SVNG Reports: Top 10 Traditional Wedding Makeup Artists in Nigeria

The makeup industry is one of the largest and most booming industries in Nigeria and no doubt we have hundreds of thousands of makeup artists in Nigeria (maybe even millions). One thing you should know is that every makeup artist has a unique signature and area of strength: some better at traditional makeup than white wedding makeup or editorial makeup. The basic requirement of traditional wedding makeup is vibrant makeup, bright colours, full, bold and clean beat.

We have compiled a list of our top 10 traditional makeup artists in Nigeria. Please note that these vendors were selected based on our internal criteria consisting: quality of work, value for money, signature look, aesthetic and customer satisfaction feedback. We do not consider vendors popularity as a criterion for selection, neither does this list reflects a definitive and absolute.  In no particular order, see below out top 10 traditional makeup artists listed on StyleVendorsNg.

Tdolls Makeover

Location: Lagos, Nigeria

CEO: Temitope Sotomi

Signature: Statement ombre eyes

We have to start on the highest note with Tdolls makeover. If I personally have to pick a makeup artist for my traditional wedding, Tdolls will be my top five picks. Her work is bold but with sophistication and panache. She’s not scared to experiment with colours, so its either you go bold or go home.  Her signature look is the gleaming bold ombre eyeshadow that makes your face pop.

Looking for that clean, subtle and bold beat for your traditional wedding? Ruby Zain beauty is your go to.
