BBA Hotshots Finale with team Tayo

BBA Hotshots Finale with team Tayo

I’m sure those who know me, can tell that i am a die hard BBA (Big Brother Africa) fan. I have watched many seasons religiously but for some reason I didn’t really watch the BBA Hotshots as much.

Nonetheless, I noticed Tayo the few times I managed to catch up with show and I was drawn to his personality. Apart from his crying, the dude was super cool and I had no doubt that he would be amongst the last few to remain in the house.

Sunday the 7th of December was BBA Hotshots Finale and Nigeria’s Tayo was one of the finalists.

Thankfully my girl Laurasboxx was having a finale party with some of Tayo’s fans and followers the Big Brother Africa Show, so I decided to tag along.

It was no Joke o, there was food, cake drinks and even the Big brother housemates favourite drink Jameson was on the table. IMG_2271-0.JPGIMG_2279.JPG Most of the ladies wore Laurasboxx team Tayo Tshirst and trust me, I could feel the love for Tayo Faniran. It was real!

It was such a cool hangout and even though we were sad Tayo didn’t win, we still managed to to have a good evening.

It’s really nice to see us supporting our own. I’m so proud of Tayo and I wish him all the best in his endeavors.
Special thanks to Laurasboxx and the gang.

Lola highlighted the importance of bridging the gap between beauty brands and the end users mainly, makeup artists and beauty bloggers. She explained that BPS aims at giving us direct access to beauty brands, and the advantage to try out and analyze products before they are sent into the market.

BPS is also important for beauty brands as they get firsthand feed back and recommendations from end users, which helps inform how well a product might do when it eventually gets into the market.

Makeup Artist and Beauty Blogger, Chloe was also called upon to share her blogging experiences.

Makeup Maven NYNG is a beauty outfit that offers quality beauty products from New York at wholesale. The lovely lady told us about her unfortunate encounter with fake products in Nigeria and abroad. This motivated her to seek out the brands directly and make it possible for people to get access to the authentic beauty products. She spoke about the need for our opinions to form part of the product formulation process as the information we provide can help the brands produce products that are more suitable for our skin type.

BEAUTY PRESS SERIES PRE-LAUNCH 11 (Medium).jpgThe last speaker was the representative from Sleek Studios who introduced us to their skin care range. She sensitized the audience to the importance of using natural products, and informed us that this collection is formulated with pure natural ingredients. She went on to demonstrate the use of each item in the skin care range, showing us pictures of the amazing transformations after using the Sleek Studios skin care range.

BEAUTY PRESS SERIES PRE-LAUNCH 10 (Medium).jpgThe organizers were kind enough to give each of us the Sleek skin care range and other makeup products from Gifty’s Daughter and The Makeup Maven NYNG. Yes! Christmas came early because this was a great gift, thanks to the organizers and sponsors.
