BDellium Brushes Review

Hi Bellas,

Over the last yearI've heard so much about Bdellium (pronounced with a silent B) brushes.  A lot of bloggers and YouTubers have been scooping up these brushes at the makeup trade shows and I got the opportunity to test them out.  I love that this is an innovative brush line that crafts its own brushes instead of just slapping a label on them.  Check out my review on their Studio, Maestro and Green Bambu lines.  Please excuse some of my photos - I was learning a new camera, some of the pictures turned out nice and some a little blurry, lol.

Reader Question - Bronzers for Women of Color?

Hi Bellas,


I'm back with a new post that I think might be very helpful to many of you.  A lot of times I'll get reader questions and I actually will post my response on my blog since I think many of you might benefit from it.  Today's question pretty much asks, "How do you use a bronzer when you're already bronzed"?

FOTD - Everyday Greys

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another look of the day. I actually did this one several few weeks ago. When I use grey eyeshadow, it's usually for a smokey look. I decided to try something a bit softer with grey and it turned out really pretty. Grey works great on everybody and the color is great as training wheels if you're not comfortable with a darker, smokey eye.

My Hair! Cut and Color Process

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video.  I get quite a few questions about my hair and I decided to go ahead and just film the process.  I brought my camera along with me to my last hair appointment so you can see my cut and color.  This new camera I have has awesome video quality.  I'm loving the new brightness and clarity - but you gotta watch the video to see it.

Gorgeous Glowing Skin - Gleam By Melanie Mills Review

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review.  Gleam by Melanie Mills is a new product that has recently hit the market.  I remember some of my subbies coming up to me at the New York Makeup Show and raving about it.  The company contacted me at one point and I hadn't really followed up, but after hearing word of mouth recommendations I was really interested in trying out these tinted, shimmery body creams.  I mean, if they use it on all the celebrities on Dancing With The Stars, it must be good stuff.
