Taos cosmetics is a fun, fresh & sassy beauty brand that is continuously evolving and improving for the benefit of our customers. We see beauty as an art whereby everyone is their own exquisite Picasso.

Makeup is a form of expression and individuals should express themselves in the best way to represent them. We are only here to enhance their performance. However , under that makeup is our beloved skin and we scrutinize every single ingredient that goes into our products to make sure there is nothing harmful to the skin. None of our products are tested on animals.

All our products are made in Canada but packaged in Nigeria.


Vanessa Onwughalu, Is the founder and creative director of the brand. Her passion was born when she was 9 years old out of the love for her mum’s red YSL lipstick. The staying power was very strong and as a young child she took note of this. At this same age was when she decided the name of her beauty brand TAOS , which is her mother’s initials. She started research in 2011 and samples and testings started in 2013. In the summer of 2014 the brand was born in the UK but didn’t launch till November 1st 2014 in Nigeria.
