Hey there beautiful people ,
It was a special day yesterday, which is why i want to take out time to wish all the “men” a happy fathers Day in arrears , God continue to bless you as you hold the family firm together.
Sometimes last week, I attended the one-day-hands-on workshop organized by BMPRO – it was such a fun learning experience.The plan as always was to be open to learn anything from anyone which has invariably helped me to be a better person.
There were 3 classes, Makeup with BMPRO, Gele tieing with Segun gele and Hair styling with Lyzadora and they all happen to be professionals on top of their game. Baileys was the sponsor of the day and they had a mobile bar setup for the event, there were also refreshments like Small chops and Chapman.I had to pass on the drink 🙂 , I am pretty sure you don’t want me reporting what didn’t go down 😉
There was also Nkechi from Bellanaija who spoke about social media and business highlighting that as a professional makeup artist one must invest in a good camera to capture your works , look for a good retoucher to edit your pics a little bit ,develop a logo and always watermark your pictures,make a short note on the pictures so that people can relate with it and finally develop a signature look
Banke Meshida Lawal aka ‘Queen B’ needs no introduction if you are a makeup lover or artist ,she is a celebrity makeup artist with a Midas touch. Her works are a constant source of inspiration and she is very talented and has continually opted to set a standard for other makeup artists to follow.
Queen B demonstrated how she does her bridal makeup showcasing also all the products she uses. The transformation on the model was sensational and i have soaked in enough to make me better , she also took out time to answer all questions raised about products as well sighting useful tips.
Top makeup artist Segun gele from Huston who by the happens to be a fantastic teacher with his interactive session .A few makeup artists volunteered to show him how we tie gele here in Nigeria , he went further to demonstrate how he does his special gele without holding back on technique. He has indeed carved a niche for himself in gele tying.
To cap it all was lyzador, who is a top makeup artist also from Huston ,she took us on hair styling class which for me is about the main reason i attended , i particularly love her edgy style. She made hair styling look so easy with her demonstration and great tips .
I had at the event what could be best described as mad fun , there were also
makeup products on sale at discounted prices.
I urge you not to miss the next one, enjoy what went down below :
P.S If you were at the event , its ok to also share what you learnt that I may have missed out
Till my next post
hugs and kisses.
