Good morning luvs,
What is it about simple neutral colors and earth tones that can make you feel so glam? Never mind red lips and tons of color (as much as I love color). Sometimes all you need are earth tones for the win. Check out this look I did full of beautiful neutrals.
I love how this look pops! The lip and eye combination just radiates. On the lips are two beautiful colors, Take it like A Vamp by Wet n Wild and Molten Bronze by Black Radiance.
The eyes of course are all compliments of my BH cosmetics 120 color palette, specifically the colors to the left of this level of the palette
The earthy colors are so beautiful. This definitely has to be one of my all time favorite looks.
Well, that’s all for now!
Hi beauties. Today I’ve got my first holiday look for you guys. It’s super adorable and features a really pretty glow and curls.
Typically my Twist and curls are pulled in my face but this time I wanted to do something a little different. I went for a part down the middle and loved it! You can check out how I styled my hair here.
For my makeup I went for a nice glow and a pop on the lips. Wet n wilds liquid matte lipstick in the color Take It Like A Vamp is the darker shade and I filled in the middle with Rimmel Light Year from the Show Off collection.
My shadows are all from my BH Cosmetics 120 color second edition palette. And the glow, the glow is compliments of the Maybelline Contour V duo stick which has some great illumination in the highlight side.
I topped off the glow with my NYX Pro Highlight and Contour Palette. Love the way it all came together A nice balance between glam and super cute.
Well, that’s it for now!
Happy hump day. As much as I adore fall and darker colors sometimes I miss the brightness of spring and summer. Recently, I found a way to bring them together with one statement piece. A scarf.
As beautiful as this scarf is, I would have never picked it out for myself. My sister gifted it to me last Christmas and I finally brought it out. The orange and brown are quintessential fall, but that pop of teal screams spring and summer. Together they are everything!
I paired the scarf with super cute orange earrings I think I found at Forever 21,!neutral eyeshadow and a big pop on the lips with one of my favorite NYX Wicked lippies, Scandalous.
This scarf just pulled everything together. I have got to find out where she found this beauty! Well, that’s I for now.
This Morning I wanted to share a super cute geeen makeup and secure protective style using my signature Twist, Pull & Pin technique. I adore the way this look turned out.
The hair is a combination of 4 flat twists and ai added some hair jewelry for a little more flare. With the use of a little edge control and by wrapping it up every night with a Satan scarf this style can probably last a full week with no problems.
If you’d like the step by step watch the full tutorial here.
Oh! And as for this monochromatic green makeup look I used my usual 120 color BH Cosmetics Palette. And the pretty green lippie is from the nyx cosmetics Wicked Lippie collection and is called Risqué. It’s crazy bold but beautiful, I think.
Well, that’s all for now!
Don’t you love Styles that are super easy to transition from day to night? Well, tonight I want to share a style like that with you guys. The day time look are some super cute double twisted buns and four Bantu knots.
I love how this style is so adorable but you can still slay wearing it. I think this is great for a casual family day out, or maybe just running errands. Whatever your day time plans are, you can easily transition this style into a more sexy nighttime style by simply unraveling the Bantu knots up front to reveals some gorgeous curls.
Give this easy daytime to nighttime style a try. Well, that’s all for now!
Tonight I want to share a review and demo I did for Design Essentials. They sent me some products from their Coconut & Monoi line and I had a lot of fun styling my hair with them.
Check out this gorgeous hair I achieved with their Deep Moisture Milk Soufflé and Deep Moisture Oil Treatment.
I wore these curls for a casual day out with my sister and nieces who came to visit last week. They were pretty much EVERYTHING!

Sometimes your hair just needs a break, you know? I recently decided to give my hair a reprieve from styling by installing mini twists, my favorite protective style.
Before I actually install the twists I prep my hair with a 3 step process.

After these steps I then install my min twists. Of course I’ve got a video going through each of these steps in detail. Click here to get all the deets on how I prep my hair for Mini Twists. That’s it for now!

So, technically it’s scarf season, however, here in Georgia we’ve been getting up to between the mid to high eighties every day! That’s entirely to hot to be wearing a scarf, but not too hot to incorporate it as a head wrap. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing. Check out these super cute looks starring traditional scarves tied as headwraps.
These looks are perfect for me on wash days or when I’m in a hurry and have to chose between my makeup or hair. Plus, I love how each of these looks still fit the fall season without making me hot in this crazy 80 something degree weather.
Each of these scarves are tied exactly the same and of course I’ve got a tutorial to show you just how easy it is. Check it out here.
That’s it for now luvs! Happy Friday!
