How Bonang gets party-ready

Monday, 29 December 2014

Face of Revlon South Africa, TV host, radio DJ and all-round It-girl Bonang Matheba knows a thing or two about looking party-ready. She dazzles at every event and is never short of perfect make-up and an eye-catching outfit to match. We checked in with Bonang to find out what make-up look she’ll be rocking this festive season, and which three beauty products she simply cannot be without:

Getting ready for a party is always such a treat for me. Starts with a hot shower, then selecting the outfit and adding accessories to it, then the final stage of hair and make-up. A smokey eye and red lips is always my favourite look, easy to create and very edgy. The long lashes and hot lip colour trend is up there with my favourites at the moment.”

Bonang’s favourite products to achieve these looks:

  • Revlon Red Lipstick
  • Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Caramel 1
  • Revlon Matte Colourburst Balms in 205

    I wouldn’t do a smokey eye and strong lip colour – it’s too much stuff happening at the same time.

    I think party looks are about one statement thing, either lips or eyes. Too much can look cheap. I love a bold lip with a subtle eye. Lipstick has been my favorite thing to play with recently.
