Hey guys and gals,
Welcome to another make up look, I am on a row right? please keep commenting and watching my videos, it encourages me to keep keeping on :).
So for this look I really wanted to concentrate on that business/work chick look. I have been asked by a few people to do a look like this (especially for a woman of colour) but to be honest, this look would work on any DIVA! trust me. 
The look boasts of  a dewy skin which will give the impression of youthful healthy skin and minimal eye make-up. I took the opportunity to try out a few new foundation and powder goodies that I recently purchased from BLACKUP cosmetics. I have been meaning to try out the brand but Life kind of got in the way if you know what I mean.
To successfully pull of a Simple but POW Business/Boss lady look, you will have to seriously work on your base, get that looking flawless and the rest is history. I actually tried out the look using MAC Cosmetics foundation, powder etc but after a while my face just look cakey, ashy and stressed. I would recommend reaching for a foundation and powder that has a little bit of a RED undertone to it (to give the illusion of a warmer friendly looking skin) you can always even it out with a powder if you feel it looks a bit weird. 
The Tutorial is pretty simple and self explanatory so go ahead and click on the video to watch 🙂
Skin prep: Fully ex-foliate and moisturise your skin so that the foundation sits beautifully.
