Bobbibrown revue

Today my post will be shorter than usual it’s a review of two of my favorite products

I have been using the Bobbi Brown foundation stick for a while now. I honestly love it, my best foundation thus far.The minute I apply it, it blends so well on my skin creating a flawless velvety finish. We all love a flawless look when we put foundation and it doesn’t crack on the skin after a long day. Its very light, you don’t feel like you have a mask on. I’ve tried foundations where I felt a bit heavy on my face. Really there’s nothing bad I can say about this foundation and I mean the packaging is excellent as well no smudging or anything of that sort. You will have to try it to understand.

I asked to do a review of their lipstick which I hope will be one of many reviews I’ll be doing with them.I love lipsticks which is why I chose them first. They sent me this amazing rum raisin. I think this color is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for the season. I always stress the fact that I have dry lips and when it comes to lipsticks I take extra precaution. This Bobbi brown lipstick is so amazing on my lips, it has a creamy texture and it’s moisturizing. It’s semi matte and long wear. I just love it. The look and finish it gives is amazing, on the picture below I applied three layers just to give it that extra punch. That’s versatility right? you can either have it light or strong just like your coffee.

Here is a link to this amazing Bobbi brown lipstick must have should you feel like it’s needed. https://www.octoly.com/c/hbnm9/r/has3t

Blazer Love

Don’t you just love blazers, there’s something chic about a woman in a blazer. Honestly I never really liked my blazer at school, my long arms were the reason because it could never reach my wrists. Such a petty reason to dislike something right? At this time I was plagued with insecurities. I remember a time I would slouch because I felt too tall or only wear sports bras because my boobs were too big. There’s just so many negative reasons we feel our heads with when growing up. Sometimes they are stuck with us for the rest of our lives, sometimes we embrace them and find beauty in our flaws.

I love blazers now that I’ve done a bit of growing up. My favorites are the checked blazers. They are so unique, they give a very classy and timeless appearance. I sometimes hear ladies thinking that certain items are not suited for them. I can assure you blazers are suited for every body and they are very versatile. They come in different styles, shapes and sizes. Small framed women can get away with any style, the same with medium framed women while large framed women look best when the blazer has no back slit as they tend to lift I find. So no excuses ladies, if you always wanted a blazer but felt insecure about wearing it, please toss those insecurities and embrace those flaws and get yourselves a blazer.

You can wear it going to the office, running errands,drinks with friends you name it. Whatever the occasion a blazer will accommodate it.

Here are a few blazer inspirations from Pinterest to further convince you to buy a blazer. You can also click on my Instagram shop in the menu button to shop or see whether you can find some good blazers that won’t kill or kill your budget. Happy shopping.

Home is where your make up stash is

 

As a model of color its always a struggle when you arrive on set excited about the job but worried about how you will look and who your make up artist is.

Makeup artists often dont have all the shades and you are faced with looking a shade or two lighter or darker and looking ghostly at times. I always make it a point to bring my own makeup and educate myself. No one is stealing my shine with bad makeup.

Finding out about fenty beauty I understood immediately where the hype is coming from and honestly it is the best thing that has happened to people of color and with good reason. I remember seeing a clip of a three shades darker lady buying her fenty foundation and she was in tears.

So i decided to buy myself the fenty rum and truffe stix for highlighting and contouring. Im happy to say im inlove and i love the convenience. Im also a mom so my time is limited and the match stix are the future as i dont have to spend hours doing makeup.

I achieved these two looks: day and night by using the following:

Bobbi brown foundation stick @bobbibrown, fenty rum and truffe match stix @fentybeauty,eyeliner,mascara and lipstick @maccosmetics,eyeshadow @clinique

Below are a few of my favorites which you can buy.
