Posted by : Omontese Akhetuamen April 19, 2014
I am a proffessional makeup artist/hairstylist and head makeup artist and founder of beauty cook studio .
My journey into the providing beauty services started off as a hobby from my early years in life .
My gele skills was discovered as early as I turned 2 years (the mirror I used to practice that skill still exist in my grandparents house in Uromi).
My hair making skill started out as early as turned 4 years in the cold city of Jos, I as well practiced on my head and sometimes sneak to the next house where they had a makeshift salon and watch them work .i recall that my mother warned me sternly before leaving for the boarding not to let anyone know I could make hair , little did she realize how famous I became because of my hair plaiting skills and the seniors favorite , until it was writing in the house misteress section of my report sheet , in her words "omon spends all her time making hair for students instead of reading " phew . That holiday was a tough one .
Thank God I made my SSCE results in one sitting and never repeated a class. My parents would have had my head .
I continued with my passion and improved my skill as years went by.
I practically walked into makeup Artisty sometime in my Unilag days precisely in year 2005, after several people had made countless remarks about my well arched eyebrows and eyeshadow shadow blending . From all this I got invited to work in modeling agency , so I had to purchase my first first kit with 10,000 and later my makeup box for 5,000 . All this time I was ignorant of who a makeup artist was or the existence of other makeupartists .
As my interest grew I discovered the business side of make up and invested my in my art .
My knowledge for gele made my art complete and gave me an edge over others .
