Bonnie Mbuli spills the secret to her flawless skin
Actress, businesswoman and author Bonnie Mbuli added beauty mogul to her CV when she successfully launched a make-up collaboration with Yardley London earlier this month.
The Bonnie x Yardley collection includes powders, foundations, lipsticks, eyeliners and nail polishes.
Mbuli says she hopes the range, which is primarily aimed at those with dark skin tones, will inspire girls to love and accept themselves.
“What I really love about this collaboration is that it says to girls, ‘the way that you are is perfect, you don’t have to be anything different for somebody to see beauty in you or to see something special in you’,” she explains.
We asked the celebrity to share her skincare secrets with us, and pinpoint her favourite make-up trend.
“I have a three-step programme where I first cleanse my skin, then put on a moisturiser and then sunscreen," says Mbuli of her skincare routine.
I know a lot of black women who don’t think they need sunscreen, but it is very importantBonnie Mbuli
“I know a lot of black women who don’t think they need sunscreen, but it is very important because our skins are prone to pigmentation, and if you’re burnt by the sun it gets really tough to remove the pigmentation."
When it comes to make-up, Mbuli is currently enjoying the graphic eye trend. "I love using liquid eyeliner to play with my eyes or to draw little cute shapes around them," she says.
“I also just love a red lip; it always perks you up and gets you into an exciting mood.”
