A night in the 60’s with the Supremes and Diana Ross

So I did some makeup for my friend Leah who is a performer with New England’s Foxx Dream Girls and she needed a replica of the 60’s makeup Diana Ross wore in the supremes below. She didn’t want eye lashes so i couldn’t quite finish the look but i made the wing eyed look with black eyeliner and adding gold and white eyeshadow to the middle of here eyelids and on the thin layer of her under eye. Below are images of the nights look.

Durban Twists and Dramatic Eye makeup

Durban Twists are normally crocheted into ones head but I decided to braid it individually and leave it half way to create the illusion of crocheted  hair.

EYE MAKEUP

The Dramatic Eye look Winged black liner in the crease of eyelid add black and brown shadow and blend into the crease. Add foundation or primer on Eyelids add white texture shadow onto the eyelids blend until smooth. Create winged eye with black eyeliner and add the white shadow or liner to shape the winged liner making it thiner and narrower. Add white eyeliner to under eye. I didn’t put the black eyeliner on the under eye as shown in this picture i felt it would drown my eyes. Shape eyebrows and add white shadow under the brow highlighting.

MISS BLACK AMERICA COED PAGEANT 2014

I just finished competing at the Miss Black America Coed Pageant last weekend November 28 – the 29th and it was a wonderful experience that i had. I have not participated in any pageant for the past 2 years focusing on Academics. I made Top 5 and finished out with 4th runner up though I didn’t win the crown I am very proud of myself for doing what I did and also taking a risk in the glamorous pageant world with competing with my natural curly fro.

Before this fabulous photo above I took out my weave and braids and my hair is still going strong and long. I sectioned it into 6 sections and tied a rubber band around and carefully blow dried each section and straightened my hair revealing the length of my hair 2 years of growth.

Promoting with my Natural Hair for the Baltimore Charm LFL Football Team

This is the first time I have actually been brave enough to walk out with my hair like this besides being in school or around friends that know me. But it is the greatest feeling. Despite the fact that i continue to purchase and wear weaves since i am doing tons of modeling events that require for the long length of hair. I have not been as comfortable to walk out like this; so rocking my natural hair out is a huge accomplishment for me.

Check more pictures out!!

August 2012

I came home one day from school in Boston. And felt it was time for change and i went to the salon and snipped my hair down Hally Berry Style. Not bad for a short style on a long face, I let me hair grow out I couldn’t really take care of  my actual short hair while in school it would be a large amount of work for me.

    • Hi LilyU Thanks so much for the comment as far as the hair regime I haven’t done much to my hair due to the fact I absolutely hate touching or messing with my real hair out.

      It has grown so successfully because I braid my hair and leave in protective styles such as a full closed weave.

      So yes I still spend the money on weaves but that is also because I model and take photos often. If you are too afraid of the time commitment for natural hair; protective styles are the best.

      When you do take it out of the braids just leave for 5 days at most and make sure to deep condition your hair shampoo and moisturize with oil products.
      Even olive oil is great for the hair.

      I also would like to connect on your website I checked out Styltix.com and it is great what is the best contact? We can collaborate on something.
