Going out for me is not a re-occurrence thing due to my busy schedule with my kids, however, when I do go out, I make it my duty to look and feel my best as well as presentable by ensuring my hair and makeup is making a statement. We all know makeup doesn’t make a person. Though I love the way I look and my imperfections with or without makeup; I believe makeup helps accentuates my natural beauty.
I’m not a professional makeup artist or even trained as one, just a woman who loves to experiment with the diverse amount of products to see which one best compliments me.
Below is my recent makeup look for a date with friends. The look I was going for is simple but moderately striking looking eyes with neutral or nude lip colour.
