Hey ladies! Hope you enjoyed last week’s tips on how to repair damaged hair and promote better growth? Now, am I the only one that can’t keep up with the number of parties this festive season? Asoebi, hair, makeup, gele are just some of the areas every woman considers before stepping out and boy do they come at a price!
With you in mind, I have come up with these tips to help you look glam this season without breaking the bank!
DIY FESTIVE GLAM
Some products are a necessity! Here are my TOP 5 beauty items that I wouldn’t let go of!
Beauty Blender: These babies come to life when wet. Run your blender under water, squeeze out any excess, and start your journey to flawless coverage. With a sponge, you can apply foundation like a pro in just a matter of minutes. What’s more exciting is that they don’t cost that much. From as little as N1500, you can get really good blenders! Why don’t you give Nuban Beauty Pro Blending Sponges a try?
Eyeliner: Your eyes are the window to your soul they say! So, you must make sure that your eyes are on fleek at all times. Super jet black eyeliner can awaken tired eyes and make you feel sexy! The mother of all eyeliners is our ShoMya Jet Black eyeliner. Purchase this powerful pencil for just N3000 at our Lekki studio.
False lashes: With falsies, no one is going to know that you didn’t get your makeup done professionally. To purchase a good pair, you’re most likely going to spend between N800 to N3000 depending on the quality and style of the lashes. SitPretty Studio have a beautiful range, and so do @Wholesalelashesng via Instagram.
Red lipstick: Take a simple look from zero to 100% fire, in just 1minute by applying a hot red lipstick. Classics like MAC’S RUBYWOO never get old! Another red lippie to have take the beauty world by storm is Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint. It’s a long wear fluid lip colour that doesn’t crack and is super saturated!
Braided wigs: Some of you may know that I had a baby not so long ago, in September. Nothing, absolutely nothing, made my struggle to stay glam as easy as my braided wigs did! They’re low maintenance and so easy to wear. With the immense pressure to live up to social expectations this Christmas, braided wigs are the way to go. Watch out for our ShoMya Braided Wig SALE in the next few days!
So that’s it my beautiful women. Stick to these 5 items and apply your makeup like a pro this festive season. Merry Christmas to you all! Super excited to enter into 2018!!!
As always, I look forward to hearing from you.
