Megan Thee Stallion is in a bit of a feud with her MUA.
It has been quite the year for Houston hottie Megan Thee Stallion who became a breakout star with her women empowerment persona and uber confidence. The “Hot Girl Summer” rapper is also a star on social media and loves to share her personal life through videos and live streams. Recently she’s been giving herself credit for completing her own makeup looks, but her personal MUA claims she hasn’t been beating her face all by herself. Under a preview video for Megan’s feature in Vogue Magazine, the makeup artist decided to call her out.
The editorial followed Megan around for 24 hours with the help of influencer Jordyn Woods, who asked the MC how she learned to do makeup as she applied powder to her face. Megan explained that she learned from her grandmother, who used to buy her eyeshadow as a kid. So it was awkward timing for her MUA, @Akilaface to comment “Makeup By Akilaface,” in the comments. “And me,” Megan replied. But the MUA continued to insist that she had little to do with the process.

“No you filled in your eyebrows and put on your lighter MAC powder when I was done,” he said. “This is not a makeup war I always do your makeup and never get credited. That is hurtful.” But Megan didn’t let the comment slide and quickly clapped back at the accusations. “Woah. First of all if you was really “hurt” you could’ve txt me this. Second you right it ain’t a war bc we all kno I do my makeup and you touch it up or I let you start it and I’ll finish it.”
Fans quickly reacted, citing how it was unprofessional for him to call her out in public and that the hottie tribe was always aware that he was involved in her styling. Some fans even pulled old receipts of Akilaface admitting that he and Meg often collab on her cosmetics. Akilaface also works with artists like JT from the City Girls. But it will be interesting to see if he and Megan continue working together after this incident.
