Romanian Model Portfolio Shoot MakeUp Feature

Romanian Model Portfolio Shoot MakeUp | Hair

We started the shoot outside in a forested area above Camps Bay, and for this first look I kept her MakeUp light with a natural glow. I also pinned her hair up to show off her stunning neck and jawline.

Nora is originally from Germany, and has very fair European skin and blue eyes. Unfortunately she got sunburned (at her baby shower… ) a couple of days before her Maternity Shoot, so I had to work my MakeUp magic to hide the redness 😉

MakeUp Artist Life

My life as a MakeUp Artist

I quite often join my husband on these networking event evenings, where most of the other people are owners of large businesses and usually more corporate.

One of the first questions you ask someone at these events are of course: “So what do you do?” And when I answer with: “I am a MakeUp Artist”, I often find that my answer is met with a bit of an uncomfortable smile and somewhat condescending: “Oh, that’s nice”…

When Lauriaan booked me to do her MakeUp for her daughter’s first birthday party I kept it natural with evenly covered skin, earthy colours on her eyes and healthy glowing cheeks.

Miss A Boudoir Shoot MakeUp Feature

Miss A | Boudoir Shoot | MakeUp | Hair

For Miss A’s Boudoir Shoot, I did a soft smokey eye MakeUp look, with a dusty pink lipstick on her full and luscious lips. And then I did some messy, slept-in, bed head curls in her long gorgeous hair.

Nicolette Attree Family Shoot MakeUp

For Nicolette’s Family Shoot MakeUp she wanted to go more moody than natural so I did a chocolate brown smokey eye with hints of pink and plum…. I also shaped her gorgeous cheeks with a pink-ish blush and some highlighter.

Nicolette Attree Family Shoot MakeUp

I am so happy to have come across Mariaan at Pro Makeup Me. Not only is her work professional, she is kind and a very relate-able person.

I have never had airbrush make up done before and was very excited to try it. I always wondered about it and so glad I had it done. It felt light and looked way better than make up applied by sponge or brush. I was certainly pleasantly surprised. Mariaan certainly earned a regular client.

The make up also lasted really well after being in hot windy weather and running after a toddler all day. I didn’t feel like it was going to melt off my face or that it felt cakey at the end of the day. I’m sure if i had left it on for the next day it would still have looked perfect. I was actually quite sad to wash it off.

I would definitely recommend Mariaan at Pro Makeup Me. She knows her stuff and also listens to what her clients like or want. I will definitely use her again in future.

Mariaan is fantasties! Ek het baie donker kringe om my oë wat ek nie eers kan wegsteek deur makeup aan te plak nie! Maar Mariaan se magic steek dit heeltemal weg en dit hou heeldag/aand!!

Make-up lyk altyd mooi en natuurlik, nie dik en aangeplak nie. Mens voel soos ‘n super model na mens weg stap by haar met ‘n mooi gesiggie en hare.

Beste van als… haar spotgoedkoop pryse! Ek het al by baie mense navrae gedoen vir hare en make-up en meeste vra dubbel Mariaan se prys!

Ek sal haar 100% aanbeveel! Baie dankie Mariaan vir jou profesionele en vriendelike diens!!
