“We are two adventurous souls from Stellenbosch striving to capture perfect moments with a touch of art. We love travelling, people and celebrating life”
Wilhelm & Analja


Make Up & Hair Artist
As a little girl I always played with makeup, a cute Thinker-belle set was my chosen toolkit with which I created wonderful works of art. Most of my playtime was spent in the hair salon of my mother whom allowed me to absolutely explore the creative side of me. 
After studying skincare, working in the beauty industry and teaching at Isa Carstens academy in Stellenbosch, I realised that my one and only passion would always be makeup. I always dreamt of making woman pretty and making a difference in someone’s life. 
I opened my own makeup and hairstyling school in 2010 and I am very proud to say that the last 11 years in the makeup industry has been a wonderful and fulfilling journey and I am exactly were I belong, I am living my dream! Everyday! 
I am also very much in love with my very handsome husband, married for the last 11 years. And have the 2 most beautiful boys, Wilhelm and Daniel. 
I thank God for every day and for every opportunity and I thank Him for holding my brushes and for giving me the knowledge to see what my client’s needs are.  And I give all the glory to Him. 
Love Alicia
