Gif Tutorial: How to Apply + Find the Right Highlighter For Your Skin Tone

Whether we’d like to believe it or not, it’s technically Spring. For those of you on the West Coast or somewhere beautiful / tropical / happy, you probably don’t know why I say this, but New York is really in a funk right now weather-wise. Nevertheless, the sun will (hopefully) eventually come out and it will be what I like to call “highlighter season.” Yes, you can wear highlighter year round, but Spring and Summer is the best time to…

How I Found An Affordable Therapist, Using Open Path

I am honestly so grateful for the outpouring of support since my recent post on the importance of mental health — the response was what I wanted. Not people saying they were so sorry for me, but instead that it moved or encouraged them to seek out help themselves. A number of people expressed to me the desire to begin therapy but that it was just too expensive, or that their insurance didn’t cover it. Fortunately, I actually had a…

I Finally Did a Twist Out on My TWA, Here’s How!

My oh my, what a long way I have come — what a long way I have come! I am pleased to say that my hair is finally at a length in which I can do more to it than a simple ‘Wash and Go’, haha! I recently began practicing how to do Twist-Outs and after a few failed attempts, finally found a method and product combination that worked for me. So of course, I had to record a tutorial.…

1st Step to Self-Care? Tackling Mental Health

Mental Health, Therapy for Black Women, Black Therapists

Anxiety Disorder is something I’ve had for as long as I can remember…before I even knew what it was. There were mornings in middle and high school in which I’d wake up feeling heavy, nervous and afraid to even leave my bed. I’d cry to my mother and beg to stay home those days, to which I’d be met with annoyance and hurried along to get dressed. Looking back at these times, I’m not mad at her for still making…

Big Chop Update – 6 Months In!

Big Chop, TWA, Natural Hair

I didn’t think I’d ever chop all of my hair off — let alone make it to being fully natural for what is now half a year! I am so excited to highlight making it past the 6 month mark since my big chop back in August. My hair is still in tact, it’s actually looking better than ever — and I’m not itching to go back on the “Creamy Crack” (a.k.a Relaxer). Thus far, my journey has been a…

The Splurge Worthy Overnight Mask by LXMI That Saved My Winter Skin

LXMI

My skin has been going cray-zee lately and I’m not freakin’ kidding. I’ve written numerous times about the fact that I have very, very oily skin, which is still the case but lately it has been looking super parched. I chalk it up to stress at work because your girl has been guzzling water constantly, maintaining a strict nightly skincare routine and minding my business. Yet, there was still something missing. I’ve been trying a number of oils and serums to combat…

Glossier Launched their Lidstar Eye Shadow During the Oscars, My Girlfriends + I Were the First to Try Them Out!

As those of you who frequent AishaBeau.com know, I have been a Glossier Brand Rep for quite some time now — however, it hasn’t been until recently that they’ve asked me to be one of the few to help launch a new product. So needless to say, I was SO excited when they e-mailed about Lidstar ($18). This past Sunday, Glossier planned to debut Lidstar, their first ever eye shadow, on a number of celebs walking the Oscar’s red carpet.…

The Too Faced Mascara That Brought My Lash Game to the Next Level

I want to begin this post by mentioning that this product is not new — but I just want to make very sure that everyone I know is well aware of this mascara, because it is the absolute best. I had heard about it previously but it wasn’t until I got the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara ($23) in a Sephora gift box two Christmas’ ago that I became a believer. I’m honestly so disappointed in myself for not having reviewed…
