The Founder

Nimi Ugwi – Professional Makeup Artist and Hairstylist.

All my life, I have had a passion to create an image for people, to make them feel different and look special.  My first step to pursuing this passion was to attend Art school, upon acceptance, I was fortunate enough to be offered a job within the school. By the time of graduation, I was already a professional hair and makeup specialist. But, no matter how much knowledge you have, I believe that you must always learn more to improve and expand your skill set.

As a stylist, I try to follow fashion innovations. But at the same time, I make it a point to never blindly impose on people my ideas and experiments from the modern world of fashion. I always cooperate with my client. My goal is to create personal style according to her inside world and self-expression. It is always a pleasure for me to help people feel confident and satisfied not just with their look but with themselves overall. I have had the opportunity to work with esteemed colleagues and establishments in and around Nigeria, my experience in the industry has made me meet a lot young school graduates, youths to be precise who are able bodied, intelligent and willing to work but jobs elude them as as there are no jobs due to the current situation of the country (underemployment). This experience brought about the birth of Mak Me Foundation.
