Sometimes wearing brown can be tricky. On us melanin girls it might make us look a little nakey, but that’s not always a bad thing! If you want to give your black a break ( but TBH who really does) feel free to switch it up and try chocolate brown. It will compliment any skin tone and is really easy to style. 
 Dress it up
Jacket: Calvin Kline
Belt: Gifted
Shoes: Ashley Stewart

Jacket: Rachel Roy (Thrifted)
Orange is pretty much my go-to color all year round. It’s perfect for warmer because it’s bright and fun, and great for colder weather because it compliments so many neural and dark colors.

 A wise woman once told me:” I don’t trust anybody that doesn’t like the color blue” I really honestly believe in my heart that she is so right! Who doesn’t love blue? It’s just such a good color! It has been my fave color my whole life, and it never fails me!

Color Commentary: Complementary Lookbook

Hello All My Darling Divas!

We have finally reached the last Color Commentary of The Power of Color series, and I am sad to see this series go! We have had such a fabulous color party, but as we know all good things must come to an end. Today we are doing the breakdown of the most recent and last lookbook which is Complementary. If you have missed any of The Power of Color series, no worries! Click below to catch up!

And now you can enjoy today’s video! 

I hope you have enjoyed the last color commentary! This series was such a joy to create! Let’s recap! 
 Look 1
This look was actually a dress and skirt layered to create one look, so I decided to give you tips on how to style both pieces! The burgundy top is actually a dress, and you can pair it with tall brown boots and a bucket back for a simple and beautiful look for work. If you want to still have a simple Christmas vibe with the Eloquii green skirt, you can pair it with a striped top, black pointed flats, and a red clutch to be ready for a holiday party in a flash! 

 Look 2 
 This look right here just gives me so much life, and it’s all thanks to this fantastic lemon blazer!! This look is pretty wearable on its own, but if you want to switch it up, I would swap out the yellow blazer for a black one. This tones the look down a bit. Just add black boots, a purple back to color coordinate, and you’re ready for casual Friday!
Look 3 
Woah! Curves are coming your way with this look! I love orange and blue so much, so it’s no secret that it’s my fave! I would just add a pair of tall caramel boots, a funky and fashionable cheetah beret, and gold accessories to create a high fashion look for the season! 

So that concludes The Power of Color series! I hope you all had a wonderful time taking this color journey with me! Be sure to follow me on social media to see the rest of my colorful makeup looks! The links are all above, and I am working on each lookbook having its own board on Pinterest, so stay tuned! I am going to take a bit of a break to reset, so I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you on Nov 8th with our regularly scheduled programming!

Color Commentary: Analogous Lookbook

Hello, All My Darling Divas,

Welcome to the third Color Commentary for The Power of Color series happening this month at NoMinusPlus! This week’s lookbook was Analogous, and if you missed that then click here to check it out! This lookbook falls right in line with the others. Delivering a punch of color, and we are here to show you the break down of those looks. So enough of this intro lets begin!

I hope you loved the That’s So Raven Vibes that I am giving you today, and all of the duo looks that I have shown with the Analogous lookbook! Let’s recap.
LOOK 1
 This beautiful color combo is definitely spring and summer-worthy, but can still be rocked during winter and Fall. For this look, I gave you two looks for the two separate pieces. If you want to rock just the kimono, you can pair it with a brown t-shirt, a pair of distressed jeans, and a pair of tall tan boots for a casual look that is perfect for early fall! This orange dress will be a hit for your next night out! Just pair it with gold accessories, a sexy pump, and animal print clutch to compliment the orange and give thelook some texture. 
LOOK 2
This look was actually inspired by the look above, so I gave you some similar styling tips that you are also going to love. This printed tunic top will be great for tucking into a beautiful skirt with a pair of colored pumps to compliment it for a bold and beautiful look for an interview or date night! Looking for a more casual look? Rock the dress with a pair of sneakers, a jean jacket, and backpack for a super laid-back look that is great for mom’s on the go, or a comfortable babe who is hanging out with friends.  
 Look 3 
Shorts can DEFINITELY be rocked during colder months, but it’s all in how you layer it. Style your favorite pair of shorts with a thick pair of tights, an oversized sweater, and tall boots for a super stylish look that is great for pumpkin picking! You know I am pretty much obsessed with creating work looks now, so you can style the blouse and blazer with a pair of light-colored trousers and pumps to have your outfit be the topic of conversation at the water cooler! 
Ladies and Gents that wraps up the third Color Commentary for The Power of Color lookbook Analogous! Next week wraps up this color-tastic series, so you definitely want to come back on Wed and Friday to check out the finale! Are you following me on social media? You should be! Click the links below to check out all the makeup looks that I have been doing that is inspired by The Power of Color lookbooks.

The Power of Color:Analogous

Hello, All My Darling Divas,
We have reached the third week of The Power of Color series! This colorful treat will be coming to an end next week, and I hope you have been enjoying it so far! This week’s color combo is Analogous and is just as vibrant as it’s fellow lookbooks Primary and Tertiary. So let’s get into today’s color lesson! 

Analogous
colors that are next to each other on the color wheel
 This lookbook is coming at you with a lot of layers! Whenever I can layer something, it’s always a good day for me! 
Look 1 
Color Combo ( Pink, Purple, and Red)
Blazer:JcPenny
Top: Ashley Stewart
Shorts: Rainbow Shops
Shoes: Payless

I felt like an earthly goddess in this color combo! The mixture of all the colors just compliment each other so well, and I just LOVE how the background makes the outfit pop. I can’t wait for Summer to come back around so that I can rock this look! 
Look 2 
Color Combo( Yellow, Orange, Green)
 Kimono: Melissa Mccarthy Via Dia&Co
Dress: Fashion to Figure
Clutch: Dia&Co
Shoes: JustFab

Now our last lookbook had a similar color combo, but I had to switch it up to make it a bit different, This look was inspired by the look you see above, but I have to say I love how even those two looks still aren’t the same! I surprised myself a lot with how I created my looks! 
Look 3 
Color Combo:( Purple, Blue, Green)
 Printed top: Melissa Mccarthy Via Dia&Co
Dress: Fashion to Figure
Shoes: Payless

Week three of the power of color series is now done, and we just have one more week left! Remember to come back on Friday for the Color Commentary for this lookbook, and follow me on social media for more colorful fun! I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you on Friday!
