1923 Face of the Day: Brown in the rain

On rainy days it is normal for people to dress-up in dark colours which, especially in a city like Lagos, are essential to prevent the occasional splashes of water or even stains from fellow commuters.

On this day, brown was my colour of choice and being one of my favourite colours for clothing, it was not difficult for me to make that decision. I was not feeling exactly bright eyed but I also did not want to look dull at work that day so i opted for a brown smokey eye and a nude lip.

I must say that I loved the outcome of the look. Some of the products I used for the look surprised me especially as I was using them for the first time.



Face:
Sleek creme-to-powder foundations and powders
Zaron brow definer kit and clear mascara to groom brows
Zaron Loose powder in MZ05 LZ25 (for highlighting)
I think I used the blush in the GW palette


Eyes:
J'ourvert gel liner in brown
Bobbi Brown eyeshadow Ombre A Paupieres in Mahogany
Orekelewa twist-up pencil in black
L'oreal white pencil
Maybelline Volum Express mascara in Glam Brown


Lips:
A Bobbi Brown lip colour in Sandwash Beige & Rose balm on it.
