So you just completed your final training as a Makeup Artist and you’re ready to start beating those faces. First step is to begin building your Makeup Kit which can be a bit of a challenge when you’re starting out as an Artist. Makeup these days can be pricey, especially products from the popular cult brands like Fenty Beauty, Huda Beauty, Artist Couture or luxury brands like Lancome or MAC, coupled with the fact that you’ve just started and you’re not quite raking in the clients yet. Well let’s praise the makeup god’s for Julia! Julia is an Associate Makeup Artist at popular makeup house Doranne Beauty, and she is known for her ‘nack’ at finding cheaper alternatives for more expensive products; these are termed ‘duplicates’ or ‘dupes’ in the beauty world.

In this post Julia shares with us 5 Dupes, she personally uses on her clients, that give her similar results to the original (more expensive) product:

 

1. MAC COSMETICS BROWS STYLER ‘SPIKED’

 

 

 

 

2. DIOR ADDICT LIP MAXIMISER

 

 

 

3. TARTE MARACUJA OIL

 

 

 

4. MAC STUDIO FIX POWDER

 

 

5. MAC PREP+PRIME FIX+ SPRAY

Last week Tuesday, after a few weeks implementing our Transition Plan, a post was shared on our Instagram page (@BeautyInLagos) that I was no longer the sole BeautyInLagos-narrative, which means I will no longer be the only person contributing to this Platform; this also includes social media. I felt the need to share that and publish this post because it’s only right to explain the changes that you all may have started noticing. I started BeautyInLagos 6 years ago in the hopes to bridge a gap that, at the time, existed; people needed information and no one was really willing to share it. So I started a blog to share all I knew about Beauty In Lagos, which expanded to include beauty in Nigeria, really. But I always knew that there was only so much I could share, so I hoped that as I shared more people will then be willing to share as well, and then BeautyInLagos (BiL) would grow into an actual Beauty Community where we all shared our knowledge and discoveries with one another. To be honest, I thought it would take a few years to manifest that plan, but in actual fact it’s taken 6! *lol, oh, the things life will teach you*

I’ve always created content for both the blog and it’s social media pages, but now it’s time for me to allow BiL grow and expand into a Team that Creates, Curates & Cultivates content; for both this Site and it’s Social Media Platforms.

What does all this mean? Just, BETTER CONTENT! For 6years you’ve pretty-much heard just one side of the story, now you get to enjoy content from carefully selected Contributors and our team of Beauty Editors. I will also still be contributing to the site, because BiL will forever be my Baby even though she’s growing up!

 

The BeautyInLagos message remains the same, but the vision is expanding and I’m most definitely still in charge! You can keep up with me personally by following my new Instagram & Twitter pages: @Eziface 

Thank you all for being a part of my journey this past 6years and I pray you continue to be a part of this exciting new chapter we are about to embark on. #BiLFam.

Who better to dish on all things GLOW than the Glow-Queen herself, Teniola (Tenny) Kashaam. Tenny is the Head Makeup Artist at TennyCoCo Studio and is popularly known for her signature luminous makeup looks. Her finished looks always want to make you reach for the nearest highlighter and just bathe in it. She has mastered a technique that sets her apart from her counterparts so we had to get her to spill on some of her favourite ‘Glow’ products; particularly for deeper skintones.

She shared there’s two parts to this ‘Glow Game’; It starts with the base (Illuminators) and ends with the finishing touch (Highlighters).

For her base she alternates between an array of products she calls ‘Glow Essentials’, which we will share in this post. And for the finishing touches, a variety of highlighters/bronzers, we shall share in another post.

So we sat down with Tenny to find out what her top 5 Glow Essentials for Melanin Skin are:
