Cardi B Gets Her Very Own Tom Ford Lipstick Shade

Cardi B winning streak continues

There’s famous, then there’s lipstick-named-after-you famous, and Cardi B is official latter now.

Amidst a packed (and insane) New York Fashion Week, her latest buzzy moment comes by way of Tom Ford Beauty, which just revealed a lipstick shade inspired by the rapper herself.

The beauty brand unveiled the latest Lips & Boys collection backstage at its Spring/Summer 2019 show (where Cardi sat front row). As usual, the lipsticks are named after people—and Tom Ford Beauty announced a cobalt blue shade named “Cardi” on Instagram. It’s fittingly a shade made for risk-takers and bold beauty lovers.

Last year, the Girls lipstick launches paid homage to friends and famous fans of Ford like Carine [Roitfeld], Naomi [Campbell], Dakota [Johnson], Julianne [Moore]. No word just yet on all the new lipsticks coming our way, but the assortment of shades shown include reds, corals, pinks, browns, and “nudes.”

dynamic_resize-610x407

ELLE’s September issue, the highly anticipated annual bible of beauty and fashion, features black models in a tribute to black hair.

The “Natural Anthem” beauty shoot showcases six women of color rocking a collection of natural styles including afro puffs, sculpted baby hair and braids. The six models hail from Kenya, Burundi, and Canada. One of them was even discovered at a Beyonce concert in Toronto. In the article the models discuss what it was like being a part of the shoot, favorite hair care products, their day-to-day makeup routines, the relationships they have with their hair and their own treasured beauty icons.

The magazine’s beauty director, Vanessa Craft posted the following to her Instagram account:

“I’ve never been in a photo shoot where it’s all black people. Usually there is one black person and seven Caucasian women. We all come from different backgrounds and we can share stories together. And I kind of feel at peace because at other shoots, nobody would talk to each other,” Aliisa says.

“My sister is a hairdresser. I started with braids. My mom wouldn’t let me wear a weave because she said it would be too grown-up for me. Grade 5 graduation was the only time I could wear one; it was a clip-on ponytail. In Grade 8, I got to wear a long weave. I loved it! I would get it sewn in. But I would have to straighten it and comb it out, or brush it out. In high school, I started wearing all natural. [Wearing a weave] is too much time. You have to maintain it,” she added.

Major props to ELLE Canada for showing love to these gorgeous hairstyles and the black women who wear them better than anyone else ever could. Remember who STARTED this ish lol

The September issue is available on newsstands now.

Learn How To Highlight & Contour from these 3 YouTube Tutorials

I think it’s safe to say that a general consensus among the ladies that love to play in they face, is that we all need to dead ridiculous makeup trends for the new year (all things Kylie). Some actually hate the whole highlight and contour but me personally i love it…..i mean who wouldn’t want a slimmer looking face.

I love a good highlight and contour. Keyword: good. The main reason for using the highlight and contour method is to emphasize your favorite features. The art of using this method to sculpt, refine, and slim your face is like magic.

However, many of us have abused its power of bringing out our beauty. And when a highlight and contour goes wrong, it’s really horrible . Yes, you know exactly what I’m talking about: harsh, unblended dark lines, too light highlight that looks ashy. Basically, the greatness of this makeup method can quickly take a stage left as a fail.

For the New Year, i want to equip you with the tools of having your highlight and contour method down to a science, so you won’t fall victim to this sometimes deplorable makeup trend.

Im not a make up pro , so below are the ladies that help me out so much. Im still learning but these 3 ladies have helped me so much , i feel much better at my contour and highlight because off these beat tutorials . Take a look ✌✌✌

Holy GRAIL : Daily Make Up Favorites

Omg I LOVE this product! Every lady and some gents can relate to those words. There’s nothing like finding that HOLY GRAIL item after using alot of items that you just don’t like or your skin doesn’t like. I don’t use much make up so for me have a favorite is HUGE.

I LIVE for BBC Cream and tinted moisturizers . I use this religiously its the best thing so far for me. Plus I love it cause it doesn’t make you have that caked on look , its very natural looking. Thats why my 1st daily Holy Grail item is

Beauty on a Budget

Im BACK …..YAYYY!
So this is my first time giving you glowers a dupes post. So I decided that this post will be dedicated to all my favorite MAC dupes! For those of you who don’t know, MAC is a brand of professional-quality cosmetics known for its insanely huge selection of colors. Unfortunately, with all that awesomeness comes some pretty high prices as well. Although there are some MAC products that cannot be duplicated and are worth the splurge, I’ve found tons of great drugstore alternatives to others!

As always, please keep in mind that prices and availability are subject to change depending on when and where you buy. It’s also important to remember than the pictures you’ll see below are not a completely accurate representation of the colors of these products. So if you see two items that do not look like a match here at all, I promise they do in real life!

With that all out of the way, let’s go ahead and jump into everything!

MACdarksidelipstickdupe-1

This shade of lipstick is definitely my go to lippie for everyday wear, it’s completely stunning! If you’re looking for a dark lipstick perfect for all year round , there is nothing better to me than Black Cherry…or Dark Side if you’d like to splurge a little more.

The Original: MAC Lipstick in Dark Side- $15
Drugstore Dupe: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry- $ 8

When you speak of Mac Heroine it eckos the room. I recently purchased this amazing color that I have been eyeing for sometime now . A Great and accurate dupe I have for yall  is Miss Violet ( left) and MAC Heroine ( the color to the right). Same shade, different textures.  is a Fall Limited Edition and might be hard to find. Sounds like Miss Violet Intrigue and Heroine have something in common besides color, you can’t find neither, no where (Heroine stays sold out).

The Original : MAC Heroine $16
Drugstore Dupe : Miss Violet Intrigue

When wearing a full face makeup it is important to use a setting spray to help set and hold makeup in place. The setting spray helps to improve makeup wearability and prevent color from running and fading.

A very popular setting spray is one from MAC called Fix plus. It’s an aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi.

M6GX

Elf cosmetics offers a more affordable setting spray called Makeup Mist & Set. This invigorating mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients: Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C, & E.

The Original : MAC Fix Plus $21
Dupe : Elf Makeup Mist & Set $3

When trying them out I noticed that both held up equally and my makeup held in place all night.

The whole  beauty dupe culture is one of those moments that you need a sharp eye, keen sense of BS and tight budget. It’s so easy to get caught up thinking you are saving money by buying a duplicate of a high product, when actuality, its not even a close color, texture and doesn’t work nothing like the real thing. I love dupes but here is some advice, USE GOOGLE. Seriously, do the research and find bloggers, vloggers, sites that have swatches or reviews on the real product and duped one if you are UNSURE of a supposed dupe.

Thanks for taking the time to GLOW,
