I’m totally excited about this new series. And I’m going to have to discuss some issues I’ve already covered. Just for the sake of the series.
And yall know I can’t do this alone so I’m going to need reader submissions, pictures and suggestions.
Check this out.
Oh…got a bit excited.
First series post..
But Black Women Can’t…..wear orange lipstick.
As my boy Martin Lawrence would say, “Somebody dun told you wrong.”
I promised myself that I would re-visit Electro from the Neo Sci-Fi collection. I tried it on in the store and wanted to scream. My BFF make-up artist swore up and down that I looked beautiful and I know he wouldn’t lie but I wasn’t convinced. Still, I took that and Pink Grapefruit lip glass home to play around with in my own lighting.
(Is it me or does MAC’s lighting make you feel like a superstar and then you get home to your own bathroom and feel like an Ugly Betty. What kind of bulbs do they have?)
I’m going to keep it real with yall, so get ready for some laughs. I know I was doubled over in tears when I saw this.
Electro with 3 coats.
And I ain’t showin’ yall the full face because it’s awful!
I’m thinkin’ we as Black women (well us darker Black women) CAN wear this orange lipstick. But sheer. Check it with one coat.
See, not as scary.
And when topped off with Pink Grapefruit Lipglass….well, it’s just perfect for summer.
