Adetola Anita Adetoye, creative director of Anita Brows Beauty, has single handedly built an award-winning brand.
She is one of the first beauty entrepreneurs to use personal branding as a way to distinguish herself from the bandwagon and truly create a brand that is both interesting and respected in Nigeria and abroad.
Anita first started dabbling with beauty while she was in secondary school, and has always been involved in the makeup industry in some capacity since she was a teenager. Her time studying journalism in Dublin, Ireland, Media production at Lewisham College, London and then Marketing at Griffith College in Ireland provided her insight that she turned to her true passion, beauty.
She was one of the first Nigerian beauty entrepreneur to properly harness the power of social media, turning to then new image sharing platform Instagram, to build a following. Her cutting edge approach
to make up, specifically the often hard to pin down on-trend brow, earned her the name Anita Brows and made her the go-to beauty expert for celebrities in Africa.
