Finding a really good makeup artist is hard, especially these days that everyone is looking for cash here and there and everyone and their sister and aunty and cousin is a makeup artist.

As a bride, everyone will be staring at your face, at your makeup, and they will say ‘wow’ if it is fine BUT will gossip you if you look like a mini masquerade – and much of that depends on who you hire as your wedding day makeup artist.

We are happy to see many brides paying to get their face professionally done for their weddings, but many Kogi brides fail to do their due diligence when choosing a makeup artist. 

We are tired of Kogi brides looking like masquerades in the name of makeup.  Well-done makeup should not make you look unrecognizable but instead, make you look like a polished version of yourself.

That’s what a skilled or professional makeup artist will give you. So, how do you know the i-wan-be-makeup-artist types from the real deal, and avoid being used as a muse for makeup practical by a learner who is looking for fast ‘chop-money’? Well, that’s what you’ll find out in this post.

Choosing a Good Wedding Makeup Artist that Will Deliver

There are two main processes to finding a good makeup artist for your wedding or any occasion –

(1) first you have to search and make a list of who and who to contact,

(2) and then you have to select which one is the best fit for you.

A: Where (and How) to Find a Skilled Makeup Artist: The Discovery Process

Most Lokoja brides travel to their villages for the traditional wedding, and it is not that cheap to transport a Lagos makeup artist outside their base.

So, where do you start looking when you don’t know a single makeup artist in an area.

Follow our steps below:

Ask Stylish people if they know or have used a good makeup artist that they can recommend to you.

Search Google, Kogi Biography Or Instagram for makeup artists in your area (for most of our readers, they would type something like: Kogi makeup artists or Best Kogi makeup artists)

Track Record with Doing Bridal Makeup:
Make sure that the makeup artist you’re considering has done a lot of your type of events.

For Most Kogi Bridal’s, they would be looking for bridal makeup artists, not those that have not done any or plenty wedding makeup for brides.

Some makeup artists are better experienced with prepping the face of runway models or film actors or stage – and they may not give you the kind of look you have in mind.

If you like light makeup and hire a Kogi makeup artist that usually does heavy makeup, you will hate your wedding-day face in pictures; same goes for a bride that likes full coverage makeup hiring a Kogu makeup artist that does light-handed makeup.

Recents Works:

Take a look at the before and after pictures of the artist’s past clients, from an event similar to that which you will be attending (for most of our readers, you want to see before and after wedding makeup pictures – maybe you are going to be a bride, or a wedding guest, or even the mother/ sister of the bride (or groom).

Make a list of 3 to 5 makeup artists whose before and after faces look like the face you want on your wedding day.

HINTS: Use the above 5 steps to make a list of possible Kogi makeup artists you should contact.
Follow the next steps to know what to do to pick the one that is right for Artist

Choosing the Right Makeup Artist

Once you have made a list of the good makeup artists out there, you have to choose one. Obviously, not all of them will be right for you. Here’s a guide to help you filter the good from the not-so-good list of makeup artists you compiled:

(1.) Contact them one by one and have them do a TRIAL of their work on you: The idea here is to interview them to see if you ‘vibe with the person; to ‘test’ their work on your face (before your big day) so that you can see if they do your style of makeup; see photos of brides they have done makeup for in the past; show them pictures of wedding-day makeup that you like and ask if they can try it on your face; and finally to ask about price and their availability on your wedding date.

(2.) See Sample Works Before You Pay: 

How can you be sure that a makeup artist that claims to know his/ her stuff will give you a glam face? Testing with your money could mean a hit or miss BUT the surefire way to know is to see pictures of their before and after makeovers.

If you have lots of spots from pimples or have tribal marks, you’d want to see before and after makeup showing where the makeup artist truly covered a client’s spots or tribal marks.

You may also want to find out that they won’t over-paint you to look like a masquerade. Seeing previous works is the only way to believing before you pay or hire a Good Kogi makeup artist.

(3.) Get a Professional Makeup Artist:

Don’t Allow Anyone to Learn Work with Your Face,  Allowing someone to do your makeup free – whether they are an expert or an amateur is risky.

Well, except you want to risk your wedding pictures – most brides tell us that one of their biggest regrets is ‘the way their poorly-done makeup made them look in their wedding photos’.

So, don’t allow a non tried and tested makeup artist to ‘use your wedding face to learn work’.

In fact, it’s safer to avoid hiring a friend or family member to do your makeup or photography, even if they say ‘free’ –

just allow them to enjoy themselves as guests (because if they make mistakes, your wedding pictures will forever remind you and make you cry the rest of your life).

(4.) Right Makeup Artist for Your Type of Occasion: 

When hiring a professional Kogi Makeup Artist, find one that has done lots of the type of makeup you want –

some makeup artists are good at bridals and not great at heavy, dramatic makeup, such as those worn by musicians – and vice versa. For example: if you’re a bride, hire a makeup artist who specializes in bridal makeup, and nothing less.

Please Note:
The best is not necessarily the most expensive. There are great kogi state makeup artists that don’t charge an arm and leg, and there are those that charge very high but not so good at the skill. So, ensure to make your final selection based on the makeup artist that charges what you can pay.

Kogi State Pro Makeup Artists and Countless Amateurs

Do You Know that your hobbyist sister or stylish friend cannot give you a better face makeover than what you see in any of
the before and after bridal makeovers here.

Once you see a professionally done makeup, you would agree that it’s totally a bad idea to allow an amateur to do your wedding makeup.

Your wedding is only but one day, but the pictures would stare at you long, long after – either making you smile that you made the right decision to hire a professional makeup artist OR reminding you that you were stingy with paying a little extra to prep up your face 😃.

One of the biggest put-offs at many Kogi State weddings is the bride’s face. She is either over-made-up, so much so that she looks almost like a masquerade or she has these long, dramatic fake eyelashes that scream “I am very fake” to the guests and heavy ‘pancakes’ powder (pancake is the Kogi speak for tinted face powder).

If you’re like us, the first thing that comes to your mind is ‘why did this bride leave her makeup to the mercy of amateurs?’ or could she not have bothered to learn how to do her makeup herself like a pro?🤔

And, on the flip side, there are beautiful wedding makeup pictures of Kogi brides that wow us and cause our jaws to drop in appreciation.

Get a Professional Kogi Makeup Artist and Get Your Money’s Worth

Whether you’re going to be a bride soon or a wedding guest, choose a skilled makeup artist – our above steps will help.

Most Kogi State brides are afraid that if they hire a makeup artist, that artist will over-paint their faces and make them look like someone else (a mini masquerade).

But that’s not true – it’s amateur artists that do that. If you like natural-looking makeup, tell your makeup artist and they will give you just that.They won’t put fake eyelashes on you if you don’t like – by the way, there are ‘original eyelashes’ and (almost) no one will notice it’s not your natural lashes.

The bottom-line is this – if you decide to pay to get your face done, find a skilled, practicing makeup artist by asking people.

And be sure to do try them before your wedding day, to see if their makeup style is a good fit for you.

We always advice our brides that photography and makeup are two of things that are better left to professionals. You can do your own everyday makeup yourself but find a GOOD makeup artist to do your wedding day makeup.

How to register for your PVC online in 5 simple steps



Nigeria’s general elections begin on February 25, 2023. Since the 2019 elections, about 20 million Nigerians have turned 18 and are now eligible to vote. While every Nigerian citizen has the right to vote, logistical obstacles can prevent them from exercising it. One of the most important steps in the voting process can be taken right now, though, and that’s obtaining a Permanent Voters Card (PVC).

Voters must present a PVC issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Election Day in order to participate in the voting process. In previous elections, PVC registration was an arduous process that required people to queue for days. Now, any Nigerian citizen with access to the internet can register a PVC by themselves online as INEC has launched an online portal for this purpose. Other than registering for a new PVC, voters can also use the site to transfer their cards to a different state or request a card to be reissued.

The online PVC registration, which started in June 2021, has a deadline of June 30, 2022. As of May 12, 2022; more than 16 million people have registered. However, INEC chairman Mahmud Yakubu revealed in April that around 45% of these registrations were declared invalid due to incomplete data and wrong or multiple registrations. In some regions, the chairman added, that percentage was as high as 60%.

To ensure a validated registration, follow the 5 simple steps below to register for your PVC online.

PVC registration online

Step 1: Visit the INEC website

The first step on how to register your PVC online is to go to the INEC registration portal and select “Get Started”. You will be taken to a new page with a list of services. Click on “New Voter Pre-registration”. Note: This option is only for people who have never registered their PVC before. There are other options on the site if your card is lost, or if you want to buy update your information for a new card.

Before we proceed further, know that you can only register once. Wait for confirmation after submitting your application, and do not make any attempt to register again after that-otherwise, you risk invalidating your registration, because signing up multiple times is considered a crime.

Step 2: Create a portal account or login

Before proceeding to the registration form, you will be required to sign in to your portal account or create one. Fill in your name, email address, phone number, and create a password, then click “Submit”. It is important to only use an email address you have access to, as you will receive an email instantly to verify your account. If you can’t find the email, it might have gone to your spam folder.

In your email app, you should find mail from INEC CVR Portal. Open it and click on the link contained in it to return to the sign-in page you encountered earlier. This time, click on “Log In” and enter your email and the password you just created. After that, you will be directed to a Declaration page that wants to confirm that all information you will provide is accurate. Ensure to click on “Yes” before proceeding.

Step 3: Register

After the Declaration page, you will be taken to the main registration form. The information required for the form is as follows:

Biodata: name, date of birth, gender, occupation, address, NIN, and nationality.

Additional information: level of education, disability, maiden name.

Residence: country of residence, state of residence, LGA or city of residence.

Birth information: country of birth, state of birth, LGA or city of birth.

Origin information: country of origin, state of origin, LGA or city of residence, place of origin (town or village)

Polling unit: This is information about the state, local government and area you want to vote in.

At the bottom of the page, you will find space for supporting documents like your national identity card or passport. Although this step is not mandatory, it facilitates the verification process by making it easy to confirm your identity. It also enables INEC to link your profile on their database to other databases.

After you have this, click “Save and Continue”, and you’ll be led to a fresh page with confirmation that your application has successfully been updated. If you do not get this confirmation, click on the three black lines in the top right corner of your screen to view your application status.

Step 4: Upload Photographs

Next, you will be required to upload two clear close-up photographs of your face: one with a neutral expression, and the other with you smiling. To upload your photos, click “Choose File” and you will be taken to your camera. As soon as you take each selfie, click “Use Photo”, and it will be automatically resized and uploaded. Make sure the photos are clear and well-lit. You’re now ready for the next step.

Step 5: Schedule an appointment

Now that you know how to register for your PVC online, the final step is how to schedule a convenient appointment date to get your biometric data collected. Biometrics are unique physical characteristics you have like height and fingerprints. On this page, you will get a form with a list of options showing the closest places where you can get your biometrics done. These options are obtained from the address you entered when filling out your biodata. There are 811 centres dedicated to biometrics capturing nationwide, with even more being created. You can find a list of every center listed by state here.

There is also a list of available times for your biometrics on the portal. Select the one most convenient for you. Biometrics take about 30 minutes to be completed and the officials are punctual. In the event that you miss the date or time for your appointment, you can always reschedule through the INEC portal. Once you’ve selected a date and time, you can then submit your application.

Now you’re on your way to becoming an eligible voter. After your biometrics appointment, you will receive a temporary voters’ card (TVC)-proof that you completed the voting process. Keep it in a safe place. When the PVC is ready, you will be contacted by INEC to pick it up at the same center you had your biometrics done. This can take anywhere between 1 to 3 months.

Note: You must present your TVC in order to receive the PVC. If your TVC is missing, you can reprint it from the online portal. All you need to do is enter your log in details in order to access your form.
