2017-03-30 06:02

Rashieda Mali came into the beauty business by default; she was asked by a friend to do her make-up, and a fate would have it, was bitten by the beauty bug.

And the cash tills are ringing, as the saying goes.

As a self-taught make-up artist, the hoo-haas she is making since taking up the art, means a livelihood for her.

Rashieda as she is popularly know, discovered her talent after she was approached by local Grade 12 learners who were impressed with her own make-up.

The learners asked her to be their resident make-up artist building up to their matric ball event in 2016.

“I did not know that my make-up was so eye-catching until I was approached by some learners from Langa High School who were planning for matric ball.

Suddenly, word spread and I received calls from strangers, asking me to do their make-up.

It dawned on me that I do posses talent to make people look and feel good.

I feel happy now that my business is becoming well known. I never attended any training for it, but I beat professionals in their own game.”

Since word of mouth spread about her art, her cellphone has ben ringing off the mast, she says.

“People invite me pre-event and invitations to do their make-up.”

She added that her dream is to crack it in the film industry.

Rashieda says she is also a fashionista who sells clothes to those who dress in style.

“I post my clothes online and I get customers. I also get calls from parents who want me to assist them when they want to buy Christmas clothes for their children and people who want to look stunning for the event they are attending. I was also hired to be a wardrobe artist for actors in the Amaza television series which was shot in the Artscape theatre, last year.

Rashieda says she was also the choreographer for the Mapantsula Dancers for the opening ceremony of the 2003 International Cricket Council’s World Cup, which was held at the Newlands Stadium.

She has also had a bit acting job in the international film Safe House, some of which scenes were shot in Langa.

She was also featured in a movie titled Felix which was also shot in the city few years ago.

Customer Zonke Mlalandle, heaped praises on the work done by Rashieda.

“I love her work. She has a good customer service and always lightens up my day whenever I come for make-up.

I also see her as a motivational speaker, because her advice would leave you stronger for any challenge that you are facing. She has a sense of empathy,” Mlalandle said. Contact Rashieda: 0711097028.
