As you all know, I am currently on a Fitness Journey and for me, being healthy and happy within myself doesn’t just include fitness, it also includes Beauty so you could say I’m on a Beauty Journey as well. I am always buying beauty products because not only am I picky but I’m always looking for new things to enhance my looks.


Below you will find some beauty items that I’ve been using quite a lot in February heck, some I’ve been using even before February. Let’s start shall we?


Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge


blender


As you can tell, I’ve been using this quite a lot. I’ve had this beauty blender for quite a while now but I never used it because truthfully, I never quite knew how to use it however I recently discovered the magic of it.


When it came to doing my foundation, I used to use foundation brush but it never gave me the coverage I needed but since I recently discovered using this, my foundation application has been flawless. It’s so easy to use. You can use it either damp or not. I choose not to. Applying foundation with it dry is honestly the best.


You can get it HERE or Ebay.


Mac Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder


prepnprime


I’ve been using this beauty for months now but it’s definitely something I can’t do without. It’s perfect for setting my under-eye concealer and it doesn’t look white at all. As it’s MAC, it’s pretty pricey however it’s very very lasting especially if you’re someone who doesn’t wear makeup everyday.


I brought mine from Debenhams for the price of £20.50.


Black Up Blush – BL02


blackup


I am very new to black|up but so far from what I’ve brought from them, they are a very good brand for WOC. When it comes to blushes, it’s not easy to find one where it doesn’t just look like you have a big pink spot on your face so imagine my surprise when I brought a PURPLE blush and it looks brilliant on me.


This is a pigmented blush so you don’t need a lot otherwise it’ll just look ridiculous. As you can see, it looks like I’ve hardly used it! black|up is a high end brand so it is pricey as well. I brought it from Debenhams for £19.


Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Powder – Dark


skinfinish


LOVE THIS. This is a product that I always use even on days that I have the minimal make-up. It just finishes up any type of make-up perfectly and gives you such a glow ^_^

L’oreal Miss Manga – Black Angel


mascara


I brought this mascara randomly during one of my mainly shopping sprees and I’m so glad I did. It wasn’t until I saw the advert on TV that I realised that it’s a new mascara from L’Oreal. This mascara doesn’t give you the fake eyelashes effect however it does make your lashes look much longer and as someone who doesn’t wear fake eyelashes, it’s a definite plus for me.


Watch the video below to see what other people think about it.

It’s drugstore so it’s not expensive at all so you can buy it almost everywhere.


Milk of Magnesia


milk


The primer of all primers even though it’s not meant to be a primer. An old friend introduced me to this and it’s been a lifesaver. Since I’ve started using this, I’ve seen a difference in my bare face. There’s much less spots as compared to the amount I had when I used actual primers. It also keeps my make-up on all day as well. I come home as I leave, flawless.


So there you have it. The SIX beauty item that have been good to me this month and I advice a lot of you to definitely check each out!

Just 2 years ago I got into wearing makeup and I have YouTube to thank for showing me the way to make myself look flawless. I am still learning, I mean I absolutely suck with eye shadows and I only recently got the cat eyeliner right.


So without going into details about how I just can’t get my eyeshadow looking on fleek, let me show to you all my (recently) favourite Women of Colour Makeup Youtubers.



In no particular order;


Beauty by JJ


When I first got into makeup, she was the first YouTuber that was recommended to me. After watching one of her videos, I practically brought almost everything she mentioned. Not the smartest idea since we’re clearly different shades and things work out differently for us. My eyebrow skills came from her as well as my hair tricks. I brought my first brazilian weave thanks to watching her video. She was basically the beginning for me.


Below is one of her old videos that was like my makeup bible at the start


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZhEK2RmMmo


Enibaby4


I’m not sure when I discovered Enibaby4 but I’m really glad I did. On her channels, I was able to learn more about the application of different makeup. She is really good with colours and I love how she incorporates her culture into it. Makes me want to play around with colours while wearing my Ankara


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KSVUlp3ugU


ijeomauna


Ijeomauna, just like beauty by JJ was one of the first WOC YouTubers that I came across. I really like her channel due to the fact that she was really relatable. She wasn’t video perfect like BeautybyJJ, more like a sister next door video perfect. From her, I learnt more about maintaining weave and making sure it looks so on point. I would like to thank her for the hair advices I got over the years. She’s not as active anymore but I still love watching her VLOG.

makeupD0LL


I recently got into makeupD0LL and I am so glad I did. She is so good with her makeup that I don’t know why she doesn’t have more subscribers. She plays with so many different looks. I know that when I perfect my eye shadow skills, it’ll be thanks to her. I want to say more but I feel like her videos speak for themselves so definitely check her out.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgIBZJW2ktc


Finally we have ThatIgbochick


Just like makeupDOLL, I only found out about Igbochick and I absolutely love her looks. She is incredibly beautiful and her makeup always always look so flawless. She is definitely a makeup artist to look out for!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EH4TxnCSP8


So there we have it. Some of my favourite WOC makeup artists on YouTube. I still follow a whole lot more because I like ideas when it comes to makeup.


What about you guys? Who are some of YOUR favourite makeup YouTube artists? Let me know in the comments below!
