Blogger Quickie|Red Lips

Ya'll keep talking 'bout who next,
But I'm about as big as it gets
I swear ya'll just wastin' ya'll breath,
I'm the light skinned Keith Sweat,
I'm a make it last forever,
It's not your time 'cause I ain't done yet,
Look, just understand that I'm on a roll like Cottonelle,
I was made for all of this shit,
And I'm on the road box office sales,
I'm getting paid for all of this shit,
Ask you to please excuse my table manners,
I was making room for the table dancers,
'Cause if we judging off your advances,
I just got paid like eight advances, Got damn!
~All Me, Drake

What's up with all these Drizzy Drake lyrics? I already know. I've been listening to these songs on repeat and I love them. I really do. 

I love red lipsticks. I feel like my coolers were made for them. I really love a good matte red lipstick. My favorite of all time is MACs Ruby Woo (however, Belladonna 2 from melt is about to take its place because it's so super dope) but, Ruby Woo is extremely drying. Drying to the point where it's almost like prepping your natural hair to be straightened... You know, when you have to deep condition your hair Before and After you attack your fro with a flat iron. Yeah... straight. like. that...

My cousin Shayla always wears red lipstick and she always looks so dope in them. So pretty. I wanted to copy, but I did NOT want to wear Ruby Woo. So I grabbed Russian Red out of my stash and yo.... It's all love!

Snapping pics at work n'shit.

Sneak Peek | Bronze Goddess

I know girls love Beyoncé
Girls love to fuck with your conscience
Girls hate when niggas go missing and shawty you ain’t no different
These days it’s hard to meet women
Feel like my love life is finished
I’ve been avoiding commitment
That’s why I’m in this position
I’m scared to let somebody in on this
No new friends, no no no
You know how this shit go
You got your fair share of admirers that call your phone
You try to act like it’s just me, but I’m not alone
But if you’re alone then, say my name, say my name
~Drake, Girls Love Beyonce

I don't have a good reason for using this song today other than it was playing on Pandora while I was playing in makeup. O_o Yep, that's it. I love this song. It's actually one of my favorites from Mr. Octobers Very Own. 

Last night I was playing in my makeup and I came up with this look. 

That nose is slaying me in the most fantabulous way ever!!!

Perfect Match: A Drugstore Foundation Review (and Picture Demo)

Did you miss me?
No I don't know where I'm goin', but I'm goin', now is you comin' with me?

~God's Gift, J. Cole

I haven't blogged in a while. I've been so busy that I don't even think about posting pictures, makeup reviews and rants here. I'm sorry. Forgive me. To those of you who have stuck around I. Love. You. ALLLLLL! 

I won't bore you with the details of my life right now. So I'll get right into what this post is going to be about... Foundation!!

The process is real...

~Pound Cake, Drake feat. Jay-Z

You Should Be Here

You should be here
Let me show you what you're missin' every day
You should be here
Once I get you, you ain't never gonna walk away
You should be here
Well, I got more than just a big stick and some money
~Be Here, Raphael Saadiq

I'm a horrible blogger. I'm really, really, REALLY trying to do better. But I've been so busy that I haven't been able to blog about anything. I literally get up, go to work (3 jobs) and come home and sleep. Once I'm in that bed you can't tell me nothing. 

However, I need to do better. I should be here on blogger, loving life n'shit. So I'm going to start updating regularly again. Whoo-saah! I'm going to share a couple of FOTD's with you guys. Been going against my norm. Rocking pink lips and no liner --gasp!! Lol.

All. Smiles.
This is such a different look for me. No eyeshadow. No liner. Just lashes, normal face routine and lipstick!

Officially Back

So, I took a break from blogging. No announcement. Didn't even plan on it really, it just sort of happened.

My life has been a whirlwind of all kinds of crazy lately.

Moving: I moved out of my old apartment (I lived in the same apartment complex for 11 years!!) and had to wait for my new apartment to become available. While I was waiting I packed up the majority of my makeup and stored it at my mothers house while I moved in with my sister. I was supposed to stay with my sister for 3 weeks, 3 weeks turned into 5. No bueno. I rarely wore makeup and when I did I would post something to Instagram (straight flexin' --haha). I posted a couple looks here, but nothing consistently. I finally moved into my new place and really it doesn't feel like home. There have been a few issues with management, I don't like my neighbors, and I don't like my makeup set up either. O_o

My sister Shyree and me!!

Make Me Over

Hey, hey. How have you guys been? I miss you all to pieces. I almost thought about deleting my blog but decided against it!

I haven't been wearing much makeup lately (still warming up to the new place). But I have done a few makeovers for my portfolio!

Last weekend my bestie and her boo were going out for a night on the town. I volunteered to babysit and to paint her face.

Danielle does not wear a lot of makeup and when she does she likes neutral looks. Well, I talked her into wearing a red lip... Annnnndddd...

Dani D!

Eyes Never Lie

Fall is rapidly approaching and while I love a good deep bold lip, I think fall is a great time to play with the eyes as well.

Golds, Oranges, Browns... OH. MY!
