Maya Jama reveals her clever makeup hack to achieve the perfect bronzed eye

Maya Jama confessed she's used to having her best friend and makeup artist on hand to get her looking camera-ready but she's had to do without during lockdown.

The television presenter has still been hard at work on various projects, despite the coronavirus pandemic putting restrictions on people working according to government advice.

Luckily for Maya, 25, she's been able to socially distance where possible in the studio, but, without the help of her team of professionals she's had to learn to manage her own wardrobe and appearance and even stumbled upon her own hack.

The beauty, who rose to fame hosting MTV before joining 4Music and going on to bag her own BBC Radio 1 show, is a firm staple on our TV screens and hasn't let lockdown stop her from getting on with business.

Speaking to her fans on her Instagram Stories, Maya joked that she was going to "add MUA to my bio" after she had been able to achieve the perfect make-up look without the help of her long-time make-up artist Letitia Sophia.

"I'm not gonna lie not having my make-up artist with me has taught me some skills. Letish, I know you're locked down somewhere else right now but… I think I don't need you anymore!"

Maya, who dated award-winning musician Stormzy, giggled away, but shared that she used bronzer to get her natural smokey eye look, instead of an eyeshadow.

'Lol jk I added bronzer to my eyelids and eyeliner, that's as wild as it gets," she wrote alongside a close-up of her new look.

Tagging Letitia in the post, her pal joked in response alongside a crying-laughing emoji: "Gwan hunty you really did try with the bronzer on the eye and all sorts! Let's see how long the MUA life lasts!"

Maya was back to work after she attended the peaceful protest held in London's Hyde Park in support of the Black Lives Matter movement on Wednesday.

Thousands of people gathered in the capital's park to peacefully voice their outrage over the senseless killing of American man George Floyd at the hands of policemen last week.

Following the social media blackout on Tuesday, Maya joined members of the public as they took to Hyde Park to protest.

The former BBC Radio 1 presenter took to Instagram to share that she had taken to the park to join in with the movement.

She wrote to her 1.6million followers: "Peaceful protest today was beautiful to be apart of, so much unity," alongside a praying hands emoji.
