Beauty Muse – Yvonne Okoro

Hey, Beauties! Welcome to the lovely month of September. It is back to school for us here this week and I am excited. To be honest, we all are. It has been a long break from school with homeschooling and summer break thrown into the mix. Going back to school is just what we need. Today, I am featuring this stunning black beauty. If you are into Nollywood and Ghollywood, you would know Yvonne Okoro.

Beauty Muse – Yvonne Okoro

The lovely Yvonne Okoro is the Beauty Muse for September 2020. This stunning young woman is a Ghanaian-Nigerian actress. I have seen many of her movies and I love them,. She is a terrific actress and her beauty is breathtaking. Yvonne Okoro has a gorgeous ebony complexion and it just glows. You can easily spot her wearing little or no makeup, which is refreshing. I love how natural she looks. Her makeup usually highlights her amazing features, instead of changing them completely like the look many celebrities go for. I would love to be a fly on her wall and watch her get her makeup done. I am sure I would learn many new tips.

The picture of Okoro here is so beautiful. She looks like an African Barbie Doll! I love her eye makeup, the shades work great for her skin tone. The lipstick she is wearing is also natural and very pretty. She is definitely a pro when it comes to nailing the natural makeup look. I love it. The hair also looks amazing on her.

Beauty Muse – Beverly Naya

Hey Beauties! I can’t believe it is August already. How did July end so quickly? Where is the year going? In other news, the stunning Beverly Naya is the beauty muse for August on Fashion and Style Police. The talented British-Nigerian actress has been on my radar for some time now. I love watching her movies; she is a great actress and she does a fantastic job interpreting her roles. This beauty recently produced a documentary on Netflix titled “Skin.” The documentary explores colourism which is the discrimination of people based on their skin shades. I am looking forward to watching “Skin” at some point this weekend. It has been on my list of what to watch for some weeks now.

Colourism is a big issue in Africa, especially in Nigeria. Many men and women feel they have to lighten their skin to look beautiful. Most of them grow up hating their dark skin tone and end up going down the skin bleaching route to look lighter. I am happy to see more and more awareness is being raised about colourism. It is usually buried underneath racism, that people forget it is a huge problem in the African and Asian communities.

Back to the beautiful Beverly Nada, I think she has amazing skin. Her skin glows every time I see her. I am also a huge fan of her makeup. It was always so flawless.

Here are some excerpts from an interview she had with Pulse some months ago –

Her skincare routine

My skincare routine is quite simple. I just literally drink lots of water and lots of fruit as well, specifically oranges because they have a high level of citrus.

I guess I need to eat some more oranges. With skincare, the simpler they are, the better the results usually.

“It’s very good for the skin if you want to detox. I use cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil. I wash and cleanse my face twice a day, it’s very important.”

Washing and cleansing the face twice a day is really important. I love using coconut oil as well. It is such a great multitasking product.

Beauty Muse: Yemi Alade

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 –

Coconut Oil

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.”
