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).
Eyes: Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade in ‘ebony’, Morphe brushes 35U multicolor shimmer palette, LA girl pro concealer in ‘fawn’, Sigma beauty gel liner in ‘wicked’, angel lashes.
Face: Estee Lauder double wear foundation in ‘sandalwood’, Estee lauder double matte powder in ‘deep’, sleek makeup contour kit in ‘dark’, bhcosmetics blush.
Lips: Dose of colors matte lipsticks in ‘kiss of fire’ and ‘pinky promise’ (first look), LA girl lipliner in ‘cocoa’ and Dose of colors matte lipstick in ‘truffle’ (second look).
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.
