BLACK UP COSMETICS | YEMI ALADE - Product Breakdown

Hey Everyone!

Hope you've all had a great work week!

I don't believe I have ever done a post like this on the blog, but after seeing these images in my inbox I just felt I had to share. This is in NO way a sponsored post, as I will always state if it is; for more information on that you can check out my PR & ADVERTISING Tab.

So, I don't know about you guys, but when I see an album cover, or magazine cover or an editorial spread in a magazine, I always focus on the makeup more than anything else. I'm always curious to know "what lippie was used", or "what highlighter is that glistening off her cheekbones". I know I cannot be the only person that thinks this way, so this product breakdown of Yemi Alade on the cover of the latest issue of Complete Fashion will make someone very happy!

The images are absolutely stunning! Complete Fashion really came through with these!

Another reason why I decided to post this is that all the products are readily available in Nigeria, from any Black Up boutique or Montaigne Place outlets NATIONWIDE! So you can literally re-create this look. 

My favourite is 'Look 2' with the Green shadow and dark wine lips. Love the bold eyes and lips in that, they just work!
