  • Rosina shares that she was approached by a man who wanted to treat his sister with makeup for her wedding day, and he wanted to use her services.
  • "I have never been approached by a guy to do his sister's bridal makeup. I thought he must love his sister for this, and you know [I thought it was] very thoughtful," she says. 
  • In the days leading up to the wedding, they continued to communicate about general topics until he said he was attracted to the MUA.
  • However, when the wedding day came around, Rosina discovered that the man was actually the groom and sneaking around behind his new wife's back.

Their conversations started taking a different turn when the man started telling her how he finds her attractive and would want to take her out on a date. Rosina shares that her response was, "Let's wait until after the wedding."

Fast forward to the wedding day, and all goes well. Instead of leaving the venue after doing the makeup in the morning before the actual wedding ceremony, the bride asked Rosina to stay longer to touch up her makeup for the wedding photoshoot later in the day.

Then came the time for the shoot, and obviously, the groom had to be there. That's when Rosina discovered that the so-called brother was actually the groom. "Imagine my surprise when I found out that the guy was the groom," Rosina shares.

Hearing the bizarre and frankly quite disturbing story, one of Rosina's followers, Maddieyusuf, jokingly commented, "I talk too much!!! I would have already told the "sister" that she has a great brother." 

Another follower, Abijahnduati, pointed out that Rosina had played her cards right, saying, "You are smart for saying let's wait until the wedding is over".  Another follower, Knoerine, commented, "Brother of Jezebel and son of Pharaoh".
