My new sew-in!

OK so I tried a new color and look this time for the summer. I got a Burgundy black color. Its very pretty and I love it. I got it completely closed this time I didn't leave any of my hair out. That was a first I was always scared it wud look like a mop. But once I cut and curled it it came out beautifully. I also was given a tip with my last one to not put grease or heavy oil sheen in it. It weighs the hair down and it wont curl even with heat. So I did that and it curled perfectly the first time I didn't have to keep goin  over it. So I wont be putting any grease in this one. Lol lol so look at my pics. ..what do u guys think????

My Arabic eye look

Saw a tutorial on youtube and decided to mix it up and try my own! Hope u like!

Caant find the perfect foundation or powder.

I have been trying to find the perfect foundation and powder. What I usually use is zuri loose powder in nuit. And I love it! has red tones in it which r starting to make me self conscious about my natural look. I don't want it to be such a contrast from my neck and skin tone. I have tried avon,zuri,kiss and various others,and i havent found one i know im not the lightest but im not the darkest skin tone out here either lol why is it so hard to find a foundation and powder i like without all the red tones? Anybody know any good products that cater to us dark skin sistas?! Please share info in my comments?!

My thoughts on nyx products

Round lipsticks- I definitely love these sooo much!!! I have over 30 of them for sure lol. They glide on really creamy and silky. Very vibrant and beautiful colors. My favs are Hermes and Aphrodite

Single eyeshadows- I only have two of these and I like them but im not in love. I have purple and rust. they r very pigmented  but all of the colors just don't pop to me.

Cream glitter palettes- I have three of these and I love them I wear them when I go out at night just to make the shadow pop. I have the silver, brown and purple palette. They r easy to use and come with a sponge and brush applicator.

Shimmer pigments- I have like three of these in black,purple,and brown. I love the purple I haven't used the brown one yet. But they do look nice when applied the right way. Just a Lil messy tho.

Jumbo eyeshadow  pencils- I have these in black,slate,lilac, milk,and gold. These and very useful and easy to use especially when doin precise lines. They glide on very easy and creamy unlike most shadow pencils that r very hard and tug at ur eyelids.

Megashine lipglosses- I love these also!! They r very pigmented and creamy. they don't dry ur lips out and they come in beautiful colors.

Eyeshadow  3 quad palettes-i have five of these and They r basically they same as the singles. Pigmented but not a lot of colors pop out to me. But thats just me.

Nyx lip liners- I like these but don't use them a lot. But the are smooth and creamy. Pretty colors and last long time.

Nyx blushes- very very very pigmented I only have two but I like them very much. They don't have any real plum colors for dark skin females but I did find those two that do the trick. Pecan and dusty rose are nice for women of my skin tone.  

OK hope that helped anybody thats thinking about trying nyx products or just looking for some other colors to try or products to try! Thanks for reading and hope ur following! !!!

Breast cancer in a water bottle????!!!!! Wtf

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous! On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said this is what caused her breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue. Sheryl Crow's oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that

has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic! =LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE / GIRLFRIEND / DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE

Make-up tips

Eyebrows Tip: After plucking your eyebrows, you can use wet tea bags to soothe the skin around your eyebrows.

Lip Tip: It's best to smooth your lips with a waxy lip balm, like Chapstick, and use your fingertips to massage the balm into your lips.

Eye Makeup Tip: Applying fake lashes to the mid to outer lashes can make your eyes appear larger, fuller and more beautiful.

Beauty Foods Tip: Carrots can help protect the outer layer of your skin and prevent premature aging.

Eye Makeup Tip: A thin line of eyeliner in black or brown can greatly define your eyes and make them appear brighter.

Lip Tip: If you have thin lips, use a lighter colored lipstick.  A dark shade lipstick makes your lips look smaller.

Lip Tip: Dab a touch of gloss in the center of your top lip.  This will make your mouth look pouty and sexy.

Eye Makeup Tip: You can use a hair dryer to heat your eyelash curler.  The warmth of the eyelash curler will help curl your lashes more efficiently.

Skin Care Tip: Baby wipes are excellent makeup removers as well as hand and face refreshers.

Eyebrows Tip: Use a pencil and powder in the correct shade to fill in your eyebrows (light skin: blonde shade; olive skin: brown shade; African American: gray shade).

Skin Care Tip: If you want firmer, smoother, and younger looking skin, you need to exercise everyday.  Exercise brings oxygen and nutrients to your skin.
