Hi! I’m Tatiana!
I’m a professional makeup artist, with over 19 years experience, and am also a qualified Aesthetician specialising in skincare . I love all things beauty but, more than that, I love showing women that their beauty is already there, just waiting to be enhanced by the right products and techniques.
I am centrally based in Centurion,(Pretoria area), Gauteng. Before that, I was based in the gorgeous coastal town of Knysna, Western Cape for 9 years.
I qualified as an aesthetician (or beauty therapist) in 1997 in Pretoria, after which I opened my own small salon. As I began to meet and work with different women, I fostered a real love for cosmetics and beauty products, seeing first-hand how they can tweak and complement natural features to create the very best version of each of my unique clients.
In 2001, I delved deeper into the world of aesthetics, and qualified as a Professional Make-up Artist from The Make-up School in Johannesburg. This allowed me to hone my skills and learn even more about the art that I love.
With more than 19 years experience in the makeup and beauty industries, I have learned that make-up does not make anyone beautiful. It only enhances and brings out the unique features that make each woman beautiful in her own rights. When make-up is done properly, it can mask flaws and enhance features in a natural, striking way. But, if applied incorrectly, the result can be an artificial, heavy look that does not feel good or photograph well.
I firmly believe that a beautiful skin is the key to your make-up looking flawless and feeling natural. So, I can also advise you on the best skincare products and treatments that are designed to get your skin looking and feeling as healthy as possible, creating the best canvas for the make-up to follow. They also have the long-term advantage of making the aging process as graceful and healthful as possible. For this reason, I do not compromise on the quality of the makeup and beauty products that I use. I insist on the very best for each of my clients, based on their skin, their needs and the end result that we are working together to achieve.
