Nostalgic!

Makeup by Jagabeauty for Ejiro Amos Tafiri, 2015 Luxury Resort Collection – “The Madame”. Still one of my favourite collections from EAT- not because we did the makeup but the designs, clothes, fabric used (silk, satin and jersey pieces layered with lace, luscious mixes of chantilly and guipure laces and aso-oke separates).

It was just simply luxurious and glam overdose and then the perfect deal was the venue of the photoshoot- The Porsche Place! Home of Exotic Cars! I saw my dream car- It is still waiting for me!

#wcw- Bobbi Brown of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

Bobbi-Brown_wcw_Jagabeauty-Blog-Post

Reading about Bobbi Brown today has put fire in my bones- the good kind of fire! Fire that reminds me that, If I think it, believe it, work hard at it then certainly I can Make It Happen!

About our Woman Crush:

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, today, is the no. 1 makeup artist brand founded by a woman.

Bobbi Brown (born April 14, 1957) is an American professional makeup artist and the founder and CCO of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics.

Her startup story?! It all started with a simple idea – natural looking makeup and a lipstick that looked like lips, a desire to feel comfortable in her own skin. More than twenty years after the debut of her brand, Bobbi continues to define the way women wear makeup and the way they see themselves. In 2010, inspired by her belief that “all women are pretty without makeup, but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful”, Bobbi introduced Pretty Powerful, an ad campaign featuring real women from all walks of life. In 2013, Bobbi launched the Pretty Powerful Campaign for Women & Girls, a global initiative dedicated to funding non-profit organizations that strive to empower women and girls through education.

Quotes by Bobbi Brown:

On Business | I never learned management. I never went to business school. I’m an artist. I happened to have really clear ideas of what I thought my business should be.

Quote-on-Business_Bobbi-Brown_Jagabeauty

On ‘Pretty Powerful Campaign’ – “I believe that all women are pretty without makeup- but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful.”

Beauty Isn’t Just About Makeup.

“I believe that beauty comes in all ages, colors, shapes and sizes. It’s not about looking like someone else or trying to be someone you’re not. It’s about figuring out what works for you. Being Pretty Powerful is much bigger than beauty. It’s about confidence and the path you take to achieve it.” -Bobbi Brown, makeup artist and entrepreneur, as written on Stylelist

Nigeria’s First Ever Makeup Runway!

I remember the first Lagos MakeUp Fair, September 2012, my first ever LMUF1, I was an exhibitor. This was my most memorable LMUF ever!

Or so I thought!

Then LMUF4 happened! Different from the other LMUF’s, there were about 40 exhibitors. But this one had a twist! It had Nigeria’s first ever makeup runway featuring 12 of Nigeria’s finest pro makeup artists and your girl Queejaga was one of them! Lol! As you can see, I had fun! The feeling of walking down the runway with my models, that is an experience I will never forget!
