In a world where make-up and make-over have become part of a woman’s life, in fact you may not recognise your own sister immediately after taking her bath, because she is not the same person you saw the previous afternoon.
There is no doubt, so many ladies are naturally beautiful without make-ups, Infact they can appear anywhere naturally, but only few can of these ladies can appear on their wedding day without any iota of make-up.
However, Bisola Umoren, whose make-up free wedding picture went viral on social media defiled all odds and presure to stick to what she belives in on that special day she tied the nuptial nut with Philip Umoren.
Here is what she has to say:
I contacted a make-up artiste and she was on standby. On that fateful morning, I was in the car and I looked at the mirror and liked what I saw. Meanwhile, because I was already running late, I had begged the make-up artiste to come over and do the make up in the church (inside the car). After all, it wasn’t supposed to be a serious thing- just small touches here and there.
So, as I stared at myself in the mirror, I looked so natural and beautiful; I really liked what I saw.Some church members also came to me and liked my natural look and agreed with me not to make up.
“When my husband first met me, I had not had my bath, but he saw and fell in love with my natural look. “My hair was due, my face looked way older, I was even tying nylon on my hair when he came to me on that fateful morning, yet he loved what he saw. So, who am I supposed to be making all that up for on my wedding day?” “Secondly, For a good start, I’m not the make-up type. I don’t even wear ear-rings or like to drop my hair. I don’t like any form of inconvenience or discomfort on my face, my neck and entire body. It is not a church thing, it is just me and my personal decision.”
Explaining how she met her husband:
“We met last year, December 16, 2015 after I was robbed besides Abiola Garden, Lagos at about 9am. The robbery was a horrible experience; I lost my Blackberry phone, tab and some money. A close friend then volunteered to come help me massage my leg when he heard what happened to me.”
“When he was coming that morning, he came with his long time friend (who is now my husband).) After the first visit, he (my husband), came back alone on December 26, to see me and that was how our relationship started. Few weeks later, he proposed because he was scared that if he wasted more time, another man would take over. (laughs).” “He is very caring. He showered me with his love and care that I had no choice but to succumb. But his tribe was almost a barrier for us; he is from Akwa-Ibom while I’m from Lagos State. We had our court registry in February 2016, barely three months after we met.”
