Product Empty: Model in a Bottle Setting Spray Matte Finish (review)

I’ve been using a makeup setting spray after every time I apply makeup for years. It has become the final and fixed step in my makeup routine, the last thing I do… always! If I skip it, my makeup just doesn’t look right and doesn’t last as long. The brand I’ve been using for about a year now is Model in a Bottle. I started out with their original setting spray and after I finished it, I quickly moved on to the formula for sensitive skin. Yesterday I finished my bottle, so I figured it would be a great time...

Beauty brands for/by women of color

In the previous post I mentioned that Lupita Nyong’o has been hired by Lancôme. Lupita will be the new face for the French cosmetic and skincare company and star in ads launching this September. She is Lancôme’s first-ever black ambassador! Meanwhile Kerry Washington is representing Neutrogena and Rihanna has been tied to MAC for a while. A lot more companies are using black celebrity spokeswomen to lure in consumers of color. This is major! I like it! Capturing consumers of color is a smart thing to do. Last year market researcher Nielsen reported that African Americans have $1 trillion in...

Lupita Nyong’o is on the cover of VOGUE!

In the beginning of the year Lupita Nyong’o took home an Oscar for Best Actress in A Supporting Role for her role in 12 Years a Slave, then in April she was named Lancome‘s new brand ambassador and now she graces the cover of VOGUE’s July 2014 issue. She’s officially having the best year ever! 😀 The beautiful Lupita is giving life to the new July ’14 cover of VOGUE magazine. And even though this is her first VOGUE cover, she’s definitely owning it! I love it. 🙂 Her gorgeous photoshoot was done in May in Marrakech (Morocco), shot by...

How I remove my makeup at night

Putting on makeup on is fun, but removing it at the end of a long day is even more enjoyable! 😀 Everyone has their own preferred way of removing their makeup. I’ve tried a bunch of ways, but I always start with a good makeup wipe. My all time favorite makeup wipes are ones that a friend gifted me once, they are the Cleansing Water Cloths by Japanese brand Koh Gen Do. They are AMAZING (the ingredient list alone will seriously make you drool!), but unfortunately kind of expensive (review). The wipes I’m using at the moment are the PS....

Break Up With Your Makeup Sweepstakes

As a blogger and beauty lover, makeup is something that I really enjoy, but it’s not the most important thing in my life. In fact, during the week there are days that I don’t wear makeup at all. When I know I won’t be leaving the house that day or when it’s really sunny out, you will easily catch me makeup-free or wearing just tinted moisturizer. No big deal! However, there are 16 million people in America alone who do feel self conscious and are afraid of leaving the house without makeup, because they suffer from rosacea. 65% of rosacea...

Review: Perfect Look Skin Miracle by This Works (a miracle effect tinted moisturizer!)

Being a mom means you’re always busy and it seems like you don’t really have time to do anything. However, just because you’re a busy mom, it does not mean you have to go out looking like a hot mess. There are ways to still look nice! That’s what I think, at least. 😀 In the last two years I did find out that when you’re a mom everything you do has to be efficient and take as little time as possible. I myself have been able to simplify my skin care routine and applying my everyday makeup now takes...

How to keep your toddler from getting into your makeup: get a key-locked makeup train case!

If you’re into makeup like I am, you know that stuff gets expensive! I have never really kept track of the money I’ve spent on makeup and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do that. I would just shock me! I also have no idea what the value is of my current makeup collection. There are people who know exactly how much their makeup is worth (for insurance purposes), but I’m not one of them. I’ll probably end up crying in the corner if I’d ever find out. The last couple of years I’ve been using more high...

Review: Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask by Pure & Essential Minerals

On Sundays I mask! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably know this. I try to have an ‘at-home spa’ day every Sunday, which usually takes about an hour or so. I apply a mask, scrub my feet, paint my nails…that sort of thing. By setting a specific day of the week, it makes it easier for me to commit to it. This is a review on the mask I’ve been really enjoying lately. It’s the Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask by Pure & Essential Minerals. This is a mask with pure Dead Sea mud and...

Long hair…don’t care! How I made my hair grow long

When I wear my hair down (which, honestly, I rarely do these days), I always get questions about how I got my hair to this length. I don’t know why, but apparently there’s this myth that African hair (natural or relaxed), doesn’t grow or grow as quickly as other types of hair. This is not true at all. All hair grows an average of ½ inch (about 1.25 cm) per month, but it’s how you treat your hair that determines how much it will grow. My hair, its texture and its color, is all natural. Right now it reaches the...

Beauty question answered: I’m black, do I HAVE to wear sunscreen?

Time for another Beauty question answered! Today’s topic is sunscreen and whether or not you should wear it if you are of a darker complexion. In short: the answer is YES! Find out why and how below. Mason helping his grandparents in their backyard. He’ll be 22 months in a couple of days 🙂 ​ It’s a misconception that black people don’t need to use sunscreen. A lot of people believe that dark skin has melanin (color) which provides enough protection. This is only partially true. Melanin does provide protection but not enough, about an SPF 15. Ultraviolet rays from...
