This post is about my first editorial! Yay! I worked with geniuses in their fields. Made Magazine in their October edition had Lola Savage, singer, actress and general awesome human being, gracing their cover and I did her makeup.
She was so nice to work with and her skin is amazing.
Awesome thing about this shoot was the spontaneity and audaciousness. Lola Savage, mom of 2, (with that body) wore matching lingerie in Ebuttemetta. I never wear bikinis. I get uncomfortable even seeing people in them. Unless it’s a movie, of course. Lol. But she didn’t as much as flinch.
You can only imagine the stares we got and the Yoruba women calling after us that she should cover up. As in, “Kini gbogbo rubbish”. “Ahn, Omo yi, omashe oo”. Lol, I hope I didn’t murder the language so much.
It was an amazing team and that was why we were able to pull it off.
