    Bimpe is slowly brushing Banke Meshida aside, it’s her turn to shine.

      Do you have to compare? The sky is wide enough for all birds to fly

      I don’t think she is or can ever brush Banke said. Even though they both do make up, they have areas they are good at. For bridal i will give it to Banke, while for fashion editorials ild give to Bimpe. Although clearly Banke is also good at that, I can’t say the same for Bimpe’s bridal looks. So please stop comparing them, they are both exceptionally good.

    When your customers include the DKNY, Jason Wu and others, we can then compare. I bet you guys know what it takes to impress those brands. For now, no be topic for discussion, let your work speak for you.
