COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

COVER STAR: YW INTERVIEW WITH TOOSHAI FACES.

Meet the incredible Sinchang Cho. She’s the very talented MUA and beautician of Tooshai Faces. I’m a fan of Sinchang’s work. We had long hours of conversations over the phone in prep for this interview and each conversation left me feeling so empowered and proud. Proud of the woman she has become, the wife, the mother and most importantly the creative Makeup Artist and Beautician the nation and the rest of the world will soon get to know.Though she resisted several times, makeup always found a way to be front and centre in her life. With colleagues always complimenting her makeup, friends asking her to do their makeup and even working as the makeup artist on set of a Cameroonian movie and a music video as well gave Sinchang the boost to finally embrace her calling. Below is the interview we did with Tooshai Faces. Read, get to know her and spread the word.    YW: How and when did you get your start in makeup? TSF: I can’t exactly tell how I started, I happened to always have my makeup right or at least better than most other girls makeup. So I just remember as far back as when I was in Lower sixth in 1998, I started doing my brows, then others wanted me to do their brows, it wasn’t exactly what it is today but it looked good at the time. Then later on in University, I used to help my mom out at her hair Salon, she was a teacher but she owned a Hair salon and when we all got back from school, we’ll...

IWD SHOUTOUT: OKAWA SHAZNAY AND ANITA ADETOYE.

IWD SHOUTOUT: OKAWA SHAZNAY AND ANITA ADETOYE.

I woke up this morning feeling very empowered, energised and just all round happy. All these feelings had been brought about by the beautiful International Women’s Day messages  from friends/family which had nowhere else to but to sit in my soul(because what I felt was more than just a touch). This got me thinking of a post to write celebrating that woman who is out there following her dreams without fear, that woman I have seen grow from strength to strength. I finally picked two ladies…Cameroonian actress Okawa Shaznay and Nigerian MUA Anita Adetoye  of AnitaBrowsBeauty. This was very easy choices for me to make. Through mutual friends, I got to know these ladies and I have followed their journeys for a while now via social media. I interviewed Okawa in October 2010 who I got to know through my cousin Susana.Before the official interview, we had some pre-interview skype chats to get to know her better. What struck me the most was her humility which instantly put me at ease and we just chatted like longtime buddies. I remember her expressing her desire to move to Nigeria to pursue acting. I was completely blown away by that because she was already acting in Houston, Texas where she was based at that time and was quickly making a name for herself. On top of that, she had a bright future in Accounting. How would someone with that kind of security and stability in the land of ‘dreams-come-true’, leave it all behind to pursue acting in Nigeria? I was gobsmacked and excited for her all at the same time. She...
