With the most recent influx of beauty products flooding the stores everyday and brand partnerships with celebrities,  it might get a tad confusing deciding what products to place in your cart. To assist you, we caught up with Celebrity MUA, Joyce Jacob who just recently got featured in Forbes, Africa for her excellence in the make-up industry in Nigeria as a returnee. She has also worked on faces of some of continent’s powerhouses such as Ghana’s Peace Hyde, Media mogul Mo Abudu and Tiwa Savage to name a few.

The beauty expert named the top 5 Make-Up products she would always recommend and we’re definitely here for any tips that might help guide our buying decisions.



  1. MAC Mineralised Skin Finish

I like it for its natural layout and buildable formula. It sits on your skin quite nicely

2.  Wet ‘n’ wild Liquid Eyeliner

I like that it’s affordable, ultra-black and has a felt tip applicator which makes for easy application.

3. Black Opal Stick Foundation

Its long lasting formula makes for easy wear. It also has a wide range for women of colour and has good coverage for that seamless finish on your skin.

4. Black-Up Charis Contour kit

It’s extremely pigmented and I love how dark the tone is because most brands aren’t as dark.

5. L’Oreal Carbon Black Mascara

It’s really dark and a really nice fluid formula which lengthens and adds that extra volume to your lashes.
