Minnie Dlamini Jones has launched her skincare range called MD.
Dlamini Jones rose to stardom when she auditioned for Live Amp and now 10 years later she has launched a skincare range.
She joins Bongani Bingwa to talk about why she decided to launch a skincare range and how she started in the industry.
I got into the business and I realised that I needed to earn my stripes and figure out exactly what I liked.— Minnie Dlamini Jones, Founder - MD Skincare
Dlamini- Jones says she made her first million when she was 20 years old after she became the face of Legit.
I signed on to become the face of Legit, I got my own range and then I became a millionaire and at 21 it was all gone. I blew it and I can't even tell you what I bought. It was the biggest pay cheque I had ever received in my life and my financial education was terrible and I had no one there guiding me.— Minnie Dlamini Jones, Founder - MD Skincare
MD was something that I realised that I needed to do because you go into the business and the first thing you try to land outside of your job is that endorsement deal. I always wanted to go into the beauty industry and land an endorsement deal and it just didn't happen.— Minnie Dlamini Jones, Founder - MD Skincare
She says she then realised that she has built up a social media following and people are interested in what she has to do.
I decided to forget the endorsements and I created my own skincare range.— Minnie Dlamini Jones, Founder - MD Skincare
