Well, where to begin? I love weddings, I’m known for using Airbrush Makeup and work mainly in the bridal industry – that’s the short version.
I adore my job - I love the diversity of induvial jobs and people I get to meet from all over the world, but weddings lie particularly close to my heart - being a part of your celebration in some small way makes my work so much more rewarding. Along with being a makeup artist I have also trained in hair styling which means I can make your hair pretty in a flowing curl or posh in a sleek chignon!
Oh, and I’m a qualified skincare therapist so you know I’m looking after your entirety and not just making you glow like the goddess you are.
I don’t consider myself as just your makeup artist, but also a support system for you in a day high in emotions. Literally, I’ve got you covered.
“Where do I even begin with the phenomenal Marnél?
I’ve had the privilege of having my make up done by her a few times and there was actually no doubt in my mind as to who would be doing my wedding hair & make up.
Every encounter with this incredible artist has been the biggest pleasure. Marnél has made me look and feel like an absolute goddess every single time.
My wedding day H&MU was perfectly timed by Marnél, stress-free and just perfect. She is calm, makes you giggle and just so talented.
I would recommend Marnél a million times over, without any reservation.”

“Thank-you so much for the incredible hair and make-up you did for me on my wedding day! You made feel so very beautiful! I really enjoy doing my own make-up myself so deciding not to do it on my wedding day was a really big deal for me and it was really important that I chose someone who I had complete trust in. From that first trial I knew I was in great hands! My bridesmaids and Mum's were all soo happy with their hair and make-up, and we got so many compliments on the day! I can't thank-you enough!”

“Marnel is not only a master of her craft but she understands makeup and skincare from the core up. She doesn't simply paint over everything but makes sure that the surface she is working on is radiant and alive, making her makeup work incredible. She really listens and understands each and every client and doesn't have a one size fits all approach but rather works with who that person is.”
- Claire Vogeli
