LOLA’S INTRODUCTION MAKEOVER

Lola and I go to the same church, and earlier this month she asked that I do her introduction makeup. She’s such a gorgeous lady and looked stunning with the smokey look I created on her.


Since it was a first time for her using falsies, she requested that I trim the false lashes a little, which I obliged. However, choosing the lip color was a battle. We tried on a million colors, from nude to what we finally went with. In all, I’m glad she was pleased with the result.

VALENTINE’S DAY INSPIRED MAKEUP

Hello lovelies. Hope you’ve had a wonderful week so far. I know this post is not so late, since there are still two days to go to Val’s day.

Well, today’s look is a Val’s day inspired look. You want to go on a dinner date or see a movie with that special person, or whatever it is that you want to do, this look is a perfect go-to look for anything. As you can see from the pictures, I kept it easy on the eyes and went a bit bold on the lips *wink*.

Below is a breakdown of all the products I used; not just a breakdown, but also a step-by-step procedure on how I achieved this look *yaaay*. And so gradually, it’ll move from this to pictorials and then video tutorials when I get a camera, by God’s grace. The ministry is moving forward :D.

Enjoy!

*  First, I moisturized my face using Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion.

*  Then, I applied Phillips’ milk of magnesia all over my face as a primer.
*  I filled in my brows using Jordana eyeliner in Dark Brown, and highlighted with La girl pro conceal in Toffee (for the bottom) and Beautiful Bronze (for the top).
*  I set in the bottom highlight with an eggshell color from my Bhcosmetics 3rd edition eyeshadow palette.
*  I primed my eyelids with Tara eyeshadow primer and Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk.
*  After which I applied Milani compact powder in Medium all over my lid, didn’t allow it get to the crease area though.
*  Then, I used Maybelline all-in-one powder in Cacao on the outer corners of my eyes and blended up to the crease in order to get rid of harsh lines.
*  Next, I applied the Sleek eyeliner in Black on my upper lashline and used the mascara on my upper lashes.
*  I used Mary-kay timewise foundation in Bronze 5 all over my face.
*  I highlighted under my eyes, the bridge of my nose, the top of my cupid’s bow and my chin with La girl pro conceal in Fawn.
*  And contoured under my cheek bones, my temples and the sides of my nose using La girl pro conceal in Dark Cocoa.
*  Then, I went back in with my foundation brush to blend the harsh lines where the highlights and contours met.
*  I set in the highlights using Ben-nye banana powder and the contours using the Maybelline all-in-one powder in Cacao.
*  On my lips, I used a purple Davis lip pencil and topped it with Tint lipstick in Ruby. Then, I cleaned the edges of my lips with my highlighting brush.
*  I applied Milani compact powder in Deep all over my face, to further blend the highlights and contours, and my neck.
*  I applied Sleek 3-in-1 blush on my cheeks.
*  Then I used Jioney colossal kajal on my waterline and applied mascara on to my bottom lashes.


I didn’t use false lashes for this look, but please feel free to use them if you want to.

And there you have it. I would love to see pictures of this look if you get to re-create it. Do send to senabrushover@gmail.com, or upload on Instagram and tag @senabrushover.


I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS LOOK, PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS. THANK YOU GUYS.


Until later.

BASIC MAKEUP TOOLS YOU SHOULD OWN

Hi guys. 

In this post, I’ll be talking about tools that MUST be part of your makeup kit, even if you are not a makeup artist. 

1.  THE SPOOLIE

Source
First off is the spoolie, also known as the mascara wand. This is used for brushing the brows in place (so that all the hairs are laid in one direction) before grooming or filling in, and to soften harsh lines after filling in, thereby making the pigmentation even.



2.  THE ANGLED BRUSH

This is an angled brush. It is used to create precision lines underneath and above the brows, using a concealer, in order to make them more defined. After application, the concealer can be blended in using the finger or a blending brush.

3.  THE FOUNDATION BRUSH AND WEDGE
To apply foundation on to your face, you can either use your fingers, a foundation brush or a foundation sponge/wedge. The foundation comes in different shapes.
Flat brush
Flat-top kabuki brush
Round-top kabuki brush
And so does the foundation sponge….


4.  THE POWDER BRUSH

Finally, we have the powder brush. And like the name implies, it is used for applying the powder to the face.
                              
WHAT ELSE DO YOU THINK SHOULD BE A MUST-HAVE IN YOUR WHEN IT COMES TO MAKEUP?
