This makeup look makes me feel all warm and nostalgic on the inside.
The color palette and vibe take me back to growing up in my beautiful country (Benin, where I was born and raised for 9 years) and eventually traveling with my family to experience different cultures, even if it were within our continent.
I can see my young hands devouring the fresh mangoes of my mother's home country Guinea, skipping through the deserts of Mali and sneaking cola nuts of Cotonou in my pockets. The sun beaming over my dark skin and the warm breeze cooling off my sweat.
There's just something about being born and raised in African that makes me beam with so much pride for my melanin, culture and continent.
No matter where I go, Africa lives within me.
Within my soul.
This isn't just a tutorial, it's an homage of where I've come from and where I am going- so I can make my continent proud.
