"That's why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that through helping people see the beauty in themselves, I could try and find it in me." - Kevyn Aucoin If you were to translate “Skoonlief” to English, it would mean “beauty”. The fairytale “Beauty and the Beast” holds great meaning to the philosophy behind Skoonlief. Once we discover beauty in others, this inner discovery also leads to an outward transformation . Making my clients enhance their natural beauty, also enhances my life. It is a magical and fulfilling moment once a client sees herself in the mirror. At Skoonlief I try to give my brides a make-up experience that boosts how they feel about themselves. Be it a fashion shoot, special occasion or your wedding day – I try to make you feel the most beautiful you have ever felt. I believe in the use of professional products and I’m a keen follower of beauty blogs and magazines to give my clients the best possible service as well as advice. Having completed my studies as make-up artist (also airbrush make-up) and hair stylist, I decided to specialize in bridal make-up. Being part of a bride’s special day is one of the greatest privileges a make-up artist can have, and one I relish.
