Makeup Class 101 on V DAY!!!

Hello Divas,

I am back after being quite for quite some times… Today, I am sharing with you a few pics that were taken during a makeup class that I organized on Valentine’s day at my house.

The goal of this makeup class was to teach some of my makeup techniques and give a few tips to women of color when it comes to makeup application. The session took place in the afternoon because I wanted to take full advantage of the beautiful sun of Dakar…

My first model below was my dear friend Shoon, she has medium to light complexion with a beautiful bone structure. I first did a very natural day look and then showed how this day look could be transformed in more sophisticated night look by adding just one or 2 colors.


ALL MAC unless specified

SHOON’s Day Look:


Powder: Lose Mineralize Powder in Deep Dark

Blush: Ablaze


Eyebrows: Spiked pencil (Shoon has already beautiful shaped eyebrows ; she threads them to get that shape, I just added spiked pencil to define them a lil bit more)

Base: Concealer select cover up

Eyelid: Bamboo with brush # 242

Crease: Folie with brush # 224

Highlighter: Arena with brush # 252

Eyeliner: Boot Black on top and graphblack in the inner eye rim

Mascara: LANCOME High Definicils


Liner:  Cork

Lipglass: C-thru (very softly)

SHOON’s Night Look:

I just added the following products to her day look to create a night look:


ILLUMINATING POWDER: Mineralize powder Global glow on the T-zone

BRONZER: Bobbi Brown DEEP 4


Corner crease: Beauty Marked with brush # 217


Liner: Nightmoth

Lipglass: Peroxide
