Flawless Foundation Routine With NO Primer – Here’s Exactly What I Did

From time to time I love to try out something new and all the time when it works, I share my findings with you. You are very welcome :). As you know already, I do not wear foundation daily so as for my skin to have the chance to breath and also for me not to clog up my pores which can lead to skin dullness and breakouts. However, on days when I do not wear foundations, I wear some primer and then follow with my translucent powder or just my setting powder and then set it with my Mac’s fix plus and off I go for the day. So, I ran out of my foundation primer, the oil-free Lancome La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer Smoothing Effect on a day when I needed to wear foundation so I decided to try out something new and it worked. Let’s checked it out.

You Are Not What You’ve Been Through (Motivation for Monday)

When we go through challenges in life, a lot of us tend not to see ourselves beyond where we are. We blame ourselves, we belittle ourselves and a lot of times, a lot of us just stay down with no plan of getting up again from our setbacks. Staying down is easy because just anyone can stay down. However, it takes boldness, courage, determination and self-motivation to rise again after a set back. We have to understand that, the only way we can rise again after a setback is that we must do whatever it takes to rise again. Today on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you to see yourself beyond where you are now and what you may have gone through.

2 WAYS TO STYLE A COLOUR-BLOCK TUNIC

 

Jeans is a down time wear for most people but for me, tunics and dresses are my go to down time wear. They are easy to throw on and go.

A Taste of Africa With Made to Measure African Designs

For the sake of lovers of African fabrics and styles, today, I bring you some African fabrics and designs I made when I Visited Lagos, Nigeria. This is a try on haul where I shared the fancy modern designs you could create by using fabrics like Ankara and Lace. In Nigeria or in Africa in general, the concept is called “cut and sow”, whereby you buy the fabrics and hand them over to a Designer or Tailor or Dress Maker to make for you. It is known around the world as “made-to measure”. When you hand over your fabrics to the Tailor to make for you, you can either choose your style from a magazine or catalogue or you sketch or create them by yourself. In my own case, I always choose the later and work closely with my Tailor.

 

It is amazing how things change and how the world can embrace the “impossible”. Once upon a time, the fashion movers and shakers consider fabrics like Ankara too loud, too bold, too colourful and too in your face. But now, the too loud, too bold, too colourful and too in your face African fabrics is / are now “taking over” the fashion scene with people like the Editor in Chief of Vogue – Anna Wintour, Rihanna and Beyonce to mention a few have been spotted wearing Ankara….

 

MUSTARD – AN ALTERNATIVE TO YELLOW & 5 WAYS TO STYLE MUSTARD

 

Mustard is not quiet yellow, it is however a shade of yellow that is dull or dark. It resembles culinary mustard. So, mustard is the colour of the sauce you get on your favourite street or kiosk hot dog.

Mustard is the perfect alternative to yellow for people who don’t like to wear yellow because it is too bright. Because mustard is a darker shade of yellow, it suits all skin tone. In fact, I can say that you do not need to wear tan before you wear mustard.
