The Women4Women workshop was an absolute success. The ladies were treated to top makeup tips from celebrity makeup artist, La’eeqa Yunus. It was extremely well received. We saw women from all different backgrounds like lawyers, nail techs, permanent makeup techs etc. The women were treated to coffee, tea, bubbles, macaroons & chocolates upon arrival. The ladies were eager to learn all makeup techniques and were enthusiastic in their questions for their quest for knowledge.
They received a makeup kit to the value of R2000 which was double the value of what they paid. They learnt about products and how to use it. Tools & how to use different makeup tools. We had a lovely finger food lunch where the ladies got to mingle and learn and network with each other as well.
The ladies were also treated to a lovely chat with Cindy Nell where she shared her tips & tricks on how to market their brands and also gave them some insight on what they should be doing to grow and market their brands. They were also treated to one on one chats with Areeba Baker, social media manager for Cosmetix, influencer & blogger. The ladies were able to ask questions and also learn how she got her start in the industry.
They were also treated to a hands-on presentation by our digital coordinator on the different apps available to market your brand and create content. All in all, it as a fun day with lots of learning and teaching the ladies what the next step should be in their respective fields. The feedback we received from them was that it was great listening to all the passionate ladies hosting and it also reignited their flame to learn and move forward. It was a great day hosting the ladies and we look forward to the next one.
