Signed to Pages Modelling Agency, 10 models with different makeup looks to put on an amazing display of creativity as they gave a show-stopping catwalk to up-tempo music with Kennis Music’s DJ Butterr on the music deck. The looks were created by the Blk Opl Nigeria’s official brand ambassadors, Lillian Paul and Tolani Artistry.

On the inspiration behind the looks, Tolani Artistry had this to say, I wanted to showcase the versatility and coverage of the foundation, concealer and powder range. I also paired some of the looks with bold lip colours on the models to illustrate the vibrant colours within the colour splurge lip line. Additionally, I wanted to represent how fantastic the finish of each skin product and powder was especially in the Nigerian climate.
