THIS was a collaborative effort! And it’s always fun to combine efforts with other ladies (and sometimes gents) on YouTube because they bring things to the table that perhaps you may not have thought of on your own. And let’s be real, it’s just downright fun supporting one another!

Emmy V aka Emmy8405, a fellow YouTuber, contacted me about doing a ‘Queen Collaboration’ Series, where women of color, wherever they represent, creates a makeup look representing how it feels to be a QUEEN while representing their country

Emmy is representing Haiti

The best part about being a makeup artist and doing what I do on YouTube isn’t cool articles like these, but just being liked period. I always said as long as I’ve got one happy subscriber I’ll keep doing what I’m doing :)

 

Some other great picks are featured as well, including MakeupD0LLStart2FinishMuaColoured BeautifulDestiny Godley and much more.

No Makeup, Makeup Tutorial

 

You get it, right? ‘No makeup makeup’, it’s basically the kind of makeup that barely enhances what’s already there. Makeup without trying too hard. Makeup that could take you, literally, as little as 15 minutes to complete.

This look is everyday wearable, fresh, and also gives the skin the chance to breath WHILE getting SPF protection from the sun!
