Let’s get into the weekend looking beat , okay? Okay!
If you are anything like me when it comes to applying makeup on yourself then this post should comes a blessing. Makeup application is a skill that is sometimes generally underrated by the general public. I mean, how hard could it be to dab some blusher on or better still achieve the well-known ‘everyday look?’ Believe me, until you’ve tried (and ended up looking like a full on drag), you’ll never know. Well, do not panic. These expert beauty bloggers can do in their sleep what I struggle to achieve in 45 minutes. Which is why I look up to them. I’ve only recently, learned to do what looks like a winged-eye, thanks to these marvelous ladies. If you’re looking to learn a few tricks or two, or just the basics about makeup application and general grooming then look no further. These are my favourite go-to bloggers for all things beauty related.
First off this beauty blogger is no accidental beauty. She describes her blog as nerd’s guide to living gorgeously. I enjoy her goofy posts and her penchant for trying out the most unlikely eye-shadow colour combos. Have I mentioned she’s no accidental beauty? She also runs separate blogs for hair and food so you will definitely find a lot of variety on her page.
I knew God had buttered my bread when He blessed me with such a sister and friend. Not only is she the best listener but Bih also renders some of the best makeovers I’ve ever seen.

I love her tutorials because because she wears very light colours that I normally wouldn’t go near. Plus she’s constantly finding new ways to stop her face looking greasy. If you have the same problem, you might want to check out her tips and favourite products.

Repping for #TeamGorgeousChocolateSkin is the bodacious Liz. Liz is very lovable and relatable.

Now I am so tempted to try bright orange on my lips. Thanks Erica! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWYnVknWyWE&w=640&h=480]
