If you’ve ever been on Instagram chances are you’ve seen at least 10 posts from popular “Aso Ebi” inspiration page – Aso Ebi Bella.
Owned by Nigerian makeup artist, Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM|Pro, the edit has featured popular faces like Toke Makinwa, Lola Omotayo, Dakore Akande and now, Ink.
The maiden cover for 2018 shows the aso ebi bella curator looking fierce with gorgeous makeup by Banke, photography by Big H Studios and shows her in a light that we can’t get enough of.
Sharing her excitement about the new cover, Ink said via her Instagram page;
“When the opportunity to be the 1st #BMProCoverGirl for 2018 I couldn’t believe it! FUN FACT The first person to EVER do my makeup was @BanksBMPro ! My mum took me to a fair when I was a teen and for fun she put gold lipstick on me (remember when that was the trend?!) how time flies! Thank you #BMPro for talking to me about the transition to full-time entrepreneur @asoebibella and for the makeup – I looked airbrushed in real life! by the amazingly talented @bighstudios ! He makes it look sooo easy but it’s not.
Look out for the conversation + more photos coming super soon! ? Won’t be here without you Bellas, so big thank you to you reading this right now, yes, YOU! #AsoEbiBella we takin’ ova!”
The Aso Ebi Bella brand has definitely come a long way. From growing under the wings of popular lifestyle & entertainment website, BellaNaija, to flourishing into its own website and independent brand, we can’t wait to see what the original aso ebi bella and her beloved brand do next.
