Tara Fela-Durotoye has claimed that her House of Tara trained 80% of all the make-up artists in Nigeria. She made the claim when she spoke on CNN’s African Voices.
The lawyer and award winning makeup and beauty entrepreneur also said that her step mother inspired her interest in the profession. She has grown the Tara brand into a world class brand.
“Today we have about 14 make-up schools across the country where people have been trained to become make-up artists. I can confidently say that for 80 percent of the make-up artists that are active players in the industry today, either working as entrepreneurs or working within other beauty brands, are trained by House of Tara. And I think for me that is the greatest joy.”
Tara is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of House of Tara International, creator of the Orekelewa range of beauty products and Inspired Perfume.
