I am Deliwe Chipo Mutandiro and most people know me from my Instagram handle as themua_Deliwe. My career as a makeup artist took off when I met Jackie Mgido who was intrigued by my work and invited me to work for her. This was a life-changing opportunity for me. I worked for Jackie for several years and with the acquired skills, it was time for me to invest in self growth and branch out and establish my own studio.
My muse as a makeup artist is the transformation it brings; the never ending boundless options of making someone look so different.
Because the makeup industry is dynamic and it takes a lot of research to keep up with the latest trends, I am driven by the passion to learn new skills. Despite the achievements I have attained so far, I feel I am not where I want to be. Here are a couple of tips and tricks to enhance your natural beauty:
- Less is more- familiarize yourself with products that suit your skin tone best.
- Oily skin has to be toned before applying makeup to tighten your pores, remove any traces of dirt and impurities.
- Dry skin has to be moisturized before makeup application to avoid cracks after applying the foundation.
- Invest in a good regular facial, nurture yourself with massages and regular check-ups.
