In 2010, I qualified as a makeup artist after I finished my studies at Head to Toe Academy. And since then I have made it my mission to share my love for beauty with aspiring makeup artists by offering accredited courses and practical workshops at Cecilia Fourie Academy. You might occasionally see my work featured in a few magazines too! I’ve also had the absolute pleasure to meet some amazing people, work on some incredible projects, including on set at Top Billing, Expresso and SABC 3.
As a Professional Makeup Artist & Hairstylist my aim is to showcase my clients’ inner magnificence through the careful application of make up ensuring she looks as amazing as she feels for her special occasion! I strongly believe each and every person should look natural, yet radiantly beautiful, this is accomplished by enhancing each client’s natural features. Makeup & Hairstyling in my eyes are not tools to change who they are, it’s techniques that is meant to magnify the beauty within that already exists.
From the moment I enquired about hair and make up for my wedding Cecilia was fantastic. She did my hair and make up exactly how I wanted it and her customer service was world class. She went out her way and responded to all my emails promptly that’s what a bride wants when things can get quite stressful leading up to the big day. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely have her do my hair and make up again. Thank you for being outstanding. – Bride: Kelly
Our tips: Book your hair and make up artist
Meet the top bridal hair and make up artists in Gautent.
For most brides-to-be this is a very personal decision – to choose the right artist who understands you and your style. Someone who will spend a few intimate hours with you and your bridal party on your wedding day.
Book your hair and make-up trial as soon as you know what you will be wearing. This will be the moment you get a real glimpse into how you will look and feel on your big day. Go armed with photos of what you’d like, a picture of your dress and if you can take your veil along.
If you are having a destination wedding arrange a trial in advance for soon after you arrive at your destination before your wedding day. Even if it’s a week or a couple of days before the wedding this is important to get done to ensure that your artist and you have made all the important decisions, discussed timelines and all other arrangements before the big day.
If a trial is not possible have your “home” stylist document step by step instructions and photos for your look down to every last hairpin to make sure your destination stylist gets it right on the day.
