“I believe that all women are pretty without make-up – but with the right make-up, can be pretty powerful.” BOBBI BROWN
The strength of feminine beauty is that it comes in all shapes and forms and isn’t restricted to one defining characteristic. A powerful woman is a woman who is able to take the best components of humanity – that is to love, to protect, to care, and to share – and apply it in her everyday life.
“In celebration of this power, we have brought together a handful of beautifully inspiring women to join our All Access Beauty campaign – a destination shop for every woman’s beauty needs,” says Terry Dale, Head of Marketing at Retailability. “These women understand the true meaning of beauty. It isn’t just something you carry on the outside; it’s an attitude that empowers you from within. Her make-up must-haves, her carefully selected choice of fragrance, and her nourishing skincare routine are all tools that she uses to help her achieve this feeling of beauty, giving her the confidence, she needs coupled with the looks she loves.”
From irresistible fragrances to effective, affordable skincare, the latest make-up trends, and the hottest local and international products to hit the shelves… All Access Beauty has every woman, and every skin type, covered!

Jessica van Heerden believes that make-up is about enhancing what you already have and not concealing your natural beauty. She is a firm believer in being your true self and not hiding behind filters and fake stories. She proudly uses her social media profile to do exactly that and hopes to inspire her followers to do the same. Jessica won’t leave home without her Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream. She uses it to moisturise and soften her cuticles and lips, and even on her brows before applying make-up.

As former Mrs. SA and Mrs. World 2016, Candice is always in the know when it comes to the latest beauty products and has used her platform to help educate and uplift those around her.
