About Us

Meet the team!

 A little bit about the founder: Gael Baines (Dr Gael Fenhalls) has a PhD from the University of Cape Town in Medical Biochemistry. After obtaining her PhD in Breast Cancer she worked at Tygerberg Medical School (Stellenbosch University) in the Department of Medical Biochemistry for 9 years. Gael piloted studies in the fields of Tuberculosis and HIV which were funded by Glaxo Smith Kline. She was also a supervisor to numerous students and lectured several honours students.

Due to the fact that Emma could never wear makeup it inspired Gael to look for beauty products that are hypoallergenic. And Glamore Cosmetics was born!! Gael worked closely with the CTFA (Cosmetics Toiletries Fragrance Association of South Africa) to ensure that the ingredients in these imported products are acceptable to the laws governing skincare products in South Africa. Not only are both the wonderful brands hypoallergenic but cruelty free as well.  Hean Cosmetics and Oceanic Skincare  are from Poland and Gael totally loves working with them. They are always trending the latest ingredients and also believe that people are important....everyone matters!

Hean and Oceanic have become top sellers. The quality is outstanding but don't believe her....order and try it for yourself.

  • Her top philosophy in life is to always have a ‘backup’ plan no matter what and more importantly to never give up!
  • Our customers mean everything to us! If we can make them happy we will, no matter what.
  • Gael loves speaking to people and getting to know them so  if you have any questions email her. She always replies.



  Emma Baines is 21 years old and currently at UCT studying a Bcom LLB. She is responsible for social media and promotions and competitions as well as packing for Glamore Cosmetics. Emma loves makeup and cosmetics and she firmly believes that one can never ever never ever have enough makeup and it is important to always look one’s best.

  • Emma suffers from sensitive and hypoallergenic skin which is why Hean and AA cosmetics are perfect for her skin. Hean and AA cosmetics are free of harmful chemicals so she doesn't react badly. A huge bonus is that Hean is cruelty free which fits in with her humane nature.
  • Emma's must have items include a great lipstick, matte foundation, 24 hour moisturizer, scarves and thigh high boots and she believes it is 100% true that if we look after our skin now we won’t have a problem later!

Nafeesah's Professional Makeup Kit includes Most Hean cosmetics and Glamore Brushes 'the products are hypoallergenic and cruelty free and as a professional, this is a total must to have on hand for clients who have sensitive skin. Myself and the client won't have to worry about whether this foundation will cause a rash or a break out. And that has happened before, so this brand was God sent.'
