Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday back to a whole new week, I hope everyone morning is going good so far? I noticed I haven’t been doing much make up haul or posts lately and I want to start posting more posts related to beauty for the next upcoming weeks. I decided to do a post on my current favourite lip products I am loving so far, I am so obsessed with these products I am using these four for pretty much every make up look I do. The first three I am obsessed with is from the Fenty beauty line, I am loving the glosses and lipstick. I love the texture and how it feels I first bought the shimmering rose nude loved that and had to try the diamond milk one. I was first hesitant to buying it because I honestly thought it would be like all the other clear glosses but I decided to give it a try, it was more like a last minute quick pick up purchase. But to be honest I love it as much as the fenty glow one it is pretty much the same result I love how it just looks on me. One of the things I love about the fenty beauty line is that the beauty products she makes is for all skin tones and women everywhere, and that is one thing the beauty industry needs more for women. As a women of colour one of the hard things for me when it comes to buying products especially either foundation or lip shades is that its hard for me to find ones that match or go with me perfectly. This is a brand I would continually buy from, I haven’t tried wearing it over other lip shades I usually just wear it alone.

The next product shown that I love is the Blackup gloss, I got this on sale but sadly I found out that it is not for sale on the Sephora site anymore and I am not sure if it would be back. So backup is a brand dedicated to women of colour and it was developed by women of colour and it caters to women of darker skin tones. This is one of the reasons why I fell in love with this product it does what the brand says, this gloss looks so good on me it blends in so well with my skin tone. The gloss is kind of like a clear gloss with a nude undertone it carries different under tone colours, so you can get a rose tone or a more brown tone and etc that is the best way I can explain since I cant bring it up on sephora. The gloss doesn’t come off to sticky the only issue is that when used it sometimes comes out separated from the colour so sometimes clear gloss comes out first then it coming out together.

So those are so far all and current favourite lip products am using when doing my make up. I do not want to go further in more detail with these because i just currently did a Sephora review post on my blog and I did go through these products already. But I wanted to do a separate post on what am currently loving at the moment for winter, if you haven’t tried fenty yet I recommend you do I can not find one thing I dont like. And if you are a women of colour and find it hard like me finding shades that go with your skin tone there is your brand, even if you are not of colour you can also check out the brand they have other products pretty much any one of any shade can still use. That is it for today’s post like & comment i love hearing from you all my next post will be up Wednesday at 3pm Toronto time lol, I am so happy I am finally on a posting schedule!

Good morning everyone, and welcome back to another blog post, I hope everyone day is going great so far. I am back with another blog post I have got to lately get time to work on my blog posts, I feel like a weight has been lifted off to be honest. I always get a bit upset when am behind and set back on my posts because of course being a mommy comes first. One of my top resolutions was to try and put in more work into my blogging and so far that hasn’t been happening, but hopefully I still try and not give up. So for today blog post is a haul on a bunch of cute kid buys I got lately. Its a bit a lot because I’ve been behind on my buys, and of course most of pretty much all is from zara. Zara started having their sale from since around last week of December till now, I swear this has been the longest sale they ever had that I know of. These are the cute buys that was picked up, all of them was reasonable priced. I cant complain their usual price is pretty expensive somewhat for “kid clothes”, sometimes I have to slow down on my purchases because the total comes down to be ridiculous.

The two cartoon shirts in the middle I purchased for my daughter, I saw them in the zara boys area. I dont really pick up boy clothes for my daughter by sometimes zara boy section has some cute picks and if it looks unisex I buy it. All items I get for my daughter I buy in a age six years or seven, this is because sadly the downfall of zara clothes is the fabric it is made out of but if washed in I believe warm or hot water they tend to shrink. I went through this a lot for awhile because it took me awhile to catch on that it was the fabric the problem, and they need to be washed in cold. But I still wash them in warm and they dont shrink that much I believe what shrank it a lot was the dryer. But she still has alot of surviving clothes so am starting to get the hand of it of how to handle the clothes. The last picture is a pair of cute grey wide leg pants with an cute grey bodysuit, I paired these two together. Sadly she cant wear the grey pants yet due to this awful weather (we are in winter) and we just literally got snow. So some of these clothes are put on the back burner for now.

I absolutely love this pink biker jacket as soon as it was out I have been eyeing it for the longest time, as soon as I saw it was part of the sale I just had to purchase it for my daughter. Shes five years old but I purchased an age seven, zara goes by age not particularly by sizes. But that is all the purchases my daughter got I will be having more haul to come sorry if this was pretty quick, I do have one for myself to be posted soon. Remember to comment & like I love hearing from you all.

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to my blog! I am back with another blog post, this is one I’ve been really wanting to do for a while now. I actually have got this requested and I waited awhile because I wanted to do this one in more detail and depth from my last lashes post but I do not want to wait out any longer.

Now am going to let you know and be honest, I was never a lash pro that’s for sure. There was an actually time where I did not wear lashes at all and when I started I thought it was the most weirdest feeling ever! I was really bad at trying to attempt to put them on I actually gave up, until I practiced and practiced and found a way that worked for me. So this way might work for a lot or might not work for you at all and that’s okay. You just need to practice and find ways that work for you.

  1. Stretch my lashes – So first I stretch my natural lashes out with mascara. I grab my most favourite mascara and I put about two thin coats of mascara on. This brings out my natural lashes and also helps me hide my eyelash glue.
  2. Apply lash glue to lashes – So next you’re going to want to apply your glue to your false lashes. Make sure you apply a thin good coat across. I am also going to make a disclaimer if your lashes are too long and don’t of your eyes, your going to cut the end of your lashes and measure NEVER cut the beginning you will screw up your lashes. Then let dry for a few seconds.
  3. This next step is important because it’s how I get my lashes on of course. Next you’re going to grab the sides or lash part of your lashes and bring them over the root of where your lashes grow out from and hover them over and measure and make sure it all lines up perfectly. Then gently rest false lashes at the root of where your natural lash root is and bring down and use your finger and tap across to get it to fully stay.
  4. Brush out – So this is my next trick to make my natural lash and false to intertwine. I take my eyebrow brush and gently brush the false up and loosen them up so that they intertwine with my natural, this allow them to look natural and to stay put. I never apply mascara after because this allows my false to have a longer life span and also my last step plays that role already which is why I cut out the step of applying mascara on my false.

And that is my secret to applying my lashes, I always get asked a lot how I get them perfectly on. This honestly shocks me because am no expert and also remind me of the time I struggled to even apply them, but I can honestly say that practice does make perfect. Hopefully I hope my tips are handy and I could help someone. If any of you would like any more posts on anything in detail I am happy to do it! Remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all.
