Slouchy Sweater with Pencil Skirt/skinny pants

Happy Friday Barbies and Kens!!!! This is an outfit I wore this week. It is very casual yet comfy.

I was not sure if I should wear a skirt or a pants because the weather is very finicky here in LA. I tried both but went for the pants just in case the weather changed suddenly.

My look consisted of a skinny waxed pants from Uniqlo, Target sweater, H&M skirt, Bershka sneaker wedges, Gucci sunnies and LV tote.
Have a great weekend. Thank you for reading and until Monday, stay fab and be creative.
Smooches,

Color Correction for WOC with Dry Skin

Color correcting is a very helpful step in makeup application. This is especially useful if you have dark circles under your eyes and or dark spots left from acne scarring or hyperpigmentation.

What is Color Correction?

It is the process where you use a coral/orange/peach shade of concealer or color correcting product (primer/brightener) to cancel out the dark area.

There are various makeup companies that make color correcting products. I have tried these and they have worked for me:

Yves Saint Laurant Touche Eclat Neutralizer Bisque (Purchase here and here)
BH Cosmetics 6 Color Concealer and Correct Palette Dark (Purchase here)
Mac Studio Concealer and Correct Palette Medium Deep (Purchase here)
LA Girl Pro (Purchase here)

In this post, I will show you how I used the YSL Touche Eclat Neutralizer in Bisque to cancel my under eye circles.

Products I used to complete the look

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation R530 Brown (Purchase here)
Mac Mineralized Skin Finish Deep Dark (Purchase here)
Benefit Hoola Bronzer (Purchase here)
Benefit They're Real Mascara (Purchase here)
Nudestix Lip pencil (Not yet released)
Sleek Makeup Blush Aruba (Purchase here)
NYX Eyeliner and Lipliner Dark Brown & Brown (Purchase here and here)
WetnWild Eyebrow Kit Ash Brown (Purchase here)

How do you color correct? What products do you use?

Boy!!!!! Girl!!! Yuh in Di Mix

Happy Thursday Barbies and Kens!!! This post should have been up since last week. I won't give you a speech as to why I did not post it then. The most important thing is that I am now.
I like to mix male pieces or male inspired pieces to give them a feminine touch. Today, I felt like using that as my inspiration as well as since the beginning of the year I have been in an extremely great mood and feel very inspired.

Working in a relaxed environment I am able to play with pieces more. Here I paired a denim top with some H&M chinos, Zara corduroy blazer and boots and Fendi tote. To add in the feminine touch, I added my Kate Spade bow belt and a double bun.
Thank you for reading. Until tomorrow, stay fab and be creative.
Please show me some support by watching my video and subscribe.
XOXO,
JB
