Work! Adaku's Makeover

Paris,  August 2011.


When Adaku, my fashonista friend of ThirdWorldProfashional came to Paris this summer, I absolutely had to give her a makeover. Not one to shy away from a little color, she asked for a "peacock look", here is what we came up with...



Face:
Adaku is wearing Mat velvet+ liquid foundation in 75 from Makeup Forever, True color stick foundation in Carob from Black Opal and Michel Deruelle (Maqpro)  cream pigment in No.2004 (contour). Her foundation is set with Deluxe finishing powder in Dark & Neutral light from Black Opal, Face contour in Dark from Sleek and Mineralize blush in Loverush from Mac.

Eyes:
Brows filled with brow pencil in No 3 from Makeup Forever, Black opal stick foundation in Truly topaz on her brow bone set with D.S 463 eyeshadow from Inglot.

On her lids, Eyeshadow primer potion in Sin from Urban decay, in her inner & outer corners No.92 eyeshadow, in the middle No. 167 eye shadows both from Makeup Forever and in her crease Kush eyeshadow from Urban decay (book of shadows III).



I lined her upper eyelid with MaqPro liquid eyeliner in black, waterline with Bobby brown long lasting gel liner in Black ink and her lower lash line with No. 92 eye shadow from Makeup Forever. Adaku is wearing Eldora eye lashes in B 155.


Lips:
Daks started out with a "go big or go home" lip; Strumpet lip tar from OCC lined with Rouge artist intense lip stick in  No.49 and covered with Fascinating lip loss on No.11 from Makeup Forever.
Then we changed it for a more "wearable" lip; True color lipstick on Fawn from Sleek makeup.

NOTD: Fairy Teal


Sally Hansen Complete Salon manicure

They say…
"All 5 Steps of a Manicure in 1 Bottle
Sally knows you’re busy. So skip the salon, but get the results. With patented Vita-Care Technology for advanced wear, more shine, and nourishing care. Dare to compare to your favorite salon brand. Available in 42 shades."



Verdict:
Sally Hansen's Fairy Teal is a lovely shimmer free teal shade from the Complete Salon manicure range. Of the many shades of green i have tried lately, this one is my favorite (so far ;-). 
The nail polish spreads evenly and although I'm wearing 2 coats in the pictures above, you get really good even coverage with just 1 coat.
It comes with a flat, wide applicator brush that helps reduce application time.
Unfotunately, I wore this on acrylic nails so I cannot comment on the wear (which is always longer with false nails) or the nourishing care. It did have a nice shine to it though ;-)


TTFN!

Product Review: Kiko Definition Waterproof Eyeliner


They say
Liquid eyeliner with a waterproof formula.

The creamy texture slightly increases the ease of application and makes it suitable to any user, from the more experienced to less experienced.
The formula guarantees a unique colorful vinyl effect.
 Translated from the Kiko website

Product & Performance
Kiko Definition waterproof eyeliner is metallic liquid eyeliner. It has a thick consistency similar to nail polish and glides on smoothly. Once dry- and it dries pretty quickly, it’s absolutely budge proof!
I got it in 04- Electric blue, a bright metallic shade of blue. On my chocolate skin it appears slightly darker than it looks in the bottle, but I still love it.
 I wore this eyeliner for a 12-hour day, and at the end of which it looked just as it had when I first put it on.


Price
Kiko Definition waterproof eyeliner retails for 5,90 € for 4.5ml of product. This price ranks it among the more affordable colored eyeliners on the market and as make it a good dupe for the Makeup forever Aqua liners that retail for 19.50 €.
Packaging
Kiko Definition waterproof eyeliner comes in a cylindrical bottle with a thin brush applicator.
I personally prefer brush applicators; I feel like they give me more freedom but they might not be very beginner friendly.



Purchasing
I got mine at a Kiko store in Rome during my short vacation there in June. They have stores around Europe and an online store but unfortunately they do not ship internationally.  Click HERE for the list of Kiko stores.

Overview
Great product! Bright vibrant colors that stay put all day. For the price I think it’s definitely worth the money. The down side of its long lasting stay however, is taking it off at the end of the day. You will need a really good eye makeup remover to get it off; just washing your face does not cut it (trust me!).

NOTD: Out Of My Mind


Not really it’s just the name of this shade of nail polish from Essence :-)


Out of my mind is a shimmery turquoise shade from Essence with gold notes.
In the pictures above, I'm wearing two coats and as you can tell I only got sheer coverage. I’m wearing this polish over sparkly nail art and the polish was unable to cover it.  That said, I still like this shade, I think it looks nice against my chocolate skin ;-)

It comes in a 5 ml bottle and retails for 1.95 Euros. Little content + cheap price = great for edgy shades you want to try out but will not wear often. 
The bush is a little flatter and wider than your vintage nail polish brush; I like this as it saves application time. 

I got mine in a OVS store in Rome, they are available from a wide range of retailers, check their store locator for more details.

Introducing One Young World Nigeria (OYWON)




One Young World Nigeria (OYWON) is an initiative of Nigerian delegates that attended the One Young World global summit in February 2010. Promoted by young, intelligent and forward thinking individuals who wish to commit a portion of their very busy lives to addressing some of the critical issues faced by Nigeria’s present generation, the group’s focus is addressing social injustice by redefining erstwhile existing social patterns.
OYWON Members
Adopt a Library Project 
In promoting the idea of “less talk and more action” the group will be kicking off with the “Adopt a Library Project” which focuses on rehabilitating dilapidated libraries in public secondary schools. Activities for the project can be grouped into 3 key phases: collection of books and sourcing for other resource materials i.e. chairs, tables and shelves; refurbishment of the libraries; and lastly, facilitation of “adoption” of refurbished libraries by private institutions/individuals. It is the groups’ hope that the project would eventually realize the following objectives:
·       Re-introduce a reading culture amongst youths in Nigeria
·       Support poverty alleviation through donations of reference materials to under-stocked libraries
·       Support upgrade of the educational system in Nigeria
·       Set an example to Nigerians on using simple measures to solve complex issues
·       Re-orientate Nigerians to be accountable for the dilapidating educational system
·       Support the governments initiative for public-private partnership
·       Awaken consciousness amongst youths to “talk less and do more”
·       Engage EVERYONE on future OYWON projects



Ilado Community Secondary School has been selected as a pilot for the project after which other public secondary schools would be enjoined on the platform. In addition, with access to sufficient reading materials and a conducive study environment, the group aspires to foster educational activities that would promote a drive for cultivating a culture for knowledge amongst Nigerian students. 
The Ilado Community College "Adopt a library project" is set to take place on the 20th of August 2011.


Get involved...
While additional information on getting involved in the “Adopt a Library Project” can be found through the following social media sites: www.facebook.com/oywon; www.oneyoungworldnigeria.com and @oywon on twitter, OYWON welcomes suggestions, insight and partnerships for successful implementation of its projects and achievements of its desired objectives.

Please share this post with friends and family who may be interested in joining OYWON, supporting them or simply spreading the word.

XOXO!

NOTD: Pearl Leaf Nail Art






For these nails I used Clear Stiletto nail tips from So Nails, large glitter in Pearl Leaf from Le Chat nails, iriesierend crystals from Abc nail store, body glitter from Icingpink acrylic powder and acrylic liquid from Star nails.
L-R Abc nails tore Crystals, Icing body glitter and Abc 
Tip: Do not embed crystals in acrylic as this makes them loose their shine. Instead stick them on the surface of the nail. The end result will not be flat but you won't loose the beauty of the crystals. I learnt the hard way so you don't have to :-)

First I stuck the tips on, cut and shaped them. Then I stuck the crystals on with nail glue and applied the glitter to the middle of my nail tips using acrylic powder and liquid to hold them in place.
After the design was done I covered my entire nail with acrylic powder and liquid.
File to shape and buff to a shine...
I don't like this nail design, I'll probably paint over them soon. The design looked so much better in my head LOL. What do you think?

TTFN!
