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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

L.A Girl Pro Review: Rich Cocoa, fawn, dark cocoa

Beauty, Makeup, Natural Hair

First of all please note that i am not a makeup artist. When I started wearing makeup at age 20 or 21, I have gone from using maybeline, to revlon to now and still using l’oreal and MAC. I like the l’oreal true matches, although I have not found my true match yet both in foundation and man lol. Just kidding. I was mixing the espresso with cappucino to get to my match then I came across the deep cool and deep golden which worked but I want to try the cocoa which is a colour darker than the deep cool and deep golden. I will review this too once I get my hands on it.

Left foundation only | Right foundation and concealer

I recently bought some makeup product to try. Namely the L A Girl pro foundation in Rich Cocoa and the concealer in fawn and dark cocoa and the setting spray. I liked the foundation but looking at pictures it looks like my face is a bit white or bright but in real life it looks nice. I do not like putting foundation on my neck, I keep it just to the face so maybe if I do extend it to the neck it might give me a different look. I like the coverage and would say it gives me a medium to full coverage with a matte finish.

Lipstick: Revlon in pink pout. Lip liner: BarryM in the colour plum. Eye shadow: MUA Chamoisee and another dark brown colour

I will review Fenty beauty foundation in a later post.

The foundations I will be reviewing next are Fenty beauty in 460, loreal in cocoa, and Lancôme in café if I am able to get one in HOF (House of Fraser) store. I purchased 15 (moka) online only to go instore to collect for them to tell me they have run out, long story kept short. However instore it turns out i am colour 16 (café). Why lancôme? A friend recommended it some years back as a light weight so i will give a try and review.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Untill next time its bye from me
