I have missed you as much as you have missed me, with the heat these days, I had to be begging for mercy, but thank God for the beautiful rain this morning - it's refreshing.
Well well well, this is a late post, but I just have to post it, because it's a beautiful day filled with colours and intelligent minds that add beauty to people's lives - Makeup Artists.
Have I ever told you that I love what I do and that I love the beauty industry in Nigeria? Well if you haven't heard it, now you know. And so when I heard about The Maybelline Masterclass with thier Artistic Director and Celebrity MUA Bimpe Onakoya, I made it a point to register fast and 'turn up' against all odds.
The venue was at Raddison Blu Hotel Victoria Island. There was a brief introduction by Mrs Titi Offor while the Maybelline Nigeria Brand Manager Miss Bukola Balogun carried us through the history of Maybelline and all the different milestone from 1915 - 1930 (the eyebrow pencil was created) - 1917 (the great lash was created) - 1970-1980 - 1991 (the slogan 'maybe she's born with it maybe it's Maybelline' was started) - 1996. We also learnt the founder goes by the name Mabel and she used Vaseline and Coal as makeup, so Mabel and Vaseline gave birth to what we now know today as 'Maybelline'.
Here are the pictures, though I won't be able to mention all names nor caption all the pictures, but basically enjoy viewing them.

And the Masterclass begins, Aunty Bimpe gave a brief introduction about what she loves to do. I tell you, this woman can apply makeup on somebody in her sleep, 'I breathe makeup' - in her words. I love her silly, she's so down to earth and ready to share knowledge
