Banke Meshida I'll say is the most popular, I wouldn't say she's the best. She did both my Aunt and sister's make-up for their wedding, and to tell you the truth her work didn't impress me at all.

@outkast. Maybe in your opinion. But even while living in the north, I knew about Tara Durotoye long before I even heard of Banke.

@segedoo, think I agree with you, Tara is the bomb!

Alot of nigerian make up artists are still in the back ground waiting patiently for that big break so they can astonish the world. i am one of such, with my OSDD creations, there is alot to make up, its not just about the colours or the powder that stays the longest, its goes much deeper than that. Try me, 08023105470 wink

Banke Meshida, she's definately the best kiss
Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by spikedcylinder: 6:00pm On Aug 09, 2006
Banke has launched her own make up line. . . . BM PRO while Tara has always had hers.I think those two are the most popular in naija right now.
Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by snazzydawn(f): 8:23pm On Aug 19, 2006

I think the top Make up artists in Nigeria are Bayo Hastrup, Tara Durotoye, Banke Meshida, Bunmi Oyeniyi (Unveil) in that order.I am also a make up artist and am waiting for that break to be discovered.

Make sure it is the makeup artist and not the photographers + lights you are admiring. Having seen what the air brush facility on photoshop can do.

If you are looking to be made up for a personal event like birthday parties, dinners, weddings etc - try Elsquare Faces (www.elsquarefaces.com).

Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by fashlak(f): 12:16pm On Apr 24, 2007

Y'ello Guys,
I reside in Lagos,I'll want to know a good place where I can learn making-up and Like how much would this cost?
Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by spoilt(f): 5:46am On May 28, 2007
no one makes my face up better than me. grin


Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by dgal(f): 9:45am On Jul 01, 2007
hi guys, to tell the truth makeup application is quite simple when you get the hang of it, but those who stand out are the ones who pay attention to detail, also we all know that the best makeup artist is really the best advertiser, thats where photography ,the gift of refining pictures comes in, im also a makeup artist and im impressed mostly by banke, bunmi and chidinma of divine looks, however any one who takes the time out to beautify another gets my props. eyelights- 08057319787
Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by kendra47: 2:09pm On Mar 30, 2008
I think Eni balogun of 'Lise beauty range is the top artist in Nigeria.Not just because she trained me,because i experienced the difference between other so called artist.I did  attend Tara's makeup  school paid a lot of money,never saw her once and i learnt absolutely nothing.I then went to the Lise makeup school and couldn't believe that i got so much better with her 10 day class.Maybe her techniques were different  and very americanised and was the latest method I've come across.The things i learnt from her, other makeup artists in Nigeria are not even close to it yet.They all just have names.She even has her own makeup line ,she re-launched in 2006  in Lagos from the US. Her work is simply out of this world.

None of you have heard of OLOLADE AWODEIN she is the best if you ask me,
i was in ghana and they had a runway show the make up the models wore was perfect she did most of the outfit and make up. she is actually the hottest over there in ghana maybe it's because she schools there, but i think you should try her out outfits and make-ups just the perfect ever, i would get her contact for you if you need it, believe me absolutely pretty cant stop comenting on it, lol it's a WOW!!!
OLOLADE AWODEIN she lives in lagos i think but goes to school in ghana,

Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by ayettymama(f): 5:28am On Mar 31, 2008
if that make up in that picture is supposed to present her work, then its bullshit, cos that picture is airbrushed and photoshopped. Show us a picture with no computer aided effects and i'll tell you if your so-called make up artist is good enogh.

No2 you dont need a makeup artist unless your handicapped or your a guy, all you need is good make up and with the right practice and creative styling you'll look the bomb!!!
try different make up products and colour combining
always use foundation that goes with your skintone
Nigerian women go easy on the lipstick and even easier on the lip pencil!!! Remember we have big lips that dont need definition!!!!!!!

Tara of HOUSE OF TARA ……she sure is a professional and has carved a name for her self , a pioneer mankeup artist ….her makeup is really impeccable, I can attest to that ….she's got a skincare line called Orekelewa….and has lately lunched her branded perfume …….
Bayo Haastrup of Ijade Egbin isn’t bad either…
Re: Top Nigerian Makeup Artists by dome2: 10:22am On Apr 01, 2008
Tara is to the make up industry in Nigeria what Ali Baba is to stand up comedy. Seven loud gbosa to Tara. GBOSA! GBOSA! GBOSA! GBOSA! GBOSA! GBOSA! GBOSA!
