I thought we should take a break from all the beauty posts *Whew! wipes brow*. At a point sef, i was wondering when my blog turned to a 'skin care' blog. It's also meant to be about makeup products, product reviews, make-over pictures, make-up tips, infact......all things beauty. But now, it seems like the skin-care posts wants to over-shadow the whole thing. Don't worry, i'll try to strike a balance. I also plan to feature other MUAs......(An idea i got from MISYKONA'S blog). You know.......show case them so that if you are in different parts of Nigeria, you will know who to call on for your special occasions make-overs. *Winks*
But the thing is that these plenty skin care posts are actually necessary. A clean, clear skin is pertinent. If you want flawless make-up, then you should strive to have flawless skin! Some people wonder why it takes a lot of time for their foundation to blend into their skin or for their skin to absorb their moisturizer while they rub and rub. I have just one question for you.....when last did you exfoliate? Huh? Huh? Huh? *side eye*. How do you expect it to absorb well when there are dead skin cells covering your skin?
Some people don't even feel comfortable without makeup. They can't bear to be seen with their natural faces because its covered with orishirishi *insert bbm evil smiley here*. Meanwhile, they have the power to look as beautiful as they want to be. Personally, i even prefer my natural face to my made up face (I've been told so severally too)......why? Because i take care of my skin, and it looks clean enough for me to flaunt. I do facials once a week ( yeah.....cleansing, exfoliating, steaming, masking), i cleanse morning and night, i never use bar soaps that are meant for the rest of the body for my face....rather, i use my Mary Kay gel cleanser to wash my face twice daily. I do a full body exfoliation twice a week with my St Ives Apricot body scrub and my pair of exfoliating gloves (Thanks again princess Mma *hugs*). I moisturize my face every morning and every night. I exfoliate my lips twice a week and moisturize it too.......anyway, lemme not bore you with my routine, but my point is that you SHOULD have a routine too! If you have blackheads, whiteheads or acne, they will greatly reduce if you develop and stick to a proper routine, and soon you will have nothing to be ashamed of and proudly bare your natural face for the world to see. If your problem is the expensive products, i usually post some natural and affordable recipes that are just as effective as the chemical ones in bottles and jars.

Yesterday, i modelled for a MUA friend of mine....it was fun and i'll post the pictures of the make-over later, stay tuned. Like i mentioned earlier, i'll start a segment where i will be featuring other MUAs and their works so that if you are in Enugu, Lagos, PH, Abuja, etc.....you will not be so confused when you need to hire the services of a MUA when you need it.
As time goes on, i will introduce more segments to my blog to make it more interesting and fun to visit.
But for now, i gats to go!
