COSMO Beauty Masterclass 2018





If you’ve been subscribers of Rave Review since we went live 8 years ago then you’ll know that one of my greatest loves and passions is all things makeup. The Oxford Dictionary defines my must haves as 'products used to enhance and beautify the appearance or fragrance of the body', and while we cannot argue with the powers that be all the way in Oxford, we have a definition of our own. In my world, my makeup collection is my most prized possession; it’s the kind of love that beauty editors know to be true. 

Lets be honest, when we pack our bags to travel somewhere, how on earth do we choose between each ‘baby’ so that we don’t hurt one of their feelings or make them feel unloved. In turn we end up leaving clothes behind and taking them all instead, because we can.  For true makeup lovers, our products and tools help us to feel confident, and for me, it’s even led me to become a makeup artist. Make no mistake, for so many women, your makeup becomes your identity.  

So what is it about makeup that led to such an obsession so to speak? It’s the way makeup can make you feel as a woman thats so special. It’s the magic it creates, the flaws you can hide and the features you can enhance. I’m a firm believer that makeup will enhance your natural beauty, and play-with your favourite features.  Makeup is there for us through thick and thin, and never lets us down. Whether it’s a bold red lip to take on the world, or a gorgeous highlight and contour to accentuate and enhance one’s natural beauty, it leaves us feeling fabulous. But for many women the amount of things that you can do with makeup can seem intimidating, especially if you’re a beginner. Maybe you would love to learn how to contour and highlight but don’t know where to start, or wing liner? Maybe the thought of doing one makes you want to drink a Martini ASAP. Well, our friends  at COSMOPOLITAN are saving the day, and your makeup bags. 



The COSMO Beauty Masterclass 2018 (#COSMOBeautyMasterclass), brought to you by Clicks. is the ultimate day of beauty, glamour and fun. It will take place on the 24th and 25th of November at the Mall of Africa in Johannesburg from 9:00am to 3:30pm.

Join the COSMO team for a fabulous day of beauty masterclasses. COSMO’s deputy editor, Noxolo Mafu will host guests as they glam it up with a team of industry experts, including natural hair guru Urban Mimz and makeup-artist-to-the-stars Ntatho Mashishi. Guests will participate in demos and panels and will even get to take home the Clicks-supplied makeup kits at the end of the day. From brows to braids, learn all the tips and tricks in line with the hottest beauty trends. Girlfriends, you know you need this! What a fabulous idea for a girls day out. 

In addition to the expert tips, COSMO Beauty Masterclass 2018 will be jam-packed with fun activities. Get your nails done at mani stations, before touching up hair and makeup for some Insta-worthy pics at the photo wall. You and your besties can compare looks in the lounge areas, while sipping free drinks courtesy of Xcite.

Attendees won’t leave empty-handed. ALL guests will be taking home a makeup-filled Clicks goodie bag valued at over R1500. Can you say “early Christmas present”?!

It’s like our hero Carrie Bradshaw says, “maybe the best any of us can do is not quit,  but play the hand we’ve been dealt, and ACCESSORISE what we’ve got”. The Cosmo Beauty Masterclass will allow you to accessorize; it’s out with the bling and in with the makeup! Just think of it this way - all of your new makeup treasures, tips and tricks, in the most perfect way possible, in the perfect setting; bringing out the glamorous diva in you along the way!
