Beauty Talk with a Beauty Editor: Lerato Seuoe

Lerato is one of the most fun and expressive people I know, which is why her company is always such a joy. With a big heart and a hearty laugh, she’s the friend every girl wishes they had. She is the beauty editor at True Love Magazine and her makeup skills are always on point – we reckon she gets it from her mama.  

TMP: What’s the best thing about your job?

L: I genuinely enjoy shooting, seeing a concept come to life is so gratifying. The free beauty goodies don’t hurt though lol.  

TMP: Anything you’d change?

L: I do love trying out new products but it sucks when they don’t live up to the hype.  

TMP: What’s your go-to foundation right now?

L:  My top two are MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid Foundation NC 44.5 and BlackUp’s Full Coverage Cream Foundation HC05/06.  

TMP: And lipstick?

L: Growing up with thick lips traumatized me so much wearing bold lip colours scares me. I opt for nudes, here are my top 3: Revlon Matte Ultra HD Matte Colour in HD Seduction; Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Safe Word and Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur in NO 1 Nude.

 TMP: If you were to take 3 beauty products to the desert what would they be?

L: Lip balm, Sunscreen and a brow kit  

TMP: Most impressive product in 2016?

L: Urban Decay Naked Palettes, I am obsessed with them!  

TMP: Biggest beauty myth?

L: Stretchmark lotions/oils/creams, still haven’t found one that works, sadly.
