Tell us about your experience as a makeup artist?
It all started 2012/13 when I went for my training, it has nôt been that easy because after the training you have to continue Practicing what you have learnt or else this thing call artistry will just leave you, to be a makeup artist you have to be creative,is it the days of watching tutorials on youtube and not having materials to practice with nii or the days of doing free bridalmakeup for my friend as wedding gift just to see someone to practice with, I even went to a radio station in Ibadan paid money to announce free training just to see people to use blend my skills, but here we are today to the glory of God I have trainees that are now beautypreneurs and am also doing well in the industry too also we are not where we want to be yet but we are not where we use to be.

Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration as soon as I set my eyes on the person am working on.

Who are some people that have inspired you throughout your career?
Have got lots of them, but my number one is my mum. She inspired me a lot and others are my boss in the person of Makemeoverbeauty, Nsoleke, Anitabrows, houseofminey to mention few.

How would you describe your signature look and what is it about your style that sets you apart from other makeup artists?
I always want my clients to look radiant. I like when they slay my signature to parties, I don't say because she is paying me lesser or the other person is paying me higher am not going to do my best on her face NO I don't do that because it gives me joy when I get compliments from my clients.

If a customer asks for a style that you are sure would not suit them, how do you convince the customer to go otherwise?
Hmmm that I just tell my client to seat pretty, relax and trust me with her face and with the grace of God they always love it.

How do you prepare dry and oily skin for foundation makeup application
For my clients that have dry skin I do moisturize before makeup application to avoid cracked foundation while for the oily skin clients a do my CTM technics (cleans, tone and moisturise) the steps makes the client pores close n makes the makeup last all day.

How often do you clean your makeup tools such as brushes?
As we all know cleanliness is next to Godliness, I do clean any tools or brush I  use immediately after use and I do my general wash day once or twice in a month it depends on how I use them.

What experiences do you have apart from making up characters apart from using typical makeup techniques?
When I was in my tender age my mum trained me with trading(buying and selling kitchen utensils) so apart from being a makeup artist am also a trader because I still buy and sell stuffs that are not related to makeups.

How can people connect with you?
