If you keep up with the antics of guru's in the makeup twitter/ social media hemisphere then these two names are very familiar to you. Shayla (@makeupshayla) and Amra (@amrezy), two very talented women in their paths, were once the best of friends. They were at each other's houses, went to Beyoncé concerts together, vacations together, you name it. They were girlfriends if not besties. Now let's take it a couple of months back. Jeffree Star, another famous name in the makeup industry (but he's annoying, a racist, and disrespectful) took to Snapchat to fire shots at Shayla over comments said about another woman at a PR event in New York. Below is the video of his Snap Story and tweets directed at Shayla.

Shayla's Snap Story from that day is nowhere to be found but I did listen to it and it didn't sound like she was coming for anyone but hey I'm just on the outside looking in. Now let's get onto how Amrezy got tied into this incident.
Now let's fast forward to two days ago when the tea got hot again, it all started when Shayla tweeted this...
It's not really shade but it is. But if you were a real friend, why would this tweet bother you?? After this, Amra took to snapchat to rant (as usual) here is her Snapchat rant about Shayla below.

First of all, if anyone can get you this mad to take to Social Media and yell at your phone like you're crazy, seek mental help. That's not even a joke, I'm dead serious. Amra has always had this thing of calling out her "haters" but boo, if you're making money and you're happy let it go. Sitting on social media arguing with people all day is trash. Make your money and slay. But honestly, if you weren't side eyeing Amra after the false claims Jeffree made about Shayla and you're supposed to be my friend, YES WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AN ISSUE. Amra has always been known as the makeup girl to speak her mind. You have all the balls in the world every other day but when Jeffree comes into it, it's a different story (PROTECTING THAT COIN). I'm not saying she had to take Jeffree's side but notice when things are wrong. Now let's point out the reasons why Shayla cut Amra off and why she's the right one in this situation:
Wait, the tea gets even hotter! Take a look at this Twitter thread of a former friend of Amra's!
I hate to unfollow Amra on everything because she serves looks but I can't get with the nasty attitude, a fake friend, and people who act fake tough for social media in general. But I can't help but realize the fact that Shayla is really the only black woman in her lane right now (Of course we have Jackie Aina as well but y'all get what I'm saying). There's like this thing with Black Makeup enthusiasts/ MUA's on social media that kind of like a sisterhood. I feel like with the other's they don't really have that. Honestly, I don't even watch or pay attention to other races in makeup besides white because WHY would I? I'm a black girl, I need tips for my melanin skin. The most I'll take is some skin care advice from other races but generally, I'm watching black girls because I can relate to them. I'm not trying to bring race into it but being the only black girl in the group, you kind of have to take that into consideration. I think Shayla finds some REAL FRIENDS that are in the same lane as her and that she can relate to. She doesn't need to but it would be nice to see. Honestly Shayla, keep grinding and stay beautiful. Let the haters hate. Let Amra keep yelling in her phone about your tweets and her "haters" lol. Stay tuned though! This tea just might get reheated! Until next time!
