#LIPFIT2 : Up The Amp

Hello all!!! This is the second post from my #LipFit series :) If you are not familiar with what #LipFit is, it is a new segment that I have created where I discuss some of my favorite lipsticks and lipstick/ lip gloss combinations. Obvi by the title this post will be about MAC's "Up the Amp" Lipstick ^_^

In the following pictures I only have Up the Amp on my lips without any lip liner or lip gloss so that you can see the color in it's purest form. (In case you were wondering what lashes I have on, they are from the Ri Ri Hearts MAC collection #35 lashes)

Blue Lagoon

Hello all!!! This post is going to be about makeup!!! I wanted to revisit a look that I've done in the past (here) which is a blue smokey eye, nude lip, with a highlighted and contoured face. Since I originally created this look last year, I wanted to see how different it would come out with all of the new techniques that I have learned since then.

Beyonce / Ciara inspired asymmetrical bob

I been gone for a minute now I'm back with the jump off! lol. Hello all!!!! It feels like it's been forever since the last time I did a blog post! I knew when I wrote something new, it had to be a good one. This post is going to be about my hair!

A few months ago I went to "Made in America," where I had the privilege of seeing Muvah Queen Bey live whipping her blonde tresses up and down the stage. She sported a wavy blonde bob with highlights. I HAD to have that hairstyle! One of my friends told me about a woman who sells quality hair in Baltimore and has awesome customer service. I setup an appointment letting her know the style that I wanted and sent her pictures of how I wanted the extensions colored. I told her that I wanted a little bit of the root to show so that the install would look as natural as possible. I purchased 2 bundles of 14 inch indian hair, and a lace closure.

 I was extremely pleased to say the least with the final turn out of my hair. The color fit me perfectly and was exactly what I asked for. The cut was precise, the closure looks natural, and the customer service was superb. If I had any questions the owner was a call away.

So without further adieu MY HAIR!!!

How I fill in my brows



Materials:
  • 2 angled brushes (I believe I purchased both of them from Rite Aid, they are by Eco Tools)
  • Concealer brush
  • 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)
Bare with me lol this is my first tutorial, so I hope you were able to follow the steps in the video. If you have any questions or comments, let me know in the comment section below!

How I made/applied my first wig with a lace closure

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.
