No I am not talking about IK.

Live at the MMR2013 pre-party yesterday, Thursday 19th December 2013, was BET 106 & Park co-host, American reality TV star and fashion designer, Angela Simmons. The star, who arrived earlier on that day {click here to read}, was present at the MMR pre-party with her entourage and had her makeup done by Nigerian Celebrity makeup artist Joyce Jacobs.

Joyce is known for her beauty looks for Tiwa Savage, Milen Magese, Waje, Toke Makinwa, Alexandra Burke and now Angela Simmons; maybe she’s going to be the go-to makeup artist for international acts coming to Nigeria. For the evening she gave Angela a lightly contoured face with a slight smolder around the eyes and bold red lips.

Also present at the event were Wizkid, LAX (of Starboy Records), DJ Xclusive on the turntables and many more. Keep refreshing BN for all the scoop.

    Looks like something she did herself, nothing special. Joyce Jacob usually does fantastic work, guess this was not the usual professional makeup thingy.

    Really this girl looked even finer in her arrival pics than this! I’m sorry but the mua made this girl age! Too much makeup is not really cool.

    angela is stunning…its difficult for a make up artist to get it wrong on her! JJB did her usual though…over highlighting and fake looking eyebrows

    She looks just the same way as Toke when JJB does her makeup —– Over made up like a doll. I am certainly not a fan

    I think Joyce was really out to impress Angela and got it so wrong. She looks almost twice her age with that makeup. Come to think of it is it not this same Joyce who did the trial makeup session on Lola Omotayo after her engagement was announced that aged her several years…

    Angela is a very pretty girl, this make up makes her look old. Angela is prettier without make up. She doesn’t need to look fake and bleached. Those naija girls should learn from her. E.G :Toke . so JJB keep your make up , Angela already has natural beauty.

    I am not a fan of JJB or whatever she calls herself as an mua. I have always hated her loud overbearing makeup. I am not a fan of all the makeup artists in Nigeria actually. Well except for my darling Banke who always gets it right. Banke never wears bright loud makeup for anyone. U can tell Joyce was trying so hard to impress Angela. I am sure in Angela’s mind she was thinking like wth is this. In America, hollywood celebs wear alot of makeup but it is made to look natural and sweet and not the Nike tick eyebrows they do in Nigeria. Joyce only toke Makinwa appreciates your makeup. Its always loud and tacky. Run to Banke for advice

    It is just too loud and comes across fake………. Angela now looks like a made up christmas tree . Joyce needs to reduce the war paint or stick to natural blended colours

    oluwa o…… i hope joyce is not reading this sha.. well she’s smiling to the bank. naija dey over hype things. she charges 150k for one month training too please how can she be in a category with the likes of SHOMYA BIMPE ONAKOYA DORRAINNE BEAUTY. see how different and stunning tiwa savage looked on her album launch and wedding… why? bcos Bimpe Onakoya did the makeup… #NUFFSAID joyce u have alot to learn still. Love you

      I totally agree with most of what you said but you can’t even add Doranne Beauty into the list along side Bimpe.. She’s not even halfway on her level. Even Shomaya isn’t there yet. You have the elite MUAs of Banke, Bimpe, Lola and Bayo. They are the aunty’s and uncles of the industry then you have the next level down.. the Shomaya, Doranne, Mary Jane, Rhema, David etc and then.. you have the others. Joyce has been elevated too quickly because of her work with Tiwa. Everyone has jumped on the band wagon because of this but they don’t realize when Tiwa herself needs to look “really good” she goes to another MUA. She just uses JJB because she needed someone who would have the time to follow her to all her shows and be her personal MUA. Who do you think did the makeup for the Tiwa & Banky Show.. it wasn’t Joyce… end of story.. With all that said, her makeup is nice, too heavy for most people though, especially on those who are naturally beautiful who don’t need to look like wide eyed barbie dolls. What she did to Tanya Omotayo was just terrible. It aged her truly too much. So just pick your MUA carefully, know who you want and what makeup you like then you can’t go wrong. And INVESTIGATE their prices. So many of these new MUAs are crazy, they’re charging almost if not more than some more senior artists. She certainly isn’t the best we have in Nigeria. Maybe in another 10 years she may have refined her skills and by then, hopefully Nigerians would have gotten over the plastic fantastic nike eyebrow effect.

    Yea so Joyce is definitely not smiling to the bank because
    this makeup was done for free… Yes.. FREE… A lot of folks (not
    just MUA) do complimentary stuff for celebs so they can boost their
    portfolio and that’s what Joyce just did.. Don’t know if it helped
    her or not.

    it was an epic fail. BMPRo would have killed it

  15. Hey

    So it’s the pre-party n not the main show or the grammys. Pls cut Joyce some slack! It might not be her best but she’s defo a vry good make-up artiste to me. Good thing she’s still young, nuff time to gain more useful tips n skills. We never know Angela might hv been very involved dictating what n how she wanted.
