Makeup And The Gele

The gele is the crown of the African woman. It is a traditional head gear that is worn by Nigerian / African women around the world.

Whether you are the bride, or the wedding attendee, your gele and makeup should be simple, yet elegant. Adding to this, it is very essential to note that the makeup choice should not compete with the colour(s) of your gele and outfit in general.

See soem lovely inspiration from kamdolls around the world…xoxo!
