On April 14th I tied the knot with the man of my dreams!!!
We had an unforgettable celebration of love in the scenic wine lands situated in Paarl, Western Cape.
I decided that there will be no nerves & only excitement on the day & therefore I did my own makeup! I wanted to keep it natural, but made sure I contoured & highlighted my features beautifully.
I even got to do some of my bridesmaids & mum’s makeup with the help of my good friend (also bridesmaid) & makeup artist, Teneil Hardy.
Hair: Johanni Nel

Two weeks ago one of my dreams came true: working backstage at London Fashion Week!!!
I worked in a team with AOFM (Academy of Freelance makeup) on Jasper Garvida’s show and WOW – what an experience!!!
Head makeup artist: Annabel Callum
AOFM headed the makeup for 17 shows at London Fashion Week SS13
This was a fun shoot filled with block colours & beauty.

This gorgeous shoot was the result of 3 artists, blending their work to create one outcome: exquisite beauty.
Charo Galura (model) was born & raised in Italy with her roots tracing back to the Philippines. The first look is inspired by the warmth of the tribal Princess with the gold resembling wealth. The second look is tribal simplicity on a fierce face.
Thanks again to the master behind the Irish lens, Brian O’Sullivan.

It was a Friday morning when I found myself in the kitchen of the very talented photographer, Brian O’Sullivan.
Whilst drinking tea & having laughs about industry stories, I got to know this Irish lad with a love for photography. www.brianosullivanphotography.com
My inspiration for the shoot: Pearls – classical, rare, beauty.
What a great shoot on a rainy day in London!
The absolutely gorgeous Natalie Taylor couldn’t be more of a trooper giving Steve natural & warm poses whilst the icy wind & rain tried to crash our party!
