stylebyqueens (Tobi & Kike)

Style by queens consists of two beautiful young women who are both successful in their own ways. They play a rather big part in the Nigerian Fashion Industry, but I don't think they know how big of an impact they make just yet.

 Meet Tobi and Kike-


Tobi
What does style mean to you?
 Style means so many things! It is everything that I do and I always admire other peoples style as well as drawing influences from other stylish people around me and in the bloggersphere.

Who/what inspires you?
. Some of my closest friends inspire me. I know some amazing people below 25 who have achieved some amazing things, with style poise and grace! 
Style wise my inspirations are bloggers! Normal people who have amazing sartorial taste! That's where the real power is! 

A style secret you have
 I can't give away my biggest secret but I can give away a tip! Trends change all the time! I Don't spend bug bucks on trend pieces, i have a good rummage through h&m and even primark ! Then save the serious £'s for things you absolutely love! That way you can still be "on trend" but keep your personal sense of style! 




                      What is the one thing in your closet/wardrobe you can't do without?
 I cannot live without my statement necklaces! Kike bought me the most amazing piece I own, which I save for extremely special occasions! It's an obsession of mine I love statement neck pieces. 

Your makeup

My makeup varies! My foundation staple is Mac! For blush I tend to use Nars, eyeliner and bronzer I always stick to Bobbi brown! Recently I have bought a lot of lipsticks from Bobbi brown and mac, I love playing with lip colour it's a fun and easy way to change your look! 



                                                                          Kike
  What does style mean to you? Simply put, Style is an expression of my personality. 
John Fairchild put it in the best way: " 'style' is an expression of individuals mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style". 

 A style secret you have? I love poofy dresses (which is a bit odd because they don't really go with my style)  but what I love more is wearing them as skirts. Sometimes they look better with a nice blouse and/ or a blazer. 

 Who/what inspires you? My mum is my biggest inspiration. She's the strongest woman I know and she has a huge heart. Her sense of style is undoubtedly different from mine but she is a fantastic dresser! We share the same passion (or obsession) for handbags and shoes. My other inspiration is Lanre Da-Silva Ajayi. She is s fantasic designer, I like to call her a "fashion genius". Her fabrics, the cuts, her construction... Everything about her pieces is simply incredible. 


 What is the one thing in your closet/wardrobe you can't do without? Sounds really "basic" but I can't do without my leather leggings. They are just ideal for almost every outfit and oh so comfortable. 



The makeup you use: I use a very light face and neck foundation by MAC with a bronzing powder called "Deep" by Bobbi Brown. I'm addicted to all of MAC's lipsticks and lipglosses; my favourites are Enchantress, Viva Glam V, Mocha and Brave Red. For a gold finish, I use a body glow by NARS and Improper Copper by MAC (this highlights my nose and non-existent cheekbones!)
