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!
This week I decided to take one of the products from the October curlBOX for a drive. Of course curlBOX leveled up AGAIN with this months box and featured all full size products from one of my favorite product lines EVER! Quenching Coconut Curls by OGX.
I’ve been raving about this line for a year now and we’ll, nothing has changed! This is the most moisture rich live I’ve encountered. The products have so much slip and leave my hair hydrated and soft.
This time I decided to go with one of the products from the line I don’t use that often, the Curl Styling Milk.
I also decided to work with stretched hair which is also something I don’t do very often. The results were well…
Pretty awesome right!? Of course I have a talk through as I discover the results myself in a YouTube video. Check it out here.
Today I’ve got another fall Hair and makeup look I hope you’ll enjoy. The makeup is starring the beautiful color of burgundy, and the hair is a quick, creative and captivating roll/twist combination updo.
I really like the way this entire look came together. If you’d like to see the deets on the makeup, click here. And, if you’d like to see the step by step for the hair, click here.
That’s it for now! Until next time luvs
Happy Thursday Day!
Last week I decided to try for a super bold look starring the beautiful color of teal. I adore this combination of blue and green. I wore it a lot in the summer and wanted to find a way to bring it over into the fall season. I tripled up on the color which may seem like a bit too much but I couldn’t have been more happy with the way it turned out.
For the eyes, I used my BH cosmetics 120 color second edition palette. With a combination of three different teals, I built on the colors to achieve this look. My lip color is a combination of two NYX Wicked lippies, Scandalous and Risqué.
My messy twist out and red and blonde hair color helps complete this dramatic fall look. I adored this look so much I’ll definitely be doing more monochromatic makeup looks.
That’s it for now!
If you’re thinking about taking advantage of the versatility of your natural hair this fall by straightening it I’ve got 4 different styles to help you level up your straightened hair. A lot of people often get easily bored with their straight hair. These styles will help bring a little fun and sophistication into your straight hair game.
From a casual side sweep to intricate updos these styles are sure to turn heads. Take a look at these styles!

Who doesn’t love purple!? This color is gorgeous in any season, but there’s just something about fall that makes me fall even more in love with it. Today I want to share a look I did recently starring this beautiful color and some big curls.
I absolutely adore this look. That purple is poppin and I love big curls. Here’s the step by step on how I got the hair:
1. Apply 5 in 1 Miracle Styling Creme by Lottabody to dry stretched hair.
2. Section hair. The larger the section the larger the curl.
3. Wrap the section of hair around your index finger.
4. Remove your index finger and wrap a piece of foil around the section of hair securely.
5. Put the foiled section in between a hot flatiron. Press and hold for 10 seconds.
6. Release and repeat. When you’re done it’ll look something like this
7. Next, remove the foil from each section to reveal the curls
8. Lastly, separate and style to your liking.
I LOVE this quick and easy method to get some gorgeous curls.
As for the purple lip, I used Be-Dazzled by ColourPop Cosmetics and for some shine I added an overlay of Purple Pop by Jordana. The combination was life.
This entire look was so pretty and perfect for fall to me. What’s your favorite hair and lip color combination for fall?
I hope you all are doing great. I have been over here struggling. I’m so excited about the fall season but my allergies are driving me crazy. I haven’t been up for much of anything but I’m trying to work my way back.
Today I wanted to share a regal look I wore a week ago starring A beautiful statement choker I got from Forever 21 when I was in New York. I pared it with a high twist out pompadour and an olive colored beat.
I absolutely love this look and this choker just sets it off. You can find the choker here. If you’re curious about the lippie it’s a nyx Wicked Lippie called Trickery.
Well, that’s it for now.
I hope you all are doing well. Late last week I dove into my September curkBOX which was full of products by Lottabody.
Four full size products plus some other goodies all for just $25!! The value of this box from month to month is seriously amazing.
I decided to go for a bantu knot out using most of these products and of course filmed a demo and review. Before we jump into the video, here is a look at my bantu knot out results.
I achieved the perfect balance of texture and curls! Click here to see how so got this look.
