Yes, Albino Ladies Love Makeup Too! Ara by Laide & OAM Foundation raise Awareness through Makeovers

Ara by Laide and OAM Foundation Albino Makeup - BellaNaija - November 2015001 We have something special today – and it’s going to help not just aspiring and expert makeup artists, but albino women everywhere who have run into difficulties with applying makeup.

Many makeup artists do not know the right products to use on albino women. In the end, many ladies with albinism might be frustrated by these poor attempts.

Nigerian makeup artist – Olaide Banjo (CEO, Ara by Laide) has teamed up with Onome Akinlolu Majaro‘s foundation – OAM Foundation which advocates and raises awareness for people with albinism. With the power of makeup, they are dishing out useful techniques and tips for albino women and makeup artists. They seek to not only show you the essential makeup products and colours to use, but to show amazing looks on all their models.

Here’s what Olaide had to say on the collaboration;

Makeup is something that every girl wants to know how to do. We all know albinos have very tender skin. While doing their makeup, you have to be extremely careful because any little pressure from your fingertips can redden their skin.

There is a lot of discrimination against albinos. They are called different names, and people forget we are all the humans despite our skin colour . I think it’s important for albinos to note what suits them best, how to apply the right make up and which products to use, including ensuring it matches their skin tone and neck.

Check out the photos of the albino models. They look beautiful both with and without makeup.

    They are beautiful and I agree pple need to stop shaming them. The eye makeup did no justice to the first lady. I think a more subtle color would take the attention off her eyes. Please dnt crucify me.. just an honest observation

    When I first submitted my previous comment, I got a message that said,”You are posting comments to fast, slow down” I was shocked because that was rude! I clicked “Post your comment” again and I got the proper message, “Comment awaiting moderation”. Anyhow, if Na play, make Una stop am Abeg. I hardly comment here. If you’re tired of my few comments, no give me the option to comment again. Na wa o!!! Forget you guys man!

    they’re so pretty and the makeup really emphasises their beautiful eye colours. this is what many Nigerian girls are spending thousands on (light skin mainly and coloured contacts) and these ladies have been given freely by God. Please they should rock their beauty and not ever let anyone make them feel insecure about the way they look. the girls yabbing them are the same pple spending thousands to look like them. Rock on girls. you are beautiful!!
