Non-Red Lip Colors for Valentine’s Day!

I love red lipstick. To me it’s the perfect color and goes so well with almost everything I wear. It just brightens the mood. BUT, for Valentine’s Day let’s admit — it’s super cliché. With V-Day only a few days away I wanted to round up a few lip colors that were more unexpected to spice things up. For my shoot I went a little extreme and rocked a black lipstick from Black | Up ($23). However, here are some…

New Year’s Eve Beauty Inspiration

I’ll admit, I tried to skip going out for New Year’s this year, but I’m such a sucker for getting dressed up that when I was doing the shoot for this post I got a serious case of FOMO. Afterwards I texted my girlfriend like, what we doin’?! I just love an opportunity to go all out with my look and New Year’s Eve is always the most fun. Whether you decide to keep it to an intimate house party,…

Can Lip Gloss Make a Comeback?

In middle school, you couldn’t tell me nothin’ when it came to the amount of lip gloss I wore. I literally had tubes and tubes of clear Lip Smacker gloss, and I didn’t use it sparingly. Eventually (along with the hoop earrings) this started to fade out of my day-to-day look. Nowadays I prefer a bold lipstick, usually matte. However, I’ve been curious as of late to explore the realm of gloss once more. So, I decided to test out…

Black | Up Cosmetics

Initially this story was going to be solely about a new foundation that I am trying out for the spring by Black | Up cosmetics. However, once I got my hands on a few more products from the brand, I fell in love and had to give you all the low down on the company overall. Black | Up is a Parisian cosmetics brand that caters to women of darker skin tones, and has recently launched in the U.S. As…
