PURPLE PASSION


Hi Guys, I took a few days off work to "get my life" and during that time i was able to sneak in a makeup look! I wanted to play with different shades of purple this time around. I don't have a favourite color but if i was to choose a top 5 purple will definitely make the cut.

For this look i grabbed my "oh so faithful" BH smokey palette.Now that palette is a life saver and great for the price too. Don't sleep on it. I plan on using this for a lot more looks.There are just so many colors to mix and match.

 I used a shimmery lilac color with flecks of gold on the lid and a dark plumy purple on the outer V. In my crease i used a matte purple color after i warmed it up withmy transition color(swiss chocolate).

Hope you like the look!! Let me know what you think below.

BEAUTY AFRICA CONFERENCE DAY 1!!

Hi guys!!

The Beauty Africa Conference has come and gone and i am very proud that i was one of the official bloggers for such awesome event. Eeeeeeek i was so proud when i saw my blog name on the banner. How cute!

I know this blog post is a week late but i haven't had time to post it. I know the pics are all over the internet.. It looked fab right! I was able to attend DAY 1 and i caught the last few hours on day 3 because i was at work. The day before the main event we where invited to a cocktail at Eko Hotel which i attended(thanks to the public holiday) and that was a lot of fun. 

Day 1 of the  event was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with my bloggie friends and i learn't so much. It was lovely watching the makeup experts do their demonstrations and i especially loved that of Fatima Mamza of Mamza Beauty. She so soft spoken and all round gorgeous. I also learnt how to air brush from Khuraira Musa who i must say is extremely beautiful and has a very bubbly personality.

I wasn't able to take a lot of pictures because i was using my Ipad and i'm guessing we all know how much i dislike taking pictures with anything but my professional camera. Oh on that i got it back so yaaaaaay!!! I have a ton of makeup looks and reviews for you all.

REVIEW: SACHA KAMAFLAGUE COVER CREAM

Hi guys,

Today i will be reviewing this Sacha kamaflague palette i got a while back. Recently i decided i wanted to start doing makeup professionally. I dont like to beat my own face aloneyou know. LOL.

I was searching online for foundation palettes and i came across this one. Well actually the first time i heard about this palette was during the makeup masterclass i attended  with Jackie Aina. I decided to purchase this because she raved about the brand SACHA and i was interested in trying out their products.

What SACHA COSMETICS says: A 10- piece light weight palette that comes in light-to-medium and medium-to-deep sets. SACHA's Kamaflage Cover Cream foundations are silicone based and used to camouflage skin imperfections such as hyper pigmentation, vitiligo, tattoos and many more. This light-weight formula is water resistant and smudge proof once set with SACHA's Setting Powder and Fix It Spray. It provides maximum coverage and recommended for all skin types.


DAZZLEBEAUTIE: First of all, when it comes to foundations, i'm not very forgiving. Foundation is the most important component of any makeup look for me. When your foundation is right/wrong it can either make/mar your look. Now, the colors in this palette are very dodgy. You will have to do a lot of mixing to get the correct shade. I tried using this foundation on myself and it was a problem getting my shade. I have also tried the last three shades on people and it was a little off. I have a problem wiht trying to make foundations work. I feel if it is not your shade or doesn't suit your undertone it will leave a cast and that is UGLY.

Now the consistency of this is quite creamy and you don't need a lot. Over do this and it will look super cakey. I have used the shade P.Caramel as a highlight and it did come out quite nice. I set with my a HD setting powder so it didn't budge.

Overall, i don't know how i feel about this product in general. I'l probably stick to using it as a highlight color. I generally prefer liquid foundations.

WOULD I RECOMMEND: Kinda! If you have the patience to mix and match and you like full coverage makeup. Its an okay palette to have in your kit to conceal spots and for highlighting.
