Makeup tips to remember on YOUR BIG DAY!

1. Make sure you have healthy, glowing and radiant skin by going for regular facials, and investing in some good skin care products about 6 months before your big day!

2. Pluck/thread or wax your brows a few days before the big day!

3. Ensure that you are not sensitive to the makeup and that you will not have any allergies towards certain products by having a trial a month before.

4. Make sure your makeup artist uses professional products. These have the highest colour payoff and photograph the best. Your photos will last a life time and you deserve to look your best!

5. Enjoy the BIG DAY! This is the most important day of your life so don’t forget to have fun and enjoy the experience! And don’t fret the small stuff! Once the big day arrives there is nothing much more you can do after all the months of planning, so ‘kick your shoes off’  as it where, and enjoy the experience! And don’t forget to eat some of your yummy food! You chose it after all!

Cosmo Denim shoot.....

I am privileged to have Donna Claire as one of my regular clients! We shot this at the old Madame Zingara in Town. The building is pretty run down and derelict but provided  great backdrops and a moody feel for all these pics! I did makeup only with Jeanette Genis on hair. The girl above- namely Danielle Van Grondelle,  is a Dutch international plus size model and travels across the globe.


Awesome photo opportunities don't you think?

chit chat :)

Jeanette Genis in action. A total pro

Intense concentration..liquid liner has to be PERFECT!

Recommendation- Michelle Kanter 7th April bride

Aaaah once again this is what makes my job totally worthwhile...Michelle has got to be one of the nicest and cutest people I have EVER met...what a pleasure being part of her BIG day... x

" How will I ever be able to thank you for making me look & feel like a princess on our wedding day! I was sooooooo pleased with my hair & makeup & received compliments the whole day! PJ couldn’t stop staring at me & telling me how beautiful I looked, thank you so much!

Although it rained outside the whole day myself, Chantelle & Samantha had so much fun with you & thank you for keeping me relaxed & making sure that my hair & makeup was “rain proof”. Everyone keeps on saying that I was the most relaxed bride they have ever seen, hehehehe!!! I feel so honoured that you did my hair & makeup on my special day & you feel like a old friend!

I will definitely recommend you to each & every future bride out there, the fact that you are such a perfectionist in your work is exactly what every bride wants on her big day!

Emma McManus- wed April 4th at Zevenwacht wine farm

Recommendation from Emma McManus

Thanks so much for doing my make up and the make up for my sisters- I was so pleased with it so if you ever need a reference or anything please let me know!
One last thing I wanted to ask is if by any chance you remembered the make up you used on me as would like to try to buy it as I loved the colours? I know you probably can’t remember the exact ones but if you could give me advice re the kind of colours I need to buy from MAC that would be great!
Thanks Again
