I was fortunate enough to receive an invite to the first Make-up Designory (MUD) KZN showroom from the talented Prelisha Naicker. If you would like to know about MUD makeup then keep on reading!
Make-up Designory was founded in 1997 in North Hollywood, California. According to their site, MUD makeup was, "created with the insight and expertise of professional make-up artists. All of our make-up and tools go through a rigorous testing process in challenging, real-world situations, from the harsh conditions of a remote film location to the bright lights of Broadway."
At the launch, I met Brenda Botha. Brenda, who has been in the beauty industry for over a decade, is the owner of MUD South Africa since 2012.
I was able to see Brenda in her element as concealed and blended away. Her client had a natural makeup look with some bronzing to chizzle out her cheekbones. The end product was flawless. There was no creasing or harsh lines. Brenda was able to obtain this effortless makeup look due to her years of experience in the makeup world as well as the high standard and quality of MUD makeup.
Prelisha Naicker launched the first KZN showroom on the 6th May 2016 in Umhlanga Ridge. Prelisha has enjoyed experimenting with makeup from a young age. Most girls enjoyed making doll houses with Barbie or playing pretend tea parties but not Prelisha. Makeup was her happy place which usually resulted in makeup smears and marks being left around her mom's room, especially pink lipstick.
As mentioned above, the showroom is located in Umhlanga Ridge. If you want to get into your car and drive on over right now then type in the following address into your Garmen and your set to go!
Shop 1, Platinum Towers,
MUD has a wide range of products such as eyeshadows; blush; cream foundation; primer; and lipsticks. There are a variety of shades to accommodate people with different complexions. My favourite has to be their bronze eyeshadow. MUD products are highly pigmented to ensure that they last the entire day. The products are very light on your skin but this does not take away from its ability to create a full coverage makeup look. The concealer, in particular, is very buildable. The staff at the launch were very helpful and knowledgeable about their products.
If you are looking for some products to create a natural makeup look that is long lasting and light on your skin, then pop into Illuminate Makeup showroom and get to know the MUD brand. I know I definitely will.
