Who Am I? | What are my foundation shades?

Who Am I? Some people call me Temi, and some people call me Tope, my full name is Temitope by the way.

Are Foundation Sticks making a comeback? | Best Foundation sticks for Women of Colour

My ‘Two Eyeshadow’ Makeup Look | 6 easy steps

Hey my lovelies, how y’all doing? Great I hope! If not, then hopefully I can cheer you up. Using eyeshadows can seem so complicated. Similar to the offside rule in football, I just couldn’t understand it. I looked at an eyeshadow palette, and I might as well been trying to figure out quantum physics because I didn’t know where to start from when looking at all the colours.
