Everyone isn’t fortunate to have a family that cares, that makes an effort to be there. Fortunately, my family has been there for me religiously especially in this year of great change for me. I believe my family has really connected with one another, and it’s the great feeling of being surrounded by love. We recently connected for my nephews graduation, ( Here we come first grade) but the night before was mask day. Cuz the family who masks together stays together.
FYI, we’re a family of skincare.
Now that I am a fan of lip colors, You cannot keep me away from a good red. Recently I’ve sampled Avenue from Colourpop Cosmetics, and its definitely love! In the sun, and on my shade of chocolate, it comes as a blend of red orange, but it pops. I’ve become fond of blessing my Cupid’s bow with a highlight, usually from NYX cosmetics. The specific shade I am wearing is Pinkie Dust, which is a golden rose highlight.
Being a brown chocolate girl there are shades that I never thought I would be able to wear. Lighter shades of pink was amongst those colors but BAM! With the right lip liner you can conquer the World.
Recreate My Lips with Kat Von D Lip Liner in BloodMilk And NYX Soft Creme Matte In Milan.
I’m always down for ANY shade of purple. It’s Matte? Even better! I had fun with NYX Ruthless, it goes on smoothly but beware if you have a heavy hand, as with a few swipes you’ll put too much in your lips. It’s very creamy, and surprisingly light, extremely pigmented as NYX Cosmetics products usually are.
This possibly can be used as a transition color from late summer into fall. But if you’re anything like me, it’ll be a colour you’ll wear all year round.
Any Shade of purple is my go to. No, All shades of purple are my go to. There’s just something about purple that makes it a color that stands out on brown skin. Marvelous! I’m wearing NYX in Strawberry Parfait and Berry strudel, surprisingly they are both *Only* lip glosses! With NYX you can be assured that your lip colour will always be pigmented.
Less is always more with NYX Cosmetics.
I’ve searched high and low for a nude that would compliment my chocolate brown skin, and after plenty of trials and errors I’ve finally found it! NYX’s brand is one of my absolute favorites currently. I’ve always appreciated the lip glosses because it gives me not only a dose of Shine, it’s so very pigmented. I’ve blended Praline and Beyond Basic, which is their new slip tease full color lip oil. Because I am a chocolate cutie, I find that I don’t need much Beyond Basic. I first use Praline as a base coat of sorts, then I dab about three dots on my bottom lip and I blend my lips together then Voila! Magic is created! Also in this look I use my NYX’s bright idea illuminating stick in Sun Kissed Crush on my Cupid’s bow.
Tell me what to think? Simple but Chic!
I love Makeup! Specifically I love lip colours! I believe my first colour as an adult was NYX Transylvania, it’s this deep plum that has folks complimenting me left and right whenever I wear it! As much as I love colour, sometimes it’s hard to get an accurate depiction of what the color will look like on my skin color, and in natural light. So… since I’m going to wear the colours anyway, I figured I would become a “beauty blogger” and capture the shades while on my way to work, in natural light, using a bright orange backdrop, because why not?!
So I present my first installment. Love it!
This is ColourPop’s Collaboration with ILUVSARAHII, the color is Mamacita and I’m in love. It’s a matte formula but it’s perfect for the fall going into the winter season. I also used NYX’s Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Sun Kissed Crush on my Cupid’s bow.
