I’ve worked with dozens of makeup artists in projects like magazine covers, billboards and celebrity shoots. Maureen has always been my number 1 choice for a makeup artist. Apart from being a makeup guru, she is an artist at her craft. Her warm personality compliments all of my shoots and when I get the privilege to book her, I know my work will shine.
Maureen is one of South Africa’s best makeup artists and our country can be proud of her. Her portfolio speaks of professionalism, classic beauty and inspiration.
Loved your work! Felt comfortable and prepared to rock the stage in Johannesburg in front of 1800 people last year. Thank you again!
Maureen and I shared the stage at a conference where the client needed their staff members to up their customer service game. Maureen had the audience enthralled with her unique combination of practical insight and authentic wisdom. Each member of that audience left the room feeling confident, empowered, and excited to discover ways to let their true inner beauty shine in their outward appearance.
The feedback from the delegates was very positive and left some of the delegates speechless – that’s how good the presentation was. I am actually saddened that I could not attend your presentation. Once more thank you for your presentation and making our ladies look good.
To watch Maureen at work is to witness an image evolution… it’s like watching PhotoShop happen in real life!
A shadow dances over my face as Maureen gently lifts my face to the light. In the background of her softly lit studio, Katie Melua is lost in heaven. So am I. Thoughtfully, Maureen’s left eyebrow arches in concentration as she chisels me out of the stone of my anxiety’s, my mindless thoughts, and the demands of my diary. I am fixated on the shape of the brushes, the little containers of glittery magic and the gentle touch of the artist’s stroke on my eyelids. She bubbles with anecdotes, stories of beauty, and gems of wisdom. I fall into laughter. With carefully dabbed droplets of light, she brightens the dark contours of my soul and lost in the magic of the moment, I emerge – slowly, gently, gracefully, and flawless. I float out of her door, confident as an angel and steadfast as a sage. Touched by the brush of Maureen I am beautiful in every single way.
I contracted Maureen for a personal image consultation session as a thank you to my team. It is astonishing how the confidence each of my team members' now show in their overall appearance, styling of outfits, and makeup application. Maureen showed a unique ability to identify what every individual needed on both an emotional and physical level to tell their best story to the world through their appearance. A day with Maureen is a great investment.
The Management of the Michelangelo Hotel - Nelson Mandela Square, Johannesburg, and specifically our Hotel In-house Spa, partnered with Maureen Grobler regarding Quality Management, Operations Training and Coaching based on Leading Hotels of the World's Quality Assurance Standards this year. She is an excellent facilitator and leader in her field who understands the dynamics of the workforce and management within the Hospitality and Spa Industry, together with the ever changing International Guest requirements. Her contributions and determined approach have directly benefited the development and consistent improvement of the Michelangelo Hotel Spa Team. Without doubt, we endorse Maureen Grobler as one of our valued facilitators/educators in achieving the ultimate results from our team.
Maureen is not just a make-up artist: she is an artist. Working with her is watching an individual at the top of her craft create beauty at the brush of a single stroke. Her vision has always understood mine, and it’s an absolute pleasure to work along side such a professional and talented artist. I would recommend Maureen to anyone who takes their work seriously and wants added value to each project. Her fun, loving and creative nature is a plus at any set.
“I have used Maureen’s expert services on a number of occasions, and I can honestly say that she certainly enhances my best features while still making me look and feel natural when being photographed. This is a real confidence booster for anyone!”
