3 exceptional things we don’t know about you
- A perfectionist
- Very organised
- Very reliable
Can we get to know you? (Bio, educational background, growing up)
My name is Doyin Ubani, born in Lagos, birthday 13th October. My primary education was at Nazareth school, FESTAC town Lagos; Secondary school at Federal Government Girls College, Onitsha in Anambra state; First degree in psychology from university of Lagos, second degree in management from university of Salford, UK.
I am married with a 4year old daughter. Had a lot of fun growing up, more fun than the children of today! LOL
Why make up artistry?
After a brief stint working in stock broking I decided to turn my passion for makeup into a business! I have always had a thing for colours and beauty right from secondary school! I took fine arts right up to senior secondary! I remember how I always want to apply makeup for friends all the time!
What is the genesis of Chloe’s makeover?
Chloe’s makeover started in august 2007 after I completed my professional makeup training course at BM|PRO under the tutelage of Banke Meshida Lawal. I opened my studio in June 2009. My passion for makeup drives me to do what I do. Am content doing what I love! I can’t complain.
It’s no news that make-up artistry is one of the highest paying hand jobs at the moment. Can you testify to this?
Well errm, make-up artistry has got its moments. It depends on the kind of job you get. Some pay well, some are just average. The kind of pay you get for a wedding make over is different from the pay you get for a fashion show…regardless of the amount; it pays to do your best. You never can tell who’ll love it.
Whose make-up products give your clients the perfect makeover?
For that perfect makeover I use Mac products and bm|pro products – Ranging from face primers to foundation, concealer, powder, lip glosses, lipsticks, eye shadows etc. I use the best.
What would you rather do when you are not painting faces?
When am not working, I love to relax at home, watching TV with my daughter, browse and chat on my blackberry!
For anyone who would love to venture into makeup, the truth is it has to be in you, you’ve got to have a passion for it! Once you have discovered it’s in you; then you build on it! You learn new things every day; improve on what you already know so go out there and make the world a beautiful place!
