How To  Cover Acne With Makeup http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/08/22/how-to-cover-acne-with-makeup/ http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/08/22/how-to-cover-acne-with-makeup/#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:49:24 +0000 http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/?p=208132 Applying make-up on top of spots might not make sense to some people, but it’s a lifeline for others. Help ‘fake’ that perfect complexion with this advice.

Prepare The Skin

It’s important to have a through skin care regimen that you follow every morning at night. At the very minimum, you should cleanse and moisturize your skin twice daily.

Before you put on makeup, Wash your face thoroughly and use a face-wash to cleanse your skin and wash away any dirt or impurities. Try to avoid a face-wash that exfoliates as they tend to irritate the skin and cause more redness. Use soft clothes and regularly clean your towels. Always pat skin dry – never run with a towel!

Use a non-greasy moisturiser to the skin; ideally it shouldn’t have an oil base, as there is no need to add more oil to the skin. Acne is caused by over active sebum (oil) production.

Applying Makeup

Once your face has been thoroughly washed and cleansed, use a primer as they have a silicone base that helps fill in lines and evens out the surface texture of the skin. It makes your makeup stay on longer and stays true to it’s actual colour.

Use an oil free foundation. Avoid overloading the skin with makeup to ‘cover’ up impurities as this will block pores and may encourage more spots in the future. Remember to find a good colour match concealer and blend it with your foundation. Just add a small dot of concealer and lightly tap it onto your blemish until it blends and looks natural. Use your ring finger it applies the perfect amount of pressure for applying concealer. Make sure your hands are clean first!

Applying too much concealer can make acne scars more visible or cause the makeup to look cakey.  Don’t choose a concealer that is lighter than your skin tone or you will just bring attention to the thing you are trying to cover up!

Don’t mask your face, embellish your makeup with gorgeous blushers, highlighters and colours to detract attention.  Be careful with bronzers and blushers as the fine particles in the powder can clog up your pores and create more blemishes and spots.

Apply eyeliner, eye shadows and mascara to emphasis your eyes, this will draw in attention to your beautiful eyes. If you’re out for the evening, use false eyelashes for a show-stopping look! lluminators and brightening products are great for the under-eye area, but if you use them on a blemish, they’ll draw the eye right to it.

Removing makeup

Face wipes are great to get rid of makeup in a hurry, but it does not help cleanse the skin effectively – especially when you have acne.

Always wash of all your makeup at night before you go to bed, and make sure pillowcases are regularly washes as well. This prevents any pores clogging up.

Tosin Ayeronwi, Talented Fashion Designer & Painter http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/07/25/tosin-ayeronwi-talented-fashion-designer-painter/ http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/07/25/tosin-ayeronwi-talented-fashion-designer-painter/#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:54:12 +0000 http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/?p=204459 Funsho Arogundade

In this generation of smart phone kids, internet, fast cars, clubbing and parties, it’s awe inspiring to find a teenager with lofty ideas and a positive mindset. 14-year old Ayeronwi Oluwatosin is one teenager doing great things.

Tosin as she’s fondly called at home and at school is indeed a girl of many parts. She is a super talented and super gifted young lady with limitless ambitions and dreams of being a world class fashion stylist, painter, celebrity and entrepreneur.

•Tosin

•Tosin

Personality-wise, she’s fun loving, comfortable, shy, intelligent and focused. However when it comes to her passion which is arts (fashion and painting), she’s super creative, focused and very determined to get to the very top.

“I love fashion as it is, because I feel it’s a way you express yourself, culture and what you love, and I find fashion as a way of getting away from people, it makes me happy as person to be able to do stuffs I love,” she said.

Like every other industry, the fashion industry is growing and it’s growing at an alarming rate too. And little Tosin has this to say about the growth.

“I feel it’s blowing up, people are stepping out of their comfort zone doing what they love, incorporating Ankara designs, and I can see myself growing with the trend too,” she enthused.

A visit to her studio where she designs at her parents’ home unveils yet another creative part of Tosin.

She draws and is quite good at it too. Her drawings cut across still life to abstracts that are simply best understood by her.

Her words: “Each drawing represents my personality. I am a teenager, so I always try to incorporate designs that people would love to wear. Designs that are fun and entertaining, I pick designs that are honest to my nature about what I do, I also like sophisticated designs that stands out, it makes you look modern and trendy”. As a budding painter, Tosin said: “I love painting, it’s also a way I express myself. It means different things to different people, but I just love the way it feels. When you paint you are able to express yourself”.

As the saying goes, the future belongs to those who dream and pursue their dreams, and for Tosin, she foresees a brighter future.

“In the very near future, I’ll be showing off my talent to the world. First of all, I’ll need to finish up my school and then start up my fashion business. I can see myself as a top celebrity in Nigeria and all over the world. I want people to notice and recognize my work when they see them,” she summed.

Smart, who is studying Accounting and Finance in the University of Reading and a long term fashion enthusiast, said the objective of the project is to promote fashion and support growth in the music industry by discovering talents who can stand the test of time.

“Fashion and music are always a great blend as we have seen in many different concerts, but the difference is that FAME brings exclusivity, style and class to the business. It gives the participants not only a chance to show what they do best, but gives them the opportunity to be scouted or recruited to kick off a bright career. Therefore, FAME will serve as a platform of career opportunities and brings about the reality of dreams,” she said.

Smart disclosed that entry forms for the event have been on sale from 14 July and applications would be made in two categories  —fashion and music. Submitted applications would be thoroughly scrutinized and successful applicants short-listed for training/audition which would be the utmost pre-condition for qualification into the finals of the event.

The training and audition sessions would entail all short-listed applicants both in fashion and music categories converging daily at a designated location where instructors for training and rehearsals would engage them.

Designed in the form of a reality show, contestants in the fashion category would be judged based on originality, creativity, modelling skills, style and modernization, while those in the music category would be judged on lyrics, beat, originality, audibility, and delivery.

Ten (best five in each of the two categories) would converge at the grand finale where the winner of the star prize would be chosen.

Emmanuel Ikubese: Mr Nigeria 2014

Emmanuel Ikubese, was on Saturday night crowned ‘Mr Nigeria 2014″ at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Ikubese, a 25-year old actor, got a car, a modelling contract, N1 million prize money and the opportunity to represent Nigeria at the “Mr World” contest in the Netherlands later this year.

He had to shrug off 19 other contestants to emerge winner of the annual contest, organised by the Silverbird Group. The event featured stage appearances in different outfits and performances by the 20 contestants.

The contestants appeared on stage in different attires and gave different artistic performances before being reduced to 10.

The hosts then took them through a question and answer routine before they reduced the group of 10 to five.

Austine Igwilo and Michael Amilo clinched the first and second-runner up positions respectively.

Ikubese said he would use his new position to be a good role model and to inspire millions of youths and encourage them to chase their dreams.

“I am currently part of a campaign against HIV/AIDS and I will also do my own projects. One of them is the fight against domestic violence because I have come across a lot of such violence in the news in recent times.

“The case of the man who stabbed his wife 72 times got to me and I decided to take it up. We are Africans and we are honourable men and beating our women is never a sign of our strength.”

Ikubese added that: “I want to get us talking about God-given innate African qualities again and encourage our men to be real men.”

Ikubese who studied International Relations at the United States International University, Nairobi, Kenya, hails from Kwale in Delta State.

Dencia slams Lupita Nyong’o again http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/04/08/dencia-slams-lupita-nyongo-again/ http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/04/08/dencia-slams-lupita-nyongo-again/#comments Tue, 08 Apr 2014 08:20:32 +0000 http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/?p=190499 Dencia, the whitenicious cream producer and Nigerian and Cameroonian pop star has hit out at Lupita Nyong’o for her new contract with Lancome, accusing her of bowing to ‘white people companies’.

In an angry tweet directed at the 12 Years A Slave star, she wrote: ‘Oh @Lupita_Nyongo cln’t talk abt the bleaching creams white people (Companies) make cuz the white man pays her, they own her!! [sic]’.

The comment comes just a month after Miss Nyong’o mentioned Dencia – who has been accused of marketing her own brand of skin-bleaching cream called Whitenicious – in a speech about learning to value the color of her own skin.

The pop star is no stranger to controversy; in a February interview with Ebony, she all but admitted that Whitenicious is intended as a skin-lightener, not as a cure for dark spots as it claims.

‘When you take that picture and you put a picture of Dencia darker, this is what you’re telling people – the product really works,’ she said.

‘And guess what? People really want to buy it. It’s what it is. I don’t really care.’

Given her defiant and hypocritical attitude, it’s no surprise the fiery singer was angered when Miss Nyong’o called her out in a speech at Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood event on February 27.

Youthful Grandma uses sperm as facial cream http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/03/20/youthful-grandma-uses-sperm-as-facial-cream/ http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/03/20/youthful-grandma-uses-sperm-as-facial-cream/#comments Thu, 20 Mar 2014 08:17:31 +0000 http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/?p=188712 A youthful grandmother, 67, has claimed that sperm facials are her anti-ageing secret – and she’s made a video tutorial of it. Stella Ralfini from London said semen facials hold the key to her eternal youth.

‘It’s worth thousands and thousands, but it’s free,’ she explains in a YouTube video.

‘All you need is a lover but if you don’t have one, you know what to do. All you need to do is, every ten days or two weeks, just both have a good time, make sure he has a good time, and when your beautiful love-making session is over, you are going to scoop this amazing sperm mask up in your fingers, put it on your face, leave it for fifteen minutes and wash it off.’

She goes on: ”I know some of you are thinking “What is she saying?!” but we have to assume that your lover is a healthy clean man and eats wells.

watch the video here:

British Stella, who describes herself as an author, life coach, couples counsellor and tantric guide, explains that she learned the bizarre anti-ageing trick during her time in India, where she was studying a lovemaking method called Tantra. She said she learned the trick from a woman in her sixties, who still looked youthful.

She said she has been using the sperm cream for 30 years.

My Life As Beauty Queen http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/02/28/my-life-as-beauty-queen/ http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2014/02/28/my-life-as-beauty-queen/#comments Fri, 28 Feb 2014 16:42:54 +0000 http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/?p=187189 Miss Genevieve Anaele was crowned the  beauty queen of Environment And Sanitation in Eko, Miss MBGE Environment, on 27 October and till next year, the number two queen under the registered trade mark, Most Beautiful Girl In Eko, MBGE, will use the platform to realise her childhood dream, which include helping the less privileged in the society and creating awareness about modern child slavery through her pet projects. Genevieve speaks on her life as a beauty queen.

How has life been since you were crowned queen? 

Although I have been restricted from being at certain places and doing some certain things differently, my life has been good as a  beauty queen. It has been a new experience for me.

What have you been doing since then? 

I won the crown in October. , last year. So, I haven’t really been on any tour. But I had been invited  for Face of Edo beauty pageant in Edo State in November, 2013. I was also at  the tenth anniversary of AfricaMagic and Ikeja City Awards in December. I am going on a tour of Ghana in May, this year.

Miss Genevieve: Crowned the  Beauty Queen of Environment And Sanitation in Eko.

Is this your definition of success? 

Success to me is achieving my goals. It’s also about making my life better than what it was previously. Material assets are not a measure of success. How you feel after achieving your goal should be the sole measure of your success. Being Miss MBGE Environment has opened doors for me and it is also giving me the opportunity to achieve my dreams.

What are your dreams? 

One of my dreams that is yet to be realised is being able to help the less privileged in the society. But I know that it is achievable now because  of the pet project that I am working on at the moment. It will soon be made public, when evertything is set.

Does it has to do with the girl child and what is your view about it?

For me,  child labor, human trafficking and prostitution among the girl child are a serious crime against humanity. The government must act fast and look for an effective way to put an end to these vices, which I call modern day slavery.

What is the motivating  factor? 

Genevieve is a nice, intelligent and easy-going young lady who  aims to  become a respected personality in the society. I want to contribute to the growth of this country, by affecting lives positively. My growing up was fun because I got everything I wanted as a child. I am the first child and we are just five in the family. My dad is into building constructions and my mum  is a business woman. So I grew up in a healthy enviroment and I wish the same for every Nigerian child who is the future of this country.

How do you relax?

I relax more with my friends and family. I also love  watching movies and reading.

What next after this?

I plan to participate in the next Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria,  MBGN or Miss Capital City Nigeria, MCCN, that would be organised by  Ereon Pageantry Nigeria. It’s a national pageant of all the 36 capital cities in Nigeria. I also plan to further my education because I dont think I can achieve any of my goals in life without being educated.

And I appeal to Nigerians to  stop stereotyping beauty pageant as a bad thing. It is a way of  promoting  tourism, beauty and culture of the country it is being organised.
