Updated Everyday Makeup Routine

Hello All My Darling Divas!
Welcome to another week on the blog! I am really proud that I have been keeping up this 2 blog post a week thing all summer. Kudos to me! So today I am showing you my updated makeup routine. I’m always working on switching up my makeup routine, and learning different ways to apply makeup. It dawned on me that I haven’t shown my makeup routine since 2011 and I’ve learned soooooooo much more about the application of makeup since then. If you want to check out my old routine, Click here So enjoy the video below, and meet me under for more pics!

So did you enjoy the video? I know I may have been a lil ashy due to that darn translucent powder, but I fixed all my casper mishaps off camera. I love learning new makeup tricks, so if you have any suggestions feel free to comment them below!

Now let me throw in there that I don’t do this EVERYDAY. I do this routine when I am going somewhere, recording, or just wanting to feel like Beyonce. I call it my everyday routine because its just a basic makeup regime versus an actual tutorial when I’m showing you a certain eye makeup look.

Products Used

I did a side by side comparison of my makeup routine from 2011 to now. I have come succhhh a long way and all that proves is that my makeup skills can only get better and better from here. I was fabulous then, and I’m even more fabulous now!

So ladies what’s your makeup routine? Share it with me below or on any of my social networking sites! The links to them are all above. That’s all for today divas! Check back this week again for another video.Hmm I wonder what it’s going to be about! Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots!

Confessions of a Indecisive Natural

Hello my Darling Divas!

So I have a very silly Hair Story to tell you and it is basically an update to what I’ve been doing to my hair since we last spoke a couple of months ago. I didn’t blog all spring and mostly summer, so this is kinda what has been happening since then! Bear with me ladies, this story is truly a hot mess! But yall still love me! I know yall all have been when I was! 
Caution: The following events ALL took place in 2013, you have been warned!! 
So yall remember last October I introduced the healthy hair challenge and made a video explaining all the problems I hate with my hair? This is where all the chaos began.. click on this this link for that video. So basically I had sooo much wrong with my hair and that was due to the fact that I was dying it too often and using LOTS and LOTS of heat! So I created this challenge, and despite me not finishing this challenge, it did bring me alot of insight on how to take care of my hair properly. It unfortunately also got me going though a constant need to change my hair up since I had no clue what was wrong with it. 
My hair back in October 2012
Ok so towards the beginning of May 2012, I was convinced that I didn’t want to be blonde anymore, I blamed alllll my hair problems on be deciding to go blonde, and from that point on I began growing my hair back to my original hair color.

Now I was starting to dig this ombre look, but I couldnt help but wonder how my hair would look if I went all the way back to dark brown hair. As you can tell I’m all up for change sooooo, I decided to tryout a look to conceal and help grow out the rest of my blonde. So I went to youtube and with the help of some lovely ladies, the Faux Bun Remix was born.
And if you were wondering damn did you change your hair again? yea I sure did lol It was the begining of summer, and I woke up one day and said Im cutting my hair. A box of brown dye and 2hours later… this happened.
Now I loved my hair like this!!! But I totally forgot that summer heat+ flat ioning didn’t last long, sooo this style only lasted for about 2 weeks before I said ehhhhhhh I need something new AGAIN lol soooo this light brown made me think you know Brie you just love your blonde so go back. AND SO this is the very long annyoing story of how this undecive natural went from blonde to black to blonde again within a year. Have any of yall felt like this? Just not being to commit 2 one hairstyle? Im writhing this post as we speak thinking about getting some Havana Twist and I just dyed it back to icy blonde.
 So have yall ladies ever been through this crisis? I find that since having natural hair is sooo versatile, it becomes almost obsesive to want to switch up you look! Now Ive shared my crazy hair story, whats yours? Share you story along with photos on the Facebook Fan Page, or on twitter or instagram using the Hashtag #Nominusplus. Togther we can all put ourselves in You change your hair too damn much rehab! Hope you ladies enjoyed!! Until next time, love ya lots like tator tots!! XOXOXO
