I got to be part of one of the best fashion events in the country and enjoyed every part of it from working with other makeup artists to meeting new and incredible people. I’m glad to share everything that went down with you especially new makeup tips and tricks I learned while I was there.
I managed to give a wicked cat eye to one of the models Cathy Esamai using a black liquid liner another easy way of getting a perfect cat eye is using tape as a guide clean up under with a concealer to make it pop more. For foundation I went with her black opal foundation I also did a bit of highlighting and contouring to bring out those cheek bones.click here to read more.
The next model was singer Wayinke who had stunning eyes which I made pop even more by giving her a smokey cat eye simply but creating a winged line then slowy smudging it out using a small blending brush, a bit of gold shimmer on the lid gave her eyes that sexy look.

The best part was the master class learning the model look of the night along side other makeup artists from blackup. We had one of the best Makeup artists Kangai Mwiti from Bellesaafrica show us step by step how to achieve the look plus a few tips, she worked on our very own the stunnung CarolOdero.
Only using blackup products she began with the eyes starting with an elecrtic blue eyeshadow shade all over the lid then blending it out with a dark brown shade which she achieved by mixing black and brown shades. Her highight and contour skills are amazing she bagun by using a lighter shade under her eyes, on the forehead and the jawline which matched Carols‘ chest then using her face tone as the contour because it was slighty darker the look was perfect and I for one had a great time re creating it on the models.
Stay blessed mwaah
