Local businesswoman and former Mrs South Africa 2012 Lynné de Jager can now also add a world record to her name after she applied lipstick to a thousand people’s lips in an hour at a recent event at Brooklyn Mall. Organiser Gavin Prins said the previous record was 535 women in an hour.
‘It was madness, but it was amazing,’ he said.
Prins said they are ecstatic that Lynné managed to break the record in her first-ever attempt.
The proceeds gained from people who participated in the challenge will go towards Operation Smile for corrective surgery for children born with cleft lips.
De Jager said: ‘My idea was to do something meaningful. I wanted us as South Africans to be part of a world record event.’
She said the real winners, however, were the children who would benefit from the proceeds and have their lives changed forever.
