Getting my makeup done is one of the fun parts of preparing for any event. I’m very particular about how I want to look at all times so my makeup artists have to be extremely patient and pay attention to detail. 

I love working with Joyce Jacob because she takes her time with prepping the skin to perfection. This is an important step for me, as often times I go easy on the eyes and lips. Hence, having that AKD glow is very key. (Wink)

A simple trick to achieving that seamless glow I learned from Joyce is blending your contour, highlight and blush together. It’s the best way to achieve a more natural glow.

Another part of getting dolled up I love is applying false lashes. This is one way to take your look some notches higher. Lashes can transform your look from simple to fierce, and from plain to very sultry.



When it comes to lipsticks, I usually stick to my nudes and earthy tones; but lately, ‘Lime Crime’ has me loving a variety of shades especially Metallics. 

The Velvetine collection has such an enchanting array of colours, it’s difficult for a girl not to find her favourite. 

The colours are very unique, vibrant and richly pigmented. I especially love the shade ‘Beetle’ because of its brown hue and subtle glow.

‘Lime Crime’ lip-stains dry up completely matte, stay on for hours and they don’t dry out my lips like other lip-stains.

I’m hooked on these lipsticks and what’s really cool, is that ‘Lime Crime’ ships directly to Nigeria so shopping for them, is really easy.

Love Always
