I did this shoot with Minette for advertising and a few photos for herself. If you are looking for a wedding makeup artist, you have found her! I was very pleased with my wedding makeup she did for me :) And of course she also does makeup for any other occasion. Her other services includes gel nails and eyelash extensions.

"I love what I do! Make-up is my passion and being part of your most special day is such a privilege to me. 

I started my journey into the wonderful world of make-up in 1998.  At that stage it was a hobby, but I loved it so much, that in 2005 I decided to make my hobby a career.  I’ve never looked back. 

Each bride is special to me and over the years I have formed some wonderful bonds with some very special people." - Minette

Any tips for brides?

My top tip is beautiful skin.  In the time leading up to the wedding, take special care of your skin, stay out of the sun and drink lots of water.  Now is not the time to experiment with different products,  stick to your tried and tested products. Get enough rest the night before the wedding, so that you can wake up looking and feeling fresh.  Use a primer underneath your foundation to smooth out any fine lines and to create a matt base for your foundation.  Make sure that your foundation is the right colour for your skintone!  If you are doing your own make-up for your wedding, practice, practice and practice!  You want your make-up to look perfect and last all day & night.  Consider using a few lashes in the corners of the eye to open your eyes and give some extra volume to the lashes.  And lastly, relax, enjoy and have FUN!
