Hollywood isn’t the only place where fame can make a celebrity a little bit of a fortune through being the face of a brand, South African celebs are also jumping onto the bandwagon and beauty brands are loving them because our girls are doing good!
We give you a list of South African celebs who have have made bank through beauty, just in case you hadn’t known.
Bonang Matheba for Revlon
We couldn’t have a celebrity endorsements list and not include “Your girl, B”.
With a twitter following of nearly 2 million, Bonang is the go-to girl for brands looking to up their profile by putting a celebrity face behind their brand. That’s why few were surprised Revlon teamed up with SA’s queen of television and radio to make her the brand’s South African ambassador.
Joining the likes of Olivia Wilde, Halle Berry and Ciara as an ambassador for the brand shows Bonang’s star power has the ability to reach beyond borders. While Revlon has yet to make her a global ambassador, we can’t help but be happy for our girl.
Liesl Laurie for Vichy
While having beauty and brains may be part of the criteria to win the title of Miss South Africa, former Miss SA Liesl Laurie’s business sense after having relinquished her crown has led her to even more success.
Vichy could not help but fall in love with the beauty that is Liesl when searching for a new global brand ambassador and with her job as the new face of Vichy, Liesl will soon be making heads turn beyond our borders as her campaigns for the brand will be seen in Brazil and the US, as well as in her country.
Nomzamo Mbatha for Neutrogena
Television’s sweetheart stole our hearts once again when we heard she had been picked by skincare brand Neutrogena to be the new face of their brand.
Beautiful skin and a perfect smile might have won over the brand but Nomzamo’s flawless skin definitely worked to her favour in bagging this deal.
Jessica Nkosi for Clinique
Isibaya sure knows how to churn out the beauties.
On the heels of Nomzamo’s success in landing her Neutrogena deal, Jessica Nkosi proved that Clinique could also love themselves a Zulu girl through landing her endorsement with the beauty brand.
Clean, beautiful skin had never looked as good as when Jessica became face of the brand as a global ambassador.
