Birds of Paradise Eyes

Threw this look together and the first thing that came to my mind was the ever-so-beautiful birds-of-paradise flower. Aren’t they breathtaking? They just remind me of being on an island somewhere in Tahiti, with a hot naked guy! lol

Reminds me of some of my older more colorful looks I did earlier in my YouTube days, I try to keep most of my looks everyday-wearable but every once in a while things need to get spruced up with color

Carnival or Mardi Gras look? You Decide!

I can’t decide whether or not this makeup look is Caribbean Carnival appropriate, or Mardi Gras themed. Took a poll on my facebook page and the general consesus was between those two looks, so you be the judge!

Not everyone is going to like this look. It’s definitely not everyday wearable, nor something you’d wear out to dinner or on a date. Just thought I’d switch things up a bit and do something editorial-esque and photoshoot worthy. It almost reminds me on an ugly clown lol

Here’s one of my favorite ways to do a dark smokey eye for women of color which is not easy being that they usually come across like we got punched in the eye!
