If you’re “hip” and keep up with latest beauty trends (if you’re not, don’t worry I’m struggling too), you might have noticed that DIY activated charcoal masks made with glue are the new thing right now. I don’t know who launched this trend but I would never use glue on my face or advise anyone else to. I had to look for a better alternative to glue and share my experience before we all got dragged under. There are numerous benefits of activated charcoal including teeth whitening and underarm lightening but we’ll be focusing on the skin benefits in this post.

I get the “how do I take care of my wigs?” question a lot so I decided to finally put this out. Hopefully, it answers your questions concerning wig care and is as helpful as it was to others I’ve given a summary of this.

I mentioned here that there were already talks of another workshop, we loved the feedback we got from the first and decided to give it another go so more people can benefit from the workshop/training. We got requests to have workshops in different states and hopefully we would get around to doing just that some time in the nearest future but for this second edition, we’ll be sticking to our main base; Lagos! Everything you need to know about the workshop is stated below and remember we’ll only be taking a few people to ensure it’s a hands-on experience!
After my experience with some not-so-excellent albeit expensive crochet extensions, I decided to seek for cheaper options but they all came within the same price range. I stumbled upon this method on Pinterest and decided to share, one good thing about this is if you do not have the time or patience to do it yourself, you can buy your extensions and give it to your local hair dresser to assist, although it might take a lot of explaining but it’s still a cheaper alternative and you get to customize the size and color you want.
A couple of weeks ago, Ella of NaturalGirlOnABudget came to me with the idea of organizing a wig making workshop to train a few women on the art and processes involved in making wigs. I was excited and jumped on it because honestly, wig making is a good way of earning money whether as a major source of income or as a side hustle or just as a hobby for yourself and friends. We contacted Tosin of NaijaNaturals and she readily accepted to assist in making it a reality (Thank you!). We’ve tried as much as possible to be fair with the pricing considering the recent economy recession, but you have to spend money to get money, right? All the details are available below:
When: 8th of October.
Time: 12p.m – 6p.m
Where: Venue details are sent upon registration.
What You Should Come With: Just your awesome self and a right attitude towards learning! Continue reading “The Wig Making Workshop”
I know it’s been a while since I’ve shared any makeup tips or looks. But I got inspired to do this today all thanks to a look I saw on Instagram by @jassmich and I just had to recreate it. I usually don’t like using colours on my eyes, but as a makeup artist you have to always try things and also it was just so beautiful I had to do it.
I will be sharing few products I used to achieve this look
Ohhh btw, I’ve been loving the inglot pure pigment eyeshadows a lot these days.
Inglot pure pigment eyeshadow -113
Inglot eyeliner 77
Sleek bad girl palette

Erre due luxury waterproof pencil “eye 31”
I’ve been loving my skin these days that I don’t even use any face primer and my makeup stays on for the whole day.
-MAC studio fix foundation “Nc45”
-L.A girl HD concealer “creamy beige”
-MAC mineralize powder “Light & dark”
-Maybelline clear smooth powder “cocao” X Chanel healthy glow sheer powder “70” to contour.

There you have it! The details of the products used to create this look. Hope you guys love it.
You can get the Inglot products in any Inglot store around you. I got mine at the Inglot store while I was on holiday in Athens. Same as the lipstick and the Erre due eyeliner at the galerie de beaute store.
I’ve wanted to try vixen crochet braids for as long as I can remember, I finally got around to making up my mind to get it done and when I asked around, the average price to have it done at a salon is 9000 Naira. Currently, I don’t have that type of money lying around so I decided to crawl out of my lazy shell and do it myself; best decision I’ve made in a while. It is really easy to do and easier if you have a friend that can assist with the braid pattern.
It breaks my heart when my favourite makeup products drops and shatters into pieces. Most especially if it is a new product. The feeling is indescribable! Just beyond words. But the good thing is that you don’t have to throw it away. Although this solution isn’t just for shattered products but also for cream eyeshadows, blush or liners that has dried out. Like I said you do not need to get rid of them.
