Beauty Tips: The 5 Shades Of Lipstick Every Girl Should Have

Every girl needs a great pout to finish off the perfect look. As a beginner, I wish someone told me to buy specific colours instead of me going wild and buying several shades of red. Well, I’m here to help you out and tell you the 5 shades of lipstick every girl should have in her makeup bag.
1. Red
Every girl needs a red lipstick. It’s beautiful and a great red lippie fits every shade of skin. My favorite one is ‘Funke’ from House of Tara. You can get a tube from any House of Tara store in Lagos and around the country.
2. Pink
Why should you have pink lipstick? Why shouldn’t you? Finding a nice shade to fit your skintone may be hard but when you find that perfect pink, you’re on your way to a perfect pout. Get NYX Butter Lipstick in Taffy fromThe Beauty Boon
3. Purple
I’ve always loved purple lipsticks because they are so different. A nice deep purple can add a ‘vanpy’ element to your makeup. Milani makes a beautiful purple and it is called Sangria. Get it atThe Beauty Boon 
4. Nude
For days when you don’t want to stand out, use a nude lip to tone things down. It’s perfect for work and for days when you don’t want your lips to be the star. Get MAC’s Velvet Teddy (a cult favorite) at any MAC store.
5. A wildcard colour
For the days you want to be bold, the days when regular colors don’t just cut it and for the days when your makeup is an extension of yourself, go for a cool wildcard color that you have never imagined yourself wearing. I couldn’t find any retailer in Nigeria that sells crazy colors but a color I want to try is blue! This lip tar is from OCC. Get it when you travel. Or force your cousin or aunty to get it when they travel.
Stay fab!

Gabon’s President gives entire inheritance to charity

Gabon’s President Ali Bongo has pledged to give his share of the inheritance from his father to charity and said his family was also handing over properties including a villa in the capital and two homes in Paris to the state.
Reuters reports that Bongo has led the central African oil producer since winning a 2009 election that followed the death of his father, longtime President Omar Bongo.
Ali Bongo made the announcement in a speech broadcast on state-owned television late on Monday to mark the 55th anniversary of independence from France. He said the decision was in honour of his father.
“All the revenues from my share of the inheritance will go to a foundation for youth and education because everyone knows – and I say it again – that the youth were sacred in the eyes of President Omar Bongo Ondimba,” he said.
The Bongo family’s wealth is believed to include millions of dollars held in foreign bank accounts, real estate and stakes in Gabon’s main industries.

 Gabon’s oil wealth has put its per capita gross domestic product among the highest in Africa and the World Bank ranks it as an upper middle-income country. However, wealth is unevenly distributed and many Gabonese live in poverty.

"They apparently sat at a table just the two of them," a source told TMZ. "They looked very engaged and like they were an item."

How 38 Year Old Consecrated Virgin Married Jesus In Indiana (See Photos)

On Saturday, an Indiana woman, Jessica Hayes, 38,  married Jesus, the son of God in downtown Fort Wayne and become a consecrated virgin.

Consecrated virgins are similar to nuns in that they live chaste lives. But they do not live in convents and they are not obliged to take on any particular work for the Catholic Church. 

Jessica Hayes, 38,  who is a theology teacher at Bishop Dwenger High School in Fort Wayne, said she decided to become an consecrated virgin after years of prayer and soul-searching. And for the
occassion, wore a wedding dress.

She says she will continue to live her normal life at home - only now she will not be able to get married to anyone else or to have sex for the rest of her life. 
'My students asked if they should call me Mrs. Hayes when I come back to school next week, and no, I’m still Ms. But I am married to Jesus.'  

As a consecrated virgin, Hayes may not have 'knowing and deliberately' engaged in sexual relations in the past. 
'I think that in some sense, we’re all called to be married. It’s just a matter of discerning how. So, my marriage is to Christ and someone else’s marriage is to their spouse,' she told WANE.

Saturday's ceremony was conducted by Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. He said:
'It seems most appropriate that Jessica gives herself totally to Jesus, is consecrated to a life of virginity.' 

Hundreds of people attended the service - most of whom were strangers to the bride. She said most turned up because they were 'interested' - and she was pleased with the turnout. 

Supporting The Ministry??! Obama Appoints New White House Official, She Was Once A Man! (See Photos)

The first openly transgender official appointed to serve in the White House is making history as she begins her new job today, the Obama administration announced.

Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, 28, is breaking barriers as the new outreach and recruitment director for presidential personnel in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel, according to the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE). Freedman-Gurpsan formerly served as a policy advisor for NCTE's Racial and Economic Justice Initiative.

While a handful of transgender people have been appointed to presidential commissions and boards previously, Freedman-Gurspan is the first openly trans appointee to work inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The historic appointment is being lauded by LGBTQ+ advocates, who say they're happy that the presidential administration is beginning to reflect the actual diversity of America.

"I am elated that Raffi Freedman-Gurspan will become the first openly transgender staff member at the White House," NCTE executive director Mara Keisling said in a statement. "That the first transgender appointee is a transgender woman of color is itself significant. And that the first White House transgender appointee is of a friend is inspiring to me and to countless others who have been touched by Raffi’s advocacy."

Police Arrest Aregbesola’s Aide Over Girlfriend’s Death(Photos)

A Special Adviser to Osun State Governor, Mr Bode Olugbore, has been arrested by the police over the death of his girlfriend, Miss Kemi Arobieke. A Punch correspondent gathered that Kemi, a graduate of the Lagos State University, visited Bode in Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Thursday, August 6, all the way from Lagos and promised to return on Saturday. 

The deceased’s elder brother, Ayo, who confirmed the death of his sister to our correspondent on the telephone on Tuesday, said Kemi had known Olugbore for about four years, but the family did not know about their relationship. The brother of the deceased said he, Kemi and Bode were members of the same church in Lagos adding that her sister said the suspect had been separated from his wife. He said, “My sister travelled to Osogbo and she was supposed to return to Lagos on Saturday, but we got a call from the police that she was involved in an accident and it was very serious.

 “We got to Osogbo but the police prevented us from seeing her only to be told that she was electrocuted. She was said to have been electrocuted by a Binatone fan, but it is unbelievable. “The current in a fan is not enough to kill, except one has direct contact with a live wire. The mark on her body suggests something contrary.” He said he saw Bode at the State Criminal Investigation Department on two occasions he went to the place. The deceased’s brother said the police had done the autopsy, but the family was still waiting for the police to give them the result. 

He said, ” We were told that Bode’s family will have to be present before they would give us the result.” The governor’s media aide, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, when contacted declined to comment on the matter. He said, ” It’s a police matter. You can get accurate information about whatever happened from the police.” Also, efforts to speak to the Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Folasade Odoro, proved abortive on the matter as calls put across to her telephone were picked but she refused to talk.

 After many calls to her other telephone, a male voice answered the call and told our correspondent that the PRO was not in the office but left her phone for charging. He promised that the PRO would call back when she returned, but she did not. Also, a text message sent to inquire about the case was not replied to as of the time of filing this report. 

Sunday Oliseh reveals why he ‘hates’ Jay Jay Okocha

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh, has spoken about his relationship with former team-mate, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha.
There have been a lot of speculations surrounding their friendship and it has been suggested that both men don’t see eye to eye. But while responding to questions by a reporter recently, Oliseh replied sarcastically: “Yes, I hate Jay-Jay,” before quickly adding “I hate Okocha because anytime we play tennis, he beats me. We played at the weekend at Sheraton Hotel and he defeated me.”
“We’re the best of friends and we played Tennis at the weekend.”
Rumours of rivalry between the two ex-footballers, dates as far back as 2002, when Okocha replaced Oliseh as national team captain to the World Cup in Korea and Japan.
Oliseh also spoke about how he planned to eliminate individuality in the Eagles team and promote team play.
“If you remember our victories in 1994 and 1996, it was based on individual talents. But we do not have such individual talents again. What we need to do is to play collectively. That is what obtains in Germany and Spain. It’s a lot of hard work. We’re here to do our best.” he added.

Wife Catches Pastor Hubby 'Grinding' Church Member

Mrs Doris Oseni has told a Customary Court in Ondo town that she caught her husband of 12 years, Prophet Femi Oseni on the floor of the church office, having sex with another woman.
The 42-year-old woman who is also an Evangelist has consequently asked the court to dissolve the marriage on the grounds of adultery, desertion and lack of love on the part of the husband.
She told the court that her husband’s behaviour towards her changed after seven years of their marriage with no child, adding that since then, the defendant had been sleeping around with different women, most of whom were their church members.
She added that after several days of abandoning her, she traced her husband to his church in a village not far from Ondo town. On getting there, she met her husband on the floor of the church office with one of the women in the church having sexual relationship .
She said she reported her husband’s strange behaviour to his mother but could not be stopped from his adulterous acts, saying she was fed up with the relationship. She prayed the court to separate them.
Doris also accused her husband of having a child out of wedlock, saying the child is a product of his extra marital affairs.

However, 45-year-old Oseni pleaded with the court not to dissolve the marriage, saying he still loves the woman, whom he described as a virtuous woman that had been taking care of him since he married her.
In his ruling, the President of the Court, Joshua Adunbi said the words and body language of the wife had shown that she was tired of the union, therefore ordered for the dissolution of the marriage .
On that note, Adunbi added that both parties were free to remarry any person of their choice and ordered the petitioner to pay the sum of N2,500 to the respondent as a refund of dowry.
He however noted that anyone of them who is not satisfied with the decision of the court could appeal the ruling within 30 days.
