B 'n D Makeover | Ft. Aisha

Hullo ladies!
I just want to share a quick look with you all. I did this ‘orangey’ look on a beautiful model named Aisha. Let me start by saying that Aisha has amazing facial features! She's actually one of my student’s model, and i really enjoy working on her face because she has the perfect eyes, the right lips, great cheek-bones….and did i mention that her eye-lashes are really long? They are!


Presenting to you...Mara Cruiz Centre

Mara Cruiz Centre is a skill acquisition training centre established to train youths and adults to develop their innate skills and become certified professionals in their chosen fields.


As the rate of unemployment skyrockets and huge skills gap exists, there is a dire need for people to acquire skills, be self reliant and also employ labour. 

There is also an inborn desire in people to develop their talents and skills in order to be self fulfilled and to have that satisfying sense of accomplishment.

Stay chic in the rain

No one likes being caught in the rain, but thankfully there are great looking fashion items that can help get you through the day! Some of our favorite items for a rainy day are: jelly shoes, jackets, scarves, and of course, an umbrella.

It can definitely be tough to dress for a rainy day because there are so many things to consider. From what type of fabric you can wear (suede shoes are a no-go) to how to stay dry without sacrificing style.

Thankfully here are some outfit ideas and tips put together by KAYMU to brighten up your rainy day.

PRODUCT REVIEW | Sleek Signature face-kit in 'Dawn'

Ok, lemme confess.
I set out doing a smokey look which i had the urge to pair with red lips, and i wanted to use my Sleek Signature face-kit in ‘Dawn’ to create the look because i hadn’t used it ever since i received the products from Sleek Nigeria. So when i got the face-kit out of my box, i realized that i hadn’t even reviewed it yet……. Aaaaand that was exactly how this post turned into a review!

 I duuno why, but whenever i buy a new product, i almost don’t want to use it because it’s always sooo spanking new, soooo neat and soooo clean that i don’t want to ruin its perfection…. Loolz! That was the case with this face-kit. I can't count how many times in the past that i have flipped it open and snapped it shut without touching anything inside it.

PICTORIAL | 'All things bright 'n colorful'

Good evening

Here’s the pictorial for ‘All things bright ‘n colorful’. You can re-create with these colors exactly, you can also recreate with other colors….depending on the colors and shades you have. I just want to show you how i got the look, but i must warn you, there’s a lot of blending involved. If you don’t blend thoroughly, the colors will just sit separately like water and oil ( you gerrrit?)

So i used 3 different colors for this look…Pink, blue and green (the green was sooo gorgeous by the way), and there wasn’t any eye contouring done at all. Here are the pictures……. Step-by-step:
