In 2001 Natalie joined a performing arts company and found her passion immediately backstage assisting in the makeup department. Two years later she was enrolled into the prestigious Camelot International Training Academy where she completed a Health and Skincare Diploma. This included Makeup, waxing, skincare, massage and many more modalities within the industry. After completing her Diploma she was very active within the industry gaining experience, working with different products and improving skills by going for more training.
After managing spas like Granny Mouse Spa and Karkloof Spa and being exposed to the midlands wedding scene, Natalie finally branched off on her own and started her own business.
From here on she continued to work as a beauty therapist and makeup artist. Again after a thirst for knowledge Natalie furthered her makeup skill set by training with the renowned Lisa Bailey and assisted on fashion shows and commercials.
Today Natalie owns a bespoke beauty salon in Pietermaritzburg and remains very active as a makeup artist on the Midlands wedding scene as a preferred makeup artist to various photographers, hairdressers, venues and brides.
