The talented and beautiful Yemi Alade is the Beauty Muse of the month. I have previously featured Yemi Alade as a Style Icon on Fashion and Style Police a couple of years ago. Apart from her stylish taste in fashion, she also has some pretty facial features, which is why she is a Beauty Muse. For those who do not this beauty, Yemi Alade is is a Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter. Her big break came when she won the Peak Talent Show in 2009. Her hit single a”Johnny” was released in 2014, and her career really took off that the catchy song.
I am a huge fan of Yemi Alade’s music. Her beats are always super catchy and she is also a great dancer. I enjoy watching her music videos, they are always full of amazing moves. This woman is the definition of an African Beauty. Her facial features are stunning and she obviously knows her to care for skin. I have always admired her glowing skin and I am always on the hunt for great skincare products to try. So when I came across an interview with Vogue, where she shared her beauty secrets, I knew I had to blog about it. Here are some skincare products and makeup tips she swears by –
Yemi Alade moisturises her face with some coconut oil after cleansing. The fact that she uses coconut oil doesn’t surprise me at all. This amazing product is known for the great skincare benefits. I have a bottle in my bathroom cabinet and I use it on my hair and skin. Coconut Oil is one of those multitasking oils you just need to have.
“Because I am a performance stage artist, and I dance a lot, the most important thing is the primer,” she says. “It keeps everything in place.” After a full-coverage long-wear foundation is applied, Alade uses two different concealers to highlight her lids, then sculpts her eyes with a contour palette, courtesy of the Nigerian beauty brand Zaron Cosmetics. “The main thing that pushed me to learn how to make myself up is because when I travel around the world, I find that Nigeria is very ahead in terms of makeup skills,” she explains. “The Nigerian makeup artists know exactly what they’re doing.”
