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?

Work, work, work, work, work, work! I loved that song when it came out, but I think I loved her looks in the videos even more.  I decided to film this tutorial on the look inspired by the second video (the one where she is in the pink/purple room with Drake).  I have all the products I used listed, and if you want to see how to achieve this look be sure to check out the tutorial below!

HIGHLIGHTER FOR DARK SKIN: JACLYN HILL CHAMPAGNE POP COLLECTION

HIGHLIGHTER FOR DARK SKIN

I remember when I was starting out in makeup, I noticed that celebrities often had a certain glow.  I later came to realize that this glow was the result of highlighter, and then decided that I needed to find a way to make highlighting a part of my makeup routine! My highlighter collection has grown exponentially since then, as I continue the search to find the perfect highlighter for dark skin, and many of my favorites are Becca Cosmetics products.  I am a huge fan of Becca Cosmetics highlighters.  They are buttery, pigmented, and smooth and they are so beautiful on a wide range of skin tones.

Ombre Lip Tutorial

ombre lip

Ombre lip colors and combinations have been all the rage for a while now.  They are the perfect way to introduce creativity and flair into your lipstick routine, and add a pop of color when you want some added drama! What I love most this lip is that it helps make any lip color more wearable on darker skin–by putting the lightest shade in the very center of the lips and keeping the rest of the lip darker, an ombre lip seamlessly blends the most dramatic colors while still making a statement.  Added bonus: ombre lip combos also help add volume and plump lips for a poutier look.

Thank you all so much for the positive feedback on my Black History Month video!  I got a bunch of questions about the brown ombre lip color that I was wearing in the video, so I decided to come on and do a quick video!  I used two liquid lipsticks and a brown lip liner to do this lip, so it is super simple especially since these colors are not rare.
