|This for sure is the beauty gurus on YT.Simple black smoky eye and they use five different eyeshadow palletes 😓😓😓😓.|
Make up is one of those things that makes me so very happy.If it was up-to me and time wasn't an issue I would wear a full face of make-up every morning.
Good make-up doesn't have to break the bank especially if you are a beginner.Why waste money on high end foundation or eyeshadow palettes when you aren't too sure how to even use them.The thing with make up I have learnt is practise makes perfect.Practice can waste a lot of make up,now imagine if one was to practise using high end products!!
If you are looking to grow you stash of make up the sales this Black Friday ' season' might just be your answer. Below are very good make up products that have served me well and are all affordable.
My absolute favourite face product is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless pressed powder.It makes you look like you put in a lot of work on your face yet the only thing you did after moisturizing is apply the powder.It normally goes for KES 1400 and will last you a long time,I have only used 1 and half of them this whole year. Keep an eye out for them during this sale season and maybe grab two.
We all know the eyes are the windows to the soul.They therefore must be taken care of particularly well.Here are some of my favourite eye products that I would highly recommend.
Maybelline has some of the best mascaras.These two I love the most.The Makeup Lash Sensational Washable Mascara and the Push Up Angel Mascara. These two mascaras are bomb.com,they make your lashes so pretty and full.Sometimes I get asked if I am wearing lashes 😉😉. If you are looking for something that will make you lashes stand out definetly check out these. However if you only want to get one,try the Makeup Lash Sensational Mascara and you will not be disappointed.It comes with the most excellent wand,it's so very easy to use and the results are the best.
The first make-up product I ever used were kajals.My mum had given the impression that when you dress up to go somewhere,you had to wear perfume and a kajal.I have owned many different kajals and have over the years learnt which ones work best for me.Some of my favourite include;
Hashmi Kajal Eye Pencil
This kajal work really well.Only thing though is, I think I have been getting the mwitu ones.I normally purchase mine from Isli and there is absolutely no consistency. One tube works great and then you get another and it's disappointing.If you are looking for an inexpensive one this is your best bet as it goes for KES 150 just pray that you get a good quality one 😊 or order online then you will be sure what you get is the original.
Maybelline's Colossal Kajal Extra Black and Crayon Khol Colossal Kajal Black
These kajals are decent and do a good job in tight lining your eyes.I love the Crayon Khol more because it glides on smoothly when compared to the Colossal Kajal Extra Black.They both last really long,stay put the whole day,do not smudge and have good colour pay off.
I am going through this phase where I am OBSESSED with eyeshadow pallettes.I haven't gotten any from Jumia but I got this 120 colors popfeel eye shadow palette from Kilimall and I cannot wait to try all the colorful eye looks it has to offer.
When it comes to lips I believe the more affordable the better.Jumia has loads of lip products,here are some that I got from Jumia and have been loving.
L.A Colors-Copper Glaze
Its a beautiful nude that is pinkish brown.It's a shade that can be worn everyday or even for a night out/special occasions especially if one is wearing a dramatic eye look.It now is on sale and goes for only KES 180 which is such a bargain.
Maybelline-Vivid Matte Liquid in the shade Coffee Buzz
I got this thinking that it was a brown liquid lipstick and will be my 'going to work' lip colour.Turns out it's oxblood red.It becomes a true red as the day progresses because of all the food and water one drinks 😀😀. However it is very subtle and still is an excellent everyday lip colour.I got it at 50% off and was so so so happy.
You might have all the make up in the world but without the right application tools you might not be able to get the best out of them.It's good to invest in good quality brushes as they will last long and will have you looking flawless at all times.I have quite a number of brushes from Jumia but my absolute favourite are these two; the eleven pieces set and these eyeshadow brushes.
Are you enjoying the sales so far? I honestly feel that last year's were better.It's still to early to tell,things might get better.
