One of the things I hear a lot from brown girls when it comes to makeup is, they don’t know how to use blush. From comments here to people stopping in me in the makeup isle to ask the same thing: Which blush should they wear? Another part of the brown girl struggle I suppose. And for good reason though. Blush is tricky! I struggle with it myself still sometimes and I have a product problem so you know it must be real.
Hey loves! I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve posted! Life has been throwing me through a loop so please don’t charge it to my heart. My Macbook needs a new battery which sucks so bad. On top of that I’ve been working on a few freelance projects that have me up insane hours of the night. Most days have been lip gloss, brows, and go so you know it’s real!
Oh happy day! It goes without saying how I excited I was about the new Shea Moisture cosmetics line. A couple weeks ago I started to see the first sightings on Twitter and Instagram. The new Spring collection had hit some Target stores and instantly my evening was laid out for me. Go to (every) Target store and get some! Well it was nowhere be found :(. I had just about given up that it wasn’t coming to Philly when I saw on the Shea Moisture Pinterest that there was a #sheaspotting at my local Target!
In the spirit of spring I’ve been doing some cleaning around the house and this past weekend the task was my makeup storage and organization…well at least part one of it (don’t judge!) and I found so many old favorites that have made their way to the back of my collection. It was like going shopping in my own collection! This was a perfect opportunity to pull out some old faves for fresh new beauty looks!
This past weekend was the weather I’ve been waiting for! Saturday was so pretty out. Just lovely. I was super busy, as usual this weekend but most of the day Saturday I was out running errands. Perfect day for simple makeup and bright colors. Continue reading
Hello loves! Today’s beauty post isn’t really a review so to speak but more just chit chat with my lovely queens. So what are we talking about? Lippies of course! Ya’ll know I love a good lip product! My day to day life has been pretty hectic and these days I find myself going bare skinned (sometimes BB cream) more often during the week. Be that as it may, one thing is still certain for THIS brown queen. And that is pretty much on any given day the bare minimum is brows, mascara, and lip product. If I don’t do ANYTHING else I do that! Which is why I’m writing about the amazing Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms.
