The Best ‘Black Girl Friendly’ Eyeshadow Palettes to Snap up this Black Friday

I usually don’t care for Black Friday. It was only introduced here in the U.K a few years ago and since then we have been confronted with scenes of people fighting for tv or other gadgets. Miss me with that mess please! This year I noticed that it wasn’t just electronics you could get a deal on. High street stores and online stores were doing Black Friday deals on makeup and beauty products as well. Not bad! Here are some eyeshadow palettes great for medium to dark skin tones which I am lusting over or…

Picking the right eyeshadow palette | The Best Eyeshadow Palettes for Dark Skin

If you have been reading this blog long enough, you will know that I am a creature of habit, and once I like something I use it to death! Me and eyeshadow palettes have not had the greatest relationship. I just didn’t know where to start when it came to eyeshadow palettes, well it was probably because I didnt know how to use and apply eyeshadows. Once I started to get the hang of applying eyeshadows I became more interested in eyeshadow palettes (see here for how I apply my eyeshadow). This year alone I…

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’…

Juvia’s Place The Nubian 2 Eyeshadow Palette | Review and Swatches

I have never really been an eyeshadow person. I was happy using my Sleek eyeshadow palette for around 2 years, only reaching for it when I felt adventurous. However, as I started becoming more interested in makeup, I started looking for an all rounder eyeshadow palette, that had the perfect combinations of matte and shimmer shades. I have come to realise that applying eyeshadow is not as hard as it looks. If you have good eyeshadows that are pigmented and easy to blend, half of the work is done for you.  I wanted a palette…

10 Great Tips for Wearing Makeup with Glasses

I wear glasses and contact lens. I have to admit that I am as blind as a bat! I cannot see a thing unless it is at the tip of my nose! I always found it difficult to wear glasses and makeup at the same time. Why? Because I cant see what I am doing if I take off my glasses! I am not about to be walking around with a wonky brow or a ‘winged’ eyeliner that reaches my eyebrows! Some of you guys understand the struggle! So i used to just avoid putting…

The Battle of the Falsies! | Comparing different false eyelashes

I am the definition of ‘bald’ on my eyes. My eye-lashes are thin and short. In fact, the struggle I go through to just make them look present is unreal. My sister and my daughter have got thick, long lashes….I am beginning to think that God was not smiling down on me in that area!!! I have noticed that makeup looks better with lashes. It adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’, a certain ‘va va voom’ to the look. Now, some people like ‘flying with wings’ effect…basically adding lashes that are incredibly long and…
