“How beautiful you are, now that you love me.”
WEDDING MAKEUP MY PHILOSOPHY
Having done makeup for brides over the last sixteen years, I know that the most important thing is that I have a clear understanding of what you would like to look like on your special day.
I just enhance your natural features so that when your Groom is saying “I do” he is thinking “how did I manage to marry her?”
I am professional, punctual and reliable. I ensure that my bride is totally at ease on her wedding day. My sense of humour comes in handy when calming those last minute nerves.
I do both Hair & Makeup together, so that during your trial 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. I am recommended 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
I have a Nationwide team of Hair & Makeup artists called AGENCY TALENT MULTIPLIED who are all fantastic, who I trust 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 I 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.
Accentuating someone’s features on their special day is an honour. I love meeting my 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 I love bringing out a sense of who they are and I’m 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.
ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
I travel to your venue whether you are needing a makeup artist in Durban, Ballito or the Midlands, in fact I travel just about anywhere, so that you are relaxed and calm. I am friendly and reliable and pride myself on never letting my brides down on such an important occasion. I ensure your hair and makeup is timeless, so that when you look at your photos in years to come you don’t look dated. I will accentuate your natural beauty and bring out your best features and perhaps downplay those you suggest. I can promise 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 me 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 I can assure you, you are in good hands.
My kit consists of only MAC makeup products as I have worked with these products my whole makeup career. Not only are they a professional makeup brand, they are long wearing and look natural. They do not reflect white back at the camera and the make up will enhance your natural beauty without overpowering it. My kit consists of over 3000 MAC makeup items to suit all skin tones. I am Sponsored by M.A.C, which means that M.A.C endorses me as a M.A.C Pro.
