Hey Loves,

Welcome back to another edition of MAKEUP EXPLOSION FRIDAYS….I challenged myself this week to do a traditional inspired bridal look. This look is majorly for the AFRICAN BRIDE who embraces loads of colour.

The accessories that inspried this look is from and this was the exact set I wore 3 years ago when I was getting married.

This goes to show that if you keep your accessories properly, it can surely last a lifetime.

This set is an IYUN/CORAL set (real coral and very expensive) with gold accents. I wore this set with a brown, gold and orange attire during my wedding reception in 2012.

The beauty about Coral beads is that you can combine it with any colour, any fabric and any look and it will still stand out and steal the show. It is an all rounded bead that looks amazing on anything.

I really wanted to step things up by doing a bright, colourful eye makeup look that would stand out in any wedding party. I hope this inspires brides to break out of their shell and embrace something more fun and bright on their wedding day.

If you would like to place an order for a custom made set like this, please send an email to
