Anonymous asked: what are some pink drug store lipsticks that go well with dark skin? i'm black and have a hard time finding a pink that will compliment my skin
Here is the deal with pink lipstick for colored girls like us. We NEED a good plum or brown lip liner to balance out lipstick shades to make them appear more natural. It is a must.
Great pink lipsticks for dark glamazons:
- Maybelline Lipstick- Nearly There ( natural pinkish shade, no liner needed)
- Victoria’s Secret Lipstick- Scrumptous ( plum liner a must with this one)
- Wet n’ Wild Matte Lipstick -Pinkerbell (exact dupe for Viva Glam Nicki)
Check the youtube links for more suggestions. I agree with most of the picks.
Please invest in a deep plum and brown lip liner, just about any shade will work with the right liner. My personal favorites are NARS Eyeliner in Mambo and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Rockstar.
Still love the Maybelline XXL mascara. I have to be honest in saying that it’s probably my favorite mascara of all time. I find myself always repurchasing it. Perfect sized brush, primer for my lashes, and gives a nice dramatic look.
In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

I’m not perfect, but I am thankful to you and all the people who support and care for me because you force my growth and evolution. I will stay forever femme, you promise to do the same.
llerret asked: I have so many moment where I feel so ugly because of how different I look and I just can't take a picture or make a video. I hate it. How do you battle this if it ever happens to you?
I have days where the camera seems to have a personal issue with me, but I just move past it. I focus more on the task at hand and less on my looks, sometimes that helps. Many of my videos showcase me in a less than flattering light.
Let me just say that you are gorgeous, seriously, I am not just saying so to make you feel better. You are beautiful and possess a self awareness and insight into life that is very rare. Your complexity is the key to your beauty. If you ever feel less than beautiful remember these things. I love and support you. I won’t allow you to feel bad about yourself, period.
I need you and many people like you to continue to walk through this world allowing your beauty to shine. In your darkest hour we are your guiding light and in my darkest hour I will need you to be mine.
