The gele is a type of head wrap that is worn by Nigerian brides on their wedding day. It is often matched with equally dramatic cosmetics, such as a thick foundation, strongly sculpted cheeks, vivid eyeshadow, and bold lipstick. Together, they give Yoruba brides a style that is both stunning and enduring.
As well as signaling to others that she is now a wife, a bride can use gele to showcase her elegance and attractiveness. Alluding to traditional Yoruba beauty standards, the makeup works as an extension of the head wrap to lend depth and dimension to the whole image. Fabrics of many different hues and designs are used to create this accessory. The bride's beauty and the wedding dress's aesthetic are both enhanced by the usage of makeup. A Yoruba bride's appearance can be transformed with the help of gele and makeup to achieve a truly unforgettable and personalized style. Images of gele and its accompanying bridal cosmetics are provided below.
