‘Why I Don’t Makeup For Dead People Anymore’ — Banke ‘BM Pro’ Meshida

banke meshida biographyRenowned Makeup artiste, Banke Meshida popularly known as BM Pro has opened up on why she stopped makeup for dead people.

In an exclusive interview with Punch, she said:

I’ve been called occasionally to do make-up for dead people but I declined. I didn’t like the first experience I had. It’s such a sorrowful space to be in and I couldn’t deal with it. It left such a bad taste. I found it emotionally draining and made up my mind that I wouldn’t do it again. It’s a completely different skill set because one is working on skin that is not living; the colour and shading would be different. However, it is a very lucrative aspect of make-up artistry because not many people possess the skill. I do every other thing except making up for the dead.
