Sassy mamas! Fall season makeup is all about warm, earth tone shades with a bold, to semi-bold and deep lip color. Here are my top 5 must-have makeup essentials for a perfect fall look!

The first is the obvious…a great matching foundation. I use IMAN Cosmetics Stick Foundation for my perfect shade, which is Earth 7. Find one that best suits your complexion. 

The second is a warm contour/bronzing shade. For this I use a Black Radiance foundation that is 1 to 2 shades darker than my normal skin tone, which in my case is rich mahogany. The finished effect is fabulously radiant!

The Kinky Girl Diaries!

“This was my weekend style!  The only product I used before twisting my hair in 5 sections was avocado oil.  After twisting my sections, I twisted each twist into a knot and tied it down with my scarf. The results were amazing!  Especially since it only took me about 15 minutes to do.  I’m ALL about quick do’s since I’m busy with kids most of the time. So for moms or women with tight schedules who don’t have lots of time to spend on hair, this is a great option! Especially for dry hair.” -The Kinky Girls.
