IMG_0889Oluwafeyisayo Ogundipe is a make-up artist whose love for makeup and beauty stems from a desire to make people better, feel better and look better. Feyisayo has distinguished herself with her art, creating abstract body art with special effects. She constantly enjoys to push the boundaries of makeup and creating looks that are out of the norm. She is definitely not just any other makeup artist.

In her own words, she realizes that she is the happiest when she helps others to achieve their dreams and pursue their life’s purpose.

To watch Feyzo! work at her craft is to clearly understand what it means to be passionate about one’s craft. She is usually humming a tune, playing a song, pulsing with excitement and doing a dance in the middle of work. Her sense of humour is quite palpable and amusing too.
