I love Robyn Fenty

There a million adjectives that come to my mind when someone utters the name “Rihanna.” Fierce. Strong. Electric. EPIC.  are just some of the few and describe exactly how I felt when I attended her concert this weekend. I seriously love Rihanna and her concert just made me love her that much more. Everything about her is on point, from her amazing voice, to her music which has gotten me through some of my best and worst times in my life, her fashion, her IDGAF attitude, her swag…I honestly could go on and on and on. But I honestly appreciate an artist that is genuine and is serious about her work and let me tell, my girl Robyn works hard AF! Like seriously, just looking at her and how she’s impacted the world motivates me to do the things that I want to do and be the person I ultimately want to be. I’m a Rihanna fan till the death of me! #rihannanavy all day…erry day.

Beauty Diaries- A Bright Purple Lip

You are gonna need a MAC lip liner called “Magenta.”
MAC lipstick called “Strong Woman.”
and a Buxom lip gloss called “Purple Haze.”

Here is what the swatch looks like
The lip gloss is on top, the lip stick is in the middle and the lip liner is at the bottom. 
It’s important to note that you dont necissarily need all three products to get this look. The lip stick and the lip liner can each be worn alone for a great matte look! But, I use all three for a maximun effect.
Step one- Line lips with lip liner and fill them in to create a base.

Step 2: Apply lipstick

Step 3: Apply lip gloss…and voila!

The multitude of shades makes it bright enough to pass for a bright pink and a purple, depending on the lighting. 
Hope you guys liked this post, and try out these products for a bright purple lip look! I personally love to wear this color with a clean face and dark eye liner. 


Black is Beautiful

In light of recent posts written by big time celebs Kelly Rowland and Brandy
about the struggle to embrace their beautiful dark brown skin, it reminded of a post I wrote awhile back titled “You’re Pretty…for a Dark Skinned Girl.” I too, have struggled with having dark skin. I was blessed enough to have an amazing mother who told me how beautiful I was and did little things like only buying me black Barbies so I could see representations of beauty the world that looked like me. However, it was the rest world that would continue to try and convince me that my skin wasn’t beautiful. But eventually, I was able to come to a point in my life where I said f*ck ’em, if people can’t appreciate what I have to offer then they aren’t worth my time. I think all shades of brown are beautiful and hope that one day they are all celebrated equally. 
Those posts inspired me to start a Beauty Diary series, featuring beauty products that I love, that look great on women of color..especially darker skinned woman. Growing up I’ve had such a hard time trying to find colors that actually looked good on me. So…stay tuned, I love makeup and will be sharing all my beauty loves!!
