MAC MATTE LIPSTICK COLLECTION: THE BRIGHTS

mac lipstick for dark skin

I am a HUGE lipstick girl.  I love all types of lipstick, from matte to satins, and I have tried a very wide range of them from different brands…but I always come back to MAC.  I love the quality and consistency, and I have to admit, there is something oddly satisfying about adding to my collection of sleek, bullet shaped lipstick tubes.

dark skin lipstick swatches

Even from before I started my channel, I loved watching dark I have done a lipstick swatch video from the MAC Matte Collection, with more fall/winter shades, and so I wanted to come on and do a video on the more colorful shades in this collection.  If you are into matte lips, but don’t like liquid lipsticks then I highly recommend these!  There are gorgeous, pigmented, and wear very comfortably for the most part.  Even the driest of them, the Retro Mattes, are comfortably wearable over a good base.  The normal mattes are very creamy, while also longwearing, and I recommend them for on the go wear.  I have also included some dark skin lipstick  lip liner suggestions for those of us who need to tone the brightness down! Enjoy 🙂

L’OREAL AMBER RUSH MAKEUP LOOK

makeup tutorial for black women

I filmed a nude makeup look using one of my favorite drugstore eyeshadow products, L’OREAL Amber Rush.  I picked the shadow out and fell in love with it immediately, and the entire look sort of developed around this shade! I love the formula, it is so buttery and pigmented, and it is a gorgeous wearable neutral shimmer for a wide range of skin tones.  I can honestly say I have never seen Amber Rush look bad on anyone!

MORPHE BRUSHES EYESHADOW PALETTE HAUL AND REVIEW!

 

morphe-brushes8

If you spend any time on Instagram looking at makeup and beauty posts, then you have most likely heard of Morphe Brushes. They are well known for their makeup application tools, but it is their eyeshadows that caught my attention! I first heard about these shadows from Jaclyn Hill, and was lucky enough to be able to snag the Jaclyn Hill palette when it came out.  I loved the shadows in that limited edition release so much that I decided that I needed to get my hands on more palettes.

On this haul I picked up the Morphe 35O Palettes, both the shimmer and the matte, along with the 35F palette.  I love them.  The shadows are buttery and smooth, while very pigmented and consistent.  Some pots do have a more powdery texture, but it’s not a huge problem.  If you want to see my review, along with swatches, be sure to check out the video below!  Enjoy 🙂

MAKEUP TRANSFORMATION TUTORIAL

MAKEUP TUTORIAL FOR BLACK WOMEN

Makeup transformation videos are always some of the most satisfying to watch.  There is nothing like watching a full face makeup look come together before your very eyes, and seeing the power of makeup up close.  More importantly, I think these videos are important because they help us see the beauty in the uniqueness of our own features.  Interestingly, getting into makeup really helped me learn to appreciate my natural beauty even more, and so I wanted to share this with all of you.  Want to see my bare face?
