Maybelline-Fit-Me-Matte Poreless-Foundation
Hey guys!
Today i am reviewing the very popular Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation.
So, mid to late last year I noticed that my complexion had changed a little bit. I'd gotten a teeny-tad lighter and more even complexioned and my Mary Kay 600 foundation had become a little too dark for me so I had to change it.

If you are familiar with Mary Kay foundations, you’ll know that the 507 is one shade lighter than the 600, so I thought to try that first from someone who had it to see it if’ll be a match. 
I did and discovered that it was too light for me. Apparently, I have now joined the women whose complexions are in-between shades. Issues.
There was no way I was going to buy two separate shades of foundation, because that would be excessive in my opinion and ‘don’t nobody got time for mixing’, plus, austerity measures… so no.
This led me to research and look for other brands to try, hoping to find something for my new complexion.

Long story short, the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation range came to my notice and I picked up a bottle from the last makeup fair in December, in the 338 'Spicy Brown' shade which was a match with my complexion and for the affordable price of like N3500 or N4000 or so.

About the product, the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is lightweight, light-to-medium coverage and comfortably matte. I have oily skin and gigantic pores, so of course this foundation, even though it’s an excellent product, wasn’t expected to do any surgical facetune miracles, but sisters, I am here to testify that it keeps the oil rush on my face to reasonable levels (better than my Mary Kay). I only have to blot the oil on my stubborn nose and t-zone after like three or four hours, which is FOREVER if you have skin like mine. It also doesn't settle into my pores like some heavier foundations do and i like that.
The foundation is very easy to blend and gives a really smooth, fresh and even finish upon application and even during wear. 
If your face is not mad oily, or even if it is, or if you hate those cement-strength, starch-dry matte foundations, then I recommend this gem, you just need to set it with some finishing powder and you are set (rhymes..).

Has anyone here tried this product? What was/is your experience with it?

Peace and happiness to you.


Review: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation.

It’s another makeup post and this look is not for the faint of heart or light of mind; strong eyes, full brows and power lips.
It’s bold and rich and i had fun creating it, even though my initial intention was to do a cut crease and along the way i blended the cut too much, one thing led to another, and here we are.

Hope y’all are having a great weekend..
This is a quick post about this orange-copper makeup look that i’ve been rocking and loving for a while now.
These shades are super flattering on women of color and a good alternative to the normal nude look, as they are still neutral but with some added glow from the orange eyes and copper lips. 
I think i have also worn two similar looks here before, see here and here , so this type of makeup is really my jam.

Hey guys,
You know how I’ve been raving about step-hem/raw-hem jeans here on the blog and my Instagram (@skynotfancy))?
Well one style blogger I recently started following posted a DIY of the style and it seemed easy enough to do and interesting too, so I said to myself  “Why not?”
This is an easy way to revamp or restyle any old/under-utilized jeans you already own, no need to get a new pair and in my case, I had a pair of thrifted Levis that I got some time ago but have been unable to wear, so they made the perfect guinea pig for this DIY project.
Hacking I went!

What you need:
  • A pair of straight cut or loose-fitting jeans
  • Tape
  • Chalk/marker/pen/pencil
  • Needle or pin
  • Razor blade & Scissors
  • Press the legs of the jeans and place on a flat surface (I did mine on the floor)
  • Trim off the sewed hem of your jeans
  • Starting with one leg, with your tape, measure about 1.5 to 2 inches straight from the hem upwards.
  • Mark the 1.5 to 2 inch point with your chalk/marker/pen/pencil
Yyeeaah i used my eyebrow pencil because one must use what one has to do what one must do..😃
  • With your scissors, cut vertically from the hem up  to your marked point, starting from about one centimeter in from the side seams (see photo above).
  • Then cut across horizontally across the front of the jeans, also leaving one centimeter on the other end.
  • The last step is to take your needle, comb it through the naked hem of jeans, drawing out some ropes loose. The hem will loosen up more as you wear and wash the jeans
Follow the steps for the other leg.
I took it a step further and made little rips along both knees-
  • Wear the jeans and using your marker/pencil/chalk, note and mark where you want your rips to be along your knees and/or thighs.
  • Take off the jeans, lay it back on the flat surface and cut a small line along the mark you had made.
  • With your razor blade, cut a small line along your marked line where you're going to insert your scissors. 
  • Insert your scissors into the line you've cut and run it straight across your marked line, as wide as you like.
  • Lastly, using the same trick like with the hem, comb out the cut line with your needle, drawing out some threads.
That is it.
Watch out for a style post featuring this creation of mine.

So i enjoyed doing this and i think i might have a few more DIYs up my sleeves. 
I am also open to suggestions on what and what i should try for y'all, even for other posts here on the blog.
What kind of beauty and style posts do you like?
What would you like to see me post more of?
I will really appreciate any feedback i can get, so please help a sister 🙏
