Adventures in Cosmo School: "Perks with the Gig"


Being that I'm in school, I not only get the liscensed cosmetologist discount on products but I also get a student discount! This could be very dangerous! Lookout for my review on how these products fair on my natural locks.

Me in the Nude



This is a quick shot of me trying out the Neutral Make Up Look on myself. It was a quick look and I got so many compliments that day. Hmmm...maybe there is something to the theory "Less is more!"

Make up used:

Foundation: Clinique Perfectly Real Liquid Foundation
Conceler: Covergirl in Deep
Cheeks: La Femme Blush in Cinnabar
Brows: Maybelline Brow Define Brown



What do you think? Have you gone bare?

Take Care My Lovelies!

Twists and Turns


If you follow my other blog, The Dryer Diaries, you are filled in on my cosmo school hair cutting fiasco> I was doubting myself something tough and just felt poopy. Well, I turned that frown upside down, spent some money on hair products and decided to get to styling. Still not perfect, but I will take it! :)

Fall/Winter Make Up Trend: "Nude Attitude"



As I comb the fashion/make-up blogosphere for hot Fall/Winter trends, I've come across tons of barely there looks popping up everywhere! This will be a very different approach for a girl like me who loves wearing big bright pops of color (being that I was so afraid to step out of my neutral make-up box for many many years).

Make Up artists from Our Vanity recommend a few key items to complete this faces with flair:

1) Foundation that matches the skin very well (not too heavy handed ladies)
2) Light blush on the apples of the cheeks
3) Mascara to make eye lashes pop
4) Soft nude lipstick/gloss to polish the look

This should be a five minute face for real!

Winter Protective Hair Style "Box Braids"


As I type this, I am deciding on how many bags of hair I am going to need to purchase at the beauty supply today! I am loving this retro look of single braids. This takes me back to old school 90's R&B groups like Jade and movies like Poetic Justice.

Pictured here, Solange Knowles is giving life to this retro style and I'm ready to live again! I haven't rocked this style since I was a freshmen in highschool (and I won't dare say when that was).

With the winter months upon us, I think I will revisit this style for a few months for a much needed hair hibernation.

Check out the style versatility below:
