ABOUT ACCENTUATE MAKEUP AND HAIR

Jacqui Trinder the Creative Director/Owner of Accentuate. Hair & Makeup studied at London’s premier makeup school called London School of Beauty and Makeup (featured in British Vogue and British Elle Magazines). Here, she obtained the internationally recognised I.M.A. Qualification (International Makeup Association).

After returning home after eight years of working in London, she began working as a M.A.C Manager straight away. Working at M.A.C she gained some great training and experience as part of the M.A.C Events Team South Africa, working on numerous nationwide Fashion Weeks including Africa Fashion Week. This lead to a vast knowledge of trends and ability to work on different skin tones. She was also fortunate to work with style gurus Trinny & Susannah from the BBC TV series What Not to Wear. Jacqui travelled to Berlin with M.A.C and also worked on the Winter Olympics Ceremony in Canada.

Her many services include:

Professional Hair Styling and Makeup Application as well as Personalised Makeup Lessons and Bachelorette Party Makeup Workshops. She specializes in coverage of tattoos, acne, vitelago (skin whitening disease) and scar coverage. Her Bridal Makeup Philosophy: I know that the most important thing is that I have a clear understanding of what you would like to look like on your special day. This we achieve together at your trial. I merely enhance your natural features so that when your Groom is saying “I do” he is thinking “how did I manage to marry her?”

I ensure that my bride is totally at ease on her wedding day. My sense of humor comes in handy when calming those last minute nerves. I travel to your venue so that you are relaxed and calm. I am friendly and reliable and pride myself on never letting my brides down on such an important occasion.

You spend a fair amount on your professional photos so I ensure that when you look at them in the excitement after the wedding and in years to come you will still be enthralled at the person you were on that day.

Your Trial

I love meeting my brides at their trial and working with them to come up with a look that they are happy with. Accentuating someone’s features on their special day is an honor. I will accentuate your natural beauty and bring out your best features and perhaps downplay those you suggest. I can promise that your makeup will not only look immaculate and amazing, but that it will last the whole wedding through.

Working alongside the best photographers in the industry has taught me subtle ways of using makeup to ensure you look fabulous not only in person, but also in your photos. I ensure your makeup is timeless, so that when you look at your photos in years to come you don’t look dated. With over 15 years experience on countless brides and models, I can assure you, you are in good hands.

I pride myself on NEVER letting a bride down on such an important and special day. I keep in contact from the first moment, answering all queries in a timely manner and providing a professional service and application.

Dear Jacqui

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing such an important role at my wedding.

You made me (and my bridesmaids) feel so comfortable on the day and it was such a pleasure to have you around while we were getting ready.  

I didn’t want to have a lot of people around me when I was getting ready (because I knew it would be an overwhelming experience) but I can honestly say that your presence was so appreciated, particularly because it felt like you were a good friend (and not a stranger) when you interacted with all of us during the course of the day.

You were a perfectionist when you did my make-up and I couldn’t have been happier with the end result.  I was also pleased to arrive home after the wedding and to have noticed that my make-up had stayed intact all day and night!

I wish you all the best and I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend you to any bride to be. I also am most certainly will not forget the professional, kind and friendly service you provided.

Kind regards

Siobhan Leyden

Jacqui was an absolute delight to have around and fit right in as my bridesmaids, the moms and I all huddled into the guesthouse to start our transformation for the big event. She masterfully enhanced each of our unique features and we all felt like a million bucks after a few strokes from her brushes  

I was always scared that I would be buried under kilograms of make-up on my wedding day; I guess the last thing you want is to lift up your veil and having your would be hubby not recognising his soon to be wife! I always felt at ease in Jacqui’s expert hands and knew that she was going to make me look like my very best self. She listened intently to what I wanted and always made sure that I was happy with the end result. She ensured that the make-up was just the right balance between being enough to make beautiful photographs and being subtle enough to my husband right in the eye when I say "I do"!

The most patient and friendly makeup artist I've ever met. She is such a natural in what she does... My makeup was done to perfection, to suit the style of wedding. Would definitely recommend Jacqui for any bride to be.

Wow where do I start? Jacqui did such an amazing job! Right from our first correspondence Jacqui was professional, yet also very friendly and understanding.

In the trial she really helped me to see what would or wouldn't work for me, and together we came up with the perfect look for my wedding. On the day she arrived right on time, and made everyone feel at ease. She blended in so well, you would never have guessed that I'd only met her a few weeks before.

She did such an incredible job on all the bridesmaids - I was scared they might even upstage me ;) I was SO SO happy with my makeup - it lasted so well and was exactly what I wanted! I had so many compliments on all the makeup! In fact just this past week one of my bridesmaids said: your make up artist was amazing!

Thanks Jacqui for being so professional and passionate about what you do - it really is a winning combination.

I live in Johannesburg, so when my fiance and I fell in love with a wedding venue on the Natal South Coast, I knew I had it in for myself in terms of organizing the whole shindig. One of my concerns was the beauty aspect to our special day- who would be able to do my make-up?

Since I am the google queen, I managed to track Jacqui down and really liked what I saw on her website. I have skin allergies, but am very familiar with Mac make up, so this was imperative for me. The question was: would Jacqui be able to travel all the way down to the South Coast to help me. Her answer: "of course!". Nothing was ever too much for Jacqui. From organizing the trial, to making her way down the coast, to doing the make up of my own, my moms and SIX bridesmaids, she took it all in her stride.

Jacqui made me feel so at ease on our special day, and more so, so made me feel so beautiful! Our make-up was exquisite and she managed to ensure we were ALL so happy! Thank you so much for everything Jacqui. I will most definitely refer ALL my friends your way. Your professionalism, calmness, and caring touch is exactly what EVERY bride needs on her special day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I cannot recommend Jacqui highly enough.

She is a fantastic makeup artist. Jacqui is very friendly and professional. Arrived on time and made me feel very relaxed which is very important on your big day! My bridesmaids makeup was stunning and mine was flawless.

She even recommended makeup I could buy to use later on that day. I was so happy with my makeup and recommend Jacqui to everyone.
