“I like to make women feel beautiful,” said Bamike. She has been a make-up artist for three years at Sephora. And she is the first person I have seen who looked great with purple lipstick. When I photograph someone by the second frame, I can if they have been a model – and Bamike had been. “I loved being on the runway, I get such a thrill out of the excitement and the power of being in front of all those people. I was cheerleader all through school. I would perform in stadiums in front of 5,000 people. I miss that.” I asked her, like I ask all EVE’s, how she felt about being a woman. And she confidently stated, “I wouldn’t switch genders for anything. There is power in being a woman that if I were a man I wouldn’t feel. We are the stronger gender.” Bamike works full time at Sephora and she is studying Biology and she plans to study veterinary science at Cornell University.
