How you doing this fine Thursday morning?
These okada riders will not ‘laputa’ someone in this Lagos. This morning on my way back from school runs, one hit my car from the back and fell ‘yakata’ on the road….hian! Yesterday, one lad riding some yards ahead of my car made a sudden U-turn in the middle of the road. I had to brake suddenly to avoid hitting him….thank heavens there was no car behind me or even another mumu-ish okada rider.
When i was thinking about what look to do, ‘Red’ came to mind. I wanted fiery eyes with some sort of glint, and nude/almost bare lips.
I didn’t have a red eyeshadow in the shade i wanted, so i grabbed my Sleek ‘Scandalous’ blush and packed it on my eyelids…..yeah, you heard me right! I used blush on my eyelids *Looooool!*. I’m sure that lots of makeup artists improvise like that. Sometimes, i use face powder as an eyeshadow sef! *If i’m going for a matte skin-tone shade on the eyes*
Ehn-hen, so i used ‘Scandalous on my eyes, then i added a gold glint in the inner corners. After that, i contoured the outer corners with a brown eyeshadow, lined the upper lash line with my Zaron ‘Jazz’ gel liner and did my waterlines with my Zaron ‘Black velvet’ pencil. I finished up with my Bee lashes in #747M.
For my lips, i went nude. I used a Marykay lip gloss with gold shimmer in it to complement the gold inner corners of my eyes. Unfortunately, i couldn’t find the name of the lipgloss written anywhere on it.
I wore the look out, and people loved it. I rarely wear my looks out, rather i wash it off after taking pictures *covers face*. I loved the look, it came out exactly like i pictured it.
