Congratulations to one of our favorite Youtubers, Jackie Aina as she prepares to release her loose highlight with Artist Couture, Labronze, tomorrow!
Like millions of other people I have been wearing glasses for most of my life. They are the reason I have such deep dark circles and a line of demarcation across the bridge of my nose. But I love my glasses and while wearing contacts makes the makeup life so much easier, I don't always want to put my finger in my eye. Here are a few things I try to remember when applying my makeup if I'm going to wear the 'ole frames.
This is one that I'm probably most tired of. Not just because I'm a makeup artist, or that I enjoy wearing makeup as much as I do not wearing any, but because it can be the most polarizing in terms of self- acceptance and awareness. Don’t worry I get it- YouTube pretty much changed the game up for average women searching for ways to contour and find the most miracle working product, while overloading the industry with professional wanna-be's and drawing too much attention to big beauty brands that exploit them all the more. Still, the beauty industry is only to blame for so much of what’s wrong with the idealism's and expectations that we have on ourselves and each other. It used to be that feminist’s only had magazines spreads and commercials to protest with their photo-shopped hips, silicone silhouettes, diet fads and whatnot. Now with the "Baddie" craze of social media it would seem that the average woman doesn’t stand a flying chance in talks of what’s considered to be the standard of beauty in America.
