I was introduced to MUD in 2013 and it has been a blessing to see the brand grow and excel to new heights in South Africa, regardless of a very competitive industry. Brenda’s passion is contagious and beautiful to witness.

I especially love the MUD brand because of its superior quality & educated approach to beauty! And what an added bonus to also be able to stock & offer it to our clients in remote areas as well.

Excited to see what the future holds for this fabulous range!

My journey to become a make-up artist started two years ago. During that time I’ve tried different paths, soon to realise it’s not my path. After a lot of praying, hoping and believing my path crossed with MUD School & Noni Ubuntu Dubazana! Wow! What an amazing woman, lecturer, role model and a real asset to MUD!

You’ve created a safe haven where I could make mistakes and learn, risk, be creative and not once did you not believe in me! I was told that I might be too analytical for make-up, but you’ve turned that around for me by saying “analytical people sometimes are the most creative one’s”.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and all your support! I’m looking forward to my new journey as a Make-up Artist after learning from the best. I salute you!

My journey of becoming a make-up artist through MUD is definitely worth sharing. First of all, I will definitely recommend the MUD Courses & their products to anyone who is looking to pursue a career as a make-up artist or even just wanting to know more about make-up. I attended three courses namely, Beauty Essentials (Level I), Airbrush & the Bridal Make-up Course over a 4 week period in January/February 2020. I can say with the uttermost honesty that this is so worth it.

Wow!!! I never realised how much there is to learn and MUD makes it their priority to teach you EVERYTHING there is to know about make-up and the industry. Saying this, they definitely live up to their tradition of an “educated approach to make-up”. I fell in love with their products and not to mention the incredible quality, flawless application and radiantly accurate colour. It made it so easy for us to work & learn with during our training. They are so professional, loving & most important of all, they are so supportive – even till this day. We had the best lecturers ever! They were very patient and encouraged us to be the best possible make-up artist that one can possibly be.

A HUGE thank you to Brenda & her team for all your love & support. I will forever be grateful for everything that you have done for me as a make-up artist. 💄❤️

Being part of the MUD school and completing my level 2 certificate was such an incredible journey. Not only did it give me the confidence to use all different make-up techniques but it also allowed me to get creative in ways I never had before. Not only that, but since using MUD products on others and myself I will not go back.

Definitely the best make-up out there.

Although being a qualified MUA, I also love going into the studio for special events and getting my make-up done. I always walk out feeling beautiful and confident. MUD cosmetics, the MUD school and the MUD team are one of kind – incredible.

I am a proud MUD user personally as well as professionally for the past 7 years.

The product itself has never disappointed me in my work as a makeup artist. It delivers amazingly when it comes to the lasting effect during a wedding day and on camera, it looks stunning. The product is made of the highest quality, the pigment is strong and it lasts a long time. There are no flashbacks and in fact, it looks flawless on camera and film. I only use MUD and no other professional product because MUD offers everything I need. Clients are also happy with the outcome and they also then buy the product for themselves.

Furthermore, the quality of staff that is trained and efficient when I order products is exceptional. Whenever I walk into a MUD Studio whether it be in Brooklyn or Sandton I am always greeted in a friendly manner and nothing is too much trouble for them. The owner of MUD, Brenda Botha, values her staff and clients and her ethical business practices draws me to the company.

As a mua, MUD has always been my go to brand. I know the quality is always consistent and the pigments are strong, that saves on application time. All the products are easy to use and fun to play around with. I’ve always had a pleasant experience with the service at MUDSA, they are professional and friendly.

I highly recommend MUD to any mua.

I have personally been using MUD for the last 7 or so years and as a salon been stocking it for as long! I absolutely love the MUD mascara, eyeshadows, pencils – but my absolute favourite product is lucky lipstick – it’s my signature – without my lucky lips I feel naked! Stays on all day and I feel gorgeous with my red lips!

On the whole love all my MUD make-up!

Professional Make-up Artist

“I did the make-up course with Brenda Botha in December 2012 and I absolutely loved it!! I have been a make-up artist for 4 years and felt that I needed a refresher course. The course met all of my expectations and taught me so much more about make-up and techniques.

Brenda’s way of teaching is easy to understand and the practical sessions are hands-on. She never left me for a second during the practicals which is very helpful in the learning process. After the course, I felt more confident in my new techniques and the brides that I did make-up for were very pleased with the product. MUD make-up itself is awesome to work with, it makes a young bride and a more mature lady look incredible and it is a dream to work with.

I am extremely happy with the experience, service and products of MUD and I am looking forward to a lifelong partnership together. Thank you, Brenda.”
