Simply put it’s the… RAE MORRIS INVISBLE MATTIFIER This invisible mattifier powder transforms my everyday makeup! I use it as a primer AND finishing powder. It not only extends the wear of my makeup, it controls shine throughout, and the science behind the formula is pretty cool: “The soft-focus, mattifying effect of this luxurious powder is due to silicone resin microspheres, which deflect light in different directions to create a smooth, even surface and blur imperfections.” – Cult Beauty I’ve been using it religiously and I’m so pleased with it that I had to share it with you!

EPARA x SHIRLEY B. ENIANG EPARA is a luxury skincare brand, founded by Ozohu Adoh. Ozohu discovered organic ingredients from Africa, and has carefully curated each product. It brings me great pleasure to know that this brand had someone like me in mind to create for, as a woman of colour. Beauty to me isn’t just limited to the outside, it comes from the inside too, and one of the reasons why I absolutely love this brand, is because of the origin of it’s creation.
