Step-by-Step Makeup Tutorial

Hello everyone, and welcome back to The Selfish Column. This week is all about Makeup. I was extremely happy with my most recent makeup look, that I couldn’t help but to share it on the blog. I have provided a step-by-step guide along with the products and brands used for this look. As dark skin black woman, I know how difficult it gets when you’re shopping for makeup products. To ease that pain, I added hyperlinks to the products listed. Please be aware that some products are no longer in the market or have been discontinued by the brands. 

If you found this post through my Instagram page @nancymeyah welcome and thank you for the love and support. If you have any questions, don’t be shy to leave a comment.

Lips are brought to you by good old petroleum jelly aka Vaseline.
