Hello, I am Mariska Potgieter. I am a professional makeup artist, permanent makeup artist, hairstylist and skincare specialist based in South Africa.
I have a passion for helping women discover their inner beauty.
My career in beauty first began in 2009 after I attended the Face to Face Beauty & Design School where I qualified as a professional makeup artist. My love for makeup only continued to grow, and I originally worked for Esteé Lauder before I began testing the waters as a freelance makeup artist on the weekends. I pride myself on being a modern, creative, and innovative makeup artist. I am always researching makeup techniques and hairstyles, experimenting and advancing my skills.
In September of 2016 I expanded my services to include offering permanent makeup application, and I became a micro-pigmentation specialist.
After being encouraged by my family to enter the permanent makeup market, I obtained my fundamental training from Nouveau Contour. Wanting to expand my field and broaden my knowledge in my permanent makeup career, I received additional Microblading training from Suzé Steyl from Cherryink. Furthermore, I did as many advanced courses as I could to ensure that I am always able to give my clients top quality services and access to a wealth of up to date knowledge and information.
In June of 2018, I did my MESO Lift Therapy training with international master trainer, Mandi Barnard from Mandi Barnard International PMU Academy & Procedures. In 2019 I attended the very elite masterclasses of international trainer, Tatiana Polivanova from the Ukraine in advanced shaded eyeliner and advanced microblading techniques.
The services I offer, including makeup application, permanent makeup application and skincare caters for all my clients’ needs, and aims to get them feeling their absolute best with or without makeup.
