The beauty craze has taken over and everyone wants a face beat. I remember walking into a Bm pro shop on Saturday and I met a girl getting her face done to attend a wedding and it was about 4pm already. This trend is no longer unusual, although it was not the first time I’ve seen women walk into beauty shops to get their face done, it was perhaps the first time I saw one being done at 4:oopm.
This means a lot more women are living by the beauty standards many celebrities and makeup artiste have created, not many women can walk out of their houses without the perfect flawless makeover, besides if Toke the queen of slay can get her face beat then why shouldn’t anyone but do you just go to any makeup artiste?
Depending on what the occasion is, its not reasonable to walk into any random makeup studio, you should consider the fact that the artiste can either make or break your face. Not many makeup artiste know what they are about and not many know so much of their trade, there is only a handful of makeup artiste that know what they are doing going by the number of celebrities and politicians or society women they have as part of their clientele.
