It’s my founder’s day so I’m feelin extra. 🕺🏾

If you don’t know, I’m a proud member of the Alpha Eta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.   💁🏽‍♀️

Joining this organization was one of the best things I did while in undergrad at USF. It’s how I met my line sisters 😍.

People will come and go in your life and that’s just how things are. But when you find a group of ppl who will always accept you no matter what, that’s really special. Me and my sisters are crazy, sexy, cool and most important we duh realest and duh triplets so we don’t give af. 🤷🏽‍♀️😂

& I love bragging about them because we have future doctors, social work specialists, nurses, lawyers and more 🤗. It’s also great to watch each other grow in our personal lives with family! 

Anyway, if you’re interested in joining any Greek Letter organization, I suggest you do your research and ask the right questions. Please understand that Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., is a non-hazing organization that fosters the principles of scholarship, service, sisterly love, and finer womanhood 💙. 

The Slay 💁🏽‍♀️ 

Now, let’s get into this look honey. We are talking about the Afrique Palette by Juvia’s Place!

Okay so I call this the Blu Blood Smokey Eye! Blu Blood because it’s blue and I’m a super Neo. 😬 

I love doing Smokey eyes with a good brown/orange-ish shade in the crease/transition. Feel like that’s what gives me that nice gradient affect when the colors blend into each other.  It’s the easiest way to mix the dark colors, and still look tasteful.

I know I look mad...I always look mad but I’m really funny and nice 🗣🙇🏾‍♀️

I used two shades for the transition/crease: “Kisi” and “Cameroon”. In the video at the end of this blog, you can see how I put on “Kisi” and followed it up with “Cameroon”

Then, I placed “Cotonou” on my lid and a little into my crease too. I blended it with the transitions colors after that. Once that was done, I put the Côte d’Ivoire shade over it but stayed closer the lid than the crease. The last color I used was “Angelique” for my inner corner. 

So I put more blue on the left eye, and I wish I would have went back and put more on the other one too but it’s okay 🤷🏽‍♀️

I like how there’s a plastic cover over the actual eye shadows. I’ve seen people receive damaged eyeshadow palettes that could be prevented with something like this.
