Make me over
Ntombi Malimba is celebrating her recent weight loss by learning how to dress for her size and shape
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.
“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.
“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.
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.
