On January 15, Beauty YouTuber James Charles slammed American rapper Asian Da Brat for her tweet suggesting that anything over $150 for a "face of makeup" was too expensive.
Check out American rapper Asian Da Brat's tweet below:
I "If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup you can go to hell respectfully"
James quote tweeted it and replied:
I "What a stupid tweet😐1 foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step🤯Its expensive to work as a MUA. Either pay an artists rate for their time & skill, do it yourself OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted🤷🏻♀️"
I "there’s no tone. i didn’t say SHE was stupid, i said it’s a stupid tweet. if she doesn’t want to pay $150 for makeup, she doesn’t have to, but she also doesn’t need to publicly shame working artists that priced their time and skill at that rate."
How exactly did fans react?
The majority of fans agreed with James, pointing out that you weren't only paying for the makeup, but also for the skills of the makeup artist. Makeup artists also joined in the conversation, thanking James for "having [their] backs".
I "Thank you James! As a makeup artist I appreciate you having our backs! ❤️❤️❤️❤️"
I "i actually agree with you! getting your makeup done is a luxury. if you don’t want to pay the price then you don’t need it. same with getting your nails and lashes done."
I "literally cost of makeup aside, your paying for someone’s refined skill. you’re paying for the years they spent practicing, and you’re paying for their time! if you want a $20 face you better go to sephora girl"
I "For real!! The amount of product ive bought for my kit is insane and most of it expired without even using it thanks to covid"
How did Asian Da Brat respond to James Charles' tweet?
Asian Da Brat has since hit back at James by telling him to stay out of her business and to clarify that she was citing "hood prices" as opposed to "Hollywood" prices.
I "What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you... im having a debate about HOOD PRICES Baby stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST👻"
I "like huh, boy BYE"
