Rock Chic Humid She!

Hey Pretties,

i would like to introduce my Muse,Mabel. Though she hasn't come to terms with the fact that she's got the most amazing facial features any artist would love.

Mabs, your before was needed to drive home a point. That you are beautiful!!!

So i decided to do a number on her. I admit that green is one of the scary & hardly used colors in my kit because if not properly blended, you could have a hot mess about you.

All Eyeshadows are by MAC Cosmetics
 It's amazing what a bit of sculpting here and highlighting there could do for any face, but you need to understand what intensity goes where. That's a topic for another discussion.

For the face, i used :

- Good old Marykay Liquid Foundation in 600 & 607; MAC Studio Finish Concealer NW45 mixed with Milani's Pot Concealer in Honey 03 ; Iman Powder in Medium & Light Medium; Black Opal Blush in Wild Orchid .

Lashes are Red Cherry 110
Lips - Zaron lippencil in Cappuccino
MAC Lipsstick in Myth ; MAC lipglass in Viva Glam

Lips - Jordana lippencil in PlumMAC lipstick in Viva Glam Nicki 2 ; Clear gloss
                                     Lips - Jordana lip pencil in Plush Red   BM Pro Long Lasting Lipgloss in REDD

I don't know which look i loved the best, but she carried all so well, she could have been mistaken for a Rock Star.

Do you have amazing skin?Are you confident you have the best features?Would you like to sit in my chair? Please send me an email : with pictures of yourself as well as what you do.

New Business Venture : Sit Pretty Beauty

Hey Pretties,

so i have some good news to share and i believe i can count on you all to run with the vision.

For a long time coming, my love for quality makeup has known no end as i have purchased, hoarded,coveted and eyed many makeup brands all over the world.

Then, i started my business and my passion for makeup and exploring all opportunities grew. I started buying makeup way back in Tejuoso(from Alhaja's shop and other petty traders), some i didn't know how to use but bought ; some were the wrong shade ; some were expired and some were ..... you guessed right - FAKE.

Thankfully, the internet helped me discern between all that was out there and with regular bloggers like Stella Ikelionwu of Stella's Addiction , i knew i was on the right path, albeit on a more quieter level.

So with the advise of close friends and family, i decided to give makeup retailing a shot & SIT PRETTY BEAUTY was formed.

What's so special?? I heard you ask. NOTHING except for the fact that the person behind the brand loves the makeup industry and would like to share knowledge about her craft and then.... make money doing it *wink*. Great thing is that i plan to review most of the products to give all consumers an idea of what they would be purchasing as well as how to get the best of their purchases

Products to be sold :

- Lash Glue
- Lashes
- Foundations
- Eyeshadows
- Lipsticks
- Lipglosses
- Eyeliners
- Powders
- Eyeshadow Primers
- Face Primers
- Makeup Brushes
- Makeup DVDs
- Makeup Books
- Brush holders & belts
and so much more

Over time, i'll update you on available stock & how you can get them

I'm excited, trust i made you equally excited

I'm a Duchess Walking on the Red Carpet : A Pibona Review

Hey Pretties,

As part of my promise to my readers, i ensure i do looks with products i purchase , sell or review. And this has been long ignored.

In my Pibona haul are 4 Fantastic Products and so for this look,i used :

 - Pibona Trio Mineral Eyeshadow in Duchess

- Pibona Matte Lipstick in Red Carpet (A Red Matte Lipstick that applies smoothly and has moisturizing properties)

- Pibona Luxury Lipgloss in Vivid Dream (A Pink Bubblegum-colored pigmented lipgloss that smells yummy)

- Pibona Luxury Lipgloss in Skinny Dip (A Champagne-colored lipgloss)

What I Think About Pibona :

- The Packaging is sleek, black in colour and the products come in velvet pouches which i think make good keepsakes for those pricey earrings you own.
- The Eyeshadows are a bit hard to get the colour off, but i found that with a firm and previously moistened brush, you get to pick up the shadows better and they apply and blend beautifully.
- The lipglosses smell yummy and the quantity is a good bargain
- It's a brand to look out for on the Nigerian scene

You can get these products on JUMIA. Now that you know how they look, happy shopping.

Thanks PIBONA once again for the addition to my kit.

Replicate : AB Jayne's Church Look

Hey Pretties,

i honestly can't get over AB Jayne's white wedding look. I knew a slightly nude (nude is relative though, i love me some color) look with a pop of color would have flattered her fair complexion so well and that's what i aimed for.

She also had these very angled brow arches, so i decided to round them off and i must say i loved the outcome.

Products Used :

Brows : MAC brow pencil in SPIKED

Eyes : MAC matte eyeshadows in YOGURT , BROWNSCRIPT , FIG. 1 & CARBON
                Red Cherry lashes in 99

Cheeks : Bm Pro matte eyeshadow (yes!!! Eyeshadow) in pink

Lips : Zaron Lip pencil in PRUNE JUICE
               MAC Amplified Cream Lipstick in VIVA GLAM NICKI 2
               MAC Satin Lipstick in MYTH
               MAC Clear Lipglass

Have fun recreating the look
