Hey Glow Gang,

I hope October is treating you well. The rains are here and that means muddy shoes, lush green gardens to enjoy and lots of Nairobi traffic to tackle! I am truly grateful for the weather change, I believe the rains signify renewed hope after a challenging dry year.

Last year, I challenged myself to do a shoot at least once annually. I am glad I managed to get one in for 2019. Soft pinks, earthy browns and minimalist accessories are the creative concepts that tugged at my heart when figuring out my entire look. My eye makeup was the star of the show with bold shimmery champagne lids and a defined smoky outline. I kept my base makeup clean and my lips neutral, adding in hints of rosy pink and rich browns. As always, I bathed in highlighter for my signature glow!

I had lots of fun creating this look and I hope you enjoy the creation process.
