As a make-up artist, dealing with different personalities is challenging — Vendajules
Celebrity make-up artist and entrepreneur, Adaeze Maryprecious Atayobor, popular with her brand’s name, Vendajules has opened up about some of the challenges she faces to satisfy her clients, saying it could be challenging handling different personalities.
The Ghana-based Nigerian professional and celebrity makeup artist and beauty entrepreneur recalled one of the difficult clients she worked with and ended up pouring wine on her face.
“Some years ago, I had a client who booked me for a session and I got there in time she wasn’t ready for me, so I decided to wait for almost an hour before I started her session. Long story cut short she poured wine on my face because I simply asked her to please give me a minute to blend out the concealer under her eye area because she kept getting up in the process of getting the makeup done.”
While she didn’t hold any grudges against the client, she disclosed that she welcomed the scenario as one of the rough days on the job, adding that such action would not stop her from giving the best of her services to anyone who appreciates the business of looking beautiful.
Speaking further about how her journey into make-up began, Vendajules who is the founder of Vendajules Slay World stated that she has been in the business of make-up for about eight years and has built a network of friends within and outside Ghana where she’s currently based.
According to her, “I have been privileged to work with some of the known celebrities in Ghana like Yvonne Nelson, Afia Schwarzenegger, Efya, Gloria Sarfo, Zynell Zuh, Juliet Ibrahim, and Selly Galley, Efe Grace, Mercy Aigbe, Ruth Kadiri among others.”
She also added that her brand is currently working on its upcoming masterclass, which according to her gives a student a chance to be empowered. “We set up one student to be ready to go for any makeup job at any time”, she enthused.
