The reasons why our ladies of today cannot do away with makeup will shock you—and mind you it is not all of us [the guys] that like ladies who wear makeup…

No wonder…some of the makeups scare us away from you.

Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe says ladies of today apply so many makeups because it is the taste of men and they do that just to get attention…

Mercy explained in an interview with Newswatch magazine that;

“It depends on the individual, and I’ve always respected people’s opinion and how they choose to live their life. If you feel you are dark and you want to make yourself lighter; if that will earn you confidence and comfort, I’d say go for it, but do not damage your skin in the process.

“I keep telling my clients that my products are not chemical based, they are made of herbs, so you don’t need to exercise fear over my products. In the process of looking for comfort and confidence however, please do not get your life affected, because a lot of people have lost their lives because of this.

“And as for men who fall victim of the impersonators, I think the ladies are actually giving you what you want, so please appreciate people with dark, naturally looking girls. Therefore, guys are to blame for their actions. So on this note; we are going to go into men’s fashion in the nearest future,” she ended.

Mercy Aigbe, is married to a Nigerian hotelier and has three children and three stepdaughters.

She earned a degree in Theatre Arts from the University of Lagos in 2001, and joined the Nigeria movie industry fully in 2006.
