Need You Support

One reason I got into makeup is to inspire, especially inspire black women. I still get customers/clients that say “I can’t wear certain shades because of my skintone.” Thought I show them they can and they start beaming. That moment of excited is why I love what I do and why I want to be successful in the beauty industry.

Makeup is not just a hobby for me, this is my passion, craft and how I make money. I don’t ask ya’ll to support my instagram just because. I ask because without support I can get more opportunities as fast. Yes, I have been noticed by shea moisture, stila and bh cosmetics but never featured.

Sadly your follower count does play a factor. I feel like being black and plus size plays a factor too. So I’m always thankful for the love and support I do get. I appreciate all of you that reblog my looks or ask my questions.

So if you can please follow my Instagram: the_queen_bambee. It would help a lot.

This is my new zine, and I’m using it to make peace with my voice, the waves, and the process. I want to give myself the space and tools to carry out my projects. And this is it; and the waves and the feels are all part of it.

Those forehead kisses you like to hold out on
Are the reasons why I keep coming back to love you.

I imagine that if I love harder
You’d bother to
Think of me on occasion
Isn’t that how karma works?
What goes around comes around?

And who trips around town comes back home, eventually.

My heart,
Are the garments you’ve out grown,
Tossed out the window Have been spread all over the
Pavement

Karma,

I’ve come pretty close to falling in love with your name.

The bend in my bind straightens every time I hear your name.

You demand respect.
And I respect that.

A shout out, note of admiration, and congrats to these girls who are taking over the world, but also friends who have inspired me so much. Apryl and Azha run a wonderful zine called Shade Magazine which you should most definitely check out. Name Inspired by the film Paris is burning, It’s a creative platform that’s all about offering representation for people of color and others who are often left out of the creative scene. I love and cherish these two so much and am so excited for them to sell their first printed zine, Sassy, this weekend in Brooklyn at the Girl Artist Takeover show!!!

Spread this positive body of work like wild fire and send my friends all the best of vibes.
