Glam in under 20 minutes

Okay I lied.

Approximately 20 minutes.

I did my eyebrows in the morning, and they usually take a maximum of 10 minutes to do. The look I did in these photos took around 15-20 minutes from start to finish.

None of the photos have filters, nor have they been altered in any way.

Eyebrows:

  1. Lined with a random eyebrow pencil from where my mum gets her hair done in Nairobi. If you’re Kenyan you know those ones, yeah the 100 bob ones that work wonders.
  2. Concealed with two products: Mac Foundation at the bottom, (don’t know the shade, it was in a tester container lol, but it’s two shades lighter than I am) and at the top Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless in the shade 364

Base/Rest of Face

  1. Primed using the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer
  2. Foundation: Fenty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in the shade 450
  3. Concealer: Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer in the shade 450 (the concealers are designed to be slightly lighter than your foundation shade, so the numbers should correspond with each other)
  4. When contouring my face I use the darkest shade in the Sleek Extra Dark 977 Cream Contour Kit 
  5. I set anywhere I used the concealer, as well as below my cheekbones using the Fenty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder in the shade Nutmeg
  6. I don’t usually highlight but today I did. Don’t know why, I just did. I used the Fenty Shimmer Skinstick in the colour Rum

This post is starting to look like it’s sponsored by Fenty. I promised you it isn’t but I wouldn’t be complaining if it were.

Lips

I went for a glossy lip. I used the Fenty gloss bomb in the colour ‘Fenty Glow’ 

Eyes

  1. I used the Mac Cosmetics ‘False Lashes’ mascara
  2. Lashes used: Eylure Volume No. 107

And there you have it. A simple look. If you wanted to go all out you could add a red lip. I’m a fan of dark lipstick so I would go for a dark purple.

GAKENIA.
