CAREER: CHRISTABEL IKE - FOUNDER, KRISTABELS MAKEOVER


How would you describe yourself in one word?
Dedicated!

How did you get started in the business?
As an electrical engineering graduate makeup was really never my thing. My hubby said I should learn a skill and thought I would do great with makeup since I'm very artistic, and that's how my journey into the makeup world started.


What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?
My Family, my Job, a desire to help others and to contribute to my industry motivates me to get up every morning. Being able to make brides and clients beautiful, being praised for a job well done also
motivates me to get out of bed every morning because I know I'm appreciated and the work I am doing is being recognised.

If you worked in a restaurant what role would you want? 
Hmm, Head chef, because i like to be inventive and take risks.

How did you get the background and skills necessary to run this type of business?
I started off checking the Internet for tutorials and anything that would help in my journey to become a makeup artist. When I had acquired some knowledge  I then registered in a makeup school to get
proper skills and be certified.

Do you have employees? How many?
Yes I do, 9 staff.

Why do your customers select you over your competitors?
First it would be the God factor, our subtle makeup and signature gele and how we relate with them generally.

Where do you see your business in the next year? In the next 5,10 years?
That's a great question. I see my business growing with outlets all over the world and my brand products spread worldwide.

What advise would you give someone who is inspired by you and wants to get into the business?
Never give up on your dreams,never feel discouraged when things aren't going the way you hoped. Alot of people will tell you that you can't do it or you can't make it in the business, but I tell you if
your heart is in it and you feel it, there is nothing that will stop you.

Tell us something about you that no one knows.
I'm very shy. Thank you.
