About RabiaGhoor; SwiitchBeauty Founder:
The self- professed makeup addict conceptualized SwiitchBeauty in 2014 as a 10th grader, in a 4 square metre area within her bedroom. Inspired by the international beauty reviews she consumeddaily on Youtube, Rabia was moved to remedy her observation of a very limited locally produced makeup product offering.
An even greater motivating factor was the need to develop and provide affordable product that in no way compromised on quality.
The brand has amassed popularity withand remains relevant tomillennials who appreciate its ethos, namely:affordability, quality,woman empowerment, continuous customer consideration and engagement, innovation as well as a deliberate integration of pop culture references.
Ghoor’s sharp wit and social media know-how serve SwiitchBeauty well.
A company called Beyond the Lemonade Stand, which mentors "teenpreneurs", gave Ghoor her first big break as a speaker, at a Gibs Business School summit.
The powerhouse operates out of her headquarters in Laudium, Pretoria where she manages a four-person team.
Rabia is involved in the entire process — working with manufacturers, researching the latest trends and creatingexciting packaging and names from the tongue-in-cheek "Glowgasm" palette to the "Slays for Days" palette. Every product is “put to the test”by professional makeup artists and industry tastemakers,before being placedon sale online.
