So I finally got my face beat!! I am super super elated as a result. Make-up  has been a journey of self discovery. I only started applying things in my first year of campus. When it comes to it, I am very subtle … and by subtle I mean just highlighting my eyes, having some powder on because I have combination skin and finally slapping some color on my lips. Lately, however, there’s been a hunch to try on some bold looks.

I have never tried full on make up so when a childhood friend of mine (Janet Kamau) reached out to me for a collaboration on a shoot as my make-up artist, I was all game. I mean who would say no to being pampered considering this would the second time I get full on make up on my skin? It was perfect timing as I was looking for a makeup artist for my style shoots. While she was working her magic on my face, I was like an inquisitive child making sure to absorb all the knowledge I could.

I took a glimpse at the mirror, and came short of words! My jaw dropped which was quickly followed by an out pour of praise adjectives that came to mind. I honestly used to be one of those people who would go on like ‘a lady doesn’t really need make-up to look good.’ After this  experience, I stand corrected. I now get it. Its solely about what it does to your confidence and personality. You feel great when you know you look great. You feel empowered. I honestly felt like I could achieve anything handed to me for the day.

I will be sharing with you the full look on another post but in the meantime enjoy these shots. What are your thoughts on make-up? Would love to hear from you so do leave a comment below. Stay blessed!
