SitPretty Beauty of the Day!!!

Hey Pretties,

Today's beauty of the day is none other than Patricia Ozegbe who many know as 'Sparkle Fashion'( a fashion accessory business based in New Jersey, United States with a branch in Ikeja, Lagos). 

We struck a friendship a few years back when i was seeking how to improve on my craft & source for products from the United States. She offered to help & that was how the journey began.

She was in Lagos for her cousin's wedding & you can be sure i was the mua of choice *wide grin*

A May to Remember!!!!

Hey Pretties,

If you don't follow me already, my instagram handle @sitprettymakeupmaverick hosts a lot of more recent updates as my owning a studio in lagos has taken so much time from me.  Having to shuutle between Ajah & Lekki has had me on the road for close to 5 hours daily , that the time to blog has become very precious.

So what happened in May? Yes, Nigeria's President & Vice-president Elect were sworn into office. But what is most memorable to me is that i spent the weekend of the Inauguration, dolling up the Wife of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria ( Glory to God ).

This wasn't like what i had experienced before, i was rubbing shoulders with people of repute & good status. It wasn't bridal makeup that i had over the years carved a niche in. This was makeup for a high-profile individual who is very modest in everything she does ( i couldn't work on her brows for instance, the change to her face would have being too dramatic & oh no, the script didn't involve drama ).

Thankfully, i had met her once through the referral of a very wonderful client of mine, Mrs F. It was for a gala event before the elections took place & it was just a 20-minute encounter. But i never expected to get a message that read ' I have been asked to bring you to Abuja for some days '.

Whether i like it or not, SitPretty made history & will be in any pictures you see of the beautiful wife of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, you can be sure of that.

I give God praise for his faithfulness & support. Indeed a diligent (wo) man , will stand before Kings & not common people.

From Kaduna with Love!!!

Hey Pretties,

so last month, work took me to the town of Barnawa in Kaduna State all for Oyindamola Adebosin.

Referred by my dearest family friend, Nkem, i didn't meet Oyinda till i got to Kaduna even though she resides in Lagos. Kaduna, was the location of her Traditional Wedding as respect had to be paid to her parents who are based in Kaduna State.

As usual, Aero Contractors moved our 3:50pm flight to 5:15pm which seemed like the longest wait of my life. But, trust the capable Oyinda to have sorted the flight, airport transportation & hotel accomodation of all her vendors flying in from Lagos.

On the flight, i met her trusted Videographer Tolu ( Instagram - @tolusholanke ), her Photographer Jide ( Instagram - @jideakinyemi ) & 2nd photographer Kunle ( @elnukawo ). So, riding 45minutes to Barnawa was a bit interesting.

On getting to the bride's house to get acquainted, we met a welcome party. Suya, lots of food & drinks & an amazing DJ who worked his magic, made the long trip worth it.

Fast forward to the next day, the trad ceremony wasn't to begin till 3pm, so imagine how my morning was. Absolutely restful!

For her dress change, she changed from her Blue Monotone Ensemble to a Pink Monotone ensemble. At the end of the day, i had a completely satisfied bride.

Here's to more visits to Kaduna in the nearest future.

Unveiling Of The Makeup Artist Guild of Nigeria #MAGN

Hey Pretties,

So something huge happened in the Nigerian Makeup Industry on Wednesday, the 11th of March, 2015 & i'm delighted to bring this news to you as i've been challenged with my blogging & sometimes i get information late because my other activities.

We experienced a quantum leap in the makeup industry , it was the unveiling of guild governors of the of the Makeup Artist Guild of Nigeria #MAGN.
Now, for so long, the makeup Industry has been without a regulatory body & i'm sure the pros of having one outweigh the cons in so many ramifications. Maybe now, many will begin to respect the profession of Makeup Artistry & Beauty as a whole.

MAGN is Nigeria’s makeup and beauty industry association that will bring passionate beauty forward professionals together.

The mission in plain English is to establish, promote integrity and raise high standards within our industry through the active participation of our members by offering a suite of benefits that will enhance their various enterprise.

The need for standardization and raising the bar arose as the industry began to experience a great number of makeup artists and also the sudden interest of international brands plying their trade in Nigeria, has necessitated the very crucial need for this institution. 

Professionalism, ethics of the trades and other very important tenets are needed to sustain the credibility and respect in the global market.

MAGN ‘s mandate is to be an active authoritative voice promoting integrity and high standards within the beauty industry.

The Governors Nominated selected based on a number of criteria are: Tara Fela-Durotoye, Banke Meshida Lawal, Bolanle Okusanya Feyita ,Eni Balogun, Yewande Peregrino, Lolade Ogunjimi, Bunmi Oyeniyi ,Kemi Imevbore Uwaga, Olusegun Hakeem ,Bimpe Onakoya and Ebele Ugochukwu.

They will serve as expert spokespeople to the Guild, they will also ensure the Guild remains relevant with the needs of its Executives and the industry at large .As advisers to the executives of the guild, they will provide support, inspire and motivate MAGN members.

After a year,an executive body will come on board who will run the affairs of the guild, they will be nominated and voted for publicly (the Governors are not part of the executives).

A few witnesses were invited to be part of the guild governors unveiling:
