Blush Cape Town

I have always been skeptical about anything permanent. Or anything regarding getting ink onto your body. What if you regret it? Okay, so if you have the money, laser is an option. But what if you don’t? Eeeeek!

Taking care of your skin = Taking care of YOU.

Being in the industry, I have realised how stressful my work schedule can really become. Every day consists of long hours, little sleep, a lot of sun, heat, sweat OR very cold temperatures and rainy weather - AND shooting outdoors for hours – All of these factors can cause a lot of skin damage.

Beauty and the Blender

‘Wet, Squeeze, Bounce.’ That’s the beauty blender mantra. 

I only recently learned how to apply my makeup the correct way. You know, all of us see the tutorials on YouTube and all the makeup fails trending on social media. So, I started experimenting, trying new products and even learned how to contour and learned how to highlight the cheekbones. After many fails and almost looking like a clown, I think finally found the perfect makeup brand that works for me, my skin colour and skin type. MUD Make-up Designory foundation changed my life.
