BN Beauty: Toke, Osas, Toju & More! 5 Makeup Looks that Slayed at the ELOY Awards 2015!



Last night’s Exquisite Lady Of the Year (ELOY) Awards was filled with glitz, glam, awards winning moments, red carpet fabulosity and of course, beautiful ladies.

From Toke Makinwa to Osas Ajibade – our female celebs enlisted the services of some of the best in the business to make sure their eyeliners were board straight, lipsticks were popping, eyebrows were the fleekest and hair on point. And we noticed.

Even though the night had so many stars shining bright, these 5 ladies caught our attention and have kept it all day long. So, keep scrolling as BN Beauty shows you the 5 ladies who slayed the ELOY Awards with their makeup game.


Osas Ajibade

Osas Ighodaro - BellaNaija - November 2015
This was definitely one of our favourite looks of the night!

Osas looked radiant with makeup by Doranne Beauty and we can’t help but fall in love with her even more (if that’s even possible). We loved her pulled back hair created by Bernard Smiles and her dress by Moofa was a killer! Can you say 10/10.

Toke Makinwa

Toke Makinwa - BellaNaija - November 2015
All hail Nigeria’s queen of selfies! Toke looked ever so gorgeous and reminded us that you don’t need a million dollar dress to slay.

Dressed in a stunning white Asos dress, she rocked the red carpet with tried and trusted makeup by Doranne Beauty. Toke has really been loving the matte lip lately, and she pulled off her signature look – a lightly contoured face, super neat eyebrows, sultry eyes and an autumn lip. Love it!

Michelle Dede

Michelle Dede - BellaNaija - November 2015 Joining our list of uber-fab ladies of ELOY is the talented Michelle Dede. Her endorsement with Emmaus Beauty must be giving her some amazing skin because she glowing.

With makeup by celebrity favourite, Anita Adetoye of Anita Brows, we can’t help but love her classic makeup look. Dangerously sexy winged eyes, starey-eyed tear ducts and a hot red lip – Gorgeous!


Layole Oyatogun
Layole Oyatogun - BellaNaija - November 2015

What do you do when you don’t want to rock a red or pink lip? You go nude (or at least a version of nude).

TV personality Layole Oyatogun looked very simple and pretty with makeup by Faceville Makeovers. Her brown and tan orange lip is all kinds of fab and we love how the look didn’t overshadow her bold dress!

Toju Foyeh

Toju Foyeh - BellaNaija - November 2015 If we were to pick one word to describe the winner of ELOY’s Fashion Designer of the Year, Toju Foyeh, it would be ‘poised’. Toju is a fan of classic yet sexy looks, and that was exactly what she channeled with her makeup last night.

Her look was created by Elaine Shobanjo of Shomya, and it featured a fab pin-up look – a bold red lip, a contoured face and sultry eyes complete with glitter of course.


The night was filled with many more beauties, check them all out together with red carpet and event photos here.

    we really dont know good makeup in Naij…is that what naija women are really going for now, they will all keep looking like painted dolls if they continue this so called fierce make up looks smh

    Asides Juliet Ibrahim and the glitter eye shadow, the other ladies shades feel similar. So it doesn’t really feel too much on them. I like Michelle Dede’s look with the red lipstick best. I hope people will comment on the looks though and leave Osas hair for her.

      I scrolled back to look for Juliet Ibrahim because I didn’t see her when I first looked. Is it Toju Foyeh you are mistaking for Juliet Ibrahim? They don’t even look alike.

    November 30, 2015 at 5:10 pm

    They all look trashy to me.

    Osas we know you have natural hair. But please give this lace front a rest. it keeps messing up your look.

    • ATL's finest

      November 30, 2015 at 7:10 pm

      Lol exactly my thoughts! That lace front GATS to go & her eye lashes edges ain’t look all that. But hey I still love her pretty self.

    • Janet

      Praise God someone said it! People are complaining we use “trash” too much, but that is exactly what Osas hair is looking like, trash!!!

      This lacefront has been destroying her look for some time now.

      As stunning as she is!!! It’s only that she is so beautiful we don’t slaughter her like some other celebs. Her natural beauty, outshines the disaster that is on her hair.

      Biko there are plenty weave options she can try. Even wig with closure. But this lacefront must die.

      I can see she doesn’t like silky weave, no problem
      She should buy some kinky straight hair and closure. It will resemble natural hair and look decent!!!

    BN, you people should fear God o!

  7. Bade

    Love Layole’s look That is the best hands down its nothing like the typical Naija make up look at all .Kudos to the make up artist She took the overall look into consideration

  10. Mystique

    November 30, 2015 at 7:07 pm

    Does anyone know the prices of at least one of the popular make up girls in Lagos

  12. Great Lady

    November 30, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    Bolanle is supposed to be on this list. Her makeup was on point.

  13. Bey

    November 30, 2015 at 7:52 pm

    So a professional is supposed to have done this Laoye chicks make up. Okkkkk

  14. niyoola

    November 30, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    Osas’ hair doesn’t look good; her make-up is lovely though.
    Not feeling Toke’s look. Her wig/weave is askew. Her foundation/powder looks too ‘orangey’ and like a ‘fierce-gone-wrong’.
    Love Michelle’s eyes. #Swoon!

  15. CovertNigerian

    November 30, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Surprise, surprise. They have crawled out of their holes with bags full of negativity and self loathing to spill on Bella Naija because they can comment anonymously.

  16. Brenda Yaboaa

    November 30, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    Who knows Toke personally? please advise her to put a stop to bleaching. It is at its peak now, what follows is very unpleasant

  17. Aso Oke

    November 30, 2015 at 10:01 pm

    Layole had the best makeup, she looked the most nature, her makeup accentuates her beauty perfectly

  18. deb

    November 30, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    Michelle’s makeup is hands dowm. As for nana(faceville) I don’t still understand how people patronise her, those brows are hideous. Toke looks like her.

    What is up with the eyebrows??? It is completely unnatural and these ladies are beginning to look like ancient Egyptians— stick to the African look, it is better and easier on the eyes.

    • Belarus

      “The African look” is using charcoal for eyeliner and eye pencil. Please hush. Nigeria’s make up industry is growing rapidly and we should be looking for ways to further improve not tear down.

    All these BN people are full of negative people, they don’t love themselves, so how can they love others. They appears too jealous for my liking. Pls Osas baby, gorgeous is your look, Toke, you look muah, our girls are on point. ??????

    • Ready

      December 2, 2015 at 9:22 am

      Okay Doranne Beauty apprentice. Don’t take feedback o. Not even on your basic English….”all these BN people are full of negative people”

  22. Dee one

    December 2, 2015 at 11:48 am

    Osas pls the lace fronts have to go…. I cringe each time I look at your hair. From your tinsel days til now and it seems to be getting worse.
