THE THING ABOUT MAKE-UP
Photography by me
The thing about make-up is that it creates an illusion of perfection which is what it's supposed to do after all but when you start getting used to your made-up face it can be an issue. I was a late Bloomer when it came to make-up. Mama's make-up went as far as Vaseline and eyeliner so I never cared. I always felt that it was pointless and took too much time.
It wasn't until my freshmen year of university that I got into it. And let me tell you at first it was great but then I stopped taking care of my natural face. My skin broke out in scars and that's when l became so dependent on make-up. I never left my house without it unless I was running a late night errand. I don't even think I wear that much make-up. All I do is foundation, eyebrows, lipstick and eyeliner when I'm in the mood.
I am slowly weaning myself of this dependence and I'm proud to say that I can now confidently go out without make-up. In fact this is my first official post without it. Make-up is great as it can make or break your outfit but when you start to dislike your natural face it can be an issue which is why I try to stick to the basics when wearing make-up but that's just me. What are your thought on this?

On an ordinary day, I'd probably be wearing something like this. I find midi-skirts to be so freeing and thrift stores are my go-to place for them. Now I know I said I'm not a fan of sneakers paired with skirts in this post but hey a girl can change her mind. Besides these shoes are so comfy and perfect for my Nigerian roads.
