This is where the term makeup artist comes into play. All faces, all complexions all skin tones, all ages, to enhance and soften features, to make you look the best you can be. All require individual attention when applying makeup.
I work in a very focused way and making women feel beautiful and bringing out their natural beauty is what I love doing. I listen to what look you want and look at all aspects of your personality and facial features. Through your consultation it is my ambition to deliver you a result that far exceeds your expectation.
I have an extensive makeup kit which enables me to work on a large diversity of complexions and skin tone. I use only high end cosmetics specialty professional makeup artist products.
I also specialise in airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup delivers a natural, flawless, long lasting finish perfect for bridal parties or any occasion where makeup needs to last and look perfect all day and into the night. It also wears very well in hot, humid conditions. Additional charge for airbrushing.
If you are a bride-to-be it is essential your have a trial make-up. This trial usually takes longer and is just as important as your wedding day. In this consultation I listen carefully to what you want and discuss the different options. I take into consideration your overall look, what the weather will probably be like, how long your makeup needs to last, where you are getting married and where you are having your photographs taken as lighting plays a big part on your wedding day. A trial makeup is also very important so you can learn what to do and what not to do with your skin leading up to your wedding day. Once you decide on the look you love I will do a face chart and take a photo so I can duplicate the same look on the day.
