Alordiah spills on her career and makeup academy to Nathalie Olah, excerpts
Can you share any of the tips from your makeup academy?
Well, my favourite features are the cheekbones and eyebrows. African women are famous for their beautiful, high cheekbones. So, I like to teach contouring – highlighting the cheekbone and shading below, and I love to use the M·A·C Mineralize products. It’s important to remember makeup doesn’t change you, but it can give you that extra oomph when you’re in need of confidence.
Nigeria as a whole is going through a tough time. Can you describe the atmosphere among young people right now?
I think the general feeling is one of neglect, but this has allowed for a lot more creativity. People realize that they have to make things happen for themselves! A lot of talent is emerging from Nigeria across music, art and fashion.
