Yolandie Venter – Owner entrepreneur of Yolandie’s Lash Extensions Boutique – is an award-winning lash extension expert and shares her top secrets on lash extensions to leave you fluttering with excitement. What are lashes made from? In general, there are three kinds of extensions. Mink, Faux Mink, and Silk. The most

A soft glam makeup look is different from a ‘glam’  or an ‘everyday’ makeup look. The smokey eye look is so 1999, the most replicated makeup look in the beauty world is the soft glam look.   This makeup look can be worn on a normal day, runnings errands, out with friends or even to a wedding.  While a glam look is strictly for special occasions and an everyday makeup look would be subtle enough to wear to work. I am by no means a makeup expert but I’m that girl

Raise your hands if you’ve got oily skin concerns. It’s not a competition but I bet my skin is oilier than yours. I’ve yet to meet anyone other than my mum who’s face produces as much oil as mine. I loathe it and even though they tell you that oily skin is less prone to wrinkles which means you look 20 at 40 years of age, I still don’t care for it. What causes oily skin? There are many factors that contribute to the production of oil on your skin.

Founders of Flawless Xtensions, a beauty bar in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, Nigeria are best friends and have known each other for more than 19 years. At the time the brand was established in 2009, it was just two friends importing and selling great quality hair to colleagues and friends. Seven years later, Flawless Xtensions has grown to become a trusted brand for excellent quality hair, a brand that is now worth millions. Kanyinsola Latinwo (on the left),  a lawyer by profession and co-founder of Flawless Xtensions has always had

Say goodbye to ombre lips, two-toned lips are the latest and hottest beauty trend. I first spotted this trend on Instagram and it immediately grabbed my attention. The lips, not unlike the eyes are the focal point of your face. I’m that girl who aims to buy the brightest, boldest and most unique lip colour at the shop. Anything from purple, blue, pink or black, I’ve got. So, the two-toned lips trend instantly became a ‘ must try’  for me. The two-tone lips trend involves using two different shade/colour of

Over the past few months, beauty has become a little obsession of mine.  I am constantly on the hunt for the best beauty products out there. I have always had a love for all things beauty related but the fact that I’ll soon be turning 30 years old has got me a little spooked and concerned for the future of my skin. While I may not be able to turn back the hands of time and stay in my twenties forever, I can at least try to reduce the signs of

Jackie Burger’s Salon 58 I had the privilege of attending my first ever Jackie Burger soiree, an event that took place last week Saturday, 13 August 2016 at the P.J Olivier Art Centre. The theme for the show was Awaken Grace in celebration of Women’s Month. Jackie Burger is a South African style icon, she was an editor at Elle magazine and holds a lot of clout in the South African fashion industry – she is sort of like the Anna Wintour of South Africa except she is much more experimental in

I’ve been wearing make-up since I was 13 years old but didn’t know much about primers until a few years ago. However, I am no expert. I got curious about primers because I like to know what’s hot and happening in the beauty world. If something is supposed to help enhance your look, you better believe I know about it. I may not do everything I hear about but I am “in the know” ;). Primers are quite frankly a must if you work over nine hours a day and

The Kiss

I’d heard about Lush from other bloggers on Instagram but not one to give in to hypes, I  only popped in store for the first time EVER this week – just in time for Valentine’s Day. I am what one can term a lover of all things womanly. If it makes you look or smell good, I’ll buy it! So you can imagine how I felt when I walked into Lush at The Waterfront this Wednesday. Kid at a candy store is an understatement in describing how I felt, perhaps Alice in
