fontana,  The Gallery at Far Side Farm, Canelands, Granny Mouse, Tala, The Du Boirs, Bellwood, Camelot and Crystal Barn.

Our Nationwide team of Hair & Makeup artists are all fantastic,  I trust them implicitly to deliver the same level of service I do.  This is a great bonus as it means we get to assist you on bigger weddings – again dealing with one person.

You spend a fair amount on your professional photos so we ensure that when you look at them in the excitement after the wedding and in years to come you will still be enthralled at the person you were on that day.

YOUR TRIAL

Accentuating someone’s features on their special day is an honour.  We love meeting our brides at their bridal hair and makeup trial and working with them to come up with a hair and makeup look that they are happy with.  Each bride is different and we love bringing out a sense of who they are.  We are merely there to enhance and accentuate the beauty already there.  The bridal hair and makeup trial is done at the Studio based in Kloof near Hillcrest Durban, which has both natural lighting from skylights to mimic the natural light on the wedding day as well as studio lighting for photographic.

Bridal Makeup Trial

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

We travel to your venue whether you are needing a makeup artist in Durban, Ballito or the Midlands.  We travel just about anywhere, so that you are relaxed and calm.  We am friendly and reliable and pride ourselves on never letting my brides down on such an important occasion.  We ensure your hair and makeup is timeless, so that when you look at your photos in years to come you don’t look dated.  We will accentuate your natural beauty and bring out your best features and perhaps downplay those you suggest.  Our promise is that your makeup will not only look immaculate and amazing, but that it will last the whole wedding through.

Working alongside the best photographers in the industry has taught us subtle ways of using makeup to ensure you look fabulous not only in person, but also in your photos.

With over 16 years experience and countless brides and models we can assure you, you are in good hands.
