Get Omosexy’s Picture Perfect Red Carpet Look! Make-Up Artist, Kemi Imevbore-Uwaga Shares the Steps



Have you ever wondered how to get some of your favourite celebrities red carpet make-up looks? Well, look no further! BN Beauty brings you a step by step analysis of the star look of  Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde at the BEFFTA Film Icon award event.

Today,UK based make-up artist, Kemi Imevbore-Uwaga, the creative director of KemiKings Beauty gives us all the steps we need to know to achieve the actress’ fun, girly and edgy look.

For a youthful and fresh base, La Mer moisturising cream was massaged on the face to revitalise the skin and promote circulation. Boots No 7 shine free base was applied on the T-zone and brows. This is very essential if you have oily/combination skin. Go over with KKbeauty foundation primer and let it set for 10 seconds. Milani cover crème was used as a foundation and buffed into the skin. MAC studio finish concealer was applied to cover any imperfection and blended perfectly. A translucent powder was used to set the under eye and to achieve the velvety matte finish, MAC blot powder in dark was used on the T-zone only and the perimeters of the face was dusted softly with BlackUp sublime powder. For the soft sheen on Omotola’s cheeks, KKbeauty blush in Chaos was applied softly. To add extra dimension and structure to the face, Sleek contour palette in dark was used on the hollows of the cheeks, the corners of the forehead and her nose.

For those super sexy and fierce eyes, apply an eye shadow primer all over the lid and blend. Pat on YSL midnight black eye shadow up to the crease and blend a dark matte purple eye shadow in the crease to diffuse the harsh edges. Line the eyes with a black and purple kohl pencil, coat the lashes with L’oreal Voluminous False Lashes mascara and for that extra oomph, apply LYG lam wispy lashes. Omotola’s brows were carefully sculpted with Rimmel brow pencil in dark brown, set with KKbeauty brow powder in Auburn and highlighted with a concealer.

Line lips with a deep berry lip liner like NYX Plum lip pencil and fill the lips, blot with a 1 ply tissue and re-apply. This will create a stain on the lips and ensure the colour lasts all day. Apply Revlon Balm stain in Bitten all over and for that girly pout, use L’oreal Glam shine lip-gloss on the centre of the lips.

This edgy hairstyle is a variation of a Mohawk or beehive do. The secret to achieving this rock star hairstyle is all in the brush work and prep. Start by applying John Frieda serum all over the hair, curl hair using a 1” curling wand and pin in place to create height and hold. After 10 minutes, take off the pins and run fingers through the hair. Tip your head upside down, sweep up the hair and pin in sections until you reach the front. Also, sweep and smooth the sides of the hair and pin to create a fake Mohawk side. Now get creative, refine the tresses with a tail comb and pin into desired style. Blast hair with a mist of holding hairspray and voila, you’re good to go.

    she’s not just an actress, but a role model in all facets. Using her in this regard is what i agree with cos she has never seize to look ravishingly beautiful on any red carpet.

    Its not easy to be on the spot light fa!
    She didn’t tell us how long it took for the overall look. It takes me about 25 mins to get my make-up done and i feel its too long. If I have to do all this I might just get to a function when its nearly over.

      I saw “Le Mer” and gulped a bit… Le Mer aint cheap at all oh, retailing in the £150-£200 range per bottle. So I’m thinking in Nigeria, with added ‘import commissions’ it’ll probably be sold between N50,000 to N70,000 per bottle. However, if that explains the constant gorgeousness of Omotola’s face, I certainly see Nigerians buying out La Mer products in the not-distant future…

    Omotola is too beautiful for all these busyness. There’s too much going on from her neck and up. She’s not a petite girl, so applying the principle of less is more will work the best for her. Hair and necklace are too busy, and the makeup is too much. Her lips and dress look great. Love the dress on her.

    I absolutely love this. Omotola is the most beautiful actress and her makeup is always for me perfection! So this is nice. I leaarnt a thing or two myself and would apply when doing makeup I.e the no 7 shine free base. Never knew that and always wondered why my oily skin would misbehave always in pictures! Now I see the secret to taming that. Thank you kemi kings and Omosexy for this! Yah!

    How lovely? If only I was this way inclined. Too much hard work – would probably only do this for my wedding, which is passed so I guess, I’ll stick to saying ‘how lovely’. Beautiful lady.

  26. to each his own

    November 28, 2012 at 3:09 pm

    Really,really not feeling the hairstyle on her…not her kind of face

  27. huh?

    November 28, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    “She is based in UK,but available all over the world” her as a person or her product? You mean,if I want her to make me up,and I’m base in Nigeria,she will come over,all expense paid by me?

    November 28, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    No doubt, she is beautiful but I she should tone down on the ‘omosexy’.

  31. Banke

    November 28, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    On someone else I’ll say there’s too much going on but it’s Omotola and she rocked it well.

    Guys, don’t go broke trying to buy all the products o, use similar products you have.

    November 28, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    Kemi, you know Omotola is rich and is paying for the most expensive products to be used on her. Some of us can’t afford this oh! Don’t you think you should have put cheaper substitutes in your writeup? You people should not yab me o…Ehn hen…
