So, I know I'm sort of late, but technically, with the way the weather's been acting, it still feels a little like summer, so I'm going for it anyway! If you know me at all, you know the one thing that rarely stays constant is my hair-do. Here's one that I kept for quite a few months and loved! Discovered it by accident.....and then I kept it for the whole summer!
So, I'm in MD for Independence (US) weekend, and I hate the way my hair looked during the day! Like, it was just not working for me. So I run back to my room and have like 30 mins to spare - slew on some Ms Jessie's Baby buttercreme, and made huge twists in my hair (didn't have much time, lol) and got dressed for the night! After untwisting, my plan was to pull everything back into poof......but then I looked in the mirror and figured - eh, lets leave it like this and see what happens. And it turns out I loved it! The look stayed all night, and got a few reviews too ;). I especially got rave reviews whenever wearing my ankara or wudin earrings with it which gave an even more afrocentric look, which I'm all about!
The other half of this, the bright pink or melon lipsticks were discovered by accident as well. So I'm in Sephora (one of my guilty pleasures) and ask the associate to show me a color that works with bold eyeshadow.......ie a soft color .....and this lady pulls out the brightest pink I've ever seen! Now, I'm not sure why she did this because bright eyes mixed with bright lips is a bit much.....but it got my wheels spinning and I ended up buying it (tricked again! LOL). And now I love it! I'm mostly onto new colors for the fall, though this may come up from time to time, but I'd recommend these too! Its Fuscia Flash and Melondrama from the "Be Legendary" lipstick line by Smashbox.
