Professional makeup artiste and beauty expert, Vanessa Odofin has voiced out her discontent with the makeups in Nollywood movies. According to her, makeup artistes in movie industry need to be professionally trained in order to deliver world class services that will better portray characters in ways they should be. Vanessa’s believes that a touch of professionalism would go a long way in upgrading the standard of our makeup artists and in turn impact the movie industry positively.
She said, “the makeup jobs done in Nollywood can be so much better than what is obtainable; there is need for professionalism and improvement in the industry. It is the job of a makeup artist to convey believability for instance in the transition of a teenager to an adult in a movie without changing the character and this I believe our Nollywood practitioners are not doing enough, though there are some exceptions to the rule.”
Vanessa’s makeup and training outfit, Vanadale Beauty Company is organizing training and workshop for makeup artists, upcoming makeup artists and all those who want to acquire makeup expertise for personal use. The workshop which would be coming up on the 5th and 19th of July is also open existing makeup artisrts in Nollywood. Registration can be done online via www.vanadale.com
