Make Up

I love Make-Up and youtube has helped to fuel my addiction and helped me to get back into it.   So here are a few make-up tutorials i like to follow:

Make up Geek – I love her, she makes makeup fun and that i can actually copy the looks she does….

Xsparkage – I love her hair color and the colors that she puts together

Enkore – LOVE HIM gives great tips on how to get good quality brushes and makeup and not break the bank

Petrilude – Does some great looks, not sure if i would copy them all but he has great tips and looks that inspire me to create some of my own

Caskew7– Can identify with her MAC addiction and loves some of the every day looks for women of color.

EmsyJay – love her sense of humor and her love of classical music as well as makeup, great inspired looks

eyeXluvXmakeup– Loves her color choices and her wig collection, and not afraid to take risks with colors on brown skin.

These are just a few of the people i follow on youtube, you can see all of my subscriptions on my page ASweetie06

Hair Today…..

Gone Tomorrow…….

As some of you all know i am a gemini, i love to change up my looks from cutting my hair, to wearing colored contacts the whole nine…. i recently cut my hair even shorter, but as always when i cut my hair i long for long hair.   So i have found that wigs are a great way to change up my look.  One great wig i found is Bali Girl by Freetress, i got mine from Hair Sisters, GREAT WIG…i love it… it is such a sexy wig even my sweetie liked it lol.

I found out about the wig from some of the YouTuber’s i follow and just had to have it.  Now most Divas get it in the blondish color but you know i have to be different, i got in with Red Highlits the 3T350 .  I have gotten a few other wigs but this one is my favorite, the picture does not do it justice.  I will post a few pics of Bali Girl and i will have to do another blog on the rest of my collection…..

It’s Back to the 70’s

I am in a group called Curvy Diamond Divas (CCD), a yahoo group community that has some of the most amazing people in it.  CCD had a 70’s party

So any one who knows me knows i love the 70’s, if i could have gotten some Pucci print fabric but a last i could not.  But i did have some fabric I bought last year from Vogue Fabrics in Chicago (which i miss dearly btw).  So i made a Mini Dress from two patterns, Simplicity Patterns 3539 for the dress and another Simplicity Pattern for the sleeves *i have to find it to post*.  I had a few issues with the bodice but after i worked them out, i think the dress came out pretty good i have some material left over, i might make a little top with it.  So i bought an afro wig from Hair Sisters.com, this thing is huge, i mean massive, i got the hair flower from My Diva’s Closet, the shoes were a steal when Fileen’s Basement was closing :(, i got the wedges for 4.99, black satin Steve Maddens.

Let me know what you think of my 70’s Look.  I made a little video of it also.
