Throw Back Post to my Day with Clinique

Hi Loves! I hope you are having an amazing weekend. Sometime ago, I went to the Nail Studio Victoria Island to pick up some Clinique products, and I eneded up having the time of my life there. Clinique is a high end brand I liked to admire from a distance. It's no secret that their products can be a little bit pricey(I pray one day soon I am able to afford as much Clinique products without batting an eye). However, Clinique products are usually synonymous to quality. 

Kelechi, the makeup artist on duty had a field day checking out new products with me. 
I loved the Black High Impact Mascara (which you can see here)a whole lot! You can check out other Mascara's here 
We got to play around with some concealers, the Clinique Universal Face primer(which until that day I had never tried), and some these lip colours which I selected. I didn't have so much time on my hands that day, so we didn't go through some products. I will definitely be going back to that studio whenever I go back to Lagos.
If you are a girl of colour like me, check out this clinique website that caters to women like us if you live outside Lagos or in South Africa.

Tip: Instead of going to the market to buy fake overly pricey Clinique, you should visit the Nail studio and purchase your products from them. They sell authentic Clinique products at very affordable prices. Nuff said, and back to today's post.

I did my eyebrows myself :) Kelechi tried out my shade of concealer and powder.



 I liked the combination of the Clinique Pop™ Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer in Peace Pop shade with the Sugar/petal pop.


                                             The Masacara I told you guys about earlier.

            To be honest, I wasn't a fan of this second look using the peace pop, and the nude pop shade.


I love this Clinique Pop™ Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer in Sweetheart Pop shade A LOT!


I took pictures of some of the Clinique products they had.

           Summary of some of the products we had fun with.





         More pictures.





You should visit the Nail studio Victoria Island if you are around that axis and need to spoil yourself a little. Say hi to Kelechi for me, tell her Alexandra sent you.

My Sleek Makeup (Powder) Review

Hi! Here is the post I promised yesterday on my instagram. So, I recently unboxed my makeup I ordered from Sleek a while ago. I found some the powders I bought a huge disappointment because they were a shade or two too light for me. However, someone advised me to apply, and wait for an hour or two before leaving the house, and the makeup will blend in. Since, the powders are not too light for me. I became a bit discouraged and sad because I was really expectant on the products, and, they seemed like my complexion on screen but different in real life.





 The powder has a nice feel on my face and blends perfectly well with my foundation. I love it, and totally recommend!



This is what it looks like at the back. Excuse my nails. I confess that I don’t rely solely on the puff. I use the puff as a sort of applicator, and use my powder brush to complete my look.








Watch out for my first YouTube video this week! I can't wait for you guys to see it. Subscribe to my YouTube channel so you're not left behind when I upload.






Have you ever been disappointed after ordering makeup and the colour you ordered was not your exact skin tone? How did you deal with it?

I Did my Eye Brows for the First Time! Here's a Quick Everyday Eye Brow Tutorial (for Thick Brows)

Hi Everyone! I'm super excited to share this post with you because it means so much tome. Prior to September 27, 2016, I had NEVER tried doing my eyebrows. If you follow me on instagram you would have seen a preview of this post in the picture I posted the same day I carried out the experiment. 
Even after watching tons of YouTube videos, I had this thing at the back of my mind that, if I carved or trimmed my eye brows, I'd end up looking like a creature of the deep. I know, crazy yeah?! When I was a little girl, I used a razor to secretly(because my mother would beat the hell out of me), trim the edge of my eye brows which pretty much didn't grow back (do not try that at home if you are a child reading this, totally dangerous). 



Well, I woke up with a zeal to learn how to do this eyebrow thing not because I felt pressured to, but because, I jut felt I was ready to give makeup a  go at this point in my life.

Here are the results...

I started by brushing my eyebrow with a spoolie (a specialized eye brow brush very similar to a mascara wand). You can use your dried up mascara wand if you want to, this is what I used for this post(and I intend to continue until I get a good spoolie). 

Then, carefully use a razor to trim the excess hair outside the shape you intend for it.

In the picture below, I haven't done anything to my right eyebrow, can say it's in it's original form after I have partially trimmed it.

The next step is to draw a thin line with your eye pencil over and under the eye brow, giving them the shape you intend for them to take as seen in this picture(I used these fuchsia pink arrow pointers as a guide for you).


Then, the next step is to start filling in the eyebrow. This stage is quite tricky, you don't want to end up like a wildebeest(that was my main fear after trimming my brows). You might have figured, I love slightly thick eyebrows similar to my natural brows(I didn't trim off much of my brows), and those of Cara Delevegne.
My Discovery: The more you fill, and more pressure you apply to the eye pencil the thicker the outcome.

After filling, you need to brush your eyebrows again, and, put them in the shape you desire, if they have scattered. And, use a thin brush to line a lighter shade of foundation on the top and bottom of the eyebrow. The brush is seen in the first picture of this post, in this instance, I used one of my brow brushes from my Bobbi Brown set and can be purchased here. I used the Sleek Oil Free Creme to Powder two shades lighter than my skin tone for this.



The final look. 
Now, while this might not be the best brows you have ever seen, this is my first attempt, and I am very, much excited :)
What eyebrow tips do you suggest I should incorporate next time?

Before I forget, this is not a sponsored post or an advert. To collaborate with me in the future, check out my contact Page and shoot me an Email.



Your comments mean a lot to me, what do you think of the final look? 
Thank you visiting today, I hope you come back soon. And, please share this post so that others get to see it as well, once again, thank you.

Alexandra.

MY RELAXED HAIR REGIMEN/ROUTINE

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Sometimes, I just look up, smile, and say, "I know that was You God, thanks."-Unknown.

Hi Everyone! It's another beautiful day, I hope you are enjoying yours.
Today I decided to do a hair regimen/routine post here on the blog for you, because I get asked a lot of times what I do to maintain, and, grow my hair. Honestly, I give God all the credit for my hair texture, quality, and, length. I follow a lot of hair bloggers, and continuously do a lot of research.Have you read this post yet?

At least, once a month(usually on the last Sunday of the Month), I wash my hair with a drying shampoo aka shampoo with sulfate. It helps strips off residue of oil and hair care products I apply. This helps to enable my hair to breathe. I also do this if I feel my hair seems choked up after a full assessment. Think of it as makeup. All the hair care products you apply are like make, and at the end of the day, you clean it off it with a wipe/cleanser to enable your skin breathe.

After washing, I use a conditioner, and leave it for about 30 minutes, and wash it off.
I use an old Tee Shirt to dry out the dripping water from my hair and allow it to dry on its own, naturally. I do not use a hair dryer. I don't even own a tangible one.
Just before my hair dries out completely(but still damp/slightly humid), I apply an essential oil, like Extra Virgin Olive Oil(for my Naija readers, this is aka your anointing oil), or Coconut Oil, or any other oil you may have, like Eucalyptus oil, Argan oil, etc. Then, I allow it to just dry undisturbed. Once dry, I tie up my hair in a satin or silk scarf. By the way Ladies, which side you belong to, the scarf, or the bonnet? Tell me which one, and, why. The most convincing comment has a prize.

Usually, on Wednesday every week, I Co-Wash my hair. For beginners, this simply means washing your hair with a very good conditioner alone, as opposed to a shampoo. If you want me to do a post on how I co-wash my hair comment below.

Once in two weeks, try as much as possible to deep condition my hair, using organic products/produce I find around the house(I'm trying to make it once a week). This is very different from co-washing. I confess that I can be a bit if a scientist sometimes :) Once an idea pops up in my mind, I go straight to google and check out if anyone has done it before, the pros, and, cons of such a product or produce. Then, I head out to my lab, and get mixing. Feel free to ask me about any hair mixtures you've heard about, or are about trying. And, which ones work the best for you? You can also tell me on twitter by tweeting at me @LilyofNigeria 

Also, I moisturise, and seal in the moisture using an essential oil once in two-three days. Most times, I just stick to good ol' shea butter.

Every Sunday, I wash my hair with a non drying, a shampoo without sulfate, or paraben. Every six months, I trim out the tips of my hair. And, every now and then, if I make out time to search out for split ends by myself(it took me years to learn this skill), and trim them out. Please, go to a professional to trim out your split ends for you. DO NOT DO THIS yourself if you have not done this before, also avoid doing this if you do not have sufficient training for this.

The only time I have gone to the salon since April is to relax my hair. And I am very firm with my choices there. The relaxer cannot stay on my hair for more than a certain period. I texturize my hair. I don't allow them apply the relaxer to the tips of my hair, on the roots, and a good part of the strands. I go with my own kit. I don't allow them apply setting lotion to my hair, it turns it brown(Lord knows what they mix in that thing). I use my hair lotion instead of a setting lotion.

The cycle continues from the first step in the routine which is washing with a drying shampoo. You have to create time for your hair, show it love, and attention. And, most importantly, pray for your hair. I know someone who's hair wasn't doing well, at all. She anointed her hair, and talked to her Heavenly Father aka Jesus Christ about it, and, today I kid you not, her hair is shoulder length(it should be more by now, it's been over a year since I saw her).

Seek out a particular routine that will work out for you according to your schedule, and stick to it. You must not table it after mine.


These are some of the products I use:



This is the coconut oil I use. A family friend of mine and his wife makes it from 100% coconut. It's their family business, and has the backing of the government because of how authentic it is! The strong coconut scent hits you once you open it up. [They also make the softest, yummiest coconut bread. I don't even eat bread, my mommy brought this bread back one day and almost put my hatred for bread to shame! I had to gba break(stop) after the fourth piece, a taste will convince you. Shout out to Uncle Chukwuma and his wife! I'm so proud of you.
PS: We use some of the oil from the bigger bottle to make coconut rice.
 I didn't zoom in because you guys might think it's an advert. But it isn't. I will be posting a full picture on my Instagram page. So to see their full details, click here
 This is what the small bottle looks like. I've almost used up mine. It has lasted for about six months.



This Mamiya Organics product, is a two in one conditioner, and, shampoo. It allegedly has black castor oil, and avocado oil. I use to get out any residue from my hair. It leaves my hair silky, and smooth, as opposed to some knock off. It does not change the colour of my hair(I used one shampoo that turned my tips brown a long time ago, never again). I use this product once a month. It's actually my first bottle, and, so far it's great! It's really thick, and has a smooth white texture. If you want to see what it looks like, let me know, I'll show you what it looks like on Snapchat.
I will definitely be sticking to it, until I find something that can surpass it's quality.

 Remember that very expensive Indian Hemp hair cream made of glass, that only posh kids used in High school(boarding house). They are the same ones that make this product. I bought it for N1000 at Balogun Market. Tweet Me for details later. 
Mehn shout out to my High school guys from Beulah, Sammie & co. *InsertWeepingLaughingEmoji* (I'm almost rolling off my bed as I type this). Story time. I know you will kill me, but I love you all. Here's what happened, one night after lights out in the guys hostel, a particular group of boys were still awake, discussing how to grow their hair. And, someone suggested Indian hemp. Now if you went to a Christian school, and had sweet Ete as your Vice Principal, you will know that certain topics were off limits, especially after lights out. Now, what they didn't know was that Mr. Ete was by their window listening, and totally misunderstood them to mean that they wanted to try out Indian Hemp! LOL! Their punishment went down in history!
I will definitely buy this product again because, I enjoyed it. It means what is stated in the description. My hair is moisturised, and healthy. Also, I will be buying their conditioner, and shampoo since it's sulfate, and paraben free, to use as my weekly shampoo, and for co-washing respectively.  Yaay for Kuza.




Just before you finish reading, I joined Snapchat not too long ago, add me up @lilyofnigeria I do some tutorials, and, reviews there as well as, some of my day to day activities.
I have a good feeling I will see you sooner than later in my next post. Keep your eyes glued to this blog :)
Peace, and Love,
Alexandra.

French Translation:
 
CITATION DU JOUR: Parfois, je viens de regarder jusqu'à, sourire, et dire, - Unknown "Je sais que ce que Dieu vous, merci.".

Salut tout le monde! Il est une autre belle journée, je l'espère que vous appréciez le vôtre.
Aujourd'hui, je décidé de faire un régime de cheveux / post-routine ici sur le blog pour vous, parce que je me pose beaucoup de fois ce que je fais pour maintenir et, pousser mes cheveux. Honnêtement, je donne à Dieu tout le crédit pour ma texture des cheveux, de la qualité, et, longueur. Je suis un grand nombre de blogueurs de cheveux, et continuellement faire beaucoup de research.Have vous lisez ce post encore?

Pardon Me, cette photo a été prise dans la soirée, au coucher du soleil. Voilà pourquoi il est un peu sombre.


Au moins, une fois par mois (habituellement le dernier dimanche du mois), je me lave les cheveux avec un shampooing de séchage aka shampooing avec du sulfate. Il aide les bandes les résidus de pétrole et de produits de soins capillaires I sont applicables. Cela aide pour permettre à mes cheveux de respirer. Je fais aussi ce si je sens mes cheveux semble étouffé après une évaluation complète. Pensez-y comme le maquillage. Tous les produits de soins capillaires que vous appliquez sont comme make, et à la fin de la journée, vous nettoyez-le avec un nettoyant essuyez / pour permettre à votre peau respirer.

Après le lavage, j'utiliser un climatiseur, et le laisser pendant environ 30 minutes, et rincez.
J'utilise un vieux T-shirt à sécher l'eau coulait de mes cheveux et laisser sécher sur elle-même, naturellement. Je ne l'utilise un sèche-cheveux. Je ne suis même possède pas un tangible.
Juste avant mes cheveux se dessèche complètement (mais encore humide / légèrement humide), je demande une huile essentielle, comme Extra Virgin Olive Oil (pour mes lecteurs Naija, ceci est aka votre huile d'onction), ou l'huile de coco, ou de toute autre huile que vous peut avoir, comme l'huile d'eucalyptus, huile d'argan, etc. Ensuite, je lui permettre de tranquille juste sec. Une fois sec, je noue mes cheveux dans un satin ou soie foulard. Par la façon dont les femmes, de quel côté vous appartenez, le foulard ou le capot? Dites-moi que l'on, et pourquoi. Le commentaire le plus convaincant a un prix.

Habituellement, le mercredi chaque semaine, je co-laver mes cheveux. Pour les débutants, cela signifie tout simplement se laver les cheveux avec un très bon conditionneur seul, par opposition à un shampooing. Si vous voulez que je fasse un post sur la façon dont je co-laver mes cheveux commentaire ci-dessous.

Une fois en deux semaines, essayez autant que possible de conditionner profondément mes cheveux, en utilisant des produits biologiques / produis, je trouve autour de la maison (je suis en train de le faire une fois par semaine). Ceci est très différent de la co-lavage. Je vous avoue que je peux être un peu si un scientifique parfois :) Une fois qu'une idée surgit dans mon esprit, j'aller directement à Google et vérifier si quelqu'un l'a fait avant, les pros, et les inconvénients d'un tel produit ou de produire . Puis, je me dirige vers mon laboratoire, et d'obtenir le mélange. Ne hésitez pas à me poser des questions sur tous les mélanges de cheveux que vous avez entendu parler, ou êtes à essayer. Et, ceux qui fonctionnent le mieux pour vous? Vous pouvez aussi me dire sur twitter par tweeting me @LilyofNigeria

Aussi, je hydratent et scelle dans l'humidité en utilisant une huile essentielle une fois en deux-trois jours. La plupart du temps, je viens de coller à ce bon vieux beurre de karité.

Every dimanche, je me laver les cheveux avec un non séchage, un shampooing sans sulfate, ou paraben. Tous les six mois, je l'assiette sur les conseils de mes cheveux. Et, chaque maintenant et puis, si je fais des temps de chercher pour la fente se termine par moi-même (il m'a fallu des années pour apprendre cette compétence), et coupez-les. S'il vous plaît, rendez-vous à un professionnel pour couper votre fourchus pour vous. NE PAS faire vous-même si vous ne l'avez pas fait cela avant, aussi éviter de faire cela si vous ne disposez pas d'une formation suffisante pour cela.

La seule fois où je suis allé au salon depuis Avril est de se détendre mes cheveux. Et je suis très ferme avec mes choix là-bas. Le défrisage ne peut pas rester sur mes cheveux pendant plus d'une certaine période. Je texturer mes cheveux. Je ne permets pas les appliquer le défrisant aux conseils de mes cheveux, sur les racines, et une bonne partie des brins. Je vais avec mon propre kit. Je ne permets pas les appliquer la mise en lotion pour les cheveux, il transforme brun (Dieu sait ce qu'ils mélangent dans cette chose). J'utilise mes cheveux lotion au lieu d'une lotion de mise.

Le cycle se poursuit à partir de la première étape de la routine qui est le lavage avec un shampooing de séchage. Vous devez créer le temps pour vos cheveux, montrez l'amour et attention. Et, surtout, priez pour vos cheveux. Je connais quelqu'un qui est les cheveux ne faisait pas bien, pas du tout. Elle oint ses cheveux, et a parlé à son Père céleste alias Jésus-Christ à ce sujet, et, aujourd'hui, je ne plaisante pas, est ses cheveux longueur d'épaule (il devrait être plus maintenant, il a été plus d'un an depuis que je l'ai vu).

Cherchez une routine particulière qui va travailler pour vous en fonction de votre emploi du temps, et de s'y tenir. Vous ne devez pas déposer après le mien.

Ce sont quelques-uns des produits que j'utilise:
Ceci est l'huile de noix de coco que j'utilise. Un ami de la famille de la mine et de sa femme, il est de 100% de noix de coco. Il est leur entreprise familiale, et a le soutien du gouvernement à cause de la façon dont il est authentique! Le parfum de noix de coco forte vous frappe une fois que vous l'ouvrez. [Ils font aussi le plus doux, yummiest pain de noix de coco. Je ne mange même pas de pain, ma maman a apporté ce pain revenir un jour et presque mis ma haine pour le pain à la honte! Je devais pause gba (arrêt) après la quatrième pièce, un goût saura vous convaincre. Shout out à l'oncle Chukwuma et sa femme! Je suis si fier de toi.
PS: Nous utilisons de l'huile à partir de la plus grande bouteille pour faire du riz de noix de coco.

Je ne zoome parce que vous avez peut penser qu'il est une petite annonce. Mais il est pas. Je vais poster une image complète sur ma page Instagram. Donc, pour voir leurs détails, cliquez ici

Ceci est ce que la petite bouteille ressemble. Je l'ai utilisé presque la mienne. Il a duré environ six mois.

Ce produit Mamiya Organics, est un deux en un climatiseur, et, shampoing. Il a prétendument l'huile de ricin noir, et l'huile d'avocat. Je l'utilise pour sortir tout résidu de mes cheveux. Il laisse mes cheveux soyeux et lisse, par opposition à certains knock off. Il ne change pas la couleur de mes cheveux (j'ai utilisé un shampooing qui a transformé mes pointes brunes il y a longtemps, jamais). J'utilise ce produit une fois par mois. Il est en fait ma première bouteille, et, jusqu'à présent, il est super! Il est très épais, et a une texture lisse et blanc. Si vous voulez voir à quoi il ressemble, laissez-moi savoir, je vais vous montrer à quoi il ressemble sur Snapchat.
Je vais certainement être coller à elle, jusqu'à ce que je trouve quelque chose qui peut surpasser sa qualité.

Rappelez-vous que la crème de cheveux chanvre indien très coûteux en verre, que les enfants ne chics utilisés au lycée (pensionnat). Ils sont les mêmes que ceux qui font de ce produit. Je l'ai acheté pour N1000 à Balogun marché. Tweet Me pour plus de détails plus tard.

Mehn crier à mes gars du secondaire de Beulah, Sammie & co. * InsertWeepingLaughingEmoji * (je suis presque rouler sur mon lit que je tape ceci). L'heure du conte. Je sais que vous allez me tuer, mais je vous aime tous. Voici ce qui est arrivé, une nuit après l'extinction des feux dans le gars auberge, un groupe particulier de garçons étaient encore éveillés, discuter comment faire pousser leurs cheveux. Et, quelqu'un a suggéré le chanvre indien. Maintenant, si vous êtes allé à une école chrétienne, et avait sweet Ete comme vice-principal, vous saurez que certains sujets étaient hors limites, surtout après l'extinction des feux. Maintenant, ce qu'ils ne savaient pas que M. Ete était par leur écoute de la fenêtre, et totalement leur mal compris comme signifiant qu'ils voulaient essayer chanvre indien! LOL! Leur punition est entré dans l'histoire!

Je vais certainement acheter à nouveau ce produit parce que, je l'ai apprécié. Cela signifie ce qui est indiqué dans la description. Mes cheveux étaient hydratée, et en bonne santé. Aussi, je vais acheter leur climatiseur et Shamoo depuis sa sulfate et sans paraben, à utiliser comme mon shampooing hebdomadaire, et respectivement co-lavage. Yaay pour Kuza.

Juste avant que vous avez terminé la lecture, je me suis joint Snapchat pas trop longtemps, ajoutez-moi @lilyofnigeria je fais quelques tutoriels, et, avis là aussi bien que, certains de mes activités quotidiennes.

DIY Organic Avocado Hair Mask

Quote: "What if I fall...Oh my darling, what if You fly?"- Unknown.



Good morning Guys, Happy Sunday!!
I went for 7:30 am Mass at Falomo, and I have the rest of the day free! Yaay Me! Lately, I've had a lot of "alone time." It's a good thing to experience once in a while. I feel my court attachment externship is one of the best things God put in place to fire me up for my career. I am truly grateful.

However, I feel I am not reading enough for school. Tbh, it's as if I need to put in more effort. A new friend of mine told me I'd be just fine (hey Georgie). But, tearfully, I don't know how. In a good way, I know I need a little push.

Back to today's post! Generally, I love to eat/snack on Avocado! But, like most things with humans, my body outrightly rejects it! Sadly, people, Avocado gives Alexandria serious flatulence. Don't laugh at me or I won't share anything with you again. Kiddin'! *insertLaughingEmoji*
I'm even laughing at myself, who am I to stop you?

Lets talk hair! It's okay if you are not on the natural hair train, or, have been on it and it is not for you. It's okay. This blog is here for you. This is a hair mask I stumbled upon by curiosity. Since I can't eat Avocado without flatulence, surely I can put it to use in some other way... So, I had an inspiration, and, checked out the great big internet to see if others had ever done it. And, they had! So, I felt safe experimenting Avo on my hair. I used things  found around the house to make this DIY Mask. Also, this is a great Pre-Poo/Shampoo regimen.

 WHAT YOU WILL NEED:


  • A big sized Avocado should do. As you will see below, I used 3 small ones.
  • 2 Tablespoons of Pure Honey (please avoid those sugar syrups they pass off as honey, in order to avoid ants gathering around).
  • An egg.
  • A functional shower cap 


Slice the Avocado into two from top to bottom. Use your fingers to pick out the seed and that deadish-paper-like-thing(forgive my cluster) that serves as a covering for the seed.


It should look like this.




Use a spoon to scoop out the Avocado into a bowl. When you're done, break the egg into the same bowl, and, add the honey. Slightly beat it together, and pour the contents into a blender, and blend it into a smooth paste. There was no power supply when I did this, so I had to beat it to the best of my ability... This is what it looks like.

Use your hands to rub the paste on your head.


Gently massage the paste on the strands of your hair. Focus on your strands first, before your scalp. Do not forget to give your edges, and, ends(tips of your hair) a taste of this goodness, they are your prime priority.



Now, gently use your fingers to de-tangle your hair. I keep using the phrase gently, because your hair doesn't need aggression, keep that energy for pounding yam.



Before We continue, I want to share a small victory with you. I finally got my Learner's Permit! Driving in Lagos Nigeria is something else! It's like driving in a Maniac Grand Prix. Do you drive? What is it like where you drive? Tell Me in the Comment box below.



In continuation,
Massage it a little bit more, and use your shower cap to cover your hair for 10 minutes. 

Then, rinse out the Avocado mask. You will need A LOT of water for this. Use lukewarm water for this. Continuously rinse out the mask, use you  hands to scrub out the mixture, gently does it. LON Tip: Honey, DO NOT comb your hair just yet, chill. In fact, do not comb your hair until it is dry. Again, under no circumstance are you allowed to use hot water to rinse this out. You run the risk of cooking the egg in the mask. You might end up with not just tiny Avocado lumps but, egg white lumps too*cringe* Continue rinsing until the water from your hair is clear, and, looks clean. If you want, you can go ahead and just use shampoo at this stage.
However, I didn't. I felt the shampoo might remove the whole essence of using an organic hair mask. The decision is your to make Love, whatever rocks your boat.




Wrap your hair in a Towel and wait for water to stop dripping from it. Your best bet is to allow natural air dry your hair, and, not using a hand dryer. Unless, you're in a hurry. If you need any clarification about this, or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me in the comments below.

VERDICT: This mask made my hair shiny, I loved it! And, Would recommend it you, if you feel you hair needs a little polishing/shine. I also used this mask for my face, it's absolutely refreshing. 

That's it for this week guys, see you next week Sunday. Thank you for stopping by. Remember to follow me on Instagram @lilyofnigeria plus, I just made my first Ayamashe, go check it out there.

Get Ready With Me: Easy Dark Lips Makeup Tutorial for Valentine's Day

Hello Lovelies!
Happy Sunday :)


If you follow me on instagram click here you would have known ahead of time about this post. And, if you've read this post, then you are well informed that I'm a beginner in  the makeup arena.
So, yesterday I went for a former classmate's wedding. And I couldn't find any of my lipsticks! I had to find something to wear on my lips, and voila! I stumbled across this lip method.


WHAT YOU WILL NEED

 
1. A Dark Lip/Eye Pencil.
I used MAC Cosmetic pencil in Colour M05. It also has Vitamin E. I've had this pencil for a VERY long time now..my mom bought me a set of their pencils in my first year in the University.

2. An Eye/Lip Pencil Sharpener, just in case your pencil is blunt.


METHOD

Scrub your lips with sugar and olive oil. Use a clean wipe to remove any remaining residue.

Apply little brown powder to your lips.

You can use a darker shade, like black, to draw the area you plan to shade.

Use the pencil to lovingly shade your lips.

Apply a tiny pea sized drop of lip gloss, and, use your index finger to blend it with the shade on your lips.

Clean off any excess by the side of your lips.

Insert a clean finger into the middle of your mouth and bring it out (to avoid any stains on your teeth).



That's it. You're good to go.



Thank you for reading, have a nice day.
I hope you have a blessed Week. 

See you next week love.
