Hello bellas! How’s it hanging?

So I have been talking about a giveaway since last year, but here it is FINALLY! This is to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of this blog! Sometimes I look back and it feels like I have been doing this for 5 years! Other times, I do some things and I go “no wonder, you are still a baby blogger” lool. But it has been fun, and interesting all the way!! And I love and appreciate you guys soooo much, even more than lipstick! Ha!
So the giveaway has been divided into two, i.e there will be TWO giveaways! Did somebody say hallelujah?! Well I've always wanted to do another competition after the EYEBROW COMPETITION but never had the time to organise it, so i thought this would be a perfect opportunity. And then I also thought, I might have diligent readers, that might be toooo shy to participate in the competition! Should they be left out? N to the O! So there’s another giveaway for those shy people!
So here goes...



The theme of the competition is ‘SMOKE IT UP”.  You have to create a full makeup look , that falls under this theme (or what you understand by this theme; makeup is ART not science; be free, be creative). The look should include well done eyebrows, well done eye makeup, well done lip makeup  and  well done face makeup, in other words, A complete look...


This box includes:
·         MAC LIPSTICK

  6. I'm Oguleye Iwalewa. This is going 2 be an honest opinion,no flattery- this is the best,most educative blog I have ever visited! I love the flow of knowledge,you write in the common language without "big big" grammar making it so interesting and fun. I love the DIYs, I love that u go 2 d basics teaching "otondos" like us makeup from d scratch. I also love looking at d pictures they are clear and this site is easy 2 navigate.
    For 2014, I would love 2 see more of the DIYs, also a fashion(makeup) police can be set up 2 show d dos and donts in makeup. Lastly, 2 make shopping easier, d products can be grouped indifferent categories, E.g for "Face" products like d powder,foundation e.t.c can come here so a customer don't have 2 go down all d way or as an alternative, a "Search" button can be added. Once again I loveeee this blog! Kudos 2 u and hope I win...*winks*
