(click on the link if you missed it: https://thebeautyinsiderng.wordpress.com/2013/09/17/skin-care-series-oily-skin/) Today, we’ll be talking about “dry skin”! How do you recognize a dry skin? What are the features of a dry skin and how do you care for it?

Sacred Skin Care Series: Oily Skin

Hey everyone, It’s been quite a busy week for me, hence my inability to write for some days now. My apologies please bear with me……:) You know what they say about pregnancy, “NOBODY’S A CUSTOMER TO PREGNANCY” *phew*. So I just had to write today, on the skin care series…… Lets talk about oily skin. How do you recognize it? How you care for it? What are the things you need to know about oily skin. Most of us are conversant with oily skin as it is very easy to identify due to the production of excess oil (technical term is sebum) that causes shine on the face. You know you have an oily skin if: .Your face is shiny, due to the overactive oil glands .You are prone to acne (pimples) and black heads .When touched, an oily skin sometimes feels coarse .Oily skin is characterized with large pores

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.

DIY: BRAIDED HAIRSTYLES

Hey everyone, So I came across this fabulous youtube channel “cute girl’s hairstyles”, and I was wowed!!!! It’s such an irony though that in a country like ours where we regularly do alot of braids that we don’t see some of these creative styles. These things should be a norm for us. This lady does amazing things with braids, I’m in awe of her creativity. The best part is, some of these hairstyles takes about 3 minutes or less to get them done Nigerians!!!!! We need to step up and be creative…. there are so many things to do, one just needs to think outside the box. Anyway, before I start going off the topic at hand *siiiiigh*…..:( LOL! Here are some of her videos. Lets learn new haistyles and go rocking *wink* “DOUBLE-TWISTED BUN UP DO” “WATERFALL TWISTS INTO MERMAID BRAIDS!” “STACKED TWIST PONYTAIL” I could have posted 10 of her videos if I wanted to, but that’s just going to be too much. looool In the meantime, let me know what you think. And you …

FEATURED MAKEUP ARTIST- PAT McGRATH

Hey everyone, Our today’s featured artist is PAT McGRATH. She is one of the most famous and well paid makeup artist in the world. I got to know about her when I was doing some research on the most famous artists in the world….. (Did a post on top 5 famous MUA in the world last week click here https://thebeautyinsiderng.wordpress.com/2013/08/29/five-most-famous-makeup-artists-in-the-world/ if u missed it) Now there were 4 other artists but I took special interest in her because, in according to the article she “NEVER” had any formal training in fashion nor in make up. She got her training listening to her mother’s comments while watching classic movies. WOW!!!!! Little wonder Vogue Magazine named her as the “MOST INFLUENTIAL MAKEUP ARTIST” in the world today. McGrath is also credited for setting up the cosmetic line of Armani. She has also been the Beauty Director of Max Factor and Cover Girl cosmetic. she has said, “I really love being a makeup artist. It never gets mundane or predictable and every shoot and show is different.” According …

DIY OMBRE HAIR BY BACKSYNCFAN

Hey everyone, It’s DIY Wednesday…… *drum roll* So today, we will be doing a “DIY OMBRE HAIR”. Ombre hair has been trending for quite a while now, and still is. But I happen to be one of those who would rather treat my weave myself than give it to someone to do it for me. The first time I ever tried giving my new weave to a stylist she messed up my hair so bad,I regretted ever thinking about it and then going ahead to give her the weave to highlight for me. I love highlights on my hair so much! Towards the end of last year and early this year I had a signature hairstyle going on for months….. One time it was purpe, and then I did blue, red, and white lol. I was having fun playing with colors and I loved it. Pregnancy however, made me go on a break……:( *sigh*. Can’t wait to bounce back looooool. It’s not like I can’t do it now, afterall it would be done on a …

DIY: LIPSTICK PALLETE

Hey everyone, It’s DIY Wednesday again, whoo hoo……… “Lipstick pallete a space saver”. Who relates with me on this? Many a time I get tired of carrying so many different lipsticks or lip gloss in one purse. It gets so tiring, apart from the fact that most times the purse gets heavy due to the different products meant for different purposes in the purse. That’s one, two Imagine (makeup artists would relate more with this) having a bag full of high end lipsticks or that favorite lip color you love and then you loose the bag or some of your products…..It is really painful trust. Makeup artists suffer this a lot especially when they have to work in a crowded place it gets all crazy and if you are not careful or observant, your products get missing. Palletes come in very handy anyday, anytime. Sometimes your favorite lipgloss falls and breaks obviously it’s already useless but don’t toss the content with the bottle just yet, you can empty it into a storage can. There are …

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 …
