BOUGIE-BOUGIE:(@missligan) KEMILOLA LIGAN TELL US THOSE STUFF SHE WOULD ONLY TELL HER BESTIE
Kemilola Ayopo Ligan is definitely not your average girl even though she has the charm and looks of “The Girl Next door”. She’s the kind of girl that knows the deal. Just in her mid twenties, Kemi runs her own makeover outfit which boasts of an enviable clientele. Her dashing beauty and her charming personality are the first things you would notice about Kemi and the last things you’d want to forget. Out of the thousands of men out there that want a piece of her time, and her customers that want her attention and expertise we fixed an appointment where she tells us those things about herself only her bestie should know.
I bet you wouldn’t believe it if I told you Kemi has fallen down the stairs at the cinemas right after seeing a movie with her boyfriend. She recounts the experience with a smile on her face, “You know what the crowd is like after a movie, yeah? Everyone kept saying sorry as they walked pass. It is my most embarrassing moment so far.” You could picture that she hurt herself badly. Not to worry Kemi has a history of being a tomboy and that was a long time ago. She has always been the tough type and she owes it to her childhood which according to her was a bit challenging. “We were not rich but my Mum made sure we had all we needed.” She said casting her mind back to her days as a little girl. Indeed it was tough she had battled illness as a little girl. Now, she is grown, sexy and lets us into her heart as she answered our reporter.
THE BOMB: Describe your typical week day?
KEMI: As a makeup artist a typical workday begins with me talking to clients and determining what type of artistic look is desired for the production, researching looks for shoots, sketching possible makeup looks and communicating with others in the styling team to make sure that the planned look is coherent. This means that the particular makeup look must match with the hairstyle and wardrobe, especially if the photo shoot has a particular theme or if the music video is a period piece. Most of my day is spent applying makeup in a timely manner, retouching between takes and making sure that the makeup looks good throughout the day.
THE BOMB: Six things you can’t do without
KEMI: Six things I can’t do without will be my God, he is always number one in everything I do, but if u mean material things then my blackberry, my earpiece (because I listen to music a lot), Pen, sugarless gum, hand lotion, Sun glasses
THE BOMB: Are you in a relationship and what’s your take on relationships in general?
KEMI: I am currently in a relationship. Relationships are the cornerstones of one’s life. Good ones may lift you to the highest order and bad ones will ruin you, so one should nurture it with a lot of care.
If you are living in the right time and right place then a relationship can be a very happy addition to your life. Relationship is WORK so I believe that if you are going to take the time to commit, it had better be with somebody who is worth your time. When a relationship gets to a certain point of consistent negativity it becomes more detrimental to both parties than beneficial.
All in all, depending on your age, relationships are important because they teach you to live not just for yourself but for another person, they teach you compromise and forgiveness.

KEMI: Hayden Christensen
THE BOMB: If you had to eat one last meal what will that will be?
