Have you ever made use of false lashes? I cannot believe the difference they make to a look, & how they are just the icing on top! They can completely finish off your makeup & pull everything together, whilst making you look & feel so glam. Whenever I watch YouTube tutorials, I am always amazed at how lashes are a staple in their makeup routines.
I have been looking for lashes here in South Africa & nothing really blew me away – until I discovered Nandi Lashes. I am SO excited about these, the way they look & just the overall “gorgeous-ness” (yes, it’s not a word I know!).
Your name: Keshni Naidoo
Business name: Nandi Lashes
Tell me a little more about your business: We sell premium Mink Eyelashes , promoting the beauty of South African culture. As you can tell with our logo, we took inspiration from zulu culture and our lashes are named after traditional South African names. Most importantly we provide quality lashes & packaging at a decent price.
What makes your lashes so unique: a soft cotton band, super soft lashes 100% mink , lightweight & reusable up to 25 times with proper care & Cruelty Free.
What pushed you to start this business: I’ve always been know as a “lash queen” amongst my friends because I am always giving advice on styles and application tips plus wearing lashes daily. I just love how you can wear a lash and your whole mood could change, your eyeshape could appear different, you are able to mix it up just the way you do with your outfits. I began noticing all the gorgeous trends on social media but it was so hard to find locally at a good price and on top of that a brand that pays homage to our South African culture so I decided what if I start my own lash brand that fulfills these needs? & bam Nandi Lashes was born.
Where did your passion for makeup & beauty come from: My passion for makeup came as i saw it as the ability to express my creativity, connect with people and use it to enhance a women’s beauty which elevates her confidence.
Where can people buy your lashes: online will be launching soon but for now customers can place an order via DM on instagram / facebook or whatsapp and we deliver country-wide.
Why do you think every woman should rock a pair of lashes: Lashes are so versatile,they can be worn with or without makeup. they can be used to intensify what you already have or to create dimension to your eyes that you feel you need. It can also be used for drag, or themed looks.

Anything else you want to add: We love South African culture and women. In their diversity and beauty we take Inspiration and want to show this to the world. Some of our images on social media tries to exemplify this. Plus size , a variety of skin tones, drag Queens, modest dressers who prefer hijab, traditional African brides & we cannot wait to expand on this showcasing more S.A beauties and creating lash styles for everyone.
Aren’t these gorgeous?
I know that I can’t wait to get my hands on some!
