April 2, 2020

Make-up is good. But this is only when it is done right. In our journey up and down Buhari’s internet, we found some make-up photos by Nigerian make-up artists that deprived us of sleep. We know our eyes cannot behold this alone, that’s why we are sharing them with you too. We are in this together, dears.
