Bimpe Onakoya in Vanity Fair UK

You all know how really excited I get when a Nigerian makeup artist pushes the boundaries, is first in what they do and is recognised internationally.

Well, another has done it and it is our very own Bimpe Onakoya, celebrity makeup artist and one of Nigeria's finest (prior to becoming a makeup artist, I was familiar with her work). She was recently celebrated by Black Up at the opening of their International store in Ikeja Mall, Lagos.
This year's edition of LFDW enjoyed the presence of this wonderful makeup artist (the second Nigerian MUA I ever assisted) as key makeup artist and also Vanity Fair UK's Fashion editor Cristina Manfredi.

Working with a great team - Anita Quansah, Bridget Awosika & Iconic Invanity; Models from Beth Model Management and Veronica Odeka of Vane Style; Bimpe has become the first Nigerian makeup artist with a fashion spread in Vanity Fair.

Enjoy the beautiful pictures and I must say a big congratulations to Bimpe (and the entire team)

You bet that as soon as I can, I will be featuring a blog interview of Bimpe Onakoya.
Once again, a huge congratulations to Bimpe *hugs and kisses from me*
