Hello and welcome to my blog. This blogpost is partly showing my gratitude towards God for His loving kindness and the strength He gives me to carry on in this life. It is not easy but in Him i have peace.

The other part is my regular beauty post. I kbow i have not posted much lately about the stuff i am experimenting with in the makeup department.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I just like playing with colours. I am very new to all this type of makeup and trying my best to do a good job on myself all the times.

PhotoGrid_1516596079058

These are the product i used for my eye lids.

The eye shadow i used is the MUA eye shadow in Chestnut as base, midnight blue and MAC black eye shadow. I used the MUA eye shadow in champaigne in the tear dot. For mascara i am using L’Oreals volume million lashes.

For the look below i was not sure whether to go for red or a different colour lippy and in the end i went for the Barrym lip liquid in Signature. The signature colour is similar to Revlons pink pout which i love.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time its bye from me.

The BarryM Match maker

BarryM, Beauty, Makeup, Superdrug, Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a beauty post about the BarryM matchmaker lip liquid in signature and nail paint in extravagant. I got the below for free when i bought a couple of lip pencils from Superdrug. I didnt want to line my lip so the real colour can be seen however after taking a couple of pictures i lined my lip with BarryMs lip liner in plum (my favourite).

IMG_20180121_164421_063

The lip liquid dries matte and dries quick as well. It looks like although they come in the same pack they are both different coloura. The nail paint looks like dark red and the lip liquid looks metalic kinda pink.

Please note that i have demist the above picture on my huawei P8 so the lip paint looks very pink however in real life it looks like the picture below.

PhotoGrid_1516560370405

I love the nail paint. The colour is what i will go for any day. It looks dark red but i think its burgandy with sparkles. When it comes to Barry M i love their lip pencils and nail paints. I tried them about 4 years ago and now im hooked.

The above picture has no filter on it and thus display the real colour of the lip liquid.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time it bye for now.

BarryM Makemaker: Lip and Nail kit

Hello everyone,  I hope you have had a good start of 2018. I am back with yet another beauty review. And its the one and only BarryM match maker lip and nail kit. I got this for free when i purchased 3 lip pencils worth £2.99 each from superdrug. The kit was free when you spent £8.00 or more on selected BarryM costmetics.

IMAG0601

The nail polish colour is #Extravagant. its really pigmented and a little goes a long way.

Before i go any further i would like to take this opportunity to express how much i love BarryM lip pencils. The colour plum no# 11 is my go to lip liner pencil for all my lipsticks and glosses.

PhotoGrid_1515201430341

Picture on the left when i first applied the BarryM matte me up with lip liner BarryM in plum. Picture on the right is early hours of new years day.

I have the pencils in red, chocolate and plum and used to have burgandy. The plan was to wear the lip gloss and nail polish on new years eve to church but i could only wear the lip gloss as i was in a rush.

IMAG0613

I do not wear artificial nails. I prefer to grow and nurture my own. I have had to shorten them so they dont break as others have.

A couple of years back when i played with bright colours, i bought their nail vanish in bright colours. Then i switch to black for a while. I absolutely love this colour: looks red with sparkles. #Sold. I love red. I have a blog on bright colours coming soon. I already have a BarryM clear sparle nail polish which i want to wear with a black layer underneath.

I was in a rush on the day so i will upload better pictures of the lip liquid again next time. I am not sure how much it cost by itself.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time its bye from me.

Foundation: Fenty Beauty Foundation 460

Beauty, Uncategorized

As promised this is the review of the all famous fenty beauty by Rihanna which was recently released. I queued up outside Harvey Nichols to purchase the foundation and primer totalling £50.00. They each cost £25.00. We were given refreshment and samples when we were waiting so it made the whole experience nice. The security guard had Trophy wife on which i thought was cute 😄.

Fenty Beauty Foundation in 460 and primer

I was actually shaded 430 at the door whilst we were waiting to get inside of Harvey Nichols. But when we arrived at the counter and were being matched with what had been prescribed for us, it was too light so we worked our way through some of the dark shade and arrived at 460. Lets get into it.

Swatch me: Fenty beauty application

The foundation

I believe 460 is my shade and it has a redish undertone to it although in the pictures  it shows a golden undertone. It also has a matte finish and dries quick so you have to be quick with application. I did not get the concealer as i already had a MAC NW45. The foundation exodises over time but i like the look it gives me.

The primer

The primer is creamy but if you have oily skin it will not hold the foundation longer than 6 to 8 hours depending on the climate and what you are doing on the day. You may need to blot it here and there after that many hours. One does not need to have makeup on for so long!

PhotoGrid_1514606126240

Fenty Beauty 460

I have worn the foundation on three ocassions to an interview as i wanted a more natural look. I also wore it on my first day of work because i thought i will have my ID done but turns out pictures were not required on our ID cards. Go figure! I have been wearing it to church so far.

PhotoGrid_1514608104061

With filter (demist) on Huawei P8. This indicates that it will be good for photo shoot as well. Natural and Over the top.

Finally there are a lot of reviews of this on youtube which is equally helpful. I do like the foundation and would recommend it for those looking for a matte finish look.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Until next time is happy new year
