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.

This me shamelessly posing and showing off my inner Next Top Model fun pose

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.

What I wore last sunday

Hello and welcome. I am coming to you again with what I wore last sunday. But first the word.

The word

The opening statement was “whosoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be save” God promised His elect “those who have come to faith in Christ” that they will have eternal life. Some kind of deliverance was promised. Deliverance from death.

God did this through His son Jesus. God determined that the elect will be saved through the work of His son Jesus Christ. By elect I mean whosoever which applies to I, you, her, him, them and they.

The look

I wore a combination of green and black and tried to have the same with my makeup. The eye shadow I used are MAC  cosmetic, MUA and L’Oréal treuematch foundation in dark coffee. I concealed with Mac and L A pro, on my lips is revlon pink pout together with BarryM lip liner in plum. I delive I have covered everything.

 

The ensemble 

I wore a skirt and open shoe I got from asos some years back, black blouse from primark. I’m not too big on jewelry but on Sunday I wore a piece of necklace I got from Marks & Spencers.

That’s all for today. Until next time have a bled week!

All dressed and ready for church

Hello and welcome to my blog. As always without fail I am coming to you all with all dressed up an ready for church.

The word

The word went something like this: Faith is the heart beat of Christianity. Without faith we cannot live the Christian life and without it we cannot please God.

The woman with the issue of blood had a Determined, directed and actioned faith. Mark 5:25

Her faith was challenged by circumstances and by her illness. Her faith gave her sense of hopefulness. Hope and faith and closely linked. The woman with the issue of blood had frequent disappointments but was still hopeful. In conclusion without faith its impossible to please God. 

The look

I wore a long body con turtle neck dress I bought from asos a year ago I believe and as always this did not fit well then and an asos open toe heels.

Makeup

I am still exploring with BarryM Meteor Storm pallette. I used the palette to create this look. I used to have those 88 shade eye shadow palette from Ebay but for some reason I cannot find it so I glad i had the palette. The lip colour is elf Ruby red lipstick, I am convinced there’s sugar in this lips stick because it taste sweet.

That’s it for this post. Until next time it’s bye from me.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s post is about last Sundays look which is well late, as always, but it’s better late than never. Last Sunday’s sermon was about God’s providence and the question Job raised was shall we receive good at the hand of God and shall we not receive  evil? This is a question you should ponder upon.

The look

Since it’s summer I am playing with colours with my clothes and my makeup pallette. I wore this look for my 29th birthday and thought let’s recycle. The skirt is from Asos and the stop and shoes are from top shop.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For the makeup I used MUA cosmetics bright vibrant colours and their single midnight blue pallette.

For my lips I used L’Oréal infallible lip gloss in the bigger the better and lined my lips with BarryM lip pencil in plum. I also keep reaching for my L’Oréal True Match in dark coffee.

That’s it for today until next time it bye. Let me know if you are trying bright and bold colours this summer or nude and neutral colours.

Huawei P20 non tech first impression

BarryM, Beauty, Makeup, Natural Hair, Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to my blog. So I recently came across the new Huawei mobile phone and having previously had the P8 I was excited about this new release. I got this phone on Tuesday as part of an upgrade from my previous plan with EE.

IMG_20180424_211927

I am glad they still have the filters from the previous P8 on this too.

I have done one test with the phone which is editing a picture I took on my Sony 5100 another investment I made this month. The results was really good and I feel I am going have a lot of fun with both of them. The photo editing capability is really good so I am happy about that.

Shine bright like the diamonds✨

So I am looking forward to artistic pictures of objects and my face of course 🤭. I feel like I should have gone for the pro but one always has to stay within their budget. So far I like it but I have only had it for less than 48 hours so let’s wait and see.

IMG_20180424_203205

I also like how healthy I look in this picture as in full not too skinny on the face obvious it is because I am smiling 😊

I will report back with pictures taken and edited on the device.

P.s This is an upgrade, I didn’t purchase this phone out right although I did consider that.

Until next time, happy selfing.

I Feelunique: unboxing

Beauty, Makeup, MakeupHaul

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today post is about Feelunique an online beauty shop like beautybay  I first came across this site on TV when i was in my early 20s. It has grown significantly.

IMAG1174

In january i made a few purchases totally almost £70. I bought the LOreal true match in 10N Cocoa, 11N Dark coffee and the toffee shade for a friend. These were more than 50% off at that time. Superdrug and Boots are doing 3 for 2 on Loreal products. I also bought two of the Revlon colorstay combination/oily in Mocha.

IMAG1188

Unboxing my feelunique. The packaging was good and secure.

Shipment was pretty quick but obviously it’s in the UK i believe. The offer that was on at that time was up to 70% off. The products are genuine and affordable as well during sales or offers. For example i bought two of the Revlon colorstay as it was half price and had salcylic acid in it.

IMAG1186

My feelunique

I am happy with my purchases and would visit the site every now and then and keep an eye out for to take advantage of offer. I also got some sample product of aveda hair and Paco Rabone 2ml perfum.

Until next time, shop wisely.

Light In The Box: should you shop from there?

Beauty, Uncategorized
imag1346.jpg

I bought these items in addition to a tripod which is not in this picture.

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am sure you have come across LightInTheBox it is a website which sells a lot of beauty and fashion products. If i am not mistaken it is Chinese owned. I have purched items from there on two occasions.

IMAG1350

I bought some foundation sponges which i have bot used yet, contour kit, nail kit, eye lashes and blush kit. i also got an tripod which is not in this picture. It is not that strong.

I purchased the items at end of November and did not recieve them until second week of January 🤔. I understand there was snow in the UK  and transport may have been disrupted. But yes it took too long to reach me. This was my second purchased as my cousin destroyed the contour kit i bought from them. And because i really like the contour kit i bought the same one again from them.

IMAG1350

Beauty on a bugdet

The length of time for the item to reach you is dependent on whuch shipping you choose. I was not willing to pay the same amount as my shopping for shipping. If you do not mind waiting go ahead and make your purchases, your order will surely get to you.

The tripod is not that strong so i have to buy another one from Amazon.

Thats it for today.

Until next time, it bye from me

My 2017 favourites looked something like this

BarryM, Beauty, IMAN Costmetics, Makeup, Natural Hair, Superdrug, TeamNatural, Uncategorized

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.

PhotoGrid_1517691220598

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.

PhotoGrid_1517312405751

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
