Bride: Tola Petgrave

 …Can’t remember how Tola heard about me…I think it was through a friend of hers who I did makeup for. Either way its nice to know I am getting referrals from former clients! Come to think of it, despite all my social media marketing efforts, I find that a vast majority of my clients have heard about me via word of mouth…sorry, I know I’m digressing…just thinking out loud.

My bride, Tola is naturally beautiful. She wanted her makeup "not heavy" but did insist on having some color on her lips…coral to be exact. We tried to schedule a trial but with our schedules it didn't end up happening.  In the end I was really happy with the look she had on her face when I was done with her makeup…she loved it! Yay!

 Gave her a "clean" contour  (not overly done where the person looks obviously contoured)
 Her look was a clean face, simple eyes and a pop of color on her lips.
 I had to put my foot down on the lashes. I can't believe she thought they were too dramatic!

I contoured her cheeks to give an illusion of cheek bones.

Tied her gele and did a quick makeup change for her night party. She smacked her lips and ruined my blending, but its all good she still looked fab. 
 God bless

Anyone that knows my sister-in-law knows she’s a fashionista…she does not play when it comes to dressing up, she’s always on point. Anyone that knows me knows I’m an advocate for   So when she reached out to me to get her makeup done for an event, I was all for it.

Chichi is pretty adventurous with her makeup so it took me a while to decide on something different from what she typically does. Ended up choosing to do her signature smoky eye but instead of using black, I went for a grayish blue eye color so it didn't come out too intense.


Don't you just love her outfit!! The Ogene men marry well :)
God Bless!
