Local Influencer Mihlali Ndamase is Starring in a Web Series with Maybelline

From cover star to screen queen!

YouTuber and influencer Mihlali Ndamase is one busy woman. The former COSMO cover star has now partnered up with global brand Maybelline New York to star in a pan-African web series. No, we don’t know where she finds the time either!

Mihlali in the Cities

On 8 March – which happens to be International Women’s Day – the web series Makeup in the Cities, Africa, began airing on YouTube. It features top African personalities, vloggers, influencers and makeup artists who candidly discuss all things beauty and provide a constant stream of inspiration. Mihlali is the first South African to be featured in the series, with two more – who’s identities are being kept secret RN– being added to the cast at a later stage. The show takes on a talk-show format and features relatable beauty content that inspires consumers and enables them to achieve the looks they want.

In the first episode starring Mihlali, which aired last week, she showed viewers her go-to look and her makeup essentials. These included items such as the Maybelline Fit Me! foundation, SuperStay Primer, Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer and SuperStay Matte Ink liquid lipstick. We stan these product picks!

When asked about how she feels to be one of three South African beauty influencers to be chosen to take part in Makeup in the Cities, Africa, Mihlali said: ‘I really enjoyed taking part in the web series, and exchanging my views and experiences with influencers from other countries who shared my love for makeup. I’m constantly inspired by Maybelline’s products; it’s definitely one of my go-to brands when it comes to putting my latest looks together.’

And here is her web series debut:

Mihlali will be appearing in two more episodes, which can be watched on the Maybelline NY Africa YouTube channel. We can’t wait to hear what beauty advice and insights she serves us with next.
