“It was a fantastic experience. I felt very happy doing her makeup. Until then, she was sort of faceless at the beginning. Somewhat drab, but lurking under that was a face that become really attractive. By the time I did the makeover and then we had the photoshoot handled by TY Bello, a brand new person emerged.
“You could say that we represented her as an attractive First Lady to Nigerians, and a lot of people liked what they saw.
"I think that is what good make-up and good photography can do to a person’s image: you present your subject in an appealing way. I get to meet people in their private life and I must confess that working with the former First Lady was a new experience,” she told Sun newspaper.
