makeup tutorial for black women

I filmed a nude makeup look using one of my favorite drugstore eyeshadow products, L’OREAL Amber Rush.  I picked the shadow out and fell in love with it immediately, and the entire look sort of developed around this shade! I love the formula, it is so buttery and pigmented, and it is a gorgeous wearable neutral shimmer for a wide range of skin tones.  I can honestly say I have never seen Amber Rush look bad on anyone!

Ombre Lip Tutorial: Nude Ombre Lip for Dark Skin

Ombre Lip Tutorial

Ombre lip colors and combinations have been all the rage for a while now.  They are the perfect way to introduce creativity and flair into your lipstick routine, and add a pop of color when you want some added drama! What I love most this lip is that it helps make any lip color more wearable on darker skin–by putting the lightest shade in the very center of the lips and keeping the rest of the lip darker, an ombre lip seamlessly blends the most dramatic colors while still making a statement.  Added bonus: ombre lip combos also help add volume and plump lips for a poutier look.

Thank you all so much for the positive feedback on my Black History Month video!  I got a bunch of questions about the brown ombre lip color that I was wearing in the video, so I decided to come on and do a quick video!  I used two liquid lipsticks and a brown lip liner to do this lip, so it is super simple especially since these colors are not rare.

Vampy Lip for Dark Skin

Vampy Lip for Dark Skin: Coloured Raine Tootsie Liquid Lipstick

vampy lip for dark skin

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog 🙂 I wanted to come on and film this video sort of like a goodbye to Winter (hopefully we will be saying hello to Spring soon!)  This is a reddish brown vampy lip that I have been LOVING recently and so I wanted to come on and share it with all of you.  What I love most about this look is how wearable it is for an everyday look this season, just shopping or going out to lunch or coffee, but it is also super glam! You could easily transition this look for a night out on the town, or keep it as is for a date or dinner with the girls 🙂 the liquid lipstick is budge proof, and wears very comfortably so it is worry free! Another great thing about this Vampy Red Lip: it is a gorgeous dramatic vampy color on so many skintones, even darker ones like mine.  Be sure to watch the makeup tutorial below to get the look! Enjoy 🙂
