I’m all about summer hair – it’s incredibly effortless, sun-kissed, and playful.  I recently discovered Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Foam Spray and wow it’s a hidden gem.  Now with this product – please note that  little goes a long way and can be used with damp or dry hair.  I spritz a little mist all around for volume and blow dry for 30 seconds or so for volume.  I then grab my wide curling iron and bend a few of the ends for that effortless beach wave aesthetic.  Lastly, I’ll finish the look with The Ouai hair oil on the ends for some gloss.

The BET Awards had to be the most lively and memorable award show I have ever attended.  Some major acts included Mary J Blige, New Edition, Bruno Mars, and Migos.  I went for a classic sultry look that evening:

It was an unforgettable night with a wonderful date.  Can’t wait for the next one! Xx

Bareminerals hosted a fabulous summer soiree at the ever-so-charming Catch LA.  Guests were able to play with the new lipstick shades – ranging from bright pinks to sultry vamp shades.  Hidden amongst the crowd was a lip reader – yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like.  Attendees were able to get their lip imprints read by a lip reader post smooching a notecard.  She was strangely accurate on my reading (shhh it’s a secret).  I’m very pleased with all the lippies and quality!

PHAMExpo is a beauty convention that connects consumers directly to the brands they love as well as makeup artist and industry leaders.  It’s a weekend filled with tons of makeup, fabulous human, and of course – SLAYAGE.  One of my favorite makeup artists, Patrick Ta, performed a demo on his signature look.  I learned so many beauty tips and secrets from the best of the best.  Cheers to next year!

My boo BJ Panda Bear invited me as a guest to Skyline Fest, which included performances by Eden, Lido, Miike Snow, and Duke Dumont.  It was an active HOT day – so I went for a practical look.  Body suit and denim shorts paired with some Nikes to be a dancing queen.  I kept my makeup simple but creative.  The white winged liner caught a lot of attention and I wasn’t mad about it.
