Red eyeshadow beauty trendHmm, this trend is very risqué, it is definitely for the audacious ones. The look first made its appearance on the runway but unlike some others that stick to just runways and editorials, this one has found its way to the red carpet ala Cara Delavigne, to TV via Jlo and now unto the stage as Trend setter Solange made her appearance just recently  rocking it. In all cases the lips were kept soft and nude. So what do you think? Would you be trying this? Would we be seeing more of this now? As for me, err… I am not that bold, I mean I am still struggling with regular make up look .

Wore this outfit to go visiting yesterday, I really loved the look so even though I couldnt get a proper shot, managed to snag some with my phone camera. I dont think I could ever get tired of wearing white, I think they are so chic, so easy and never  fails to brighten up ones appearance. I have to run now, do have a nice week all.

As a petite and curvy girl, flared jeans always intimidated me, I always felt that it would make me look even shorter than I am. So I put my on styling cap on 😜 and found a way around it , add an inch or two to the length and wear with a platform  heels for added height and comfort. I love the styling with the jacket, it’s very elegant and clean and grown up, I am all about that grown woman look right now too.

Product Review – Aldi’s Lacura Gentle Face wash Gel

IMG_2597Recently I decided I needed to up my make up game, you know go the whole nine yards and so I dusted my foundation,bought a concealer, contour and high lighting kits basically all that the fancy make up vloggers or youtubbers recommend for starters. The downside of that was that I started breaking out badly, whiteheads on my nose, nothing seemed to help and nope, I never slept with my make up on, I always cleaned it off with make up wipes, washed with Neutrogena wash and toner, followed by a moisturiser. I have used those products for years and its always been good to me but suddenly it just wasnt enough although I did read somewhere that one needs to regularly switch up ones skin care product as they tend to stop working after a while so maybe that was the case with those .IMG_2598

Now, I have always shopped at Aldi but for some reason never paid attention to their skincare brand. On this day I decided to purchase their wipes , I loved it, my face felt supple and hydrated after use so I decided to give their washing gel a trial and boy was that the smartest thing ever? I love that it has no smell, its soapfree and after washing my face feels squeaky clean, within one week of use, the acne was all dried up and gone. I have also observed that throughout the day, my face feels smooth, hydrated and matte.

I would definitely recommend this product, its very cost effective at £1.29, it lasts one quite a while, I use it very generously day and night and a bottle lasts about a month. I would definitely be buying this product again, matter of fact, I have gone ahead and bought two packs already. This product is really that good for my oily and sensitive skin, I cant stop gushing about it. Have you tried any of Aldi skincare products? What are your thoughts?

If you are thinking that I look quite sad in this photos, then, yes you are right . I had just had both my tooth extracted. My cheek were swollen and I really shoulda just gone home, take my pain killers and sleep but instead I met up with my friend who takes my blog post and we took these photos. I had just made my hair the previous day and have been itching to blog on it so :D. I love this hair color, I think it makes styling so easy, I will just throw on all black or blue and black as I did above and let the hair break the monotony, haha!
