Monique Make-up Artistry

Monique du Toit

As a professional make-up artist based in Cape Town I provide a luxury service to all my clients. I have been working in the make-up industry for many years. I have a positive and dedicated approach to every job, priding myself in my great work ethic and perfectionism. My training started at Mac cosmetics in 2010 where I have been privileged to assist the senior artist for MAC Cosmetics South Africa.

I have been honoured to work on various platforms for them such as Cape Town, Johannesburg and Africa Fashion week. Freelancing in the stills and film industry has given me the opportunity to work with the best in advertising, editorial and TV productions such as Top Billing, LiquiFruit, and various Fashion editorials.

I take great pride in one on one interaction, giving me the ability to share my knowledge and passion about make-up techniques that the client can use long after I have left.

I love being involved in the entire process of the wedding, offering a unique package deal from the time of the engagement shoot right through to the actual wedding day. What truly separates my services is my dedication to making my brides experience truly memorable, that will be treasured for a lifetime.

"I have had the pleasure of working with as well as representing Monique as an agent for the past year. She is a unique talent with an xceptional work ethic. Every face she paints is a masterpiece."
Rene de Wit- make up artist/ owner of Gorgeous2Go

"Monique has a unique style of make-up and her energy that she puts into her has no bounds. She's meticulous, studies her models' face and make the absolute best of that face, meticulously. She is not scared of doing totally dramatic make up on a shoot brief that requires just that. Above all Monique is amazing to work with!"
Fiona Jacobs- interior designer/ actress/ model

"Monique's magic fingers can make you beautiful instantaneously and keep that natural look at the same time. She is very talented, friendly and helpful. Thank you Monique for all the times I have called you at the last minute and you were always ready to go, never letting me down. Thank you for being flexible and your professionalism. The end results have always been amazing!"
