Wednesday, 7 August 2013 marks the launch of the very first Make-Up Designory (MUD) in Johannesburg – a professional make-up showroom that will cater to professional make-up artists. The new showroom will be situated in the Aston Manor Shopping Centre in Aston Manor, Kempton Park.
Cindy Brits, distributor of MUD products on the Johannesburg East Rand, says: “The launch of the Johannesburg showroom will give women the opportunity to experience this new and exciting professional range, while learning different techniques on how to apply their make-up like a professional. MUD International is a school by make-up artists, for make-up artists and the products are made for the professional make-up artist as well as the public consumer looking for a top-end product.”
“The MUD showroom in Johannesburg will host a number of programs and courses for professionals as well as workshops for the novice wanting to improve their skill level or technique. During the training programmes, students will learn by doing make-up in an inspiring, supportive environment. All of the teachers draw upon at least five years of experience in a diverse range of make-up fields, so will be able to assist students in any path the decide to choose,” says Brits.
She notes that approved MUD Showrooms work in association with the Centurion Academy, which is a Somatology Training Institution registered at the department of higher education.
Aside from the training programmes, MUD also specialises in bridal make-up and other special occasions that may require the expertise of a professional make-up artist. “We will be able to assist brides on their special day, giving them the peace of mind that their make-up is done by a trained professional with top quality MUD products. This will ensure that the make-up is premium photographic and high pigment concentration for the right colour to suit the bride’s skin type,” says Brits.
A mini-workshop on the products and their application will be hosted at the launch of the new MUD showroom, with all products available at wholesale prices to professionals on the day. The first workshop for trade professionals will be held on 7 August from 9:00am to 12:30pm and the second will run from 1:00pm to 4:30pm on the same day.
The MUD showroom will also host well-known Los Angeles make-up artist, Sean Conklin, on 4 September 2013. Conklin will be facilitating specific workshops for trade professionals on both soft and dramatic bridal make-up, along with a workshop on photographic shoot make-up. Tickets will be available on iTicket, with both sessions costing R750 per person. The workshops will run from 9:00am to 1:00pm and 2:00pm to 5:00pm. On the same day a cocktail event will be held at the MUD showroom from 4:00pm until 6:30pm in order for salon owners and professionals to visit the showroom and talk to Sean about his special make-up secrets. Tickets to the cocktail event will cost R350 per person, which will include refreshments, champagne, snacks and a goodie bag.
