A Calabar-based makeup artist identified on Instagram as @97th._artistry recently got social media users buzzing with reactions. The lady gained attention after using fresh pepper in a makeup hack.
While fruits such as strawberries, beets and cherries are used as makeup, it is uncommon to see pepper fruits for such purpose - even worse, habanero pepper.

In trying out the supposed beauty hack, the makeup artist used the habanero pepper for hers, even though she stated that her lips were already plump.
After cutting the pepper in half, she applied it directly on her lips. Minutes after, @97th._artistry was seen teary-eyed and dabbing over her lips as the heat took over.
Interestingly, she ended the video highly recommending the hack despite the discomfort it caused her.
