dark circles

Dark circles make you look stressed and tired not to mention how ageing it can be!

Dark circles are commonly on the surface as a result of lack of adequate sleep but in most cases it’s simple; it could just be the ageing process and because the areas/skin around the eyes are usually delicate they get hit first.

Circles under the eyes give you a generally ‘stressed out’ look, makes you look like you’re desperately craving sleep and that’s not in the least attractive.

Why they happen?

They can be hereditary, may be a sign of an underlying health issue (reason if you tick all the healthy buttons then it’s time to get expert help), due to not-so-good lifestyle habits- consuming too much salty foods, smoking, alcohol, sleep deprivation of course, lack of exercise, stress and the list goes on. It can also be as a result of ageing (because that happens in normal humans).

While they are usually nothing to lose sleep about they shouldn’t at the same time be ignored so if you’re sure you get enough sleep and your lifestyle habits are not in the least shabby then of course, it’s time to deal with them! Either by getting cooling pads or creams for this or see a dermatologist!

Before then home remedies work just perfect and this one is especially fast and easy to try out.

  • Get ice cubes- from clean water – out of the freezer and gently place over the area and over the eyes
  • Use a piece of clothing or sleeping mask to hold the ice cubes in place
  • Leave them on for a few minutes every single time
  • Do this often till you get desired results

Ankara

Ankara is a versatile piece no doubt, and it’s the reason you should score it as a top.

Ankara, though quite tricky to pull off is best tried out in styles you are comfortable in. So if you weren’t a fan of the the print before now, ease into them in effortless styles that fit your personality so that way you don’t look out of place in the new styles.

The trick to wearing Ankara as a top is to do the styles that are practical and if daring enough a bit of edge that shows your personality but it shouldn’t drown your figure and the fit should be perfect.

Everyone needs a jacket right, score one the good old jacket way, make it versatile enough to be paired with other staples and if it’s one that goes perfectly with skirts or pants even better. The belted one have a great fit, you wouldn’t go wrong in those.

The nude makeup looks are the bedrock of the society, of course we’re just kidding! But they are really great. Why? They’re incredibly versatile, can work for almost any occasion and pretty much look good on everyone. However, the thing is, they can sometimes be hard to achieve!

But today, we have some nude makeup looks from Nigerian makeup artistry, D’Artiste by Dodos that should get your juices flowing.

Over the years we watched D’Artiste by Dodos and we’ve fallen more and more in love with their skill, and aesthetic. When they create a makeup look, they go for soft, feminine and lush look with a focus on skin.

These 5 looks literally stole our breath away. They personify the beauty and subtle glam that nude looks are known for. Check them out!

Dark chocolate

This look is sure to give anyone a ‘sweet tooth‘. It’s dark, smooth and looks just like skin…but better. The key to getting this look is to perfectly match your foundation and use a concealer that is only about a shade lighter to highlight. Secondly, pick a lip gloss close to your lip shade and sweep black or brown liner over your waterline for some depth.

Ethereal bride

If this look doesn’t stop you in your tracks then we don’t know what will. They enhanced the model’s eternal beauty with gold toned shadows and a luscious glossy lip. And those lashes framed her eyes perfectly. For this look, less is more. Leave each makeup application on the eyes to 2 or 3 swipes and stick with a plain gloss on lined lips.

Glowing Babe

For this look, the goal was amazing skin. D’Artiste by Dodos worked on flawless skin that glows from here to the heavens, and achieved it. The key to achieving this look is literally subtle eyebrows, no shadow or mascara and very light contour and highlight. Their focus was all on the glow. Use a highlighter like Trophy Wife from Fenty Beauty or Yanga Beauty’s Candid Glow to really make your skin pop.

Now, before we let you go, we have one more treat. The first thing to master when it comes to nude looks is perfecting highlighting & contouring. So, here’s the CEO of DArtiste by Dodos and beauty blogger, Dodos Uvieghara showing you how.

We don’t think any other piece of clothing can over take denim as the ultimate all year round staple. Talk about being evergreen!

Denim is a classic piece that everyone can’t seem to get enough of. We don’t know how that came to be but we are fully on the denim bandwagon just like Temi Otedola.

Like everyone else, even though Temi rocks denim all year round, she’s making alterations to her summer handbook to fit the season. The blogger who is currently on vacation has been showing us how best to rock the piece and appropriately for this season.

Among pieces Temi has been mixing up with her denim looks are classic round neck tees, oversized floral shirts, ditsy print shirts, plain hue shirts, candy stripe crop tops, and body suits amongst other dope pieces.

To have a wholesome summer look, Temi enlists accessories like cool eyewear, cute purses and lovely jewelry. All the adjectives we used for the qualification of accessories seem contradicting but hey that’s how the blogger derives her carefully thought ensembles plus who believes in a fashion rule book?

Although Temi does look good all the time, we love her summer vibe differently. Don’t you?
