A word from makeup lecturer Michal Samovich:
“ 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. “
Michal is one of the leading makeup artists in SA, she has worked on big commercial shoots, movies, live events, bridal, education and television, and have been fortunate to work with some of the most renowned names in the industry.
Michal has always found joy in educating others and giving people the right tools to use, whether it is giving private make-up lessons to clients, make-up workshops for corporate clients or lecturing at make-up schools and institutions. Michal definitely regards Make-up as her calling.
Fashion makeup will equipt you with a skill to transform a bride or a matric farewell girl into their best self. You're not creating an illusion, you're only highlighting a picture that was already there.
