Welcome to another make-up look : Christmas special.

So yeah I said the “christmas special”. I’m sure some of you are wondering why she has the head wrap on, I decided to be creative with this look and take it back to my culture. I belong to the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria. The head wrap is called Gelé and this particular type is known as Asò oké. The head wrap can be a hassle sometimes but it beautifies the woman and makes her stand out.

To give it that Christmas feel, I worked with colors green, red and gold – the famous Christmas colors. Normally It would be my face up there but i decided to use my pretty friend today. Isn’t she pretty? Marriage ready lol.

P.s Friend for sale, Get at me. 0700 – I – JOKE.

THE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL LOOK

MAIN COLORS: GOLD, GREEN & RED. I know you don’t see a red in this look but there is, I used a vampy red; COLOURPOP – LAX.

I’m just going to be brief about this look.

 

This look is a typical Owambe (wedding party look) with the head wrap. This is a signature look in my culture. We love parties – Saturdays are for parties. My gelé isn’t perfect yet but I’m still learning but i tried a bit, right?

  1. This makeup look is AMAZING, I will definitely be trying this during summer I absolutely love the pops of colour. I also love that you’ve listed all of the products too, making life that bit easier for anyone wanting to try it out!

  2. What a gorgeous look, I really love the lip colour. Vampy lips are perfect for this time of year.
    The gele looks stunning, I’d love to know how you do it as it looks so intricate and complicated.
