SAG Awards 2017 Nominees Beauty Challenge| Uzo Aduba

SAG Awards 2017

Hey Loves,

I always love using my favorite celebs as a source of inspiration. So when a few of my blogger babes teamed up to a SAG Awards 2017 Nominees beauty challenge, I was totally on board. The SAG awards will air January 29th, it’s actually one of the few award shows during award season that I actually like to watch.  For my look, I picked the beautiful chocolate beauty Uzo Aduba. She is nominated for best actress in a comedy series for her role as Suzanne in Netflix hit show Orange is the New Black.  Her look is so simple but is speaks volumes. I love that the focus was on her beautiful eyes, her full lips, and cheeks.  Be sure to check my girl Crystal from Society of Harlow’s post. I’m sure her look will be amazing. Let’s check out my look!

Splurge or Save: Eyebrow Pencils

Hey Loves,

So I’m sure you’ve seen that one girl with brows that make you question life lol. I feel like 2015 is the year of people working to get there brows to be…how the young people say…on fleek lol. I am someone that loves a good high end product when it comes to makeup. I feel like the quality is better, it last a bit longer. But the way my pockets are set up, I can splurge all the time on everything I want. But it also worth knowing that some drug store brands give these high end products a real run for their money. Never sleep on drug store products. You may just be pleasantly surprised, and may find a new obsession.

#GirlsCan

Hey Loves, 

You all know I love inspirational post. So COVERGIRL has the new #girlscan campaign that is exclusively with Walmart. The COVERGIRL #GirlsCan campaign promotes the empowerment of women by encouraging them to break down barriers and turn “can’t” into “can”. COVERGIRL is turning “can’t” into “can” by donating $50,000 to Dress for Success®. So read on to check out my #girlscan story & learn how you can win a $25 Walmart gift card.

Some of you know my story with unemployment. back in 2012 I was let go from a my 1st full time job. At the time I was really hurt because it truly came out of left field. I was sitting with my boss and she was telling me that I was going to get a new client, and I was going to be trusted with more work. Less than a week later the HR department told me my boss felt like was no longer a fit for the job.
In the moment I was pissed because this is the 1st time I dealing with the BS of corporate America. How can you say you want to give more work, but then a few days later, I’m not fit for the position. I did harbor a lot of bad feelings. I was angry & quite bitter. I didn’t know how it would be received by other companies. Having to admit that you were fired doesn’t look so good in interviews. 
But my silver lining…my #girlscan moment, after I loss my job, I was able to take some time to learn a new profession, I was able to devote more time to my blog, I was able to be on Good Morning America, I’ve able to really learn how to stay strong for myself. I believe God pulled me out of the situation because it wasn’t good for me. Having a freelance lifestyle now is different and is all about the hustle, but I do believe that something awesome will come.

COVERGIRL #GirlsCan mascaras come in 2 varieties at Walmart everyday low prices: COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara and COVERGIRL Professional All-in-One Mascara. 

So tell me what is your #GirlsCan Story?!!!

BA STAR Tropical Eye Shadow Palette

BA STAR Tropical Eye Shadow Palette

Hey Loves,

I got a chance to test out the new BA Star Tropical Palette. When I 1st saw the palette I immediately thought about what looks I could possibly come up with. I can say it took some time and some failures. But once I got the right look I was hooked. It’s absolutely the perfect palette for the summer. 

BA STAR was developed by Makeup Professionals Just for You! Build Your Confidence. Inner Beauty & Strength. Always Be True to Yourself.

Look how beautifully pigmented the colors are. Just one swipe this is the color pay off. 

BA STAR Tropical Eye Shadow Palette Swatches

This is the look I came up with. I figured with Pride Weekend just passing I would try my best to use all the colors in the palette. 

BA STAR Tropical Eye Shadow Palette

The shadows do have fallout when putting them on, but if you use a nice compact eye shadow brush that would help decrease some of the fallout.

There you have it loves! I will be doing a youtube video on this look. Be on the look out!
