Nigerian designers and make up artists are on a roll this year. The recently concluded African Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) was an like an exhibition of the work of these makeup artists and designers.

Bellanaija described the showing as “This year’s edition as expected called for hair and makeup looks of cinematic proportions.” Obviously, the event lived up to expectations.

It is not only on the glamour and fashion end, but also at the controversy and fun level.

This big takeaway from the 2018 AMVCA’s yeah? You guessed right or wrong? Okay, let somebody move a motion for makeup artists to be officially regarded as artists, and be regarded with as much respect as we accord conventional artists. Fini!
