*Affiliate Links.

 

Some weeks ago, I wrote a how to get your makeup to last all day. I couldn’t fit in all the products I wanted to into that post, so I decided to write-up a part 2. In the previous post, I mentioned how important it is to use quality makeup products in the right order. We covered Primer, Foundation, Concealer and Face Powder (in that order) so go have a read to find the beauty products I recommended.

Now we are going to talk about some other amazing products that would help your makeup last all day long –

 

Eyebrow Shake Filling Powder

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for years, you may have read the rise and fall of the eyebrow. It covers the many eras of the eyebrows and how making them up has changed. You may even find your eyebrows on there. I use the Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder. It works great for my eyebrows. They come in various shades – soft black, medium brown, light brown and dark brown.

This 3 in 1 eyebrow makeup fill, defines and lines the eyebrows. I never have to top my brows up when I apply this powder.

 

 

Eyeliner

When it comes to eyeliners, I recommend the Duo Kajal + Eyeliner by Lola. I love the fact that it is a 2 in 1 product. The Kajal lines the eyes beautifully and the eyeliner works great too! It stays on for ages which is amazing. No need for top ups at all.

 

 

Mascara

I love paying attention to the mascaras I use. Since I have naturally long lashes and I love enhancing them with a great mascara. I love the Rimmel London New Volume Shake Mascara a lot. It gives my eyelashes the right volume from root to tip. I use it quite regularly and it stays on all day. Plus it is also waterproof.

The Rimmel London Scandaleyes is another great mascara too! It lasts and lasts thanks to the shake technology and it stays on for hours too! If you are after quality and affordable mascaras, you need to check out these 2.

 

 

Eyeshadow

Eyeshadows are a must for me when it comes to makeup. I have loads but will recommend this Sleek Eyeshadow Palette. There are a few of them in my makeup drawers and they are really long-lasting with pretty different shades. They stay on all day. I usually have to wipe them off with my makeup remover. The palettes are also very affordable which is a plus.

 

 

Lip Primer

In other for your lipstick to stay put, you need to apply a Lip Primer before your lipstick. I use MAC Prep + Prime Lip Base and I have done so for many years.  It does exactly what it says on the pack. It prepares my lips and keeps my lipstick on all day.

 

 

Lipsticks

I love having various shades of lipsticks because the shade I put on depends on my mood. There are so many lipsticks in my makeup drawers thanks to PR samples. Most of them are really good but I will recommend MAC Ruby Woo for those who like the bold red matte look. It is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks. I never get tired of wearing it.

 

Lip Pencils

Lip Pencils are important when it comes to making sure your makeup stays on all day. I love my  MAC Lip Pencil. It looks amazing with most of my lipsticks and it lines my lips beautifully.

 

Highlighter

 

I am kind of new to Highlighters. I started experimenting with them a few years ago and I am now hooked on the Sleek Highlighting Palette. It is so good. This palette suits all skin tones. The brand does not test on animals and the shades are beautiful.

 

Finishing Spray

There are a couple of Finishing Sprays in the beauty industry. I have used many of them and most are great. One of them is this Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Go. It is a 2 in 1 product – Primer and Setting Spray. It keeps the makeup in place for up to 8 hours.

 

These makeup products are all amazing. They help my makeup stay on for as long as I need it too and they are all quite affordable. Have you used any of them?

OOTD: A Textured Dress & A Biker Jacket

Zebra Print Dress Image

 

So this week’s outfit is featuring some new wardrobe additions, starting with this zebra print textured dress. I found this beauty online, on sale, while doing some ‘window online shopping’, and I knew I had to have it. I am so into dresses at the moment, I find myself wanting to buy them a lot lately for a weird reason. Guess a girl can never have too many dresses, right?

The only issue I have with this dress is, it is a dry clean only piece. I find dry clean only pieces so expensive to own, and I fortunately and unfortunately now have quite a few of them now, so I won’t be buying anymore. Apart from the fact that this dress is a hassle to clean, I love everything else about it, and I will be wearing it for a long time.

I paired this monochrome textured shift dress with this black faux leather jacket, which is also a new wardrobe addition. Remember in my January Fashion Wishlist, I mentioned I needed a leather jacket. Well, I have needed a leather jacket since my last piece – Guess leather jacket, gave up on me some months ago. I originally wanted a 100% real leather jacket but I couldn’t afford it, so faux leather will do for now. They pretty much look the same, leather and faux leather (here is me trying to console myself), don’t they? Whatever…….

I prefer this leather jacket to my previous leather jacket. This is from a petite range, so it has a perfect fit, and I adore the biker look and the gold zip detail. I think it is so cool.

The monochrome flat shoes are also new. I needed a comfy pair to run errands in, and still look good enough for outfit photos, and casual outings, and this ticked all the boxes. My new favourite pair for spring.

Beauty Muse – Eku Edewor

The British/Nigerian TV presenter, model, actress – Eku Edewor is the Beauty Muse of the week.

Eku-Edewor-Makeup

Eku Edewor is a stunner, her makeup is always perfect, her skin glows in dark, she is always looking radiant, her facial features are out of this world, she is all shades of beautiful. She is the Real Deal.

I remember watching a video of her some months where she shared her skincare routine and stripped all her makeup off and she still looked flawless.

Here is the video below:

Eku+Edewor-110

I have always wanted to know what her beauty routine was like and I found it. Here is her full beauty routine culled from an interview with Into The Gloss:

I’ve tried every beauty product ever. I’m not really one of those people who sticks specifically to a brand, but I’ve used everything from Dermalogica, to Liz Earle, to Eve Lom—I find that changing it up helps my skin. But I have favorite moisturizers: I love Kiehl’s, the classic facial moisturizer, and I use that as a night cream as opposed to a day cream because I’ve got oily skin. I use a lot of Becca makeup—they originally started in Australia, but they’ve now gained traction in London. They’re beautiful, beautiful makeup products, and that’s the only makeup I wear on my face.

This lipstick is YSL Rouge Volupté. I have a few of these colors, ‘cause they’re just so great. They’re beautiful-looking, as well; they’re a great little accessory. Lipsticks are my favorite thing in makeup. So, I wear a lot of MAC, ‘cause obviously MAC has hundreds of colors. There’s a color, So Chaud, which is an orange red, that I’m really into right now because it’s more modern than a classic red. I mean, I think everyone has a Ruby Woo somewhere in their makeup bag. I also like the Russian Red and the classic MAC Red, but the So Chaud has a lot of orange in there.

I agree with her, I think every woman should have a Ruby Woo lipstick in their makeup bag if they don’t already have one. MAC does amazing lipsticks and you are sure to find colours to love in their large lipstick collection but the Ruby Woo is the boss in my eyes for now.
