    Well,today’s post is about my sleek curacao palette. Its a limited edition of the Caribbean collection. This baby is super bright,colorful and quite pigmented! ’nuff said let the pictures do the talking.

  The packaging looks bright and colorful wait till you meet the eye shadows. Sleek eye shadows as usual are presented in a sleeky black palette of 12 eye shadow pigments a dual end applicator and a compact mirror.

   The mineral based eye shadows were named after cocktails.

To the Woman Behind Me in Line at the Grocery Store

a good read and quite touching…..

Sunshine & Daisies

Dear woman behind me in line at the grocery store,

You don’t know me. You have no clue what my life has been like since October 1, 2013. You have no clue that my family has gone through the wringer. You have no clue that we have faced unbelievable hardship. You have no clue we have been humiliated, humbled, destitute.
You have no clue I have cried more days than not; that I fight against bitterness taking control of my heart. You have no clue that my husband’s pride was shattered. You have no clue my kids have had the worries of an adult on their shoulders. You have no clue their innocence was snatched from them for no good reason. You know none of this.

What you do know is I tried to buy my kids some food and that the EBT machine was down so I couldn’t buy…

BASIC SKIN CARE ROUTINE

  

image

   Its a very hot afternoon here and I’m wondering if this is how it is everywhere or its just this house and to cap it all these PHCN people sabi hold light hen!The noises of gen sets booming all around no still help matter,naija my country.
      Hmn,my people,good afternoon. Its still a beautiful day out there,isn’t it?In our day-day activites (from jumping okada,to pushing passati….. in sound sultan’s voice),our skin come in contact with the harsh weather,impurities that clogs/blocks our pores(tiny holes in the skin) just to mention but a few. Amidst the hullabaloo most of us can’t afford the time of visiting a spa…well,i mean people like me. My skin care regimen used to be a 2/10,yea….i was that carefree. All i did then was bathe,moisturizing my skin was usually a night mare!,I sweat a lot!so most times i skip body creams,and that was it. Now I’m wiser,I’ve realized my body is a reflection of who i am especially my skin so i had better start taking care of it like it ought to be…After extensive reading et all i developed my personal skin care routine (what works for me might not work for you vice-versa),so i thought to share. Here they are below;

1. Determine your skin type. Basically there are 5 skin types with sub-categories.(I’ll just name the basic skin types and explain further in subsequent posts)
a. Dry skin
b. Oily skin
c. Normal skin
d. Combination skin
e. Sensitive skin.

image

2.Cleansing. The first and crucial step to any daily skin care routine. Now you would at this point determine what works well for your skin type.

3. Masks.

image

you prolly thought this..lol!but no!I   meant this:

image

They’re treatment applied to a dry cleansed face for a period of time and then removed. It could be clay-like,gel-like or sheet masks. Areas of the eyes and mouth should be left out in the application.
i. It absorb excess oil and dirt from the skin
ii. It hydrates the skin and help discourage wrinkles
iii. It helps to treat uneven skin tone

image

4. Exfoliants. They help to remove dead skin cells from the body leaving your skin fresh,shiny and glowy. They also unclog pores and discourage acne.

image

5. Toning. Umn,i don’t mean bleaching o. Toner is used after cleansing the skin to freshen it up,it removes the traces of cleanser,masks,and makeup from the skin.

image

6.Moisturizing. All skin types needs this. Be it oily,normal,sensitive. It prevents the skin from flaking and drying. The last but not the least:

image

7. Protecting. Protecting our skin from the harsh rays of sun is another crucial step in a skin care regimen.

image

The sun can cause sun burn (black skin too!),skin dryness,uneven skin tone,reduce the skin’s elasticity,encourages sagging of the skin,wrinkles,and yes!skin cancer!!.

    I hope this post helps some one out there. Thanks for your time.
