Renate and Natalie Becker

My name is Renate Elizabeth Mentoor, and I am a professional make-up artist from Cape Town, South Africa

My love for makeup began at an early age while growing up in the beautiful Cape Town. Watching beauty pageants and beauty magazines I was so fascinated how make-up cannot just make you feel beautiful but enhance the features you love the most.

I studied at the International Academy of Health and Beauty in Greenpoint, Cape Town in 2003. I did a Beauty Therapy course and worked as a Beauty Therapist at a beauty salon. As a beauty therapist I found my true passion for make-up and I enjoyed it more than my other beauty treatments I did at the salon.

I specialize in Fashion, Runway, bridal, events / occasions, beauty, creative and lifestyle to name a few. I also do hairstyling upon request. I only use makeup from professional product ranges.

It is my main objective and passion to make each and every person who sits in my chair feel like they are their most beautiful and confident self from inside out. Have a look at my portfolio and contact me for quotes on my services.
