We all know who this talented black beauty is. Naomi Campbell is one of my favourite fashion models. I love everything about her and she is ageing so gracefully. I can’t believe she is the big 50 already! She could easily pass for a 40 year old! Naomi Campbell is the most recognisable and the most in-demand model in the world today.

Nyadak “Duckie” Thot is an Australian model and is best known as being the face of Fenty Beauty. I came across this black beauty some years ago when the news of blogger sister (Nikkie Perkins) hit the web. Duckie is such a beauty, I am blown away by her stunning features. She is definitely a force to reckon with in the world of modelling and fashion.

Tyra Banks

Whenever I think of Victoria’s Secret, I think of Tyra Banks! This stunning woman is another favourite of mine. I love that she left the modelling world and went on to handle many other projects. She has done very well for herself. Back in the day, I was a huge fan of America’s Next Top Model. Tyra Banks is a force to reckon with on and off the runaway.

Aweng Ade Chuol

She has been doing her thing on the runaways since 1976 and she is still very active working on various projects. I am a huge fan of Iman.

How to get your foundation shade right

Yes, there will be times when you will need a little help when you want you skin to look its best. Foundation is the secret weapon to get you the perfect look especially when your skin needs it the most. But finding the right shade of foundation can be a challenge.

I have mistakenly bought the wrong shade of foundation a few times. I choose a darker shade or a shade several tones lighter than my real colour, leaving my makeup looking a HOT MESS! Which was so embarrassingly.

The right shade gives that natural look and helps the makeup stay on, looking beautiful all day. Here are some handy tips to help you get the right shade of foundation.

 

Swatch 3 shades of foundation on your face

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Where you’re allowed to test the foundation apply 3 shades on foundation starting from your cheek to your jaw line. The idea is to see how well the different shades blends with your natural skin colour. The one closest to your skin colour is your match.

When you are applying the 3 shades of foundation, take care not to blend them into your skin. You need to see how well the foundation suits your skin colour.

 

Test the foundation in natural light

What most people do when choosing their foundation is to make choices based on the lighting in the store. But the truth is that you will not be indoors all the time and so making your choice of foundation based on indoor lighting is the wrong way to go.

If you’re in a store and you’re testing foundation, get close to a window to know exactly how well the foundation works on your skin.

Place the bottle next to your face

Now, it’s not in all cases when you’ll be allowed to apply the foundation directly on your face before buying it. Many shops will not allow you to open the foundation bottle and apply the product directly on your skin. Foundation is usually kept in clear see-through containers. This makes it easy for you to know the exact shade of the foundation.

Where you’re unable to apply the foundation directly on your skin, bring the bottle of foundation close to your face in natural light. This will give you an idea of whether the foundation is a good fit for you.

 

Make use of foundation shade finder apps

Thank goodness for technology! Major cosmetic companies have developed their own nifty apps that will help you know the exact shade of foundation that matches your skin. All you have to do is download the app, take a picture of yourself under natural light and you automatically get the shade that works for you. Cosmetic companies like IMAN have a similar app to this.

Maybelline’s foundation shade finder is on their website and all you need to do is answer a couple of questions and they immediately produce the results that are a perfect match to your skin.

The Style Icon: David Bowie

On Sunday – 10 January, we lost a legend. David Bowie died a peaceful death after a courageous 18 month battle with liver cancer, 2 days after his 69th birthday. His death is a huge loss to all his fans, especially the music and fashion lovers.

David Bowie was an iconic singer, artist, producer, actor and fashion god. He successfully invented his own style and made it look good. He grab fashion ideas from everywhere and put his spin on it. If anyone else wore most of his pieces, they would look stupid, but on Bowie, it was stylish. Guess that is why he is known as a Style Icon, he could get away wearing anything. He was a risk taker, and he was daring. This man had no comfort zone, Before Lady Gaga, there was David Bowie, and no one did flamboyance like him, no one even came close.

David Bowie

I adorned David Bowie’s music, style, confidence, willingness to try new things, and his ‘over the topness’. Sometimes I wish I could just let go and be like that, even if it was for 1 day. David Bowie did that to us, he was like a breath of fresh air, he had no rules, he lived his life on his own terms, and it felt good to watch. While other stars were busy being serious, he was having so much fun producing great music, playing around with his look, and standing out from the rest Guess that is why he was loved by many all over the world.

I am going to miss so much about him, but I believe he has gone to a better place, free from illnesses and worries, and I believe his music and style will continue to live on. My thoughts are with Iman and the rest of your family.

Rest in peace David Bowie.
