The First Make-Up Studio In Makurdi; The Story
2013, I resigned from the prestigious House of Tara and came back to Makurdi to wait for the miracle to do a masters in creative makeup abroad. While I waited, I needed to do something, so I spoke with a kind hearted aunty who gave me her small personal office, which I turned to a makeup studio, the first make up studio in Makurdi, called Emeralds Studios, which later became Awastudios. For many, it was insignificant, and too little for someone with my experience in makeup artistry…
…but for me, it was a dream come true, and that small space graduated numerous young women and men, who are doing well in the beauty industry in Benue and beyond.
Today we have so many makeup artists, and many beauty studios in Benue, and our beauty industry is growing bigger by the day. Benue has been good to Awastudios the past few years, we had the opportunity to contribute our quota to our environment, empowered youths and won so many awards to our honor. As a company we have grown, and as an individual, I have gained, learned and experienced a lot in my father land.
Becoming the State Coordinator for The Association of Benue Makeup artist/ Makeup and Beauty connect series was such an honor. The relationship and friendship from our students, friends, family, colleagues and costumers has been of great value to us.
I want to use this medium to say thank you to all those who believed in us, stood by us, and made this dream a reality. It is because of you that we are Awastudios.
- We would also like to use this time to say, we have moved from our Makurdi studio and relocated to abuja (our new address coming soon).
However, our services are still available in Benue on freelancing for now.
- I have good makeup artists on ground and can also give recommendations.
- Also feel free to call us in Abuja for your personal Makeup Training, Personal Gele class, Photoshoots, etc.
Once again, Thank you deeply.
