Hey, wassup, hello! If you follow me here or on Instagram, you know about my favorite blow-dry lounge HSI Hair Bar. I had the pleasure of hosting their Product Launch Party a few months ago. The turnout was so great that I am hosting another event, only this time, it’s all about summer BRAIDS! Yep. I’m pretty stoked about it. Let’s talk about summer for a moment. There’s a common
Hello Lovelies! I’m getting back on my glam grind and posting more often. I’m excited to share this summer’s fun-filled agenda kicking off with The HSI Hair Bar! I dropped into their salon a few weeks ago to give them a try and instantly fell in love. First, it’s adorable! The baroque-inspired salon chairs and mirrors were the first thing that caught my attention. Ana Isabel, one of the head stylists, did a
Hello Lovelies! Sorry for the abandonment. It’s been a hectic past couple of months, to say the least. Anyway, I’m back! And with some pretty awesome stuff lined up for SUMMER! We all want that fabulous glow, not just this time of year, but all year round! Beauty For Real joined forces with one of my favorite brands Aerie to bring you, as I like to call it, the ultimate summer survival kit! I got
Hey everyone I’m Shareef, guest blogging today to share some of my photos with you! I have a particular interest in street photography and capturing those spontaneous moments we see everyday. Street photography can be challenging, requiring patience and attention to detail to be able to capture a photo that can tell a story. One thing I should mention though it isn’t all about candid moments of people not aware
Happy Valentine’s Day! I am so glad to be back! It’s been quite a while. So…Valentine’s Day, also known as Single Awareness Day, is mostly associated with the color red. Red roses, red heart lollipops, red nail polish and of course, the classic red lip. I am so excited to share these photos of my BFF Jackie and myself. This is our first ever collaboration and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Hello Lovelies! So excited to finally share these AMAZING photos of my very good friends Kaitlyn & Yoyo. Today they are celebrating their 6 year anniversary! The shoot was inspired by the most fashionable couple to ever grace primetime TV, Chuck & Blair from Gossip Girl. Wishing them the best today and always! Love you guys! XO
Happy Veterans Day! As promised, here’s the last part of our “Fallidays” shoot in Auburn. Subconsciously, we chose a dark red lip and camo jacket just in time for Veterans Day! Our shoot wouldn’t have been complete without this adorable red barn house that’s on campus. Make sure to check below the photos for links to Kristy’s outfit & makeup! I’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all
Happy #SelfieSunday! Today I decided to switch up my selfie with a little bit of sugar skull makeup! I felt inspired being that today is the last day of Dia de Los Muertos, a Mexican holiday celebrated from October 31st to November 2nd. Please excuse the small imperfections, I did this rather quickly and didn’t have much time to edit. I’ve listed all the products I used below the photos. Enjoy!
Happy Makeup Monday! Halloween is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! This is my favorite holiday (next to Christmas, of course) because I get really creative with special FX products. Nothing makes me happier than the smell of spirit gum and staining my hands with MAC Chromacake! Although I love all things glitz and glamour, I prefer to take a more “high-fashion horror” approach when it comes to my Halloween
