The company has grown from a small make-up business started in Port Harcourt in 2006 to a full-fledged beauty supply company operating in four (4) locations across the country.

An accountancy graduate of RSUST(Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Port Harcourt), entrepreneur and makeup artist known as the Bold and Beautiful, Olufunke had always had an interest in makeup and beauty as a whole which led to a door-to-door makeup retail in 2005. This passion grew stronger and she decided to make it official by first attending a beauty school in South Africa to expand her knowledge and afterwards officially established the Gifty’s Daughter Beauty and also decided to impact this same knowledge to other beauty lovers who are willing to acquire more knowledge.

She is a well-travelled person who constantly seeks avenues to acquire knowledge through different workshop, programs, short courses both home and abroad all in the bid to enhance her knowledge and skills in makeup and beauty at large. This has made her well known in the international beauty buying scenes in regions like Asia, Middle East, United States of America, United Kingdom, Europe etc. Education also plays a big role in the growth of her business and this has made her attend makeup classes by international celebrity makeup artists like Renny Vasquez, DannesaMyricks, OrlandoSantiago,Aj Crimson, Theresa Francine, Trent Simmons and so many more.
Currently the Creative Director of BLOT BEAUTY COSMETICS, a Nigerian brand already making waves internationally and being shown globally.
