Hello future Bride & grooms, This is me, Rene. I think my profession is one of the most enjoyable in the world! Im not going to bore you with my credentials etc - but I worked and studied very hard to be where I am. My goal was to go international with my exams and I did!, passing with distinctions. I then did prosethetic make-up ( see gallery) which was fun and so creative.

Prosethetic make-up is done for film, TV, with special effects, eg: skin disorders, broken bones, etc. I actually started of with my interest being in hair. I couldnt afford premises, so straight after graduating, I opened a little salon in (would you believe) a flea market next to Makro in Durban. This operated on a Friday only.I saved enough money to start putting myself through college. I thought if you want to succeed, you have to get proper accreditation. I then found out that, Bridal and special occasion make-up was my forte, what I really wanted to do.

I helped out in college invigilating exams, when an examiner encouraged me to write my exams, practical and theory, because she loved my make overs and my attention to detail. I remember for my final exams, I broke the rule, and did make-up on a male model. That impressed the invigilator! I then started to teach make-up at college for a little while, and thats when I started, my own little studio. I take great pride in my brides and grooms. The grooms get spoiled just as much as the brides with facials, manicures, etc!

I work from my humble studio from my flat- so if you book a couple for treatments etc, its just you and me!, with a nice home cooked meal for lunch. Oh, of course, you will meet my little drama queen (my pet toy pom) that will keep you entertained!

Whats also close to my heart, are all my angels from Reach For A Dream. On behalf of all my brides, I sponsor my time to spoil these gorgeous precious souls.
Part of each bridal couple's payment goes towards fulfilling the dreams of children who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses, cancer, heart defects and HIV aids.
This I believe, is service to mankind and automatically creates good karma for the bridal couple. What a nice way to start your lives together by helping the disadvantaged. If you would like to sponsor more than what I do, we will chat later, ok. Lots of people like to feed or donate a little extra something.

So, go on, give me a call and lets chat about your essentials needs for your special day.
I do offer a complete package.

I look forward to hearing from you ...


Lee Singh

Rest In Peace My Darling...
You were a breath of fresh air!
