I recreated it and the featured product is the lipstick! This bright, bold matte orange is by blackUp Cosmetics, a cosmetic line based in Paris, specially made for women colour. Now making its entry into the US with a store in NYC. The shade is RGE34M. I added some bronze cream and pigment shadow on the lid with some falsies!

My hair is in a twistout.

My summer look!

She hails from the twin island Republic of Trinidad & Tobago but currently reside in the beauty/fashion capital of the world, New York City (Harlem to be exact!). She is passionate - well, obsessed - about beauty and in addition to blogging, she is also a corporate beauty professional and a budding web designer/developer. She loves combining her in-depth, practical knowledge with her chemist/scientific training to make your cosmetic choices fun and easy. She likes to take the guesswork out of beauty, separate the hype from what really works, to help you bring out the most beautiful you! She loves colour, and makeup, and she has been natural for years! She also loves great food, culture, sports and laid back vibes!
