no wasted makeup round these parts…(FOTN/OOTN)

hey y’all! how’s life? I haven’t been up to much, just working, trying to find my way around Chicago, and visiting a lounge, occasionally 😉

this is also my first outfit post. I’m such a simpleton soooo you won’t see any extragent outfits round here. but here’s the look I wore last night…I got some pretty good feedback on my instagram page (btw my username is: thecorporatebeauty) and decided to share it in a blog post.

I almost didn’t go out. I was just about finished with my makeup and got a text from a friend saying she kinda didn’t wanna go…so I was gonna go by myself, my makeup was done! LOL! but I ended up getting her out and we had a great time!
let me know what you think!

Backstage Beauty Cosmetics

chello y’all!

this weekend I had the pleasure of joining my girl Kima at her cosmetics line launch party/makeup class. she’s such a beautiful woman and is embarking on a new journey and I was so glad to support her. the line includes, eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipglosses, lip pencils, eye pencils, face powders, cream foundations, blushers, aaaand coming soon brow pencils.

she worked as a manager for MAC and decided to do what she loves, doing her own thing. I commend her! do what you love, no matter what! take a step out on faith.

check out her website…she’s just getting started so be sure to check back often. and I’ll also be updating you! Backstage Beauty Cosmetics

anywho…of course I purchased a few things, a lipstick, lipgloss, and blush. you’ll be happy to know that I stepped ALL THE WAY out of my neutral box and into some color 😉

so here’s my small haul, but trust there will be more coming soon. don’t forget to check out her site and check back here for updates. I absolutely love women of color who follow their dreams, start businesses, and do whatever it is that makes them happy. support US 🙂

maybe a FOTD will come soon….
