Hey beauties, permit me to rave about the newest release Beautyline by Didi Lip gloss + Hyaluronic acid. The packaging and the size were what stood out for me. This beauty brand is owned by a Nigerian lady Afolabi Doyinsola who is a trail blazer and powerhouse. She started with the famous retractable eyebrow pencil and has since added more products to her line.

The Hyaluronic acid helps to plump the lips and mimic a fuller lips. Watch Full video of the review HERE

What do you think of the brand and have you tried the lip gloss?The only sad thing about this lip gloss is that the quantity is small and wont mind having a bigger size. Each retails for N2500 and they come in 17 different shades.

Till my next post , loads of hugs. Misykona.

Hey beauties, how are you doing? The valentine season has come and gone and we are back to reality. lol. One of the gift I got was shadecrown beauty eyeliner glue which I am currently obsessed with.

Shadecrown Beauty is owned by a Nigerian, Mrs Shade. Its headquarters is located in Ikeja, Lagos. They have a wide range of beautiful products such as Lashes, lipsticks, eyebrow pencils, beauty blenders to mention a few . Click HERE to check out there website and Instagram.

Shadecrown Beauty

The 2 in 1 eyeliner + glue is N2500 . I love this product because it makes the process of fixing eyelashes a lot easier and faster. It is intense black and doesn’t irritate the eyes. It is so easy to take out with just a wipe. It doesn’t have any smell and dry down time is less than 15 seconds. It must be covered at all times otherwise it will dry up the content .

Have you tried this Shadecrown Beauty eyeliner glue before or is it something you would love to get?

Another Nigerian owned brand there powder is NYKE cosmetics.

Kindly drop your comments.

Till my next post.

Lots of love,

Misykona.

Hey beauties, Today, I am sharing on Nyke powders Review. I got the 3 different finishes available. Nyke powder is a Nigerian owned brand and they have their store in Yaba. The powder comes in 3 different types/ finishes: Oil blotting, Luminous Foundation, and Luxury pressed powder. My first encounter with this brand was at the MAKEUP FAIR . the 2014 Edition in Lagos.

Nyke powders Review, here are the different types of finish they give ..

1} The oil blotting powder: This absorbs oil from the face and gives a matte finish that can last for hours. 2} The Luminous Foundation powder: It can be applied wet or dry and it gives fuller coverage with a little glow. This is more suitable for mature skin. 3} The luxury pressed powder: This just gives a soft finished and can be applied over foundation or alone. It’s more suitable for teenagers without blemish.

The powder is a perfect dupe for IMAN Cosmetics and comes with a makeup sponge and mirror.

Where you can get Nyke powders.

The Nyke powders come in 18 different shades. Available at the Beautiful Paradise Tejuosho Ultra-modern shopping center behind Zenith bank and Spar supermarket Phone nos 08081414151. YOu can send a DM to their Instagram page as well @thebeautifulparadiseny

Things to note when shopping for Nyke powders

When shopping for powders here are a few things to put into consideration to help you decide which is perfect for you. Your skin tone, your skin type (oily or dry skin) how long you want the powder to last (8 hours or less), and the type of coverage or finish you want (full or natural). You should also consider applying with a makeup powder brush, it helps with the finished look as well.

I am currently loving the NYKE powders I got and will definitely repurchase.

Did you enjoy my Nyke powder review? have you used it before, and what do you think? Kindly drop your comments.

Till my next post.

Lots of love,

Misykona.

Corona virus and the beauty industry http://misykona.com/corona-virus-effect-in-the-beauty-industry/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=corona-virus-effect-in-the-beauty-industry http://misykona.com/corona-virus-effect-in-the-beauty-industry/#respond Sun, 03 May 2020 14:13:08 +0000 http://misykona.com/?p=7332 The most common question I hear lately is ” what will happen to the beauty industry post corona?” and then I thought why not write about coronavirus and the beauty industry?

The most common question I hear lately is ” what will happen to the beauty industry post corona?” and then I thought why not write about coronavirus and the beauty industry? Although, to be honest, it’s going to be pretty hard to predict or tell what is going to happen like I can see into the future and this is because I haven’t witnessed a pandemic before. I definitely wasn’t born like a century ago😉

So for the beauty space, professionals that are/will be affected by the coronavirus pandemic are makeup artists, nail techs, lash techs, and hairstylists. These set of people are the ones that come in close contact with their clients and beauty counters, salons, and studios had to close up to stop the spread of the virus.

However, I foresee beauty retailers and brand owners adjusting well because they can easily change their business models and go digital. They can use online platforms such as websites and social media to sell directly to consumers. Live videos have become the in-thing on platforms like Instagram, Facebook, twitter, youtube where you can connect directly with your customers. So what are the benefits of the digital approach? They would be able to get immediate feedback about their products, there will be an increase in sales and engagement.

To be honest, it may be a difficult time for brand owners and Online retailers in Nigeria because of the current exchange rate since manufacturing isn’t done locally and the cost of shipping is also high.

The new normal after corona virus

During the lockdown, the average consumer has been investing in skincare more than makeup because they are at home and do not wear makeup as often. The skincare products that are seen as affordable and easy to use have become the fastest-selling.

On the other side of the street, beauty professionals now sell online classes that can help the client do it themselves. Basic courses like eyebrow grooming, foundation and powder application, etc. have become the norm.

There are high chances this might continue as people will still be a bit skeptical about direct contact. Truth is we will never know until all this is over.

The Future of the beauty industry

The effect of Coronavirus on the beauty industry has caused the loss of billions of dollars. We see major companies like LMVH, Unilever, L’Oreal, Haus Laboratories with big factories and capacity manufacturing ventilators, face masks, sanitizers and donating food.

It has now become mandatory for all in these sectors to practice the highest form of hygiene and sanitation in the business. The client will no longer be using the tester kit to try on products on themselves, the studio space will have to be properly sanitized/ fumigated from time to time. Also, a lot of disposable items will be used as it will not be safe to share products with people or use what’s in the kit for multiple people without proper sanitization

Many salons, studios will be directly affected as there might be not a lot of frequent visitors to the store .due to the cancellation or postponement of events. This might favor the freelance artist as they are usually mobile and won’t have to worry about paying rent and associated expenses.

Beauty professionals can use this period to go fully digital, develop the brand using digital platforms. Create engagement with clients and could also introduce live consultation / Classes.

Every store will have to make water and soap available with alcohol-based sanitizers and also check for the temperature of their clients. Everyone will also have to make use of masks and ultimately practice social distancing.

In conclusion

The potential solution will be to use a personal kit for the client. It will also help to ask the health history of the client and be sure they are not infected with the virus. You should void talking to client when working if you can, the client will most probably not be wearing a mask at that time. You could start retailing products to clients that need them as an extra source of income.

Kindly note that most of these points and suggestions are not peculiar to Nigeria alone as we are dealing with a pandemic that cuts across all continents. Everyone will have to figure out what they can adapt and do going forward.

What do you think of coronavirus and the beauty industry? We will definitely overcome it. Stay safe

Till my next post,

Much love,

Misykona.

Hey Beauties, Welcome to April. The lockdown is beginning to take its toll on everyone. I hope you are safe, washing your hands / sanitizing and practicing social distancing. Working from our various homes is now the new norm, thank God for the internet. Looking presentable is key that’s why I reviewed these powders that can give you a natural finish.

Back to the subject matter, Let me share more thoughts on the Compact powders that I have used and I love. I would love to share why I love them with you.

First up on the list, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Face Powder. luxurious, slow-baked domed face powder with low-level pearlized pigments that provide a dimensional yet natural-satin finish.No need for touch as the makeup stays perfect all day.

Sephora Microsmooth Baked Foundation powder is the second best. It is an ultra-light foundation that blends effortlessly for a natural look and Sunkissed finish.

The different types of Skin

The type of skin plays a major role in determining the type of powder to buy. There are 3 types of skin.

Oily Skin: You have excess oil all over your face.

Combination Skin: You shine only on your T zone (forehead, nose, and chin)

Dry Skin: Your face doesn’t shine at all and you sometimes experience flakiness on your face.

Powder Coverage

The coverage they both give is medium to full. To achieve a perfect finish, use a bit of foundation and spray on a mattifying makeup spray. Your Makeup will stay put.

What the powder looks like?

Best Makeup powder
MAC Mineralise Skin finish and Sephora Micro smooth Baked foundation powder

Similarities between both powders

Both powders are great for people with combination / oily skin\

The finish it gives is an iridescent sheen and not a flat finish

The coverage is great and long-lasting

They do not oxidate or go darker after some time

They both have a wide shade range

Where to get them and affordability

You can get the MAC Mineralise Skin FInish at any MAC Retail outlet in Nigeria. The one in Lagos is located in Ikeja City Mall and The Palms in Lekki. If you enter the store you get to try on the powders for free.

You can order Sephora Powder from Beauty Retailers on Instagram @wholesalebeautyhub , @meccabeauty1 . or Paris Purple Studio in Lekki Lagos.

The prices are subject to the amount the beauty retailer sells. The MAC Mineralise is N13,000 – N15000 or $36 – $41 and Sephora is N9000_ N11000 or $27-$30

These are my Favorite and best Compact powders, I would love to hear what yours are in the comment section.

Until my next post,

Hey beauties,

Compliments of the season and I hope y’all are getting pumped for the new decade. 2020 !

This year has been a year of makeup product launches both locally and internationally. One of my favorite Nigerian brand Beauty line by didi released their Lip liner and Brow tint.

Beauty line by didi lip liner is made of a creamy, easy-glide formula with rich hydrating pigment in a swatch. This 2 in 1 lip pencil helps line and blends for a perfectly contoured pout and it has a dark brown shade

Beauty line by Didi “secure the brows” tinted fiber gel was made with a creamy formula with infused fibers to thicken the brows without flaking. This brow gel gives your brows long-lasting fullness, shape and definition with the firm bristles of a brush allowing for even distribution across your brows

The Lipliner retails for N2000 while the Secure the bro fiber gel tint is N2500

See pictures of products below…

Hey beauties,

Welcome to Fashion week season

It’s that time of the year that you have fashion week put together by different organizers takes center stage. We have 3 major fashion week series that hold every year. As it is customary, the Lagos Fashion Week proudly kicks off first; it showcases all the talented fashion designers the industry has to offer.

Yours truly was at this year’s Heineken Lagos Fashion Week which held at the prestigious Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos. Most importantly, I think it takes its rightful place as the foremost fashion show in Nigeria.

I am a huge fan of fashion shows, just too much fun to go around. You don’t believe me? Click HERE to see

About the Lagos Fashion week

Lagos Fashion Week is a fashion platform that has succeeded in showcasing new talents. Big talents are exported to the rest of the world.

Now, the world is keen on seeing what the fashion week has to offer every single year. Loads of people travel from far and wide to come and witness the true African fashion culture.

Firstly, this massive event has succeeded in bringing buyers, consumers, and the media together, in other words, it has helped to showcase collections of designers at the four (4) day event.

Secondly, as a leading fashion event in Africa, the event has led the way with initiatives that helped garner support for upcoming designers. Consequently, the yearly event has helped strengthen and develop the fashion industry.

Beyond the runway, the annual event provides a platform that has gradually re-positioned fashion in Nigeria. Similarly, the event has become a useful tool for commerce and creativity in Nigeria.

Activities at Lagos Fashion Week

The LFW has loads of activities ranging from runway shows to presentations featuring new season collections from designers. In addition, it has also become a power-packed event that showcased the following:

Fashion Focus Africa

This a talent discovery initiative that creates access to Fashion Fund, knowledge transfer, information exchange. It is a perfect platform for networking opportunities and access to big markets.

Fashion Business Series

This segment is designed to facilitate conversations between key players from the Nigerian and Pan African industries. As a result, there has been exchange of ideas, networking and development in the fashion industry.

Green Access

This segment is purely about talent discovery. It has the vision to encourage designers to create social, economic and environmentally sustainable fashion brands

Visual Makers Fellowship

The visual makers fellowship is created to empower budding filmmakers and photographers with workshops and masterclasses. Click HERE for more details.

Talented Designers

This year’s event had loads of talented designers and fashion stylists in attendance showcasing their beautiful designs. Similarly, there were a lot of foreign nationals eager to have a taste of African fashion.

If you are by any chance a fashion lover and you couldn’t make it down. Trust me, you missed a lot. It provided an amazing platform for networking and inspiration.

I worked mainly backstage which for me most of the real action went down. After that, I also found some time to peek at the runway real time. The makeup looks were all keyed by the super talented Bimpe Onakoya.

The official hair sponsor for the event was Darling Nigeria . They made it a point of duty to glam up the hair of all the models in attendance.

To sum it up, this year’s event was indeed top-notch. In other words, it was lit beyond measure.
