Jacaranda FM in parternership with internationally acclaimed make up artist Hrush Achemyan better known as Style By Hrush hosted The Ultimate Show at Monte Casino in Johannesburg, to celebrate Women’s Day.
Women from across the province attended the event in hope of learning how to do their own make up. Hrush who began her career from doing make up in her bedroom to making up the faces of beauty idols like Kim Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Leona Lewis and Giuliana Rancic amongst others has been touring across the world giving make up master classes to aspiring make up artists and women who want to learn how to beautify themselves.
The event which is the first of its kind in South Africa started an hour later than it was supposed to. With attendees taking to social media to voice out their dissatisfactions . “At The Ultimate Show at Monte Casino. We’ve paid R2800, VIP R4900 , and we waited for 50 minutes for Hrush to get on stage. Ridiculous, “ says Awande Dlamini on Twitter .
Hrush used a model for four hours with only one break in between to illustrate how to get the perfect brow to the perfect glow.
Her lack of energy when talking took away the “show” from the ultimate. The only entertainment that was there were the Zulu dancers who opened the show and the rest of the 4 hours was just Hrush talking through what she was doing .
The much followed make up artist, with more than 2 million followers on Instagram, shared some of her secrets with the crowd . “My secret is knowing my flaws. Also beauty is a science, the better you look, the happier you feel so beauty is a tool to success.”
Attendees were also given the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Hrush which was facilitated by Bonang Matheba who was the MC of the show .
