Hello my people!! 
Everyday everyday I say to myself at the beginning of the day, I have to post on the blog. But after working all day, no strength left to do makeup, take like 200 pictures, edit, compose a post, wait for the spoilt banana we call internet here In Nigeria to upload pics etc... by the time I think of all these things, im already snoring. *sigh* It hasnt been easy at all. The online store has been taking 99% of my time (y'all do not want to know the stress
Even I Have been feeling bad, because this blog and OlúMakeovers now seem like the neglected first born, social media 2nd born, new online store, last born (for now hehe)...and we all know which of the children enjoy most! #teamlastborn *batting eyelashes* 

*oh and I have an exciting annoucement down this post* Heyyy!! Come back and look at the pictures first, dont just scroll down!! Ha! you pipu!!
Today's post is a makeup post, with the title you already know what it is! This look is full on glitter!

On the eyes I used gold and red glitter dust from Mehron, you havent seen glitter finer than this, I assure you.
I wish i could have shown you guys the techniques I used to blend my glitters together, because glitter or not, I hate flag eye look..I always blend, sometimes to a fault. I am still working on my video channel, these things take strength!

Can you guys see the massive break out on my face. STRESS!! Infact right now as I type, I have two boil looking pimples on my face. One is underneath my eye, and it so large, it looks like an agbero punched me in the eye. I am not even kidding.
And then there is another one under my lip that looks like I went to pierce my lip under Ojuelegba bridge. I dont even know what to do again.

Anyways, acne or not, I still have to do what I have to do right? Ah, the love of makeup
Then for the lip I used a red lipliner coupled with a fire orange red lipstick. Both Nigerian Products! How cool is that!!

Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Mocha and Mahogany, 
Caramel for highlight.
Ben Nye Mohave pressed Powder in Americano
Ben Nye Ebony Translucent powder.
Black Opal Face Highlighter in Gold
Mac Blush in Frankly Scarlet
Zaron Eyebrow Definer for cheeks
Mac Eyebrow Pencil in Stud
Milani Sunset strip bronzer for bridge of nose.

Mehron Glitter Dust in 24 Karat and Dynamite
Mehron Intense Pigment Eyeshadow in Carbon (the blackest eyeshadow in the world!)
Red Cherry Human hair lashes in 747L
Mac Technakohl kajal liner in black 

Zaron Red Vines Lipliner
Tara Matte Lip Color in Sabo.
