Your make up must match your hair and outfit
When wearing Ankara to a formal event, always keep your makeup very simple. You have the chance to go wild on only one aspect of your face, so take your time to choose what you want to go wild on, be it your lips, brows, cheekbones or eyeshadow. Red or nude lipstick goes well with Ankara print. If you have short hair or have packed your hair in a high bun, you are free to go wild on the lips. Whatever your preference, keep your makeup simple but visible enough. Find the balance between appearing as a lady who has a strong makeup game but should be taken very seriously as well. Makeup has the tendency to make people take you for granted if not done appropriately for specific events.
