About Sunday

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today, I am taking you right back to Sunday and by that you know this blog is well late. The sermon was what I needed to hear. It was about how Paul’s eyes were set on Christ who assured him many times when he was in prison that He will be with him.

He was aware of the sovereignty of Christ Jesus so he was not shaken. This teaches us that the more you know Christ the better you are able to face tough challenges.

The entire look:

The foundation I used for this look was the L’Oréal True Match in Dark Coffee. I used mac prolong concealer in NW45; the one in the tiny pump and mineralised skin finish powder. The gel liner is from lightinthebox and MUA eye shadow in chamoisee. For my lips I basically mixed L’Oréal the bigger the better and Revlon’s Mink Lipstick. The dress is from H&M and shoes are from New Look.

Finally, I hope you have had a blessed week.

Until next time stay blessed.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Another week complete and one about to begin. Today’s sermon was to trust in God in all circumstances. So if you are going through a lot remember Paul when he was imprisoned and Job; He who begun a good work in you is faithful to complete it. God was faithful.

Today’s dress is a max dress I have had for a long time. I bought this dress from Miss Selfridge.

I am sure I have mentioned this before but I rarely wear makeup due to the fact that I’m very lazy.

IMG_20180429_221523

I like the length of the dress but it was not loose enough as it is a size UK 4. I have come a long way with trying to put on weight so I am glad.

The thought of taking it off and cleansing your face is what I find tiring. But I do like it when I have it on. It is not something I can do Monday to Friday but we shall see as time goes on.

The eye shadow is bare minerals morning glow and MUA champagne. Lipstick is Gosh the red but the lip liqueur and Lipstick. Mascara is loreal volume million lashes. Eye brow pencil is Iman cosmetics.

For the makeup I was going for royal blue champagne and red lips and no one was stopping me. 😁

I have done this look before, I wanted to revisit with a bang . For foundation I mixed revlon in mocha and lancome in shade 16. Revlon is too cool and the lancome is too dark so together they work well. I feel.

LRG_DSC00260

I will try and do a beauty post every sunday as it is the day i wear makeup and some saturdays if i am going to a wedding

The truth is I only wear makeup on sundays when i am going to church. I am a bit lazy when it comes to doing my makeup during the week because it means i have to wake up a wee bit early lol. I will share some of today’s look with you.

LRG_DSC00202

How did i do? I am not an MUA but to be able to do my makeup like one is always my aim

I used the MAC studio Fix foundation in NW55, the coverup concealer in NW45 mineralised skin finish in dark deep and LA Girl concealer in Fawn. Lip liner is Barrym in plum and lipstick is Revlon pinkpout.  #Thatsall

The hair is a whole different story. But this is my signature hair it frames my face well i think. The way i have worn it also fits my face well. Personally i do not like hair in my face

Until next time, have a blessed week.

The idea was that my cake match my dress and my makeup too 😊

Hello and welcome to my blog. It has been a while since i came on here with a lengthy blogpost. I have been quite busy with travelling up and down the country and buay in general.

IMG_20180311_181830_040

This is the makeup i did for the sunday of my birthday weekend. I used the BH cosmetics solar eye shadow pallette. the hair was done for me by a friend

On the saturday i got my makeup done by a friend which i loved. I looked completely different and as it was not any ordinary birthday, i was happy with the outcome of the entire look. I had been planning this look in my head for weeks.

PhotoGrid_1520197168886~2

I bought the dress and shoes from Asos. They were quite affordable as they were in their sale section. I think the shoes were £18.00 and the dress was £15.00. But my cale cost more than my outfit put together.

I went out to central London to eat with a few friends.i went to a restaurant called Bangalore Express and the experience was not great as it was during the short blizzard period in London so it was cold inside. They said their heating had broken down and they made no substitute *roll eyes.

This is their coconut rice with their lamb masala. A lot has change since the last time i went there. It did not feel like for the better. The ambiance was off, no background music just noise from a party down sta

Just so you can see and apprecoate the art on my face. If you are in the UK and need an MUA let me know i know a couple of people.

I was initially looking for a dress for a wedding then i stambled upon this one and a burgandy one. In the end i wore Karen Millen to the wedding.

PhotoGrid_1519542017268

This is the silk Karen Millen dress i wore to the wedding. I have had this dress since 2011. I bought it for a wedding.

I got the hair inspiration from Shameless Maya after my ideas were taken by others. But i liked this hairstyle alot. I was going for the bad girl look so hopefully i achieved it.

I was the black rapanzel that weekend. i got this dress from asos as well. it has a slit on the other side. I believe this one was £18.00. I wore this with my Nine West sandal shoe.

My 2017 favourites looked something like this

Hello and welcome to my blog. This os a long awaiting blog and thua there is not going to be too much words.

IMAG1177

As you can see i was very busy with loreal during last year.

My 2017 favourite is mostly the loreal infallible line. Simply because they did the job for me. I got pretty amazing look from the line. I played around with foundations from deep golden to deep cool, mixing cuppacino and espresso as i was not sure which was my shade but got my shade in the end which i believe is 11N Dark Coffee. I could be wrong but i like that finish to the deep golden and deep cool. The matte lip colour: Forgive my sin was my favourite lip colour too. I am in my red phase still.

PhotoGrid_1517691729993

Im currently wearing forgive my sin in this picture not too sure which shade of foundation of the true match im wearing. The eyeshadow is MUA

The BarryM lip pencil in plum also helped me alot. As mentioned before i love their lip penciles. I may try their eye shadows this year.

Revlons pink pout with BarryM lip liner Plum

Revlon’s pink pout has also been a staple lip colour I reached for. I have worn it many time last year.

Iman cosmetics eyebrow pencil. I prefer the colour to other eyebrow pencils i have tried.

PhotoGrid_1517691369333

I was going for a natural look with the true match in this picture. You can call it my no makeup makeup look.

For concealer i prefer and use MAC’s prolong wear and cover up. It just does the job. I have tried other concealers and let’s just say i returned to my first love. In addition to their skin finish in dark deep. I think.

Not forgetting Fenty beauty in 460 although it looks red when first applied, it does give a good matte finish and matches me perfectly.

Until next time, its bye from me

First impression: Revlon colorstay foundation combination/oily

Beauty, IMAN Costmetics, Journey To Clear Skin, Makeup, Natural Hair, Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently bought a few shades of foundation from feelunique and have been trying them since sunday. On sunday i wore the loreal True Match in 10N Cocoa. The foundation looks dark in the packaging but a bit bright when i put it on.

IMAG1186~2

Revlon ColorStay 24 hours wear in Mocha | Shade 450.

Yesterday i wore it in 11N which is Dark Coffee and it was my match yeps!. I might mix the two namely 10N Cocoa and 11N Dark coffee in the future.

PhotoGrid_1517313950251

That corporate swag

Todays look is the Revlon Colorstay 24hour Wear, combination/oily,  shade:450:Mocha. I really like the finish look of just the foundation. It is lightweight with a medium coverage so you will have to use more to cover any hyperpigmentation. I bought two for £6.45. The reason i bought two is on the website it states that there is salicylic acid in it and since my skin attracts acne i thought this would be perfect for my skin by keeping the acne at bay while looking flawless.

Thought on this foundation 

At the moment i really like it and would buy it again. I would use it as an everyday-work foundation because of the natural feel and look it gives me.

My take on the no-makeup makeup look. My eyebrows are not identical twins. The lighting in the toilet though

Since I rushed doing my makeup this morning, my eyebrow kind of do not match. Reminder: They are not identical twins. But when i do wear this again i will share more pictures.

Finally i used MAC’s skin finish in dark deep to set my face and Nivea’s lip balm in Soft Rosé to add a touch of light pink to my lips. I also used Revlon’s eyeliner and BarryM’s black eyeliner pencil to line my water line. The eyebrow pencil i am using is from Iman Cosmetics. I used loreal’s infallible matte spray to finish it all off. I wish i had done a light contour but i was literally rushing. All this pictures were taken at work in the toilets – not literally but you know what i mean. 😬

The hair

dav

I left the front part then sort of corn row the rest back and corn row the front part and tuck it in to look like its one corn row from the front to the back. Hope this makes sense. Aim is to protect the ends because its very cold. I slick the front down with a bit of olive oil eco styler gel 

Until next time, its bye from me
