Okay this is Kinky rhonnie’s fault, yes its all her fault 🙂 So after my last post she gave me the heads up about forever 21 how they had nice cheap hair accessories, so me I promotly went over to their canadian website.

They have a ton of stuff that is really nice and cheap, next paycheck man, next paycheck. Im just glad that its not a sale so i can still get those prices.

So now that I have my hair out, (well its in twists) I’m really feeling hair accessories, unfortunately I dont have any,nope not a one. 🙂 Sad yes i know but its true. right now I really want one of those flower hair clips that are all the rage.


I love this one. I think I may try and make my own.

Still going with the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. This is what she suggests for Black skin specifically, she address Asian, Latin, Middle Eastern and Multiethnic as well but Im just going to retype the info black skin.


  • Black Skin tends to be darker  across the forehead and perimeter of the face, and lighter on the middle part of the face including the cheeks
  • The trick when applying foundation is to create a seamless look between the light/golden and dark/warmer parts of the face.
  • Some women like enhancing the golden tones in their skin and other women like playing up the warmer tones in their skin.
  • If you want to go golden choose a tinted moisturizer or sheer foundation that matches the skin on the centre of your face
  • Apply the tinted moisturizer/sheer foundation just on this area, then use a coppery bronzer on the other parts of the face to diffuse the transition between the lighter and darker areas.
  • If you want to go warm, choose a tinted moisturizer or sheer foundation in a shade that falls between the lighter and darker parts of the face.
  • Applying a dark shade of foundation all over the face will look unnatural so the idea is to tone down the difference between the light and dark areas.
  • Look for a yellow based foundation that has a bit of orange, red ,or blue to it, depending on how deep the colour of your skin is.
  • Lighter black skin looks most natural with yellow-based foundation that has a touch of golden orange.
  • Darker skin looks best with yellow-based foundation that has warm cinnamon tones.
  • If the foundation looks gray or ashy on the skin, its not the right shade
