Mom Talk - Lindy Lin

Mom Talk - Lindy Lin

November 7, 2022

We were lucky enough to catch a few minutes with the amazing celebrity makeup artist, social media guru and business owner, Lindy Lin, to find out how she juggles being a new mom and a busy entrepreneur.

DIFRAX: Tell us a bit about yourself and your business.

LINDY: I’m a self-made, full-time entrepreneur. I primarily do bridal & occasion makeup, as well as running my own clothing line and store in Canal Walk. I also dabble in a few social media endeavours. I'm new to the mom scene but I love it!

DIFRAX: As a mom and business owner how have you adapted your schedule to fit everything in? Do you have any tips for other working moms?

LINDY: Luckily I make my own schedule and thanks to help from my mother-in-law and babysitters I’m still able to attend events and functions as I would before having a baby, as well as fulfilling my clients' makeup bookings. TIP: It really does take a village, so seek out all the help from your loved ones that you can get. Being a mom is definitely a 24/7 gig, but luckily most of my bookings / planning / social media work gets scheduled in advance, however my baby comes first and any spare time goes towards making the income I need to.

DIFRAX: Tell us a bit about you guys as a family and what your favourite part of parenting is.

LINDY: Joao and I recently celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary (we've been together for 5 years in total). He is half Portuguese and I’m half Taiwanese, which makes Malakhi a complete South African, haha. We love every part of being new parents, and his smile makes me forget about the sleepless nights I get to experience. I do believe that it is our duty to bring our babies back to God and to try our utmost to rear them as best as possible. 

DIFRAX: What is Malakhi's favourite Difrax product and why?

LINDY: Malakhi is 4 months old now and I am still breastfeeding him. I do sometimes express and feed him in the S-bottles which he took well to the FIRST TIME and hasn’t rejected since ( my feelings were a little bit hurt, haha ) but I'm so glad it works well for us. The anti-colic valve definitely helps reduce the intake of air in the milk and reduces the winds he experiences.
