How to wash your hair.

I’ve been doing it wrong apparently.

  1. Use lukewarm water. Not hot.
  2. Don’t use more than a coin-sized shampoo dollop.
  3. Only shampoo the roots - it dries out the ends.
  4. Only condition the ends - it makes the roots oily.
  5. Double shampoo, single conditioner.
  6. Comb in the shower before rinsing out the conditioner.
  7. Pat dry with a towel - rubbing breaks it.
  8. Use coconut oil or argan oil on the ends whilst damp to avoid splits.
  9. Let it air dry whenever possible - artificial heat makes it brittle.

18 Annoying AF Beauty Problems Black Girls Have

As a minority, it can be hard to overcome certain “standards of beauty” that are set by the majority. NOT COOL. You can’t ever be convinced that who you are is anything less than beautiful. It’s hard to not feel that way, though, especially when so many beauty products seem tailored to white people. That makes finding the perfect one pretty damn difficult sometimes.

How to Maintain Your Brow Shape

Whilst brows should be thick, there is no such thing as a universally flattering shape. This is merely a guide on how to reshape your brows, I highly recommend that everyone visit a brow specialist at least once in their life, you can keep them in shape yourself. A good brow stylist should be able to figure out your ideal shape just by looking at you. Make sure you do your research and ask a lot of questions before choosing a brow stylist.

Whether you choose to wax, tweeze or thread is entirely up to you. Waxing and threading are best for removing large amounts of hair where as in tweezing is best for precision and removing small amounts of hair.

How to Choose a Good Brush

TEST: Start off by testing the brush on the back of your hand on the inside of your wrist. If the bristles feel scratchy, stiff, itchy or annoying when you brush it on your skin, ditch it. If the brush doesn’t feel nice on your hands it definitely isn’t going to feel nice on your face. 

BRISTLES: When you first test a new brush try gently pulling at the bristles, there is no need to be aggressive. A few bristles may come out (which is completely normal for new brushes) but if you find the brush sheds more than a few times it’s not very well made.

PRESSURE: You need to be able to apply pressure to a brush in order to get the best results with your makeup, if you can’t the brush will be useless in makeup application. Try pressing the brush on the back of your hand or drawing imaginary lines, the bristles should have some flexibility to help with blending, but they should not “fan” out or move a great deal.

BALANCE. This is one of my favourite tricks for testing out the quality of a brush. Hold the brush on the back of your hand with the bristles facing down and lightly bounce the brush, this test the strength of the bristles. It is perfectly normal for the bristles to have a slight bend, but if they splay or flatten out they will not be any good for applying makeup.

FERRULE:  The ferrule is a key factor in makeup brushes and needs to be good quality.When testing out a brush try applying large amounts of pressure to the ferrule with your index finger. If the ferrule melts, moves, dents, changes shape or looks any different after you’ve applied pressure, give it a miss as it is likely the brush will fall apart. Try and opt for brushes which have “dents” in the ferrule as these are often stronger. 

MAKE: The brush head (the tip, bristles and ferrule) should not be loose, spin easily or wobble on the handle if they do; it means the brush is poorly made.

NATURAL VS SYNTHETIC:  Natural bristles vs synthetic bristles have been in debate for a very long time, but in the end it all comes down to personal preference. Natural/Animal hair bristles contain a “cuticle” around them which helps them grip onto powder products more effectively and are fantastic for blending. Synthetic bristles on the other hand are cruelty free and great for liquid and cream products.

Seven Tips to make your Makeup Better


1.  Take Care of your Skin

Makeup only looks so good on top of rough, red, irritated skin… so soften and heal your skin every day!  Proper cleansing and moisturizing are key for a flawless face.  Apply moisturizer and eye cream immediately before makeup application for the best results!  -Skincare Tags- 

2. Groom your Brows

Eyebrows are the frames to your eyes - for an instant eye lift and to make your face look more polished, trim excess hair and fill wherever needed!  To find the perfect brow shape for your face, use a pencil or brush against your nose.  Vertically against the ball of your nose for the proper place to begin your brow, against your nostril through the pupil for the arch, and along the outer corner for the tail end.  - Eyebrow Tags -

3.  Line Your Lips

Kardashian-lips are only achieved with an impeccable lip line!  You can cheat fuller lips easily with the right lip lining techniques.  Pick a shade just slightly darker than your natural lips, and create your ideal shape before you put your lipstick on.  Even without lip color, a nude lip liner will make your lips look like you have done injections… even when you haven’t!  - Lip Liner Tags - 

4.  Blend your Shadow

There are only two rules to applying makeup, and those are 1) Layer   and 2) Blend   Blend that eyeshadow as if your life depends upon it!  Harsh lines and separation between colors signifies an amateur, and we all know you don’t want to look like an amateur.  Get a nice fluffy blending brush and soften that crease, soften that under eye, soften that transition… soften everything!  The better your blur, the more insta-famous you’ll look!  - Eyeshadow Tags - 

5.  Buff your Complexion

Flawless foundation is one of the most impotent factors to achieving a perfect makeup look.  How to we achieve a flawless complexion?  The tools you use have the biggest impact.  A large, dense buffing brush or a high quality makeup sponge are best for this step.  Once you’ve applied your foundation and concealer, go in with a great tool and buff away any streak, line, or layer you’ve created.  You’ll maintain the perfect coverage while creating a skin-like finish.  - Foundation Tags - 

6.  Set Everything

Nothing ruins a makeup look as quick as creasing does!  To prevent oily lines and smudges on your face, set your entire look from beginning to end.  Pick translucent powder for your undereye concealer and around your nostrils, and a setting spray for the rest of your skin.  Setting not only prevents extra moisture and migraine of makeup, but helps it to look more like skin.  - Setting Powder Tags -

7.  Take your Time

Rushing through makeup application will never get you a perfect result.  Take the extra ten minutes and blend, layer, and laquer your makeup to perfection.  A really beautiful look usually takes more than five minutes, so don’t get discouraged if you’re trying to rush and the end result isn’t what you want.  We all have a makeup artist inside us just waiting to come out!
