A friend of mine contacted me a few days ago about her makeup training set to kick off in March 2015.
Olaide Badmus is the C.E.O of Browneyes makeovers with very great prospects I must say.
She asked if I could help spread the word; so as a very nice person, lol! and a good business woman, I obliged!

Hope you are having a fabulous week?
Isn’t it quite annoying to buy an expensive lipstick and in less than a month, its broken 😦
I recently got Mac’s flat out fabulous after delaying for soo long; I forgot my makeup bag in my car and virtually all my lipsticks got melted and eventually broke!!!!!!! (Due to exposure to heat and the sun)
I did a little bit of research and here is ‘HOW TO FIX YOUR BROKEN LIPSTICK’
Forgive the low resolution of the pictures *covers face*
YOU WILL NEED-
( I COULD NOT FIND MINE, SO I USED BROOM STICKS AND LITE IT WITH FIRE FROM MY COOKER)
3. A FREEZER OR REFRIDGERATOR
step 1:Place the lipstick on the kitchen/toilet paper
Step 2: Pick the end of the lipstick and melt it; just a bit; so you don’t have too much product wasted.
Step 3: place the melted end of the lipstick back to FIT.
Step 4: Put it in the freezer or refrigerator FOR 15MINS
LIPSTICKS ARE BACK TO NORMAL….YAAAAY! WELL ALMOST!
clean up the messy edges with the toilet/kitchen paper

WELCOME TO 2015!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS MY FIRST POST FOR THE YEAR and I am super excited because I have a lot planned for this year.
Promise me we will have an even more fabulous year than the last :*
I am a sucker for great lip wear…. I invest in them; lip glosses, lipsticks, lip stains, lip liner pencils. YOU NAME IT!!!
Here are a few tricks I would like to share on getting the lip wear right.
First of all let us define the general lippie textures.
- Matte: Texture of the lip wear which means it is dry and longwearing.
- Satin or sheer: Very high oil content with shine and not longwearing; you may need to keep touching up when you use this
- Cream: Soft and smooth but not dry or shiny. Most appropriate for ladies with thin lips.
- Frosted: Very shiny with glisten and sparkle.
- Moisturizing: Containing ingredients like vitamin E, glycerine or aloe, which help treat dry lips; keeping them soft and smooth.
- Gloss; It applies very easily,Also shiny like satin/sheer; but it is much less permanent.
key note: The wetter the texture, the less long wearing it is.
NOW TO THE TRICKS/TIPS;
- TELL YOURSELF THE TRUTH: If the colour doesn’t suit you, it doesn’t, don’t sweat it hun! You do not have to wear a particular lip colour just because it is in vogue, it may appear lovely on your friend but not on you.
- Start out safe; go for a tone close to the natural colour of your skin. Remember that a lipstick extremely brighter than your natural colour may have a dulling effect on your complexion.
- Do not underestimate the power of a lip base. An undercoat of lip essence or balm will improve the lipstick colour,prevent dryness, and hide vertical lines.
- During lip wear application, start from the middle.
- Got thin lips?? Get a good lip plumber, it helps make lips appear fuller. If you are still not satisfied with the effect the plumber gives, go for strictly creamy lip wears. The creaminess adds some plumpness to the lips.
- Ladies with thin lips should avoid darker colours, dark shades will only show off those thin lips; well except you do not mind.
- Add some extra lip wear to the middle of your lips to make them appear fuller.
- Lip liners are not compulsory but are very effective! they help lipstick stay on longer and of course help in defining the lips, you can also make your lips look fuller or slimmer. Please try to AVOID LINING/PAINTING OUTSIDE THE LINE in the bid to make the lips fuller, this may end up bad. Stay right on the edge of the lips.
9. Another trick is to fill in fully with lip liner before applying the lipstick, you can play it safe with a nude liner for this.
10. The secret to choosing the right red lip color is in the undertones. Those with olive skin can wear fire-engine red. Dark skin looks great with deep reds, like the Mac Russian red lipstick.
11. Avoid too much sparkle; they look cheap
12. When testing the lipstick/lip wear in a store, swipe the stick on your fingertips; this is a closer fit to your lips than the back of your hand. Also remember to wipe off the end of the lipstick before you put it back for another person to try!
13. The prettiest nude lip color is slightly brighter or deeper than your skin tone. Generally light skin women look better on nudes, if you are a bit on the dark side you will have to take more time in finding one that suits. I promise to do a post on the nude lip, I would give the exact brand names as well and yes you are welcome!
14. Don’t throw out a bad shade of lipstick or one you do not like. You can blend lipsticks to get a fab colour. Makeup is all about art and creativity remember. If the lipstick is too bright, you can fill in lips with a darker liner(not a dark liner but a less lighter liner) before applying.
15. You can keep lipstick from marking your glass by licking your lips before taking a sip from a glass. It works!
16. Avoid the nasty! Keep lipstick off your teeth! After applying lipstick, take your index finger and pop it in your mouth, then pull it out. The excess lipstick will come off on your finger rather than your teeth.
17. If you notice a little bit of lipstick down in your tube, you can get it out with a lip brush. Lip brush is not just for contouring you know.
18. If you feel you look terrible in lipsticks, go for lip glosses or nice lip creams that give a soft look.
Take your time, go for what suits you, do not be afraid to test, try,have FUNNN and Be beautiful!!!
More posts on skin and undertones guys! love you all, do not forget to drop your comments and ideas.

Today’s post is a tribute to my favourite makeup artists in Nigeria; I did a similar post some weeks back. See here.
It’s Christmas and this is my way of showing love to the makeup industry rockers!
I like to issue a disclaimer here; I don’t intend to make anyone feel like less of an artiste, please note that this is entirely my opinion.
First up is……………………………………………
- Tints ‘N’ Ties beauty; Lamide Ojo is such an amazing artist with great technique and ranks tops on my list for the traditional wedding makeover. She is a mechanical engineer turned MUA, amazing right!?!
Lamide started her career in 2007 and over the years, has grown in leaps and bounds. She calls herself the makeup surgeon and I completely, totally and absolutely agree. Don’t You? She is fun, friendly and has a good sense of humor. Lamide I love your work!!! I hope this gets me free bridal makeover and yes I love you too *hides*
- Mamza beauty: Fatima Mamza. A power house in the Nigerian makeup industry. Super talented! Her clients; brides especially always look so effortlessly glammed up!
- Jide of St. Ola: Olajide Okerayi is a Chubby looking cutie; Lol! He is very creative and would give the female artists a run for their money.
- SITPREETY Beauty:’ Kunbi Fashakin CALLS HERSELF THE MAKEUP MAVERICK. NO DOUBT SHE IS A good ARTIST BUT I am drawn to her just because of HER AMAZING PERSONALITY. I MET HER EARLIER THIS YEAR AT THE MAYBELLINE MASTERCLASS AND I WAS IMMEDIATELY DRAWN TO HER, I DID NOT SPEAK TO HER TILL AFTER AND I ENJOYED THE 15 TO 20 MINUTES WE SPOKE. I am convinced she is the right mentor for those aspiring to be pro artists. Love and respect you maam!
- Leylarh cadne: Laila Rahman. I have known her for years since we attended the same secondary school. She never came across as one who would be interested in the beauty in dustry but ALAS I stumbled upon a picture of hers recently and I was shocked to say the least. Makeup very well done. Beat to perfection….well near perfection but all still amazing. You rock Honey!
- Chloe’s Makeover: Doyin Ubani. I also met Doyin at the Maybelline Masterclass with Bimpe Onakoya. She combines pro makeup artistry with beauty blogging (blogger like me, hehe) Dee is a fabulous blogger and i am always excited to see/read her-‘look of the day’post. Doyin is friendly, witty and is the best ‘beauty gist partner’, if there is anything like that.
- Eeswat makeovers: Iswat Alatise. I love her work just because….oh my gosh! Her gele (headgear) tying game is on point!!! Asides the headgear tying she is also a good artist and I want to say a big thank you and amen to all your encouragements and prayers for me, I am touched and completely appreciate them. *hugs*
Others I admire too;
- Dimma Umeh for thatigbochick beauty blog. LOVE HER BLOG!
- Bookielavida: Bukki Okoligwe is a very sweet lady. I want to applaud her for been the first to send in her pictures and works.One thing I admire about her work is that she does not ‘try too hard’ to get a lovely look. Very effortless!
Others I am looking out for next year…I think you should too.
- OSAGIE ESTHer for OGLAMAKEOVA
- Ewaoluwa for BlushnBrides
