Meet The Make Up Artist


Nice to meet you. My name is Cherese Chavonne, and I am a freelance Makeup Artist. I focus on and specialize in wedding and bridal makeup, however I offer services for any other special events you want to look your best for. My services are also available on-location which means that I can travel to you!

As an artist, I love making women feel good about themselves. What’s unique about my approach is that I ask questions and listen first. I find this so important because my client’s personal vision, needs, and comfort are the utmost priority. I love getting to know my brides, and enjoy hearing all about their wedding details. I truly appreciate the hard work & dedication it takes to plan such a special event. I also make it a focus to build & maintain relationships with both my new & past clients.

My aesthetic style as an artist is soft, fresh, timeless,elegant and sometimes edgy. I have a passion for, and focus on creating polished bridal looks. I really love to enhance client’s natural beauty, and I like for my clients to look & feel like the best version of themselves. I also make it a point to have open communication with my clients by encouraging feedback, listening, and asking the right questions.

I first got my start in the beauty world at age 16 when I started to model. It was there that my passion for cosmetics started. After matriculating – I knew I had to enhance my makeup skills.

I have a unique background as I come from the corporate & business world. I learned valuable firsthand experience on how to run a business, market my services, as well as interact with clients. Customer service & creating a memorable experience is a top priority for me.

Currently, I’m a freelance makeup artist living & working in the Durban area, the Sole distributor/Stockist of Unicorn Cosmetics™ in Africa, I am also an authorized Make Up Revolution retailer in SA and I’m fortunate to have other opportunities to showcase my work.

As a recent bride myself, I know firsthand all of the emotions when planning a wedding & that feeling of wanting to have everything perfect.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
