This past Sunday, September 10, 2023, at the Activate Body Therapy Health Club in Kampala, the fifth iteration of the highly sought Mona Masterclass, a beauty extravaganza that every makeup fan dreams of attending, came to a dazzling close.
A new generation of cosmetics enthusiasts emerged in a stunning exhibition of talent and artistry, all taught by Mona and prepared to rule the beauty industry.
This masterclass, which lasted for two exciting days, was very different from the conventional YouTube beauty instructions.

The excited students set out on an illuminating trip through a wide range of elevating sessions that addressed every aspect of beauty, from the finer points of skincare to the most unique and advanced makeup methods.

These were the kinds of insider information that are only shared by experts in the field.
Students were instructed by a prominent group of facilitators, including Monalisa Umutoni, who helped them not only hone their skills but also discover how to transform their passion into a successful business. Bhavya Kalsi, in particular, dug into the subtleties of personal branding and social media marketing, giving these aspiring artists the skills they need to succeed in the digital age.
Thanks to Vicland, the champagne was flowing, and the students were enjoying themselves while studying.

Imagine attending a small class of 50 cosmetics enthusiasts who are all eagerly soaking up every nugget of knowledge from these great teachers. Their creative blank slate?

The students were able to put their newly acquired talents to use on the beautiful faces of models Nkwanzi and Bhavya, who kindly provided their faces as a canvas for the students to work on.
There is more, though.
Participants received more than simply a wealth of new information and insider advice.
They didn’t; instead, they took home a goodie bag filled to the brim with luxurious beauty goodies.
Among these coveted items were the recently released Mona Magic Mist, a collection of premium brushes, opulent goods from Zaron Cosmetics, a skincare line from Nigeria, Bio Balance essentials, the irresistibly stylish Dapper by Rach lipsticks, and chic Khwezi Beauty headbands, to name a few.
These lucky attendees undoubtedly left with their hearts full of beautiful finds and bags brimming with goodies.

As students began skin testing with Bio Balance on the first day, it was all about putting the theory into practice and making sure they had a strong foundation in skincare, which is essential for any makeup artist.

Day two saw the captivating world of eyes in the limelight. Students gained knowledge of the complex methods that can effortlessly change a daylight appearance into a seductive evening masterpiece.
Later that day, Beefeater Pink Gin provided sponsorship for the cocktail celebration.
The Mona Masterclass is more than simply a gathering; it’s a life-changing experience that equips participants with the abilities, information, and goods needed to up their game in the world of beauty.

These recently graduated makeup artists are now prepared to make their mark in the realm of elegance and allure since they have the equivalent of a VIP backstage pass in the beauty industry.

About Monalisa Umutoni
When Mona was a little child, she used to play with her mother’s cosmetics, which eventually led to her becoming a makeup artist.
Little did Mona realize that her future profession in beauty would be shaped by this event.
Mona started practicing with friends and family members after learning about YouTube tutorials when she was a college student.
Soon after, she began her beauty shoots, and Instagram reacted positively right away.
Mona made the decision to pursue her love as a full-time career after becoming more and more well-known.
She started out as a freelance makeup artist in 2015, and as her clientele grew, so did her range of prospects.

Mona established up her first makeup studio in 2016, the first of its type in Uganda, when she realized she needed more room and supplies to handle the growing demand.
With 10 females on her team today, all of whom have had professional makeup training, Mona’s team is a flourishing business with two locations.
