Navy: Healer, Higher spirit, Physic abilities

Golden Yellow: Confusion, depression, independence

The two mixed makes Emerald Green; Chakra’s, the region of the body is neck and throat, regality

May 14th – I did like my gellish nails from NAILSBYMETS, they lasted very long ( 14days) but the take off process was unfavourable, especially when your busy and you dont have 2hrs to soak off nail polish. I’m sure the the nail world will solve that issue.So i’m back to my OPI polishes, self painted.

 

May 8th – I was the makeup designer & skincare specialist for the beautifully humble Grammy Nominee N’Dambi. Her manager, Miss Monica Young is very particular about N’Dambi’s brand, image & skincare needs, which worked perfectly with my pioneering natural beauty in the beauty industry.

I applied Quench Thy Thirst Nutritious Tonique to her face. She had pronounced pours after being on the road for a few months, and literally bombing it down to Brixton from Southport, Wales!

Balm for face and her body, Bobbi Brown stick foundation in Honey and soft sultry barely smokey eyes with nude gloss lips.

N’Dambi has taken a Quench Thy Thirst Balm back to LA and can’t wait to see how it heals the blemishes!
