It’s that time again when var­i­ous styles and looks are be­ing ei­ther re­vamped or launched. Though we do not nec­es­sar­ily fol­low the Bri­tish weather, our looks and styles stay cur­rent with the global fash­ion cal­en­dar. For Spring/ Sum­mer 2018, FUNKE BABS–KUFE

I know we don’t fol­low the Bri­tish weather per se as we don’t have Spring, Sum­mer, Win­ter or Au­tumn. But when it comes to the global fash­ion cal­en­dar, we tend to ad­here to its fash­ion dic­tates. So with the Look of Sum­mer 2018, it is only nat­u­ral that we take note and reshuf­fle our wardrobes to get with the pro­gram so to speak. The good thing is, these are looks that can re­ally last all year long be­cause we are not at the mercy of the bit­ing cold of win­ter! The worst we can get in this part of the world is rainy sea­son and with such weather, we usu­ally stay away from pants or maxis. What I like most is the wide va­ri­ety of choices show­cased in this edi­tion. So there re­ally is no ex­cuse to not ‘get the memo’ next time you are step­ping out. Aside from be­ing on point when it comes to clothes, there is an­other area that can be a bit of a bother if not done prop­erly. Have you ever seen women whose faces seem ‘to leak’ when the weather is hot and hu­mid? It lit­er­ally looks as if their faces are melt­ing and no mat­ter how much they pat it down with what­ever comes in handy at the time, the leak­age never seems to stop. And you stare at them won­der­ing why their faces have‘given way’when other faces next to them are still in­tact! What it sim­ply means is that they are not us­ing the right foun­da­tion. Our Foun­da­tions For Hot & Hu­mid Weather shows the var­i­ous types of foun­da­tions to use to avoid such em­bar­rass­ments next time. Not only do they have stay­ing power, they give you the added smooth­ness and glow to keep you look­ing well put to­gether. Af­ter all said and done, a woman has to know how to get her­self ready with the most min­i­mal fuss es­pe­cially if you don’t have the lux­ury of time. In the re­cent The Head­ies Award 2018, the host­ess, Seyi Shay re­port­edly changed five times through the night. Now, that what I would call well syn­chro­nized tim­ing. All the looks were not only dif­fer­ent but so were the hairstyles! If she can do that within a short space of time, I see no rea­son why it should still take some of us women hours to get ready. It is one of my pet peeves I must ad­mit.
