I do not mind a proposal in a maize garden

 

Claudine Mwangachuchu Make-up artist

Between my phone and my laptop, it would be easier for me to give up…

My laptop.  My phone has become a part of my life. You want a book? My phone has them; want to watch a movie, I have an app for that. I want to work out, I can monitor that how many kilometres I have walked.

When I read the newspaper (or a magazine), the first section I flip to is…

The health and beauty section for obvious reasons. I need to be updated on the current beauty trends from my favourite beauty brands.

The most famous person I have met has been…

The president of Rwanda, H.E Paul Kagame and the first daughter, Ange Kagame.

As a make-up artist, a dream client for me would have to be…

American singer and former destiny’s child member, Kelly Rowland.

In my opinion, the worst way for someone to propose…

People propose in any way they think is best. I would say the motive behind the proposal is what matters. If a man thinks he is doing you a favour by asking you to marry him, then that makes the proposal useless.  I do not care if you propose to me in a maize field, if it is sincere and true, then that is the best.

The most extravagant item on my wedding mood board is…

My wedding dress and bands. The dress design, the details and the fabric are what makes it expensive. Also, on weddings, you can go with a budget but because I feel like my dress is a big part of my day, I am open to anything.  I do not want to limit myself. I also think I am very particular in what I want. I do not wear a lot of jewellery, so I want good pieces that will stand out.

The one thing I have been putting on hold for far too long that I need to do is…

Going back to school. I really need to get around to doing it very soon.

The kindest thing anyone has ever done for me was…

There are so many favours that people have done for me. But someone helping me when I was broke, and I did not have to ask; that was the highlight.

The hardest thing about bridal makeup is…

 

Meeting different people with different views and taste in make-up. Sometimes, there are trust issues and some clients can be control freaks. But I understand there is too much that goes on in the mind of a bride.

My wedding play list is…

I cannot  decide on one song. But there are two songs that I want on that playlist, although they are in Swahili. Otile Brown & Sanaipei Tande’s Chaguo La Moyo and Nyashinski’s – Malaika…
