Ummmm it's #WCW and I HAVE to scream a ๐Ÿ—ฃHAPPY BIRTHDAY to this woman right here! @reneemadeulook ! Before it's too late lol An inspiration in my entire journey with my artistry! She may be tired of hearing it but I never get tired of expressing how much she helped me without even knowing it! I didn't even touch makeup until college guys, I was always told it just wasn't for me and I believed it. Renee did my makeup once and what she doesn't know is that same day was literally the first day of my life where everywhere I went , people were telling me how pretty I was! It was crazy! What she did for my confidence she'll never know! (Well until now lol). That sparked something in me not only as a consumer but as an artist! I wanted to deliver that same feeling to MANY other girls and women who felt like me! I dove into makeup so hard. And I continue to learn and strive for more! She's a mentor in my head and such an amazing talent! She's slaying the faces of some of your favorites y'all! If you're living under a rock, come out and follow her!

I can't wait to see what @vanessaevelynmakeup and @fashionfaircosmetics have been cooking up! I'm SO excited for this! I LOVE Fashion Fair. I can't think of anyone more INNOVATIVE and CREATIVE than Vanessa! (I'm a fan!) ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฟ Fashion Fair has always been the line that's your mother's best beauty secret. The brand that all the beautiful, sophisticated, classy, and intelligent mature women of color wore; the Claire Huxtables and the Aunt Vivs (the first one of course ๐Ÿ™ƒ) It's a line that's not only classic but RELIABLE! Because after all these years you, yourself grow up from playing in mom's makeup to finding and treasuring staple colors like KOLA and SABLE ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜You grow up to realize just how much it speaks to you, how much it has loved you, and appreciated the skin that you're in, all this time!! #ItsNoLongerASecret ๐Ÿ˜‰ #FashionFairCosmetics #FashionFair #Noitsnotanad #Ijustloveitthatmuch ๐Ÿ“ธPhotocred: @vanessaevelynmakeup

SKIN by @blackopalbeauty in "Ebony Brown" ๐Ÿซ LIPS by @lashesbylena -matte liquid lipstick in the color "Orlando" ๐Ÿ’‹

I'll be honest, I LOVE @Blackopalbeauty on everyone else BUT me! I didn't like the darker shades of the stick formula because I found it to be too yellow with almost a greenish tint when I wore it. (I'm used to this though my undertone isn't the easiest to match. ) So when they added some new shades to the line I decided to give "Ebony Brown" a try, and ummm I was PLEASANTLY surprised. The shade, coverage, and undertone has been one of the closest to my skin without me having to mix. I think I'll revisit the cream formula in this shade. What are some of your opinions on it??

@vyndsen shared their ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿฟโ˜๐Ÿฟ MUST HAVE lip liners from @maccosmetics and I couldn't agree more! In my opinion, you don't need to buy a matching lip liner with EVERY lipstick you buy. Ain't nobody got time for that! With these, you can create ANY lip look you want! Check out their blog for more! ๐Ÿ’‹ #ThankMeLater

MELANIN CRUSH MONDAY !!|isn't @godiva_n absolutely stunning? Don't sleep on organic food stores! My good friend @missdunnieo has never been shy to say that she met her hubby at Trader Joe's...well I didn't meet my husband (lol) but there was my new muse Nogaye! I wasn't shy to tell her how STUNNING I thought she was and about my Melanin to the Max movement with my artistry! We connected and this is one of the looks I created at my VIP day with @tiyanarobinsonbeauty ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฟ

I now see why "suede mocha" is such a popular foundation shade by @blackopalbeauty. I used it as a contour shade for @i_said_uhh and I love the natural warmth and dimension it adds to her face. โคโคโค

So excited that my sister in beauty @akuarobinson is hosting her first event in DC next month! She'll be answering questions that we ALL had when starting makeup. Everything from skin care basics to foundation matching, and the basics of doing a FULL face! Head over to her page to the link in her bio or head to www.elevatedbeauty.eventbrite.com #ThankMeLater๐Ÿ˜‰

Subtle barely there makeup is a major ๐Ÿ”‘ for TV! My inspiration with my model Monique was @gabunion in #BeingMaryJane. Fell in love with the makeup dept of that show even I literally discovered the show super LATE! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Applying makeup with a personality, story, and character breakdown in mind is personally something new to me and I LOVE adding that dimension to my artistry. My brain is working in a whole other way! Thank for your dedication, details, and PUSH @gozibeauty !!

Outside of my passion for melanated beauties, I also love artistry for TV & Film and if you know me you know that I love to LEARN! So excited to have been a part of @gozibeauty 's #TheRefinedArtistsPro cycle. The WEALTH of knowledge I've received has been BEYOND valuable! Thank you so much Gozi! You're an answered prayer ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟโค๏ธ TAP ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿฟfor detailed products of my set up station!

Thank you @tiyanarobinsonbeauty for capturing this! Right before my trip I spent a VIP day with Tiyana to push myself and continue to educate and elevate myself as an artist. I came out with so much clarity with not only my artistry but my brand as well. I'm working hard to bring the #MelanintotheMax movement to life y'all! No cutting corners for us! It's all about a FULL beauty experience for dark skinned beauties! Thank you Tiyana for your guidance and everyone else for the โค๏ธ!
