Afmua is taking the lead in empowering the pillars of the glamorous billion dollar beauty empire, who carry out most of the work and earn the least due to a lack of education and promotion.

What our people say about AFMUA

As a make-up artist and a colleague herself, Elohor founded the competition wishing to do something for the industry, to help younger artists, popularize the craft and elevate all of it to a higher level. With many make-up brands making comments on how the beauty exhibitions around the world are becoming less effective, Elohor saw the contest as the future of make-up and now wants to see it gain importance in Africa.
