Hey Guys

So Lagos Fashion & Design Week came and went in the blink of an eye. It was chaotic. It always is but I wouldn’t miss it for the world.  It’s one of the biggest events on my social calender every year. As a Makeup Artist in Nigeria working in the Fashion Industry, it’s our version of New York, Paris, Milan Fashion Week etc.   I won’t lie, i’m super jealous of Bimpe Onakoya, even though she’s my makeup bff and i’m her biggest fan, i’m still jealous.  But i’m proud.  As always, of her achievements and the fact that she’s the first black african makeup artist to work with Maybelline at New York Fashion Week.

Everyone sees the glitz and the glamour out front watching the shows, taking pictures on the red carpet and critiquing all the beautiful designs as the models saunter along the catwalk, but they don’t see the mad rush and panic backstage when the models walk very casually off the stage and break into a full run stripping their clothes off with 10 people yelling at them to get into the next outfit.  The makeup artists and hair dressers are furiously yanking at their hair and wiping off one lipstick to go into the next.

It’s crazy. But it’s what we live for!

The Beauty Insider TV takes you backstage to give you a sneak peek into the life of a working makeup artist at the most prestigious fashion event in Nigeria.  Over 4 days I managed to catch up with a couple of different designers, brand owners, fashioni-stars and of course.. Bimpe Onakoya.  In this episode I chat to the delectable Temi Dollface, who always stands out in a crowd.  She came to support the amazing Maki Oh. I love her versatility and style.

This is my first episode, the others will be released through the week.   I’d really appreciate your feedback and suggestions on the type of videos you’d love to see me create for you!

Stay tuned, subscribe to our Youtube Channel.. Share and Enjoy!
