A Nude Lipstick Perfect for My Complexion!

It’s no surprise that I like an eye catching lip color, but I’ve always envied those who can pull off a matte nude look. As a woman with darker skin, finding a neutral nude was actually more difficult than I’d like to admit. I tried a number of different brands and shades, but everything just made my lips look ashy. I decided to give up the search and chalked it up to the fact that brighter colors look better on…

Face Time with Chantz Brewer

I have so many wonderful and amazing women friends and when conceptualizing my blog I knew that at some point I wanted to highlight each of them, what they do and of course their beauty routine.

For my shoot I went a little extreme and rocked a black lipstick from Black | Up ($23). However, here are some…

The Best Blue Nail Polish Ever, By Gelish

A good blue polish is hard to come by. Which is why I just had to share details on this color I recently applied to my nails from Gelish in “Mali-Blu Me Away.” ($13) It is bold and radiant enough that it makes a statement, but somehow remains neutral enough not to clash with any colors I’m wearing. In the photos the polish is actually about a week old and still upheld the shine, and it hasn’t chipped! I’m writing this…
