Judging from the title of the post, one would think I’ve got skin so smooth & a facial regimen defined to the letter that has helped in achieving such great skin. Or maybe if you’ve seen me more recently, you’re thinking “Hold up, her face doesn’t quite have that glow so why is she writing?”
Truth is, I’m writing to share the little I know and more importantly ask all you awesome people for your tricks! I’ve learned that you mustn’t wait till you know it all to share. It was only two years ago, that I learned what a facial wash is! (Don’t laugh!). So if I’d read a post like this earlier, then I wouldn’t have had to embarrass myself trying to figure it out, after a quarter of a century on earth!
I feel like it’s been mostly serious on the blog this past couple of weeks! From the little note on Prayer, to the STAR technique for succeeding in interviews, the post on breast cancer awareness and finally battling social media envy.
So, I was hoping for a bit of fun to usher us into weekend mood!
Have you ever wondered how well your husband or the men in your life knew about makeup? I stumbled on this in the blogosphere and I knew I wouldn’t let it go, till I had the husband give it a go!
And he was such a good sport about it. I laughed so hard at some of his answers, and I thought I’ll share. I simply asked him to define the terms and I’ve shared his exact answers! I also found a couple of funny quotes about men & makeup, so I’m throwing those in as well.
I thought he did pretty well – must be the effect of the YouTube videos I watched with him at some point. The definition of Mascara cracked me up, and when he defined highlighter, I’d have spilled my drink from my mouth if I had one at that moment! Plus did you catch his slight shade at my make up back in the days?
I asked him if he thought it the test was hard, and he said “Not really, just that there’s so many things I’ve never heard of before…”
What do you think? How well will the men in your life do?

pS: I think I finally have 6 empty makeup containers from, so I’m eligible for a free lipstick from MAC! I’m thinking of a red or purple shade. Any suggestions?
Is it weird to admit that I have only got professional makeup done three times – my civil ceremony, Nigerian traditional wedding and my white wedding! Oh wait, there’s one more – that freebie experience (where my makeup sort of looked like Lupita’s initially).
I think makeup can be great. In particular I think having very well defined eyebrows really does enhance one’s face. In this post, we talked about best tools to shave your eyebrows, and if there’s one thing I’m liking these days, it’s well groomed brows. (I gushed about all the fleek brows during the CV&Career Workshop.)
Yesterday, I woke up to a hilarious conversation on a WhatsApp group, where a friend was moaning about the pain of getting a Brazilian wax. I’d intended to write a post on body hairs so the conversation was perfect timing.
So, from the head to the legs, let’s talk about body hair removal, shall we?
