All set and ready for church

Hello and welcome to my blog. Yesterday we had a lovely weather in the UK. The sun was out so it was hot.

The sermon was about based on questions the disciples asked Jesus in Matthew 24. When shall these things be and what are the signs of thy coming? It was concluded that it is not our job to try and read signs of His second coming to to focus on our responsibility as Christians and live a life faithful before God. Remind me of R C Sprolls phrase “To live all of life Coram Deo” which means to live life in the presence of God even though you don’t see Him.

The look

As the sun was out, I decided to wear another african print dress. See the slide below. This dress was gifted to me and as always the shoes are old new look shoes.

The look: makeup

The eye shadow is MUA copper and another colour similar to the greenish dots in my dress. I used MAC foundation in NW55 this time, I do not use this that often because it for special occasion as it a bit pricey. The lip colour is mainly BarryM lip pencil in chocolate. I say mainly because I used another old Mac lip gloss and bare minerales mascara on the lashes. I wanted to tone down the colour since the dress was very bright and cheerful lol.  I am not a big fan of lashes as I usually wear glasses although I have a few of them. I was wearing contact lenses in this picture so if my eyes look a bit strange that is the reason. The aim is now to play with colours on the eyes while still keeping it natural.

That’s all for this blog. Until next time, stay blessed.

All Madeup with MAC studio fix fluid, concealer and prolongwear powder

Beauty, e.l.f Velvet Matte Ruby Red, Makeup, MUA Eye Shadow

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is yet another beauty blog about my recent MAC purchases. I have worn this on three occasions; twice last weekend and on new years eve so i thought a review was befitting.

IMAG0483

A quick recap regarding my recent purchases are the NW55 Studio fluid in NW55, concealer in NW45 and prolongwear powder in deep dark.

The fluid gives you a full coverage and holds up really well. It covers dark circles around the eye area and gives you a good canvas to work on and due to this, you can actually wear the fluid and powder for a natural no-makeup makeup look. For primer i used a bit of the loreal and milk of magnisia as i was going to be out for a while. I concealed with the MAC NW45 and set my under eye with ben nye powder in topaz and ebony to contour. I also used the Anastasia Beverly Hills glowkit  bronze  to highlight.

Having applied the MAC NW55 foundation on

My thoughts

I really love this foundation shade and would buy it again but will only wear it to weddings or other events that my makeup will be required to be on point.

When i applied the foundation in NW55 and concealer in NW45. You can stop at this point for a more natural look or opt for an eye liner.

I will also keep to the NW55 although i think there should be another shade between that and the NW58. Its slightly bright by itself in pictures but i can work with it. One can wear the foundation and powder as is because it gives you a really good coverage in addition you can get really good pictures at this stage as well.

I took this pictures using my Huawei P8 and using filter demist which helps make every detail of your makeup stands out and one layer beauty filter.

Apart from the NW58 i feel MAC foundation when applied tend to be a bit brighter. And this is a mon avis (in my opinion). May i also add that they make the best concealers ever. I have tried other concealers but i find myself going back to MAC. I like the NW45 both the fluid coverup and cream one. For a more affordable one i will use the LA girl pro which i got from Beauty Bay.

You can get professional natural looking shots both for portofolios and personal keep in addition to artistic shots.

I hope this has been helpful.

Until next time, its bye from me.
