I have been doing professional makeup for about 10 years now.
My passion for makeup came from when I used to dance. As a little girl I used to watch with absolute admiration and amazement as I saw the older dancers apply their makeup and completely transform themselves. Baring in mind that stage makeup is VERY different from your everyday kind of makeup, I knew then that I would always be a makeup addict!
I remember the very first day when one of the older dancers showed me how to put on false eyelashes. I was so amazed at these “butterflies on my eyes” and how 14 year old me felt so grown up and glamorous- I knew then that makeup had me hook, line and sinker! I was lost and fascinated in the world of fantasy and illusion.
As I grew up, I slowly began to realise what I loved so much about makeup: the confidence it gives us and how it makes us feel. So I decided that while I had to the sensible thing and go to University, I was also going to learn and perfect the art of make-up.
And now this is what I do. I make people up. And I love it!
To me, makeup is not really about transforming people into something that they’re not, I mean yes there is a side to makeup that is all about transformation, but to me, makeup is more about enhancing what you already have been given, and showing you how to bring out your own unique features.
Although I am qualified in and create all sorts of makeup looks, my passion lies in bridal makeup. To every girl, your wedding day is the one day in your life where you just get to be a real life princess for a day. Being a bride is all about feeling and looking YOUR personal best on your big day. It is so important to find a makeup artist who investigates your preference and vision, while incorporating their knowledge and experience to create a look that is authentic to your natural beauty, but enhanced for your wedding day.
To be a part of your special day, and to help you look and feel like the most beautiful version of yourself – gives me total satisfaction. Your smile and happiness, is the BEST part of what I do.
Apart from bridal makeup I also specialise in the following:
