5-Minute Beauty Confessions with Simone Goddard

This week we speak to #WonderfulWoman Simone Goddard, beauty salon owner and head therapist at Arch Eyebrow & Beauty bar, photographer, makeup artist and Hedgehog lover. She lives in Port Elizabeth.

Today she shares her 5-Minute Beauty Confessions with The Beauty Studio Team.

1.What does beauty mean to you?

I believe that beauty shines from the inside out. If you have a beautiful heart and soul, then you will always exude beauty.

2.What’s one of the best beauty products you’ve ever used and why?

Kryolan foundation, it provides the perfect amount of coverage and lasts all day without budging.

3.How has COVID and lockdown affected your beauty regime ?

Wearing a mask has taught me to wear less makeup, and given my skin a much needed break and room to breathe.

4.What’s your biggest strength?

I pride myself in always listening to what other people have to say, and providing a safe space for people to confide in me with their thoughts and feelings.

5.What’s a cause that is important to you?

I’m a big animal lover, and I’m especially passionate about hedgehogs and hedgehog rescue.

6.What are the 3 things you can’t live without?

Talking to God, spending quality time with my family, and my business.

7.How would you define yourself in three words?

Strong-willed, soft-hearted and passionate

8.What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

My parents always told me to follow my heart and study something that I was passionate about, rather than studying something just for the sake of building a career that meant nothing to me.

9.What’s the last bit of self-care you performed?

I took the day off of work, went for a pedicure and baked a malva pudding for my boyfriend and I.

10.What does a successful 2021 look like to you?

At the end of 2021, I want to look back knowing that I’ve done my best with the situations that I was handed. I want to build stronger relationships with those that I hold dear to me, I want to expand my business and spend more time taking care of my own needs.

11. Would you like to nominate a wonderful woman and why?

I’d love to nominate Mika Bithell – a wonderfully confident woman who recently left her job to follow her passion and start her own business.
