Photography or Makeup artistry
Professional photographers and makeup artists are now very common today. The idea of being a “photographer” has now been completely redefined, especially since the advent of Instagram and other social media platforms. Photography is now not only a very lucrative business, but one that is also fairly easy to break into as long as the required expertise is available. As Africans love to have various colorful events and display it for all to see, they almost always want it covered.
Makeup artistry is also a very popular source of income today. With proper training, a comprehensive makeup kit and good client relationship-building skills, many have adopted as a somewhat stable source of income as well as a way to express their creativity and style.
