Everyday Fall Makeup Look

Neutral eyes and Berry lips have become my signature fall look. It's an easy and fun look that's great for so many occasions, work, hanging out with friends, and spending time with family.

One of my favorite neutral palettes is Urban Decay's original Naked palette. The warm neutral tones are perfect for fall. I paired it with purple NYX lipstick and Revlon's super lustrous lipgloss.

To see how I get this everyday glam look watch the video below!

Organizing my hair products

I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a hair product junkie. Ok maybe more than a bit. Add to that my CurlKit subscription, which sends me natural hair samples every month and I've accumulated a nice collection of hair products. So I had to find a way to store them so that they were easily accessible and organized. I purchased my "hair box" at a local box box store called Big Lots, but you can also find them at Target.

It sit under my bathroom sink so it's easy to reach and I can see all my products at a glance. The problem is that I tend to toss things into my box and so it gets pretty messy. I was going to re-organize it and decided to share that with you. Check it out in the video below!

Do you use any of these products? Which are your favorites?

Twist Out Tip! How to get definition at the root

Twist outs are one of the most popular natural hair styles. It was the first natural hairstyle I learned and mastered and still love to wear.
I was asked the following question on my Facebook page:

"How do you keep your roots from looking puffy? My twistouts always look messy because of this." -Aaliyah

My roots were a primary concern when I began doing my twist outs, for the same reason that Aaliyah mentioned, I didn't like the puffy natural texture at the root not matching the defined twistout pattern. In this video I show you how I get a consistent twistout pattern without puffy roots!

Do you have any natural hair styling questions?

Hair Regimen: Detangling + Review

The detangling process is a very important part of my hair regimen. I remove naturally shed hairs and untangle knots prior to washing my hair, this keeps my hair from further tangling and avoids breakage!
When choosing a product to use for detangling you want to select a product that is very slippery and glides through your hair helping to breakdown knots and separate your strands. There are many detangling products available, these are three that I've tried and recommend.

Have you tried any of these detanglers?
