First Nigerian Makeup Artist in Vogue

You cannot imagine my delight and excitement when I logged on to facebook last saturday and saw the link to this picture on Vogue. Vogue? Yes Vogue.

The best part is that the makeup artist credited for this picture is our dear Joy Adenuga. She is now the very first Nigerian makeup artist whose work is featured on PhotoVogue (visit her website and check out her gorgeous work)
Pause and explain Barbara *catching my breath*, lol.
For those of you who don't know, here is brief summation of what PhotoVogue is all about

If you are a photographer, or aspire to be one (and you are just starting out, even with just 2 or 3 photos) and you are looking for a space for your work to be considered, evaluated and enhanced, PhotoVogue is the place to be. This new section will enable you to upload on Vogue.it your photographs, that will be examined one by one and approved by our editorial staff. The best ones will be shown on a daily basis on PhotoVogue’s home page and the best three will be also published in the magazine.

A big congratulations to Joy Adenuga from me and of course you bet that I will be doing an interview of her very soon.

P.S. kudos to the entire team (the stylist is also Nigerian - Ihunna Eberendu). Fantastic job.
