RECREATE GENEVIEVE NNAJI’S LOOK WITH BIMPE ONAKOYA



I have no idea why I don’t post more content like this on the blog. I LOVE when a makeup artist breaks down the products used in creating a look! When I saw this look Aunty Bimps created I was absolutely blown away and I am excited she’s agreed to share the product breakdown and what’s more, it’s got less than TEN steps!
I even got her to tell you the inspiration behind this look: 
“I created a minimalistic take on classic midcentury glamour. The skin is youthful and fresh with a barely made-up finish, punctuated with a bold and modern stained lip” – Bimpe Onakoya


Step 1: Warm the skin with Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation, even sweeping it gently across the lips to neutralize pigment.

Step 2: Highlight the under eyes with concealer to brighten and minimize shadows.

Step 3: Hide any blemish and in perfection in skin with Face Studio Master Conceal and set entire face with a light layer of Clear Smooth All in One Powder.

Step 4: Define clear angles and shapes of your face by applying highlighter across high planes of the face:  the bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, cheekbones and Cupid’s bow, followed by using Clear Smooth All in One Powder in Cacao on the cheekbones, outer brow along the sides of the nose and outer edges of the face, blending the bronzer and contour cream with a brush.

Step 5: Apply nude eyeshadow from The Blushed Nudes Palette across the lid then layer the Clear Smooth All in One Powder in Cacao along the eye crease, blending outwards. Trace across the upper lash line beginning at inner corners of eyes to the outer corner with Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Blackest Black. Dab Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24Hr in Barely Branded the inner corners of the eyes for pop ad finish with a double coat of Rocket Volume Mascara. (Optional: Apply 2 layers of strip lashes on eyes).

Step 6: Fill in the brow to perfection and then gently define around the brows with concealer.

Step 7: Line the lips and fill with Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Mesmerizing Magenta.

I’m sure you guys noticed that all the products used in creating the look are Maybelline. As their brand ambassador, this is expected and what’s more you can get these products at the newly launched Maybelline store in Surulere which I shared about in this post here

    Nice, but seriously though MUA's and their words…''I created a minimalistic take on classic midcentury glamour. The skin is youthful and fresh with a barely made-up finish, punctuated with a bold and modern stained lip"… ''rolling eyes''… but the look is lovely 🙂
