This product junkie has been made very, very happy! I am sooooo excited!
Vivrant Beauty is a brand new boutique that opened about 3 weeks ago. Located on 121st and St. Nicholas, Vivrant curates skincare, haircare and cosmetic products that cater to all skintones and hair textures.
This upscale, gorgeous beauty oasis is bright but calming and peaceful and is nothing like your typical beauty supply store. Vivrant’s owner Desiree Verdejo has carefully selected brands that are black owned or carries an extensive colour range. Many of these brands or sold online or in a limited number of brick-and-mortar stores. Some of them I had never heard of.
I have been loving this African headwrap! I bought it recently from a lovely Haitian woman Paola and she is the owner of the company Fanm Djanm. My particular piece is 100% Dutch wax fabric from Tanzania. The edges are finished and it’s a large rectangular piece. Honestly, I don’t remember how I tied it. And I love that it is so bright and colourful and I can keep my makeup at a minimum. Here I had a little black liner on my lower lashline. Mascara top and bottom lashes, a little matte chocolate brown eye shadow in the crease. On the skin, only facial oil. All about that glowy, summer skin!
just some facial oil, minimal eye makeup! Glowy skin!
By the way, Paola will be at the Sugar Hill Market in Harlem this Sunday, August 17. This market is held once a month, in various locations around Harlem and it features a host of talented artisans showing their handmade creations. There’s food, clothing, crockery. So check out their website for more information, Sugar Hill Market.
What do you think? I need to find different ways to tie it. Any suggestions?
