Diary of a Makeup Artist – Tiwa Savage New Video “My Darlin” : Behind the Scenes

There are times in your career which truly define you.  Times where you feel so proud to have been part of a project and you can’t wait for the world to share your joy.  I’ve been bursting at the seams waiting for this new video to drop and it’s finally here!!!!!

If you haven’t seen it yet.. where have you been?! Most probably living under a rock somewhere lol.. but just in case you haven’t, let me recap for you.  Tiwa Savage released a beautiful song entitled #mydarlin’ a few weeks ago and we’ve been eagerly anticipating and holding our breath for the awesomeness that is Kemi Adetiba to finish editing our masterpiece.

I was so excited to be part of such a fantastic team. My girl Kemi and I go waaay back.. Omawumi “Today na Today”, WizKid “Holla at your Boy” &  “Tease Me” along with Banky W “Lagos Party” and “Follow You Go” for example meant that I knew we were going to have a blast!

Ola was on the hair, Dave Sucre was the main makeup artist on set, making Tiwa look as Glam as she always does, not a single eyelash out of place, highlighted and contoured to perfection and I came along and just messed it all up! LOL

Zed-Eye was on hand (stylist to the stars!) to make sure that everyone was looking on point. Emmanuel Ikubese played the leading man and he was dapper as ever! (Remember all the fun we had together on the set of Shuga.. oooh and we just wrapped on a new project.. shhhsh all will be revealed soon).

Check out the behind the scenes photos and the full length video below.   Stay tuned for our interview with Tiwa Savage herself soon on “The Beauty Insider” launching soon on Sacred Beauty TV

Nearly done..

I had to use Theatrical Aging Techniques rather than Latex as she was still filming alot of scenes after the transformation therefore I couldn’t risk leaving behind any wrinkling on her skin (not a good look). So we used a combination of powders, concealers, shadows and gelatine around the eyes to create the bags.
