>Make up

>Many women love make up. I love make up too. My policy is less is more, although I have had my moments of outrageous eye make up lol. Now all I really need is my eyebrows defined, my foundation and some lip color and I’m good. This way, I still look like me :). Once in a while I add some color to my lids. Most of the time when I put color on my lid, all I put on my lips is a lip balm. So this is my make for beginners blog. I am definitely not a professional people, this is what I do okie dokie, you can try it out if you like :).

Make-up 101
What every beginner has to have (in my opinion)
1. eyebrow kit, or you can just go and have your eyebrows professionally waxed by a professional.
I use the one by Benefit and a Victoria’s secret concealer palette.

2. lip color: You can pick any of your choice, it could be lip gloss or lipstick. Lipgloss is probably best for a beginner. Make sure you try it in the store and absolutely love it before you buy it. I love neutral tones on me, I do have a bright red that I wear when I’m feeling bold lol. My favs are:

Lip balms that I love

3. A good foundation (liquid and powder): This is optional, you can decide to rock your own skin tone with your eye and lips done. I do it sometimes. If you however decide to use foundation, buy a good quality one, one that will not break you out. You might have to break the bank a bit. I do not mess with my skin so I find that Mac works for me, I have also tried the Maybelline Dream mousse, both the liquid and powder and I love them, black opal also has good foundation for women of color.

4. Eyeshadow primer: If you plan to use eyeshadow, this is a must. It makes your shadow stay put alllll day with no creases. Urban Decay and Benefit are the brands that I use.

5. Eyeshadow: choose a neutral palette to start with as a beginner, you can introduce other colors when you get more comfortable.

6. Last but not least, make up brushes: there a ton of brushes for the face, however as a beginner, the eyeshadow brush and powder brush is all you need. I would add a liquid foundation brush if you want to use that. I use my fingers to blend in my liquid foundation.

I hope this was helpful. If you have any questions just post them in the comment section. Stay fabuloso lol bah byeee.

>HAIR

>Hair is one of my favorite things to talk about. It is a very important accessory in fashion. I do a lot with my hair and its just because I easily get bored with it. I have had a perm, done a big chop, grown out my natural hair, texturized, tried to grow it out again, and texturized again. 🙂 I know. Now I have a curly fro which is the result of an s-curl on natural hair. I love curly hair, I always however get bored with my hair and do something different to it. Many of my natural friends were disappointed when I put the s-curl in my hair but my policy is, so long as I’m happy with it, and I am taking good care of it, who cares really..lol. Here are some pics of beautiful curly natural/ chemically curled hair. Enjoy!!

>Color blocked

>Don’t know if you guys have heard about this trending trend for spring. It’s called color blocking baby!! At first I thought it was a bit extreme, but I’m afraid its growing on me lol. It basically involves wearing many different colors in the same outfit. Here are some examples, really cute, you guys should try it and you can even post pics so I can see :).
