HAUL + UNBOXING of my Press Kit!

HAUL + UNBOXING

I have to say that as many kits I have received, it never gets old! Each time, I have to take a moment and pinch myself at the thought that these brands not only have seen my work, but also like it enough to reach out.  It’s truly humbling, and I have to thank each and every one of you—my supporters—for all of your love and support! I am so grateful to God for giving me the platform, and to all of you for being a part of it.

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?

Classic Christmas Makeup: Festive and Fun

CHRISTMAS MAKEUP

Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great holiday season.  I wanted to come do a classic Christmas makeup tutorial because, of course!  I went with very very classic: simple eye, radiant skin, and a bold red lip.  Now I almost never wear a red lip, but when I do you can pretty much be completely certain that it is Christmas.  It is super easy, and I created the look using my new Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette, which I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised by and totally loving.  Be sure to check out the makeup tutorial below if you like the look and would like to see how I got it!  I hope you enjoy 🙂

Festive Makeup Tutorial: Urban Decay Naked Palette

PARTY MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Hey guys! I have a party makeup tutorial that is super easy and inspired by this look that Zendaya was wearing on Instagram a while ago.  Her makeup is always on #fleek and so I had to do an inspired look!  I think this look is awesome for parties! It is a super flattering festive makeup look that I think will work on a bunch of different skin tones.  I am also loving the Urban Decay Naked Palette, it is very pigmented.  There is some fall out, so definitely keep that in mind.

Be sure to check out the video below! I hope you enjoy 🙂
