5-Minute Beauty Confessions with Maduvha Madima

This week we profile Maduvha Madima, actress, singer, solo mom and image consultant. She’s recently released her new single, Nyarara, recorded with the late and brilliant, Oliver Mtukudzi. Today she shares her ideas of what beauty means to her in this week’s 5-minute beauty confessions.

1. What’s keeps you busy during the day?

Work, work and more work. The new release of the song is going very well and my time is spent between the studio, and running my business. I’m also mother to a 9-year old daughter and that’s my priority. I am very blessed.

2. Where do you live, work and play?

I live in the north of Johannesburg and work close to home. Why would I want to spend time commuting in traffic when I could be spending it with my daughter?  Life, at the moment, is a whirlwind of kiddies parties, kiddie restaurants and spending time with my peers.

For fun I love driving out into nature – Magaliesburg, Harties and Muldersdrift are my little pieces of heaven. Oh, and I also am a sucker for a good spa!

3. What does beauty mean to you?

Beauty, as an idea or concept, as been severly distorted by society. Beauty is an inside job… when your inner life is doing well – a positive mind, enough exercise water & sleep – then you exude outer beauty… Glowing skin, a radiant smile and a relaxed face… Glowing skin, a radiant smile and a relaxed face. That’s what beauty is for me.

4. What are 3 of your favourite beauty products that you can’t live without?

My top 3 beauty essentials I can’t do without are:

  1. Sunscreen
  2. Moisturiser
  3. Lipbalm

5. What does a successful 2020 look like to you?

A successful 2020 for me starts at home. If there is happiness and harmony at home, I will have a beautiful 2020. This helps me translate success to other areas of my life – work, finanes, my acting, my music. I’ve worked really hard the last couple of years and laid a solid foundation – it’s now harvest time for me.
