“Spotlight” is a series that focuses on young Nigerian creatives and the amazing things that they’re doing in their various fields. It was started because we wanted to share stories of these young creatives and their individual journies on the path to greatness.

This week,  we’re featuring creative makeup artist, Oluchi Ahamefule. Oluchi is a makeup artist that we discovered on Twitter when she went viral for posting some of the most creative/VFX make-up looks we had ever seen.

Oluchi Spotlight

We interviewed Oluchi because we had to know how she comes up with these crazy drawings she draws on her face and we also wanted to know why she decided to go into this type of make-up.

Here’s how the interview went:


What did you study in school?

Well, I’m currently in my final year of medical school

How’s that going?

It’s going okay actually. This last phase is a lot though because we were supposed to write our last Medical Board exams and be done by September. But COVID-19 came to change plans

So that’s the one major thing in your life that Covid-19 has affected?

It’s God mehnn. He gives me ideas on how to go about stuff, and ideas on cool things to do. And as much as some of the things I’ve painted were inspired by really amazing MUAs online, God gives me ways to go about it easily

Oluchi creative of the week

Who are some creative makeup artists that you admire?

Abby Roberts, Gabrielle Alexis, Mimi Choi, and Katie Butt. They are mind-blowingly good!

What’s the most challenging drawing you’ve ever done?

I would have to say the Jackpot one. That took me about 4 hours or so

If I wanted to become a creative makeup artist, what would you advise me to do?

Well just start from somewhere, don’t overthink it. Everyone started small and grew along the way, so no need to be in a rush. The world is looking for something different, don’t limit yourself. If you put in the work, practice and pray, slowly and surely your work will begin to speak for you.
