There is a reason why beauty is one of the most talked-about and sung subjects in music and not to mention, a leading sector in all businesses. Everyone wants to feel beautiful, regardless of gender. Beauty is self-care, it is the care given to your heart, body and mind.
Over the weekend, we spoke to celebrity makeup artist Tope Onayemi of Adella Makeup and she shared her beauty and skincare secrets with us from her grooming regimen to makeup removal tips and a lot more.
Beauty is beyond makeup products because it is ultimately how you feel about yourself.
And sometimes, we do need a nudge, tip and maybe guidance on what/how to take care of
ourselves; which is exactly where we come in.
Read on all her exciting tips below and be sure to adopt some.

FAVOURITE BEAUTY PRODUCT AND WHY
I do like to think I’m spontaneous. I love a lot of things and I’m open to trying new things too, but I do know there are some products I will always pick up like the Benefit Brow products that I am obsessed with!
FAVOURITE SKINCARE PRODUCT AND WHY
I don’t think I have a favourite beauty product. Right now I am loving the Ordinary skin range -100% Squalane, Niacinamide, Rosehip oil.
There are some products that are like a tradition for me, like the Mac Essential Oils and Studio Moisture cream, I just have to buy them. Garnier 3 in 1 face wash and of course my trustee Black Soap I get from my beautician.

YOUR QUICK MAKEUP REMOVAL TIP
Wipes and Garnier Micellar water or cotton pads. Give it a few seconds to break down the
products on your skin and wipe off. Super quick and easy.
FAVOURITE SPA TREATMENT AND WHY
Hammam Bath: physical and mental relaxation. Helps relieve stress and at the same time leaving my skin glowing and healthy-looking. And the massage is a bonus.
FAVOURITE SCENT AND WHY
I live for smells. Coco Chanel is a tradition and Hermès twilly is a recent addiction. I love the fact that they are strong scents and sweet at the same time. You smell delicious all through the day without topping up.
HAIR CARE TIPS AND WHY
-Find a hair salon that cares about your hair and keeps up with your journey. It has been
wondrous for me. I treat my hair in between my visits but it’s nothing compared to the care they give my hair. Absolutely love the texture of my hair and they make me love it even more.
FAVOURITE HAIR CARE PRODUCTS
Avlon products- Nairobi Wondrous hair pomade and Leave-in conditioner.
WIGS OR WEAVE
My Short hair always. No wigs, No weaves.
