Simple 10 Minute Everyday Makeup Routine

After many months (possibly years to be honest with you) I have mastered my simple, everyday makeup routine.

As women, it can be pretty easy to get caught up in comparisons. We often define ourselves and our beauty based on the appearance and beauty of others we see. We, as women of color, are sick of people attempting to standardize what beauty is. We are tired of beauty being one size fits. Beauty does not come in a package with one ingredient. It is an immersion and blend of not only what’s on the outside, but what’s also on the inside. We won’t stand for women continuing to…

Why You Need a Skincare Regimen

I’ll have to be honest, for a very long time I didn’t have a skincare regimen. I didn’t break out a lot so I thought it didn’t matter how I washed my face or what I used. I never had any major issues with my skin unless I was stressing over something then I would get stress bumps in my break out areas. Even though I rarely encountered breakouts, I still found it beneficial to have a skincare regimen to maintain the condition of my skin. It’s important to begin…

Back to the Basics: What I Wish I Knew Before I Went Natural

Three of My Favorite Loc Styles

Would you believe me if I told you that I style my hair more now that it is loc’d than I did when I was a free natural? I had no idea how to manage my natural hair before locs because I am convinced my texture does not fit into any of the categories. My hair texture looks coarse, feels super soft and comes with a lot of frizz. This was one of the reasons why I decided to loc my hair because I knew that I would be able…

Being Natural in the (White) Workplace

No, you can’t touch my hair. Being Natural is hard enough. With the copious amounts of products in the market and the struggle to perfect a twist out, bantu knot and perm rod set like your favorite YouTuber, life is not easy for naturals! The task of maintaining the white standard of professionalism doesn’t make being natural any easier. Perhaps it’s time for others to learn to accept our hair. African American professional women have long hid under weaves and perms in order to get in formation with their white…
