Style MANIA Beauty Editorial - BellaNaija - January 2016

Are you ready for a beautiful stroll down memory lane?

Inspired by grains & spices, we present this timeless beauty editorial that was featured in MANIA magazine a few months back. With makeup by the super talented Bimpe Onakoya and photography by the amazing Kelechi Amadi-Obi, the beauty shoot is one that we will have in our books for a looong time.

A lot of work was definitely put into this editorial which shows the models’- Bunmi & Kim, with artsy makeup, buried in tons of rice, beans, groundnuts, mustard seeds and more grains and spices.

    the photoshoot is very inspiring, colourful and beautiful. i have one problem. the eyelashes.
    i have seen beauty shots like this and your eye sees everything, the colours and the grains even. why can’t the lashes be made more full and more natural looking. I see how sparse they look and it keeps drawing my eyes from the beautiful eyeshadow work the MUA did. love it
