TAYO AT KUBECHI’S CLOSET FAIR
When we first started My Makeup we started off with just selling MAC cosmetics because we realised that the average Nigerian woman was beginning to pay more attention to her appearance, she was beginning to understand what it is to look and feel good but did not want to break the bank in order to do that.
Is this what you envisioned you wanted to do all along, or did you just fall into it?
What’s your favourite aspect of owning a makeup outfit?
My favorite part is consulting with clients and educating them on what they need based on their skin type and problem areas. I also like blogging and doing makeup tutorials
How has the journey been so far?
The best way to describe our journey is “slow but steady” there are times where we feel overwhelmed in terms of the response we have gotten from people but we have enjoyed every step of it
Who/what inspires you and why?
I am inspired by other beauty bloggers, I am inspired by makeup artistes and fashion as a whole in terms of the way it changes and having to keep up with it on a daily basis
What are the main strength of you and your team?
Information is the reason why we are still in business. We keep our ears to the ground in terms of knowing what the customer wants and we are very quick to react to the change in customer demand, fashion trends etc
What does the future hold for My Makeup
Our goal is to be Nigeria’s version of Sephora
Any project coming up that you would like to share with us?
We have tons of stuff coming up this year
My full names are Temitayo Sojebe. I am a retailer, a blogger, a fashion enthusiast, makeup artiste, a wife, beauty consultant all rolled into one
