For as long as I could remember I’ve wanted to be a make up artist and I always knew it was just a matter of time…
I’m a qualified pro makeup, hair & spray tan artist and hold my certification from Mieke Petit (Amsterdam), Brushstrokes (Cape Town) & Scar Hair (Cape Town). I also have my own skincare line called Allure Skincare which is an organic, handmade skincare brand.
The industry has taught me an immense amount of creativity and how to deal with the pressures of working on projects in every genre.
Having worked at a modeling agency as a model scout and at a creative management agency as a makeup and hair artist including the opportunity of a great training ground as a MAC artist and studying hair at SCAR; it has all provided me with the ideal background in dealing with models, photographers, agencies, production companies and many celebrities to wet my appetite and leaving me wanting more! I also have an agency called GLAM MANIACS where other artists work under my name to help when there is too much work for me to handle.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching pro artist training and watching them flourish under my watchful eye. It leaves me with a feeling of giving back and paying my skills forward. It’s incredibly rewarding! I call my private tutoring school GLAM MANIACS UNIVERSITY. I also do private individual tutor lessons if you just want to learn to do your own makeup and hair.
I love the creativity that comes with transforming someone with fashion or the feeling when grooming someone, making them feel beautiful/sexy and they become luminous.
Now that I have had the pleasure of being made up and looking and feeling gorgeous on my very own wedding day and having gone through the pre wedding day madness, I can truly say that I know what all my brides go through and I think it’s made me a better artist when it comes to understanding your needs leading up to your wedding day and I’m glad to be able to know how you feel about your special day. It leaves me nostalgic for doing mine all over again.
I’m very lucky to be able to do international and domestic travel with my work and being able to have the understanding of how the pressures of the environment plays with my product performance and how this affects my hair and makeup skills.
I LOVE MY “JOB”!
