A self-taught makeup artist Kofoworola Fagbemi aka Kellasmakeup started her business three years ago.

Coming from a supportive family, becoming a makeup artist wasn’t a challenging transition after finishing university.  Her client base is a mixture of older and younger women, specifically new brides. Currently with an office in Ibadan, she plans on expanding her brand to Lagos and setting up shop there too.  With her mind on taking over the makeup industry, her advice to aspiring makeup artists is not to sell yourself short just because you’re trying to pave a way for your business. Don’t under price yourself because at the end of the day if you do what you do well, people will still call you. Study your environment. Ibadan is different from Lagos. Ibadan people are not patient; they do not attach too much value to things and need more convincing for why they should choose you.  Relating to your clients is vital. Package yourself.  Be prudent and don’t get carried away.
