FOTD | Too bold

Applied makeup at 9am

If you follow me on twitter you would know I had the most annoying eye infection in the world ALL

THANKS TO CAMP. Anywoo this is the look I wore on my birthday (yesterday). I'm going through 

a brown smokey eye phase at the moment ( I think the dry dusty weather has something to do with it).

Its harmattan season (dry season) now in Nigeria, so wearing foundation has been really tricky but I 

have fixed that problem by mixing two different kinds of foundations. I mixed Laura Mercier's tinted 

moisturiser #dewyfinish with Make Up For Ever's Matt velvet foundation #mattfinish. The combination  

is the perfect balance for this kind of weather. I did not bother with a mattifying primer because my skin 

is not as oily as it use to be. When it comes to foundation, I advice you change your normal routine as 

the climate changes. I have noticed over the years that my skin changes whenever I move to a different 

environment, so switching up/adjusting my routine has always been a priority.

    @ Anonymous —Could you please send me a message via the the "contact me" tab on the top right corner of the blog. I do not want to post the seamstress number on the internet (security reasons)

    @Lydia-rose—thank you #blushing..I use to take vitamins but i stopped a year ago. I drink alot of water especially now that i have moved to Nigeria. I already have Skin care blog- Link -

  12. You look fabulous! I like your choice of lipstick shade. Matte pink is also my favorite color. I've read in skin care reviews that it matches all skin tones.

  13. First of all, thank you for your laser clinic australia describes cellulites as the dimpled appearance of skin caused by fat deposits that are just below the surface of the skin. The best way to get rid of these is exercise and proper diet.
