The highly anticipated Beauty Africa Exhibition & Conferences ended yesterday, and it was as awesome as was expected.
A lot of people who didn't make it in 2014 found their way to Eko Hotel this time because they couldn't afford to be left out again. And i'm pretty sure that they were not disappointed because many of them got to meet the big names in the industry who they never thought they would ever meet, but the conference provided the platform where they could meet, mingle, take pics and lots of selfies with these people....how cool is that?
They also got to learn lots of skills and tips from the industry's professionals. On day 1, Bimpe Onakoya who i love *too much* created a fantasy look on her gorgeous model using gold leaves. Khuraira Musa taught the A-Z of airbrushing, Fatima Mamza *beautiful Fati* taught her class the fundamentals of color and complexion for the bridal beauty.

|I was mesmerized by this stand. When i walked by at first, i was like "Oh goody! Cupcakes are available!", next thing, i overheard someone say "You mean they are soaps?". Then i did a double-take and echoed "Wait! Are these soaps?!".|
|Just negodu! It was all i could do not to dip my finger in the 'frosting' and lick it.|
