Face Beat 101
All the ladies joined us for the ultimate live face beat session with make up artist Kemi Bello (@kemibartistry). She gave a live make up tutorial for a clean full glam beat.
Focusing on skin care, skin prep, foundation application and sultry eyes for brown skin, the ladies watched and learned how to do this look aswell as asking her any questions about make up advice!
