Another Christmas inspiration

Compliments guys!

I was merry all through December; I hope you were. I guess my positive, high spirit earned me some good returns because my creativity was heightened during the Christmas holiday so I got to try different makeup each day.

For this look, I played with red and green shadows.

Product roll call:

Flori Roberts foundation and powder
Flori Roberts concealer ‘earth’
Grimas cream shadow in two shades of red
Coastal scents 88 eyeshadow palette
Zaron blush
Flori roberts orange lipstick


I had fun each day with makeup. How did you spend your Christmas holiday?


Save time, apply makeup in 5 minutes!

This post is for busy women who want to look good but in five minutes. This makeup technique saves time because it is basic, simple and sensible in the sense that limited makeup supplies are used. This technique works because I used multifunction makeup products.

Here is how my makeup purse now looks like:


Mary Kay Timewise matte foundation for oily skin provides medium coverage and a matte, flawless finish that controls shine and oil for hours. With this, you don’t even need a foundation primer. When this liquid foundation dries, it mattifies like pressed powder so you do not need pressed powder.

Mary Kay cranberry cream blush is great for the cheeks, eyes and lips. So this product is a blush, eyeshadow and lipstick – 3-in -1 makeup.

For lipstick, I carry a gloss or matte lipstick because they last longer. For this makeup, I used Flori Roberts orange lipstick and black magic eyeliner on my eyes. See my result


Your turn: share with me how you manage to look good under stress.


Oh yes, beauty therapy is good mood uplifter

Ok, so you thought this was an exaggeration? Beauty therapy does wonders for our mood and self confidence. You heard me;a good beauty therapy session is a great way to uplift one’s mood, which in turn, improves our self confidence.

Stress is all around us; that is the bane of modern living. I have been under stress for months now. I am still nursing a baby, I have to run a home and a business – without complaining. And yes, homework to assist my older daughter with! You do know how difficult it is to look good under stress and how makeup on the go becomes your habit? Before you know what, you are ditching makeup, and turning to plain Jane to keep up with your busy life. This happened to me and not only that, I was starting to feel my self confidence shaky. So this past weekend, I dedicated it to me. I went to my favorite salon, got my hair done, received a refreshing pedicure and foot massage; got myself made up. I felt so relaxed and rested that as I rose to my feet, I felt my mood lighten and because I felt so good about myself, I felt my self confidence return to me again.

So I made a promise to myself – not matter how stressed I am or how much my baby son screams, I would get makeup on my face before I leave the house! Period!

To achieve this, I keep my makeup simple, basic and apply multifunctional makeup products. You should try it.
