Hi and welcome to my first official blog for HR Hair & Make-up artistry, some of you may know that I use to blog for Pout Perfection, so I’m not entirely new to this.

However my blogs will take somewhat of a turn on here in comparison to what I use to write about for pout perfection.

This will be my personal blog so everything on here will be of my own opinion, experiences and more.

So lets dive into the formalities…

Who am I:

I’m Hesmarie Redelinghuys, which is what “HR” stands for, I am a make-up artist based in Gauteng Pretoria, with a little over 13 years experience in the field, from in front of the camera to behind the camera. I am a cruelty free artists which means my kit consists of only animal tested FREE products, in other words non of the products have been tested on animals. I have been in the industry fulltime for 5 years now with experience in Bridal make-up, Photographic, film, TV ads, pageants and more. Most of you may remember me from working with MUD (Make-up Designory) one of my favourite professional cruelty free brands available in South Africa. I was involved with them for just over two or 3 years but then finally took a leap of faith and opened my own studio in 2015, which means this year July I have been on my own for 2 years and I couldn’t be happier. I have learned so much and met so many new people over these two years and I am beyond thankful to each and everyone who has added to making HR hair & make-up artistry the success that it is today.

Yup… This is me, I was going to use a more “professional” image but then realised that those are all outdated, so this will just have to do as it’s from my last shoot. Photographer: Henk Steyn


What to expect:

What can you expect from my blogs…

Well anything and everything that’s make-up relate.

From product reviews, cruelty free brands to try, weddings and events I’ve done or got involved in as well as behind the scenes info on what I get up to on set.

Hopefully I’ll have the time to grow this blog to something incredible and at some point even include a tutorial or two.
