I adore the way this look came together. I used 2 different pallets from BH Cosmetics (2nd edition and 6th edition) and I’ve got two different colors from ColourPop Cosmetics on the lips, More Better and Bianca.

Bianca

So Wavy


These matte lippies are great together! Perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Black Head Scarf & Pink Pout

Hey Luvs!

So I know that spring isn’t quite here yet but I am so ready for the season change. And although my wardrobe still says winter I’ve been bringing in not so subtle hints of spring with my makeup!


I adore the high contrast in the colors with this look.


Of course the eye shadows are all from my 2nd edition BH Cosmetics palette and on the lips is a simple black liner combined with a beautiful pink from the Wet ‘n Wild Matte Liquid Lipstick line called Too Tulip To Quit



The headwrap is just a simple black scarf. If you’re interested in seeing how I tie my scarves you can check out a tutorial here


Well, that’s it for now!

Earth Tones For The Win

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!

Holiday Glam

Happy Friday!

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!

Bringing in Color for Fall

Hey Luvs!

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.

Secure Twists & Risque Lips

Happy Monday!

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!

Easy Daytime to Nighttime Hairstyle

Hey luvs!

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!

Scarf Season

Hey luvs!

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!

Halloween Spider Makeup

Hi luvs!

I always consider Halloween a great opportunity to get super creative with my makeup. Last year I did a little spider web eye. It was pretty subtle but still fun and creative.

This year I decided to take the spider web action up several notches. I did some research on Pinterest and found this extremely impressive spiderweb makeup by MadeULook by Lex.

I love how crazy realistic this look is! I totally felt like trying to recreate this was way out of my league, which frankly made it perfect! I love a challenge. It’s the only way to improve. I used a simple black eyeliner pencil by Jordana and a few shadows from my bh Cosmetics palette. Here’s where I ended up

Although lacking a lot of depth I was very happy with the final look which I completed in 30 minutes. I used part of Zakai’s nap time to do it and that’s all the time he gave me.

Had tons of fun with this spider web makeup! Zavien was a pretty amazing looking Ninja. He was totally in character. 


Zakai wore a batman onesie, but of course I didn’t snap any pics before daycare (uugghh!) 

They both had s great time and of course we have tons of candy to show for all the fun tHey had.

Looking forward to next year!

XOXO
