South Africa has been through the most this year. And while many of it has been disheartening, such as the #AmINext movement, there have been some standout moments that have made us well up with pride. One of them was when the Boks nabbed the Web Ellis Cup by winning the Rugby World Cup in Japan last month. And last night marked another proud 2019 moment for Mzansi as Miss SA – the elegant AF Zozibini Tunzi – was crowned Miss Universe 2019, and the nation couldn’t be prouder.
Introducing Zozi Tunzi (but you can call her Miss Universe)
In August – on Women’s Day, to be precise – #Zozi was crowned Miss South Africa, and she has now gone on to win the coveted international title of Miss Universe. Only two years ago, #SouthAfrican beauty Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters also won the title, so it’s safe to say that we are home to some of the world’s most beautiful women (hey, the results don’t lie)
The makeup look that she wore on stage last night was the perfect mix of glam and understated, as she chose a colour palette that perfectly complemented her complexion. A bold brow, long lashes, flawless skin and a nude glossy lip *clearly* made for a winning beauty combination.
We can’t wait to see what she will be getting up to during her one year reign, and just as excited to see the makeup looks she’ll be rocking over the next 12 months. Strap in for the ride!
