I love days when I get a face beat and play dress up! I walk around feeling extremely glamorous, confident and delicious.
2022 has given me several opportunities to do just that with some of my closest girlfriends getting married.
On Saturday 29th October 2022, I was on the bridesmaids line up for a friend`s traditional wedding commonly known as Kuhingira among the Bakiga and Banyankole of Western Uganda.
We were informed to come early morning with makeup and hair styling done. I immediately called Yvette of Yvette Veve Makeup Spa located in Ntinda and booked an appointment for Saturday morning. I like Yvette working on me because she understands my desire for a natural makeup look always.
I woke up early on Saturday and rushed to the makeup studio. I found jolly and smiley Yvette ready for me.
Her space is the epitome of beauty dripping with luxury! Right from the outside, you`re welcomed with a green carpeted floor and wall with a garland of colourful flowers. Once you pull the door open, you`re quickly drawn into Yvett`s world of beauty and luxury. The mirrors on the walls beg you to catch a glimpse of yourself. The gold and mustard wordings on the walls and chairs add a pop of colour to the space.
Yvette with her infectious smile went about making me comfortable and sitting me in a chair, draping a black cloth around my neck all the way down to my knees to prevent make-up particles from getting onto my outfit.
She went around manoeuvring my facial lines and contours with a precision of a seasoned makeup artist. We were engaged in conversation on all things skincare and lifestyle in general while we were serenaded by a hot playlist of trending gospel songs. Now Yvette and her hubby are artists. You read right! So they know their music. She always has fire playlists playing at her studio.
Within an hour, my face had been transformed. I looked radiant and ready to go for a party. We took photos and I set off for my Kuhingira destination.
