Before you take any steps in becoming a model make sure you are confident and happy with yourself first. People can be very critical and you have to have tough skin to deal with negativity.

fashion modelHow did you started modeling?
My best friend made me an Instagram account exactly a year ago and I began posting pictures and got a lot of great feedback. This obviously addicted me to Instagram and my modeling career began from there.

Can you tell us about your social media has it helped with modeling?

Social media basically began my modeling career. It gave me the exposure and confidence that I needed to model. My favorite social media account is Instagram since it’s what began my career and I love posting selfies.

What are your favorite beauty products?
My two favorite beauty products of all time is the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow kit and the L’Oreal liquid eyeliner. The two things I love in life more than Nigerian food is a gorgeous winged eyeliner and an arched brow. I don’t need concealer, mascara or anything. I would rather just do my eyebrows and wing my eyeliner.

What are your favorite clothing brands?
My top three would have to be Calvin Klein, forever 21, and Chanel. I love to mix together inexpensive and expensive pieces of clothing and accessories. Calvin Klein and forever 21 are perfect for every season since I love to wear solid and neutral colors. I also love Chanel because of it’s vintage yet elegant look. I believe that your entire closet doesn’t have to be designer. You could be wearing forever 21 head to toe and then throw a Chanel boy bag on and you instantly look like a million bucks.

What is your best advice to keep your hair in great condition?
My advice would be to avoid damaging your hair as much as possible. My natural hair color is light brown and I always dye it black because I think it fits me better. I also recently bleached my hair which made it thinner and also gave me lots of split ends. I just dyed my hair back to black so my hair definitely needs a good break. Always make sure to Condition your hair as much as possible, and if your going to use any type of heat always use a heat protector. And any kind of serum or leave in moisturizer so that your hair won’t dry out. Stay away from over dyeing your hair!

Do you have any tips for readers that want to become a model?
Before you take any steps in becoming a model make sure you are confident and happy with yourself first. People can be very critical and you have to have tough skin to deal with negativity. Also make sure that you put yourself out there so that you have a chance at being discovered! Social media is your new best friend! ( Not literally!)
