VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP INSPIRATION 

It’s that time of the year for the mushy sturvs! Can I get a “yaaaaaay” anyone?! ?

For y’all in relationships, well hope you’ve gotten your gift(s) ready and for the singu pringu, get your gifts ready too…for you! Yes, I said it: LOVE YOURSELF ALWAYS! No one can love you like you’ll do 


This is officially my first post since forever and what better time to come back than the time of love, ei? ?

Without further ado, here are 3 looks you might draw inspiration for the face beat of a special day. 

1) Something Nude

For ladies that don’t really know how to put on makeup apart from the basics, for makeup minimalists, or those who won’t be in the mood/have the time for a ‘proper face beat’, this one is for you. This look literally took me all of 15 minutes (plus singing & dancing [you know how we do ??])

  • Brows:

ABH Dipbrow pomade in Dark Brown

HVS Deluxe Eye/Brow palette- 3rd brown shade (I’ll be doing a review on this next)

Bennye Banana powder + Avon translucent powder to set

Bennye Pro powder in Sepia for all over the face


Sleek cosmetics Face contour kit in Dark for both contour & the highlight in same palette for natural glow

  • Eyes

A swipe of the Sleek cosmetics contour shade all over the eyes for a subtle eye look (make e no be like say nothing dey there ?)
