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.

A Day in the Life of a Makeup Artist


Working around the clock, does not always allow for the best dietary choices, and can lead to a multitude of health issues.

I am learning to indulge in a modified balance of fruit, vegetables, and proteins in my diet and cutting down on the dreaded carbs.. which I adore! I find it difficult to cut out the Junk Food especially when working late.

I recently purchased weighing scales, something which I have said I would never do! I hope to achieve and maintain a natural and effective food menu, whilst I am out and about with Brides and Makeup clients and My Makeup masterclass lessons. I know that portion size is my issue, and look forward to my healthier lifestyle by eating nutritious snacks and on the go.

My food intake this week has been varied as I have juggled, with appointments, intense heat in the car, and arriving immaculate for my clients. Freelance makeup artistes, beauty therapists, hairdressers need to make the best choices to keep us alert, creative and energized to deliver the best services for our makeup clients.

Always choosing an organic option is really the best decision for me, and I am making a consious effort to include lots of fresh fruit, a box of healthy snacks and re-organise my meals by pre-cooking them in the morning for later in the evening. 

I have taken the first step, and look forward to my healthy and new improved lifestyle with some good home cooking ..and dropping a dress size in the process!

Thank you all for your continued support!
