It's been quite a while since my last makeover post..
So, there's this piece of ankara head-wrap my mum left over at my place after Zuri's omugwo. It's been sitting pretty in my wardrobe for a very long time, and last week, i was like "'Warrahell', let me do a look with this fabric and post on the blog".
I was going to do the look since Friday, but Zuri gave me a fat upper lip on Thursday during one of her tantrums. I was trying to restrain her as she yelled and cried, and 'WHAM!!', she bashed the right side of my upper lip with the back of her head. I almost cried *i'm not ashamed to say....the pain was intense!*. My lip cut, and it started to swell up immediately. I shouted, and she in turn stopped crying and stared at me with a shocked look on her face.
It's been 3 days and it's still slightly swollen, but i couldn't hold off the makeover any longer.....the lip products concealed it well, but if you look closely, you can still see the bump. Oh well, i'll just chalk it up as one of the 'battle scars' of motherhood! *Tehehehehe!*.
Ok, so the Ankara fabric has Blue, Silver, Brick and yellow on it *even though i didn't incorporate the yellow color into the look*.
I used the brick color in my crease, on my lower eyelids, and on my lips. Then i used the Blue and Silver on my upper eyelids.
I didn't double my False lashes this time, and it took all my will-power not to. I've gotten so used to long and full lashes that fixing a light one doesn't quite 'do' it for me.
I remember when i just started fixing falsies. I hated it back then, but i knew that i had to fix them to enhance whatever look i create, so i kept practicing to get used to them. Back then, even the shortest lashes seemed too long to me, and the lightest seemed too full and heavy for me.
But over time, i began to love falsies sooo much that they weren't long enough or full enough for me anymore......and so the doubling began. I began to fix double lashes for that 'va-va-voom' effect for my makeovers. I just stick two lashes together, apply glue on the lash line, place on my eyelashes and voila! *bats lashes*.
