Black Is Beautiful with Mata

14 Sep 2019

The 20-year-old make-up artist shaking up the industry shares her tips and tricks and the story of her journey.

For centuries, black bodies have been a battleground – and since its inception, the beauty industry has failed to cater to the needs of black women.

Today we celebrate a new era with make-up brands finally stepping up to the palette.

Putting the colour back in to mainstream beauty is Mata, make-up artist to Skepta, Stormzy and IAMDDB.

She is the perfect guide, blending technique with the topical in a live make-up tutorial.

Hosted by presenter, DJ and model Emerald Rose Lewis.

This event is presented in association with Indaba X.
