Nigerian MUAs

20 Oct 2011

Now, we finally deserve to have a post of our very own right here on Barbara & 1923

Nigerian MUAs is a facebook group that was created on the 24th August, 2011 by Barbara Onianwah. This was born out love for makeup as an art and a desire to see it grow to become a beautiful, envied and highly coveted industry not just in West Africa but in Africa as a whole.

Here is the group description

If you are a Nigerian makeup artist, skilled in your art, proud to be a Nigerian, knowledgeable about your products and the brands you use and with a desire to increase that knowledge and expertise, then this group is for you.

We are here to strengthen one another and criticise each other's works (to make us come out better in the long run), networking is the key here.

Let's go out and show we are capable

I also wrote a note on my facebook page which described the process that led me to the formation of the group and also the thinking behind the group. Click here to take you to the note.

Our members include Banke Meshida Lawal, Tara Durotoye, Eni Lise Balogun, Lola Maja Okojevoh, Funke Tonye-Preghafi, Kemi Kings Imevbore-Uwaga, Bisi Essien, Bimpe Onakoya, Irantiola Funmilayo, Bunmi O. Lasaki amongst others. We also have as our honorary members Ungenita Katrina Prevost, Jennifer H. James and Barbara Mensah.

All Nigerian MUAs all over the world please stand up and take a roll call because we are indeed growing, defining ourselves and getting ready to take the worldwide stage.
