‘…My passion for make-up started when I was in my first year in the
university. I would make people up just to revel in the happy expression on
their faces, I loved anything make-up… It inspires me…’ – @osamus_signature

 

I am of the opinion that for this country to achieve its full potential and
drastically reduce the unemployment and underemployment rate that often
contributes to agitations across the borders, there’s a need to encourage
and stimulate the potential of young entrepreneurs from the grassroots
level from the get go. The objective of empowering and encouraging creative
people from each community and tertiary institution is paramount. The
number of self-sustaining creative people in our higher institutions is
huge. Back in the days, people could hide under the pretext of finding it
hard to spot talent as the reason for not providing support but technology
today has nullified that. Every single day, I am coming in contact with a
huge number of young creative people in our higher institutions in fields
such as in fashion, lifestyle, entertainment and art. Ebuehi Osamuyimen
Precious is one such lady harnessing a multi-million-naira career in the art
industry. She’s a make-up artiste that also specializes in make-up special
effects. Her drive to add premium value to the art and entertainment
industry and also create a platform that employs various creative minds is
the driving force behind this lady who is in her 500 level in the
University of Benin, studying optometry.

‘My passion for make-up started when I was in my first year in the
university. I would make people up just to revel in the happy expression on
their faces, I loved anything make-up… It inspires me.’ – She started
talking to me.
‘This journey started for me from watching make-up videos on the Internet
and practicing on my friends. Some of them would refuse, while some others
agreed because I wouldn’t let them have rest of mind until I did the
make-up .The main reason why I started learning from the Internet was
because I couldn’t afford to pay fees for a make-up school. I was watching
lots of videos on creative make-up and special effects.  Prior to that, I
had acquired knowledge on hair dressing and how to fix nails before I got
into the university, so I was providing services for those in need of these
in school during my spare time to gather more money. I saved up money made
to buy a few make-up products to practice. It was really difficult
combining make-up and school because my course was time consuming but I
endured. I later learnt how to bake cakes and pastries and from there I got
more funds for my make-up. The aim of learning all these was to raise funds
for my make-up passion. Soon my make-up products needed a make-up box, and
so I got something small.

‘In the midst of several discouragements, my family stood by me all the
way.  I remember crying to my eldest sister that I wasn’t going to make-up
again, that I wanted to quit, she said “Osamu you will make it just keep
doing what you’re doing and be consistent.” Those words gave me wings to
fly in my downtimes. In a short while, my friends started referring me to
clients, my family started giving me make-up jobs, and I was so excited. I
wanted to be exceptional, so I watched more videos to accumulate more
knowledge. I also went to learn the mastery of Gele tying in less than four
days.  In case you are of the opinion that those days are too short to be
perfect, don’t forget the fact that constant practice leads to perfection.

To put my craft to the test, I entered for a make-up competition in Uniben
and emerged the winner of the make-up festival season 1. I didn’t stop
there I started organizing Gele and make-up training and I am currently
perfecting my skills in special effects because I have the dream to be a
movie make-up artist.’ – Ebuehi Osamuyimen Precious.
