It’s feels good to be back here again after a very short break ????
The reason for this post is as a result of a skincare / makeup poll I posted on my Insta story. Few people asked me some questions and am gona reply them in this post. If you didn’t ask, you can also learn from it
1. HOW DO YOU TREAT HYPER PIGMENTATION
Hyper pigmentation is a skin problem that I have been battling with since and am still struggling with, but I use sunscreen to reduce the effects of the sun burns. I also try to bath twice everyday and use a brightening moisturiser in the night to rejuvenate my skin. The sun screens i use will be below????
2. WHICH SOAP AND BODY CREAM DO YOU USE?
I am currently using only oil, because I haven’t had the time to go to the super market. The oil I use is the FBC beauty oil, you can get yours from here orhere . I am currently using the Irish spring soap right now
3. TREATING PIMPLES AND SPOTS HAS BEEN A STRUGGLE, PLEASE HELP
So I have been struggling with pimples too, but lately I don’t get much pimples like before because of a black soap that I have been using (SHEA BUTTER SHEEN ) I got the product from a super market and I decided to try it. Since I started up till now, I don’t get alot of acnes on my face anymore, especially on my cheeks. I think the secret for having a good face is to avoid using alot of products on it. Thankfully my skin heals fast, so my spots fade quickly.
4. WHICH PRODUCTS DO YOU USE TO PREP YOUR SKIN BEFORE MAKEUP
I use my dove moisturiser/sun screen (above) and a setting spray(classic)
5. YOUR OPINION ON SKIN BLEACHING?
We are in a society where alot of people intend on changing their skin color to appear more attractive. This has been a topic of controversy, however I don’t see any thing wrong in toning up (1 shade lighter) but if it’s to completely change your colour, then it shouldn’t be the right thing to do.
6 HOW DID YOU BECOME SO GOOD WITH MAKE-UP? (I AM A FAN)
Thank you ????. It’s as a result of consistent practice and learning. I learnt from YouTube and I kept practicing on my face and my friends’ faces. Also investment, investing your money to learn more makeup tricks and tips
7. SKIN CARE ROUTINE?
To be honest I don’t follow that skin care routine sometimes, but if i am gonna be serious about It, it will be; washing and cleansing my face every morning( with my black soap) and night , exfoliating once every week (st Ives scrub ) and masking once a month ( Dr Davey black mask )
8. I FIND IT HARD TO APPLY MAKEUP ON DARK SKINS IT APPEARS OFF SOMETIMES, WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?
personally I will suggest that you make sure that you apply the right foundation on the face and you blend it step by step. Don’t apply it all at once, because it may be hard to blend. The powder should also go with the skin, don’t use powders that are really white because it may be hard to blend it Well.
9. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED TO BECOME A BEAUTY BLOGGER, BUT I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START
Okay, I started blogging since 2014, but I stopped because I felt I didn’t really know how to operate it and i had alot to do back then. I started taking my blog seriously last year and I wanted to reach out to alot of audience. The key word is START you can start from anywhere, blog about the skincare products you have currently, blog about tips and tricks, blog about affordable products, any thing and let your passion be there.
10. IT’S HARD FINDING A PROPER FOUNDATION FOR MY SKIN, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT I CAN USE?
There are different good foundations out there to use. I personally use maybelline, marykay, milani and classic. You can get them from any store. Before getting your foundation, you have to test it on your hands first so you can get the proper shade. Don’t use your neck color ! And don’t use your face color either, because your face might be fairer or darker than your skin. For oily skin, I suggest you get matte foundations and for dry skin; dewy foundations will be okay for you.
11. WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO MAKEUP PRODUCTS?
I don’t usually wear make up that much, but if i am not going for a serious occassion, I will apply my la girl pro concealer in fawn and pure beige and my setting powder (sacha cosmetics) I can use lipstick or lip gloss and blush (avon) but if i am going out for a serious occassion, I will apply all the necessaries. lashes are optional for me, except if they are needed.
12. WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE PRIMER YOU USE FOR YOUR FACE, BECAUSE YOUR MAKEUP IS ALWAYS FLAWLESS IN SCHOOL
I rarely use primers because my setting powder (sacha buttercups ) does all the tricks. But if I wana use primer, I will select from my favourite ones – London rimmel primer, milk of magnesia and markay pore filler primer.
I wana thank you all for asking me questions and I hope my answers were okay for you????????
I couldn’t answer some other questions because they were not related to skincare and makeup, however I answered them privately. ????
If you have more questions feel free to ask me ????????
