Wake Up to Make Up

Hi Guys!

I wouldn't have described myself as a makeup person, but I recently started following some makeup/beauty blogs and they've opened my eyes to the wonderful world of makeup.

So yesterday I took my lazy self out of the house in search of some much needed additions to my makeup bag. I needed 4 goodies from the sleek range; the brow kit, the face contour kit, true color lipstick in "naked" and the "oh so special" eyeshadow palette. I found NONE! Not one of these things are available in any sleek store in Lagos. It was heartbreaking. However, I got some things that I didn't know I needed, but I apparently did. LOL. Or maybe the salespeople are just really good at their jobs :(

Here are some pictures of the things I got.

I got the superior cover pressed powder in "Biscuit". I've been looking for an everyday powder for a while now, my Mac studio fix is a tad too heavy for this purpose, but this is perfection!

Powder Brush and Angled Eyebrow Filler for the brow kit that I didn't find :(


I got Maybelline eyeshadow in "chocolate mousse" (left) and "bronze glitz" (right).

Sleek twist up pencil in "chestnut" for lining my lips when I wear ruby woo, Jordana twist up pencils in "Seagreen" and "Denim blue" for some waterline glam, and sleek kohl eyeliner in black.


I've used elf's eyelid primer for two days now, and it's like magic...keeps the eyeshadow intact and it's too cheap!!!!!!

This blush is by casabella and it's "sunkist'. I had actually picked sleek's "Sahara" but the saleswoman asked me to take this instead if I was going for a neutral color. I was a bit skeptical at first, I mean it looks terribly orange, but the second saleswoman recommended it too. Who was I to refuse? It's as awesome as they said. Honest.

I'm definitely going to be having fun trying to look more like a lady :)
