2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Beauty Lovers

I honestly love Christmas and the holiday season as a whole. I love the mulled wine, decorating the tree, Christmas albums and of course the gifts. Obviously I love receiving them, but I get so much excitement out of researching and giving gifts to others. Sometimes it may seem daunting trying to get something that you know for a fact the person you’re gifting will absolutely love, so I definitely look to holiday gift guides for inspiration. I decided to…

Beauty Must-Haves For an Impromptu Night Away from Home

The other day my girlfriend Natalie and I were discussing items that women should always have in their purse when going out with a guy — you know, just in case you decide not to go home… If you’re like me, you usually travel with a mid to smaller sized cross body bag or clutch when out on the weekends, so we have to be strategic. Here are some purse / wallet friendly beauty must-have items I’d recommend keeping on…

My November Birchbox Products!

Birchbox is truly the easiest way to test out a variety of new beauty products and I highly recommend it for all beauty lovers. Here are my products for November! Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes ($16.50) A.K.A. eyeliner, haha. I love when brands give a fancy name to very simple products. My phases with eyeliner go in and out, I’ll spend months not wearing it to achieve a more “fresh faced” look, and then I’ve have a phase where I’m…

Recap: My Jamaican Vacation!

I’m back! So sorry for the long hiatus, I was on a beautiful vacation in my home island of Jamaica. I don’t believe I’ve mentioned this as of yet, but I was born there and moved to the U.S. when I was two years old —I actually have not been back since I was 5. So, this was a very overdue trip for me as an adult. I went away with my entire immediate family and we stayed at the…

I Love My: Hair Removal Gel By Veet!

Something I frequently discuss with other women is hair removal — most notably, hair removal “down there.” What’s the best way to go about it? What lasts the longest? What is the least painful? Honestly, it’s all about preference and finding the right products for your skin and needs. Personally, I’ve tried a few methods — shaving, normal waxing, sugar waxing and removal gels. My favorite to-date has to be hair removal gel. For a long time I would shave…

Natural AND Relaxed, Not Versus

I absolutely love being a black woman. I love my dark brown skin complexion, my somewhat “difficult” to pronounce name, my big lips, Jamaican roots…and my super thick relaxed hair. That’s right, I do not have natural hair. I definitely consider myself to be a pretty “woke” individual and am constantly discussing race relations, race in America and social issues that we face as black women with my friends. I am proud and feel that right now is such an…

Shea Moisture’s Powerful Debut TV Commercial

In my Welcome post for AishaBeau.com I sited an article that was featured on Refinery29 about the underrepresentation of Black women in the beauty industry. An issue that I feel strongly about and am glad to see is being brought to the forefront of the cosmetics conversation these days. Today while chatting with my girl Brittany, she shared with me the first ever television commercial from Shea Moisture and it really sparked some emotion from us both. When I posted…

The Grand Opening: Welcome to AishaBeau.com

I actually bought the domain for this site back in July of 2015. While on my way to a nail appointment, a woman approached me and asked about the makeup I was wearing, to which I gave her the lowdown on all of my favorite products and brands. We began discussing skincare routines and I was so excited that I almost missed my train stop. She said she was surprised that I didn’t work in the beauty and cosmetics industry since I seemed so passionate…
