Hold up, wait a minute! Let me sprinkle some #BlackGirlMagic in it! I was starting to think we’d seen the last of MAC and Taraji. But they’re back! Last year, we got a taste of auntie Taraji’s fierce yet sophisticated makeup style when she launched two campaigns with MAC. It all started with her first Viva Glam […]

Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder Swatches

August 10, 2017 | No Comments

You know something is good when it’s always sold out! I’ve been seeing the Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powders all over Instagram for months. But, sadly, couldn’t try them because they’re so dang hard to find. Almost impossible! Finding a store that carries Milani is already a struggle. Finding the Strobelight Instant Glow Powders was even worse. Who knew […]

Curly, kinky hair is beautiful! It’s versatile. It’s resilient. It’s unique. Like a magnificent crown. There’s so much you can do with curly, kinky hair–from natural coils to relaxed tresses. Yes, your kinky, curls are wonderful, girl! But they need moisture. Lots of it! We often get so caught up styling our hair that we forget to care for […]

Matte lips can be incredibly sexy and fierce. But I get tired of them. Sometimes the matte look starts to feel a little flat and boring. Summer is all about being fun, bold and taking chances. So why not do the same with your lipstick this season? Scratch those boring mattes and let’s get metallic […]

I love makeup just as much as the next girl. Just not so much in the summer. 🙈 There’s nothing fun about watching your beautiful masterpiece come together and then slide right off the second you walk outside. So tragic! You can always summer-proof your makeup routine by adding a matte primer, setting spray and switching […]

4 Foundations for Dry Skin

June 23, 2017 | No Comments

Finding a good foundation for dry skin can be a bit tricky. You’re leery of matte foundations because they can be drying and make you look casket sharp. Full coverage foundations can be iffy too. They often get cakey and leave you looking like Jim Carey in the Mask. Minus the green, of course! So […]

If you know me, you know I’ve struggled with pesky fine lines for years. They’re so annoying! I’ve tried pretty much everything under the sun to tackle my fine, dry lines. Countless eye creams. Tons of different moisturizers. Hydrating primers. You name it! Nothing really seemed to keep those pesky fine lines from catching my […]
