There are countless talented make up artist but very few who posses the entrepreneurial skill required to take their talent to the next level TIARA WADA has proved to be one of those few.
Make up is truly an Art, and it might be true that beauty just doesn't depend on the outside, when you have gorgeous make up, I think several ladies would agree with us that the glow extends to your inside and you become more beautiful on the inside Lol..... The amazing transformation some ladies go through after a make up session shows the art part of the make up world and this days more movie makers use make up to transform their actors and characters.
Notice that both names "MAKE UP" and "MONEY" both start with "M" you can make tons of cash for yourself as a make up artist, you just need the skills and talent to transform a plain face to that of a princess......... Make up artist is a very lucrative venture and a big business in Nigeria and grows as you expand your brand, your consumers are mainly individuals, wedding bridals, award night etc.
all said once again meet miss Tiara Wada get to see some of her works and get to know about being a make up artist.
