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 makeup artists offering advice 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 reused. We have always been cruelty free and one of our goals is to be 100% vegan-friendly by the end of 2022 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. Consider changing brands. Choose Creative Glamour . . . we are the make-up artists choice!
