HOW TO: Wear Beaded Accessories 3ways| Purple Smokey eye makeup tutorial| Feat Dose of Colors PURPLE RAIN & African GELE

Hey Loves,

Welcome back to another edition of MAKEUP EXPLOSION FRIDAYS….This week it is about An AFRICAN INSPIRED purple smokey eye, perfect for any bride or wedding guest.

I was inspired by the new fad of pinning a broach to the GELE instead of wearing a full on necklace piece so I decided to rock a 2 crystal sets from so as to show you how to rock accessories 3 ways.

The accessories are from, this particular set is a 3piece beaded set comprising of a 5layered necklace set, a pair of earrings and a bracelets all boasting of gold accents and different shades of PURPLE.

Here I am wearing it with the traditional Nigerian Gele (also supplied by, this look will be perfect for a traditional marriage look or a wedding guest look. 
You can pair this look with a lace iro&buba, silk iro&buba or even white or purple ankara.
This look is great for that simple touch of elegance. I know a few people who get a bit overwhelmed with the full on accessories so this is definitely for you. 
The set comes with a beaded bracelet, a matching pair of earrings and an eyechatching pendant that you can pin to your headtie/Gele.
For us non wearing, Gele Phobic people (lol) this one is for us). 
I truly detest wearing Gele personally as it gives me a huge headache (looks good on me though) so most times I wear my full Accessory sets on english attire. 
I wear them on dresses, jeans, suits, you name it, I have done it and I always get highly complimented on it. 
Don’t be afraid to enjoy your own sense of style.
