Who are the founders behind your business
My name is Marcoline and I’m the co founder of La Lumiere. My best friend Lenize Becker and I started La Lumiere in South Africa in 2018. In 2019 my family moved to New Zealand and I decided to take La Lumiere internationally. My heart is to help, empower and make ladies feel beautiful.
Why would someone hire you?
Everything I do, I do out of love. My love for people and my heart for women. I will always go out of my way to make sure my clients feel beautiful and leave with a smile.
What do you love about what you do?
I LOVE to see my clients faces when they look in the mirror after I have done their makeup. I basically work for smiles. If they smile and feel confident, that’s what makes me happy!
What makes you different to your competitors
We care! I believe every bride should look beautiful and feel special on her wedding day. We care about our clients and what they want.
Best event you have been to and why?
The best event was also the saddest event. I did the makeup for a bride who’s fiancé had stage 4 cancer. They really wanted to get married but all finances was going towards medical bills. The best part for me was to see how the community came together and helped the family with the whole wedding. Vendors sponsored venue, catering, makeup, hair, photos, cake, flowers and décor. I was blessed to meet the bride – a phenomenally strong women.
