AFRICAN-INSPIRED SHOOT + GIVEAWAY

The theme of this shoot was chosen to represent an African woman, one who is a hero in her little way, who can speak up for herself and is not easily intimidated by negative situations, and who wants to impact people as much as is within her power.

Olanrewaju Adebonaย helped bring this idea to life. See pictures and products used below. Continue reading “AFRICAN-INSPIRED SHOOT + GIVEAWAY”

Hello ladies.

If you follow me onย Instagram, you must have seen a picture of this look. This was rush work actually. Woke up that morning, feeling really good and bubbly because this blog which was down for a couple of days (got me very very worried) started to work again. Yipeeeee!!

Anyway, I thought to myself, “Why not just do a full face glam to the office today?” Usually, I do a normal look to work; brows, eyeliner, foundation (when I feel like it) and powder. My colleagues know I’m a makeup artist, but the comments I got on this day! baby girl was walking on stars. Lol.

Happy 24th birthday to me!!

Birthdays always get me excited; you should see the huge grin on my face as I type this.

I have come a long long way. God has been my guide, my helper, favoured me more than I deserve, and for this I’m extremely grateful to him.

Anyway, to the post for today. A friend of mine recently asked me (in her own words), “what’s the latest foundation o, let me not carry last”, lol. And I thought to share it and more with you guys. Continue reading “CURRENT FAVES + IT’S MY BIRTHDAY”

BUKOLA’S TRANSFORMATION

PicsArt_08-23-10.49.24 (1)

Bukola is my trainee/friend who I met a little over two months ago, and she’s one of the friendliest, sweetest people I’ve met in my lifetime. She has a very open mind, always asking questions and willing to learn. And we look alikeย *wide grin*, at least that’s what people think (I still don’t see the resemblance).

Anyway, she finished with her training class and I decided to work on her face. Why I didn’t do that sooner, I honestly don’t know, because her face is a makeup artist’s dream; full brows, eyelids, she even has a beauty spot! Sigh. Continue reading “BUKOLA’S TRANSFORMATION”

How To Fix A Broken Powder

Hello guys. Happy new month to you. The year is surprisingly running fast, which I like, lol. I really hope you guys are doing okay.

Today’s post has been a real lifesaver ever since I discovered this fix-it tip from other blogs. I’m certain it would be of help to everyone that follows this blog (and every other person you refer here). I mean, I’ve had to deal with messy makeup bags because of some broken compact powders, eyeshadows, bronzers and the likes, which I eventually had to throw out, and we can all agree that it isn’t a good experience at all. With the way the economy is, this isn’t even the best time to spend extra money replacing broken makeup items; I’ll just cry on my way to the store.

INSTRUMENTS REQUIRED:

* Rubbing Alcohol (or spirit, as it’s popularly known).
