Kamu | Kiss & Makeup


I have been a professional hair & makeup artist for 15 years now, and I love it!
I naturally find ART in anything I look at, and find myself getting inspiration from everything around me. I love creating, Its what I do for fun, work and rest


I enrolled at Face to Face Make-up College in 2006 where I excelled with TOP HONOURS in my class along with achieving an INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED DIPLOMA (City & Guilds, Cidesco & Itec) in make-up artistry, special effects, prosthetics and hair styling.

With 15 years experience, I have worked in every sphere of the make-up industry during my career so far. I have had the opportunity to work for MNET on various television productions, the X-FACTOR SA, TOP BILLING, IDOLS SA, TOP GEAR and THE BIGGEST LOSER SA, as well as the following movies, Angel, MR
BONES 2, Oil on Water and SPUD.

I have worked on various shoots including PLAYTEX, WONDER BRA, WEIGH-LESS, JOCKEY, FROGGIE, GCOUTURE, TEVO, TOMFOOLERY, GAME, NIVEA, FOX, ONEILL, VOLCOM, Grazia and the OPRAH MAGAZINE to mention a few. I had the fortunate opportunity to be the KEY MAKE-UP ARTIST for the MISS WORLD beauty pageant in 2009.

I am extremely passionate about my BRIDAL work and see it a true honour to be apart of the “big day”, some of my bridal work was featured on the cover of the Future Bride Cover 2010, the marriage meander magazine and in the Wedding Collection Magazine 2010 and the 2015 September issue.
The highlight of my career is when I opened my own studio in Durban north and created an agency with artists working under me. We sell make-up and run a busy studio doing hair, make-up and lashes, as well as teaching make-up lessons and workshops
