BN Bridal Beauty: The Albino Model Makeover | iPosh Looks



It’s not just another edition of BN Bridal Beauty, it’s a special one!

Ifeoma Adefemi of iPosh Looks, took Instagram by storm with this makeover of albino model, Chinwe, AKA Albinorella.Nigeria-Albino Bridal Beauty Shoot iPosh LooksToday, Ifeoma tells BN Weddings how she was inspired by her model’s confidence, and the impact the shoot has had.

“I stumbled on Chinwe’s Instagram page and was thrilled at how she lives her life to the fullest. She had this confidence around her and to really be honest I was tripped!

She always says this statement that I am yet to get over about being albino, “I AM JUST ANOTHER SHADE OF BLACK!”

She loves herself and so I asked myself, “How can I encourage her, make her feel extremely good and also encourage others?” I sent her a direct message telling her I was a big fan and offered her a makeup treat, which @Herthesir_Concepts and @JasBeadsNJewels helped out with on very short notice.

I have never done makeup for an albino before, so for me I was taking up a challenge/making a damsel really happy. She was sceptical of the outcome and to be honest I was also scared. I was even afraid to upload it on my page, but I found the courage to, and I’m glad I did.

Afterwards, Chinwe sent me a message saying I made her touch lives. She has been getting calls from mothers with albino kids and she indeed feels the shoot was really more than just a shoot.”

We agree – Ifeoma’s inspiration is to our delight today as we present the two different looks – a rich maroon which made the model look regal, and a warm blue tone, accentuated by corals.

      Nothing wrong with “Yoruba gele” as you put it, but Chinwe is not Yoruba. She is Igbo as is the makeup artist.

    June 26, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    I don’t like it. I don’t see any trace of her albinism, which is so much a part of her, in the made up photo. And why should she not be living her life??? Because she’s an albino, she’s not expected to be human. GTFO. I get the challenge in highlighting her features but this person completely pancaked her face in that I cannot see the albino person in the before pic. For me, this is akin to lightening a dark person in photos.

    • Sunshine

      June 26, 2015 at 1:33 pm

      I’m sorry what exactly is the ‘trace of her albinism’?

    • Tolu

      June 26, 2015 at 1:53 pm

      I honestly gey whre u’re coming from Tunmi, and i said as much myself… Ifeoma happens to be my friend, nd shes NO DOUBT extremely good at what she does. But i wandered about chinwe’s gold eyebrow… Had to go back to the befre pics to be sure what color her original brows are. The only trace of her “albinoism” is the hair we see at her temples… As a rule, i generally think makeup should enhance rather than make one look unrecognizable.
      Ditto for MUAs that use foundation to totally disguise tribal marks…


      June 26, 2015 at 5:05 pm

      SMH..U get where shes coming From.”.ifeoma is actually ur friend”..y dont u people appreciate things and move on..must u look for fault in everything…eeiiiiyssshhh…mo gbe idi fun yin..ifeoma is actually ur friend and ure looking for the models albino be u suppose first appreciate ur friends job..u don open d girl armpit see if her albino hair don disappear..Ndi ara..Ifeoma ia actually my friend” SHORONIYEN

      Tolu, have you ever considered that some ladies do not have eyebrows at all, not talking about scanty but nada? My colleague once came to the office without her make-up on and I shuddered and asked why she had to scrape it all off, only for her to say that she has never had eyebrows! Meanwhile, loads of ladies these days scrape off the eyebrows in order to achieve ”look”.
      My point is, I really do not understand why ”the trace of her albinism” has to be shown in her eyebrows that may naturally be non-existent or she just decided to scrape off. I love the transformation, I love her infectious laugh and smile and I think you and Tunmi should too.
      Finally,Ifeoma, your work is excellent! I wish I knew you when I got married. I had to clean off what my MUA painted on my face and went to church almost bare-faced because it was such a mess.

    • Tolu

      June 27, 2015 at 11:00 am

      Spanish Guitar… Thanks ? that’s some way to look at it!
      Madame “Ifeoma is actually my friend” YOU ARE BITTER!!! life is too short to be “that” bitter. Chief whip! Epele oo. Smeone made an observation like we are all entitlled to. Nd it made sense… No be social media be this? No one ws even abusive. Bikko take several seats! Its nt that serious.

      June 26, 2015 at 2:17 pm

      Hi Tunmi, in as much as i understand where you are coming from, i am sure Chinwe was given some choice as to what she would like. If he didn’t like the outcome, these pictures won’t be up for you and me to see. The simple point is she looks beautiful and is happy with how she looks. What or how we feel she should look like doesn’t really matter in the scheme of things…

      Well done Ifeoma. Chinwe looks lovely!

      What do you mean by ‘no trace of her albinism’? Abeg it’s not by force to criticize.

    She’s beautiful with and without make up. Very nice features. Her eyes aren’t typical albino eyes though, they are dark and not hazel. Very nice. Bless her.

      true dat.
      and it’s a lovely showcase of Naija fashion.
      that said, dark-skinned people use so much make-up they look same as the albino model after make-up. what is this make-up idea? to make everybody look like a photo? as in i look like everyone and look like no one?

    I think someone needs to create a make up brand for albinos. Because the products used here made her look like a light skinned person.

    • Spanish Guitar

      June 26, 2015 at 8:31 pm

      Errrrr…pardon my perceived ignorance. Are Albinos dark-skinned people? Smh! Some people must definitely find a fault in everything no matter how ”perfect” those things might be.

    June 27, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    i don’t get why are people so surprised, it is just another makeup session. and I don’t get why the make up artist was surprised that she lived a normal fulfilled life? aren’t albinos human beings?!!

  38. girlwithalbinorelatives

    June 27, 2015 at 11:42 pm

    I think she looks great. Those with comments about eyebrows n masking albino traits, abeg park well. Don’t you look different when you have your makeup done professionally?
    @chinwe: you rock
    @iposh: great job as usual

    Smashing! She does look like an albino after the makeup. I love the hairline showing her Goldie locks and it’s definitely in her eyes. A total look from head to toe will show that the make up did not take away her albinism . I think beauty was enhanced her and I’m sure if she goes out for a function she would have adequate sun block to protect her well taken skin. Well done on the ‘Test trial make over’

    Great makeover. I think the model is gorgeous with and without makeup. Suggestion to her though, to deal with redness on her face, use St Ives green tea scrub, or any other green tea or cooling products. They should help ?

  46. Debs!

    August 3, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    I love the confidence, beautiful eyes (before makeup) and the transformation!
    Good job to iposh, Chinwe’s inward beauty got accentuated!
    Confidence is a very beautiful and priceless accessory mehn!
