Beauty Tips : Kamogelo Makokwane
 London based yet truly proudly South African blogger Kamo Mafokwane is carving a niche for herself in the super-competitive luxury goods blogosphere. With a degree from the prestigious London College of Fashion in hand she is ready to conquer the world. Kamo can be considered as the South African version of Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty fame or British blogger Claire Channelle. Luxury beauty and fashion blogging is a rarity in South Africa and Kamo stands out because of the unique lane she’s etching for her self in this regard. Our girl uses products that we can only dream about a la La Mer but that should not act as a deterrent. Instead be wise to bookmark her suggestions so that you can refer to them at a later stage when you are ready to purchase investment beauty products. Kamo is as royal and exclusive as the name of her blog suggests (Will Kate Lady is the name of her blog) therefore we would be remiss to not include her in this series and we hope that you guys enjoy her interview.
