I met Gbemisola, the owner of Hegai & Esther Makeup Tool Store, while I was in Lagos earlier this year at the Excellence in the Industry Seminar for Makeup Artists. During the seminar, I spoke about makeup hygiene and changes that needed to be made in the industry. Inspired by the seminar, she started a campaign for improved hygiene and sanitation practices among Makeup Artists in Nigeria. I couldn’t be happier about this because I think this is a very important and necessary topic.

It was an amazing day and I am soo proud to have been part of this successful event with the super talented Lolade Ogunjimi of Dainty Affairs Beauty. For me, meeting the inspiring and successful speakers, as well as all the makeup artists that attended was the highlight of the seminar.
