We the Kuier team went to Hillcrest Winery Estate in Durbanville to have our shoot. Our model Joy-Nita, curve model from Ice Genetics and Dentist as profession was a natural in front of the camera. Her hair kept curly and full and makeup I kept it warm and natural look and warmed up the lips more as we moved on to different outfits.
I know Chelsea from a previous shoot we did and she loved her makeup and asked me to do her makeup for her wedding as well.
The wedding took place at the beautiful Nelson's Creek Estate in Paarl. The Via Tv crew was there to capture Chelsea's special day as well as the behind the scenes moments.
In January we the fashion team at Kuier usually have our back to work fashion shoot. Ways on how to look trendy but still presentable. Makeup and hair would be natural yet emphasizing on the good features and by just adding more color after work when having dinner with friends or family. Our model for the day was the beautiful Shernell Meyer.
This was a really fun and crazy shoot and at the same time put you in a Christmas mood. The Bravo Tv crew was there to capture the behind the scene moments of the Suidooster cast as well as us the Kuier magazine team.
Had a great time meeting and working with the Suidooster actors and actresses Denise Newman, Portia Joel, Jill Levenberg, Desire Manthey Gardner, Marco Spaumer, Maurice Paige and Irsaad Ally.
I have always been a big fan of horror movies and when Halloween comes it is a great time to play with makeup. I decided to do a 'The Nun' makeup inspired look and make it as scary as possible of course. Products used are Kryolan Dermacolor, Catrice Cosmetics smokey eye set 030 and brushes from Real Techniques.
Marc Lottering, stand-up comedian from Cape Town. In 2017 he staged a musical called "Aunty Merle the Musical". Other well known characters he plays on stage are Smiley, Galata, Pastor Brandon, Coleen and Travis. Once again, always a pleasure working with Marc Lottering and always fun.
It was once again a huge privilege to work with actress June van Merch. Always a good laugh when working with June and to listen to all her wonderful and inspiring stories and memories.
Had the opportunity to work with social media personality Rasheeqah Karriem. We did a Royal inspired (Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth) fashion shoot for Kuier magazine fashion spread.
The makeup was kept minimal with soft styles curls, nothing over the top to represent Royalty.
I am part of the Catrice Cosmetics Makeup Artists Programme and receive products to test and review. We also get a makeup look to create along products that we receive. Catrice Cosmetics are one of the drugstore makeup brands that I do love as value for money at the same time. I love their lip glosses , lipsticks as well as eye shadows (that I use for highlighters too).
