I’ve been trying to write this blog post for what seems like forever. Last week when I was trying to write my Dollar Tree haul post, my internet kept going out. My internet has been cutting off and on. I am about to lose it to ATT on the phone if it doesn’t stop acting up. UGH!!!
Halloween is right around the corner, and I am sure some of y’all still haven’t figured out what you all want to be. I’m not so sure if I know what I want to be either. I don’t even know if I am doing anything special that night. Hmmm… Maybe I will go as a nasty woman? Anyway. Here are five Halloween makeup tutorials that will surely inspire you to trick or treat or just wait for the 50% off candy sales the very next day like I do.
Over the weekend, I did something I never thought I would ever do. I have always dreamed of shooting a fashion film, but I never had the opportunity to do so. One of my friends asked me to shoot her styling videos for her. She is going by Lexis-Style, so be sure to check her out. I love the outfits she wears to school everyday. She really lets her personality shine through her outfits. Follow her here. I have to thank her for this experience because it was fun and challenging. Moving from location to location. Shooting guerrilla style in the streets. I loved it! I can’t wait to do it again. Photo from here. View the short and long versions below.
I was sent a concealer palette Rosewholesale.com and asked to review their website. The website has men and women’s clothes, a few plus size items, bags, shoes, and other accessories. The thing that I like the most about the Rosewholesale.com are the beauty products. I love websites with low priced beauty products. The whole website is super affordable, but I love that the beauty products are so affordable because I can buy tons of eyeshadow and concealer palettes, makeup tools, and more for less!
I went to the mall and did the Sephora Color IQ thing and ended up buying the uber expensive Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Foundation. It really does make my skin look smooth, but it also left it looking ashy since it has a really matte finish. I also think the Color IQ machine scanner thingy matched me wrong. Watch my video to hear about the rest of my experience with the Sephora Color IQ.
This is my final review for the Brazilian Loose Wave Virgin 16 inch hair from Fabulace Hair. I love this hair so much. It is so great! I hope you all purchase some hair from this company. Flexirods are my friend. They wave this hair even more than it already is. I get so many compliments on it everyday. This hair really is the best. Now I see why people go crazy for virgin hair.
Here are the links I mentioned in the video. Check them out:

FCC: I was gifted this hair from The Fabulace Hair company. This is an honest review.
I love this copper and red colored makeup tutorial from NikkiTutorials on YouTube. This is the perfect look for a holiday party. I can’t think of a more beautiful look to wear with a little black dress. I feel like this look is so shiny on its own that maybe the outfit could be toned down or understated, non? Oui! Anywho. How do you feel about this tutorial? I want to try it right now!
Looking for tights for the winter? Well look no more because I found them. I have been loving Nordstrom tights for two years now. They truly are the best! Nordstrom has some of the sturdiest, best fitting, stylish plus size tights around. They fit me very well. As a matter of fact, they are one of the only brands that fits me perfectly. They last forever if you treat them right, and they don’t bunch around my ankles or roll down all the way past my butt when I try to move around or get in and out of cars and whatnot. Seriously. You have to try these tights. I wear the Light Support and the Control Top.
FCC: I paid for these tights myself. This is an honest review.
Hey guys! I wanted to quickly leave you with my one week Fabulace Hair review over the holiday weekend. I am jsut so in love with this hair. It is amazing. Check out the video for all the deets. Also check out this post for the latest Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.

Don’t you just love how cut creases look on the eye? I love cut creases, but I am not any good at them. This video from Little Kiva makes it seem a little easier to do. I am going to be watching this a few times until I can finally get the eyeshadow right.
I found this awesome hot roller tutorial from Fabulasity Is Me on Youtube last night. The thing about hot rollers is they work better with long hair. If you have medium, shoulder length hair they may work for you if you use the smaller rollers. I see the hot roller sets in Walmart every time I go in there, but I bypass them. I feel more comfortable using my curling rods, curling irons, and flat irons. I had a hot roller set way back in middle or high school. I kept burning my fingers on the rollers. I think the hot rollers are a little more user friendly nowadays, so I may consider buying a set especially since this tutorial looks so easy and the method is super fast.
I love this rainbow eyeshadow look. I don’t know where you would wear this, but it looks so fun, cool, and amazing. Video from WendyakaAgony.
This video is my ode to the introvert. As an introvert, I love being me. I do not want to be an extrovert, so stop trying to force your extroverted ways on me. There is nothing wrong with being an extrovert, but come on…being an extrovert is not the only way to be in the world. So this video is going to do exactly what the graphic says it is going to do…show you how to care and respect the introvert! Photo from Tumblr.
Hey guys! I don’t know if you noticed, but I took a little blog hiatus, vacay, whatever you want to say. It was much needed, and I’m glad I did it because I got a lot of work done around the house. I scrubbed the heck out of my bathroom, and I got a good amount of rest after Columbia Style Week. Those five days were intense.
Today’s Beauty Bit is about how to cover hyperpigmentation and acne scars with makeup. I know a lot of women, black and white, have issues with discolorations on their face. I am one of them. These two tutorials below should help women with different skin tones mask the hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

Hello everyone! This is the third post for the Wiggin’ It Series which will teach you how to make your own wigs.
Today we will finally make our wigs. There are several different ways to do this. You can use a stocking cap, spandex sport cap aka dome cap, or a weaving cap. Whichever cap you chose determines the type of bonding method you use. If you do use the dome cap/ spandex cap, make sure it is the one female cap and not the male cap. For instance, you can use weave glue on each of these caps as long as you put a plastic bag or plastic stocking cap on the wig head first to keep the cap from sticking to the wig head. The spandex cap is great for high temperature glue sticks and fusion glue sticks. With this cap, you still want to use a plastic bag or shower cap underneath to protect the wig head. The weaving cap is great if you want to sew on your weave, and once again… it goes great with weave glue as well.
Hello everyone! This is the second post for the Wiggin’ It Series which will teach you how to make your own wigs. Yesterday’s post was on buying beauty supply store hair.
Today’s post is on virgin hair. That extremely expensive, yet totally gorgeous hair that you see on the likes of Beyonce, Lala Anthony, and Kim Kardashian. The reason it looks so good and is sooooo expensive is becomes it comes straight off of the donors head, and is shipped to the hair companies and then to you from India, Russian, Malaysia, Ecuador, Mongolia, Peru, and many other exotic locales. It doesn’t have any chemicals or color dyes in it so it is pure, unprocessed virgin hair.
I have yet to buy this kind of hair, but if I were I would get the Russian hair since this hair resembles my relaxed African American hair more than the other types of hair. It is out of my budget, but if you got it like that… rock that virgin hair! Also if you are new to wig making, stick to the less expensive beauty supply hair first. Trust me on this. You don’t want to screw up your first wig with $100-$1000 hair. Videos from @Thomasadrianna.
