TRIBE.

I decided to enter the NYX Face Awards, something that I've consistently seen happening in the States, I thought, what the heck!? I decided to quickly do some bantu knots or Chiney Bumps if you're from Jamaica, like my nan said to me "Oh you got di chiney bump inna ya head" either name they turned out pretty well considering it's only the 3rd time I've done them, the hair respected me! If this look is anything to go by after the Marc Jacobs 'mini buns' backlash, I'd say there's a lot of cultural appreciation happening.

I wanted to do something I've wanted to do for a while and as I pondered for the past couple days what to do, while out Thursday morning it just hit me and I came home and got straight to it, besides the hair it took me about an hour and a bit to do and I loved it! When I can be more outside the box, it's so much more fun and I appreciate the love & support thus far from people.

For the first time I used the Stageline Sphere Eye shadows and I was surprised at how pigmented the eyeshadow was, I used it in the crease (the orange) and with the blending brush it still packed on quite a bit. I will do a separate post on these! The AVON Glow Bronzing Pearls has a rusty shade to it, which I liked as it gave me this burnt, red to the temple and I wanted things quite sharp on the cheeks.
