Fenty Holiday Collection

Rhianna is pulling out everyones edges. She just launched Fenty Beauty a few weeks ago. I was away in KY Visiting family at the time the Sephora Associate told us that the first day in their store(in Louisville, KY) they sold $10,000 worth of merchandise.

I was not surprised.  A line that debuts FORTY shades will def get peoples attention. I was matched and since we were in a big city my shade was SOLD OUT! I had to drive to a small town to get my shade.

Thank you Elizabethtown, KY for having this melanated girls shade(410 if your are wondering)

I finally get home to FL and start playing around with my new makeup only to go on Instagram and see that a new holiday collection is launching October 1st.

Everyday Makeup look

Since I started doing my makeup a few years ago(2 yrs this coming June) I realize that I love big bold looks

Those are fun to do but it’s ok to look subtle very now and then as well. I am so thankful that I have friends who love makeup just as much as I do and have introduced me to nude lips and “everyday” makeup. I have fallen in love with mauves, browns and peaches. I may even do a video soon to showcase my favorite browngirl friendly nudes.

I am so happy that one of my friends decided to help me out and show an everyday makeup look. You can check that out here. We decided to create these looks and demo the new Becca Chrissy Teigen Palette.

I am so glad that I didn’t write off nude lipsticks and glosses. I am having so much fun creating these everyday looks now. Let me know what some of your favorite nude lipsticks are.

Essence Beauty Box

I have always loved the idea of a subscription service for products. I mean you get items delivered right to your door and you can try out samples of different products. I joined a popular makeup subscription service a few months ago and I was so excited because i had seen all the hype behind it.

Well, imagine my disappointment when I received my box and the products i paid for just were not right for my skin type. I am a WOC(woman of color) I have gold undertones, so not ALL makeup will work for me. I felt like it was a waste of my money when I was not able to use most of the products that I had purchased.

I was a little sad. Well, imagine my joy when I found out that Essence is debuting their own beauty box in OCT 2015! I am so excited to try out this subscription box. For only $15 a month I will be able to try products that will work for my skin tone as well as support business owned by POC(Essence has stated that they will feature at least one product a month by a black owned business)

This seriously has made me so excited. I can’t wait until October so I can see what is inside the first box. You can sign up for your own box here

Fun Lip Friday

I have been playing in makeup a lot lately. Learning what I like and what I don’t like, learning different techniques to apply and just overall having some fun.

I decided that this year I was going to step outside the box when it came to my lipstick shades and I am proud of myself of sticking to that promise. Each friday I will feature a shade that I wouldn’t wear normally. Fun Lip Friday will be a day that I encourage all my readers to step outside the box too. I would love to see what looks you come up with. So please tag me on IG @floridanatural83 and hashtag the pic #funlipfriday.
