#MakeUpMondays – SHOOT REVIEW: Colorful Splash with SLEEK


First things first, we want to say a huuggee THANK YOU to all our followers, blog subscribers & friends in general on crediting us our nomination for ‘Fashion Blogger of the Year’ at this year’s Kenya Fashion Awards. We truly appreciate you by our side. Keep it locked with us as we keep you abreast on fashion news from our beautiful 254, Africa, to the world!

url It’s been a while since we last posted on the blog & despite intense press engagements on a couple of projects, we tried keeping up on a balanced act. We recently got engaged for the past two months in an intense re-branding sub-contract with Sleek MakeUP South Africa regarding press management and creative production of this colorful shoot project which was a humbling first for us.

All this achieved through the digital media power of Skype & Gmail as we spent tedious days & nights managing content from Nairobi & redirecting creative results to Jozi. Special appreciation to our friend & blog supporter, Tshepo Nkanyezi for getting us desired connects down south. God bless! 🙏

We linked up on consistent communication with both the creative team and Samantha after which we embarked to do digital retouch edits on a mixture of creative portraits that would capture the re-branding theme of the shoot project.
