It’s a big challenge to find a foundation that can withstand the heat, but also one that works well with oily, melanated skin. Guess what – it exists!
Hot girl Summer requires a Hot GIrl Beat…Here’s my best summer lipsticks!
A professional everyday look for your 9-5 job. Check out my morning beauty routine with affordable products and little hair maintenance for a stretched blowout style.
If you know or follow me, you know I love makeup! I was super excited when Shayla Mitchell, aka MAKEUPSHAYLA on Instagram had another collar with another affordable brand, COLOURPOP!
I love the visuals and merchandising, but from following her over the years, it’s extremely important to support women of color in the beauty industry and of influence and more importantly, those around, everyday.
The collaboration has a pallet, 3 lipsticks, lip gloss and 2 highlighters. I purchased the bundle (everything) for $59! Such a great deal!
The quality is extremely good for an affordable brand. The eyeshadows are as pigmented in person as they are on YouTube, easy to blend and the lips are extremely creamy!
Check out this look I did with roses and golds in the pallet, perfect for Mother’s Day. You can check out other looks on her YouTube channel. I’ll definitely be wearing this all summer!
Valentines Day falls on a weekday this year.
I have a record of being single on the day itself, so I’m accustomed to dressing for and taking myself out (even though I do during the year anyways…Spa day is DESPERATELY calling my name).
You can still dress flirty and appropriate for work or class. Check out this super affordable look I achieved mainly shopping on clearance racks.

Spread LOVE daily <3
Valentines Day is upon us…glam up for the night…or any occasion with this look.
Soft, flirty and feminine looks can be easily achieved and without using products that cost a fortune.
As much as I love watching Parks and Recreation and The Office on repeat, I equally love dressing up…like formally. Holiday formals are a great escape from my Office (self inflicted) prison.
The trick to a great gown is knowing what shape flatters your figure. I personally love trumpet and mermaid silhouettes because they enhance my petite figure. Actually, those silhouettes create curves 😏 and I love putting my clients in mermaid, column and sheath silhouettes for enhancing and/or slimming the figure.
With it being the holidays, everyone flocks towards reds, greens and glitter. While great colors, everyone is wearing them. I chose this stunning dark fuchsia gown and paired it with minimal accessories and a matching rose gold/plum make up look and wore shoes already in my collection.
I love fall makeup colors and I love looking snatched on the holidays…well any day. Check out my full face routine here with all the products I used on my face.
