Howdy howdy! Let me start by saying, I finally finallyyyy settled in my new home. I anticipated it was going to be super duper crazy moving but not as crazy as it was considering how unpredictable the rains we’re. I’ve always been a huge fan of organizing spaces, but this time round, I probably was more exhausted and drained than I enjoyed putting things together. Getting rid of all the clutter was just way too hectic but again, my OCD levels do not embrace assistance in this department so I’d rather take 100 days organising but have it done right. Anyways, glad to have that done and dusted. Well, in today’s post, it’s all about going unusually bold with lipstick! And hey, happy FriYAY! 🙂
I’ve always been quite adamant about trying new lipsticks outside of the shades I’m used to. My lippie collection is usually comprised of soft pink shades, different shades of red, nudes and purple(s) but deep dark colors, nope! Never owned one that I remember. I’ve always been super shy to wear dark lippies cause I thought i’d look like a hot mess in these Nairobi streets. So when I was doing my shoot at Veejay Studios of some lippies I’ll be reviewing soon here, he had me try this out and I was SOLD. Like damn!!! I absolutely fell in love with the shade. Also, I believe the secret to looking super bomb in dark lippies, is definitely having a great facebeat.
I’m not sure how one would look in a dark lippie with no makeup on. It doesn’t have to be as extra. It can be as simple as just using your favorite foundation and patting some powder on and of course making sure your eyebrows are laid out well. I suggest the use of a nude eyeshadow and have a simple hair do. Don’t go dramatic with your hair or eyeshadow/eyeliner. The dark lippie is dramatic enough. You don’t want to go out looking like a clown. 🙂
Oh btw, Isn’t this peplum top super cute? Just crossing fingers I still fit in it in the years to come. I got it custom made by House of Fatasha Ingrid and this was off the fabric that was left from my OLX SOMA dress. It goes with almost any denim color but I opted for black denim here to make it look more chic but still look simple. Plus you can never go wrong with black. I’m finding custom making clothes a cheaper option these days by the way. It also allows you to explore different styles.
Also, I’m a huge fan of Zuda neckpieces and earrings so I definitely recommend them any day ESPECIALLY because they are made from brass. If you have sensitive ear-lobes, her jewelry is a good fit for you. Featured here is the most gorgeous and simple neck piece that I got from Zuda. It was actually a gift! Oh my, I love gifts. Who doesn’t? Especially if it’s anything to do with fashion or beauty 🤷♀️🤷♀️ and with that said, how about a collab with Zuda to giveaway some jewellery to one of my followers? Sounds good yah? 🙂
