As it turns out, SABC 1 LIVE presenter Minnie Dlamini doesn’t need a huge team of people to help make her look so effortlessly glam. She is, however, addicted to MAC cosmetics and likes to have fun in regards to her nails…
What’s keeping you busy right now?
I’m busy working on securing clients and working on projects with my new company MAD Concepts. We’re a marketing, project management and promotional company. Its a lot of work, we launched on my 21st birthday and everything is going really well.
What’s the one cosmetic item you simply couldn’t live without?
My MAC Studio Fix powder foundation! Its makes me look fresh and flawless without the heavy feeling of foundation.
If we were to turf out your make-up bag, what would we find in there?
My Studio Fix compact, black liquid and pencil eyeliner, shimmery gold and black eye shadow, natural apricot blush, waterproof mascara and nude and baby pink lipstick – all from MAC, I just love their make-up.
In regards to facial skincare, what are your favourite products?
I love the Dermalogica skin care range; their face wash is amazing.
And how’d you take care of that bod?
I have never been a gym fan, so I substitute that with sport. I play a lot of tennis and netball and that keeps me fit. But I think the gym is calling me; I’m not nearly as active as I should be and I love my food… So gym it is… soon… maybe! Ha ha!
What products do you use on your hair?
My hair is usually in a weave, so I use Kair Strengthening Silicon serum and then on my natual hair I use Organic Root Stimulator’s Olive Oil range; from their relaxers to their hair food.
Which perfumes do you wear?
I love changing my fragrances otherwise I get bored. In summer I usually use Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue or DKNY Pure. Right now, I’m wearing Hugo Boss Essence de Femme.
What nail polish colours are you rocking at the mo?
My nails are natural-looking acrylic with sliver glittery tips.
Who’s in your little black book of beauty?
I get my hair styled by Lebo at Afrodizziyak in Randburg, go to Sorbet in Hyde Park for nails and my actual hair pieces are from Barbilicious by Babalwa Mneno.
What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received or have to give?
Never sleep with make-up on your face and drink lots of water! And a facial once a month never hurts!
