A print headwrap, dark lips, & smokey teal eyes

Hey guys, have you noticed that my makeup posts are frequent these days? At the beginning of the year, I decided I wanted to get better with makeup application, and I challenged my self to create a look every Saturday using a different technique. This look is from two Saturdays ago, and my challenge here was to use a different combination of shadows for my outer V and crease, instead of  the typical brown shade I use.

 To achieve a different than usual crease and outer V color, I used an orange and red shade in my crease, and a mixture of purple and black for the outer V. Thought not visible, the orange and red contributed to making the outer V of my lid look plumy. 

I really loved this look, and I thought a print scarf and jumbo size earring from my online store, Chic Therapy Accessories would complete the look. All products used are listed below. 

Face: Foundation: Nars Luminous foundation in Benares| Powder- MAC Mineralize skin finish in deep dark | Highlight: LAGirl Cosmetics concealer in warm honey and Ben Nye banana powder |  Blush- red matte shadow #382 | Honey pot shade from Too Faced Cosmetics natural eye palette

Eyeshadow: Inner corner-Cobalt blue shade from House  of Tara Oseken palette| Outer corner- Black & purple shade from BH Cosmetics Eyes on the 70s palette | Transition color: Inglot--red matte shadow #382 & orange in amc 51 | Brow Bone- Honey pot shade from Too Faced Cosmetics natural eye palette 
Lips: Coloured Raine-Roulette & Mary
That's all folks. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this look. 

Have a fabulous weekend.


  1. You need a Youtube beauty channel!

  2. You look really beautiful, this is one of your best looks. I love how your scarf pulls the entire look together.

    PS. You are definitely in the hair growth challenge!

  3. Your eye makeup is the bomb girl! Love the headwrap as well.

  4. Nice post!

  5. Hello dear! I like what you did. From the eyeshadows to your lips. I don't know tho if I can rock it too with colours, I need to get better at that too.
    Have a nice week

  6. I agree with the first comment about the You tube channel. You look lovely in these pics. I think the only thing I could pull off is the lipstick. Thanks for the detailed description of the products used.

  7. Hi,

    I hope your weekend went well.

    I like how you explained the sections of the eyelid in the third photo. Well-detailed for people like me who haven't got the foggiest about these things.

    My eye make up routine involves lining my upper and lower lids. My lid crease is so tiny that colour barely shows when my eyes are open, so I don't bother. Lol

    Your eyes look great.

  8. Yassss!! Im here for it babe- the makeup th hair the turban!!

  9. Very nice look. Your makeup is killer!

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
