Dedicated to supporting and empowering local business owners as well as well known brands we have curated the perfect exhibitors to entice any beauty lover.

The highlight of this years’ expo is the addition of Raine Tauber as the host of our Make up Master classes. Raine Tauber is an elite international makeup artist currently based in South Africa with more than 17 years professional experience. Raine’s career journey is a story about being at the right place at the right time. “My mother was in the film/fashion industry and I used to assist her on set when I was a teenager.” Through assisting her mom, Raine met and connected with a few photographers. “One day a make-up artist called in sick, and a photographer called me to fill in as he was desperate. From then I knew this was what I wanted to do.”17 years later and she is creating makeup for Paris, London and Milan fashions weeks and has headed up the local fashion week makeup teams for the past 10 years. She has worked on some of the most celebrated runway shows such as John Galliano and Lanvin, on some of the most renowned faces such as Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid. Raine has also had the honour of working for international publications such as i-D magazine as well as the local big hitters such as Cosmo, Elle and Marie Claire.

“ I like to work with the designer’s influences in mind and think about who the man or woman is that I am designing this look for. I enjoy looking to nature and science for inspiration more than to existing make up/fashion images.” Raine says of her creative process.

Make up Workshop hosted by Glamore Cosmetics

A few weeks ago I attended the Starting Fresh Make-up workshop hosted by Glamore Cosmetics. They host regular Make-up Workshops to help you improve that facebeat if you are still struggling between understanding the differences between baking a cake and baking your face 🙂 . I was the model for the morning session and happily let MUA Terri Tomset(pictured above) have her way with me. The class was very intimate with only 6 attendees(max 10 per session) you can feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

The sessions are 3 hours each giving you ample time to ask all the questions you may have. You can purchase your tickets(R499) for the make up workshop directly from their website


On arrival you are served with coffee,tea and scrumptious biscuits . On your desk you will find your goody bag to the value of R1000. I would advise to take your own brushes along with you but if you are not sure or don’t know which brushes to take along, they do have brushes available for you to purchase on the day. The item I loved the most in the goody bags are the lashes.The goody bag is filled with skincare,cosmetics and make up tools and accessories.

As I was the model for my session, I was not physically engaged in the session but was witness to the transformation that each attendee went through in that few hours and.I was amazed. I also got to meet the GlossGuruBlog(Lauren) and I must say wow even more beautiful on person!

These make up workshops are more suited to your beginner/ transitioning to intermediate make up user. In this class you will learn every technique you need to slay that facebeat, from prepping the skin to applying false lashes.

My favourite part of the make up workshop was getting to see how the products work with my skin without having to physically purchase it, my favourite product in their range was definitely the foundation, a full coverage foundation with the ability to still look uber natural.

Although they do touch on contouring in the make up workshop. I would have loved if they could have gone a bit more in detail. They could include how to determine your face shape and how to contour for each shape.

If you want to up your make up game, I will recommend for you to attend one of their sessions. Their next session takes place on the 27.04.2019. If you would like to learn more about the brand or their make-up workshops, you can pull through to our Mini Expo .

They will be exhibiting and having special offers on their newly launched Royal Collection.
