Sun kissed 😘

hello fellas! Happy eid-el-fitre and happy holidays…strobing!…what’s stobing? Strobing in my opinion is the same thing as highlighting but with a little bit more for extra effect and glow.
I’l be sharing with you guys how i gave myself this sunkissed look.
Firstly, i always mosturize before applying my makeup. After the usual foundation routine i applied my concealer…for this look i used more than two shades lighter. I then set it all with powder and went further to apply my bronzer…

P.S; we’av been doing it wrong!!!

Hello dolls! hope your week is going well? Cause mine has been fabulous.
Most of us dont even know that we have this eyeshape. I also didnt realize
Untill i started focusing on eye shadow applications and had to familarize myself with my eyes and the eyes of clients. Trust me on this dolls, its not that complicated to know your eyeshape… ‘have decided to start with the monolids and hooded which is one of the most common eyeshapes.
I’l break it down then towards the end will put them back together. Lol

MONOLIDS
No crease (mostly people with flat surfaced eyes)
That’s it guys…preety simple;)
HOODED
You have a crease but its not visible.
HOODED&MONOLIDS
the lid appears smaller

P.S the Crease is the part of the eye where you normally apply transition colours.

The hooded and monolid may vary depending on the individual’s face. Some are more protruding than others.
I must say, it’s preety annoying to be hooded and have monolids cause it requires you to stepup your eyeshadow and eyeliner games but we up to the task. Right dolls💪
This is because our eyelids tend to wear away eyemakeup cause of the nature of the skin rubbing off on eachother.

Notice in the makeup finished look that i applied the colour white from my inner tearduct up to the center of my eye lid. This is to draw more attention to that area and brighten up my eye. At the outer corners i added some definition to the look by using a black eyeshadow then completed the look with a nude lip. I love nude lips.

So basically i used neutral colours for the eyes and lips and nude lips. This
Picture from pinterest would explain what i did better

I used three different shades of brown In this case and blended it out.

In taking these pictures, i worked while working (If there’s anything like that.lol)

P.S my work with at clementophotography is yet to be out…apparently clem wants to make sure the pictures are perfect and he also has a lot on his plate.

The carnation (spring trend)

Hello guys, so im super excited about this week and even this month. May is my birthday month and this week i would be sharing two posts…

imageSo lets get right to it… in creating this simple look for everyday outing and even for work, i made use of the carnation colour, which is a spring colour trend. This is is a light pink base. Then used the colour and a brown shade for the crease. My aim was to keep this look quite neutral so you can use a colour other than brown for the lid even when you want to look simple and chic .

image

So basically dolls, you can wear this look preety much anywhere and everywhere.
For the lips i used a nude shade to complete the look…if you like this look, why dont you recreate yours and send to me…have a blessed week.

Next, don’t go for the exact shade of your skin..mix it up by going for twoshades¬† lighter¬† or darker so you have a more defined and fab look.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to spice it up instead of a matte finish by adding glitters,Shimmer or just a simple neutral coat.
