Smokey Eyes easy as 1-2-3s

Hey Beauties!!! Man i feel so lost without my IPhone, tell me why i let my daughter play with it inside the store and she dropped it, BAM!!! And i just recently took off my protector case that ran me $50 to prevent stuff like this from happening, bc this has happened with the case but it never broke, but i wanted the case off bc i liked how it felt without it, slim not bulky...and yes, she broke it =( i feel so lost lol, like seriously, this is how i usually check my emails, do my instant messenger, text of course, YouTube and even blog from...and i cant forget i play poker, my favorite game on it too...its been a hard week i tell you. But good news---I'm taking it to Apple this weekend in Chicago to get it replaced so ill be back to normal soon lol...now lets move on with this blog post...smokey eyes

Do you love the smokey eyes like i do...before it was just the black smokey eye that was popular but now you can choose from so many color combos of the smokey eye and create a look just for you...don't know how? well follow these basics...

What you will need:::

1. Primer (if you want your shadow to last all day)

2. 2 shadows of your choice, light and dark.

3. Makeup brushes, eyeshadow brush and blending brush

4. Eyeliner

5. Mascara

Time Required: 10 Min's


1. Prep your lid with a primer of choice. Let the primer dry before you continue on. This will help your eyeshadow last all day. I like Urban Decay Primer Potion and ELF primer.

2. Apply Eyeliner. If you are going for the dark smokey eyes like black or gray, then you are going to want to use a black or brown eyeliner. apply to top and bottom lash line and thicker in the upper middle. If you are going for a lighter smokey eye like purple or blue then use a purple or blue liner. (tip: best eyeliners, pencil eyeliner are great for smudging for a smokey look but it needs to be set with an eyeshadow to last, liquid liners are the best but takes time how to apply it flawlessly and gel eyeliners are the perfect balance between both pencil and liquid. MAC gel liner-Wet&Wild liquid liner-MAC power point pencil)

3. Blend in color on bottom lash line, for this you will want to use an eye pencil since its easier to smudge. Once you draw your line with the pencil, you can run your finger through it to smudge it out. Then run some shadow to get more of the smudge effect.

4. Apply a light base color. You can use a cream as your base for that extra smooth look. Sweep a light color over your lids to your brow bone.

5. Blend in darker color, but keep dark color below your crease. Since you already have your liner and base on, now its time to get smokey lol, get your darker shadow out. Using your eyeshadow brush, blend in color starting at your lash line, blending up! Make sure to blend color into the lash line so the eyeliner Disappears. Stop deep color at crease, the KEY is to BLEND-BLEND-BLEND!=)

6. Look over your creation and make sure both eyes match and use a q-tip to blend more if you need too.

7. Apply Mascara, you want to apply several coats of mascara here to make your lashes more dramatic and thicker looking. You can also curl your lashes to give it that extra curl. I prefer a heated eyelash curler for better results.


-When you are wearing such a dramatic look with makeup, i would suggest wearing a nude lip. You want your focus to be on either your eyes or your lips, not both.

-Don't have an eyeliner on hand, or just not the color you need, then dip your eyeliner brush in a little water to damp it and then use an eyeshadow of choice to make your new eyeliner. Also you don't have to damp your brush if you are using a dark shadow, its your choice.

So these are some tips i wanted to share with you beauties! Enjoy. Don't forget to check me out on YouTube HERE and subscribe =-)

Half Wigs Care

Hey Beauties, so i got requested to share some of my advice on how i maintain my half wigs so here it goes...lol
I have been wearing half wigs for almost 2 years since i started my hair journey. This is my main protective style, meaning i wear them to protect my own hair so i stay away from heat and damage, while i wear my hair under the wig, i always use a wig cap. I keep my hair moisturize and sealed as well, this is a must. But i love wigs so much, i really dont even think i would ever stop wearing them, i thought once i hit my goal, well 1 of my goals, of SL, i would stop..DIDNT..then APL, DIDNT, lol..now im on my way to BSL...and i think i MIGHT stop then...maybe...lol we will see. I just love the fact that i can change my style whenever i feel like it...
1. What do i look for when i buy my half wigs?
I look for how natural the hair is, some wigs are to shiny which is an obvious sign its a wig. I don't want it dull either, i like it to match my hair texture, which is number 4 and relaxed. I also stick with brands I'm familiar with, i have tried alot of different brands and the Main one i stick with is Sensationnel, this hair is very natural looking, not shiny, doesn't shed alot and it holds up forever with care. I have tried Outre, this brand is okay but it sheds alot and the hair only last for a couple weeks. Freetress is also an okay brand, it last longer than outre but it doesn't compare to sensationnel. Sensationnel is a wonderful brand if you're looking to getting your moneys worth.
2. Where do i store them?
I store them in its original bag after use, when I'm done wearing it for the day ill brush it out and carefully put it back in the bag. Now there are better ways to store them like on a wig head, but i have so many, it will take up a whole closet lol. So i store them in its bag and put them in a container in my bathroom closet. Make sure to always brush it or shake it out before storing them.
3. How do you care for your wigs?
In order to make you wigs last, don't use hair products on it. They have special wig products to use, but i don't use them. I keep my wigs very clean, when i wash them i place them in luke warm water with a little shampoo and swish it around then run some clean water on it to rinse it, never rub the hair because you can cause matting and damage it. Let it air dry, never blow dry it. By keeping your wigs clean and tangle free, you can see your unit lasting a long time. If not, it will only last a couple weeks.
4. Where do i order my wigs from?
I order them from Clairhair.com, they have the best deals and the shipping is very low. They have a wide range to choose from and i trust this site. I dont really get them from the beauty supply store because the are to expensive, online is way cheaper. Click HERE to go to clairhair.
I looooove my half wigs, its an accessory, like earrings or a bracelet. Remember Beauties, you make the hair, don't let the hair make you =-)
5. How to wear a Half Wig?
The key is to blend it with your own hair to make it look natural as possible, so if the wig hair is straight, make sure your hair is straight. If its curly then curl your hair with rollers or pin curl it, to blend. Sometimes you can get away without even curling your hair, most of the time i wet my hair and apply mouse and brush it over the wig and it blends well, this is during new growth time lol.
6. Sleep with your wigs?
I don't suggest you do this, you can mess up your wigs like this. Take it off at nite and put it in your bag or on a wig head. Make sure to always care for your own hair at night after you take the wig off, sometimes the wig cap can cause your hair to get dry so make sure to apply your favorite moisturizer and seal.
*Enjoy your Wigs Beauites*

Heated Eyelash Curler Review

Hey Beauties!!! So i have a review for you all on this amazzzzzing heated eyelash curler from Sephora, $17.00, now i know that seems pricey for an eyelash curler, i mean you can just get a regular eyelash curler under $5.00 but the price is nothing after realizing the amazing benefits of this heated curler. I LOVVVVE IT!

You use it just like it was a curling iron for your hair, hold it for 5-10 seconds repeat until you reach your desire look, finish off with some mascara...and enjoy your beautiful lashes, no need for false lashes when your lashes could look amazing like this. Check out the pictures ... and the curler is so cute too.
