Who am I

Janell Donders

I am an award winning professional make-up artist with over 18 years experience. I have been involved in the world of tv production and editorial styling, including several Miss World and Miss South Africa pageants.

In this time I have acquired valuable knowledge of the correct make-up, shading, and highlighting that is required by the photographers and videographers for the perfect wedding look.

As an artist I recognise the unique features and personality of each individual bride, and work with that to create a beautiful, flawless, natural and long lasting matte effect.

I love making each bride feel like their absolute most beautiful self on their wedding day – with pictures and memories to treasure for a life time.

I just wanted to say thank you for your services provided on my wedding day. Your work is unbelievable, very natural and subtle, and your makeup doesn't feel thick or heavy. I couldn't believe how amazing I looked in the photographer's photo's, like I just walked off of a magazine cover. I felt absolutely gorgeous as a bride should and it was all thanks to you! You are a lovely person and I will definately use your services again.


Thank you. Thank you. The wedding was amazing!!! You are truly gifted. For the first time ever, i did not look ghostly in my photographs. You made me look spectacular, which gave me such confidence, and allowed me to enjoy the photographer snapping away!!! Again thanks to you, i was not camera shy. Neil was amazed how beautiful i looked. You certainly will be hearing from quite a few of my friends, who are getting married in the near future.

Baie dankie vir die wonderlike grimmering wat jy met my troue gedoen het! Ek waardeer die harde werk wat jy daarin sit baie. Almal was mal oor hoe ek gelyk het en die feit dat ek soos ‘n engel gevoel het, het my dag net nog meer spesiaal gemaak. Jy was baie profesioneel en het ons almal altyd op ons gemak laat voel. Jy is ‘n engel en ek sal jou enige dag aanbeveel.

At long last life is slowly getting back to normal. I have forwarded you some pictures, and really want to take this opportunity to thank you for the brilliant make-up job, you did for my entire wedding party. You really created a relaxed atmosphere on a ‘VERY STRESSFUL RAINY DAY’. Your work is immaculate, and you are a true professional. I will take pleasure in recommending you to all my friends and associates.
