SEMI PERMANENT LASHES – THE LASH LOUNGE

I’ve been giving my lashes a little breather from lash extensions this year, but The Lash Lounge is the one spot I always recommend to anyone who asks where to go. Sheun, the Head Lash Artist, is the absolute best and the lash extensions they use are the softest, lightest, most natural looking ever!

EYEBROW THREADING – STELLA’S ADDICTION

Stella of Stella’s Addiction is literally the ONLY person I’ll let near my brows now. I think the fact that she’s a professional makeup artist helps, because she understands how important the brows are when it comes to framing a person’s face.

MICROBLADING & SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP – THE BEAUTY ATELIER

Kachi, the owner of, The Beauty Atelier, is literally a BEAST at Microblading. I follow her on Snapchat, she always shares her work, and I am yet to see a job she’s done that isn’t flawless. They also offer other beauty procedures like semi-permanent eyeliner (yes, you read that right). They are worth following on Instagram where you can check out all their work.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL – LASERDERM CLINICS

Laser hair removal is the BEST! But what a lot of people don’t know is that the machines used to perform the procedure differ, most especially for women of colour, specifically black women. The machine used to administer laser hair removal on darker skin tones is completely different from that used for other skin tones, so it’s not just any laser clinic you walk into. Laserderm Clinics use the appropriate machine for darker skintones  (I asked them personally), so that’s why I’m recommending them to you.

A lot of women suffer from stubborn hair growth in areas they’d rather not have it grow, e.g. the chin area, top lip, bikini line, etc. Laser Hair removal has been proven to be one of the best solutions for that and, over time, helps lighten up the area darkened by ingrown hair scars.

Narganics is one of the brands that was featured here on the blog as part of the Proudly Nigerian Beauty Series. They recently launched a new product called Aurum. A first of its kind in Nigeria, Aurum is a 24K Gold Beauty Elixir is handmade in Nigeria and features 24 Karat Gold flakes infused into a proprietary blend of five powerful carrier oils and five essential oils having balancing, nourishing and soothing characteristics.

 

It has a lightweight silky feel and is easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it looking clearer, younger, and smoother. The beauty elixir can be mixed in with your foundation to create a dewy finish, as a lip primer, or added to your existing moisturizer for an all over body treatment.

 

The owner of the brand says her idea to create a 24 Karat Gold infused oil was inspired by Nigerians love of luxury skincare. In her words, she decided ‘to go big’ by introducing the “anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant property of 24 Karat Gold flakes to the formulation”.

 

The brand collaborated with Eku Edewor on this project, as they felt she was an ideal choice. Eku who was pregnant when approached by Narganics was already on a natural skincare journey and saw it as a perfect pairing.
