What I've been up to........


Hello Beautiful People and Welcome to February....

I've been so busy for the last 2 weeks, there was absolutely no time to even sit down to blog anything. I'm back and better now so be sure to read more from me.

Oh by the way, I got a new laptop as well.... yaaaayyy!!! My old laptop was doing my head in, and that was one of the reasons I couldn't blog as often as I wanted. I'm glad that is all resolved now.

I took a short course in Makeup Photography about 2 weeks ago, and so last week I had to test out what I learnt.  Through out last week I was shooting. I had different volunteer models submit their faces for a makeover and then I took pictures.  Many thanks to all my models, I truly appreciate.

I took a lot of pictures because I was trying to achieve different things, so bear with me as this post is loaded with pictureeessssss!!!!

The first person to respond to my request for a volunteer makeover was my friend Gloria, and we decided to go for an Igbo bridal look, without all the drama of  heavy beads and double wrapper. Instead we went for a simple gold blouse, yellow scarf and green accessories.

Gloria's Look...



Products used: Eyes- hegai&esther brow gel- nubia, bh cosmetics glitter in gold and jungle green, mac eyeshadow- carbon, Face: mary kay time wise foundation- bronze 5, bmpro blush- obsession, Lips- house of tara lipstick- arese, and nyx lipstick - pale pink.


The next is Chioma, and for her we decided to do a bridal inspired look ( white wedding) 

Chioma's Look...




Products used: Eyes- hegai&esther brow gel- nubia, mac eyeshadows -expensive oik and embark, Face- mary kay foundation- bronze 500 7507, house of tara mineral blush- #70, Lips- jordana lip pencil- baby berry and nyx lipstick in pale pink

For Ijeoma we decided to create a party guest look. You know these days wedding/party guests are not smiling. 





Products used: Eyes- hegai7esther brow gel- nubia, mac eyeshadows in amber lights and embark,  Face- mary kay foundation bronze 504 &607, black opal blush- bold berry, Lips- zaron fussy fusha and nyx shocking pink


for Ijeoma's second look we switched to black smokey eyes paired with red lips. I used a black eyeshadow from miss ross 88 color palette, and  nyx lipstick in perfect red. 

The next model is Ann and she is dressed in a white/silver lace blouse, pink and silver aseoke and pink beads to match. This could also pass for an engagement look...

Our next model is Fatimah. Her look could probably go for a Yoruba bride's second outfit, for those who do the whole change of outfit thing.

Last but certainly not the least is Lola....  Dressed up as a Yoruba bride with lace buba, aseoke and beads to go with it.  I totally enjoyed working on Lola's face... Beautiful eyes and great facial structure too...
