Diversity in Cosmetic Ads


If you have been following my blog, then by now, you should know that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands. After searching online for the perfect white nail polish, I remembered that the brand sold one that I still needed to try, so I typed in the link to their site. I noticed immediately that the model wearing one of the latest lip tar colors was a woman of color.

For some people, particularly those who have been exposed to more cultures, the ad is no big deal. But for many women of color, most beauty ads do not feature women (or men) who share the same ethnic background. For the longest time, unless the beauty brand was Fashion Fair, people of color were never featured as models. OCC has taken a step in the right direction. It would be nice to see other cosmetic brands follow suit. Time will tell.

Until next time,

Helping Hands (Product)


I “speak” with my hands and I create with them too. Sadly, my dry hands do not always look their best when they are on display, and that’s where    Lush Helping Hands Hand Lotion comes in to save my hands from looking like they’ve been intimate with flour! This creamy lotion is vegetarian, contains chamomile water, almond oil, shea butter, and other essential oils that are perfect for my thirsty skin.  A little goes a long way and lately, my skin has been thanking me. Like many people, I have eczema, so I have to be really careful about the products I introduce to my skin. I’m happy to say that this product works well for me and will stay in rotation (shoutout to my amazing hubby who bought me a trove of Lush products recently)! As the saying goes, “We all need a helping hand.”  

Until next time,

Prom Season is Here!


I love seeing the teens get dressed to the nines for their proms, as it is truly a rite of passage in our culture. I don’t book many prom appointments but when I do, I really enjoy making the young ladies look radiant and fresh.  It’s even more rewarding when I reveal the final look to them and they are so happy with the results. Check out the pictures of two beautiful and intelligent young ladies who hired me to be their makeup artist for their senior proms!

Until next time,
