Similoluwa’s Transformation

Similoluwa’s Transformation (The Transformation Series)

Hello beautiful people 🙂 I hope the year has been great so far? I know this is coming a bit late but better late than never 😀 HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’ve been meaning to put up posts ever since but I kept having recurrent issues with my website so posts had to be delayed. As a matter of fact, I’m on my way to meet with my website designer, just thought to drop some stuff in here first.

So I started a little project called “The Transformation Series”. It’s basically a series of “Before Meets After” looks. I even made short videos for the project so look out for it 😉 So, there has been a lot of controversy recently about showing the before and after pictures of a woman. A lady even said she felt it was very rude. My take is… if the subject doesn’t mind having her ‘before meets after’ picture posted then all is well and good. Not everyone allows it, I personally think it’s fun and I put up one for myself a few years back ( I should do another soon 😀 ) What is your take on the “before Meets After” concept? So back to Simi…

Here’s Simi’s before….


We have to cover a lot of spots and I achieved this using the Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation with the Milani Cosmetics Cover Creme Concealer. She told me she liked blue so I decided to add some blue glitter to her eyes and we created a gorgeous look.

Also, we decided to try a different gele style, not every day bridal gele 😀

It was a fun shoot and she was ecstatic about her look (of course that made be blush a lot 😀 ). I hope you enjoyed the post? Please check out my youtube channel ( still scanty but I’ll put up more videos with time) and subscribe too.

Thanks for stopping by, please drop your comments.
