Banke Meshida Lawal is the boss at BMPRO, which is probably one of the biggest names and brands in her line of business.

She is the make-up artist on speed dial of celebrities and stars worth their salts, as she doesn’t come cheap at all.

Banke’s journey into being the influencer she is in the Nigerian beauty industry started over a decade ago in her university days at University of Lagos.


She recalled that everything started out as a hobby, adding: “I would wear makeup and people will ask me to help them out. I did that for strangers and friends without hesitation.”

Her mastery of the act made her turn it into a business upon graduation. The decision to follow her passion soon began to pay off with a steady rise to prominence.

She once admitted to not expecting this level of significance makeup artistry enjoys in Nigeria, saying: “I didn’t even think makeup will get to the level it is now.”

Her expertise has warmed her into the hearts of a lot of prominent clients, including First Ladies and billionaires’ wives in the country.

She has also won a plethora of awards, from Best Makeup Artist (The Nigerian Event Awards-2012) to Makeup Artist of The Year (FAB AWARDS-2010), Makeup Brand of The Year (ELOY AWARDS-2009) and many more.
