I’m not shy to admit that I have always had a intimate relationship with make-up. Yet, sadly like most mothers, there were those lean years, when the children were little and their needs took priority over everything else.
Thankfully the lean years have passed and I have been able to fill my drawer with a few mascaras and more than a few tubs of colourful powders and creams with which to adorn my skin. I am also fortunate to be working with the lovely ladies at the Meyersdal Nail and Beauty Studio who have been kind enough to look after my make-up while I am a semi-finalist in the Mrs South Africa competition.
A few weeks ago, their talented make-up artist Michelle Mustoe got me photo ready for a fundraising event at the picturesque Thaba Ya Batswana Eco Hotel and Conference Centre. It was on a Friday evening and I had come through a very long week. My skin was pale and my eyes showed my exhaustion. As I settled into the chair and chatted to Michelle about her career, she got to work dipping her brushes and working her magic.
I loved seeing all Michelle’s little tubs and little pots from different cosmetic houses laid out. Her favorite brand is from the House of Kryolan. I had not used this brand before so I was excited to try it. When Michelle applied the foundation, I was impressed by how creamy and light it felt and how quickly it settled onto my skin. We chatted about blending and using a darker shade for contouring.
For my eyes, we used a lovely glitter powder on the inner and kept the overall look soft and simple. Usually, I apply liquid eye liner for a bold look. This time Michelle used a pencil with gentle soft strokes blended with the eye shadow. Lastly, Michelle applied mascara. Michelle and I are both believers that mascara opens up one’s eyes and completes any look. In Michelle’s experience, she loves the feel and the look that Kryolan’s range of mascara give to lashes. I loved how well it extended my natural lashes and lifted my eyes from tired to “excited and bright”.
Thank you Lizelle Kruger and Michelle Mustoe of the Meyersdal Nail and Beauty Studio for all your support. I love your energy and I appreciate your skill.
I can definitely recommend the ladies at Meyerdal Nail and Beauty Studio to get you photo ready for your next big event.
