Recently I attended a product event at Edenvinne in Menlyn, and whilst I was there I got to browse through some of the gorgeous beauty products that were available. I managed to pick up the most divine makeup sponge I have ever tried, and it came from a local brand called “Andi Beauty”. I realised that I had been following this small business for some time, but hadn’t managed to get my hands on any of their products as yet. But that all changed once I got home and was able to try out the sponge whilst applying my makeup.
Andi Beauty is changing the way we as South African’s view makeup and is bringing the most gorgeous, high-end makeup to all of us at affordable rates. Plus, they are having a huge sale on a lot of their products, so I would really recommend you go try them out and support local. I couldn’t wait to chat to Andile about her passion and share this with all of you.
