Makeup Tutorials for Dark Brown Skin

With the thousands, OK maybe millions, of videos out there on makeup, it can be difficult to get through the shuffle to find a really nice makeup tutorial for brown skin. I have a list of my top 7 favorite makeup YouTubers.  I am not saying that these are the only ladies you should look at, or that they are the best on YouTube, however these personally are the ones I like to reference for certain looks. The list should give a great place to start for someone new to YouTube or even makeup. 

1. Ellarie - This lady not only has AMAZINGLY youthful, beautiful skin, but she provides great tutorials for brown skinned ladies. I would say her niche is more Viva La Glam, however she has a number of everyday looks as well. If you are looking for looks that are on trend that will look great on your sun-kissed skin, look no further! 




2. DestinyLashaeMakeup - Acne scars? Blemishes? This lady has tutorials that are especially catered to those that may have areas they would like to conceal. She also has a boatload of product reviews on her channel.  


3. Uche Natori - This Londoner has some great, easy to follow looks. She even provides a few looks that include easy to find drugstore products. 




4. Lananaxxx - Don't let the YouTube name scare you away. :) This young lady, Shawna, shows some tutorials that are pretty quick and easy to replicate. I do want to note that she does not solely focus on makeup. I really like her because she provides reasonably priced lipstick colors that look great on darker skin tones. And I don't know about you, but I like to buy drugstore makeup! There are countless tutorials where I feel like I would need to take a trip to Sephora, Ulta and MAC just to get the basics to begin following a tutorial. I feel I can achieve the looks that she shows without breaking the bank.






5. Nikki Perkins - Beautiful dark-skinned model. Need I say more? Nikki has a number of makeup tutorials for her lovely rich, dark chocolate skin tone. After watching her videos, I feel like I can create very professional looks. Concealing and highlighting comes off as a breeze! Plus, she has a very nice, soothing voice and positive energy. 



6.  Tiarra Monet - Tiarra has some nice makeup looks. From 10 minute quick routines to in-depth tutorials and product reviews. She has a great personality on screen and is a pleasure to watch as well. 



7. Karelle Muco - Karelle looks to be about just one year into YouTube makeup tutorials. However, from what I have seen so far, she provides some excellent, updated looks for rich complexions. I am going to be looking out for new videos from Karelle and so should you! 



Bye Lovelies!

How to Prepare for the Interview?

An interview can be a nerve wracking experience. What should I wear? What should I say? What questions should I ask? As a Corporate Recruiter and Senior HR Specialist I've seen some of the best and the worst of interviews. From my experience I've found that there are three main areas that people should focus on when preparing for an exceptiona interviewing experience.

1. Research

Always start any job search with research. Once the job interview is landed, this becomes even more important. Read about the company history, culture, recent news and any other insights you can find. You should also review the job description that you've applied to. Be prepared to ask and be asked questions about the company and the job. Next, you'll need to do some research on yourself. Sound a bit strange? Well, I'll explain what I mean by this. Do you know what skills and/or knowledge you will bring to the company? Do you remember the kinds of projects you've taken on in the past fe…

Reviewing 2016 and Planning for 2017

One of my top goals for 2016 was to pay off a sum of student loan debt. I ended up paying off close to $10,000 of debt. This was a great accomplishment, but I still have a long way to go. I am so thankful to Dave Ramsey and his 7 baby steps to financial freedom. The approach he lines out is very easy to follow and more importantly IT ACTUALLY WORKS!

Dave says that in order to pay off debt, we need to assess our current regular income and expenses. Then we should locate where we can increase what we bring in and/or decrease spending. Next, he recommends saving a starter emergency fund in order to ensure that we will not add to our debt if or when a situation arises (this is what he calls Murphy - Murphy's law). Once the emergency fund is built of $1,000, we need to list out all of our debts from smallest to largest amount and begin putting any additional income to the smallest debt. Continuing down the list, we use the same process until the very last debt is paid off. This is call…
