3. LAYEFA BEAUTY
This Lady has a special place in my heart, from following her on Instagram, watching her YouTube videos, to finally meeting her. Meeting her made my love for her grow even bigger. She did my makeup last year and it was so so beautiful. Definitely looking forward to another glam session with her, ’cause her skin game is 100%, I tell you. And from my first hand experience the care and precision when doing her clients’ makeup is really impressive. She’s just too much, slaying it on YouTube and in the Makeup business world, sure, there are other persons who will attest to this.

5. LYDIA STANLEY
To me, Lydia Stanley is the Nigerian SFX (Special Effects) queen, Mehn! Her SFX looks are always so bomb and they look so realistic. Do you know she is actually self taught? That blows my mind every time I see her posts.
She doesn’t do only special effects, she also does makeup on Clients in Kaduna, and she is so interesting to watch on YouTube. You should definitely check out her channel. She has worked on the Beautiful Mercy Johnson.
