Majestique Magazine Photosession


I was fortunate to work alongside the founders of the recently launched Lifestyle magazine namely 'Majestique International', showcasing the global news within Current affairs, Entertainment and exclusive coverage of the Fashion Industry in Nigeria and global trends.



Celebrating the in-depth coverage and diverse culture in the community, the magazine has its fashion focus rooted in the developing and fast emerging African fashion scene. A collaboration of talented writers, and experienced journalists depict a heritage steeped in rich fashion trends.

I created a natural makeup look to enhance the beautiful, and resplendent bone structure with finely tuned contouring. I hi-lighted the flawless skin of these dedicated Media entrepreneurs using my current makeup range of choice by L.O.G Cosmetics. 

Celebrating The Gele with Natural Bold Makeup Trends

I was honored to spend the afternoon working on this fashion shoot with the regal Founders of Majestique International magazine, capturing the diversity and elegance of the traditional ornamental 'Gele' for their photo session. The 'Gele' pronounced (Gay_Lay) is the traditional Nigerian and African cultural headdress (head wrap) that can be worn everyday or as elaborate as the wearer would wish, Gele bling is the latest trend. The is usually made up of a stiff cotton or silk fabric. 
This is the regal crowning glory for many Nigerian women, embracing her status and social importance, the ultimate expression of femininity. 


This traditional fashionista headdress is usually worn by female members of the community for Church, Ceremonial events, milestone birthday celebrations, Weddings, and many special occasions. with the ever-changing fashion looks across many regions the stylish 'Gele' is evolving and emerging as the fashion accessory must have across the Globe! With A List celebrity stars donning the traditional style, the Majestique Ladies looked stunning...



Thank you Rebecca, Theresa, and Onome for an Inspirational afternoon.
Congratulations on a successful photo session, I wish you every success with your Majestique International Magazine.

  1. This wedding magazine is really helpful for most brides to select a right wedding theme and décor. I have been working in an event planning firm and observed that these days most of brides wants to organize their wedding at NYC wedding venues after getting ideas from such magazines.
