What if Money didn't matter



I just came across this inspirational video on Facebook and being a knowledge sharer activist, I thought I would be nice to share with my readers.

In the world we live in today, its VERY hard to do what you love in life without you doubting yourself for reasons like : “Is it socially acceptable”, “ Will my family be supportive or happy with me” , “Am I making a mistake” .............and honestly the doubts are endless.

Money to me has never been my priority when it comes to being a Makeup Artist (Yes I now call myself a makeup artist) because if I dont ..........I would be fooling myself.


We can only succeed in life if we BELIEVE.

Thats all I have to say for now....................WHEN YOU EMBRACE WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FALL IN PLACE.

MAKEUP | BLACK REFLECTS

 
 
 
 



Just FYI ...DO NOT USE THE MAC GREASE PAINT STICK AS A BASE FOR YOUR EYE MAKEUP, IT WILL CREASE LIKE DRY SKIN DURING HAMATAN SEASON (YOU’VE BEEN WARNED LOL). 

Excuse my little exaggerated FYI rant but on a serious note do not use the greasepaint stick from MAC as a base for your eyeshadow. I noticed during my tutorial that my makeup started to crease almost immediately after I applied it.

My advice to you if you want to try out this look is to use a black gel liner or a pencil. This will prevent your nicely done makeup from looking like a black HOT mess. 

For those of you who celebrate thanks giving HAPPY THANKS GIVING TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. I do not celebrate thanks giving but I love to participate + I love the whole black friday hype.

I actually ordered some stuff for my kit during black friday sales ( With a VISA debit card, anything is possible lol). 

I think I should just list what I used for the look and move ON.........Ok bye.

HEADWRAP #5

 
 



I have too be honest, this is my least favourite headwrap. I liked the idea but I did not like how it turned
out. The only reason I decided to post it was because my sister thought it was nice & I trust her to tell
me the truth.

I hope someone likes the tutorial.......................If you decide to try this tutorial, please post a picture on

HAUL | LANCOME PARIS COSMETICS

Teint Idole Ultra 24HR foundation −13 Sienne
Free gift L-R: Galateis douceur (cleanser), Tonique douceur (toner), Hydra zen (moisturiser), Visionnaire (serum),Genifique (youth activator), Lipstick (peach), Mascara:Hypnose, Travel size brushes
Juicy tubes hoilday set £18.50 
So guess who is finally back in LONDON ? MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

My service ( National youth service corp) year was greatISH. Serving Nigeria is not ajebutters for ( AJEBUTTER means kids that are maybe spoilt, use to people doing things for them or bascially kids that do not know how to boil water). 

Anywoo, My mothers birthday was yesterday #woohoo and for some reason she wanted to go to Oxford street which was weird because she hates that place. We popped into Debenhams just to have a look around, then suddenly I remembered I wanted to check out the Lancome and Chanel counter because I read they finally had foundations for dark skin women #canigetanamen. 

I ONLY wanted to try the foundation (I had no intention on buying it) but the sales rep with her juju (voodoo) ways tricked me into getting not only the foundation but a juicy tube holiday gloss set. 

I got the Teint Idole Ultra 24HR, Juicy tubes and a free gift. I'll probably use the glosses for my professional kit because at the moment I do not need anymore lip gloss.

So thats it folks my mini makeup binge.
