Her life’s aim is to bring out the beauty of each individual who will come to her, may it be through sessions of MakeUp, Nail Art, Full Body Care or Training. Dominique Raya is such a passionate and so serious about healthy and trustworthy Make-Up products that she has taken the challenge to create her own Cosmetic brand from a Haute Couture Make Up manufacturer, her own MakeUp Studio and Institute. She is set to bring sublimation to Mauritian women and men with her France made products and her French touch. She is living her dream, but to reach here Dominique had to learn, work and invest for years. Debuts Dominique, since her adolescence, is attracted to the beauty, sophistication and Make-Up world. But she attests “I sought in vain in my little country, to satisfy these desires of beauty and sophistication. So, as working in the tourism field opens to loads of traveling opportunities, my choice was made up.” After studies at the l’École Hôtelière Sir Gaëtan Duval, she started 56

her professional life working in the biggest palaces of the country before going to discover her favourite Latin America and Europe, where she finally got inspired to get back to her first love which is Make-Up. “I finally found in Paris the most adequate training in artistic Make-Up that I had always dreamed of. I improved my skills there”. Improving her hidden skills Joining the SLA Académie de Paris, in 2011, was the best choice she made. She enrolled for a full year course. Under close guidance of the trainers, she was exposed to the A to Z techniques in Make-Up. “It was a complete training that started from the simplest ways of Make-Up techniques, passing by art courses, body painting to end up in special effect Make-Up techniques for Cinema. I then engaged myself into numerous internships where I got the chance to work in the Make-Up Team on sets like Studio Photo Shootings, fashion shows, television sets, cabarets and theatre companies”. After that, it was natural that she continues courses in new techniques for


Facial Make Up and skin care, full body care, nail art techniques… She was finally an accomplished Make-Up Artist. She was rather known then and doors opened for her in another make-up school in Paris where she even intervened on certain modules, and also formed part of the jury during the final exams. She worked for some years, alternatively in Paris and London. By then she wanted to have her own stuffs! Raya – The cosmetic brand The best tag for Dominque will ‘Ambitious’. She dares, with or without support. She approached a well-known company and ‘tailor made’ the, what for her means the best, skin friendly, cosmetic products. “Each product is accompanied by its sanitary certificate which guarantees the quality of the ingredients used. They are guaranteed phthalate free and paraben free. The products are 90% made of vegetal raw materials and have not been tested on animals” guarantees Dominique. She has specially selected foundations, dry make-up and greasy make-up, sequins, lipsticks and many other items and pallets that are perfect to the harshness of the climate and the complexities of Mauritian women and men. “They are excellent quality products that ensure a very good cover even if very little amount is used. They allow the skin to breathe while guarantying a perfect hold despite the heat and the humidity and highlights to the best our different skin colours” she attests. Raya Hair, Make Up and Full Body Care Studio Her studio in Trou-aux-Biches, right in front of the Beachcomber Training Academy, offers a complete, Head to Toe care for women and men. The other innovation is especially for women, a more than one hundred colours of CND Shellac semi-permanent nail polish, traditional colours with more acid tones, hands and feet will be beautiful all year round ”. This is new in Mauritius: we are launching an unlimited nail polish package! Change colour as many times as you like, depending on your moods, depending on your outfit, depending on the weather, for a fixed monthly fee. Because we are versatile, because we are conquered, because we are women” she announces. The space offers 15 fully equipped individual workstations and a photo corner to capture each of the realisations. 58

Raya Institute- School: Strictly for the passionate “The institute is a way for me to share what life has taught me. But I want to teach only to passionate people”. She wants to teach and give the opportunity to passionate people to succeed perfect make up, perfect hair styling and perfect full body care. Her courses are open, not only for those who want to do Hair, Make Up and Full Body Care professionally but for themselves. Explaining her intentions, “we offer individual or collective short training courses of 30 minutes, 90 minutes, 2 hours or 4 hours, to learn or improve their personal techniques for daily make-up, or a Saturday evening outing make up. But for those who want a more thorough professional training, we have just put On-the-job training that lasts 6 months. The program is very comprehensive and agreements have been signed for courses shared with Paris make-up schools (videoconference) and also to bring in specialist speakers from abroad. The courses are given both in French and in English”. She also divulgates that some serious partnership with Make-Up Institutes where her students will have the opportunity to pursue their studies in Paris. She is as well working to organize workshops where French former Disney Special Effects Make-Up Artists will participate. “In the end, my ambition for my students is to make them fully functional and certified Make- Up artists and Hair Stylists” says Dominique. She is a real passionate for sure but also a fierce Business woman. “I want to bring out the beauty of Mauritians women and men, further develop Mauritian professionals in Hair, Make Up and Full Body Care and position my Brand, Studio and Institute as a reference in this specific field and the Mauritian Fashion Industry” concludes Dominique Raya.






Sandrine Joseph: The will to go beyond her dreams Three years back, she didn’t even dreamt of becoming a Make-Up artist. But now, having been discovered and pushed by her young mentor Hans Dax and driven by ambition, Sandrine Joseph is now permitting herself to think big. Photography: Saachin Sagar | Text: Javed Sobah

She didn’t know that she had it in her. She is a married young woman and a mother of two kids who used to be a receptionist. Autodidact, she has always enjoyed doing Make Up for herself and her close friends. Always complimented on her talents, she took them humbly, till the day where her closest friend called upon her for a Glamour Chic Make Up. The latter was attending a cocktail party. The compliments from professionals and Fashion People she received on her Make-Up made her motivate Sandrine to follow a course in artistic MakeUp. That same friend contacted Hans Dax to ask him if he was training aspiring Make-Up artist. As Hans doesn’t do in private courses, he invited Sandrine in one of his open Workshop. This is where her great adventure began and finally she became the known assistant of Hans Dax. Far from being a novice, Sandrine showed Hans the extents of her talents. “The first time Hans asked me to assist him is on the Lion King Play set at the Mahatma Gandhi Institute in Moka. From then we developed a great friendship and thanks to him I am who I am today” reveals the thankful Sandrine.


She has been actively assisting Hans since June 2016. She has gained popularity after participating in Hans Dax’s three shows namely ‘Strike a Poz’, ‘Illumination’ and ‘Quintessence’. “I have to admit that being in the light since one year has given much more self-confidence and new dreams” says Sandrine. She is now contacted by Photographers, Model Agencies, Fashion Magazines and other key people in the Mauritian Fashion Industry to be the main Make-Up Artist. She has also positioned herself as a Bridal Make Up artist working with several Wedding Planners. The former receptionist has become a fully operating and valued Make-Up Artist. Despite having made quite a good name, Sandrine still wants to learn more. “I have the ambition to professionalise myself furthermore and be a degree holder in Make Up. I wish to be good enough to operate on any set and do any type of Make-Up” she says. She also has the intention of making her own Make-Up Show, Body Painting Show and other themed MakeUp events. She plans to associate her name to a cosmetic brand and also participate in local and international Make-Up Artists’ Competitions.

To understand her, it is important to know her background. Harriet had an exotic upbringing on her family’s sugar plantation in the South of Mauritius immersed in nature, she had a passion for the sea and she spent hours exploring the cliffs along the open ocean with extraordinary crashing waves. A place full of energy and passion and where she draws inspiration for her work, even today. Harriet studied in Paris, majoring in art history at l’École du Louvre which accentuated her passion for history, beauty and art, she would walk around the Louvre after hours and was lucky enough to watch the work of restorers in the museum’s reserves. This inspired her to become an art restorer and she proceeded to do a Masters in Florence. Here she met her husband, an Italian aristocrat and lived in his Tuscan castle. After 10 years in Tuscany and Umbria they moved to Rome with their 3 children and she worked in Trastevere in a restoration workshop. There, she worked on were many old masterpieces and had the satisfaction of bringing them back to life and unveiling their original beauty. All these details are reflected in Oceano. Harriet designs and creates each piece herself, making sure each one is as original and special as can be. Oceano is a brand 100% made in Mauritius and is an exquisite range of bracelets, necklaces and earrings, with pearls from farms across the world, stunning semi-precious stones from 66

Madagascar and basalt from the volcanic mountains of Mauritius. Oceano exists because of her strong desire to have a business that would bring together her Mauritian open air -nature - natural- roots with her passion for art and beauty, all accentuated from living in Italy for 20 years. Furthermore, she wanted to bring novelty to the classic pearl jewelry giving the pieces a contemporary twist, making pearls trendy and wearable for all ages. Each piece of jewelry is named after places in Mauritius that she loves. For example, the ‘Bel Air’, it is her home in the South of the Island along the black lava cliffs. She travels regularly to Madagascar for her stones and the silver comes from Italy. Whether worn casually or paired with something more formal, her pieces have an unparalleled sophistication. She and her creations can be followed on Instagram on @oceanopearls
