Let's Talk Color Correcting | L.A Girl Pro Conceal




When L.A. Girl came out with their pro concealers a couple of years ago, it was a major hit in the industry. Makeup artists, beauty lovers, you-tubers, everyone wanted to get their hands on it. I got all 18 shades and 5 different shades for myself. Read the review HERE

So when I heard L.A.Girl released color correctors, I quickly logged on to IKATEHOUSE and placed my order.

Show and Tell | Maksins Eyelashes and Liquid Lipstick

How Much Is My Face Worth?



Hey Lovelies,

How are you all doing?

So I have been wanting to do this post for a long time, but with a twist. As a makeup artist, I have always wanted to know how much I have invested in makeup products and tools. I've never able to bring myself to get around the figures. I'm talking about makeup products and tools for my personal kit, the work kit as well as the studio kit.

All I can say is this: My business is a serious investment. For today's post I decided to do a full face routine with some high end products and add up the price of all products used. I saw this on CheeChee's Blog and I decided to give it a try...

Look of The Day | Soft Glam



Hey Beauts,

Yes  yes yes, I know I've been MIA... story for another day.

Long time no blogging, but if you follow me on other social media platforms, you would know I've been pretty busy. I got some new products I wanted to try out and this look gave me the perfect opportunity to do so. Its a simple look that can be worn as an everyday makeup look, but trust me to vamp up the look with some lashes.

Here are some more pictures and full list of products used...

Hey Beauts,

I'm back with another party inspired look, and this time it features glitters, pink lips and ankara. My friend and Colleague Jumoke of Eyesome Beauty gave me some glitter and pigments to try out and they've just been sitting in my makeup box doing nothing.

Bronze Glow...



It's Transformation Thursday Beauties!!!

I know I hardly put up my before picture on the blog but the truth of the matter is 90% of the time I go about my life with my bare face.  Ask my students and they will testify to that. I don't wear makeup to the studio at all. I wear makeup on special occasions, to church, and most especially for the blog. So just incase you see me outside the blog and I don'd have any makeup on , you should be able to recognize me.

For today's look I used earthly tones to give that radiant glow. See after pictures below....

Nivea Men After Shave Balm as a Primer?


Social Media influenced me!!!

It is so easy to jump on the bandwagon the moment there is social media buzz about something. And that's how I found myself using Nivea Men After Shave Balm as a Primer. Yes, you read right, men's after shave as a makeup primer.

Bimbo's Makeover | Salsa Party


Happy New Month Everyone,and welcome to March...

Thank God for the new month and most especially for today's rain. It's enough to be grateful for, because the heat lately has been so unbearable.

Today's post is a look I did on my sister on  Sunday. She had a salsa party to attend and wanted a makeover for it. Since it was a night thing, I decided to go with bold colours.

See after pictures and products used below...

My sister tends to have discoloration and hyper-pigmentation and it makes her neck appear way darker than her face. I can't be applying foundation on the neck most especially when the collar of her dress is yellow.

She loved her look even though she wasn't sure of the lips, but I convinced her to go rock it and she did.

What do you think of this look?

Bolwin Mink Lashes



When it comes to lashes, I am usually faking it. Yes, that is how much I love them falsies. All the looks I create for the blog I always use lashes to complete my eye makeup. Even if it's a natural look, I'm still gonna rock my false lashes. I mean come on, what's eye makeup without lashes? That's like a cake without frosting or icing.

Pin Up Passion...


I got tired of carrying my crotchet braids in  an afro state, so I decided to switch it up a bit and boom, I arrived at this updo, which happens to be my own version of a Pin Up hairdo.

With that done, I created this makeup look with a simple eyes and bright red lips, and that's how I came about "Pin Up Passion".

Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove


The Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove was on my wishlist for a really long time, and the truth is: I left it on my wishlist for long because I felt the price was steep, and I asked myself, "Is it worth it"? For a while I used The Brush Egg  ( see review HERE) to wash my brushes but I realized I could get better result with something more effective. I finally got the Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove and today I've decided to share my thoughts with this review.

Afe's Makeover



Something from my archives....

I almost forgot about Afe's Makeover. She got my contact from my friend and colleague Miss Glam of Glam O Sphere, hey girl, thanks for the referral.

Afe had a party to attend and wanted a makeover to compliment her outfit. The ankara was actually the aso-ebi, but she preferred to wear a lace and we tied the ankara in gele form.

2 Years Post Big Chop | The Journey so Far...


So I wasn't sure whether to do this post or not, and then it occurred to me that I actually haven't done a hair post in a very long time.

Today is the 6th day of January and it marks 2 years since I did the big chop. I always say it, cutting my hair and starting all over was the best decision I made for my hair.
