Fancy Peacock

Hey beauties:

Here's another quick post of my fancy peacock makeup look. The "peacock" makeup look has been created and recreated so many times. True peacock colors are blue, yellow and green but you will note from my re-creation that I have incorporated purple and fushia to give my peacock a little umph!

Here is a quick post on my 'daytime' version of Ledisi's signature up-do hairstyle. I say daytime for this version because if I were going out at night, I would have brought the front of my hair lower on to my forehead just as she wears it, but I did not want to go all out for the daytime.

It is actually a very easy hairstyle and I would encourage you to try this look if you want a unique, simple yet sophisticated look.

Ledisi Young- super, awesome, talented RnB/Jazz/Gospel singer

How I do my brows!!

Hi beauties:

As you all know (or should know), your brows frame your face. If you did not know this, well now you do.

Ungroomed brows in my opinion look horrible. No matter how fierce your makeup is, if your brows are unruly and out of shape, then your makeup does not look completed.

One of the most frequently asked questions that I receive other than 'is your hair real', is "who does your brows"? Well the answer to that is, "I do my brows". So today, I wanted to share a quick step-by-step pictorial of how I do my brows.

Feel free to try it and let me know how it works out. It may look like alot of steps but once you get the hang of it, it does not take long.

STEP 1- Brush/comb your brows upward with a brow brush/ comb or a clean toothbrush

STEP 2- With a brow liner, line the bottom of your brow with a color that is about 2 shades lighter than your hair (on your head) color, following your natural brow shape 

STEP 3- With the same brow liner, line the top of your brow about 1/3 of the way, following your natural brow shape

STEP 4- Using a small angled brush, blend the brow liner to remove the harsh line you drew

STEP 5- Using another small angled brush, define the brow by applying concealer (about 2-3 shades lighter than your complexion) under the brow

STEP 6- Using the same angled brush used to apply the concealer, drag the concealer downward

STEP 7- Blend the concealer

STEP 8- That's it!
