We at The Other Style are always excited when we find material specifically created for women of colour, especially if they are beauty related.
We bring you a beauty tutorial by Deola Adebiyi of OmogeMuRa in which she shows how to get a ‘clean beat’ look with as minimal make up and time as possible.
What is the ‘clean beat’?
The term grew out of the nude look that has become de rigeur in the fashion industry spurring brands like MAC and Bobbi Brown to create make up products that closely mimic the natural skin tones of the wearers. This trend has been popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose after the heavily contoured look went out of style in 2014.
Fashion has had a tenuous relationship with make up, choosing to cake on the colour one period and eschewing it the next. Most famous was the Natural look trend of the late 90’s to early 2000’s popularized by models and situation comedy stars. Back then the emphasis was on lighter skin tones and few dark skinned women were able to get in on the trend.
The good thing is now, the trend is open to everyone, there are even Nigerian brands like Kayge cosmetics and TAOS inc who are creating makeup palettes for Nigerian skin tones. Progress, if you ask us. Deola of Omogemura takes us through her look which is mostly a heavily lined eye, slightly contoured cheeks and a nude lip. Easy peasy to replicate.
