Lagos Diaries: Pink and Gold Aso Ebi

Hi guys, In my previous post, I mentioned that I visited my home country, Nigeria earlier this month. Though my trip was unplanned and short, I managed to squeeze in a lot of fun.

The reason I was home was to attend an "owambe" (traditional Nigerian Function ). The colors of the event were blush and gold, and I knew I wanted a very glamorous traditional outfit. I bought the pink underlay fabric and skirt fabric in the States, but the shimmery lace fabric was bought at good old Balogun Market. Because I arrived in Lagos a few days before the event, my tailor had a very short time to complete the dress. The end result was not the exact style I had requested, but the outfit came out gorgeous and I was satisfied with the outcome. 

What do you guys think? The tailor came correct, right?

Face: Loreal Infallible Matte Foundation in Dark Cocoal | Powder: Iman pressed powder in Medium deep | blush: Inglot Red #382 |Highlight: LA Girl cosmetics in warm honey & Ben Nye Banna Powder
Eyes: Inner corner-Mac loose pigment in copper sparkle & Pink pink pearl | Middle color--MAC loose pigment in magenta madness and MAC cranberry | Outer V: cexpresso for Too faced Natural eye paletter |Crease: Inglot Red #382

Lips: Lip Liner: Barry M in #11 & Coloured Raine in Berri Raine

That's all folks. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web :-)
