In staying true to that vision, we have produced 1820 makeup artists. We support them and their businesses through mentorship and after training programs.

The highlight of the event was the speed mentoring session were guests were given the opportunity to ask questions and be given valuable advise by Lola Maja, Tara-Fela Durotoye, Bimpe Onakoya, Banke Meshida-Lawal and Bolanle Okusanya-Feyita.

When asked about her thoughts on the Beauty Bruncheon, Stylist & Lifestyle Entrepreneur, Veronica Ebe- Odeku said,  “It was really amazing! It is such a positive and encouraging intiative for the Lifestyle industry. I am pleased to have attended and next year, I hope to hear more speeches from veterans in the industry”.

Ocho Adaji, a Make-up-artist who attended all the way from Kaduna said, “It was fun, it was definitely worth my trip, I thoroughly enjoyed it”. One of the major reasons behind the Beauty Bruncheon was to facilitate necessary conversations, when asked if that was accomplished, Beauty Entrepreneur & Presenter, Liz Yemoja said “ Yes! I was in the midst of likeminded people and loved the general atmosphere. I definitely made new contacts. As for partnerships, Glam Lashes will now be stocked at House of Tara studios!”

Germany’s ARD TV crew was around to capture all the fun and exciting moments at the brunch!

It was a very positive and inspiring environment and we already can’t wait for the second edition of the beauty bruncheon.
