Marlinette is a Free-lance MAKEUP ARTIST and HAIRSTYLIST based in Cape Town, working across the Western Cape.

Having a wide range of experience – from Television, Fashion & Beauty through to Weddings – she has a diverse skill set.

Whether using AIRBRUSH or Traditional makeup, her focus is always on creating a look that is specifically tailored to the bride’s features and taste. She only uses the highest quality makeup brands.

Despite being driven and professional, she is friendly and down-to-earth. Her easy going manner makes her a pleasure to work with.

“I cannot say enough good things about Marli and her expertise. From trying out various hair and makeup styles at the trial where she was totally open to any ideas and honest about what would work for me – to the wedding day where she was cheerful and fun and calm – all while making myself and my 6 bridesmaids look absolutely stunning with perfect makeup and gorgeous hairstyles. I have never felt so beautiful, but natural and I credit it all to Marli’s genius touch with hair and make-up. The best decision I made was choosing Marli to do hair and makeup at my wedding.” – Bride-Taryn McKenna

An artist at heart, Marlinette loves that she can combine Art and a Passion for Beauty to make a bride feel beyond special and look naturally beautiful on her big day.
