Hi, I’m sam!

Ever since I can remember I have loved sketching and to me being a makeup artist is just an extension of that.  I am continuously striving to improve my knowledge and experience in the field of makeup artistry. As a result, I have gained a wide range of skills in various makeup techniques.


I am a Pretoria East based, freelance professional Makeup Artist. In 2009 I completed a Makeup Artist Course through Camelot International and in 2015 I decided to develop my skills further by completing a certificate in Professional Make-up Design, which included Special Effects, through Kohl Academy, where I was awarded with an award for Excellence and Diligence.

I have also attended Makeup Masterclasses with top American makeup artist and beauty educator Donna Mee, American multi Emmy Award winning Makeup Artist and Educator Kevin James Bennett and Sir John (singer Beyonce’s personal makeup artist).  In 2017 I was awarded by Stageline SA and 27 Red with an award for makeup artist of the year.

“Thank you so much for everything. I even recommended you to a lot of other people. You are really blessed with such a great talent. When you left, 15 minutes before I had to go into the Church, it started to hail. Hailing tennis balls. And my make up didn’t even come off a little bit. Some of the bridesmaids slept with their makeup on and still looked gorgeous the next morning.  Hope just the best for you.”
