    Misi Molu had the best look. The others are a little too heavily made up for me. Jheeze!


    October 2, 2013 at 11:01 am

    i luv fade ogunro. tanx to make up sha. lips sealed

  14. my love

    October 2, 2013 at 11:01 am

    Fade Ogunro in my opinion is the definition of a make over.

    • Middy

      October 2, 2013 at 11:45 am

      Fade’s makeup rocks!

  15. Me

    October 2, 2013 at 11:14 am

    A bit too heavy handed for me. unfortunately this is the case with most Naija ‘celebrity’ MUAs. IMHO, ShoMya’s sleb makeovers are still the best I’ve seen. I also like Lola Maja’s work but I think her style is more editorial/arty.

    • Americanahh

      October 2, 2013 at 1:07 pm

      I agree. The woman bakes their face.

    way too much make up if you ask me… but to each, his own
    i guess

    Thank God for make-up though!

  19. Anon

    October 2, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Misi Molu’s look is the best IMO.

  20. i no send

    October 2, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    fade takes it but she is naturally pretty so it just
    enhanced it for me

  21. june

    October 2, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    @ me – I completely agree…make-up is supposed to enhance
    your beauty, not make you look like a clown! Geez we do tend to
    over-do everything here in naija. If it’s not make up that’s the
    wrong shade of light…it’s the over-arched eye-brow. When did
    subtlety die?

    And herein lies my fear – getting made-over, seeing the Before/After pictures, and wondering who in the heck ever told me I was pretty?!?!?!

    The changes are just too different. Nice, but different. 🙁

    • jcsgrl

      October 2, 2013 at 1:35 pm

      As in Berry, makeup covers a multitude of sins. I decided to free myself from the bondage of everyday makeup and yes wear my natural face acne, blemishes and all to work!!! It feels good and really scary…but I still get compliments 🙂 not as much as with makeup though 🙁 but its ok. I like my face makeup free…anybody who e dey pain should jump into lagoon!

      No be small tin o. The transformations are pretty but i don’t think i want to look different from the the way i look naturally. I’m make up free almost all the time except when i’m stepping out with le hubs…but my make up collection is mostly in neutral colors. I no go lie sha…the make overs cover a whole lotta sins :).
      All in all people should do what suites them, i focus more on trying keep my skin clear.

    now I know how beautiful I am.without makeup still look very good.And I have pictures to prove it,lool.Wish I knew this growing up,wouldn’t have thought myself ugly 🙂

    October 2, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    Still don;t understand why anyone will let their MUA do before and after shots. Like warrahell?

  30. @Slimeediva

    October 2, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    the crown goes to Tania Omotayo, she loots astonishing even without make over.

  31. @Slimeediva

    October 2, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    i meant looks, not (loots)

  32. kokie

    Lovely before and after. So dramatic it is scary. They are all winners

  33. asgrl

    October 2, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Y’all can miss me with that oh I’m natural, i don’t wear make up, how will men know who they are marrying *Side Eye* *Sucks teeth*.

    No one is saying walk around everyday with a full face of foundation, blush and fake lashes up and down. The make overs shown were obviously for specific events/occasions, some of which were televised/photographed. For filming/photography you typically have to pile on more so people don’t look washed out.

    And you all would be the first to say, someone looks haggard or broke if they don’t look put together.

    On a regular day, if you have great skin, a little bit of powder to mattify any oils, mascara and blush is okay. If you have discolorations or are hyper-pigmented, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a little tinted moisturizer, powder, mascara and gloss.

    every before picture is horrible. misi looked the best. makeup is a blessing to some people, but overuse makes u look older and paler without it.

  37. Naomi Usman

    October 3, 2013 at 12:03 am

    wait o!! if their faces look like this w/out the make up, i’m afraid to see what they will look like in the morning or when they are eating sugarcane……….

    TANIA!…..ya’ll be on about natural beauty….give it a rest please…nobody cares to see lumps and bumps all in the name of natural beauty.either you fix/treat your face or cover it with make up…like if ya’ll should see these celebrities in their “natural state” in an event,you wont come on here and scream WELP!!!…enough with the hypocritical talk and give it a rest…


    October 3, 2013 at 1:34 am

    Great work as always. Love the last look so much.

  40. Bee

    October 3, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Nice make-over JJB BUT MiszPosh Makeovers sure has better Before and After shots biko. Except for Tania’s, the brows aint perfect, the eye-shadow applications are to me commonplace. Don’t get it twisted, they’re lovely, but somewhat ordinary. A non-MUA could effortlessly come with them. Wish I could post some Miszposh pictures here for rating, actually saved many for practice..hehe

    JJB sweetie, peachy stuffs you got here trust me, really can do better. mwah!

    I know, ladies who wear light makeup to sleep bcos they are too afraid to show their no makeup face. makeup is art to some and to others it highlight their features or enhances their beauty. Every woman looks slightly different without makeup or with makeup on but some look drastically different. I’ve tried the heavy makeup and it just does not look good on me. So, I stick to powder, eyeliner, mascara(i naturally have long eyelashes and grew it more with castor oil, si its thick and dark) and that’s my makeup routine everyday and also to events.
