Fire the makeup artist! Akothee causes an online stir over makeup fail

It seems singer Akothee cannot catch a break from her critics. The mother of five stepped out over the weekend with her current bae wearing an off-shoulder gown.

In the photos, she shared the couple is captured walking hand in hand. But despite their smart appearance Akothee’s fans couldn’t help but point out how ‘awful’ her makeup was.

The skin colour on her face and neck did not match with the skin on the rest of her body. This is because the makeup used did not match her skin colour.

“Jesus Christ, please fire whoever does your makeup up and those that style you, concerned fan!” @el_santos_mexico said.

The dark-skinned singer was caked with different colour products on her face. She later commented saying that the problem was the lighting and not her makeup.

For Akothee this is the first time having a faux pas moment as she has always maintained a natural look.

She introduced her current boyfriend Omosh to her fans in September. This is after a video where she was seen frolicking on the sand at a beach shore in Mombasa with her supposed new mzungu bae surfaced online.

In an Instagram post, Omosh explained how the two met, “The first day I encountered Esther, I met her through my friend Pius who lives next to Lake Zug, she was in France heading to Italy for her holidays, and after this video call I said to myself I must meet her in person.

Then Pius convinced her to come over to Switzerland, and on July 16, Esther Akoth Kokeyo was mine, I didn’t care about her status or who she is, I fell in love with her brain, spirit, personality, and energy and she is beautifuuuuuuullll @akotheekenya.”
