Makeup Mania

Hey lovely readers. I’ve decided to post about something a little bit different today and obviously by the title you already know it’s about one of my many loves: makeup. I really got into makeup about a year or two ago after years of adamantly stating throughout my childhood I would never put a drop of that clown paint on my face. And here I am, in my 20s,  eating my words all while having an amazing golden glow in the middle of fall:  makeup is flippin’ amazing.

As much as I love fall and all it’s beauty, with the leaves changing color and the temperatures cooling to something actually bearable, I’m such a summer girl and I was pining for something summer-esque when I created this look. And awesomely enough I only used one eyeshadow palette which was this little gem right here:

BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette

The BH Cosmetics – Party Girl Palette: $6.95

I absolutely adore this palette because it’s very affordable and the pigment from the shadows are off the charts. Granted, if you’re dark skinned like me you’ll definitely need a base (preferably white, I used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk) to make sure you get a really good color pay off or else the colors will look washed out and nobody wants that.

Until next time, beautiful readers,

Impromptu Protective Style?….. Why Yes.

Hey, beautiful readers!! Sorry for being gone the entire year. Life is crazy ya’know?

Anywhooooooo, I’m starting to get a hang of this natural hair thing (sorta kinda) and a while ago I realized when stretched my hair can finally go into a ponytail again!! Whoooohooooo!!! It was uncomfortably tight, but it was a ponytail and I was elated. It was definitely a stretch and I probably won’t be throwing my hair into too many ponytails any time soon so I needed to find a way to put my hair up.

I started with a two strand twistout, which didn’t fall the way I wanted, and I threw it up into a puff, but the it looked weird too because the middle of my hair is wavy instead of curly and those ends never match the rest of my hair no matter how long I twirl them around my finger when twisting. So my hair looked curly all around while the middle looked like I’d just been electrocuted 😆

The electrocuted look wasn’t the one I was going for so I decided to tuck all the ends under with some handy dandy bobby pins and voilà!!! I got this cute bun looking thing and I’m officially in love right now😍😍😍😍. I’ve been able to maintain this look for about a week now and my ends stay tucked away. A win win for me.

Anyway, that’s all I have to share for now, but I’ll be back (sooner this time) with another update.

Stay beautiful,

Eureka
