Over the past few years, make up artistry has become one of the fastest growing skills among Nigerian youth eager to be their own bosses.

Easy to learn and relatively cheap to start out, there are plenty make-up artistes making money out there, with the top dogs charging as high as N100,000 for a single look.

Many of these artistes use social media to share their works, and also tips and tricks for other make-up artistes.

If you’re looking for inspiration or lessons, these are 25 Nigerian make-up artistes that you should follow on Instagram. I’d let their works speak for them 🙂
