Orange and Cobalt Blue Makeup Look

Hey Glow Gang,

It’s been a chilly couple of weeks and I decided to warm it up with this warm and vibrant makeup look. I have always loved how orange complements my ‘melanated’ skin.

It’s been a while since I played with bold shades and I can’t wait to create more colourful makeup looks for you! (more…)

My Hair & Makeup Look – BAKE Awards 2019

Hey Glow Gang,

I am so glad to be back with another makeup-related post! I love getting dolled up, especially for an event. It was such an honour to have Maya’s Glow nominated for the 2019 B.A.K.E awards under the category, ‘Best Hair and Makeup Blog’.
