Make-up artist, Tha Bang is slated to host a one of a kind event. The event, dubbed Back to Basic Make-up is scheduled to take place on Saturday at the Touch-Up Bar in Gaborone.
Tickets for the event are P400, inclusive of snacks and Mimosa’s. For those who wish to know more about the art of make-up, as well as self-appreciation, this event is perfect for them. Tha Bang, born Thabang Mochotlhi explains that the event was inspired by the feedback that he has been getting from his clients, who are eager to get more out of him. He also says that he has always dreamt about putting together an event of this nature.
“As a young businessman you always wonder and have a lot of ‘what ifs,’ what if people don’t like what I am offering. But I sat down, did my maths, and I decided that I must make it happen,” he explains noting that the support has been humbling. He also says his event is different in the sense that in most of the master classes, the audience sits there and listens, but that his will be totally different.
“I am a people’s person, and I want to hear what the audience has to say. I want them to come with their make-up bags to see what we can do to switch things up,” he explains. Tha Bang further highlights that his company is a home for everyone, both men and women, the young ones, and that the event is targeting everyone who falls into that target market.
“I more than teach art, I also teach self-appreciation because for you to accept the beautiful results you get from make-up, you also need to appreciate who you are without it. We will share experiences about how make-up has changed their life, and how they can improve it,” he says. He is hoping that the event will be annual. Tha Bang has previously worked for Mac Cosmetics.
