Mrs Chioma: Lovely Dose of Colors

Season's Greetings beauties, 

I trust you're having a wonderful holiday with family and loved ones because I am. Today's post is definitely about one of my loved ones: Mrs. Chioma. 

This woman is beautiful even without makeup. I'm still wondering how I missed out on taking a before photo of her. Anyway, I won't let that dampen my spirit. 

I love Aunt Chioma for more reasons than one but mainly because she's always clear on what she wants. Nothing like working for and with someone who knows exactly what they want. And so she called me up one day requesting that she needed her makeup done for 2 events on subsequent weekends Well, it happened I could only be available for one. 

So, on the said day I arrived her house just in time; few minutes before 10am just as discussed and she was impressed. And as her beautiful kids clustered around in excitement to know just what I wanted to do to their mom, she sat quietly and relaxed. This was not the first time I would be doing makeup for her. 

I remembered the first time I did her makeup, she literally wouldn't let me go onto the next step without scrutinizing every single stroke of mine. 
With a warm smile on my face all through, I was able to earn her trust. She was amazed at how calm I was.

So,  back to the story for today, when I was done applying makeup on her, I tied her gele as well. She immediately called the lady who was supposed to tie for her not to bother. *grins* In all,  she was wowed and very satisfied.

Hundreds of selfie shots later proved that she loved her look so much so she didn't know the one to use for her profile picture.  She kept changing profile pictures per minute. I got several other referrals from her days later. Ooh did I mention that I love the gele. 
Enough of the talk.
