The Best Face Oils for Your Skin

We’ve all been told at some point in our lives that we should keep oil far away from our skin–whether it had been a beauty counter rep telling you, your doctor or your mama! It didn’t matter if it was oil splattering up from fried chicken pan, the natural oils we find in our skin, or organic oils. To us women, all kinds were synonymous with “no bueno.” Because oil = breakouts, right?

 

Not necessarily.

Ready for Spring with Remington Facial Cleansing Brush

Hey beauties,

 

Can you believe it’s March already? In-sane. The weather has already begun behaving like spring but I can’t wait for the season to especially come. I’m preparing myself by switching out my bulky winter wardrobe for my spring wardrobe, cleaning every inch of my house and tending to every inch of my skin. Yes, I said skin. Spring cleaning should apply to our skin, too!

The Most Important Reasons Why You Should Love Yourself

Self-care has been one of the most blatant topics of conversation in our society lately.  It’s all about making sure your mental health is given serious attention, indulging in the things that make you happy, and appreciating who you are…especially in the state of this crazy country of ours.

 

Inevitably, when one considers self-care, self-love isn’t too far off. Because why take care of yourself if you don’t love yourself? Why work out, take bubble baths, or have that one cheat meal if you don’t love yourself?

#GIRLBOSS, Call the Shots with Maybelline New York

My favorite part of my makeup routine is tending to my eyes. I play on my almond shape with black eyeliner to create the perfect cat eye (when God permits haha). I add neutrals and golds shadow to pronounce my dark brown hue. And I take my time to accentuate my lashes with mascara because that’s my favorite part! Even on days I barely have anything on, mascara remains my go-to in order to come alive.

Lessons My Mom Taught Me on Beauty & Dignity

My mother taught me to represent myself well at all times. Hair? Done. Face? Beat. Clothes? Ironed. Shoulders? Back.  Beauty tips came with the package of growing into my womanhood.

 

And as a girly girl, I loved it. Even the annoying parts.

 

If she saw me slouching, she’d just look over at me and I’d just know to stand upright. We laugh about it all the time because she still does it ’til this day!

 

When we need new foundation, we hit up Sephora together. If I’m pondering a new hairstyle, I scrounge the internet to find her the perfect photo. We send each other texts asking each other for advice on great deals we’ll find at the mall. (I’m a graduating senior from college and I text my mother multiple times in the day! And don’t get me started on our phone calls.)

 

While my mom taught me all the girl and surface-y stuff, the real foundation of our relationship are the heart things. She has always been reminding me of my beauty and worth every single day, showed me how to carry myself with respect and dignity, brings up my past accomplishments and then goes even further to encourage me about the promise of my future.
