Easy & Affordable Everyday Makeup for Black Women with Oily Skin

I have very oily skin. Because of that I get lots of blackheads and breakouts which leads to dark marks. For my everyday makeup, I like looks that cover up those dark marks, keeps me matte, and looks as natural as possible. Don’t get me wrong, I love an over the top makeup look as much as the next girl, but for everyday, I try to keep it simple.

I also try to keep it affordable. 99.9% of the makeup I own is from the drugstore. I want makeup that works, but I’m not trying to break the bank to get it. If any of this sounds like you too, keep reading for my tips, tricks, and products that I turn to on a daily basis. (more…)

Two Products You’ll Love! Quick & Easy Ombre Lips for Women of Color

Right now, I’m loving the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Shine in Berry Couture with the Nicka K Auto Lip Liner in Indigo (AA12). They not only create the perfect ombre lip, but they leave the lips feeling moisturized and soft. I’m a sucker for a matte lip, but in the winter months when my skin and lips are already dry, it’s nice to keep them soft with a creamy lipstick.wp-1452881724266.jpg

This combo is perfect for women of color. I love the way that purples look against my skin and other women with a darker complexion. The deeper lip liner mixed with the lighter lipsticks gives the lips great dimension and is very flattering.

In addition, these lip products are very affordable. At just $8.39 for the lipstick and $3.70 for the lip liner if you buy them online, they’re a cute look without breaking the budget. I’ve linked the cheapest prices I could find to these product above.

Hope you love this look as much as I do. If you purchase or recreate this look, be sure to use the hashtag #PassionMeThis so that I can see, like, and share! (more…)
