FEEDBACK - I love my job!

"Hello, I just want to thank you so much for doing my hair & make-up on my wedding! you made me feel beautiful!! :)"  Jezame Wijnberg

"Thank you dear Donna for making me feel like a princess, you really are amazingly talented!! :) love- Janita xxx Janita Britz

".......Thank you so much for the excellent job that you did. I don't think I've ever received so many compliments in my entire life, and I know having great hair and make-up definitely played a role. And it held the entire evening - which considering all the wind, dancing and everything else is - is quite impressive!! ..."  Catherine Crawford

"Hi Donna - Thanks for seeing me today and doing such an amazing job:) " Arita Bagwandin *eds note- this is not a professional pic was taken with an ipad - thanks)

"Hi Donna! 
 Thank you so much for everything, my hair and make up was absolutely stunning, you really are excellent at what you do. Thanks for being so professional too.'
P.S I think you can expect to get quite a few matric dance requests, so many people have asked me for your number for their matric dances already!"  Daniella

Melanie and Malcolm

...one of my favourite wedding photographers Christelle Rall took these images of my beautiful bride Melanie! We did a side "do" on Mel. This gives the illusion of thicker hair as all the hair is on one side. It also gives one the best of both worlds....
You have beautiful soft full luscious locks on the one shoulder and then an open neckline on the other side. Perfect to show off pretty shoulders or dress details! Oh - and this wedding was also featured on one of the UK's top wedding blogs! SEE link below!

Catherine Crawford - Pinelands

It was such a lovely day working with Catherine and her lovely bridesmaids!
I used my favourite MAC products to create a beautiful soft smoky eye! Just some of these favourites include a bit of "Bountiful brown" eye pencil ( its light brown and slightly shimmery) right under the eye - aswell as "Bronze" and "Expensive pink" eye shadows on the lid! Hair was soft and tousled and showed off her face beautifully!

Jezamae - gorgeous 2014 bride

I had the pleasure of posting Jezamaes trial pic up here recently...here are the professional photos. I did both hair and makeup on this one. Stunning girl and awesome person to spend the day working with......

Lorna Dunk - Simonstown

I enjoyed working on Lorna! I popped a small 'donut'  into her hair to give it a bit more volume .....
I get these now from Either Clicks or Dischem ....(very exciting as these weren't so readily available before!) and then I worked the little side bun around it! What do you think? Loved her elegant dress too ...o la la.....

PS. Don't you think her hubby looks like Antonio Banderos?

Natalia at Nooitgedaght - with photography by Kathryn Van Eck

Natalia rocked that tiara! Nooitgedaght is also possibly one of my favorite venues... Big trees and lots of squirrels and a lovely relaxed vibe.... and they really turn the reception hall into a magical feast for the eyes complete with fairy lights and loads of ambience..... Love it!

Beautiful Jennifer at Webersburg!

If I could sum up Jens "look" i would have to say LASHES! 

Jen had the individual lash extensions applied by a pro and then I ADDED to these with my own individual false lashes!

Beautiful girl and a beautiful face to work on! Chuffed with these pics!

PS!  I did not do Jens hair the lovely and talented Jeanette Genis did! Looked great!
