Party like it's 1999!

The 90s- the greatest era ever! From music, to fashion, and even slangs, the 90s was totally rad! As a nod to this era, my friends and I decided to host a 90s themed party last summer. From crop tops to hot pants, lumber jack shirts to chokers, everyone was dressed to nines (pun intended!). 

One of the highlights of the party was a DIY photo booth wall that I set up. With the fun and colorful props, the photo wall had everyone posing and clicking away. Because my camera was stationary for most of the night, I was not able to catch a lot of the non-posed action. However, I caught some live video action at the beginning of the party. See below.  


I came through with the silver lipstick and fake beauty mole that plagued the late nineties
She said she was Carrie Bradshaw from 1998--lol

Aaliyah came through y'all!

Miss Kay came dressed as Patra, the Jamaican dancehall singer from the early to mid 90s
Chilling with Patra
Selfie time
Look, we even had Nigerian candy from way back

Live action!

That's all folks. Have a great weekend

Ombre Orange

Hey chicas, It's a make up post today--whoop! 

This one is for those lazy days. You want a glam look, but do not want to put in the work. This look was super easy, as I only used two shades of eye shadows. The colors were different shades of the same color, so blending was easy peasy (a win for lazy days!). For the entire eyelid, I used Inglot Matte Eyeshadow in Orange-AMC 51 and MAC Cosmetic pigment,
 copper sparkle in the inner corner. And My favorite vamp lipstick came through with that extra pow!

...and voila
Foundation: Maybelline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation | Powder: MAC Studio Fix Powder
Highlight: LA Girl Cosmetic Concealer in Medium beige + Ben Nye Banana Powder | Contour: Black Radiance Concealer Stick in Dark [8003]
Lipstick: Raven Claw by LA Splash Cosmetics
That's all folks. Have a great week.
