You can read up a little about their backstory here. I recently did a St Patrick’s Day inspired tutorial for instagram. View this … More Zaron Cosmetics
The day of this shoot was the first time I ever met Sheila Kanini. She’s a model, and the first runner-up Miss World Kenya 2017. I noticed immediately that she’s a makeup Enthusiast, she let me go all out, no micro-management (MUAs in the house say Alleluia!). I didn’t plan on this becoming a blog post, … More Silver glitter x Neon pink Lips

It’s wedding season! Yay!. Since bridal makeup is what I do mostly, I tried to time these posts (it’s going to be in two parts) for the start of one of the two busiest wedding months (the other being December) in Kenya. Muslim weddings are usually an explosion of colour and style. The wedding attires, beautiful … More Bridal Makeup Inspiration. Pt. 1
OMG! This was the dream team right here! When I see what we were able to do in 2 hours, I’m just happy. I mean, this photoshoot almost didn’t happen because of a disastrous appointment I had right before. I was soooo mad, that I felt physically ill, But we’d been planning this shoot for … More Sunshine x Sheila Ndinda x Lyra Aoko
