Get Glam with Me | Makeup


The last couple of weeks, I have been busy sorting out some things, hence I didn’t upload a video on my YouTube channel. Today I woke up around 09h00 to prepare myself to go to the mall. When I woke up, I stood by my bedroom windows to soak in and enjoy the bright sunshine.  Within a minute of me standing there,  I thought to myself “what a good lighting to film a makeup tutorial?”. And that’s what I decided to do.

Afraid that the lighting could change, I immediately made breakfast for me and my son, took a shower and filmed this look.


Today was also my first time attempting to apply false lashes.  I have to say, it was a bit of a struggle, but I am in love with the final look.


I hope you too like the look and find the video helpful. Thank you for watching and please don’t  forget to subscribe  to my channel.



How to Get (or Fake!) Thicker Eyebrows


Today’s post is all about the eyebrow game.


Although I was not blessed with thick and fuller eyebrows, I always hated thin eyebrows.

The fact is – thick eyebrows make a face look younger. I cannot emphasize enough on how important brows are, how they frame your face and can take years off a woman’s face in a completely natural sexy way.  Thick eyebrows have become my little obsession 🙂

As we age, the eyebrow bone begins to look heavy and our eyelids become puffy, and thinly arched eyebrows don’t provide much coverage.  A fuller, arched brow can make puffy eyes visible and give your whole eye area a lift, as well as giving your eyes a more definition.

Well, because of the likes of Cara Delevinge (the Queen of thick eyebrows), the fuller-bushy-arched eyebrows from the 80s is now back in trend.  Something that I am very excited about.


I know not everyone is blessed with thick eyebrows, but with a few tricks and the right products, it’s easy enough to get your eyebrows look fuller and sexy.  I call it – a push-up bra for your brows 🙂


To show you how I make my eyebrows look fuller, I have linked down below a video that I uploaded not so long as on my youtube channel.
