Hello and welcome

Hello and welcome to my blog. As you can see from the title, this is all about the WORD, fashion and beauty. I am going through a bit of shuffling in my mind and may make a few changes; I will leave that for another blogpost.

The word

We are still exploring the book of Titus. God wants the church of today to show forth the love of Christ on the way we relate to each other. We were also reminded that Love has no place for slander. Paul ask the older women to share their wisdom and encourage the young women.

So if you are older in a church be sure to encourage and correct where necessary. It’s a lonely world out there any piece of encourage can go a long way.

Look and outfit

I wore an african print aka Ankara dres.  This dress was made in Ghana and was bought already made. At first sight I didn’t think I would like it, but I have managed pull a two styles out of it one with belt and the other with out.

The dress is a maternity dress top belted it with a skinny belt from some other H&M corporate skirt or dress. And oh the shoes are from NewLook.

I used my M. A. C studio fix foundation in NW55 and their conceal or cover up in NW45. For eye shadow I used MUA eye shadow in midnight blue and one of MAC dazzle eye shadow in get phisical and BarryMs meteor storm in the corner of my eyes.

For my lips I used BarryMs lip pencil in plum and Revlon’s lipstick in Mink. I basically just mixed the two.

I should really start doing makeup videos not tutorials but just a how I got my look video on you tube.

Until next time, it’s bye from me.

This picture was taken at the wrong time but looks very posey lol

I was going for blue and red. The eye shadow is max factor 45 Sapphire rage and the outer corner i used MUA midnight blue. It is not that visible, i know but it looks very dark blue like navy blue but darker. In my tear duct, i used Bare minerales morning glow.

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.

bty

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.

I got M.A.C -ed: M.A.C unboxing

Beauty, Makeup, Uncategorized

IMAG0479.jpg

It looks like i have another review coming up. I love M.A.C foundations so i was adamant about finding my shade with them again. I recently purchased these items from them on HOF.com. Their cream foundation helped me in my late teens in covering up my hyperpigmentation so we kind of had something good going on. You can call it my first love. 😍

I initially had the NW50 but over time i felt my complexion had changed so it was no longer matching my complexion. The cream foundation i usually wore was constantly out of stock so out of frustration i stopped searching.

I turned into a mixtress and started mixing NW50 and NW58 which is basically espresso-like shade, their darkest.  This was during the past 2 to 3 years until i got my hands on l’oreal true matches: deep golden and deep cool. I think NW55 is inbetween NW50 and NW58 so i am in good hands. I will review this with pictures once i try them on this weekend.

£22.50

MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation
