MAKEUP: SWEET ET SOUR

3:31 pm

Hiya!
Hope it is going well.
I do have a makeup look today, two as a matter of fact,
see picture below
Si I did not intend to do two looks... but can we be truthful here? can we?
I am tired of all these liquid lipsticks!
Just a total mess! You have to be really quick to apply it, not to mention verrry careful. Then after the struggle to apply, some feel like cement on your lips!
Then you can't eat Jollof rice in peace. You have to be eating it like you are eating hot yam, ever so carefulllyyy, so it won't start peeling off, but even at that, the middle starts peeling off, and your lips end up looking like a doughnut..you know with empty space in the middle!
 I JUST CAN'T ANYMORE! Makeup should not be that stressful nitori Olorun! I am kinda done with the trend. I think.


Anyhoos while I was doing this look, I decided to mix two liquid lipsticks together, and for some funny reason I did not have it easy






So I got angry and just did a nude lip ( I am a nude girl at heart, truly) and I think goes with this look really well, Sorta made me look angelic..(please let me have this moment lol)!!


I changed my blush as well to something more earthy, and did a paler illuminator.

  2. you really do look angelic. While I think liquid lipsticks look fantastic in pics, they are a disaster in real life. Im glad I let that trend pass me by. I like your references to food... I was dying of laughter over here.
