UPDATED: 6 LIPSTICKS FOR DARK SKIN

IMG_6905-1Hello Ladies!

I’ve done a similar post to this in the past, but here’s an updated version. These are 6 tested and trusted lipsticks for darker skinned ladies. A lot of women of colour still complain about “shades/colours not suiting them” but I beg to differ. I love lipsticks, I wear them everyday I wear makeup (Yes I do). I don’t like lip gloss and I just wouldn’t wear it alone, i.e without a lipstick/Lipstain base.  These Lipsticks are colours I wear myself, so fear not lol.

1. Sleek Papaya punch: This lipstick is coral-orange, it’s really rich and I love the way it applies smoothly. It also serves as a good gradient when applied in the middle of a purple lipstick.

2. MAC Ruby Woo: Any makeup lover knows the wonders of a red lipstick. It’s a deep yet vibrant red, although a little drying but it’s nothing lip balm can’t solve. Apply prior to application.

3. Sleek Mystic : I love purple lipstick and after MAC heroine, this comes next. It’s not a dupe for heroine but it serves as a good purple lipstick. Velvety and smooth too.

4. MAC Fixed on drama: Amazing colour! it’s like cocoa, pink and burgundy had a baby. Very pigmented and looks great on both dark and fair skin.

5. MAC Flat out fabulous: My favorite lipstick in the world. End of discussion

6. Kate Rimmel nude : This lipstick leans more to brown than a pink nude. I like it on days when I’m wearing a natural look. A little lip-liner and gloss over it and you’re good to go.

Hope this helps you when next you’re in the makeup aisle, but remember!  no matter how great a product is, application is what matters.

All lipsticks mentioned in this post are my personal favourites, Do let me know yours! I’d  really love to know … I love to mix colours to create a gradient, ombre or even a new colour.

Help to improve the blog, Pls complete this 10seconds poll! Thank you.

SPOKEN WORD: 206 BONES BY WONU ALESE

Hello,

Here’s an amazing piece by my talented friend Wonu Alese, who is a rising radio personality here in the U.K. This is a beautiful piece about Love, humanity and purpose. Listen and be blessed. Transcript below….

“We different, colour, hair, height, structure, sense of style, perception about life , religion, social stratas, able, disabled, straight, gay,  taste buds, but We all got one thing in common 206 BONES.
It is funny and weird how we all differ but we are all the same in the end. We all turn to dust and decay at some point. Continue reading

LALALE TUESDAY!

IMG_3946Hello all,

So it seems almost everyone was born in October with all the birthday celebrations going on around me. Last night was my friend Roseline’s birthday, I think i’ve mentioned her in one or two posts on the blog. Last night was lovely, we went to a hotel restaurant to have dinner then headed out to a bar after. I also met new people which is always nice, and got to meet more Africans in my age group, I wonder where they’ve been hiding through out the year lol. Food was good, music was good , and for a tuesday night the turnup was great . Everyone had a blast. I wore a Jumpsuit which I would put up details in the next post.  Below are pictures from the event! do enjoy.

Sure your week has kicked off great! It’s getting pretty cold here and days like this when the weather isn’t too bad, I ditch the coat. As for the post’ title ‘Morticia‘,  If you watched Addams family growing up you’d understand ^.^.

I’m wearing a crop top and Midi skirt.IMG_5347DSC_0313IMG_4992IMG_6593DSC_0307

WEEKEND SHENANIGANS + GET MY LOOK

IMG_9660Hi guys!

How did you enjoy your weekend? Sure it was great! I had quite a boring weekend besides my friend’s birthday party last night which was rather fun and made up for the boring weekend, You’d think I was the celebrant with my excitement lol  It’s been a while I heard Nigerian music with Nigerians..the vibe is completely different! The celebrant is my friend Leke and he turned 30 although he still looks 16. 

The whole night was a blast. I wore this blue dress which I styled casually with mules and minimal jewelery. I got it from Boohoo(Gotta love that store!) Very very affordable as its on sale now (Although if you have a big midsection this is NOT the dress for you as I couldn’t eat much(unto sucking belle). Here is a collage of the outfit as usual(with links on where to purchase below), and some of the house party pictures….Do enjoy!IMG_8349

MULES BAG  DRESS FLAT OUT FABULOUS M.A.C LIPSTICK (Acessories are easily substituted)
