Exclusive: Lola Omotayo Okoye is the First Cover Girl of BM|Pro Covers



BM|Pro Covers | Lola Omotayo Okoye | BellaNaija.Mag-1-bmproBeauty at its best! Lola Omotayo Okoye is the cover girl for the debut edition of BM|PRO Covers.

Hear from the lead makeup artist at Banke Meshida-Lawal about the fab new project,

“With so many photos in our archives we came up with this – it focuses on makeup and how we’ve created the look of our cover girl.

Our creative director, Yomi Black says “We will work with photographers who capture the essence of beauty.”

Having worked with Henry of BigH Studios, he was our first choice for this project.

Based in Abuja, working with him is such a fantastic experience. A good listener, he interprets his artist’s brief and with suggestions of how it can be better.

Our cover girl, Lola, a true lady, always a great sport, beautiful inside and outside. Her Cancer Care project was one of the many things we discussed as we did makeup one sunny afternoon at BM|Pro Studios.BM|Pro Covers | Lola Omotayo Okoye | BellaNaija.BML 008-2magAs she sat in my chair with her eyes closed as I applied her liquid eyeliner I couldn’t help but wonder at her very kind heart. All around us cancer is so real! Deciding to do her bit for victims, I couldn’t help but applaud her. I’m sure as I hugged her “Thank you” for allowing me paint her face, she must have wondered why the hug was so tight!”

Look out for future editions of BM|Pro Covers on!

    Feminine yes. Happy no. I can’t aspire to those eyes…they are wells of something deep.

    exactly my thought when i took a glance at the pics, those eyes are deep like they are in pains of something. like crying out for help. but the make up is cool..
