About Creative Glamour
Our Story began in 2009 when one of South Africa’s top award-winning makeup artists – Cecilia Grobler decided to start a cosmetic brand. As many other brands this one started as a small business running from home, importing and reselling products in her free time. Working hard and being dedicated she saved up as much as she could to turn her sideline hustle into a sustainable business. Her vision was to make a positive impact in the make-up industry and formulate exceptional products with top quality ingredients for all professional make-up artists to give exquisite and reliable results when used on any television, film and theater productions , but soon after doing this she realised even with the vast amount of products that she had to offer it seemed overwhelming to the everyday makeup wearer. However, with our qualified team of make up artists offering advise and assistance they would be able to achieve these professional results at home.
Most of Creative Glamour’s colour cosmetic range is locally produced and we strives to support local suppliers all the time. From ingredients, packaging, labeling and boxing, to the final product. It is for this reason that we have always endeavored to vendor our products at an economically competitive rate. Our goal is to manufacture all our colour cosmetics here in SA and only import our accessory line until one day we can even expand this section. Our vision is to grow, empower and inspire all South African’s to also support local. We are proud to be a South African cosmetic brand that is one of high caliber with ethical standards.
At Creative Glamour, we aim to provide make-up artists the opportunity to generate an additional income by becoming a stockist or joining our loyalty program. Education is of great importance to us. We provide cost effective products to makeup colleges that make it possible to give their students more possibilities when building up their kits. We provide specialised product training to each and every makeup/beauty college ,that we supply. We ensure our clients get fantastic service as our in house makeup artists providing expert advice to all our customers.
Not only do we strive to deliver high quality products, but we do it with mother nature in mind. We have many refillable packaging options that can be re-used. We have always been cruelty free and one of our goals is to be 100% vegan-friendly by the end of 2020 and comply with BWC standards. We have a paramount and unimpeachable approach to our service and delivery of our products.
Alongside, more than 50 make-up colleges, some of South Africa’s top make-up and visual effects artists trust our products in all aspects of their work. We want to invite and encourage you to do the same. By supporting our local brand, you allow us to support more local companies and artists which in turn leads to improving South Africa’s economy.

Cecilia (Owner of Creative Glamour)
Cecilia has been in the industry since 2005 and is internationally qualified in make-up artistry by ITEC, CIDESCO, IPTI and City and Guilds. After successfully qualifying at College, she went on to lecture make-up artistry and prosthetics for 5 years. Cecilia was prompted to further enhance her skills and decided to study hairdressing on a part-time basis. During this period she started her dedicated service in the Film and TV industry at the public broadcaster, SABC. She worked as a makeup artist and hair stylist at the news studios of SABC 1, 2 and 3 and on shows like Focus and Interface. To further expand her horizons in 2010 she moved on to doing make-up and hair for eTV’s News studios. Seven years later, as her time is more limited, she still works on eNuus. She has also been part of the makeup crew on a few films and/or television productions. Cecilia also has an extensive list of music videos and commercials accredited to her. Outside of the TV and Film industry, her works include amongst others photo shoots for Huisgenoot and Bona magazine. Fashion shows for ‘Nokia N Series – Face of Africa’ and ‘Steel Model of the Year 2001 and One time airlines fashion show is also under her belt.
I have been a makeup artist since 2013. I graduated from face to face top of my class and was awarded student of the year. I always strive for perfection in making my clients look their absolute best as my work caries my name. I believe that makeup comes down to talent instead of product and I push myself to try and be the best artist in the room. I have also worked on various TV productions and music videos like KykNet Beleef jou wereld in Afrikaans; Musiek vir die agtergrond; Top 20(Creative Glamour); Anais – Druppletjies(Music Video).
I have been doing make-up since 2008 and have received formal training and certification in this area. As a makeup artist I am able to create the look you desire whether it is natural, fresh and "barely there" makeup or a more classy, sophisticated look as well as glamorous, bold and trendy! Using high-quality makeup is a must and I am constantly updating and adding to my makeup collection for your event needs.
