& everything in between.
My love for organized and creative artists who coordinate themes into all of their releases has played a big part in my love for Bishop. His upcoming LP “Rose Gold” has a set release date for New Years Eve and just like clockwork, he’s giving us teasers left and right. His latest single, A.G.E., dropped today and umm.. I’m loving how this artwork looks alongside my blog theme. New music and new eye candy from another beloved South Florida artist. I’m starting to feel a little bias but Florida is giving me nothing but fire! Listen up…
I’m starting a new post series on all things beauty titled No Boys Allowed. I’ll be featuring all of my favorite makeup and nail products along with trials and recommendations for every beauty queen who visits this blog. There’s no better way to launch this series than by touching on a common subject that I’ve been meaning to cover.
I get asked this question before I’m even asked my name. What’s on your face? What are you wearing? What kind of makeup is that? Like any other beauty junkie, I go through different brands of foundation monthly in search of the one that will make my skin glow like a goddess.
However, more than often my quest for the fake foundation of youth is unsuccessful and stressful, leaving me back at my starting point with the only collection that doesn’t disappoint.
Maybelline Fit Me has been my go-to routine for the past couple of years, and as my skin tone changes with the seasons, I fluctuate between various numbers. Let’s start with my base concealer..
Step 1: Concealer (Number 20)
Smooth and creamy, leaves no streaks and lasts up to 6 hours without any primer or set-in spray. Be sure to stay away from pink tones if your face already carries natural redness. This yellow shade balances out my redness perfectly.
Step 2: Foundation (Number 210)
This is my ideal color during the winter when I’m a little bit on the pale side. I only use this liquid foundation when I need extra coverage or a more intense look. It can be applied seamlessly and blends well with the concealer. However, I would stay away from this if your face tends to be oily. After a couple of hours, my T-Zone requires some attention even though I have normal skin.
Step 3: Powder (Number 240)
This shade was recently added to the Fit Me line and it matches my skin well when I’m starting to tan. I use this on top of my concealer/foundation to set in my makeup and achieve an airbrushed look. It doesn’t cake, it helps tone down any oiliness from the foundation, and lasts forever.
These three steps help me achieve a fresh face, along with a skincare routine of course. If I forget to wash my face or remove my makeup at night, a blemish will be waiting for me in the morning. Take care of your skin! You’ll thank me later.
I keep hearing word that magic has a special birthplace at The Chateau, Mr. Compliment’s studio. This time around the room was flooded with talent with the likes of The Anthology, the Distinguished Chimps, Rapper Rich, and even SIN. The latest track coming out of The Chateau was produced by The Anthology and Mr. Compliment which features Rapper Rich doing what he does best. The smoothness of this production is damn near contagious, what an excellent job boys.
