Loving the skin you are in…

I cannot talk about makeup without talking about skin care. Lately, I have been spending more time on my skin care routine and my makeup application. As a result of this, I have been receiving a lot of compliments from women asking me what to share what I am using on my skin and makeup questions. I have realised that black does crack if you do not take care of your skin! My skin: I have eczema prone skin and I have hyper-pigmentation and eczema around my mouth. I also have oily skin on my…

Fabulous Friday….You are a phenomenal woman

The first thing you are meant to do after leaving university is get a job right? Not just any job it must be a career enhancing job, that is well paid.

You have your job, your money and even managed to get on the property ladder. You need to be on your journey to marriage now right?

Brushes that take my makeup from 0 to 100 | My favourite brushes

As a beginner, I really didn’t know what brushes to go for. I could not afford MAC brushes and I didn’t even know where to start from. I started to build up my collection little by little. Real Technique brushes are affordable and great quality. If you didn’t know, now you know! As you will probably notice, most of these brushes are really affordable. I love MAC brushes but I love Real Techniques brushes more! These are the brushes that I reach for every time I do my makeup! Your makeup brushes don’t have to be…

Spend or Save | NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer vrs LA Pro Girl Concealer

  I know people who will swear by NARS everything. NARS foundation, NARS concealer, even NARS clothes (I am joking, NARS don’t do clothes!).  I try not to follow what every Youtuber buys, but sometimes the struggle is intense! I find myself thinking ‘it might work for me!’ so I caved in and bought NARS Creamy Concealer and NARS foundations (so much for resilience!). So far, they have been really good. I have used LA Girl Pro Concealer ever since I have started highlighting and contouring my face. It is a great product to use…

BHA | Will this sort out your oily skin?

I have heard about how amazing BHA products are for people who suffer from oily skin and hyper-pigmentation. To be honest, I really didn’t know too much about it, and how it could make a difference to my oily skin. I have never really been a sucker for skin care products, and have not taken care of my skin until now. I just knew I had super oily skin which caused acne breakouts. I had hyper-pigmentation caused by eczema on my face and the texture of my skin was not smooth. There have been plenty of…

Fabulous Fridays | Mixing Foundations to get your perfect shade

Ok guys, let me put it out there, I was ride or die for Mac’s Studio Fix in NW45. I have used MAC foundation from day 1. I think it is fair to say that practically everyone especially women of colour uses or have used MAC foundation once in their lifetime. MAC has the right amount of shades suitable for women of colour to draw us in like a moth to a light bulb! However, I have been trying to fly away from the MAC nest and try other brands. It has not been easy…
