Makeup and Hair Artist in Cape Town
Starting out in Stellenbosch, Bernice studied the art of makeup and hair artist full-time and grew a love and appreciation for both. Coming from a background of art, she didn’t think twice about making this her profession. Diving straight into work after her studies, she worked with international models and photographers helping secure a good portfolio, which offered her the incredible opportunity of working as a full-time artist in the film industry for shows such as Afternoon Express, Top Billing, Doctor’s Orders, The Doctor Mol Show, Pasella, Win A Home and Presenter Search on SABC3, which offered her to work as head make-up artist for Expresso Morning Show for the past 4 years. The industry has taught her a lot, working in a fast-paced, stressful and demanding live show environment.
Not only to work efficiently but good people skills and patience. In understanding the film industry, she secured other work in film, like working alongside American band, Faded Paper Figures for their music video shot in Cape Town, Wedding Bashers, Slank, Met n Huppel In Die Stap, Mercedes, Bosch, Siemens, ER24 and Dubai Tourism which gave her the incredible opportunity to work in Dubai twice. Her love for her work not only translates well in the film industry, but in the wedding industry as well, where she takes a lot of pride in sharing her skills on someone’s special day. Working for over eight years as a professional artist, she is incredibly grateful for what she has learned and very excited to see what the future holds.
