Age: 34

Oc­cu­pa­tion: Client Ex­ec­u­tive My friend Wendy Male­hase mo­ti­vated for me to have this makeover. She wrote, “My friend re­cently lost weight and still dresses like it’s win­ter, even in sum­mer, be­cause she’s afraid of how she looks now. The makeover will help boost her con­fi­dence and get her groove back.” It was sweet of her. I love my hair and the way the make-up was done.

MAKE-UP

“Ntombi has beau­ti­ful eyes, pop­ping cheeks and lips. The mis­sion was to make her look even bet­ter. I de­cided on a nat­u­ral eye look us­ing a nude pal­ette, and used a bronzer to high­light her gor­geous cheeks. I fin­ished her look with red lips,” says make-up artist Khumo Ng­wenya.

HAIR

“She al­ready had corn­rows, which is good be­cause they keep the hair pro­tected when wear­ing wigs. We de­cided to com­plete her look with curly and straight wigs. I liked how the curly wig struc­tured her face and looked good on her,” says hair­styl­ist Melford from Melford Di­vas Hair.

EX­PE­RI­ENCE

How did you feel af­ter the makeover?

I’ve been think­ing of the right word, ‘en­thu­si­as­tic’ sums ev­ery­thing for me!

What les­son did you learn?

I must wear the cor­rect size and what suits my in­di­vid­ual body shape.
