2 angled brushes (I believe I purchased both of them from Rite Aid, they are by Eco Tools)
An ashy brown matte eyeshadow (I used MAC's eyeshadow in Cross-Cultural, an alternative is the eyebrow kit sold at Walmart by Salon Perfect, or the eyebrow kit sold at Sally's Beauty Supply)
Dark Brown eyebrow pencil (I use Wet n Wild's ColorIcon brow pencil in Dark Brown. It is extremely inexpensive! I believe its only 95 cents!)
Concealer (I used MAC Select Cover-UP in NC45)

Below is my submission on what I believe true beauty is, as well as the link for you to vote for me ^.^
"Perseverance is true beauty to me.
It is why I am a 23 yr old, African American woman with a bachelor's degree working on obtaining a master's degree. Without perseverance I would still be a shy individual who was afraid of my own voice, and who felt like I would never be good enough.
But through hard work, sacrifice and commitment, I am where I am today. I persevered through everything that was meant to tear me down and came out on top. Now, my goals have no boundaries, and I embrace my inner voice. Perseverance taught me to believe in myself, what can be more beautiful than that?"
Hello dolls!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So this post is going to be on how I made my very first wig with a lace closure! WOOT WOOT! lol. If you follow me on any of my social medias you would have seen a preview of how the wig looked in the beginning stages.
This all began when I started thinking about my next hairstyle. I knew I wanted a sewin, but I did not want to sit for long periods of time to do it. I looked on YouTube and saw that a lot of youtubers were making U-part wigs. I wanted to try my hand at making one, so I went to the beauty supply store to pick up some materials and I saw a Remy lace closure. I always wanted to try a lace closure, so I thought instead of making a U-part wig I could add the lace closure so that I would not have to leave a lot of my hair out.
Whenever I do my sewin it literally takes me forever and a day lol, plus my leave out gets slightly damaged from flat-ironing it so much (I don't like a HAIR out of place!). I find that with this wig, I only spend 30 minutes to sew it down around the perimeter of my head, it lays flatter than my sewins, and I don't leave as much of my hair out.
Hello dolls!!! This post is going to be a review of my BH Cosmetics brush set I purchased earlier this year. I was trying to build my makeup kit and needed more brushes that looked professional, were of great quality, and inexpensive. While researching different brands I found this brush set on BH Cosmetic's website. Me being me, I youtubed this set to see if it received positive or negative reviews. At the time I could not find many videos on this brush set; however, the ones I did find gave this brush set a positive review. So I decided to take a chance and try this set for myself.
Hello dolls!!!! First things first, my laptop has been acting a donkey and I haven't been able to do ANYTHING! GGRRR!!! It's all good, I'll be getting her fixed soon ^.^ On to the post!
If you have been following me on twitter, facebook, or Instagram you would have seen the picture below of the different stages I take to highlight/contour my face. In this post I will be explaining the process in more detail, as well as the products that I use.
DISCLAIMER: I use the word BLEND like a million times in this post lol.....for good reason though because it is the key to highlighting/contouring.
