We have dubbed Toke Makinwa the ‘self-love queen’ because it’s quite obvious there is a healthy level of self-awareness that causes her to continuously stun and serve each time she makes an appearance. Toke is a true style star; fashion-wise, beauty-wise and carriage-wise.
“There is something about the way Toke carries herself…this kind of attention seems second skin to her”
…attests Mania’s Editor-in-Chief Godson Ukaegbu.
Today our focus is solely on Toke’s beauty; particularly the sultry and smooth makeup looks she’s come to be known for. Her signature makeup is clean and defined. She keeps her lips softly painted as her lipstick shades tend to go from nude to natural brown tones and pink to purple every now and then; however, matte brown sits at the top of her favorite lippies. She’s also been spotted in light shades of red on a few occasions.
When it comes to her eyes, Toke knows that this is one of her best assets so she makes extra effort to have them well-defined and popping. This she does by wearing sexy faux lashes and putting on well-blended smoky shadows in shades ranging from grey to golden brown. Her brows are rarely met unfilled.
Beyond colours and makeup, Toke has a natural glow which is evidence that she takes good care of her skin. Her facial contours are almost always highlighted and when the right places are highlighted, we are presented with some of her best features. A few other standout features of hers include her high cheek bones, collar bone and even that ‘five head’ as she refers to her prominent forehead.
Toke sure knows how to work her face which is why she is a beauty marvel! And it’s pretty obvious from her makeup choices that Kim Kardashian must be one of her beauty inspirations.
For your inspiration, we’ve curated some of our best moments of Toke serving hot beauty inspiration the way only she can.
