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.

Hello everyone,

So Chi happens to be a friend of mine who i featured on this blog a looong time ago. She had her makeup done by me for a wedding. She's also undergoing personal makeup training at 'Blushes 'n Dimples Makeup school'.

So i did this look on her face few days ago, and i had totally forgotten to post it on my blog. Here it is......

No lashes, just mascara on her upper and lower lashes

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:
