This look is out of my comfort zone! I’m trying to bring color back to my eye looks and move beyond just neutrals and nudes. This time I was inspired by purple and created a look around that. Let me know in the comments if you’re liking this colorful look and be sure to give me a thumbs up if you like it! Also, subscribe to my channel if you’re not already. You don’t want to miss anything. (more…)
The holidays are upon us! I love seeing all the new makeup that gets released this time of year. It sucks that 97.8% of it is limited edition, but I still get heart eyes anyway. So many shades! So little time. This is by no means a full list of all holiday releases, just a few collections that are very high on my radar. (more…)
Halloween is coming! I know a lot of people like to turn all the way up for Halloween and go the whole nine yards with costumes. I’m one of these people from time to time, but this year I think I’ll be literally Netflix and Chilling. Though I don’t plan on trick-or-treating, I still want to be a little festive. The easiest way to have a little Halloween fun sans costume is with a little nail art. If you’re looking for a few chic nail ideas for Halloween, I’ve got you boo! (See what I did there?) (more…)
Sometimes you just want simple makeup with a big impact. This is why winged liner and bold lipstick is my go-to look when I need statement making makeup but can’t spend a lot of time applying it. This tutorial is a simple, but statement-making look that can be worn day or night. Nothing wrong with having a little fun with it. It’s just makeup! (more…)
Full disclosure: I’ve had both of these before. I had to toss them a few years ago when I was cleaning my makeup and never got around to replacing them. I was misguided in thinking that prestige makeup was always better than drugstore. Obviously, that’s not always the case because it’s some drugstore brands out here that are bomb and there are some prestige brands that put out a few products that are just a step above trash. I finally stopped playing myself and re-upped on these and I’m, so glad I did.
I don’t know if any of you watch Shark Tank from time to time, but I do. I like seeing the ideas that people come up with. It gives me encouragement that even if an idea that’s asinine to some people it can still be life changing to others. The panel on the show that ripped into two beautiful melanated ladies thought that the idea being pitched was asinine. It was VERY FAR from it. (more…)
So you thought those twistouts you were rocking all summer were cute until you were crying detangling your hair last week. Summer is over, your hair has had enough of your shenanigans and really needs some TLC. This usually means you need a good conditioner in your life. I’ve used so many different conditioners that I could recommend a solid 20, but I didn’t want to overwhelm you so I narrowed to four of my absolute favorite conditioners for soft, moisturized and shiny hair.
