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.

Corona virus and the beauty industry
Disinfecting and cleaning Brushes.

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,

Hugs and kisses.

Misykona.

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.

Talking about Beauty Camera

Hey Beauties,

The past week was awesome; it provided me an opportunity to share my experience working with a beauty camera I use for my vlogs and makeup gigs. Ok so, I am using the phrase beauty camera because it serves just the purpose as it is stated – a camera for beauty, a makeup camera or a YouTube camera.

Yep, phones are great but not so great when you need them to extend and give you a certain kind of professional videos or images, therefore as a result, a vlogging camera would do the trick. With my phone, I always had to fall back on beauty plus for instance to help me edit my pictures to exactly the way I wanted them but for video, there was no remedy, you are stuck with what you have.

My Beauty Camera Journey

For a beauty camera, my journey started with a Canon 60D, plain old trusted camera with the 50mm lens, couldn’t do video, I knew I needed a YouTube camera so I began my research and switched to my first ever mirrorless camera – The Canon M100. The M100 for a beauty camera was small in size and features but then it seemed to get the job done as a YouTube camera. You can check out the Launch of the M100.

Of course, in no time I knew I had to step it up for a more serious beauty camera, but then came the M50, also cute and small but definitely with more advanced features. I stuck with the M50 for a while until the EOS M6MKII and MKIII came along from Canon.

So essentially for a vlogging camera, the EOS M6MKII and G7 X are the perfect babies. Let me quickly do a quick rundown of the features of the EOS M6MKII which certainly if you ask me is ideal for your YouTube camera.

Canon EOS M6 Mark III
Canon Mirrorless camera

Ideal vlogging camera – EOS M6MKII

DESIGN

The M6MKII shoots at 14 frames per second and 30 frames per second raw bust mode with continuous focusing and excellent details! You can tilt at 180 degrees and get your desired angles.

PICTURE QUALITY

There is no better joy than having clear cut pictures and the MK6 MK11 shoots at 32.5 mega pixels APS – sized censor. The M6MKII combines a 1.0-type back-illuminated 20.1 Megapixel sensor with the superior processing power.

VIDEO EXPERT QUALITY

The M6MKII camera shoots at 4K video and up to 120fps Full HD.

YOUTUBE LIVE STREAM

With the M6MKII, I can effortlessly run live streams on youtube, it has made life made easy for me.

WEIGHT

I really do not need to bother about too much weight because the Canon M6MKII is light and a total mood to move around with, no extra baggage. For instance, the MKIII is always in my pocket.

BUILT-IN WIFI AND BLUETOOTH

Most importantly, you can connect your smartphone wirelessly to these cameras instead of removing your memory card every time. It makes it easy for me to share pictures on social media platforms almost immediately.

USB CHARGING

The M6MKII allows you to charge on the go! For instance, if you are on the road, all you need is a USB cable that you can connect to charge.

BATTERY LIFE

Battery life is fantastic, the M6MKII runs several hours of video, therefore you have to worry about charging quickly.

There you have it for beauty cameras that can take your vlogging game to the next level and you can also Canon USA to see a more comprehensive description of the M6 Mark II.

Hey beauties,

My friend and sister Omolola just turned 40 and we went to the best places  in Dubai to celebrate. It was a time for us to relax and enjoy the much-needed break from work and just generally reset our body and mind.

Every time I come to Dubai, the experience always remains surreal. It is almost as if you visited the place all over again. There is always something new and exciting to catch up on, some new exotic place that has just been launched or some insane technology that is already in use.

If you are planning to visit Dubai anytime soon, you can check out the picture below and also check out some earlier posts I have mentioned about the beautiful city of Dubai.

Dubai with the crew

goofing around

The flight was organized by @flydubaing . You can follow them on Instagram and I totally recommend them.

We were 11 people on this trip and all we wanted was to have fun (which we did) I will share some of the best places to go (with pictures)  We were lodged at Delta Hotels Jumeirah Beach, Dubai. The view was amazing and the hospitality was second to none.

Breakfast spread….

First, before you step out , use sunscreen to prevent you from having Sunburn because Dubai is a Desert>

Matilda and I , flaunting our Summer body.

Night view from Delta Hotels Jumeirah Beach, Dubai.

First, we went on a Yacht Cruise Dubai Marina. We were able to see how the water transport system works in Dubai and get another beautiful view of the city(with loads of fresh air)

Omolola

Aunty Namz

The Full Crew  From Left . Myself , Uchechi (Wynks) Dr ANwili, Matilda, Lollipops , Jide, Chika, Aunty Namz ,Dr Ivy, Adeola , Atimama.

The second place we went to was where we had Omolola 40th Dinner party at Saffron restaurant, Atlantis the Palm Dubai.  Its a foodie heaven, Its a buffet-style setting with different dishes from the different continent with loads of drinks, dessert etc, in short, we were spoilt for choice.

The third-place we went to was Yas Waterworld. It was more adventurous and we played in the water and had some scary rides. Note: you must go with your Sunscreen otherwise you can get a sunburn.

On the fourth day, we were out for Desert Safari ride and dinner. I almost lost my voice screaming due to the crazy driving. We were entertained by the belly dancer and fire boy with sumptuous buffet dinner.

The fifth place is the Dubai Spice and Gold Souk, its located in Deira and it’s your perfect place to shop for spices, perfume oil, incense, oud, and gold jewelry. It was on our way to exploring the beautiful city of Dubai, The museum, the town, etc.

Finally, The best place to visit in Dubai for all your shopping  … The Dubai Mall  . It is breathtaking and a beautiful place and has a lot of major fashion brand, food court, Aquarium, water world and you will be fully spoilt for choice .

I quickly made my way to Sephora and shopped for some products. The best place to find makeup and beauty related products.

Have you been to Dubai and where is your favorite spot in Dubai? Kindly share in the comment section.

I also have a video on Youtube on our Dubai Birthday, Kindly click HERE to watch.

Hey beauties,

I want to share another recent beauty find of mine with you, its called LUZTA Body Glue, this product from a  Nigerian beauty brand called “LUZTA Cosmetics ” They specialize in eye products ( glitter, pigments, and body glue).

I have used and reviewed the glitter and pigments before read HERE

The Luzta Body glue helps pigment and glitters stay on longer and crease-proof.

It also helps to make the colors of the pigment pop and the only way to get it out is by using a wet wipe.

It doesn’t have any smell and the texture is thick but not slimy. All you need is a little.

for best result apply with your hand in a patting or dabbing motion.

 

I couldn’t help myself, I got more Pigments. Daisy, Butter milk, Medallion, and Amber.

 

PRICE

Pigment

N1500

Body Glue

N2500

You can get it from @luztacosmatics on Instagram.

I definitely love this product and I will repurchase.

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @misykona

Till my next post,

Hugs and kisses.

Hello Beautiful People,

Have you ever been on a long-distance flight? It could well easily be one of the most uncomfortable experiences if you ask me. Anything upwards of 8 hours for me is a long-distance flight, then try to imagine yourself on your way to say Sydney Australia for instance with about 23 hours 15 minutes flight time, almost a full day’s travel – just imagine!!

I have not been on a long-distance flight as well which got me thinking about how one could survive a flight that is more than 10 hours. I had to think really deep. If I watched a 3-hour movie, which is highly unlikely, I would still have 7 hours clear, so what if I slept for 5 hours, which is still very unlikely as my mind can never be tricked into not knowing the difference between solid land and air. I would still be left with a good 2 hours to play with not considering the fact that you would be seated most part of this 10-hour flight.

So how does one do it? How does one survive this experience in the least unpleasant way? I then stumbled on what Travelstart had to say about surviving your first long flight. It is a simplified pictogram; you can take a quick look as I add a few more things I discovered you could do just below the pictogram.

Ok so, in addition to what you just read above, you really need to take pre-booking seriously. If you are someone that likes the window seat or even the aisle and you don’t want to end up twisting and turning throughout the flight, it is best to pre-book and choose the best seat that will work for you.

Be careful also with the too good to be true cheap flights, don’t get me wrong, cheap is not bad but for a long-distance flight, you need to consider that a cheap flight has the likelihood of having longer stopovers, very little legroom and probably crappy service.

Another very important thing especially if you are travelling economy is to pack your own gear. By gear, I mean bring your own headphones, for instance, the headphones you will be provided on some of these flights are terrible and you would be stuck with them throughout the flight.

Also, you might want to consider that entertainment on some flights might not be in English, you do not want to be caught on a long flight just staring at a screen without understanding, you can do yourself some good by loading up your own movies on your tablet, phone or laptop.

Do not even make the mistake of forgetting your charger; you can either get a USB to plug in or a full socket to charge depending on the plane.

Lastly, and probably the most important one for me is to drink lots of water. This has been known to help with jetlag; it will also no doubt help with hydration.

So there you have it, this is the summary of how to get through your first long flight. Bon Voyage!!!!

Hugs and Kisses,

Misidreads. 💖
