Trend Alert : Defined Brows – Love it or Loathe it [Readers Poll]

Hello my lovelies, I’m so excited! I’m Owumi and this is my first post here at Sacred and hopefully every week I’ll bring you a new trend I come across in my adventures on the worldwide web (big smile). So to start with i’m serving up a trend that seems to be getting more and more popular among women, not only in Nigeria but all around the beauty world. It’s on runways, red carpets, magazine covers and yes, even on the busy streets of Lagos. I’m talking about the sharp..defined, full brows (aka the Naija Brow). The first time I noticed this major trend was on the beautiful actress Lily Collins. I fell in love instantly, and being the eager bunny that I am, I went around looking for videos to learn how to get the look.   Alot of people have been inspired to re-create these brows as all the big celebrities seem to be embracing them along with the extreme Highlight and Contour look as seen on Kim K, Beyonce, Rhianna, Miley Cyrus …

MAKEUP TUTORIAL: HALOWEEN MAKEUP

*evil laughter*…. HEY EVERYONE, It’s that time of the year….whoop whoop!!!! Haloween is here again, now I know it’s not a Nigerian culture, but!!! hold on……, last year I did notice it was celebrated in Nigeria. Lagos to be precise… YES!! Which has led me or rather inspired me to post this video *grin* So I searched for some haloween makeup tutorial, this one just seem to be more fun and interesting don’t you think? LOOOOOL Anyway, here are 2 video tutorials by “letzmakeup and pixiwoo” watch it and have fun on haloween. After all haloween is all about having fun right?….:)

MAKEUP TUTORIAL: GLITTERY SMOKEY PURPLE EYES

Hey everyone, If there’s anything I love about the famous “queen of blending” is the fact that she’s just fantastic when it comes to getting a smokey eye done. She does it so well, and I just love the fact that she plays with colors and glitters as well. So here’s a makeup tutorial on how to do a glittery purple smokey eye. Errrrrrm OK, I love they whole glitters and purple color going on, but quick edit for me, for me oh….. cos this final look is just too plenty for me lol! I’d do without the colored glittery brow, I’d be just fine with a regular not so emphasized brow, and a more natural lip works just fine for me *phew*!!!!! What’s your opinion on his look? Oh and did anybody noticed her claws nails? loooool

MAKEUP TUTORIAL – HOW TO: NATURAL MAKEUP

Hey everyone, YELZ THAT’S ME!!!! hehehehehe…. It took me a lot of courage to do this (putting up my picture ie. But how long shall I hide for?) *phew* So I had planned to do a video on this one, to show you my everyday natural look. For some reason, my camera decided to act up… 😦 So I am a little upset or should I say disappointed. I’ll just have explanation and show it in pictures rather than a video. I do however have a tutorial video by michelle phan attached below, you may want to also check that out also….:) Lets get started!!!! STEP 1 I start out with a clean skin, making sure every form of dirt is out by either washing my face or using a facial wipes.

MAKEUP TUTORIAL: EASY WAYS TO USE A LIQUID LINER

HELLO EVERYONE, It’s Sunday again…… that’s one day I look forward to for so many reasons including posting a makeup tutorial for you our beautiful gods and goddesses……:) Training as a makeup artist like I said, was a little challenging for me. Because I had the mind set of a typical Nigerian saying to myself, “oh it’s just the application of foundation and powder and all that needs to be applied and I’m done”. I got more than I bargained for lol. I think I should do a post on my experience while training to become a makeup artist *thinking*. Anyway, back to the topic at hand……..:) most of us find using the liquid liner quite difficult especially as a beginner. I had a lot of issues myself as a beginner, My boss would make me clean off her liner and ask me to put it back on and it has to be exactly the way she wears her liner *phew*. And for every time I do it wrongly, she would make me clean it …

STEP BY STEP EYESHADOW TUTORIAL – FOR ALL EYE SHAPES

Hey everyone, The weekend’s here again… TGIF right? lol…..so it’s Friday and I try to do some makeup tutorials every friday. (forgive me if some of my posts come in late I’m 8 hours behind CAT. Most times I have to stay up till midnight so I can do an early post in Nigerian time and with pregnancy, it’s just difficult trying to keep the eyes open when it’s been programed to be shut looool.) So today’s tutorial shows how to apply eyeshadows on different eye shapes. Now my question to you today is: “Do you know the different eye shapes?” How many of us know that not all eye shadow application suits all eye shapes? There’s the almond eyes which almost everything goes well with it. Hooded eye shape you want to be careful how and what you apply on it, the deep set eyes, the prominent eyes, the round eyes, close set eyes…..*phew* understanding eye shapes is just a topic on it’s on entirely. But it is very important to know the different …
