Happy Velvetines Day!

MATTE and glossy might come and go with beauty trends, but a velvet lippie will always be our number one classic choice. Velvet gives off a very soft, rich and luxurious appearance. Not quite shine free, but not quite glossy, velvet is the happy medium. Take a look at our choices for velvet lips in our favourite date night colour – red. Happy Velvetines Day!

I am Beauty Editor at People Magazine and a make-up artist. I have worked with many celebrities, including, Phumeza Mdaba, Boity, Zuraida Jardine and Rolene Strauss. I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
