Eva Alordiah talks about her style and make-up.

In a new interview, Popular Nigerian rap artiste, Eva Alordiah, tells all Ademola Olonilua about her style and makeup. She said the fashion item she can't leave her house without is a mirror... according to her, mirror is every girls' best friend. See excerpts below....

What kind of clothes do you feel most comfortable in?
I feel more comfortable in jeans, T-shirts and boots.

How lucrative is having or investing in fashion in Nigeria today? 
Is it advisable for one to delve into it?Fashion anywhere in the world is constantly evolving. Everything is here in Nigeria for you to work with if you are willing to work. That is just how life is. I always advise people to follow their true passions. The question of whether one thing is lucrative should not even come up. If you are doing what you love, you find out that you would constantly push yourself to succeed in it. If you do it because of money, you would quit from the stress before you even smell the money. Life is simple. Do your best work wherever you find yourself, the money and all other things would follow.

What is that fashion item you admire on a man?
Shoes; I love a guy who knows how to wear interesting styles of shoes and looks smart in them.

To you, is fashion about dressing alone or much more?
I think fashion is about acceptance of who you are, what thrills you and what makes you want to walk with your head up. That is beyond just dressing up. It takes a sense of style to love fashion. It takes guts to experience what it is really about.

Do you prefer looking natural or you feel incomplete without make-up on?
Make-up for me is part of dressing up as a girl. You want to put your best face forward at all times and look smart. Even grooming the eyebrows alone might just be enough. It is about making an effort to look good. An extra 15 minutes a day to pamper myself is self-love. You must really love yourself as a woman to care about staring at your own face for long minutes worrying about eyebrows and mascara. That is how I relate with my make-up.

Is there any fashion item you can’t leave home without?
I cannot leave home without a mirror, blotting papers, and rings on my fingers. A mirror is a girl’s best friend. The blotting paper is to mend my make-up when it gets greasy. I wear rings because I don’t wear watches. Also, at that moment when people are talking too much and I need something to play with while I wait for them to finish, my rings come in handy.

What is your fashion weakness?
I love accessories and I seem to want more every day. My pleasures are catered to in the smallest details. I am a pretty simple lady and my weaknesses are as follows, rings, earrings and bracelets. I call them Eva’s best friends.

When stepping out for an event, what are the things you consider?
I consider the time I am expected at the event and how long I am going to be there for. Above all things, time is key; I do not like to be late, I hate to keep people waiting and I do not overstay my welcome. I also have curfew for myself.

Do you prefer shopping online or you would rather go to stores yourself?
I do both. It depends on what I am looking for. Well for me, the best things for shop online are things that I can vouch for by staring at them. As a girl, you cannot really be so sure about the fit of dresses, pants and blazers by just seeing them in a photo. But I can do that for shoes and accessories, which is mostly what I buy anyway.
