Genevieve Nnaji Makeup (2015 AMCVA Awards)

I loved the look created by Flawless Faces by Jane on Genevieve Nnaji during the 2015 AMCVA awards. Her eye makeup looked like a dark smoky eye that softened from the outer corner of her eyes to the inner corner. Her lips were subtle and I love how bright her entire face looked to compliment her mustard dress.

So I saved this image from and I used it to replicate the look on myself.


I adjusted it a bit to suit the frame of my face and this is the finished look placed side by side to an image from Flawless Faces by Jane.

Sunday Best

Hey everyone 🙂

I did this look on a Sunday before heading out to church. I wanted to complement the peachy orange color of my dress. I wanted bold lips so the eye makeup had to be subtle. I used the Laura Geller eye shadow palette in Golden Sunset. The texture of the eyeshadow is lovely and it slides onto the eye lid when applied.

You can easily learn how to achieve this look by watching the video tutorial below.


Here is a list of the products used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Laura Geller – creme glaze trio (Golden Sunset)
NYX – Ultimate Beauty Box

Bold ‘n’ Beautiful

Welcome back 😀

I was inspired to do this makeup from a picture I saw of Denise Vasi’s makeup a while back. I didn’t save the link at the time but if you google Denise Vasi, you might be able to find a similar look.

However the eye makeup is fun and bright. I received compliments all day long and I loved it. The eye makeup has an ombre effect which occurs when colors are over-lapped. I have made a video tutorial on YouTube.

Watch the video below and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos.

Brown Smokey Look

Brown smokey eye makeup is very popular because it suits all eye colors. I paired this with nude lip makeup. This look may be too dramatic for some and may be worn only at night. I can wear this look in the night or during the day. The steps are straight forward and most stores carry different brands that have the colors I used in their palette. I usually don’t include the step where I apply eyelashes. I do this to save time. I plan to make a separate video that will show how I apply false eyelashes.

Here are the products used:
NYX Gel liner & Smudger (Base) – Glas02(brown), Glas03(dark brown)
MaryKay Mineral Eye Color – Cinnabar, Truffle, Coal, Silky Caramel
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow – I’m getting sunburned
Wet n Wild Creme Liner
NYX retractable eyeliner ( water proof) – MPE02 Black
Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color – Golden Copper
CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipliner – Sublime 200
ELF Matte Jumbo Pencil (Lipstick) – Coral
No.7 High Shine Lipgloss – Glaze
Jordana Lipgloss – 107 FYI

Thank you

Feel the Teal

Applying a teal eyeliner on the bottom lid can make the eyes look brighter. It can also make the wearer look younger because it is a fun shade of color. This look is very simple. I used minimal eyeshadow on the top lid and defined the top lid with black gel liner. Finally, I applied a teal/turquoise liner to the bottom lid.  I hope you enjoy watching the video because I enjoyed making this look.

Eye Brow Tutorial

Hey Buddies 🙂

Brows help to frame the face. Imagine your face with no eye brows. Weird…right? There are many products in the market ranging from powders, and wax, and to liquids. In my tutorial, I keep it simple. I don’t apply any fancy gradient effect to my brows. I simply draw and diffuse the color I add.

I used the Wet n Wild Brow & Eye liner in Dark Brown – 652 and an angled brush. I only use this pencil or the equivalent when I am in a hurry.

The concealer used is the IMAN second to none cover cream in Clay Medium

Foundation Tutorial

Hey Buddies!

Makeup can make or break a look. Proper foundation application can make you look flawless, ashy or sun burnt. My foundation application is not perfect but it is good enough for me. I love makeup and I have tried so many methods of applying my foundation. I am constantly changing my method of applying foundation. I have made a video with my current method of applying  foundation.
