Destiny's Trial....

Destiny saw my works on Instagram and decided to contact me for her wedding. She is based in Warri, but mentioned she would be in Lagos and would like a trial.

On Friday evening she sent me a message that she was in Lagos, so I decided to book her for a trial.  I forgot to bring my camera to the studio so I had to use my Samsung phone to take some pictures.

Destiny wanted to see an engagement look so I used bronze gold glitter on the lid, black for the outer v and red for the transition area. For the lips I went with bright red, which I anticipate will match with her beads.  She also requested I tie a gele for her to have a feel of the complete engagement look.

Here is what we came up with....

Products Used:

  • Hegai & Esther brow gel - Nubia
  • mac studio finish concealer- nw40
  • house of tara eye primer
  • bmpro eye pigment- bronze gold
  • mac e/s- carbon
  • mac e/s- passionate
  • red cherry lashes- #523


  • milk of magnesia
  • black opal stick foundation- nutmeg
  • mac studio finish concealer- nc50
  • maybelline clear smooth powder- nutmeg
  • la girl pro concealer- cool tan
  • sleek contour kit- medium
  • black opal blush- cranberry

  • nyx lip pencil- hot red
  • nyx lipstick- perfect red

Destiny insisted on a brighter gold on the lid, more like a yellow gold, and that is what we settled for. I look forward to glamming her up for her big day!!!!



  1. Nice makeup, but this shade of red on the lips does not compliment the look.

  2. I am really inspired by your work. Keep it up.
