Hello people! how is it going?
The giveaway competition is still on. click HERE for details

I know i have said it here before about how I forget to do posts on the actual makeup work that I do. Which is funny because it was one of the reasons I started blogging. I guess the wind has blown me to another direction, but I shan't gree. lol. I will remain on course.

So i did series of shoots last year (If you follow Olumakeovers on Instagram- you most likely would have seen these looks), this is one of them. I wanted to do a traditional look so I used the benin/edo beads attire.

I wanted a kind of healthy glow without an overpowering look. I wanted a subtle look that would still look glamorous, so I went crazy with my blending. I did a mix of golden and coral tones on the eyes amd also a not too flasy coral on the lips. I used a nice orange blush and added some bronzer to give a healthy glow. 

Tip: Check your blending with a harsh camera flash, if it looks seMless, then you are good to go.
