Chiffon on White Pants

Make up Essential for Beginners.


 These are actually the basic components of a makeup purse everyone who’s doing it right started from:
  1. Powder Foundation – This is the ” foundation” of makeup once you apply “pancakes” even if that’s all you do – you’ve applied makeup. So get a colour that matches your skin profile and begin MAKEUP. A foundation actually acts as a regular foundation, I.e holding the weight on it but in this case its holding your makeup so it doesn’t go off while you’re out and about. (You can opt to add liquid foundation to your kit if you want heavier coverage).
  1. Concealer – We all wish we had no acne, no sun spots, no blemishes whatsoever, and no dark circles. Unfortunately, even the most perfect of complexions still need a little concealing here and there. Conceal your blemishes and make sure to set it with powder.
  2. Lipsticks and lip balms: there’s a variety of them but please don’t apply dry lipstick in an environment that’s dry you’ll end up with cracked lips. I would advice that as a beginner, you stick to colour shades near that of your skin before you go “viral.”
  3. Eyeshadow Palette in Earth Tones – It’s amazing how a little eyeshadow can make a difference in our sleepy, tired eyes. You don’t have to be an expert in applying eyeshadow, just don’t use too many colors except the colours are on riot. If you’re still practicing! One shade will do for a beginner, just to open up your eyes. You can skip this if you’re low on cash 
  4. Eyeliner in Black and Brown – Eyeliners instantly make your eyes open and look more defined with eyeliner! It doesn’t matter what kind you use — pencil, gel, or liquid. Don’t skip this. It makes a HUGE difference.
  1. Eyelash Curler – Open up your eyes even more by curling your lashes. It makes you look more feminine and your eyes look extra flirty. Though this is a bit advanced for a learner but give it a try it’s really beautiful. You won’t regret it!
  2. Black Waterproof Mascara – Of course, after curling your lashes, apply mascara! Waterproof is better cos it sticks.
  3. Eyebrow Pencil – This helps to keep your eyebrows looking neat.
  4. Wipes: You definitely need these to clean up your face especially at night even when your too tired to take a bath.

Rule 3: When in doubt, wear pumps.


Rule 4: Jeans necessitate more formal pairings, like a blazer and smart oxfords.


 Rule 5: Make sure all items are pressed and as wrinkle-free as possible.


 Rule 6: Don’t go overboard with print mixing. A subtle stripe and floral is on point.

Rule 7: If you wear a slightly sheer top, make sure to top it with a blazer. Wear a camisole underneath to be extra safe.

Rule 8: The safest hemline is at the knee. Never go shorter than a few inches above the knee.

Rule 9: If you want to wear a bold piece like printed pants, balance it with polished items, like a crisp white blouse

Here are few tips for you:



3 Things You Must Know Before Wearing Off-The-Shoulder Dress

If there’s any piece of clothing that is blowing up like wildfire right now, it has to be the one and only off-the-shoulder dress. In fact, in every version – from tops, dresses to jumpsuits, the shoulder baring silhouette has proven it true value. While the trend continue to enjoy its moments, we feel that they’re few things you should know before wearing it.

#1. From the name alone, even without being told, the number is all about showing off a bare shoulder while your skin is taking centre stage. In this case, ensure your skin is glowing enough to take the risk but if you don’t feel comfortable showing it off , layer it under a jacket or blazer.

#2. There are lots of versions out there. Some are demure for the cool-girls while some are sexiest barely-there for Rihanna kind of girl. Should you want to wear the Rihanna kind of version, for support and in order to avoid any wardrobe malfunction, we advice you wear a backless and strapless bra.

#3. With anything shoulder baring, your skin is the major accessory. So, there’s no need adding a necklace to your neck – just allow your skin/shoulders take all the attention. 



Dressing Right For The Rainy Season In Nigeria.

There are few things worse than getting caught in the rain without notice. Hopping around in soggy socks, muddy shoes and drenched clothes can put a damper on what should be a bright day.Although rain can be incredibly challenging to dress for in a country like Nigeria where summer clothing stay in fashion all-year-long, there are tips for getting that simple, smart rainy day look. Africa’s largest hotel booking portal shares nuggets on dressing stress free during the next downpour.

#1. Keep it sturdy in dark colours 

At this time of the year, wearing white shoes and a trousers may not be the best choice. To stay clean all day, pair darker colours at the bottom with shirts or dresses. Go for black, as it will show little signs of muddy or debris. Long-sleeved outfits and lightweight sweaters in quick-to-dry materials should also be a frequent choice, especially when living in a city like Lagos where the weather turns at the snap of a finger.

#2. Stay dry in longer jackets

Ever been walking in the rain and seen a car splatter water on everyone using the side walk? Upsetting right? Exactly! While the umbrella can fend some of the rain away, it can’t cover everything, so try a jacket for full body protection. Since classic trench coats are not popular in Nigeria, a trendy mid-thigh jacket will shield the body just fine.

#3. Wear comfortable boots

Traditional rain boots can look a little awkward on the streets of Nigeria especially as rubber does not breathe as well as other materials such as leather and can leave your feet feeling smelly. However, it helps to stick to covered shoe-styles that are short and sleek to keep the feet out of puddles and dry.

#4. Carry the right accessories

If well selected, accessories can be a lifesaver on a wet day. Trade in soft leather handbags for an all-weather nylon-based satchels, invest in a strong umbrella and tone-down the number of metal jewelry to prevent them from rusting quickly.
