Quick minute of makeup

I'm not a professional MUA but I get asked about how I apply makeup. So here's what I've learned over the years. When you are doing bold eye looks please please please blend out the harsh lines!! And use at lease 2 transition colors! One color that is similar to your skin color, then another one a little darker. You may even need a third depending on the look. Transitions work so that when you blend the colors melt together. Your shadow should look seamless from color to color. You should have several blending brushes. And when blending always use a clean brush with no product to help from transferring color to the wrong places. And always use a primer whether it be concealer or whatever. You have to make the eye neutral so that your colors will show up on your skin. Especially if you are darker complected. Have fun and play with your make up. Trial and error is the best way to learn.

Quickie: Why are you a plus designer?

A) You can't dress a body over a size 20. You get frustrated with my belly. You want to drape me in fabric instead of making things that hug my body.

B) You complain about dressing bodies over size 20 that are not a certain body type. Sorry even if I wear a spanx. Guess what? I'm still gonna have a belly! So one that is innovative and open will be willing to set the standard and make chic fashions for plus size bodies. But you complain.... Something is wrong

C) You have the nerve to charge me more because you claim you have to use more fabric to make me a piece? This is just lame. No one knows more than me what a labor of love is when it comes to making clothes. being in the industry I have seen designers work tirelessly being their machines, creating. But do not punish us for wanting clothes! Plus size does not stop at size 20! We are not mutants or aliens we deserve fair pricing. Just like everyone else! Fair is fair!

D) You are an undercover fat-shamer. I see your Facebook post. I hear the conversations. I see it... And so does everyone else. How are you suppose to be apart of a movement. Supposedly creating clothing for plus size bodies and you yourself are probably plus size. And you are talking about plus size women????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

E) You want to be skinny yourself...

Unfortunately I have come across all these things being in the industry. It is truly a form of discrimination I am tired of. And I will not support you. Period

Thank you

How I Celebrate Saucye

 This blog is inspired by another blog I read on sarahpluslife.com recently that has gotten a lot of buzz on the net. But for me it was something I always have preached and practiced and still love by. Society sees us in a certain light in the plus-size community. They are quick to point out the negatives about our bodies because of their fear of becoming fat. But our job as size activist and proud fatties is to represent this life as confident, healthy individuals so that we can prove the naysayers wrong. So I will also do the body diagram with one exception I will not post what people see wrong with me. I am only going to post what I feel about myself, because I am the only person that matters. Sarah was on point when she said that we have to love every part of ourselves, I tell people who come to me for advice on self-love and body acceptance that when you able to look in the mirror and love roll in your beautiful bakery without trepidation. That is when the things that people think of you will no longer exist and you do not have to live up to anyone’s standard. But instead create your own.  So I know I will get people asking am I glorifying obesity and the answer is no. I am glorifying being healthy, confident and beautiful at every size. Owning who you are and loving yourself regardless!
