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.

I turned 35 on the 12th of March and to say that I am thankful for the gift of life is an understatement.  To celebrate the fabulous Moi I had a photoshoot with the Uber talented Lakin Ogunbanwo. My self love is beyond infinity and I ALWAYS welcome any opportunity to play dress up.                                          

The looks include this amazing white dress from Victoria Beckham and shoes from Proenza Schouler and this crisp white shirt from my hubby’s closet.
