Hi guys!
Before I embark on today's rant, I want to apologize for the glitches on the website, these past few days , it has been fixed. If you noticed, I just recently renamed my blog to what it was originally. THE MAKEUP TALES. I have been having identity issues..lol! And also OluMakeovers has been phased out as well, it all just became messy and I was losing my mind (ok that is a bit far!) trying to figure out all the names!
Anyhoos, so my makeup blog is THE MAKEUP TALES, and you can find me on Instagram, twitter and facebook with that same name, for beauty shares, finds and cool stuff in general! 
Ok on to the rant!!

Children of the most high, believe it or not, people ask these types of questions! HOW MUCH FOR ONLY THE EYES!!

So let me tell you how this happened!

I had finished doing a brides's face sometime last year and we had a lot of time to take pictures etc..She was going to do a 2nd look later in the day and I didn't want to risk the traffic, so I just decided to hang around (mistake no 1! I have learned from this! Don't hang around biko...that is where people will have the opportunity to tell you all sorts and ask jaw dropping questions)

So one aunty (I believe we already know those types), came and sat in my chair and announced that it was her turn. I politely asked "turn for what ma??"
She answered with "ahh see question! time for my makeup"
Then I replied and said she wasn't booked with the package, and if she wanted to do makeup she would have to ask the bride, and that I would be paid before commencing..she looked at the bride, the bride said " aunty something, she's my own personal makeup artist, and she is here to do only my face, there is another makeup artist in the other room, and we already told you the amount" 

Then she stormed off, and started shouting about how the bride just disrespected her blah blah. Some other big mummies were telling her to calm down and not stress the bride. In my mind I was like..

Minutes after she came back. And asked how much I would do her makeup. I replied and she HISSED and stormed off, AGAIN! Lol. This was me at this point, 

Like "Salewa calm down"

Again, she came back, I knew this time was trouble. She had applied foundation and powder, and her blush was burning the whole room. Before I knew it she asked me! She asked me that question


This was me at first
the shoccckkkkk!!

Then the disbelief....

I just couldn't be angry!! In my mind I was like, aunty..

The bride just got up and went to tell her mum, (I had already done makeup for her mum as well). Her mum told her off in the way Nigerian parents scold their children!

It is like going to the doctor's ( not like makeup is as important as your health or anything like that) and saying he/she should treat you for the MALA and not the RIA abi just THY and not the PHOID!!

Well at the end of the day I was like

If I did not hang around for nothing,I would not have heard this!

Haba women of God, help us to fear God. Please!

Rant over!
Hope you guys have a fun weekend!
Be sure to check back next week, as I show you just the swatch for the new Zaron Mattes that I am really loving!
Till later,
