Erykah Badu Inspired Q.U.E.E.N. Makeup Tutorial

07.07.15

I mean, who wasn’t utterly obsessed with the Q.U.E.E.N. video/song when it first came out? It had all of the Black Girl Magic vibes. Of course, I was inspired by the Queen herself Ms. Badu, to recreate this whole 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 the video. P.S. I am wearing a wig I made myself using Mercy Hair extensions in the Mongolian Kinky hair.

Marley Twists Tutorial

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.

Burts Bee’s Lip Crayon (100% Natural)

Did you know Burts Bee makes some pretty dope lippies? They are primarily known for most of their chapsticks, but I am absolutely loving my new lip crayon in the shade Carolina Coast (423). 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 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. Natural makeup for the win! Have you tried any of their lip crayons?

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.
