Hello lovies!! 
I have been away for too long, I have been busy, but but, this blog is like a baby to me, so no excuse for being negligent! I apologise!
Thanks to those that sent me emails, asking if I was ok, you guys keep me moving!

I have a makeup look for you guys! I dont know if purple is my favourite color, (I don't think I have one) but i tend to use it a lot. Purple/berry lipsticks and eyeshadows! I think it works well with dark skin. And I like it because it works well with other colors. It could be bright, It could be dark...

Creating this look was quite easy.I used a yellow eyeshadow (yes yellow! don't know why it looks like lime!) all over my eyelid, then put in purple in my crease and blended it out with a reddish orange! I then put silver eyeshadow in the inner corner of my eye to brighten things up. Then...

Then I used a combination of a deep purple  and berry lipstick. check out more pictures..

I absolutely enjoyed this look! It is edgy and probably not the kind of makeup you see everyday! Hope you like it as much as I do!

  7. Wow...found your blog a couple of weeks back and I must say i'm in love with you already. I've never been one to spend money on make ups partly because I didn't think it was worth it and because i'm scared of something different and not like it so I just stick to the normal compact powder, eye pencil, kajal, little eye shadow and my lip gloss look. Got inspired by your blog and I went shopping! From Tara to Zaron, Mac and Revlon. When they gave me the bill, I was shocked! 32 THOUSAND!! I've never spent more than 5k on make ups. I paid and left. I always go through your step by step tutorial whenever i'm going out and it's been amazing so far. Some days I have to wash my face and start afresh over 5times . I tried something different on my own yesterday. I mixed Zaron's barefaced lipstick and Tara's sapele. And it was just beautiful. My son couldn't stop taking pictures and sending to my mother inlaw and my sisters. My hubby has been encouraging me to go shop some u very much Sweetie pls keep up the good work.
