MAC X Taraji Collection Review and Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

MAC has done several celebrity collections, but nothing and I mean not one thing piqued my interest more than seeing that there was going to be an upcoming MAC X Taraji P. Henson collection!!! If watching her flawlessly play Cookie on Empire wasn’t enough now I get to rock Taraji inspired makeup on my face?? This is where I can’t even…  I love Taraji.

Denim and Paisely

I’ve owned a DSLR camera since maybe around 2011 and I’m still learning new things about it every time I turn around. When I first got the camera I thought it would automatically make my pictures that much better. You know, because when you pay $1000+ for a camera that’s just supposed to happen right? I cringe every time I look back at my older photos. They were so small, so dark, so… unflattering. I had to learn how to shoot in Manual. It was pointless for me to be owning this expensive camera and not using the function. There was… View Post

Bold Looks for a Bold Life

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™ #brintoutthebold #sonicare It’s back to school time and hopefully, this will be my VERY LAST semester in school! Each year I like to try something new to start the school year off fresh.

Some people loved it, my grandmother hated it, but all in all, it was a pretty awesome style that proved to be a lot more maintenance… View Post

Just Keep Glowing with these Highlighters and Illuminators.

Summer may be on its way out but that doesn’t mean you have to give up the glow. Highlighters are a product that can be used all year round.  They have the ability to perk up your skin, accentuate features like gorgeous high cheekbones, and even make skin appear younger.  Highlighters don’t only have to be used on your cheeks. You can also use them in your cupids bow, down the bridge of your nose, under the eyebrow or across the brow bone, and even sweep them across your lips which is something my favorite Youtuber Sonjdra Deluxe does that makes… View Post
