While working as cabin crew at Fastjet Airline, Pendo Shuma spent most of her time learning how to do make-up. Once she perfected the art, she started doing make on her friends and relatives for a small fee. In 2013, she resigned from Fastjet to start her own make-up business, Lavie Makeup Studio. Shuma, 28, now receives 40 to 60 clients per month and has already developed her first line of products.
