It has been a splendid month thus far even though I have been unavoidably absent, I had to take out time to visit the lastest addition to my family – my niece Anuoluwayikanmi. We bless God for this beautiful angel.
OK , so whats new ?? On Wednesday, we experienced a quantum leap in the makeup industry , it was the unveiling of guild governors of the of the Makeup Artist Guild of Nigeria #MAGN.
This is unarguably the dawn of a new era in the makeup industry, finally some level of regulation will be achieved through this platform.
MAGN is Nigeria’s makeup and beauty industry association that will bring passionate beauty forward professionals together.
The mission in plain English is to establish, promote integrity and raise high standards within our industry through the active participation of our members by offering a suite of benefits that will enhance their various enterprise.
The need for standardization and raising the bar arose as the industry began to experience a great number of makeup artists and also the sudden interest of international brand plying their trade Nigeria has necessitated the very crucial need for this institution. Professionalism, ethics of the trades and other very important tenets are needed to sustain the credibility and respect in the global market.
MAGN ‘s mandate is to be an active authoritative voice promoting integrity and high standards within the beauty industry.
The Governors Nominated selected based on a number of criteria are: Tara Fela- Durotoye, Banke Meshida Lawal, Bolanle Okusanya Feyita ,Eni Balogun Yewande Peregrino, Lolade Ogunjimi Bunmi Oyeniyi ,Kemi Uwaga, , Olusegun hakeem ,Bimpe Onakoya and Ebele Ugochukwu
They will serve as expert spokespeople to the Guild, they will also ensure the Guild remains relevant with the needs of its Executives and the industry at large. Advisers to the executives of the guild will provide support, inspire and motivate MAGN members.
After a year an executive body will come on board who will run the affairs of the guild, they will be nominated and voted for publicly (the Governors are not part of the executives)
