We had the good fortune of connecting with Chinyelu Ginigeme and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chinyelu, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I will say to meet a need . Two out of my theee businesses(make up and photography) are professional services and it’s directly meeting a. need and getting paid for it .
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Am a professional make up artist and the creative behind Nahna beauty ,i specialize in soft glam . Soft glam has more of a clean soft glow make up aesthetic . There is also the “no make up make up look “ or the nude glam these are all categorized as a soft glam . And over time my work has kind of set me apart and created a niche for me so you immediately resonate with my work or you don’t but i have been consistent with it . Am also a portrait photographer. My photography business , memories by Nahna centers More on lifestyle images (headshots, maternity, birthday , branding , lifestyle images )tailored to the person or family as the case may be . I try to create beautiful memories that is peculiar to each individual. i offer my services bundled . Which is my make up /photography bundles .
I also own an online store /business Nahnabeautyaccessories where i sell jewelry , everyday essentials for the everyday woman .
My story is centered on hardwork and persistence . Building from the ground up and simply putting in the work . Brick by brick , one foot in front of the other and showing up everyday with an unwavering resolve to make a success out of myself
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
It depends on which friend because people like different things . But a good meal and good music will always be a good idea the question now is which is which like i said i depends on which friend . I personally like a good meal and drinks and oh deserts .
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First of all God , without whom none of this will be possible in the first place .My beautiful family, my kids. ,my husband for being so supportive, my sisters for being the best friends and sounding board i can ever ask for
