Yinka’s Igbeyawo (Yoruba Traditional Wedding)

Lagos, July 2012


Yinka was my very first bride in Lagos after my return. I was super excited because she’s also an old friend.


She wanted a classic look that wasn’t too “matchy matchy” with her our fit. I opted for colors that complimented her skin tone and the color she would be wearing instead of an exact match. Here is what we came up with…

During her pre wedding trial…

We tried a bold red lip with orange highlights and a pretty pink lip. We could’t make up our minds so we decided to do both on her big day.

I absolutely LOVE this picture, it’s totally cliché (for Nigerian weddings) but I still love it!

Matchmaster Foundation from Mac

    Definitely the red lips with orange highlights. It blended more with her outfit.
    Meanwhile you did a very good job with the look
