Red Lipstick & Champagne Dreams: SOFT & SIMPLE HOLIDAY MAKEUP FOR WOMEN OF COLOR

SOFT & SIMPLE HOLIDAY MAKEUP FOR WOMEN OF COLOR


Notice anything different? I let my fro out to breath! Yay to feeling the wind in my scalp (kind of). This girl today said to me "why did you take out the blonde hair?" And in my head I said "cause who gon check me boo?" (that's basically my answer to everything these days) But the real reason is that I just missed my hair. I have very thick natural hair and it can be a lot of work to prep it for the next day, so if I just keep it braided and moisturized  under something then I don't have to worry about it.
This seems to be paying off because my hair has gained a lot of length, though I know I need a trim really bad. I want to get it straightened (professionally) so I can see what is really going on with it.





I thought this would be the perfect look for any party. It's simple but it makes the eyes stand out. You could go with a bold lip or keep it nude like I did.





For today's makeup I used a gold pigment on my lid and used a number of brown shades on my crease to create a soft smokey eye. You can use basically anything you'd like. Usually when I do softer looks like this I tend to go in on the winged liner and I add some fun lashes to complement my eyes.
