Sunday the 20th of October was the date. Venue was OUR PLACE on Funmi Okikiolu street, off Toyin street ,Ikeja.
Organized by Omolola Faleye of POPS Concepts, it was a well attended networking event with great minds and artists, makeup enthusiasts & intending makeup artists in Attendance. I left the event encouraged & passionate about seeing the beauty profession regarded highly by members of our society & not a profession for drop-outs(who are people by the way) or a profession for people who can't put their brains to work.
