‘My dress? oh!… jeans drive me crazy’

THE young Makinde Arinlade is CEO, Making Faces; an outfit that specialises in beautifying people for events. The Oyo State native, who is also a graduate of History and International Relations from the Awolowo University, Ife, tells DAMILOLA ADEKOYA what fashion means to her.

Definition of fashion
Fashion is style. It is being comfortable with what you are wearing.
Style of dressing
I am a jeans person, but I sometimes try to wear other dresses.
Most cherished possession
It’s God and nobody else.
Most expensive item
It’s a gold set of jewelry given to me by my mum.
Favourite designer
Next, New Look, and Gucci.
Signature scent
I love Unforgivable by Sean John
Favourite colour
I do not have a favourite colour, but as a make-up artist, I play with colours a lot.
Favourite body product
I love Cocoa Butter.
I like amala and ewedu soup.
Role model
My role models are Banke Meshida-Lawal, a professional make-up artist and Bunmi Oyeniyi, who is a beautician.
Stylish icon
I love Sasha and Omowunmi Akinnifesi; they are really good.
Turn on
Make-up, honesty and a good sense of humour.
Turn off
Dishonesty and people with nasty attitude.
Happiest moment
It’s yet to come.
Most embarrassing moment
It was the day my mum came to my school to scold me publicly for not coming home with my result. I was then in secondary school.
Describe yourself in three words
I am cool, friendly and creative.
Philosophy of life
Take life the way it comes.
If you are given an opportunity to change something in Nigeria, what would it be?
It will be enhancing the welfare package of the aged in our society.
