To complement the foundation of her style for the evening which was light/fair palettes as in her outfit and complexion, her makeup artist Debola Fanalna of Dfalana Artistry used rich jewel tones to really bring out her features. She chose to work with a palette of deep reds, burgundy and wine. 
For her eyes

For all the details on her outfit her hair was kept simple,  sleek yet with character with Bobby pins as accessories to add a bit of pizazz to her sleek straight hair with deep side part.
