Use coconut oil– Commonly known as Adi Agbon in rural Yoruba villages across Nigeria, Coconut Oil has the ability to do wonders for the skin and has health benefits when ingested or used as a replacement for most cooking oils. Traditionally, Coconut oil was used by the local kinsmen as a moisturizer and is known to

rehydrate the skin after every application. Winter is generally a season for dry skin; with cold air outside and overheated air inside, your skin needs constant hydration. House of Tara has created a Makeup Remover infused with the coconut essence that soothes the skin, opens pores and leaves your skin refreshed.

Add some sparkle with our Queen Amina of Zaria Eye-shadow Palette – Queen Amina was the Hausa Warrior Queen of Zazzau (now Zaria) in Kano state, Nigeria. Amina is remembered for her fierce military exploits and is generally credited with building the famous wall of Zaria. A fierce leader and legend, Queen Amina inspired our festive 12-piece eye-shadow palette with vibrant Christmas colors like silver, red, green, bronze, peach and gold.

Youthful Beauty – With over 500 dialects across 36 states in Nigeria, the phrase “youthful beauty” has several names in different dialects. Our trio-eyeshadows all share the same meaning- Uyayi is Ibibio, Omoge is Yoruba and Feroshawa is Kanuri for a young, pretty girl. Each product name and color pigment is carefully chosen to make women feel young and radiant.

Know your skin type – The best guide to complexion perfection is to understand your skin type. Use products that are made for your skin type- whether it is dry, oily or combination- you need to know what works best for you! It is also important to use products according to the seasons; what works in cold weather may not work during the summer. Our cream foundations give you that flawless, velvety glow during winter because of its water-based properties.

The magic of Ombre Lips – To add a bit of sophistication and color to your holiday-inspired little black dress (LBD), try creating an Ombre lip.
