    Ohhhhhh boy. Where do I start?
    She looks like she’s going to audition for the kabuki. Make up makes her look like she has some rare medical syndrome. She pushed the envelop alright, she pushed it out of the mail box!!!!
    The designer did good with the dress.

    I don’t see any reason why she should fire her makeup artist. She obviously has eyes and must have looked at the mirror before step out looking like Ayamatagah!!! smh.

    Tiwa don’t u have eyes to see u look horrible with this make up.

    love the outfit, but hair n make up is a big NO……

    Dear Tiwa, red lipstick would have done justice to the dress, why! why! why!

  20. Nene

    September 1, 2014 at 8:25 am

    Tiwa is a pretty lady but her make-up is always off.
    A deep pink lipstick would have contrasted beautifully with her white dress.
    The dress is quite demure and lovely but it doesn’t match the gladiator heels at all. I know she was going for edgy with the shoes above but a kick-ass,pointy black/white 5″ pump(preferably snake skin) would have done the job better.

    Goth make-up is for very special events like halloween or the Met Gala.

    Her outfit is beautiful but that make up is horrific.

    I like the dress. I haven’t decided about the shoes. The makeup is just a no for me.

      She had to raid that L.Smith guys designs because Kim K wore his dress a couple of weeks back. Who are they trying to impress? So much copying and competition! It must be such a hard life!

  34. Hurperyeahmie

    winch kind make up be this?

  35. No wonder

    September 1, 2014 at 10:24 am

    She looks like the devil that the media portrays. That’s what came to my mind – devil look alike

  36. sika

    September 1, 2014 at 10:39 am

    The make up is horrible. She looks like she has a rare genetic disorder. Please take it easy with the ‘face beat’ phenomenon..its quite tacky. The dress is beautiful..i love the shoes too. That hair..Lawd that hair..doesn’t go with the style of dress honey. But tiwa on the real..easy with the make up are very pretty and sometimes your make up artists make you look ‘un-pretty’..i believe its supposed to be the other way round?

    no no

  38. Tinto

    Tiwa needs to FIRE her make up artist and be more versatile with her hair!! Tired of seeing the waist length Ombre hair with baby hair in front….

  39. Ohgawd

    September 1, 2014 at 11:06 am

    Oh my…Tiwa gives good laughs for days…what a joke..

  40. SpeakTheTruth

    September 1, 2014 at 11:09 am

    Gosh!! Which kain ‘ojuju kalaba’ make up be this. Lovely dress, but the make up is just painful.

  41. Loulou

    September 1, 2014 at 11:35 am

    I am sure if she does her make up herself, she’ll look so much better… Lovely dress tho

  42. dataztecchic

    September 1, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    kk,i actually love d makeup and hair,its d dress that makes her legs look stumpy,wish it was shorter though.still love her.

  43. Bimpe

    September 1, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Lovely dress… how ever the lipstick could have been red. if you wanted black lipstisk, her stylist could have at least done the right thing by putting her hair up, or doing better with the hair. the hair doesnt compliment the edgy look hence the failure of her look.

  44. makeupbyebi

    September 1, 2014 at 12:10 pm

    lol to all the commentaries! BN visitors are funny oh.
    This Nova dress was a great choice and the shoes, but the make up must have been done deliberately for the edgy look…. even though is not Halloween (@author unkonwn) .. lol ….Tiwa must have approved. So well done.

  45. leigh

    Tiwa u are such an entertainer. U make me laugh for Are u serious with that halloween makeup?

  48. Eyitayo

    September 1, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    Yes to the Dress and No for the make-up…Tiwa looks better without make-up….

  49. Eyitayo

    September 1, 2014 at 2:56 pm

    and that Sandal is to die for….too beautiful

  50. Mary

    September 1, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    i really wonder why people believe so much in their make up artist, why would you go out with a face like this, don’t you check yourself up in the mirror and tell your make-up to make some adjustments before stepping out. your face looks horrible, wrong foundation, hair is a no too. dress looks lovely and shoe is good too.

  51. Jhennique

    September 1, 2014 at 3:20 pm

    Lovely Lovely dress but why is her face like that? who did this to you Tiwa? those shoes? undecided. but i feel like some red or polka or pvc loubs would have done it more justice. but hey, what do i know?

  52. Style.

    September 1, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    But her whole point is not to look normal, only she dresses Nigerian ( the fake style that pleases them that they call style and pushes the boundaries wrongly in another avenues) Tiwa if you want to go gaga go GAGA, go Rihanna and do with panache. Nigerians will complain when you are not dressed in their regular bush ways, (Kim Kardashianny almost ) and that’s cool those with eyes(Not Emmy Collins cos frankly he’s just as bad, just a good eye for finishing) ) will still see, but you do and you miss it still., because you want to push boundaries, but you are afraid to push boundaries because you want to look like that bush way or maybe don’t know how to. Fire your team and invest in yourself. Top of the range baby, you have a good body, face, bring it out fiercely and fearlessly. You don’t have much time, this is entertainment.

    horrible pic

  59. cos I say so

    September 1, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    Gothic look anyone? That’s obviously what she was going for here!
    New York will understand and that’s where she was

    • Jazzy

      September 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm

      Nope. I’m from NY…born and bred. If u’re gonna do goth then dont mix it with class….her outfit and the makeup didn’t gel at all. Plus even the gothic look she was going for was done wrong! Wrong foundations too.

    September 1, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    the items are good, like, it looks like a nice dress. but the photo?
    let’s focus on other things besides the appearance, like, you said it was the NEA awards? we win anything?

  62. Oma

    September 1, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    The dress looks amazing but the dark lipstick and white eye liner is a no-no for me mehn! It doesn’t do her face justice at all.. have y’all seen Tiwa without makeup? She looks amazing!!!! It’s not every lady that makeup suits and that includes Tiwa. A very subtle/natural makeup would fit her,not the gothic/edgy look her makeup artists makes her wear…

  63. Ephi

    September 1, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    This is definitely not one of Tiwa’s best looks


      September 1, 2014 at 9:45 pm

    Those shoes are such a nasty destraction. No clue what look she was going for exactly. Such a pretty lady. She should change her team or something

  70. stylebymolekor

    September 4, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    Her look is confusing- between the goth make up, the feminine dress and the edgy shoes! like nene said, she should have worn white pointy toe pumps to go. those shoes make her legs look short and I just don’t like them with the dress. Also her make up is bad for the look, I would have suggested red lips and her hair loosely tied up so we can focus on that awesome dress!

    she looks horrible these days
