For the first time in history, a Nigerian makeup artist would be handling a show at the New York Fashion (NYFW). We are indeed proud Bimpe Onakoya who is Nigeria’s artistic director for Maybelline New York.
Bimpe is an award-winning makeup artist that is known for her amazing talent for runway, brides, party rockers and shoots. She began her journey four years ago at the NYFW scene. During that period, she created amazing looks for Jason Wu, Suno, DKNY, Lacoste, J Mendel and many others.
We would say that 2018 is her year as she would be creating looks for Laguan Smith (a New York based luxury fashion designer for women). She will also be a major makeup artist for the Rochambeau presentation and she will be working on Adrana Lima.
We honestly can’t wait to see the look she would create!
