Lookbook | Fall Makeup Tutorial | #beautyover50

My goal with these tutorials and videos is to highlight makeup and how it enhances the skin specifically for women of color. I like my natural beauty but I also like feeling beautiful and seeing how makeup enhances my looks instead of changing my look totally. The video tutorial below gives you a step by step play of this tranformation!

Lifestyle | How To Create a Background for Videos

I created this fun background to give my videos a little more flare from time to time and it was very easy and simple to do. Working with contact paper is no easy feat, I ended up with several bubbles which I tried to cover with the flowery peel off stickers. Be sure and watch the video below to see the tutorial.

Swatches | Clinique Pop Lacquer | Lip Colour + Primer

 Clinique Pop Lacquer
I'd never thought about these until I saw a review on another blog and I started wondering if I could find colors that suited my complexion.  I headed over to the Clinique counter and started swatching on my arm and found the colors to be very vibrant. My lips are a little pigmented and the inside of my arm is the lightest area that comes closest to my natural lip color so  I can pretty much see how the colors would appear on my lips. These lip lacquers cost $18.50 and come in 10 colors.

Lifestyle | One Month Chemotherapy Update | #chemotherapy #ovariancancer

| #chemotherapy #ovariancancer
Today I wanted to share what I ate on #chemotuesdays with you just to give you an idea of how things are going. For the most part, I haven't gotten sick at all from chemo and I've had 4 rounds so far.  On my actual chemo day, I do a liquid diet until dinnertime. Then for dinner I have soup and salad.  I have to also take a nausea pill to make sure that I keep it down but for the most part, my diet is still strong and normal except for Tuesday's. In any rate, I explained all this in my video below!

 Pin Striped Jumpsuit
I put together three different outfits with this cute jumpsuit that I found from Mystylemode, a trendy online boutique that I discovered. Their prices are very reasonable for the type of fabrics they carry and this trendy little jumpsuit cost $41.00, I ordered mine in a size medium because i'm 5'7"and I weigh 135 in case you're wondering!
