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. What do I apply to my crease? In fact what is a crease in my eye?! However, the turning point came when I mastered my ‘two eyeshadow’…

Speaking Things into Existence

“Speak what you seek until you see what you’ve said” I am so glad that I travelled a few weeks ago, because I honestly felt like I was losing it. Losing it to all the pressures that I feel in my daily life. Pressures of trying to make something of myself as woman with dreams, but also a woman who has a family who depended on her. Things were tough. In 2016, I made some progress in admitting that things were not all great. I saw a counsellor and finally spoke to someone objective about…
