Brown Girl Beauty Pick: Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Blush

Black Radiance Blush Self

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.

This or That: Summer Beauty

Summer is sooo close I can feel it. Besides being excited for warm days and beach trips I’ve been LOVING changing up my makeup look.

Her Life: Blogging, Thoughts, + Other Ramblings

Her Life-Blogging, Thoughts etc

Loves! I’ve been meaning to write this post for so long. Just about my thoughts, the blog, and other randomness that is THIS brown queen. I know I wrote a little while back about how I was missing but I promised I’d be back and better, but then nothing. Lol please forgive me loves. Don’t charge it to my heart! I guess I’ve just been feeling different about what’s really important here. I love blogging about my beauty obsessions and love for all things pretty. Seriously, it is like the ultimate combination of everything I love to do. I think in this mainstream blogging thing and the pursuit of just trying to keep up it’s easy to lose yourself and the focus of the goal.
