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’. The award show took place on the 22nd of June at the Utalii Hotel, Nairobi. The nomination came as such a surprise to me and I am so grateful to all of you for consuming my content, interacting with me on Social Media and for taking the time to vote for my blog! We didn’t bag the award this year, but the nomination is already such a big win for me. I appreciate all your love and support.

‘Classic Chic’ is how I would describe my hair and makeup look for the night. An elegant updo with cascading curls was my hairstyle of choice. For my face-beat, I went for a soft copper smokey eye paired with a foxy red lip. I remember looking in the mirror and thinking “What a babe!” Needless to say, I did look pretty amazing.
