I am Sunshine

Happy New month! I’ve always loved October, the first day of the month is Nigeria’s independence anniversary, so as a child, it usually meant no school, and lots of fun activities. It’s also my mother’s birth month, while she’s never one to be extravagant about celebrating, I just love this month even more because of her.

I did this shoot for my feature on Shawn Osimbo’s blog. She and I clicked from the first day I met her. What I love most about Shawn is her lack of superficiality. She’s as real as it gets.

When we were talking about this feature, I decided I was going to go with a bold look, mostly because I sense that a lot of women fear colour when it comes to Makeup. It’s not uncommon to find a woman with blond coloured mohawk, who wants ‘natural makeup’. I know! It’s such a contradiction. What women don’t know is that as long as makeup is well blended, it will look good.

Let’s dive IN.

For my 2nd look I simply switched lip colour (accessories and outfit).

I wear this yellow eyeshadow colour so much these days, it’s beginning to lose it’s wow effect on those around me, but I honestly can’t help myself, it’s just such a happy colour. I am Sunshine after all. I should emit fun bright colours. Tihihi.
