Some of my favourite make-up (MAC foundation, Modern Muse by Estee Lauder, Catrice Eyeshadow and Estee Lauder limited highlighter)
Nothing is more frustrating than realising you’ve only got 30 minutes until you’re suppose to be at work or at your next lecture leaving you with only 15 minutes to do your make-up. So during the week I opt for a more natural and less look with medium coverage on my face, because I just never have enough time to apply a full face of make-up.
So here are my go-to makeup products that I use and some tips to help you enhance your makeup so you look extra flawless.
“I had my ups and downs but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up I was served lemons, but I made lemonade…” – Hattie White (JayZ’s grandmother)
Today is officially ‘Lemonade’ Day. So if we could all just pause for a moment and reflect on the slayage that Beyoncé just did in her latest album ‘Lemonade’ visually and lyrically.
Coachella has become one of the most popular and loved music festivals in the recent years. As the years go by the festival is only continuing to gain more momentum and support from people all over the world.
What I loved most about this year’s fashion at Coachella was how everyone was so different no one tried to look or imitate anyone’s look. You could find people of different styles and cultures there, it definitely looked like a vibrant and an exciting weekend for those who were there. While the rest of us suffered from a serious case of FOMO. 😦
Here are some of my favourite moments from weekend one of Coachella which were captured by Dreily.S. If you want to see more of his work head on over to GQ magazine, I’ll post the link at the bottom.
Take me away to Coachella Style Look
So the first weekend of Coachella has come and gone, but the next weekend is also guaranteed to be another show-stopping, fashionable weekend. Since I can’t attend Coachella for the next 10 years of my life I can only imagine myself being there and dancing the day and night away to some of my favourite bands and artists.
The most exciting thing about Coachella besides the music and festivities is the fashion. Just because I am not there it does not stop me from daydreaming of all the wonderful outfits I could rocking during the two consecutive weekends of the music festival. To those of you who are attending the event, I’m super envious of you and to anyone looking for inspiration for future music festivals that they will be attending, once again I’m super envious of you. Nonetheless I am still willing to share with you some fashion tips and looks for all you lovely, boho, festive ladies.
Okay, I know I’m no make-up artist or professional beautician but I do know a thing or two about make-up and its products. This week I want to share one of my favourite make-up/ beauty product with you and tips on how to use it and care for it.
I can safely say I completely understand the obsession over the beauty blender. Although I do not own the original beauty blender as they are quite difficult to find in South Africa. The Urban Beauty United (UBU) Baby Blender works just as perfectly and flawlessly. For my South African readers you can purchase your own UBU Baby Blender at any Clicks store for only R125. Which is a reasonable price in comparison to the original Beauty Blender which goes for R250 and that’s excluding shipping. Yikes!
