Meet my gal-pal Danielle. At 30 she is well on her way to achieving her goal of A graduate of the University of the West Indies Cave Hill and Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad, Danielle holds
Much like the other 30 year olds I know she ain't no old girl. Between traveling, shopping , socializing and our regular Cafe Sol and beach limes Danielle is always on the move.
Professionally Danielle is on her way to the top. A Senior
I wanted to give Danielle one of her signature looks. Whenever I do her makeup she requests a smokey eye and why not. It is classic, no fuss and can go from flirty to professional. Too often we rush out of the house without makeup, doing just enough to get through the day. Let me say it now CLEAR LIPGLOSS IS NOT ENOUGH. You aren't a teenager liming at Accra. Get out some colour girl!
Yes I know its an office but I don't mean you should stripe yellow or pink shadow across your lids to match your blouse. For the office stick to neutral tones. Not only will it hide any mistakes you made while applying your shadow at the stoplights, but your face will say " I took time to look professional and I am ready for work". Even if your shoes are off under the table and you forgot lunch at home.
To create this look I used:
Black Opal foundation in Beautiful Bronze
Blush: Nars TAj Mahal and Sleek Blush in Aruba
Matte Black Shadow by Inglot
Sleek Au Naturel Palette
Mac liner in Smoulder
Loreal Voluminous Mascara
Mac Lipliner in Currant
Berry coloured lipstick
Now this woman means business!!

I know that list looks daunting but don't try it all at once and not on a Monday morning if you have to drive through Warrens. Take it a little at a time. Before you know it you too will look like an N2N Professional.
