Sooo….time for some updates.

But first….

Glad that you’ve jumped up on the bandwagon of make-up blogs, Ms. Riss!! I can’t wait to learn all the secrets and tricks of the trade from a professional like you!!

Okayyy….so after best friend left, I ran to MAC and picked up:

Some friggin’ Concealer….I have 1 fugly dark spot on my face that I am proud to announce is invisible with this stuff! My very first concealer. A special moment in a young woman’s life. *tear* LOL!

And then I got an eyebrow pencil. Scuse my moment but OMG, it’s like totally the best thing I’ve ever freaking come across! No seriously…..that pencil is the ish. It’s thin and the color is sooo close to my natural eyebrow color. I’m definitely mastering the eyebrows little by little. I’m so proud I could spit. Hehe…

And then I got another StudioFix compact because mine broke during an unfortunate incident at some hood-ass club. But I don’t even know why I purchased it because I’m staying away from face make-up for awhile. Except that concealer which actually looks okay alone. My skin needs a break. And I’ve gone back to my natural face care wash, toner and moisturizer.

Ohhhhhhhhhh……and my pigments came in on last Friday and I was so excited. I ordered 9 from miss lady off of Specktra (1165Cheryl….yall need to look chick up. She’s on point!). Her prices are extremely reasonable and she gives you an amble amount. I was so happy! And she hooked me up with one free piggie. I took a pic of some….

I absolutely love them! And then folx kept ravin’ about Vanilla pigment (which I forgot to order), but I got a sample from MAC when I picked up my other goodies. I am so excited! The Vanilla looks great on the lips. Anyone got any recs on some “must have” piggies for Women of color?

OH….here’s my FOTD for Thursday night’s awful.terrible.will never again go to that damn club experience:

Seee….and I know you can’t tell from this pic, but I was trying to go for some extreme cat eye look that I saw once and it just didn’t work out. I have to do some more practicing.

I ordered MAC’s FIRESPOT today!!!! From the Moothbathe collection. I know. I’m like 10 years late. ‘Bout time. I’ve been wanting that color forever.

Oh….I also purchased NARS’ Emmanuel. Did I mention that I am in LOVE with NARS’ colors. Why are they so beautiful?

I ran into a bump today while putting on some make-up. I’ve come to discover that virtually all of my colors are poooow….in yo face….see how purty my make-up is kind of stuff. Nooo, I don’t want that! I need some tone down colors and looks. Bad, like really bad. So I ended up wearing some boring ole’ Mythology and Vex and called it a day.

Boo and Boo’s Momma…I look boring and boring. HELP, I need some everyday pretty looks.

Deuces for now…..I don’t exactly know what else to buy in terms of products except a good mascara. I think I’ve hit a bump. Until I find some neutal looks, I’m going to be sad, depressed and withdrawn from MAC.

……my dramatic self. I know. The Academy Award goes to……………….

    ooh sis, lovin the new facelift. i’m proud of all of the things you are learning. when you make it to LA you’re going to have to show me some tricks. i’m going to have to check out that concealer from mac. i’ve never owned one either.

    and kudos for going back to the natural face care. what are you using?

    Rennnooo….hey boo. Thanks for stoppin’ by. I had to do some upgrading. The blog isn’t exactly where I want it to be just yet, but I’m getting there.

    As far as my face care products, I’ve been using some things that my Mother, the herbalist, made for me. They include:

    Face Wash: A mix of….you know what, I don’t even know!! I’m actually using Aveeno b/c what she made for me is too oily. *scorns Mom*

    Toner: Lavendar water or witch hazel.

    Moisturizer: Some blend of jojoba oil, rose water, etc. At night, I’ve always used Cocoa butter.

    And to zap these little heat bumps I have on my forehead, I use tea tree oil.

    ok so you definitely have to get ya moms to make me some stuff. i used to use blk soap but its way too drying. there are tons of natural care shops in south central LA so you and i are going to get up on that when you come.

  • Divine Blackness

    You’re so right. Black soap is waaaay too drying. I used to love that stuff. That and shea butter, but both are currently in the back of closet somewhere. Still love ’em, but my skin ain’t too keen on ’em right now.
