Client feedback


“I wanted to get my photos before I sent this mail, and have attached some for you. Now to plan a wedding is nothing short of exciting, scary, intimidating and exhilarating! In this process, you need people who you can trust implicitly, and I needed you to know that I would recommend you to any and everybody!! Your skills as a makeup artist are exceptional! You managed to keep me calm, not only on the day but every since our first contact. You were professional and focused, which made me feel reassured, yet also approachable and open to my needs, which made me feel important and heard.  The skill with which you did my makeup and hair is phenomenal, and I am so incredibly grateful that I found you!” (message has been shortened).  LEATIA STEMMET

“I got the pictures last week… they are amazing! THANK YOU so much for making me look so stunning.  My friends and family are in awe of how beautiful I looked. I reply saying,  it’s amazing what a make-up artist and a photographer can do to make a drab person look stunning!!! LOL! My eyelashes were unbelievably stunning…thank you so much, Donna.  My mom looked beautiful too, (no signs of pigmentation). ”  ZENAIDA

“When it comes to one of the most important days of your life, the day you get married, you want everything to be perfect. This is why I am so happy that I left my makeup and hair in the expert hands of Donna Hay. Being a perfectionist herself, she did such an AMAZING job & I was truly thrilled with the results. She is incredibly talented & will no doubt transform and beautify you for your special day. She listens to what clients want whilst adding her own touch of expertise and advice. She is professional, yet friendly.

I am extremely particular when it comes to my makeup and I would not trust anyone else to get it just right, especially on my wedding day. THANK YOU, Donna Hay, for making me feel so beautiful on my special day!” TAMMARYNE OLIVIA MARAIS.
