Winter Lookbook Featuring Affordable Outfits for Curvy Figures!

outfits for curvy hips

Hey Guys ūüôā I wanted to come on and do my first ever fashion video! This video was a lot of fun, and really made me want to put out more like it.  These outfits are comfortable and flattering picks for curvy girls with curvy figures‚ÄĒparticularly curvy hips. They are also so affordable, and wearable, that they will make great staples that can be mixed and matched across styles and seasons. Enjoy! Be sure to watch the video below ūüôā

 

Outfit 1: Monochrome Jade

I love pairing fitting silhouettes with loose-fitting pieces on top.  This is the first of those looks.  I think these looks allow me to flatter my figure in a wearable and comfortable way, and this outfit is no exception.  Paired with the thigh high boots, it dresses the look up but it also looks very cute with a heeled bootie.  This outfit is not the warmest, as the material of the dress and trench are pretty thin, but it’s great for days when you’ll be indoors!

Outfit #2: Red and Black

This outfit is the perfect balance between comfy and cute.  I love the flannel, not just because of the comfort it gives this look, but also for how warm it is.  It is the perfect choice for when I am bored of my cardigans, but still want something cozy to throw on.  I love the red‚ÄĒit adds a pop to the outfit.  To make the flannel more feminine, and make the outfit look more pulled together, I like to add a red lip and a pair of thigh high boots.  Perfect for a football game, or a day out.  You will love how effortlessly cute you look in this one!

Outfit 3: The BLACK and TAN

This outfit is one of my favorites.  It’s very classy, and can be easily dressed up, but it’s also super comfortable.  It works well for a day out‚ÄĒcoffee or lunch‚ÄĒand changing the shoes to heeled booties or a tall black boot seamlessly transition this outfit to a nighttime look.  The dress is supposed to fall right above the knee, but it can be adjusted for preference.  The waterfall detail on the duster really elevates the piece, as the material is admittedly not my favorite.

Outfit #4: The Bomber

I have to admit that this outfit is a little bit out of my comfort zone, it’s a little more edgy and less girly, but I was really happy with it in the end! I love the monochrome aspect, and the bright orange interior on the jacket adds a welcome pop of color.  I love the dress! The material is thicker than your average bodycon dress, so it’s super warm and very flattering.  It will easily conceal tights, which I had on, and I imagine spanx if you want to wear those too!  At 40$, the bomber is an absolute steal  and it is also super warm.

Outfit #5: Whiteout

This is one of the few mostly white outfits I love.  The lighting makes it hard to see, but the dress is white and the vest is an off white cream suede exterior with a cream fur inside.  This outfit is very warm, even without a coat, and very comfortable for all day wear.  The taupe boots tie everything together, and is a chic addition to the look! Be sure to pair this with sheer tights if you decide to go black, opaque tights will be too stark a contrast.

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?

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette

revealed 3 palette

Hey guys! I recently had the opportunity to try the new Revealed 3 palette.  I know a bunch of you loved the looks I have created with the Revealed 2 palette, so I decided to go ahead and try this one for you all as well.  This palette has a really unique combination of shades, all with a plum tone so it will appeal to a lot of people. I personally prefer the Revealed 2 palette since it has a rose gold theme, and I also find that the shadows in that palette are all gorgeously pigmented.  I have a look with that palette HERE.

Birthday Makeup Tutorial

Birthday Makeupj

 

HEY GUYS! Today is my BIRTHDAY and I am so beyond excited to get this birthday makeup look up.  I love birthday makeup tutorials because they allow you to go all out and be super dramatic, with a look that is meant to make you stand out as the center of attention.  I also like to wear a makeup look that is long wearing and comfortable when it comes to birthday makeup, so more often than not I opt out of glitter for the night.  I go with strong, bold statement shadows and a nude lip for a show stopping look that is super easy to maintain throughout the night! Check below for all the products that made this birthday makeup look possible as well as the video tutorial to go with it.  Hope you all enjoy!
