 What do you think when you hear the word turban?No makeup?Ashy lips?Cover body?hehe!Don't mind me.
Nigerian women have made the turban trend a very glam one and because I'm a late comer I'm just jumping on the wagon.

 My younger sister and I went to the market and when we were done we passed a man selling a mountain heap of turbans,different textures,styles,colours.They looked beautiful so I stopped to price.You know when you don't really  want to buy something you can drag N10 with the person.lol!We were dragging N100 and I told the man not to bother that I didn't want it anymore even when my sister offered to pay up the N100.hehe!

Fast forward to the next day I kept thinking let me just buy it and try it and here we are.The man's price didn't change btw!!lol! #StubbornSomebody

For this look I wanted full on glam,stacked lashes,glitter,a cut-crease of some sort and then toned down lips just because..I don't know why.

The glitter matches the turban..I know!It was planned.
I also have a video I'll post soon on how I tied it as a beginner just in case there are any jjc's like me in the house.

That very smudged liner effect is something that's close to my heart only I forget to do it most times.It also has a very Arabian/Northern/Middle East vibe.
