I have always been a fan of Sonia Kashuk’s brushes, so when I was able to finally get my hands on her latest set – the exclusive Knockout Beauty Collection, which debuted in Target early this March – I was beyond ecstatic! The line was created by Sonia herself, along with the artist Dana Louise Kirkpatrick, to empower women with inspiring messages like “love is all you need” and “you are a knockout”. These messages are cute little reminders as I apply my makeup each day. The set includes: a Powder Brush, Blush Brush, Applicator Brush, Concealer Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Eyeliner Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Smudge Brush, Lip Color Brush, Eyebrow Comb/Brush. Along with the collection, I also purchased the Matte Lipstick in “Power Punch”, which is a beautiful vibrant red. View Post

New York’s Fall 2016 Fashion Week and Dark and Lovely Au Naturale opened the show with a bang! The theme, I Am Dark and Lovely, was all about embracing all aspects of the African American woman and everything it embodies. The event featured an array of designers, showcasing women with every texture, length and style. Finally a runway show primarily focusing on afro-textured hair. Check out the highlights below.
