Hot N Spicy

My skincare and makeup tips for this season!

On warmer days, I wear bb cream and lipgloss because I know I get fidgety in direct sunlight with full makeup on. Here, I’m using a lot of anti-aging skincare products with a light layer of foundation, concealer and contour. I did my brows, powdered my eyelids and t-zone, applied a (newly purchased) lip color and finished the look with a thin coat of mascara.

Tip: I do my mascara last (after I use setting spray) to avoid transferring it on my eyelids.

9 Days of Glam & Beauty Food

I‘m sad that it’s already growing back so quick. I was with my friend and they were like “You can tell when hair is growing because it becomes darker” and I didn’t think of that. The idea is to buzz it every week as I’m enjoying my face more than I ever imagined and I think people are receiving me like I’ve always wanted them to. I’m actually modest as fuck in person. I’d rather be in the background and I’d rather not pay attention to anyone in the hopes they will ignore me... that’s never the case though, especially upon walking around like Mette (from N.E.R.D’s Lemon). Anyway, it’s St Patrick’s Day and I’m staying indoors, doing laundry and making sure I’m up-to-date on my entries. I’ve been totally influenced by the likes of a certain Earth “sign” who is helping me in all the ways I’ve truly needed. I’m surprised at the fact that I’m allowing myself to be shared as far as my time and presence goes. I’ve been extremely involved in work, the city and getting close to those who want to know me.  I’ve noticed that the more I stay, the more everything in my life prospers.

I really like a sun selfie when it’s done right, if that makes sense... clear and flawless skin that’s all about the highlight and probably good af editing. I still go for my monochromatic feel because warmer photos are kinda gross to me and being in the sun really gives away my true skin tone as oppose to my usual satisfaction in studio lighting. Like, I was reviewing my previous selfies and they are super filtered to the point of my looking pale. Lol, I don’t want that. So, I’m in a new building that provides a rooftop level where the sun comes directly through the window, happily keeping my beauty game on point. Not sure why I’ve noticed how scarce my social media engagement is but, I honestly don’t care to have the attention of those who are not going to share or add-to my work. I’ve been blogging for years. I see comments and I get asked tons of questions but, it’s just stupid. I only really value my friends and the brands who literally showcase me; David’s Bridal and Eats By Chloe hit me up this season along with likes (and comments) from a few verified users like Zac Posen, whom I love. It’s cool. I like the whole idea of being low-key and still acknowledged. I know it’ll work its way up to a more public setting where bigger opportunities will reach me but in the meantime, follow me on Twitter.

Tease — Red Lip Beauty

I don’t know why it feels like wearing red lipstick pisses other girls off, lmao. These days, I am b u s y as hell with full weeks to look forward to in the city. I feel like I’m living the dream! I’m a working girl and I’m getting by with myself while staying productive and creative. Like, I’m okay. And I really do wish the best for everyone. I hope we all fulfill our deepest desires but, most importantly receive and exert clarity about it. I kinda had a cry fest last night to get all of my nerves calm. I was in the bathroom, listening to music and thinking to myself “How many times am I going to cry by myself in the bathroom.” Whatever it is, it’s not worth it. So, I started dancing it all off and laughing at myself because as much as I complain, I still enjoy every bit of life.

Can’t name anything that tops a good makeup selfie when it comes to beauty other than being able to take pictures in the sun. I say this because it’s been ugly and rainy these last few days and I really miss being out in the warm weather. I wonder what’s in store for me these next few months; I have a feeling something amazing is coming to fruition this March as Spring tends to do for me. In the meantime, I’m staying busy in the city, trying new places and doing what I love! Blogging.

Quintess

I pulled out the maxi skirt, it’s been a while but, satin is in season and it’s also looking warm this week. I’m not usually so into the weather but after watching an educational video on how the earth would be with no sunlight, which isn’t something I’ve thought about, I’ve taken up the responsibility to go out more and be present. At 23 years old, the only thing I should be worrying about is my happiness and well being. I don’t know why I picked a Saturday with MTA running like hell but, I’m headed to goodwill, the beauty supply, and cvs.

Pouty Peachy (Natural Brows & Highlight)

I have not been in the mood to pluck my brows so I’m letting them grow back and have stepped up my highlighting game once again, yes, even though I swore I didn’t like doing too much during the winter, why not? My face is moisturized enough with all the aquaphor, I can basically get away with a full on mask... I’ve said it before, makeup protects my face from the city’s environment and being underground, in the train, etc etc.. And it’s nice to just look nice when I’m out and about like, I never know who I’ll meet or better yet, “bump” into. Speaking of seeing people and wanting to look my best, I’m currently doing a  c l e a n s e and getting my omega 3 back in check! I miss being toned and I can’t blame my fitness on the fact that I’m vegan. I use to eat a lot of salmon but, I’ve never felt more refreshed and health conscious since making the transition plus, it’s an obvious fact that my skin and beauty have evolved overall. 

Keep up with me on Twitter, please?

Beauty (Irish, Scandinavian & Cameroonian)

I have, probably, over 2000 photos on taliavoider.com now... I could post a photo a day on Instagram for about a year just by pulling from here, it’s crazy. I’ve done a lot of work on this damn blog and I decided to keep-up with a bunch of selfies in this entry, for fun. Beauty is v e r y close to my heart and since I have the platform to do my own thing, who needs a photographer? Really. Or a makeup artist, at that. Haha, I have it down on my own and even this classic instalook can’t be argued with! I almost forgot how much I enjoy putting that little bit more effort into my makeup where I have on full brows, a layer of rich face powder and natural false lashes to really dead it.

Cherry Drop

To be honest, my mind is f r o z e n right now, I just finished shooting with a local photographer and now I’m revising the original texts for this entry. I think there’s no one on earth who can do my makeup better than I can and I’ve actually been dying to do some beauty selfies with these earrings. I’m kind of in the mood to do a little more shopping but instead I’m at home waiting on the vegan pizza I just ordered. Who am I kidding? I just want to stay in and blog about the fact that since winter is red, I paired the earrings with a bold red lip and sultry sienna eyes.

Insta Eyes From Bed

After sleeping in my makeup and touching it up the next day, I took a bunch of “creative” selfies in bed just because I do want to always have makeup in my wave. This is really a new take on a traditional look I use to do all the time. Usually I’d go for a matte lip but this time I’m wearing lipgloss and of course, (now semi) bleached brows.

I really get into the day around noon unless I'm up before the sun but it's like the lighting is prettiest as the day goes on after lunch and I tend to gain more energy - by 6 o'clock, I want to kick it with somebody or simply make new friends. Take note, girls!

Outfit of the day and makeup and hair and everything that makes me, me. Not that it's anybody's concern but, I've finally learned to zone out and be about my own world again. This is precisely how I was before I knew heartbreak and before I was acknowledged as new money. I am square one yet also completely on top!
