Whoever says dark-skinned girls do not rock has certainly not met this week’s style star. She oozes so much confidence Aretha Franklin would totally hi-5 her. She has the ability to take simple plain pieces from simple and plain to ooh-la-la. And Lawd does she know how to dress for her body type.
Our style star this week is Clarice Boateng!!!
360nobs loves her style. Do you? www.iamadamsel.com
Hair & Make-up
Hair: I have always had the regular long weave like everybody else, a few months ago I switched it up to the bop and I am now rocking my natural hair which I surprisingly love but I switch it up to braids every now and then.
Make-Up: I am not the best at make-up application but I try. The only thing that changes is my lipstick. I am the ideal MAC girl…lol
I do the basic foundation (match master), then draw my brows as natural as I can (Pur pencil and concealer). I then highlight under my eyes (MAC Pro long wear concealer and setting powder). I top it up mostly with natural eye shadow (Naked palette), MAC eye liner & mascara and then a shimmering blush (MAC rose) and cover up with MAC mineralize skin.
Your favourite place to shop?
Thrift stores are my to go places for my clothing, then comes Zara, Asos, H&M and Forever21. For shoes and accessories, I lean more towards Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth and Barneys.
The item you are addicted to?
I spend a bit when it comes to shoes I must confess. ‘I am a bad bad bad, need a rehab kind of shoeaholic‘, I get pairs anywhere as long as they get my attention and look good on my feet, and of course if I can afford…….then I gotta take ‘em home.
Your style icons?
That is undoubtedly Victoria Beckham. Isn’t it amazing how she can wear a regular t-shirt with jeans and accessorize with huge shades and pumps yet, we will all drool over the look.
Which celebrity Nigerian/foreign would you swap closets with?
I love everything Geneveive Nnaji wears, be it formal or Casual. She is such a classy lady and she has been an inspiration since growing up. In a foreign world I am starting to sniff bits off Kim Kardashian as well, just a bit.
What you would wear on the average day?
I am the edgy-casual kinda girl on a regular basis, a little black dress, a statement necklace, a pair of stilettos, huge sunglasses and a pop of red lipstick, you can never go wrong with that.
What you would never be caught dead wearing?
I am not sure really. I like to experiment with pieces I come across. So I know why it works so well or why it went so wrong.
