“Immediately Yinka finalised her wedding dates she called me and said, “Dodos you have to beat my face for my introduction, pre-wedding shoot, traditional and white wedding. I. DO. NOT. WANT. ANYONE. ELSE. to touch my face except you because I trust you.”

She looked absolutely perfect.Nigerian Wedding Makeup 2015 - DArtiste by Dodos - BellaNaija - d1Two days before her traditional wedding Yinka called again, “Dodos ah everything has to be ON FLEEK o!”, she had even had a facial a couple of weeks earlier, so her skin was perfectly ready for me.

We decided on her traditional and white wedding looks after she’d shown me some pictures and she let me work my magic. It was very important to me that she was calm and relaxed so even though her mum called to hurry us up because of traffic, I tried my best to keep her calm because I really wanted her to be able to take in how beautiful she looked when she looked into the mirror. Thankfully, when she saw it, she was obsessed with her makeup. She probably took over a hundred selfies.

We went for a clean, subtle look and paired it with soft pink ombre lips to complement her white and gold traditional attire; she looked absolutely divine.Nigerian Wedding Makeup 2015 - DArtiste by Dodos - BellaNaija - d2For her English wedding we maintained the subtle clean look, I gave her pale pink lips which complemented her dress style so well. I was really glad she loved everything.

      it’s like there’s a uniform style of makeup for brides now….its getting boring and quite repititive…every bride has a different head shape, skin tone and so on…why will you now put them all in the same kind of head tie, traditional wear, eyebrows(yeah!!! i said it)…not errybody’s eyebrows need to be “”on fleek””, different faces, different eyebrows shapes. Naija makeup artists, pls aWake from thy Slumber.

      I don’t understand what you’re saying because looking good will always be in style. it’s a person’s wedding day???!!!! why won’t everything be on the fleekest of fleeks! your wedding day is not the day to deviate and experiment with ‘other forms of gele-tying’ or ‘other shapes of unfleek eyebrows’.

      As in. I think I should just give up n make up altogether cos I simply do not have the patience to apply all these things on this very long list on my face just to be on fleek and I generally only wear make up on Sundays to church 🙁

      I think that’s perfectly fine abeg. This kind of makeup is for rare occasions. It’s better to spend all the other days working on your actual skin so that when there’s no makeup on, people are not shocked by the difference.
