A Quick Hello And Playing With Color!

Hi guys!!

I know it's been a few days since I last posted anything. I have some posts coming up soon from the last few days that includes hair and makeup. I have also been asked to include skincare information in my blog. Now that is an area that I know we all can benefit from.Info on skin types, moisturizers, cleansers, when to see a dermatologist, etc.  So you will begin to see skincare posts in the near future. Thanks to everyone who has subscribed to my blog! I really appreciate it. This is new for me and I am learning new things everyday.

Now, let's talk about color. I was browsing through videos on Youtube and came across one that eyexluvxmakeup did using bright colors. She used SugarPill eyeshadows, which I have got to get my hands on, and looked so cute. I figured hey, this looks easy enough. So I pulled out my BH Cosmetics 120 palette and 88 matte palette and went to work. Here are some pics!

Protective Style: Stuffed Twists

Hey guys!

So I was browsing Youtube and ran across PrettyDimples (check her out). She did a tutorial on stuffed twists. It looked super easy and is a great protective style. Since I am in the process of doing a second trial on a twist out because the first one failed (blog coming soon), I decided I would practice the style on my sister Ryan. She really all about low maintenance when it comes to her hair, which is also natural. Her hair had already been washed and straightened. The only product I used was my Eco Styler gel. No moisturizers were added as she had moisturized using the coconut oil after she washed her hair.  So check out the pics and tell me what you think. I will definitely be trying this style on myself. It turned out super cute!!

Makeover: Javia

This will be the first of many makeover posts that I do. Like I said in my profile, I am working towards being a freelance makeup artist. So I will be doing random makeovers on my friends, family, and whoever is willing to let me play with their face! LOL! So here's my first one:

My Go To Products: Moisturizers

Hi Bellas!

So I coming to you with a new post today focused on hair. I just wanted to let you guys know what products are my favorites when it comes to getting the moisture that my hair needs.

For people who are new to this whole natural hair thing, it can be a bit overwhelming. It's like you're saying "Ok, I'm natural, now what do I do". Well, I have been there and for the last 3 years I have been trying figure it out. I decided this year, I was going to get know my hair, not that I didn't already know it, but I wasn't being adventurous and really learning about the products that I was using and knowing what works best for my hair. So here we go. This will be the first of many posts about some of my go to products.

Face And Hair Of The Day: Naked Palette

Hey guys!

Just wanted to drop in and show you my face and hair of the day. Today I decided to use my Urban Decay Naked Palette. I am absolutely in love with the colors in this palette. If you don't have it get it!! The colors are great for everyday and evening looks. They are also really pigmented which is great. Some people have complained about fallout from the shadow but I haven't had that problem.

It's a MAC haul!!

Hey guys!

A few days ago I ordered my very first (of many) MAC palettes. I have never owned MAC products. Yes I know shame on me. But hey, it's never too late right. So I got my order in today and I am so geeked about it. Well I was until I opened the box. But we will get to that. First let me show you what I got.

My First Post!! Yay Me!

Hi guys!

So this is my first official post as a blogger. Yay me!! :-) So why did I decide to start a hair and beauty blog you ask? Well I could start off by giving you some sort of a background.

I'm not one of those girls who was all "Oh I have loved makeup since I was 12". Yeah, so not me. If anything, I avoided it at all costs as much as I could. It wasn't until my junior prom that I wore makeup for the very first time. I tried to avoid it then, but the fam was all gung ho about me wearing it. So I said why not. It looked ok. I didn't fall in love then and never looked back.
