I wear make-up almost all the time —SA media mogul, Bonang Matheba

As a popular South African radio DJ, television presenter and host of various high profiled awards shows, Bonang Matheba is a force to reckon with and a source of beauty inspiration for many South African women. She shares her beauty tips and secret in this interview with Marie Claire magazine.


What make-up trend are you following now and why?

The graphic, less defined subtle smokey eye.


 What are your dos and don’ts when it comes to eyebrows?

Eyebrows are like the frame of your face, I probably spend most of my time getting the perfect brow. My biggest do is not to ignore their natural arch. When you are plucking your eyebrows, your aim should be to define their natural shape.


Which do you prefer, Kojal or liquid liner and why?

I like them both as I use them for different reasons. For my everyday make-up, I use kojal as it is not messy; but for winged eyes, I use liquid eyeliners.


 What is your night skin regime?

With my line of job, I wear make-up almost all the time. So it is vital for me to take care of my skin. I wash my face at least three times when removing make-up, then I tone sparingly and avoid scrubbing my skin harshly.
