Lipstick Tips
  • Adding a lip liner will make your lips look fuller, and can also help change the color of your lipstick. So if you want a darker or lighter shade of lipstick, blend your lipstick with a lip liner!
  • Be sure your lips are moisturized and cared for. You don’t want lipstick on cracked lips! I always moisturize my lips using Blistex
  • Maybeline always has lipstick color collections. So if you are on a budget, look to them first! They actually have a lipstick collection for every color discussed in today’s video.
  • Apply a gloss to the top of your lipstick to create a shiny finish

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!

My Top 10 Skincare/Makeup Essentials for the Summer

Hello All My Darling Divas!!!!

Sooo as you know it’s getting a bit warmer out. So that means that my skin starts to act crazy, and my makeup is always melting off my face. My top 10 products help me keep my skin clear, and my makeup on. I also created a Top 10 list of my essential natural hair products a couple of years ago. This post is inspired by that. You can check out that blog post here. Meet me under the video for more pictures and info!

 
Did you enjoy the video? Did you love my Flawless moment in the beginning of the video? I added that in there especially for my Beyonce lovers. But anywhooo, listed are my 10 products, a lil more info on them, and where you can buy them.
1. Cleanser- St Ives Apricot Scrub
So this stuff is BOMB! And its super affordable! I purchase mine at walmart and it usually comes in a two pack so I get two for the price of one. You cant beat a good deal! 
2. Astringent- Clean and Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent
This stuff REALLY cleans my skin! I purchase this from target, and trust me a lil bit goes a long way. 
3. Toner- Shea Moistrue African Black Soap Toner
Im just now starting off with this product, but so far I like it! Shea Moisture already makes some of my fave hair products, so its only right that I test out there skincare products. I purchased this also from target. 
4. Moisturizer- Up&Up Target Brand Moisturizer
This stuff right here is def a Staple product for me. Its cheap and always gets the job done! I purchase a pretty generous sized bottle from target. Try it and I swear you wont regret it. 
 
Like I said in my video, my brows have to ALWAYS be snatched to the gawds! I feel naked without throwing some brows on. My go to brow kit since the new year started is this BH Cosmetics pallet, and I don’t plan on ever looking back!
Brows and Concealer go hand in hand. So I cant have brows as an essential, without following up with my concealer. This is great for me in the summer because I clean up my look without packing on the makeup. My concealer can keep up with the demanding warm weather, which makes it perfect for the summer. 
7. BB Cream- Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream
On the nights where I need to be flawless and perfect looking, I grab this BB Cream because it is truly the best! It gives me great coverage while still being light weight on m
y face. Its perfect for the summer, but I don’t use it all the time. Only for special occasions. I purchased this from Target.
8. Beauty Blender-Forever21
Now this isnt the ACTUAL beauty blender, but this faux one from Forever21 is just as good! I love how it easily applies my makeup.
9.Blistex
This keeps my lips feeling really moisturized during the summer. The summer sun can make my lips feel really dry and cracked. My Blistex ensures that my lips stay hydrated to beat out the summer sun. 

10. Lipstick
This is probably THE MOST IMPORTANT item on my list! I have various shades and colors, and the summer time is when I really express my look using my lipstick. I have really become a makeup junkie, and will soon be recording a lil lipstick collection lookbook to show everyone!

So that’s it ladies! What are some of your favorite summer essentials? Comment and let me know below! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites, they are all linked above!
Until next time ladies, love ya lots like tator tots, and see you in my next video!
