A self-taught make-up artist and beauty business owner took it further and built a comfy place for her clients.

According to a TikTok video, @refilwetsholamachekwane used her car garage to run her business. She would park her car outside the whole day to accommodate clients who have come to do hair and make-up.

She said when it was raining, the lace was a mess, it had leaks, and it was freezing. She felt sorry for her customers and needed to do better and right by them and her business.
