My makeup career started 5 years ago in 2009. My journey started at Kohl Make-Up Academy in Greenside. I found my passion and I knew I was on the right path when I was awarded student of the year – by volunteering on shoots and learning as much as possible about the different aspects of the industry and the drive to achieve top scores.

Once I graduated I took to the role as an assistant for any job available and managed to get into Queen Motlatle's make-up team for the Fifa World Cup opening and closing ceremonies. 
This opened a whole world of opportunities for me

Through the years I grow in the makeup industry with  big commercial shoots, movies, live events, bridal and my biggest passion....education. To mention a few national events I've taken part in : the National Teachers Award; Metro FM Awards; South Africa Sports Awards; ANC 100th birthday ceremony and African Youth Games opening ceremony in Botswana 2014.

“Layla Fourie”, directed by Pia Marias, produced by DV8 and pandora films, was my first feature film, assisting Marc Crisp with make-up and hair. I was also responsible for all special effects on the film. My second feature film was, XJ1, where I was key makeup artist.


Education has always been a great passion of mine.  From giving private home lessons and corporate workshops to makeup and design schools such as the North West School of Design. Giving people the right tools to use, whether it be on someone else or themselves.  I love make-up, this industry fuels the passion for my talent.  Looking forward to new and exciting contracts and growing with every experience.
