The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - KARISHMA DIPA

IF HOLLYWOOD make-up artist Hrush Ache­myan lis­tened to her de­trac­tors, she wouldn’t have been the suc­cess she is to­day.

De­spite the wide­spread crit­i­cism, the beau­ti­cian has man­aged to stay true to her pas­sion which has led to her work­ing with the likes of the Kar­dashian and Jen­ner sis­ters.

“Ev­ery­one told me to stop, but if I had lis­tened I wouldn’t be here to­day,” she told a gath­er­ing of beauty en­thu­si­asts in Joburg this week.

Ache­myan was in South Africa for the first time to host The Ul­ti­mate Make-up Show,a live make-up up tu­to­rial at Mon­te­casino to com­mem­o­rate Women’s Day.

This event was the first of its kind, with scores of mostly women fork­ing out thousands of rand to book a spot. They were wel­comed by me­dia per­son­al­ity Bo­nang “Queen B” Matheba, host of the day’s pro­ceed­ings.

Queen B con­fessed that she is an avid fol­lower of Ache­myan’s work and is glued to the artist’s so­cial me­dia ac­counts’ make-up tips and tricks.

The crowd learnt about the US artist’s trade se­crets as she ap­plied a va­ri­ety of makeup to fash­ion blog­ger Sashi Naidoo’s lovely face.
