La Mode: How did your career in makeup begin?

Osamu: I never thought makeup would be something i’d take so seriously as I initially took makeup classes in 2006 to while away time when I had a long break between my graduation and when I went for my NYSC. As time progressed after my service year, I began to fall more in love with the art and see it as more than just a hobby. I started practising as a makeup artist in 2007 and opened my studio in 2008.

La Mode: What is your most challenging experience as a makeup artist?

Osamu: As with most service rendering jobs in Nigeria, clients tend not to take my job seriously and that can be a little challenging but over time i’ve learnt to deal with this by doing my best to master and perfect my skills, this in turn brings a corresponding effect of respect and value for my services.

La Mode: Who is your role model and why?

Osamu: I think the single and most influential person that has shaped my development in the business is Mrs Banke Meshida-Lawal, I greatly admire her passion for the job and I kind of model myself after her.

La Mode: What are some of your favorite products in your makeup kit?

Osamu: I work with a variety of products but usually find myself reaching for my Mac products more often than others. I like the fact that they have such a wide variety of products and finishes and keep coming up with something new from time to time, you can barely keep up! I recently have also been trying my hands on Makeup Forever, Urban Decay, Kat Von D, Inglot, Motives cosmetics and lot of other really nice but maybe not so popular brands.

La Mode: What message do you have for young ladies and guys who want to build a career in makeup?
Osamu: I think upcoming makeup artists should be more interested in enjoying and mastering the art of makeup, get proper training and excel at the art. It shouldn’t first and always be about the financial rewards.
