Online style magazine Into The Gloss has featured style icon and editor of digital magazine POP Africana, Oroma Elewa as part of their ‘The Face’ feature. She talks about obsessively stocking up on her favourite moisturisers, finding nude lipstick for brown girls (Film Noir and Photo by MAC fyi), getting braids in Lagos versus New York and good old west African staples black soap and sheer butter. And she has something to say about black hair too “hair has always been important for any woman of any race, but for black girls it’s different." Read the full feature here.
This is a beautiful story, I wish there were more pictures in Pop Africana. Editor, Oroma Elewa styled and took the photographs herself, but it mustn’t have been difficult because of this Senegalese born beauty, Metay.
