One of the most frequently asked questions during the early stages of my hair journey was about my hair color and how did I achieve it. I can tell you one thing; it definitely was not an overnight/instant process :(. Hair color can be very damaging if not done correctly or by a professional. In this video I will show you how I gradually got the color desired and my journey with hair color from 2012- 2014.

I was utterly obsessed with this video/song when it first came out and was inspired by the Queen herself Ms. Badu to recreate this look from Janelle Monae’s video Q.U.E.E.N. In this tutorial I will show you how to create a basic cut crease eyeshadow like the one she is sporting in her video. P.S. I am wearing a wig I made myself using Mercy Extensions Mongolian Kinky hair.

Check out my tutorial for this look below:

Marley Twists are a great go-to summer hairstyle when in need of a break from your natural hair. Not only do I find these being one of the easiest protective hairstyles to achieve, but they also last a pretty decent amount of time (give or take about 3-4 weeks). I used Marley hair to achieve this look and total time it took to complete was about 3 hours. For the blonde hair I used #27 and for the darker hair I used #2, check out the tutorial below for a quick DIY guide.

Absolutely loving my new lip crayon from Burt’s Bee’s! If you are into natural makeup, then this little gem here is perfect for you. It has a creamy-matte finish and is made with 100 percent natural ingredients. I love the fact that it is really moisturizing and well pigmented. It’s a jumble pencil but no need to sharpen it, you can just simply twist the bottom to push up the lipstick. By the way, I am wearing the shade Carolina Coast (423). Natural makeup for the win, I’m sold!

Ingredients:
Shea Butter — Shea Butter helps to hydrate and moisturize dry lips leaving them feeling soft and smooch-worthy smooth.
Enriched with conditioning Jojoba Oil and Kendi Oil, which are chock full of Omega 3 to hydrate and moisturize lips. And don’t forget the Shea Butter for an extra dose of moisture.
I purchased this at Bed Bath & Beyond, but you can totally find this product at any beauty or local drugstore and online.
