Eku Edewor Talks On Motherhood, Beauty, And Style On Accelerate Tv's "The Cover" Magazine

August 05, 2017


Gorgeous Eku covered the August issue of Accelerate TV's "the cover" magazine - and she talked on herself as a new mother, her obsession with beauty, and her style.

When asked about her style, she said; "i would say that my style is more of an eclectic elegance or exciting classic. It is sort of a contradiction because I like out-of-the-box pieces but I don’t like to be too trendy, I still try to look classic and I prefer to look quite clean in some ways. Even if the top might have a lot of drama, I like to anchor the look always so that it looks wearable. My look isn’t like a Rihanna kind of outfit, because I don’t commit all the way like she does most times. I think I have sometimes but it is not a consistent look. My day to day is crazy cool, I guess."


On how motherhood has changed her style, she said; "i definitely have an appreciation for flats now even though I was never really a heels-person. I wore heels to work, now I am always trying to incorporate ways that I can wear a lower heel or just more comfortable shoes but maybe when my baby is a little older and a lot more independent, (I’ll ditch the flats again). Maybe it’s because I am carrying her all the time and I always want her with me, I discovered that it is safer to be closer to the ground."



On when her obsession with beauty start, she said; "i have always been into beauty because of my mom; she is a product junkie. I remember just loving all her creams and perfumes and any sort of product she has on her vanity table. So when I started getting acne, that’s when I started researching a lot more into beauty products and how effective they could be. I have gone through so many stages, I have tried whole lines of products, I have tried so many brands trying to get my skin into perfection. It took me a long time to realise that I wasn’t going to get that flawless perfect skin that some people have. It didn’t mean that my skin wasn’t perfect, it was just different. I think you have to accept your skin type and just make it the best that it can be. Now, even if I have the odd zits, I am not even bothered but there was a time I was definitely spending all my money buying products trying to correct my skin."



When asked what beauty item she can't live without, she said; "i can’t do without my Narganics 24 carat gold beauty elixir. Narganics collaborated with me to create Aurum oil and it is a skin saver because it is multi functional. I use it as a Primer, a moisturiser, a day oil. I add it to my body cream to give anti-oxidant properties to my body cream. So it is definitely a can’t-live-without. I carry it everywhere with me. It was in my bag today, I used it just before the makeup artist did my look. It is just charged with really powerful healing oils and anti-ageing oils. It is my favourite product at the moment. The gold just gives you this inner radiance – I just love to glow. I love to have a greasy face; and I don’t mean greasy bad, but just that glow like ‘she just looks dewy’."
