HURRYUP AND WAIT by DisneyRollerGirl

This weekend over on Disney Roller Girl  I talk about the 'no make-up' look I did on model Bo for the collaborative film Petit Déjeuner and stills shoot Hurry Up and Wait  -  a beautiful 'all about mornings' concept.  Head over to the post to see my star products and tips on how to achieve this barely-there make-up look.

Just over a year ago I had the privilege of joining a most wonderful couple - Jo & Andrew -  on their destination wedding weekend at the exquisite Ballyfin House in Ireland, doing make-up for beautiful bride Jo.  It was a fairy tale experience from beginning to end....   Finally we are able to share the stunning images by photographer KT Merry after being featured in Martha Stewart Weddings this month.

WALLPAPER Magazine featured my work on the incredible PATTERNITY retrospective exhibition in London last weekend. Loved the visuals of this story.


I am very excited to announce that I am now a part of the London brainchild of my long time Cape Town colleague and friend Khandiz Joni - NOVEL BEINGS - the agency for conscious creatives. Khandiz has had a passion for sustainability and green living for many years and found that even though there are now many creatives in London working with this ethos in mind, that there was no 'one hub' for like minded clients to seek them out.  Now this hub exists and I am honoured to be a part of it.
