Some people discover their talent and passion at a later stage in their lives, while others know immediately.

Zaney Beukes (11) realized at a very early age that she loves make-up and the power it has to make women feel confident and powerful. In spite of her tender age, she has established herself as a make-up artist in the harbour town.

This soft-spoken young lady says that her mother, Natalie, sparked her interest in make-up. “I used to watch my mom do her make-up and I loved the effect – how she looked after applying it.”

Beukes says that she acquired her make-up skills by watching her mother and make-up tutorials online. “I always practiced on family members and I had the opportunity last year to attend make-up classes hosted by Hannah Nangula. It was a fun experience and I got to learn so much more about make-up.”

She adds that she has already done make-up for a number of clients. “Most of my clients so far are genuinely surprised that I am this young.”

Tool

“For many women, make-up is a tool to make them feel more beautiful and powerful, but I see it as a tool that simply enhances your inner beauty.”

Beukes says that she hopes to one day do make-up professionally. “I would love to go to beauty school and explore more about what there is to know about make-up as well as hairstyling.

“My motivation is definitely my mother. She always tells me to never give up. She always reminds me that this is my passion and this is what I can do.”

Zaney motivates other young girls and boys to never give up on themselves. “It is always your choice to decide what you want to become and what you want to do with your life. Always remember that practice makes perfect.”

Zaney also makes her own lip balm that she sells to customers.

Her mother says that she encourages her daughters to always aim high and follow their dreams. “There’s a quote that says ‘don't aim to break the glass ceiling; aim to shatter it’, but I always remind them that there is no ceiling.”

Natalie says that she is very strict when it comes to Zaney maintaining a certain average at school. “She gets to follow and work on her passion, but at the same time I remind her that her academics need to be a priority.

“I always tell my girls that to dream big – bigger than the perceptions and standards placed by the people around us. The future is female, there is no doubt about it!”
