Adamawa it is, and Yola is the state capital. Located in the Northeastern part of the country. We have a lot of talented youths in the beauty,entertainment and fashion industry. But today I am going to focus on the beauty industry,make up to be precise. Make up is becoming a thing in Yola, a source of income for most ladies. It’s one thing to be called a make up artist and it’s also another for you as a MUA to know what you are doing. For Example, matching the right shade of complexion products to a client’s skin tone,applying make up according to a client’s face shape and other things. In this post I have compiled a list of the best makeup artists in Yola who are good in what they do because their skills are commendable. I have never gotten glammed by any of them,because I have never had anyone do my makeup. Not my fault though,that’s how MUAs behave,it’s a tradition (winks)….
There are 11 of them. And before anything else,I want you to know that this listing is not a ranking. All of them are good in what they do, each one of them has her own signature skill. Are you ready? Let’s get down to the biz of the day.
Shelong Longmut Jide.
Shellz essence and bridals is the brand name. If you ask me I would say she is the “Queen of soft glam”. She creates understated looks that leaves her clients still looking so much like themselves, but just with a little something extra. In 2019, she was awarded “The make up artist of the year” for Adamawa celebrities and Achievers Award (ACAA2019). A hot momma that still slays and slays others too,that’s an achievement.
