FOTD: Nigerian Violet

Saturday, June 18, 2011

A while ago I was asked to do an African look. In case you didn't already know I am Nigerian so I decided to do a Nigerian look ;-)
I hope you like it and were not expecting a "bone-in-nose-spear-griping" type look LOL, because when I think Africa thats not what comes to mind.

This look is really typical, in Nigeria today you would see women dressed like this at parties, weddings and even church (yes we show up in our "Sunday best" ;-)
Characteristics of Nigerian makeup: Matchy matchy eyeshadow (yes ,it must match what you are wearing), and dou color lips (that's a must LOL)
Face:
I'm wearing stick foundation in Truly topaz, Beautiful bronze and Carob, set with Deluxe finishing powder in Neutral light and Dark all from Black Opal, Sleek Face contour kit in Dark and Loverush blush from Mac.
Eyes:
Brows filled with brown brow pencil from Sleek, black Opal foundation in Truly topaz on my brow bone set with Sin eye shadow from the Urban Decay Naked palette.
On my eye lids,  NYX eyeshadow base in W/Pearl, Fred Farrugia eye shadows from the No.17 palette, Retrograde eye shadow from Urban decay and Inglot D.S.494.
I lined my upper eyelid with MaqPro eye liner in black and my waterline with Urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero. The lashes are No34 from Mac with Black opal mascara in Black.




Lips
Lined with MUFE Rouge artiste in No 49 filled with NYX Power and Sleek Highshine lipgloss in Sweet sixteen. 



Hope you like :D
